Discussion: Western National Tournament location

All of the Casinos in Nevada are open with thousands of people inside, yet playing softball outdoors, getting a little exercise is not allowed ? Drove by Graton Casino in wine country 2 weeks ago, its open, the parking lot was packed full of cars. I cant believe county officials allowed that to open.

If it was moved to Reno, you could call it Rock 'N Westerns.

Id like to 2nd Wood 1966's idea. Move it to Reno if fields there are available. I know its easier said than done but opening up in Cali in a month could be an issue.

Discussion: Catchers will wear a mask

How long does an average half inning take where you play ? Since the 1 - 1 count has been implemented half innings are much faster. There is no more waiting for a strike to hit the bat before the bat comes off the shoulder and the batter is ready to swing.

No one wants to wear a mask, but if that is what is required so be it. I work outside usally in the direct sun, i have a couple of accounts which have asked me to wear a mask while im there even tho no one is around me while imnworking. I know temps at times have been 100 and worked for a few hours with a mask on. I dont like it but ive never felt like it hampered my breathing. I know its a lot more strenous than tossing a softball back to the pitcher ( ok, 6 minutes at a time ). The point is, if you cant handle being out there for 5 minutes or more, you shouldn't be out there.

As far as litigation goes, is someone going to have a pre existing condition, play anyway , get sick and then sue ? For that id say is BS. Shouldnt the player decide whether they can perform under that requirement and own their own decision ? You shouldnt be allowed to have it both ways. No one is making anyone play, its a decision made by each player if they want to participate or not.

Discussion: Catchers will wear a mask

Is a catcher wearing a mask for 5 minutes at a time really putting themselves at risk ? Is the catcher better off not wearing one at all ? Do you think for a moment that it is SSUSA idea for catchers to wear a mask or could it be possibly an idea to present to countys and park and rec depts to show what will be done so we can take ghe field again ?

If a player cannot wear a mask for 5 minutes without having some type of health risk or breathing obstruction he shouldnt be out there in the first place. The threat of a lawsuit is such BS.

For those that have concerns about their safety, its understandable. There is so much contradictory information its hard to decipher who and what to believe. Id like to think with a little common sense & social distancing we would be ok to play. Id rather follow what ever guidelines that we are asked to follow so we can get back on the field then sit at home for another month.

If he has chronic breathing / respiratory conditions it would probably not be a good idea to play. If the guy still wants to play, put him at 2nd or 1st if the mask bothers him. No doctor is going to give a guy in that condition a note saying he should be allowed to play without a mask.

Benji4, as much as i hate to admit it, i think you are right. Cali, Wash & Mich more than likely will be among the last states to open up for softball.

A question for those that played in the tourney. What changes were implemented in this tournament? It sounds like you guys enjoyed being there.

Im just curious what we can expect when they finally allow us to take the field in Cali.

Discussion: Please, a story from anyone! Anything but Corona, Corona, Corona!

Early 90's we are playing in the championship game in one of our league nights for summer league. Its the last inning and we are up barely in a very close game. They are down to their last out. The batter hits a soft linedrive to our shortstop who decides to catch it behind his back. He made the catch and all of sudden they start swearing and dropping F bombs. Im thinking what are they upset for, its us who should have been mad. What if he dropped it and they came back and won the game. The swearing got so bad both umpires had to warn them. The irony is that this was a church sponsored team.

Discussion: Is Reno on or off?

The last newsletter dated May 13th said a go/ no go decision would be made 2 weeks prior to the atart of the tournament. Tomorrow will be that day as the tournament is scheduled to start on Tuesday June 2.

We should hear an official word tomorrow whether or not it is to take place.

Phoenix, you are correct. That is a strong possibility that we will not be playing there this year. There is 3 more tournaments that we have on our schedule to play there and 1 of those is June 6 , 7. The same weekend that Reno just got rescheduled on. We plan on playing in Reno even tho all the uncertainties.

The Pleasanton complex is one of our favorite places to play, it sure will be missed if we cant play there this year. Good places to eat next door, fields are usually in pretty good shape and one of the restaurants even has Pliny on tap !

Lets hope for the best, be safe !

It does not look good for the Sacramento tournament to happen. They ( NCSSA ) cancelled today the Manteca tournament that was also supposed to happen on the same weekend.

We were going to play in the Pleasanton 1 day tourney which was next Saturday the 9th and it was cancelled 13 days in advance. That is the same thing that happened to the Manteca tourney and Im sure they will announce by tomorrow that the Sac tournament is cancelled as well. At this time I think the ball could be viewed as the issue. Its the one piece of equipment that will be touched by several people, even on 1 play. We need for restrictions to be lifted further before Citys and Parks allow us to take the field again.

Discussion: Corona Virus (COVID-19) Part II

TAT22, while true what you are saying that some of those numbers will be inflated. But at 1st the only people getting tested had severe like flu symptoms and a fever due to the limited number of test kits that were available. As we speak more test kits are becoming available and drive thru test sites are popping up in various cities across the country. Now you can get tested if you have a fever, severe flu like symptoms, been in contact with someone that has Covid 19. The CDC is trying to track the hotspots across the country. What we will never know is how many people actually had Covid 19 the last few weeks and recovered. As more tests are administered and more people are tested, it seems to reason that the numbers of infections will only go higher.

How many had/have mild flu like symptoms but dont go to the hospital or their doctor to gst tested but instead ride it out like a regular flu.

I think if every single person was tested, the number of infections would be staggering. This whole shut down is to flatten the curve and not overwhelm the medical facilities. I have a feeling the numbers the next week are going to continue to climb in astounding numbers.

Gallon of milk costs $7.50 here. But to put things in perspective, a 2 bedroom apartment costs upward of $3,500 a month SF peninsula.
