Discussion: POSTING ALL SCORES IN 2017

Titanhd, i guess when you read the newspaper and look up your favorite team you don't look at the score. So it does not matter if your team won by 20 or lost by 20.

Just asking!

I myself like to see how my Red Sox did, scores and wins and losses.

So, yeah if someone could just go to the bracket which is already posted on the tournament page and fill in who and what happened that would make me happy.

I think SSUSA needs a new IT guy that can give them access to that page so a tournament director can fill in the lines.

Not that hard to do with todays technology. All you need is a smart phone.

So staff lets move into this century and make this happen.

:)

Discussion: POSTING ALL SCORES IN 2017

Dave, I know you have a hard job keeping up with all the tournaments and all the ranting and yelling on this web site.

With all that said, if you did it correctly every night after the sessions, someone could go into the bracket and post names of teams and scores and who advanced through the brackets.

Does not seem to be so difficult to US.

If you like go to the ISSA web page and see how they do it.

Everyday anyone could see results as the tournament progresses.

Just asking (would love to see it happen here).

the brackets are already posted on the web site, just allow someone to fill information.

my opinion, hope you understand.

Thank you for reading and listening.

Discussion: Eastern National Results

I have expressed my opinion about this issue a lot in the pass.

I have done so because i like playing SSUSA , but I very much like how ISSA goes about posting and promoting teams that win there events, I.E. pictures of teams and individual awards and how the bracket broke down through the games played.(winners and looser)

I think that maybe this web site does not allow or at least make it easy to do so.

But it sure would be nice to see how teams actually did in the tournament.

Topic: Bats
Discussion: shaved bats

Pizzaboy, I know there are a lot of shaved bats out there even in senior ball. But one thing, our bats are not checked for compression, therefore when these bats get hot, really hot they perform more than they are suppose to. Don't you agree. So how do you check them and determine if they are shaved or just broken in. Hard to tell without opening them up.

I once had a black combat centurian. The lid keep falling out. I showed it to a Miken rep at a tournament, just after I had the lid 5200 back in place. He took the bat and put it through a compression check and told me it did not pass, I continued to use that bat and would you believe about 10 to 15 swings later it broke. But i know that bat was never rolled or shaved,

so my question is how do we stop it. How can we tell.

If you can give a good method of exposing the cheaters I am all in.

Discussion: For U hitting experts

if bat is broken in and has spider crack, better hit ball where the cracks are will last longer.

For me, just pick it up and where it feels best on the grip.

Hit away!

Discussion: Nationals Tournament FL Nov 2017

Lots of team in Florida to play with. Also look into Florida half Century, lots of teams there and can help moving into tournament play.
PS maybe post your past teams you played for.

always a good idea.

Discussion: Policy Change

I agree 100% with B94. At our age a lot of different medical issues can arise at any given time. also financial issue for travel purposes. I don't believe that even 12 players is enough when traveling to a major tournament such as Vegas with the heat issue and temperatures that can reach 100+ on any given day.

My 2 cents

What happens when no team in a certain age bracket and division goes to the eastern or western conference tournament, how is it determined who will represent conference.

Just a question

Discussion: last chance

Maybe SSUSA could put out a survey to see how many teams would be interested in coming to Florida in the summer, somewhere like Orlando and they can visit Mickey Mouse and all his friends.

Just asking.

Good get away for families.

Discussion: last chance

I have a question to Staff. Living in Florida and only 2 TOC tournaments and zero qualifiers does not make a lot of sense to me. I know we have the TOC at the end of the seasons but only 2 tournaments the rest of the year. Does not compute.

So my question is why?

And why not a least one qualifier for roaster purposes.

Discussion: Playing on two teams of different age and different ratings

Mr. Schoelen, I will apologize to you sir, but as how you wrote your first information on this board it sounded like you where on the 50's team and not the 60's.

I now understand your complaint after your verification.

the rules do allow players and teams to have higher rated players, but can only have a certain amount before they are moved to the next level, maybe that was the case.

was not there, can't take a stand on that.

I don't understand.

The team that got cheated here was the 60's not the 50's, so why is the 50's guy bitching?

By the way the rules are written, the players in question should not have been allowed to play for the 60's team because of their higher ranking, not the other way around.

someone explain this one.

just asking.

I can't believe you are going to protest a 60 year old playing on a 50's team. WOW!!!!!

Sounds like you team needs a lot of help.

just my two cents.

Discussion: What Softball Hitting Training Devices Do You Use?

I have an old Easton with the plastic end cap that I removed and filled with thinnest (cement). I take about 25 cuts forward 25 cuts backward and 50 hard cuts forward and back.(daily) easy and cheap, helps me.

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.
