Discussion: Soft Toss Machine

About ten years ago the talk was that The Wheeler Dealer was the one to get. It was found that it needed to be elevated on a milk crate before an acceptable height was obtained.
I don't know if they are still manufactured.

Bogie, it was great seeing you again this past week. I'm sure this is another great video, I'll check it out this afternoon.

Discussion: New Stote softball

Perl, we use the Team One ball in our league at Bishop. I don't know if there is a ball that flies further. The only caveat is that it reads "min 44/375".

What's up Pearl?
Without hitting the balls side by side I really couldn't tell you which one is better.
I can say that the Stote isn't a bad ball. It seemed to have the same type cover as the Micro Cell balls (It might have had a MC cover). I didn't notice the cover or stitching getting loose.

jfsully, I only saw one shot that had a lot of movement. We were watch the game between Team Florida and the NJ Hitmen and a long line drive was hit down the left field line. It started to curve to the left and all of a sudden it moved right about 60 feet. Everyone got a chuckle!

Discussion: No such rating in the rulebook

I agree Tols! One would think SSUSA would follow their own rules and guidelines.

Discussion: Runner reversing direction

The wise runner on third would run to the commitment line and stop. When the third baseman approaches for the tag the runner should step over the commitment line. If tagged after he steps over the line he will be awarded home.

Discussion: A fifth rating?

Kevin, yes, I have heard that about the 65 Major-Plus team out west. I didn't know Team Kitty was in the same boat.
I'm doing great, seems like I'm beating this thing called "old age", at least for now. ;)
I hope you are doing well, heard you were going through some things.

Discussion: A fifth rating?

I am aware of the four skill levels, AA, AAA, Major and Major-Plus.
Is there another level, higher than Major-Plus, Super-Major?
In the past I have heard this term but it was used in place of Major-Plus.
Dave or anyone else?

Nancy, you should have seen Coop argue with the umpires about the clock. The home plate umpire called time, saying finish this inning and then open inning.
Bret said no, we have another 10 minutes. Umpire said we started at 8:20am. We were one player short so I know we wouldn't have started early.
Anyway, he argued for 10 or 15 minutes but didn't convince the tournament director. :)

Usually next year's season starts with the Winter Nationals.
You don't need to do anything, beginning with the Winter Nationals.

Dave, I was playing first and you are correct, it did spin about one foot foul and was called correctly.
