Discussion: 11 Players For 65 Brackets

I didn't realize a hit between the third baseman and the shortstop counted more than one between the shortstop and pitcher.

Discussion: CHANGE IN POLICY FOR PLAYERS COMPETING IN TWO AGE GROUPS

In the Midwest (Wisconsin) we do not have the player pool other areas do.
We have a need for players to play in multiple age groups in order to fill teams occasionally. This ruling allows us to do that without sacrificing our rating in the higher age group.
Thank you SSUSA!

Discussion: 11 Players For 65 Brackets

I would understand the need for the 11th fielder if teams were scoring their 5 runs in the majority of innings. However, in my experience playing 65 major the last 5 years that has not been the case. All this has done from what I have seen is lowered the number of hits/runs scored.

Discussion: starting with less than 11

Thank you B.J.
Just for the sake of completeness 65's now play with 11.
But you did answer my question.

In 65 and above.
Team only has 10 players to start game with 11th on the way.
Can the 11th player enter as the 11th hitter...
At any time in the game?
Not at all?
Not after the team has gone through the order once?
Thanks.

Is the appeal process over for the year or just on hiatus until the office reopens next week?

Discussion: commitment line

Runner from second rounds third on hit and crosses commitment line. He sees the throw and decides to go back to third. Duh. Pitcher cuts the throw and not realizing the runner had crossed throws to third. Overthrow. The runner now scores. Is he safe? Or is the runner out as soon as he re-crosses?

Just out of curiosity, why (by rule) is the mat considered to be in fair territory?

Discussion: Ratings

According to the index 60 Maj and 65 Maj+ have the same number.
Does this mean there is no limit to the number of 65 Maj+ players eligible to play on the 60 Maj team?

Isn't this why there is an infield fly rule?

Discussion: Intentionally dropped ball

I apologize for my ignorance, but what am I missing? With a man on first only (or first and third) and a pop up in the infield can't you let it drop because there is no double play if the batter runs?

Discussion: missing first base

Ball hit to infielder. Runner obviously beats throw by passing base but misses first base. Does ump call out? Or is this an appeal play?

Thank you Ho. I did not extend my search that far away. Tried to keep the drive under 6 hours. Also, those are not listed yet on the website.

Discussion: Tourneys in the midwest

I understand the Midwest does not have the number of teams the rest of the country has and therefore will not have as many tournaments available. In the months of June and July there are 6 tourneys scattered between Minn, Wi, Ill, Mich, and Ind. I do not believe there is a great conspiracy here, but couldn't there be a little better coordination here? In the past, many of the same teams have gone to both Rochester and the Windy City tourneys, with a few going to the ISA in Columbus. They are now on the same weekend. The ISA will probably not be greatly affected, but one of the other two will have their numbers greatly reduced. Don't the tournament directors see this? The 6-10 teams from Wisconsin, and the 3-6 teams from Minnesota that have historically gone to both will now have to choose between the two. Are these really the only weekends available? We all want more teams to compete against. This certainly doesn't help.
