Thanks Bob21

Discussion: COVID 19 SSUSA Rules

Hi and I hope everyone is safe. My team is looking for some clarification on the COVID 19 SSUSA rules specific to the following game rules:

Catchers wearing masks and someone on deck or assigned to pick up bats with gloves. I believe these are mentioned in your first Covid 19 rule changes back in April. I then read your SSUSA newsletter Volume 6 Edition 9 which states the following:
Game Recommendation

Players and coaches are instructed not to share equipment.
Softballs are to be kept in their original package until they are introduced into the game.
There will be a new ball for each game.
After a ball has been introduced into a game, it will be periodically sanitized.
Players and coaches are allowed to wear face protection (masks or face shields) during games and it is recommended that they wear face protection between games.
No seeds, chew, or spitting.
Umpires wear face protection (masks or face shields).

No mention of catchers wearing masks or the glove rule.

Which one applies?

Thanks for your help

Discussion: SSUSA TOC vs Qualifiers Status Changes

Good Morning and I hope everyone is safe. Is SSUSA considering changing some existing qualifier tournaments in Open states to TOC's? As an example those TOC's being held in California...would you consider moving them to another state? AZ or Utah?
I do not see CA opening anytime soon...the earliest would be early fall. Just asking

Discussion: Rock in Reno tournament

This is getting beyond bizarre in Reno...benches and grandstands are yet another concern. Who actually sits down and thinks about such things? Do they understand that most of us will be going through airports, traveling on planes, renting cars and staying in hotels or possibly casino's? Yet benches and grandstands are the issue. This is insane!

I need help locating the COVID 19 SSUSA Rules. I read them in an email sent a few weeks back but can't seem to find them on this site. I thought they would be posted under rules amendments etc. Some how I just can't locate them. Thanks and be safe

Discussion: Reno Tournament

Based upon the pure science of this COVID-19 why would 60's want to play at the same time as the 65-80's? Based upon the science this makes little sense. btw. Florida Half Century last evening canceled their 60's tournaments for June.

Discussion: Reno Tournament

When are we going to hear from SSUSA that the dates are firm and a go? Prior to May 19th? According to published reports on airline travel the average number of domestic passengers on flights is 17 per flight and 29 international. SSUSA could bolster those numbers soon.

Discussion: Any Chance for California Tournaments

California continues to make the COVID19 news on a daily basis. Does anyone really believe there are going to be SSUSA tournaments in CA? Sacramento or Hemet? 65+. If you do then youre living a pipe dream. With or without our new SSUSA rules its not going to happen. This has turned into a political nightmare and were caught in the middle of it.

Discussion: New Virus-Regulations

OZ40 Thanks for sharing Doug's article. I know Doug personally and he is a extremely intelligent person. I worked with his brother Jay who passed a few years back and had the opportunity to get to know Doug through Jay. The problem is that it is going to be difficult in my mind to reverse and reset what should have never happened.

Discussion: Tournament Protocol Changes

I hope everyone is safe. Understanding that if and when we get back to playing there are going to be some changes to protocols. SSUSA has had time to think through what those protocols will look like including signing in, proper maintenance of facilities including dugouts and restrooms. Will everyone have temp checks each day and will our team waiver forms be amended? A lot to think about while we have the time. Thanks and be safe

Discussion: Running lane violation

I hope everyone and your families are safe. As noted I have too much time on my hands and just adding to a base running discussion. My concern has never been the lane to first...not an issue IMO. However playing SS and turning a DP and the runner from 1st not getting out of the way or sliding...that's more of an issue. Each time the ump says I have to throw the ball for it to be called. I will not throw the ball at 65M and hit a person for that call. Why the ump's just can't make a judgement call is beyond my pay grade. Thanks!

Discussion: Revised Tournament Schedule

Hi
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your families.
I appreciate the SSUSA staff working on trying to put out a revised tournament schedule due to COVID-19. August looks like it just became the 2020 Softball Tournament of the month. St.George, Vegas and sandwich in Rocky Mountain which is my home tournament. There was no way to spread at least one of these out of August into July? Vegas is now back to back within a few weeks?
Thanks

Discussion: Corona Virus (COVID-19) Part II

Gavin5 Your assessment of not being smarter than the pro's at SSUSA seems spot on. You should have stopped there however you continued and commented on the risk factors. Staying home is really the same under all conditions? I wonder why the experts are telling us to stay home and use proper hygiene as the best way to stop this pandemic? They should have told us that going to play senior softball is also OK just use proper hygiene....and everyone does --we all know that to be true.

Discussion: Corona Virus (COVID-19)

1jonsey --take it a step further how many 65+ players play on 60 teams? I agree with the SSUSA decision on 65's and older...the right decision. The logic for not playing 65's was not used when publicly stating it's OK for 65's to play on 60's. Makes no sense. I am sure we will all get to play a lot of softball in 2020. One or two tournaments shouldn't factor into common sense decisions.

Extra Innings---start with runner on second and make it a one pitch with no foul. I'll mention it to the field directors!
