Discussion: Hows the new ball performing at worlds Dave?

A $400 bat and a .50 core ball won't help a $2 swing. IMO ;-)

Discussion: Worlds 70 Major Bracket Logic?

First of all, I believe the SSUSA puts forth their best effort at serving their membership/players as a whole. There ill always be disagreements on rankings, restrictions, and rewards. Every 4 or 5 years there is a dominant team/manager in an age group or division. Doug has done an excellent job of obtaining and maintaining his roster. These athletes have done well when playing together, not always the case when a roster of excellent players are put together.

If it wasn't one thing it would be something else when it comes to rankings and teams. Teams outside CA, NV. and AZ fly under the radar. They can play in other associations and maybe they are stronger than their assigned ranking.

CA, NV. and AZ can create stronger rosters because of the amount of players in their area of draw. I can go on, but it is too long of a read.

I do believe because of the ability of M+ teams to draw from a larger Area, East or West of the Big Muddy, they should give 7 runs not 5. 5 run differential is common among division mixing, but does not account for roster creation differences. 14 M+ players verses a roster of 11M and 3M+ at best. IMO

I look forward to seeing old and I mean old friends in Vegas, be safe and God Bless.

Discussion: Teams on FIRE WOW!!

SSUSA conducts an extensive process on moving teams up and down. More power to the team that gets hot at the right time. On the other side of the coin peaking too early is not beneficial to teams in general. It is not how you start it is how you finish.

Cheaters that are cheaters are cheaters at any age. It happens. Just motion them to first, pisses them off more than others.

Discussion: Vegas Worlds

you do well in a 75 team tourney then you have to expect to be bumped. I get it, certain players have career tourneys and team enjoys the fruits of their labor. I doubt very seriously if any of those players that played above their weight class regrets how well they played. You are 50, plenty of game left.

Discussion: Medical exemption

Believe it or not I kind of disagree with Dave. Being immobile and then being semi mobile is not the same as being mobile. From the guy with hip and knee replacement. That being said the replacements today are much better than before so there is that. I think and could be wrong the medical reclassification is 120 days from approval as opposed to submission. If you submit today, best case scenario you are probably looking at 1/1/23 for an effective date if approved.

Discussion: 2023 Scorpions 70 Major

I have been asked to manage the Scorpions 70 team for the upcoming 2023 season. We are building a Major team, hopefully a very good major team. Our intent is to carry 14 active players and one extra as available or on an as needed basis. We continue to talk to players as names are brought to us, but existing Scorpions have priority over players outside the Scorpion Family. We are keeping our M+ players to a max of 3. There is ALWAYS a possibility of being moved up based on performance, but it will be earned on the field not because of an administration decision.

Tom Petrizzio, our sponsor and Scorpions 65 player, is building an Arizona based SOFTBALL CLUB to include teams at the 60, 65, and 70 level. The intent to be a family-oriented group of good ball players and better friends.

My email address is softball4b@aol.com, if you have questions.

I am willing to pay for: clean restrooms, inside seating area, AC, covered seating, actual seats, large dugouts, and the sound of my HR balls hitting the backdrop.

IMO If there is rule change to allow 69 year olds on a 70 team I suggest this be for AA only.
