Discussion: Out of the Batters Box.

Exactly, no way can you avoid stepping out of the box if you decide to go after that short pitch that hits the front of the plate. And, like myself, and any player over 6'2" is forced to shorten their stride to adhere to this rule. For any of us who play or played USSSA, there isn't a box due to quick pitches. When the Utrip plays the Sin City Classic at BLD, every player would be called out if they applied SSUSA rules in regards to being out of the box. I agree that if a guy runs up on a ball and goes middle on a pitcher and while doing so steps out of the box, I say that constitutes as being an out for safety reasons. This rule truly needs to be reviewed. And really, I've only seen it enforced at BLD Vegas, no where else.

This rule needs to be reviewed. Saturday night at BLD Las Vegas, the umpire, who was desperate to be part of the action, called out of the batters box twice, the second time it affected the outcome of the game. My objection is, only at BLD Las Vegas have I ever seen this enforced due to the permanent lines due to the artificial grass. And, only one umpire was actually enforcing this rule. I understand if someone is going middle on the pitcher, this could be a safety precaution. But at any other dirt infield, this has never been enforced, how could it? The batters box has been kicked out by the 3rd inning. And, talking to other umpires that were observing the game, they remarked that they wouldn't have made that call. Umpires need to be consistent.

Discussion: TOC 2017

This was my Teams second time at the TOC. This time out was much better. I participated in the Clinic on Wednesday and enjoyed the fellowship with guys from around the country and Alan Tanner was outstanding in lending a hand when players needed advice on hitting. The Allstar game was great, having that many people watch and cheer a game that really didn't mean anything in the end was awesome. The Tournament overall was much better than it was 2 years ago, the weather really set the tone for a great weekend of ball. I don't have anything negative to say about the overall experience.

What about in seeding games where run differential is taken into account?

Discussion: Bat Information

Unfortunately, the senior Salvo isn't very good, and neither is the Easton Elder BSR. Easton has never put much effort into the Senior Bats. They take way too much time to break in and never get very hot.

If you plan on taking BP or play at Cheyenne Park? Ensure you're armed. The surrounding neighborhood is a terrible high crime area.

Discussion: 4 Teams in the 50AAA Topgun Tournament???

Well, according to the rules in SSUSA, you will need to join a team within your state or a state that borders Montana. Not sure if there is an exception to that rule?

I put in one vote for Arroyo Grande for 50aaa. And will we be required to wear a bullet proof vest while playing at Cheyenne?

Actually I play both 50AAA and Major. That's not the point. The point is, the director for the last 3 tourneys in vegas, dumped 50AAA at either Shadowrock or Hollywood or Lorenzi. Be fair and mix it up a little.

I just thought of something. I noticed that Cheyenne is on the list of fields. Standby for Cheyenne as the park the 50AAA will play on. If you've ever played there, that's the definition of Ghetto. Last time I played there, a gun battle broke out across the street.

Let's see, Worlds 2014, 50AAA Shadowrock, Southwest Championship 2015, Shadowrock, Worlds 2015, Shadowrock. I see a trend here.

I keep hearing the excuse that the 50AAA is put at Shadowrock, because of the amount of teams. Correct me if I'm wrong, but Shadowrock only has 4 fields. Lorenzi has 4 fields. Hollywood has two. If 50AAA has the most teams, then why aren't they at BLD and Lorenzi? That's 10 fields using 2 parks and they are close to one another. I think the real answer for 50AAA being at Shadowrock is its the easy way out without pissing off the 50M And 50M+.
