Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Why are there rules?

Seriously, you think either of those programs apply. Is the individual desiring to remain silent in fear of retribution, loss of job, or personal injury? Even those programs have guidelines in place regarding the reporting of an incident. What those programs do not allow is allegations without specifics. If it Rick then call him out.

I do not have first hand knowledge of the events that occurred at the tournament in question.

For me personally, I would have handled it differently.

First, I would have lodged a formal written complaint with the director of the tournament.

Second, I would have lodged a formal written complaint with the authority responsible for sanctioning said tournament. I would have referenced the potential liability for failure to enforce rules that are in place for uniformity and safety.

If in those instances, if I did not receive a response I was comfortable with, I would have then:

Not play in a tournament with the same director, not play in a tournament sanctioned by that governing body or pursue a more legal approach.

Just for the record, I do not think any 30 or 40 year old should be swinging senior bats. I certainly do not think underage players should be playing on in an older age group. 30>40>50>60. There is a reason there is age banding. In premise I agree with Hitemdeep, in practice, presentation is everything.

Discussion: Top Gun tournament

The scores from these games will be posted later this week. I will post a link that you can access.

The tournament this weekend was outstanding, Donnie did a good job. The weather was great, the umpiring was Top Notch and the games themselves were fiercely competitive. A lot of the teams were finalizing rosters in preparation of Worlds which gave the games a different feel this late in the season.

Whether I agree with the premise or not. If I want to be taken seriously, I usually look a person in the eye and talk to them. It means it has significance to me and I am willing to put my reputation on the line as being the author of the statement. But that is just me.

Update on Traffic. Friday night till 11AM Saturday they are closing traffic on the freeway at Ave Pico to one lane. Going to be a nightmare for those with mid morning games.

I am working on having the daily scores posted via a website. I will keep you informed.

FYI - there is a major soccer tournament this weekend in San Clemente/San Juan area and weather is going to be NICE! Traffic will be at a standstill after 10AM and I doubt there will be any places to hit. Don't care, can't wait to play!!!!!!!!!!!

If you are going to call a team out, just do it by name. This tip toeing around is like saying we could have won if coach had not played his favorites.

Discussion: looking for a 50m to becoming a 50MP sponsor or part sponsor in So Cal

Too much discussion in an open forum with no ability to affect change.

Call George and get resolved.

If you referring to my post, I doubt very seriously that any city is going to go the expense and potential liability of temporary fencing.

Can't bring the fences in, most of the fields are city owned and are multi use per planing documents.

Discussion: Awards

Since the merge of LVSSA and SSUSA. The tournament normally hosted by Vegas no longer counts as points toward the HOF. I recommend it be replaced with the tournament that is hosted by LVSSA and SSUSA in the Spring. Boatload of teams and great competition.

Discussion: Re-Rated without playing a tournament

I hear you, but there is a reason it is the top of the mountain. Only a few reach it and fewer still stay there.

I have been there and I am working hard trying to get back there.

We often play teams 5 years younger or up in class. It is a simple function of age (fewer teams) and economics (regional/local tournaments).

Lace em up and let's play.

Discussion: Re-Rated without playing a tournament

East Coast / West Coast Bias. Always has been and always will be. West Coast always think East Coast teams load up and play ISSA and SPA because their roster will not be reviewed by SSUSA. East Coast teams thinks WC teams whine to Sac about their roster.

Truth is SSUSA is never on the right side because everybody for the most part complains about someone else. IMO we all try to build our rosters to complete and win. Regardless of the formula used there will be exceptions to the rule. Maybe this or that team had a great weekend because everyone of their players played out of their mind and or their competition had lost players and were not on the same level as before.

Bottom-line we as players and as teams have the choice to participate or not. From personal experience, first ask if there is a remedy, exercise such and then if you are unhappy with the result, make an informed decision as to your action.

Discussion: Best Batting Glove for Pratice

I want to stress my practice gloves are different from my game gloves only in the fact, I use a new pair for games. BlueHawk Nitrile, only trouble is finding them in extra large.

Nitrile work gloves $5 per pair. Water resistant, I never need grip or pine tar. May not look as cool, but then again cool went out in my 30ies. Now it is about performance and price.
