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.

Discussion: new ratings in December

Just wondering what roster can you use if your playing in the TOC under your temporary rating? As an example if your a AAA TOC and in December you were moved to Major...does your roster have to be your AAA roster or your major roster in Feb TOC?

Discussion: TOC on East & West Coast

Appreciate the response and I was not questioning the best of the best. It looks like you are only getting about 60% of the best of the best showing up in FL.

Discussion: TOC on East & West Coast

I am sure this has been discussed in the past however I was wondering why SSUSA does not have a TOC on the West Coast in Feb and only in FL? I believe the overall turn out would be greater then 113 teams.

Discussion: Interference

I believe it is the umpire's call period. He or she has to make the judgment on runner interference. In playing the middle infield you also get into situations where the runner does not get out of the way and you decide not to throw it at his head or body. You then look to the umpire for help and in some cases it becomes a question of that you didn't throw the ball so how can you call interference. As noted in SOME cases not all.

Happy New Year

I was checking hotels for the weekend of March 23 thru March 26th in the area and it seems that it is Spring break time in the area. So some hotels were already sold out. Not know if we are playing in Mesquite or St. George it makes it difficult to plan ahead. Any idea when we can expect preliminary field schedules?
Thanks as always

Discussion: Why so many shaved senior bats

Just wondering after reading all of this --what is the percentage of time that the SSUSA has actually found a shaved bat over the course of a season? Take this year as an example was there anyone kicked out of a tournament over a shaved bat? I agree this needs to be policed by the team and manager. These bats have no place on the field especially with already using 1.21 bats and lively balls.

Discussion: Sun rule

Dave thanks for your feedback and once again no issues with what was said---all I asked was that the directors do their best. Not looking to add expense or additional time.

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Sun rule

I will agree with the decision of the committee however I believe each tournament direct should do their best to try and use fields in which the sun has as little of a factor on either the pitcher or hitter. I am not asking for the fielders just the pitcher or hitter.

Dbax did you play in those games in Phoenix? If you did you would have know that it lasted a full game and a half. I played at field 3 at Papago at 2 & 3:30 and both games were a nightmare. So before you make a post understand the situation
