Discussion: Drum Roll...the Starting Count decision results.

Many opinions continue to be discussed be it increased playing time, speed of the game, action and things that make me laugh at age 63. I'm happy to just be out there playing at any speed. I am not sure playing 6 inning's or 7 inning's has an impact on anything other then if you bat 12th and you missed an at bat during the 6 inning game instead of going 7 innings. Really don't care one way or the other. This was brought on by this organizational leadership and not the overall participants especially at the 60+ level. No one that I have spoken to ever mentioned a 1-1 count ever when playing in St. George, Vegas, Reno, So Cal, Rocky Mtn, Vegas and Phx...ever. And I never heard if we played 7 instead of 6 we would have won...ever. Now the next fun topic should be covering the term trail basis---who on God's green earth is going to make that call...the committee or another survey...OMG can't wait. Done on the topic. Good luck & health in 2018.

Discussion: Today's Big Vote

Dave thanks for keeping this lively. I for one was opposed to the 1/1 count with or without a foul. However I will play by the rules. Just for kicks--look up the book called Five Dollars and a Pork Chop Sandwich and get the metaphor which was intend above. Appreciate the banter and when we meet someday soon....steak sandwich is on me

Discussion: Today's Big Vote

Sometime today we should hear about the rules committee's big decision on the 1/1 or 0/0 count. A lot has been posted and surveys have been conducted.
Good luck to those opposed and for this change. I have no facts but my gut seems to tell me that this decision was already made and now we are going through a process of putting lipstick on the pig.

Discussion: survey

r4pitch---I assume you are a pitcher...sorry but 1-1 favorers the pitcher even the less talented ones. Not sure how this national vote is going to go but I would rather have 1 pitch with no foul instead of 1 and 1. At least with 1 pitch no one has an advantage and as I have been told above the 1 and 1 count is not intended to speed the game up.

I voted for 0-0
If you really wanted to challenge the full 7 innings of play, there should have been another option of 1 pitch and max 7 run innings until the open inning. At least with 1 pitch I do not feel anyone has an advantage and it will definitely speed up the games and with 7 runs there will be shortened games because of run rules.

Discussion: Survey

This survey is NOT taking 0-0 for a reply. It is only taking the 1-1 therefore it is corrupt survey IMO This is like voting in Chicago

Discussion: SSUSA Convention Minutes

Thank you for listening, it is very much appreciated SSUSA Staff. Now can someone point me to a website in which I can see what this ball looks like? I've tried google and I can see some balls with the Micro Cell stamp but those also say ROCK on the front. Any help would be appreciated

Discussion: 1 and 1 count

I agree with Rainmans. For all of you wanting 1 & 1, for all your reasons such as 7 innings and speeding the game up. Go to the one pitch format. That will solve all of your issues. And just to be clear, most of us in our early 60s did not grow up with the 1 & 1 count. We played the game until it was over. Then local towns figured out a way to make more money and decided to go for more teams and same number of fields. Thus shorting the games with time limits. Sound familiar

Looking at the posts it looks like if you're a pitcher---your all for the 1 & 1. I agree with OZ40.

Discussion: The "ROCK SOFTBALL"

I hope that boat never makes it to port for the next 10 years. And I still do not understand why this is not a topic for discussion at the annual meeting.

Discussion: Rocky Mountain Fields

I want to thank everyone that helped put together the Rocky Mountain this past weekend. I am sure a lot of hard work and effort went into making it a successful weekend.
Scrap Iron was well represented and we appreciated everyone that traveled to the Denver area to participate.
My only disappointment was the fields. The infields were like concrete all weekend. Players were taking balls off their arms and legs. They tried watering them and the sprinklers just couldn't keep up. Last year wasn't any better.
Has anyone in SSUSA considered moving this tournament to Colorado Springs? They have a 6 field complex that are all turf, 300' fences and right next to the airport. I believe 6 fields can accommodate this size tournament.

Discussion: Trump Stote Softball Concerns

Last weekend we played in Mesquite and I want to thank the staff for all their effort and support. I thought the fields at Hunter were good (hard but flat infields).
My concern was the ball. In the mornings it played well however when the temps go up in the afternoon and I am not talking hot...mid-70's, it went nowhere. Major+ teams were having a hard time driving the ball. It was almost night and day with the performance of that ball. Not sure if the Rock is the only answer to having a ball that performs in most conditions but clearly the Trump doesn't perform as expected.

Discussion: Spring Worlds (St. George & Mesquite)

When you listed the St. George/Mesquite tournament for 2017 there were 4 fields in which this event was to played at.

Thus a 50/50 chance we play in St. George or Mesquite, if my math is correct. On top of playing this during spring break which doesn't afford us the best hotel rates etc.

Then you put out the number of teams playing, age groups and list 3 FIELDS available to play at...of which 2 are in Mesquite.

Seems you never had 4. I believe if we would have known that 2 out of the 3 were in Mesquite, we would have gambled on Mesquite instead of St. George. Not saying we would have chose correctly, just saying we would have known the better odds.

Discussion: Mesquite or St George

Has SSUSA ever considered using the SPA method of listing the teams who have signed up to play in a tournament and not waiting until after the entry deadline date? I would assume there are positive and negative effects using this approach.
