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.

TWG, they ( SSUSA ) cannot make everyone happy, no matter what they do. I agree, if they are going to have a cutoff age, im surprised it wasnt 60's also.

The one thing to remember is that they are not telling us we have to play, its every player and his team that needs to decide what is best for themselves and their teammates and families. No one is being forced to attend that does not want to be there.

Jonsey, its a no win situation. If they do nothing at all they will be chastised for ignoring the situation, some will say its a money grab and they dont care about the players. The ' experts ' as of last night are still trying to figure out why it affects the over 60 population so much harder than those that are under 60.

I totally get why anyone over 65 would be upset over it. Id like to have a choice whether to attend or not, i dont want someone taking that away. Id rather play than be told that i cant.

I would like to think that SSUSA is trying to look after the players well being.

Discussion: PLAYERS CARD

Coop, Id call SSUSA during business hours which is 8 - 5 PST. I dont think you will get a new card posting on the message board. In sure Tiffany or someone else in the office will have no problem getting you a card sent out.

If you have an upcoming tourney and your fees are paid and do not have your card, you can bring a valid picture Id.

Discussion: Why 2-day

Dave, you nailed it. A typical weekend with full brackets have 6 teams in each bracket played over 2 days. NCSSA does not classify teams by age and ratings but by rankings. Teams are put into groups and and a group can have teams from 50 to 65 for instance. The teams within each group generally are pretty equal. NCSSA does a pretty good for the most of getting the groups correct.

They have had a few 1 day tourneys but have not had a very good turnout for these. These have taken all day with game breaks between each game
and can be pretty brutal , especially towards the end of the day. We ( our team ) prefer playing over 2 days.

Discussion: New Adidas Senior Bats

Easy enough to find out if these are approved. The bat will have a " SSUSA APPROVED 1.21 BPF " stamp or printed on the barrel. Both the 1st and 2nd generation Melee's were approved. I still have a couple of each. 1st generation Melees ( Reebok) are hard to find, 2nd generation Melees ( Adidas) are still being sold. Im certain these new Melees have been approved. It would not wise to sell a bat which cannot be used for tournament play.

Sounds like Lefty has one in his possession, maybe he can confirm if the bat has the ' approved ' stamp on it.

Discussion: interpretation

I should also add... why did the 3rd base coach send R2 home in that situation ? It sounds like it wasnt even a close play, R2 saw that he was going to be out so he tried to revert back to 3rd base. This whole scenario would have been avoided by stopping R2 at 3rd.

Sure its easy to say in hindsight, but from the above scenario, this wasnt even a close play.

Actually the tying run would have been on 3rd and the winning run on 2nd with no outs so wht risk it with no outs if there was a chance of getting the runner thrown out at home.

Dave or Staff, we used i believe it was Shadow Rock in the past for bp when playing at Golden Eagle. The question is , is this facility available for us to use Friday and Saturday? We are playing in session 3. Thanks in advance.

Discussion: rating question

The Car, I hope you did not quit for a few years thinking you would have a new rating once you came back. You will have the exact same rating when you stopped playing once you come back. Im not trying to deliver bad news, Im only trying to be helpful and let you know what the rule is regarding the ratings rule is when a player takes time off from playing.

Best of luck to you ,

Discussion: Softball bats on southwest airlines

Most of our guys use Southwest when going to Vegas. We were told that they could not stick out of a back pack style bag where the bats are exposed. I use a full length bat bag where the bats are not exposed at all. I have had no problems at all, the same for the rest of our guys. The bats just need to be fully covered.
