Discussion: WINTER WORLD'S 65/70-Platinum Update

This is a very entertaining thread. I can't even imagine the comments if the 70 year old team had beat the younger guys. Bottom-line - No matter what ingredients go into the stew not everyone is going to enjoy it. If you think SSUSA purposely tilts the scales to favor one team or another then you have the option of not competing either against that team or in that organization. I have played in SSUSA events since 2002 and found their process and procedures, reasonable and professional.

Discussion: Hip replacement

SSUSA is not a medical group nor do they perform diagnosis. They do evaluate has a medical professional submitted a note that the applicant has participated in a major surgery affecting their overall health. I have used this procedure in the past, total hip and total knee replacement, 9 years apart. Did my quality of life improve in each instance, absolutely? Am I the same player I was when 100% healthy, no, some would argue better because I had to learn how to hit. Rather than "dog" the process, ask the Doctor's office for a description of the procedure performed and submit to SSUSA as one of the reasons the player should be considered for reclassification. I have always found STAFF to be fair, professional, and responsive to valid requests!

Discussion: Idea for next years worlds in Vegas (or any other large tourney)

To the best of my knowledge teams usually do not play teams from the same geographic area in pool play. Results dictate seeding and any effort to change that opens the door to favoritism. The way it is done now is fair and what more can you ask.

Discussion: Passing of Joe Brown

Joe took personal pride in making sure your bat was wiped down and placed in its proper place in the dugout. He did not want you to have to think about anything but hitting. He did more on one leg than I do on two.

Discussion: World Masters Playing at Sunset Park Softball Complex

I believe that SSUSA does its very level best to rotate where divisions play. Therefore, if you changed age groups or classifications, you could play at the same park in consecutive years, but not normally.

Timberworks is a great team and should be applauded for putting together such a competitive group of guys.

If they play down, use Major rules and still give runs then the advantage should be with the Major team. I have been on both sides of this equation and IMO the advantage is always with the lower division team unless the lower division team is truly a AAA team that has been bumped to Major.

Timberworks has had a revamping of their roster, losing some incredible players through age up and injury. This will be their most challenging season physically, mentally, and spiritually.

Discussion: Bullhead Tournament

The Bullhead tournament was not only NOT RAINED OUT, but the Bullhead Parks and Rec Department was out at 4AM on Wed getting the fields in playing shape after rain all day and most of the night Tuesday.

The management of this tourney outside the lines was outstanding and the umpiring on the field was excellent. Donnie did a good job communicating and putting together a good crew. Good vendor representation so if you have any $$ left from the casinos there was good stuff to buy. I encourage team participation next year.

Discussion: Winter Worlds

Not speaking for SSUSA, if your team was playing in WW then most certainly your team would be rated M+. If you are playing with a different team then it would depend on your age. If you aged up then possibly you could still play major. If you played for a younger age group then you could play as major. You could play major if said team did not have 2 other M+ players, in most instances it takes 3 to get bumped depending. If your name was somehow missed on the submitted roster then at some point your new team would be made aware of your new designation and then then chips just starting falling. Either way congrats on winning Majors, now easy to do at any age group.

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Runner hit by batted ball

When my team forces me to play 1st or 3rd, I mean lets me play 1st or 3rd. I always ask the runner if the batter likes him or if the runner owes the batter money. That usually determines that likelihood that I am going to be trying to get out of the way of a batted ball. What was the question.
