Discussion: WHY SO RESTRICTIVE

The best teams in the world (USSSA Conference) don’t have a runs per inning rule so why do seniors need them. Very simple, the senior organizations have sold this idea to seniors, run limits keep most games close, run limits keep games on time and bottom line, it’s all about the money.

HR rules are needed, however run limits are used primarily in tee ball and senior ball.

Interested in seeing positives for run per inning rules.

Discussion: Passing of Columbus LX5 Coach

So sad to hear about Henry’s passing. Henry was that rare guy that everybody liked and he never met a stranger. Heaven just got a good one.

Discussion: Birmingham tourney, March 3

Just a thought. Many of us drive up Friday and spend the night. Cost is pretty high for three games.
It would be a lot better if we got to play 3 full 7 inning games. There’s no need for a time limit. Our 4:30 game started around 4:00.

None of our games went 7 innings.

Discussion: Patty Mac could use your prayers

Pat “Patty Mac” McLellan will be having both knees replaced tomorrow morning. Pat is known by many as a outstanding softball player, husband, father, grandfather and friend.

One of his goals is to get back on the field and enjoy the game with his many friends.

Please keep Pat in your prayers.

Discussion: Batting Practice Balls-- Evil BP balls (orange/white) vs Tattoo NX3 Balls (green/yellow)

Both balls are great. My preference is the NX3 simply because of its durability. It’s definitely an ALL weather ball. Another benefit is when the balls get dirty we simply was them in soap and water and they look like new.

While the Evil ball, IMO, flies further it’s also much harder which most likely does more damage to bats than the NX3.

Discussion: SSUSA Convention Minutes

SSUSA, I think a big thank you is in order for your decision to change balls. Now if you will have more tournaments in Alabama/Georgia/Florida Panhandle we can enjoy this change.

Discussion: Trump ball used in Reno - 40 Major plus

The Trump Stote may be good in at high altitudes and cool weather but in high temperature and high humidity the ball is not very good.

My bet is if you polled all SS players on which ball they prefer from below list the Stote wouldn't fair very well.

Baden Fire ball
ISSA Tattoo

Ol Skool

Welcome to Pensacola. We have a very good Senior program here.

There are two 50 tournament teams, Doc C's a 50M team and Adiktiv Sports a 50AAA team.

We have a very competitive Senior league that plays on Tuesday nights and another league that plays on Saturday mornings. .

Look forward to meeting you.

JT is the real deal. Outstanding on the IF, high on base % with HR power, dependable and a team leader.

Give this guy a shot he's a game changer.

JT, I wish old enough to play with us.

Discussion: and ideas concerning "where to place teams in tournaments"

Vance, great seeing you too my friend. The Swarm 55M team is for real.

Hopefully the powers to be in Pensacola do the same with the 60's as you've shown above for the 50s and 55s. The SPA rule book is clear on the equalizer rule but the SPA has chosen not to enforce their own rules in the last two tournaments we played.

When the organizations let the teams dictate who they want to play vs following their published rules they have a credibility problem.

SSUSA please answer.

If you have a tournament with the following teams how would the bracket look?

5 60 AAA teams
2 60M teams

3 50 AAA teams
3 50 M teams

Also, would threats of teams not coming if they're placed against teams they don't want to play impact your brackets.

Ho

The tournaments we play are comprised of teams primarily from the Florida Panhandle, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee and Louisiana. There are 2 60M teams in this area. Under your solution we would never get to play an SPA or SSUSA tournament until the Nationals. The 60AAA teams we play are legit AAA teams so forcing them to play Major isn't the answer.

Somehow the equalizer rules must be applied. This isn't a new problem and you'd think the organizations would have figured it out by now.

Why not put all the 60AAA teams and 60M teams together. Declare the highest finishing AAA teams and highest finishing Major teams winners of their division?

Next up the SPA Souther NIT Triple Crown Qualifier. We've already been told that the tournament director may disregard the SPA rule book when it comes to what to do with the two 60M teams.

The organization wants teams to move up or force teams to move up but then discriminate against you and disregard their own published rule books at tournament time.

Where should a Major team be placed in a tournament (1) against AAA teams in the same age group or (2) against AAA teams in the next lower age group.

Sorry for the double post and long read.

In March we played in the SPA Southern Spring NIT. There were 7 60 teams, 5 AAA and 2 Major. After we arrived some of the 60AAA decided they didn't want to play the Major teams so RH declared the two Major teams would play a 2 out of 3 even though the SPA rule book clearly has and equalizer rule for this situation. Both Major teams were 2-1 in the RR losing to a AAATeam.

This weekend we played in the SPA Mid South NIT. Similar situation except only one 60 M team. The tournament director decked we would play the 55AAA teams, no problem right. Well, he decided to ignore the SPA rule book and forced the 60M team to spot the 55 AAA 5 runs. The rule book is clear, no runs given in the situation.

Discussion: Need your opinon....and ideas

Brett

I agree with Vance, stay with the 5 year increments since that's how other organizations work and how teams are currently built.

I also believe if the USSSA or ASA would take your ideas they could compete with the big 3. Currently the ASA shows no interest in this endeavor and the USSSA hasn't pushed their program. To tackle this on your own would be very difficult.

What would work in our area is establish something similar to the Florida Half Century Club. Play in Montgomery, Marietta, Birmingham, Pensacola or other locations in the SE once a month.

With respected softball guys like you, Jimbo, Don H., Dennis R. Bruce F. and others teaming together this is a possibility.

You cold cut travel costs, entry fee costs, hit a great ball and still play other tournaments as desired.
