Discussion: Homerun - Hit and Sit

If you noticed, the umps were wearing green ISA shirts. In ISA, if you carry the bat to first base and touch first base, you are out. Even though this was a USSSA sponsored tourney.

Discussion: Brickyard Tournament Indianapolis

Go back and look at all the comments from last years Brickyard. It should have been cancelled last year. This year there has been even more rain. USSSA needs to step in if the local people won't and cancel this sooner than later.

Discussion: Local fields in Scottsdale Az

I will be in Scottsdale the next two weeks. Are there any public softball fields in the area that can be used for BP?

If you want the best turfs money can buy, look into getting Salomon Speedcross 3s or 4s. Trust me, your feet will thank you!!

Discussion: Cataract Surgery

No adjustment needed for me. I had over 75% cataract blockage on both eyes and didn't know it back when I was 49. After surgery everything looked like high def to me. It was amazing. Only issue was halos with on coming headlights from cars at night.

What am I missing here? SSUSA has stated for 10 years that the ball of choice is the Anaconda Trump Stote 44/375 ball. SSUSA says they are very content with that ball despite complaints otherwise. Unless SSUSA is tied to a long multi year contract with Anaconda, why wouldn't SSUSA look into changing the ball? Isn't it the players that support all of senior softball and are the reason any of this is possible? Is SSUSA here for the players or here for their benefit only? The cost of senior softball tourneys is high as it is. Someone is making a lot of money from it, otherwise it wouldn't be here. These tournaments aren't here to break even. SSUSA is a business and I don't mind them making a profit, but if the majority of players don't like something, why wouldn't it be changed or at least considered?

What would be the correct way to bring this up for consideration by SSUSA?

Discussion: Brickyard Invitational

Everyone wants to play games, but the field conditions after the Saturday morning rains came left these fields in horrible shape. Even though the sun came out Sunday, there was just too much water that had come down on them. A better understanding of the facilities ability to get fields in playing shape should also be known before hand. There comes a time when players safety must become the top priority. That was not the case this weekend.

Raining like cats and dogs here. 45 minute delay currently. I think we're done for today, imo.

Discussion: Best turf shoes out there

Totally agree with titanhd. I've been wearing the heel that pain inserts with Salomon Speedcross shoes for two seasons and no longer have any heel or foot pain. The key is to wear them at all times, playing or not. The Salomon's also come with a 2 year warranty which is very nice, if needed.

Why would I pay $35 for 2015 membership since the 2014 season is over. The renew online options need to be updated so that you can purchase a 1 year 2015 membership.

How do we purchase another 1 season membership for 2015? Currently the only 1 year option is for 2014.

Discussion: senior softball bat

You are going to want to stay away from all senior bats. The new Dudley Lightning may give you more swings before it explodes. Your best bet would be to get a UTRIP/NSA bat to swing.

Thank you for the clarification. Something didn't seem right about the ruling that was employed.

Discussion: 4 base error andrequired runner advancement

Bases loaded and ball is hit to the fence and hits glove of outfielder and then goes over the fence and is declared a 4 base error. What's the rule for the base runners? Must all base runners run the bases or run to the next base? Umps said all runners must run out all bases. Two of the runners advanced 1 base and then entered the dugout. Those 2 runners were declared out.

So is the 4A FTC V50 771 a different batch number vs the first batch?

Discussion: cor and compression

Depends on the ball manufacturer and model of ball you are using. We've been using the Worth hot dot in ASA local league for the last 3 seasons. They travel with no problem and stay hard in the heat, not like the Worth gold dots we used previously. The hot dots do knuckle more than the gold dot ever did. I've had no problem hitting the hot dot. If you're playing in any heat what so ever, my choice would be the hot dot vs the gold dot.
