Discussion: Batting Order Advice

I have an excellent championship team - eight players are excellent batters (with a few power hitters), three are average to above average batters, and the remaining three are below or well below average. My goal has been to get 5 runs in the first inning so the top eight bat 1 to 8, followed by the average players and then the three below average at the bottom of the line-up. All 14 players must be in the Line-up.

I'm seeking the "Wisdom of the Message Board" for some brilliant ideas or advice. What do you think boys and girls?

Discussion: Shoe Awards?

I also was told to contact Doug and I did. He responded a few times and then stopped after telling me I needed to be move patient.

SSUSA needs to get a new supplier or drop the award.

Discussion: Team ratings

Dave. How does SSUSA know that a player is trying to "sit it out?" I would think SSUSA would have to live in his head or hire an detective.

I can think of a few reasons for not playing one or more years: injuries/health, no money for travel that year, gets dropped by the team and can't find a new team to accept him (at that level, decides to take a couple years away from tournament play and wants to come out of retirement.

Also, it's hard for me to believe there are tournament players who just quit for a year or two/three/four years just to change player history. Maybe I just love the game too much to understand.

Discussion: Player tracking rating

Two situations. A player is on a major team in 2018 wins the world's and the team becomes major Plus. What is his history is a major Plus for 2019?

A player plays Major in 2018 and his team does so poorly that they re rated after the world's as AAA. Same question what is he rated in 2019?

Dave Please interpret section 13 - 1 - 1 - c for a player who hasn't played for 4 years and is now moving up in age to 80s

Discussion: Player tracking rating

I have a player who has not played any SS USA or other tournament softball since 2014. He played on a major team in 2014 when he was 75 years old. He is now 79 years old. What is he raided and do I need to appeal this?

Discussion: Partial vs Full knee replacement

Three surgeons have told me that I'm on-the-bubble and could go with a partial or total knee to relieve my knee pain. I'm 80 years old, still play with a courtesy runner, and play infield with limited range. I'd like to hear from players (or surgeons) who have had experience with either surgery.

Topic: Bats
Discussion: Carrying bat

Strange but true. A slow-running singles-only batter hit a ground ball that went through the shallow outfield. The 1st base coach yelled "Go. Go." With a surprised look our batter-runner slogged toward 2nd base. He looked toward 3rd with a big smile which disappeared when he saw the 3rd base coach waving him to 3rd base.

With a look that said, "You gotta be kiddin') he moseyed toward 3rd. He arrived well before the ball and hooted with joy. Then the ump, who was 3 feet from 3rd base, yelled "You're out!"

"What? Why?" we all asked. He said, "Look at your hand." Our runner looked and saw that he had carried his bat all the way to 3rd. "You had to drop the bat before you reached 1st base." (This was USSSA and that was their rule.)

It didn't end there. The next time this player batted he hit another ground ball through the infield but not through the outfield. As the batter-runner approached 1st base, the 1st base coach held up a sign, "Drop the bat!"

Discussion: Problem with Title bar

What I call the Title bar is the horizontal list of items starting with "Home" and ending with "Links."

When I hit the drop-down menu under "Tournaments" I get a choice of three items including "Rules" But I cannot choose any of the other three items because - I think - they interfere with the links on the second line, "International" and "Links." Fortunately I can still get to the all important link of "Tournaments.

Does anyone else have this problem or have a workaround?

Discussion: Looking for an 80s team for Vegas and 2018

I played with a AAA 80s team that disbanded and I'd like to find another team for Vegas this September and the 2018 season. I have loads of experience and have played at all levels from AA to Major+ for the last 25+ years. I'm best in the infield (not third base) but can play in the outfield when needed. I'm 78 this year and will travel anywhere. Reply to this posting or send me an email at fsisavic@hotmail.com.
