Discussion: Where is the new ball

The new ball is available and has been used in the FL Half Century League for the past 3 months. With the SSUSA logo. As I have stated this has little to do with availability but has to do with a business decision I believe. You have boxes of the old trump’s sitting around so my belief is they made the choice to use them instead of the new balls. As stated above it can take that boat 6 months to get here. DD stated that they were not going to comment on this subject and they have not. He also said we will know that they are available when they’re used in the first tournament. I know in Reno that they wouldn’t even entertain any questions about the new ball. Was it used in No Cal this past weekend?

Summer is official here! Where are the approved NEW SSUSA softballs? Any update would be appreciated by the directors/officers. They are in FL so they still can't be on the boat unless they are being shipped via the Mississippi. Thanks

The "new ball Stote Micro Cell" has been used in the FHC league for the past 2 months with the SSUSA logo. So the ball is available, thus it is a business decision to use existing inventory of old balls. End of story!

Raider---it was the same ball we used a few weeks back at the Villages.

I thought the same at that time...great ball. The question is has the SSUSA received that ball and when will it be used? I was last told that we will see it when we see it at a SSUSA tournament. To date no one on this board has said they've seen it at a tournament. I was hoping for Reno but I really believe until the trumps are gone from inventory we will continue to use them. Just my opinion that is a business decision.

Enviro---that is the ball we used in FL this past weekend. Great ball.
If it's available why haven't we seen it in any SSUSA tournament to date?
It clearly doesn't have anything to do with shipping issues. These were supposely order in early March.

Thanks OZ40 for the feedback.

Our hope is that we get to play with this new ball in 2018.

Used a STOTE 44/375 playing this weekend in FL and it was fantastic. Much better then the Trump and not as lively as the Rock. I hope this is the ball that we will be using somewhere down the road. Excellent ball and it only stated STOTE across the ball in large letters. jc11 any luck?

Discussion: Team Ratings

I am looking at the rules for team ratings and they seem very concise, with little room for any "gray area".
Yet in looking at some team ratings adjustments prior to June, there seem to be some wiggle room vs. the rules such as number of tournaments etc.
Or at my age I could be reading and not quite comprehending correctly what the rules state.

D2---thanks for the reply. Not sure what to make of it other then we are stuck with what we've got and we will be playing with the Stote for the foreseeable future. Being one of the largest SS organizations in the world carries no weight with this supplier. I not sure who they are but I can tell you one thing---we should purchase another speck of dust from them. I'd shut them down completely. I am done with this topic. Thanks for listening.

D2 we have been talking about this new ball for sometime. A half year +? The new ball is no where in sight for whatever reasons-- customs, China, the company you ordered them from and we can probably go on and on.
Why has SSUSA done nothing to figure this out. Your commitment to that sporting goods company seems greater then us players. You are well aware that as summer approaches those Trump's in your storage closet just suck. If it is a money thing---just call it out. I can take that response and live with it. I understand that. When the board of directors decided to change balls in 2018 they should have done the homework and researched who could best supply the new ball within the existing timeframes. The ball is available. It is called the Trump Evil Micro Cell at the correct compression #'s. What's the concern with purchasing that ball--which is already within our boarders?
Common sense just seems to be missing here and I can't understand why?

Discussion: Update

Double D ---I wanted to check back in with you regarding the progress of getting this "phantom" new ball sometime this year. I may be using too much common sense here but is there any possible way this ball is still going through customs and shipping? Have you thought about canceling the order and going through another vendor. Or just telling us we are going to use the same ball as last year. Which I am fine with--it is what it is and we move on. This wait and see is crazy.

Thanks for the update DD. Best chance we have at seeing this ball will be in Reno end of May. If it is still missing then please find another provider.

DD --just asking and don't kill the messenger but we been discussing this new ball for almost 4 months. Why would we wait until 3 weeks before the event and order the new ball? Just asking--that seems strange.

DD looks like 60 majors are playing at Hunter --just like last year.
I'm fine with it--it's great to be able to get out and play--- has SSUSA ever inquired into putting up temporary fence's on the BB field's in Mesquite....and since I am at it...are the new balls in play come March 23rd?

Hey Dave...playing hard to get on this one? What's the latest are these still in transit from Asia Pac? You could always use the Evil Micro if the SSUSA ball is still out to sea.

Discussion: New Softball for 2018

Hi Dave---I just went to the BSN site and they have this ball listed...other than the name conventions is there any expected difference in play? Trump® MP-EVIL-ISA-Y Evil Sports 12 Inch Yellow Leather Cover (with Micro Cell Technology) ISA Softball 44/375.
If they're comparable --I could get a dozen for practice prior to playing in St. George??
Thanks as always

Haven't heard any news on the availability of purchasing the "new softball" that will be using for 2018. Are they available and where can they be purchased? Thanks
