Benji4,
I guess you and I have a miss interpitation of what each of us was trying to accomplish, no hurt feelings on my part.

Not trying to throw anyone at SSUSA under the bus, just trying to get them to have an informative webpage, that would keep us all informed on status of team we may face down the road.

I am 6'2 230 lbs and play on both 50 and 55 teams.

Hit 3, 4 or 5, throw right and hit righty.Team I play on Florida Automated and Team Impact.

Wishing I lived in Cali, because I know your team, watch you all play in Tennesse last year and would have enjoyed playing for or against.

Next time we are in the west coast or you guys are in the east will say hello.

Take care and good luck with your season.

Manny

To MR.Benji4 you may not be trying, but you accomplished your goal sir.

I only was using examples so that we may have some input to the powers to be in this organization. Apparently you may be seeking employment with said organization.

I sir am not.

Bottom line is the webpage here is not keeping up with the times, posting of results should and can be done on a day to day bases or a timely manner.

As for being a winner Mr.Benji4 I have won my fair share of tournaments and all tournament selection. I play to win everything and anything.

As for picture taking I was just using that as an example of how current that webpage is kept, not perfect by no means but up to date.

I don't want to get into a pissing war with you, so let's just leave it at that.

But one last thing, if I could find away to make the kind of money that is being made on running these tournament, you could rest a sure that the webpage I would use would be state of the art.



Mr.Benji4 I see you don't reveal your information on who you are sir. Why?

Mine is posted for all to see.

Wizkid very profesionaly stated and written. Maybe you can meet up with Benji4 and get him on the same page. LMAO!!!!!

Discussion: why?

Mr. Curveball, I have run tournaments in the past. Before the age of technology, so don't tell me how hard it is. As for deadline, if you set it make it so.
We as players would like and expect to be able to attend tournaments that are managed as best as possible, specially after paying the large sums that all senior tournaments cost, along with the simple prize packages ( look at a young buck tournament and see what I am talking about).
All I asked was, a timely manner for gametes and results to be announced and posted.
As for the pictures, now that you ask. I can go to the ISSA/ISF webpage and see, not only teams that won, but players who won MVP and action pictures of tournament play. Just a nice way for reconition on there part. And they do it over night, with same amount of teams.

With all the funding that SSUSA has, maybe they need a better webpage manager so they can simply access and post information in a timely manner..

And thanks BenJI4.

Why does it seem that other organization (without going into details) seem to be able to post information on tournaments faster than SSUSA.

They post the schedule earlier.

They post on going results quickly.

They even post pictures of team and players.

They post full results in less than 2 days after tournament.

How is possible they can and SSUSA can't.

Just questions.

Thank You

Discussion: softballs

I understand that for every tournament played directors hand each team 6 balls to be used for that event. If a team has old softballs from other tournament as long as they have the SSUSA stamp and are Trump gold 375/44 core balls can they be used in this tournament. If not how can that be stopped from happening.

Discussion: Why is this rule not enforced??

Tugboat, I agree with the batter box as you stated inside and outside pitches, but with the front and back I don not. One simple reason these lines are made up for standard play, senior softball play home plate is a strike. So now the front of the box is shorter because of the plate being a strike, lots of call outs due for stepping forward towards the pitcher in field of dreams. Not correct, just my opinion.

Discussion: Winter World`s

I don't particularly care which ball is used except for when I have never played with a rock in any SSUSA tournament and come to Vegas, where the air is nice and thin and our number 12 hitter can hit it out. Makes it a bit hard to start changing swings.

Just my two cents.

Maybe SSUSA should look at standarizing across the board.

It's enough that every senior sanction already has different balls, now within sanctions also different balls. Can you say 'confussion"

I thought the ball that was used out in Vegas was very good. What I don't understand is why there and not every where else.


Can staff please explain.

Discussion: Vegas tournament

I understand this is a very large task to perform, with so many teams coming in. I was just wondering why no posting as of yet.

Sorry to hear about the cancellation of extra fields.

Hope you guys can work it out to the best for all.

Jawood how do you know this? Magic Ball? lol

Would really love to see a bracket on this tournament a bit soon, lots of planning goes into this trip especially when we are coming from so far away.

Any information at this time (SSUSA Staff) would be definitely appriciated.


Thank You

I think it should be called whatever is fair for one team or the other. If the fielding team would have had it happened to them how would they want the out come to be.

Discussion: Baseloaded

Senerio;

Bases loaded, 1 out bottom of 7th inning, batter hits a ball over left centers head, runner on third runs in, but step on hitting home plate, home team runs onto field celebrating win.

Umpire calls runner from third out.

Question what happens next, is it dead ball no advancement, any obstruction call?

Game over,what?

Discussion: Baseloaded

Here we go again,can someone just say (Miken) or who ever has just introduced a new senior bat or any other kind of (ISA, NSA, Usssa or ASA) bat and not say it's better or hits farther.

Guy's bats are rated either 98, 1.20 or 1.21 thats it. Nothing more, nothing less.

Can't go any further than the rating.

Let's stop all this nonsense of the new bats, they are just new models, thats all.
