Discussion: 1 and 1 count

Rainmans, my solution is one pitch!
Games would last about 30 minutes and you get 7 innings.
I would suggest to SSUSA to hold regional and national one pitch tournaments😨 🎆🎆🎆

Dave, I was just wondering the "real" reason/s by those wanting the 1-1 count.
Playing seven innings is a good reason. I don't see that happening much if both teams score a lot of runs.

So, what I your goal?
As a player, what is your goal? Is it to make the game move along at a faster pace?
As a tournament director, what is your goal? Is it to keep on schedule?
I have THE solution but you may not want to hear it.

Discussion: Hottest single piece alloy bats?

I was going to suggest Ritch's Superior but I see you know about them. (I have a niw 32oz)
I remember the EST line had a small plug in the end. That may qualify as an endcap.
In the 70's most all bats didn't have endcaps but then again we used harder balls.
I would suggest you do some "testing" of different vintage bats with the balls you now use.
Good luck!

Discussion: Evil B.P. 52+ Softballs

I've had time to think about my last statement. Let me make a correction.
There are bats that will compare with respect to distance, not durability. :)

Discussion: Evil B.P. 52+ Softballs

I don't hit many Evil ball except in tournaments. For the past year and a half I have hit the NX3s's in bp. The year before that I hit the Evil bp balls (thanks buggs). Last year I would tell everyone that I had 5000 swings on my Dudley 12" el. Now I tell everyone that I have 6000 on that same Dudley. Well, today I finally cracked it. Time to move to my next Dudley, the one with the blue barrel. I don't know of any bat that will compare to that, durability or distance.

I believe there are exceptions. For instance, you might be able to add a player from a higher age group.

Discussion: Adjoining State rule

In one or two associations major plus is allowed up to two players outside of the team's home geographical area. There is a stipulation that if the team is, say, east of the Mississippi River, they may only pick up from the east side of the Mississippi.
You should verify these exceptions with each association.

Discussion: Looking for a Senior League Rule

When I coached girl's slow pitch we had a rule that disallowed "intentional" walks. The batter would bat until they got a strike. I would instruct my pitcher to try to throw the first pitch a strike then throw four balls.
My reasoning that we gave the hitter a chance to hit so it wasn't "intentional".
There wasn't any arguing. :)

I have one with a slide instead of a ball on it. It does teach proper wrist snap.

Discussion: Birmingham tourney? PLEASE explain

Brett, you know what they say, "you can't please everyone". I'm playing Wednesday and Thursday with a 65 team and now I am also playing Saturday and Sunday with a 55 team.
Oh well!

Discussion: Rule Joke

A few years ago we played in a tournament that was delayed by rain. When we resumed the base umpire told me that the baserunners, for safety reasons, didn't need to touch the bases, just be close. I then asked how close was close.
He changed his mind and said runners must touch the bases. Lol

Discussion: SPA World tournament in Dalton .... team qualifications

SPA should take a closer look at their methods of moving teams and players up and down. Their national tournament in Dalton has gone from one of the biggest to this year's disappointment.
I attribute it partially to their administration (or lack) of their team and player rating system.

I agree with neck10. Monsta has two models but you need to be prepared to pay!

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

The 55m and 50AAA have the same rating, 7. You should be able to play with the 50 team.
