Jon 44 - You are correct - the city's of Las Vegas, North Las Vegas and Clark County P&R should be ashamed of these fields and their condition considering how much revenue is brought into this area - in large part thanks to the efforts of SSUSA...

However - curveball is absolutely correct - IF that other organization were still involved, the fields at Cheyenne would have been in much better condition and more playable than this year.

Curveball - Imagine the fun 50AAA had going from running on the sandy beaches at Cheyenne (horrible fields) to the artificial turf at BLD - back to the sandy beaches Saturday, then on Sunday to the cement infields at Russell! Fun Times!

Dbax - Cheyenne refurbished? Talk about LOL.... there's a reason SSUSA had to move night games from there to BLD.... last time I drove by there - last week - the outfield looked like our other favorite field - Shadow Rock....

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.

Discussion: Spring Worlds 50/55 M/M+ & 60 M Score updates

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.
