Discussion: make the call

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.

Discussion: Getting released from a team you don't want to play for any longer

Just to put a end (almost to this) I received a call from this manager, his request for my release is that I and the manager of my new team give him our word, that for the next upcoming tournaments including world's, if my new team play's against his team that I sit out that game and not play.

How ridiculous and obsered is that.

SSUSA staff does this not look like revenge?

Is this in the spirit of the game we all want to be a part of?

How can an organization stand by and allow this?

Why would an organization that is comprised of paying, playing members allow this?

Why would staff not interject and say enough is enough and release me.

Please give some kind of reply that makes sence.

Please don't quote me the rule, book I read it.

Waiting for some kind of sencible answer.

Discussion: Getting released from a team you don't want to play for any longer

Dave,

Thank you for that. I will try to give you a accurate account, I got into a heated argument with one of the sponsors of the team. After said argument I decided I no longer should be playing on his team and flat out quit. Sponsor 2 asked that I not do that, but it was to late for me. Sponsor 2 asked for my shirts which I gladly gave to hime cleaned and folded.This all happened 2 weeks prior to Eastern nationals.
I asked sponsor 2 if he would be short at the nationals that I would help him out, do to the fact i was playing with a 50's team and they are 55. He said no give him shirts back I would be released.

I thanked him and proceeded to go my way, got a call from a 55 team that was short for this tournament and was allowed to play on that team after getting clearence from SSUSA.

At the tournament as luck would have it the 2 teams faced off against each other and he made a big stink saying he had not released me. Lucky for me we had email confirmation from GM.

Now he claims he only release me for that tournament (is that possible?) obviously the team i played for in Raleigh beat him and send them to looser bracket which he did not like.

I have just found out that he has to formally release me in order me to be able to play with my new 55 team. (wow) I have purchase tickets to go to Vegas with the other team, I am out about $800.00 for me and the wife.

As I stated above he is being a "big PUSSYCAT" about this. What to do?

It's all about revenge for him, nothing owed nothing borrowed. If that was the case I will pay him off just to get through this.

Wish it was as simple as throwing $200.00 in his face. Like the saying goes "revenge is a plate best served cold"

What can be done at this point? any suggestions?

Thanks
