Discussion: Stepping out of the front of the box?

Part of the problem is the inconsistency with the umpires. Those of us who played 55M at Sunset had lousy NSA umpires who basically told us they weren't going to call out of the box unless it was "blatant". While I'm sure at BLD or other parks, it was being enforced.

There are Flag Day tourneys on June 12th and June 14th, but I am fairly sure they are at Lorenzi from 7:30AM to 1:00PM.

Kudos to SSUSA for keeping all the brackets and scores updated! We all complain a lot about the lack of updates and it is very appreciated that the Spring Worlds was kept up to date and we have all the scores and brackets complete! Thanks!

Discussion: Ratings

Idaho - really? "How" you win should not be a factor. If Enviro-Vac did not get bumped up - at least temporarily, then that is NOT how SSUSA normally does it. There have been many teams win at the major level that way, get bumped up to +, lose, then get moved back down. It is the correct thing to do. My friends on The Core would have loved the same treatment last year.

Under "Program" select Men's Masters. Then you can also choose what State and/or date range.

FYI - they are mostly in CA or TX

Discussion: Curious End of Year Re-Rating

It is interesting that Elmwood Sports Center finished 2nd in 50M @ the WMC, was bumped to M+, complained heavily that the team that beat them in the championship should have been M+, and now there moved BACK to 50M? Perhaps their roster changed? Guys moved to 55?

Hmmm.. Keg at 2nd? Sounds like a good way to get more teams to play 5-man

Discussion: 1 and 1 count

Couldn't agree more with Crusher. At the least, the CR should not be allowed for any runner after they reach second base - after only reaching 1st safely. Once they have advanced from initially being on first, there should be no CR for that player - excluding injury of course. I wouldn't mind if we adopted a rule as Crusher noted that the CR must enter before the 1st pitch to the next batter.

Discussion: moving up question

FYI - if you click on the ratings and the age group you want to know, the ratings changes are there. As an example, the top 4 finishers in 50M were bumped to M+

Discussion: Is it fair?

In reality - no, not fair. The hypothetical team you describe would dominate a 50M tournament, but it would be acceptable technically for you guys to do that, and since 55's and 50's are different weekends, you could win two rings!

Here is the potential problem I face. My team will most certainly be bumped to 50M+ after last weekend. I am 55 eligible starting in November. The R/I for 50M+ is 9. 55M+ is 8. SSUSA says they only rate teams not individuals, but if I decided to only play 55's, would I be a 9 or an 8. If I am a 9, then they do rate players and I could only play 55M+ since 55M is a 7. I would assume that if I play both, then I would carry the 9 and I am ok with that. FYI - I have e-mailed SSUSA and asked, but have not gotten a response. I'm sure that will come next week when the WMC is officially over.

Any thought that for M+ only, the 50's should be one group and not split at 55? Then your thought on the same rating would be correct, which I agree with.
