Discussion: tournament

Nancy, you and I don't really know eachother except for board talk, just a bit of background. I have run tournaments. all I am asking is to move up to the 21st century, nothing more nothing less.

TD knows the scores and goes to the tournament board and move the teams along, win or lose.


If they had access to a website, all the have to do is insert name of winner and looser. Not difficult, again not brain surgery rocket science.

Hope you have great 2019 season and maybe, just maybe Dave will find a way to have an assistant (high school or middle school student) who they can pay $20.00 to insert scores.Put it in next years budget! If not I have a couple of grand nephews that are on their I phones all day, everyday and would love to get $20.00 for playing around on them.


Good luck to all in 2019.

Nancy, its great that you come to the aid of SSUSA, but first I never criticized them for anything but the lack of keeping up with technology, I also put player safety in front of anything.

Dave, you do a pretty good job when it come to putting together the brackets, especially with these many teams.

But my friend one thing has nothing to do with the other. This is simple, you already have the brackets up on the web, just allow someone to fill in the scores, does not take a rocket scientist.

I think you have a lot on your plate, let someone else eat. Plenty of senior softball players who may not be playing that weekend that have cell phones, call in the scores and he or they fill in as it happens.

Again not rocket scientist stuff, by the way I know for a fact that a smart phone can also access the web.

You continue giving excuses, with no solutions. I guess you and the rest of staff just don't hear all of the members complaining. Just look at your product, why would you not want to make it better.

I think I have said enough, I am sorry if this issue upset you and staff, but facts are facts.

I guess it's what they say "what happens in Vegas stay's in Vegas" At least when it come to senior softball scores.

Nancy, I believe you think it is difficult, but I am sorry to tell you it is all about access to the system. All that has to be done, is to give directors access to the brackets in the system. It's all about software, nothing more nothing less.

I know you don't want to hear it but ISSA (the competition) does is very simply, at the end of every day, to even include pictures.

So, I know you want to stick up for Dave and the rest, but facts are facts.

This is not meant to criticize any one in particular, it's so that we all can see and get information on teams that we have friends on.

Last year in Vegas only the 55 major plus bracket where shown all the way through.Did not understand why only that bracket. Again give the directors of each division access to brakes on web. SIMPLE!

Dave, just like old time. LOL

I still say you need help. maybe on a part time basis or something.

Don't take it personally Mr. Dave, not meant for you, its meant to better this organization.


Just like to see it catch up with technology and give its member up to date information, which it lacks and fails tremendously.

You must agree with that, Dave.

Wishing I was there, but circumstances and injuries did not allow me to attend.

Tim, thank you for working hard at getting up the above scores. With that said it is SAD that no others have been posted, the lack of information with regards to score on this web site is very sad.

Goes to show bigger is not always better, a smaller organization continues to out perform SSUSA, when it comes to posting scores.

All the money that is being charged per team and over 600 teams and SSUSA can't get these small piece of information to it's member really "sucks".

But again thank you for doing your part.

Discussion: Major++

Truthseeker16, the problem is not stepping up, it is a fact in the east no one wants to play Major plus for the simple reason there not enough teams, our team went to Eastern nationals, we where the only 55 major plus there.

The ranking systems stinks, but i don't have a way to fix it.

Need SSUSA to start moving more teams up to plus level.

Maybe look at amount of homeruns hit in a game and if team is going over the max on a continues bassis, move them.

They have a ruff road with this.

I don't agree with the fact if you win tournaments you are automatically moved up.

We won a lot last year including Vegas, but while we won it, we did not hit one homerun over the limit.Now here we are in the plus division.

As far as I am concern (I know most won't care) I don't see why this has come up, this team has not broken or even bent any rules. they simply within the rules have put together a great team, why are they being penalized for it.

If I was playing that age group, I would be targeting them as the team to beat.

I would also be trying to get on that team.

As for them have a sponsor, great for them all the power to them.

I can not believe SSUSA has created a special division for one team.

Don't like it. Not right!!!~!

Timberworks I am impressed that your team has done so great for so long, If I get a fake ID and move to your state can I play on your team.

LMAO.

Good Luck in the SUPER Major Plus Bracket.

PA I am sorry that's garbage! If they are the best, they are the best period, that's like saying the Redsox and the Yankees have to spot runs because their payroll is much more than other teams.

I call BS, if this was my team I would be going insane, I have played both on and against major plus teams, have given up runs and have had runs given to my team. But imposing a special racking just for one team, again i call BS.

Discussion: Hitter Not Running

Stupid, stupid rule, needs to change, what if the guy was slow running to first and was throw out by a fielder, how is that different, only because he went to the dugout to get his glove, thinking the last run of the inning was scoring?

this rule should be changed simply because when the hit a sit rule was put for HR the need to touch a base after the 5th or 7th run went out the door.

My 2 cents

an out is recorded and the run scores, if it's the 5th run end of inning, if not the 5th run next batter is up 1 out continue the inning.

I just don't believe it, never could expect this to happen for just one team. So now we have a super major team or ++. don't get it.

ok you give up runs or player if you are younger and playing major plus.

No advantage if you are same age and both team major plus. Correct?

Discussion: HOW LONG?

Tim, very well stated, a lot of complaints with the lack of teams that showed up, but that's only the faults of teams that did not choose to attend the Eastern National Tournament.

They missed out, they lost out on going to Vegas and playing for the National Title.(wasted opportunity)

This tournament should be on every team schedule. Not SSSUSA fault that teams did not take advantage of this event.

Without a doubt they should put this event on their calendar for next year.

PS fields where great and the balls held up in the heat and humidity.

Rating on both 10!

Discussion: Eastern Nationals

Had the opportunity to play in this tournament over the weekend.
First want to say the facilities are great, the field's are very well kept and they are adding more in the very near future. The grounds crews did a tremendous job to get the fields ready, after several days of rain prior to start.

All the teams should pencil this tournament in next year, it was a great time of year to play softball, a bit on the hot side but still worth it.

The new ball held up excellent in the heat and humidity. I think this ball will be the one for years to come.

With all that being said, for the most part the umpiring crews where pretty good for the exception of a couple that need some training on height 6 to 12 feet. and the need to verbally call the illegal pitch.

Dave it was great speaking to you face to face, take care.

repojoker don't worry to much on hitting, senior bat make up the difference, defense is rare in senior softball.


Good luck

Discussion: You Make the Call

I understand how this is funny, but let's get back to the facts.

1) the ball was touched by the pitcher, so if it hits a offensive player, there is no out recorded and play continues, until defense controls ball and time is called.

2) the ball is lodged somewhere on the offensive players body after being touch by the pithcer, so the call should be dead ball no further advance from the offense.

everyone is safe, next batter.

My 2 cents.
