Discussion: 50 Major Plus World Champions

Just want to comment on the great job Bill Medved (plate) and Gary Moreno (bases) did on the championship game. They handled the incident early in the game placing themselves in harms way in the middle of the fray. And they got the tough call in the final inning right, doubling off the runner at first on a great play. Tense nail-biter to say the least.

Congratulations Sommerville. And congratulations Bill and Gary.

Discussion: Rock at the R.A.C. Lacey WA

My apologies regarding the bracket breakdown. Game #4 & #5 Moody Blues Division were switched in my rush to schedule which led to the repeat opponents for a number of teams. By the time I was aware it was too late to do anything about it.

Looking back it's hard to imagine we pulled this one off without too many big challenges. A total of 34 teams played a minimum 4 games and we never really got behind. That shows great cooperation from the teams and efficiency from the umpires.

Ron Grassi did a fantastic job over at Rainier Vista and we managed to move teams back and forth between the two parks without issue.

Road to Las Vegas deadline is coming up Friday. Get your entries mailed soon or miss this final tune-up for the LVSSA/SSUSA World Masters Championships only a month away!

Mach One 40M is short for Las Vegas, down to 9 players. They are paid and scheduled to play 9/26-27-28. They need one outfielder, could be 40 and not on a 40 roster, or could be 50 and already going with a 50 team. By rule they can add up to 3 to get back to 12. Let's help these guys out! Considerable financial committment could be down the drain.

Just got word that Thursday play washed out at Delta Park in Portland. Just hope parks can get fields in shape to resume tomorrow! Note: Per SSUSA rules field conditions and play or no play decisions are decided at the fields at game time. Teams are required to be at the park ready to play at their scheduled time.

Discussion: STAFF question on scoring of runs

This might help, let's say same scenario as above, runner from 1st who did not
tag properly does not retreat, but is standing on 2nd. Infielder calls to
umpire (or doesn't - implied) and tags the runner on 2nd before lead runner crosses the scoring line. Umpire calls runner standing on 2nd out, and run
does not score.

Discussion: Vegas Umpires

I apologize for the first one. The wind was blowing right to left at about 30
mph. Without the wind the ball would have been 30 feet foul. High fly ball
clears the fence and is angling from foul to fair. I didn't get a great look
at it as it landed because I was expecting it to be clearly foul, the wind
fooled me. It may have been as much as 12 inches foul. Also there was a white
line that appeared to go beyond the fence but actually was painted ON the
fence. As you look at that white line standing on the foul line it would
appear straight. From slightly foul that line angled toward foul territory,
and was also a factor in what I saw. No excuses, I think I missed the call.

I and most of the umpires "selected" to work the major tournaments do love the
game and care first and foremost about the teams and players, and proving the
best umpiring we can muster. I still work full-time but my life is dedicated
to Senior Softball, in many ways, as a player, manager, umpire, tournament
director, league director and advocate for the game. As you pointed out, I am
human and I do make mistakes.

Sorry Rancid,

Discussion: Suspensions

Why not? I've talked to a few 40's that LOVE our game and gave up that other
game for good, no regrets! The teams in our area have settled down
considerably since they started. They support our senior tournaments and are
not causing any problems. Loose Cannon was a new 40's team this year. They
were getting pummeled in Major, appealed and moved down, and won in Vegas.

With the 40's added and growing, and the behavior addressed, Senior Softball
is going to thrive in every way.

Sad that this kind of behavior continues. As an umpire, player, manager and league and
tournament director I am disappointed to see this kind of behavior and 100% behind Senior Softball-USA in the swift action taken. Senior Softball will not tolerate this.

From another thread:

Cruzer951: 50 AAA
1st. Oh My
2nd. Tucson Bandits
3rd. Sluggers
4th. Kamikaze

Ken and I umpired Oh My beating Kamikaze in the 10:30am Sunday game. Great
run through the losers bracket for OH MY. I think that was their 10th game
with 3 to go?

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Flip Flop Rule

Have not heard an explicit answer to your question but
would say no. No provision in the rule to revert to
the original Home/Visitor if the game is tied after completion of the (first) open inning.

Have heard SSUSA leadership say there can be only one
flip-flop in a game. That too would imply a no to your
question.

Discussion: Growth of the 40 division

I've been told there is a gradual but significant shift
in the 40's thinking up here in the NW. The 5 teams
now playing in our area (3 Major, 2 AAA) and attending
local SSUSA events are having a great time and they're
spreading the word. I expect we could have 10 teams
from the NW by 2015. If that trend spreads throughout
the country there could be 90 teams at Worlds in a
couple years!

So any of you 40's who frequent the message board, what
do you really like about SSUSA, beyond the obvious 5GG
and bat/ball combination?

Also, what can we do to attract the average 40's
players?
