Discussion: A True Equalizer

Benji, even though I'm only a lowly AAA player I tend to agree with you. I don't want no stinking handicap that way after we get done kicking your ass you can't use the excuse that we had a handicap.

Seriously, I'd play either way but if you're going to have a handicap system then it has to be one that gives the lower rated team a fair chance to win. That's what a handicap is. That being said I'd be all for no handicaps but you would have to separate classes after pool play otherwise why have skill levels at all?

Discussion: bat break in

On their site it reads:

"Unlike the rolling of a baseball bat which is literally just crushing the fibers and doing long term damage to the bat, our process will not damage the bat nor will it void the manufactures warranty nor would it make the bat illegal in any leagues or tournaments."

This is the part that makes me think it's illegal:

"Due to Proprietary information concerns, we are only going to say that heat and a stretching of the carbon fiber's all the way up and down and around the barrel is a part of this treatment."

Sounds like they're rolling it while it's heated? Heating it will make the fibers less brittle and more likely to stretch than break? Just a guess.


This would appear to the average person that not only are they not buying an altered bat but that it is OKAY with all sanctioning bodies. I am hoping that SSUSA staff will post here if that is in fact true or a misrepresentation by Kellys.

Wes, national games are held every year. Last year Minneapolis, Minnesota. This year is Birmingham Alabama.

Discussion: player fees

I am a sponsor so my/our situation is different. I, as sponsor, pay for uniforms and all entry fees. Travel and lodging is the responsibility of the players. Hasn't been a problem for us.
Would you be able to just calculate Uniform costs and entry fees and have your players book their own travel and lodging plans? It simplifies things and will make the amount you need to collect from your players much less.

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

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.
