Discussion: Rule Clarification for Vegas??

Dave I have not been able to find the rules page for Worlds player consideration.
Could you possibly do a cut and past?
Thanks.

Discussion: Batting Order Advice

To quote a wise man who once said about managing, "this job doesn't pay very well".
Unless your team is sponsored then everyone normally has to pay their own way, I try to use the equal pay, equal pay approach when making line ups for tournaments.
We keep batting averages for the seeding games and beyond, everyone hits, then decisions are made on who plays and sits during bracket games.
Top hitters go at the top of the line up to get the best advantage to get the five run first inning as much as possible and get more at bats after that.
It's a guessing game because no one has the crystal ball and after all the hopes and wishes of the manager it's still up to the players to perform.
Looking at the Western Nationals, the winner of the 60AAA division scored an average of 15 runs per game, that is just a tick above 2 runs per inning.
Emphasis is put upon scoring in SS but so many other factors go into play that determine winning and losing on a game basis and tournament basis.
Brian Sabean, the general manager of the S.F. Giants after they won the 2010 World Series had a quote that said. "you don't pick the time, the time picks you".
Good luck in Worlds everyone, stay healthy, be safe, and who knows, the time may pick you.

Discussion: Grounds Crew

Dave knowing that I don't miss an opportunity to bring field related issues to your attention here's another one:
Western Nationals Maidu Complex
we are embroiled in a dog fight of a game that started at 6;30 p.m.
Top of open inning and it's getting dark, opponent is still scoring and Umpire in chief says the lights are not coming on and we have to resume the game at 7:a.m.next morning. Much mayhem ensues with why? Where's the lights? UIC says the site supervisor was supposed to have the lights on at 7;30, mayhem resumes, UIC says stop play, more mayhem, UIC says finish the game, we do under the near cover of night.
Obviously SSUSA is not responsible but the City of Roseville (which by the way the field director was attempted to be reached to no avail).
Sorry scenario obviously,only future solution, 1. Every team bring a roll of quarters for the lights, 2.Everyone can pull their cars around the field with their lights on so the game can be finished. Insert smiley face here.

Discussion: 60s Vegas Sept. 17 - 19

Chief you cannot be picked up by a team for Vegas unless a certain team falls below 10 players. All rosters for Vegas World or National tournaments are locked and only players who played in qualifiers are eligible for said tournaments.

Discussion: How to call a tag play when view is obstructed

Franjan if you were a witness for the prosecution in a criminal trial the defense attorney would eat you for lunch.
You cannot make that call on what you thought but on what you actually saw.

Gotcha, this was actually my second post that somehow the first post did not enter into hyper space, (or the space between my ears).

Discussion: Dont blame SSUSA for the ball problem.

My earlier post on this subject in another thread fell upon deaf ears so hear I go again.
Is BSN the only supplier of the Stote ball?
Can the argument be eliminated by sourcing this ball from other distributors?
If I can't get Charmin toilet paper from Costco do I go with an inferior item or do I just go to Walmart?

Any options on getting the Stote from another source besides BSN?
Direct Sports shows it on their website.

Franjan do those shorts come with a lanyard and coaches whistle?
That would really complete the ensemble along with striped white calf socks.

Discussion: SO CAL CHAMPIONSHIPS (HEMET)

If California is supposed to open on 6/15 what does that mean for the Sacramento tournament that starts the weekend before?
Here in Fresno we started our league three weeks ago? What's the difference between a local league which started under state guidelines and a SSUSA event?

Discussion: merging stronger players with weaker players at local level

This is an issue in our league.First off SSSUA has all players sign a waiver form stating that softball is a game of risk. Weaker players have choices in mixed leagues with stronger players, most weaker players catch and are hidden from injury that way. Unfortunately there are too many 70 plus year olds playing in the 50's division, but the league our does not discriminate against that because it is deemed a "recreational league.
If stronger players do not want to co-mingle with weaker players that is their choice, just as weaker players choose to play fully knowing that they may be at risk with players that are younger, faster stronger, etc.
Restricting either or both based upon safety is what got metal tipped lawn darts banned.

Is Carson City going to be used for the Rockin Reno tournament and if so what age groups and when will we know.
This is obviously for hotel reasons.
