Paulie's profile says he's from Texas and plays 50+ if that helps.

Discussion: Northeast Championships Results Session One

Congrats to all who played, a lot of great teams competed hard all weekend.

I've posted up pictures of all the brackets on our team facebook page.

Discussion: looking for two or three major-plus players to play in Reno

I hear ya Chico, a team up here played in over a half dozen tournaments and never did better than .500, won a 4 team tournament and got moved from AAA to Major. They split up over it and now over half the guys on the team have nowhere to play. Nobody cares.

Discussion: Tourney updates

I know this has been brought up in the past but I need to bring it up again. I have a few friends playing in the ACC this weekend in Loudon and it would be nice to be able to see how their teams are doing. It would not be difficult at all to have the TD take pictures of the tournament brackets at the end of each day of play and post them to social media. It might take a whole 10 minutes to do? It would certainly make a lot of players happy. It is time for SSUSA to step up their game technologically speaking.

I follow SSUSA on both Facebook and Twitter and I'm beginning to wonder why. Step it up guys, what I'm suggesting is far too easy to not be done.

As long as he's standing still I'd have no problem with it.

Discussion: why?

I have to agree that this is something that should already be in place. That being said I believe there are some very simple solutions available. I follow SSUSA On Facebook and Twitter. I thought they were stepping up their game in February during the TOC in Florida with all the updates they were posting . It ended up being inconsistent and incomplete but I did enjoy seeing what they posted. I think this gives us a very simple solution to this problem.
My suggestion is, at each tournament, before putting the brackets away at the end of the day simply take a picture of each one and post it to social media. This would increase SSUSA's exposure on social media tenfold as well as satisfying everyone's need for instant updates. Sounds like a win-win to me.

Discussion: Half Run Rule

KP&R, Losing by an earned run is a lot different than losing by an UNEARNED 1/2 run. I don't want to win or lose that way.

Discussion: Half Run Rule

Imagine losing the championship game of a tournament 19 1/2 - 19? Pretty big drawback to me.

Discussion: Vegas 50's Fields

I played 50AAA at Lorenzi last year and thought it was a good complex, I didn't find the neighborhood to be an issue at all. Granted, I didn't go for a stroll either but the park is pretty isolated for the most part. I also played at Doc Romeo and that wasn't bad either. When you have that many teams to accommodate you need a lot of fields.
Those are the only 2 complexes I've played at in Vegas, we'll be back this year.

Discussion: missing first base

I meant to convey that I know that's how it's called and I just disagree with it.
I think on a play at 1st where the fielder throws to the bag and the runner misses the bag and the ump sees it then he should call him out. That IS why he's there, right? Balls, strikes, fair, foul, out, safe, etc. That's all I'm saying, not trying to argue.

Discussion: missing first base

I don't get it. If the runner beats the throw to first but passes over the bag and the ump sees him miss the bag he is still supposed to call him safe and wait for an appeal? That makes zero sense.

Discussion: Buy in programs

As a follow up, my team just did a buy in/partial equipment sponsorship with Miken Sports. I can't say enough what a great deal this is. The entire process went off without a hitch. We received our gear last week and everything was perfect. We had 13 players take advantage of this and when I handed out the gear Sunday morning at batting practice(indoor cages, too cold outside), lets just say there were a lot of smiling faces.
I put about a 100 swings on my new 27oz. Big Cat and the bat feels great, lots of pop, I think it's going to live up to the hype. Can't wait to get out on a field with it and see what it's really got.

Discussion: same team playing in two different age groups

Just a hypothetical situation, I have a 15 player roster and every player is 54 and every player turns 55 this season. This team played 50M last season. The team now plays as 55M and can play as 50 AAA?

Discussion: same team playing in two different age groups

I'm trying to understand how the rating rules apply. If for instance my team is 50M and next season the youngest player on our roster turns 55, we would then be eligible to play 55M? Also if I read this correctly we could play 50M and/or 50AAA as the rating index would be the same?

Discussion: Team pages

Does anyone have a website or facebook page for their team? If you do post up a link here. Last year I created a facebook page for the team I play on/sponsor, we play league together and were trying to put the league team into a few tournies but individual schedules made it impossible. We ended up combining with a couple other tournament teams that folded and poof, a new tournament team was formed. So now our page covers both teams.

SSUSA staff, if posting up team pages is not allowed please delete this.

xavier, you may want to reread what I wrote. After reading your response I think you may have misunderstood it.

Discussion: POWER HITTERS

xavier, perhaps you're new to internet forums so I'll try to help out. Since you've joined this site you have done nothing but give people a hard time yet you complain that you're being bashed. Now you're starting with the name calling(Slack jaw) and you think anyone's going to take you serious?

You may be a great hitter and may have lots to offer but the way in which you're trying to do it is very abrasive and will rub people the wrong way. Lighten up a little bit brother, we are not the enemy here.
