Discussion: New fields in Florida

No bashing going on here Tim. Just wondering why and why not.

Florida has a large amount of teams and a lot more out of Georgia and Alabama. As for Half Century you are correct twice a month, once for 50's and 1 for 60's.

leaves 2 more weekends out of a month,so. I don't think that is a good enough reason.

another point is Polk County has no easy fly in and out major airport, Orlando int'l is not to far from fields.

My 2 cents.

This is meant for SSUSA staff. Have you seen the new fields in Sanford Fl?

Wow, the are 100% turf with fences at 315ft and they have six right next to each other, these fields are the best I ever played on.

Question: if they are available for tournament play, why is SSUSA not playing on them?

Why in the whole state of Florida is SSUSA only running 3 tournaments a year and one of them is the TOC?

Think someone needs to take a good look at this facility. ( near Orlando, maybe more teams would come to see Mickey and hotels are better than Polk county)

Just wonder why?

Discussion: Rock'nReno scores

I like to take my hat off to whoever took the time to post all the scores for this tournament. Finally someone stepped up and got scores on line.

I only hope that it continues with further tournaments around the country.

GREAT JOB!

Discussion: make the call

Brett (coop) ball was called in field fly rule if fair. If ball drifts foul and player makes the catch then one out. runner can only try to advance if caught and does so at his own risk, which then another out can result if a play is made on him,

first, question was the runner in fair territory? if so 2 outs are recorded. If runner is in foul territory then only one out, nothing else can happen. my understanding.

Because they have an old style web page and no one that can manage it properly. They need to get with the program and update there technology.

Directors need to have access to the web page in order to post scores. It doesn't take much, just the right system in order to get it done.

Don't know if this will cause some issues but don't care. ISSA at least gives out windbreakers and plaques to the tournament MVP, just a bit nicer than the patches.

I have received travel bags in the past from SSUSA, have seen any given out in the last 3 or 4 years.

just my two cents.

Discussion: Roaster

Staff, one question if a forfeit is not a game played then why does it count as a loss. Not logical! Games are set at a certain time,ROSTERS are due in at first game, PERIOD.

By allowing this action yesterday, today or tomorrow SSUSA is opening itself up for a big can of worms.

Also might be making it a bit difficult for tournament directors.

Simplicity makes the world better.

My question where answered by staff, that's all I needed. This was not directed to to you or any specific team or individual. Just wanted to get the rules right.

As for the mistake of roaster vs roster, you and everybody can laugh a my expense.I can handle it.

No, Dave. sorry you are incorrect. I just wanted clarification on the whole scenario. So when I win the powerball and start my own team I can get the rules correct, LMAO.

Discussion: Roaster

This question is for all managers and SSUSA staff. As a former manager I believed that my roaster had to be approved prior to tournament and then it was to be turned in at managers meeting. if I had any add ons, they need to be on roaster at the managers meeting. After the meeting no players could be added. Also if I did not attend the meeting no further players could be added and the roaster was frozen.

Also was there not a rule once implemented that a team who forfeited a seeding game prior to the start of tournament was disqualified for said tournament.

If no said rule was implemented I understand.

Now if a team forfeits first game then shows up to second game and adds a player on the roaster, is this not a direct violation of the rules and what would be the penalty at that time.


Thank You

Discussion: Out of the Batters Box.

The permanent batters box is set using reqular softball rules, where the plate is not a strike. Therefore by making the plate a strike the batter now looses that distance between the end of the plate and the front of the plate.

So, the batter is at a disadvantage.

simple math gentleman.

Discussion: Softball Burnout

Paco, it was great playing against you guys in Tampa this past January. I feel your pain, playing on a major plus team is a big disappointment been there done that. As you stated not enough teams playing, worth spending all that money to play in a tournament.

In my opinion what needs to happen is that all associations elimante the plus division and put in a 8 homerun rule, plus one up. I believe all major teams can compete in this type of format, if they can't then they should be a triple A team.


Therefore when a tournament is held there will be enough teams to have a competitive and full tournament.

Not this 2 team best of 3 crap.

Just my 2 cents worth.

Discussion: triple play?

the SS must tag the runner on second first before stepping on the bag, if he steps on bag first then the runner on the bag is safe. No triple play.
