Discussion: Batting out of order

8.5(4) COURTESY RUNNER COMING TO BAT WHILE ON BASE
A courtesy runner on base when it is his turn to bat will be declared out. The
runner will be removed from the base and a second courtesy runner cannot be
substituted.

Think that sums it up

Discussion: What to swing in a cold weather tourney?

Hey MCK I could see using the OG as there probably one of the most durable senior bats ever made. Good idea keeping the balls indoors till it's time to roll.

BKB most of the fields I play on do not have the mounted heaters in the bathroom, but great idea!

Crusher...best line of the day! LMAO. Hey bro, lemme borrow your bat today, I'm just not feeling it with my bat! lol

DD Sounds like you have the connections to the fields control center. I know it gets cold in ST G but sounds like you've done it before and it works for you.

Ya I'm looking at low 50s this weekend, thinking bats will be on the verge of cracking pretty easy, so just wanted some thoughts on the issue. thanks fellas.

Discussion: What to swing in a cold weather tourney?

MSW I totally agree with ya on the balls and there's not much we can do about that!

DD That is an interesting concept using the water? are you pulling my leg? or have you done this before? lol

Time blue, I have to go to the bathroom really bad...as I grab my bat and run! DD you know I'm jk around. But I could see the bat getting warmed up all over the barrel using warm water. Never thought of that.

Discussion: What to swing in a cold weather tourney?

Just curious as what you guys swing in cold weather tourneys as I have one coming up this weekend? Early morning games might be in the high 40s, by noon probably low 60s. I'm guessing 80 percent of the people will be swinging there gamers. I have like a Ultra 2 I'm willing to sacrifice or an older Melee. just wondering what most of you do?

Do you guys have any tricks you use if you do swing your gamers like heating up your bat prior to going to bat? maybe wrapping it up in a blanket or something lol. I understand that the balls are going to be ice cold I get that, but if your willing to possibly crack your bat is there something you would try to do to mitigate the damage? I'm just curious your guys thoughts on this?

Discussion: Borrowing players?

Hey Dave, some clarification please, my original team (A) had been reluctant to play due to C-19 and travel outside of Cali, so I hooked up with a team (B) same age and division which was my first tourney of the year. Now my original team (A) decides it is willing to travel to Yuma in Feb and I would like to go back to my original team (A) to finish the season.

I won the Bullhead tourney with team (B) but I do not plan on playing with team (B) for the remainder of the season, just played with them to get in some playing time. Can I just show up with my original team (A) and play in Yuma without doing anything?

I found the new temporary rule in Volume 6 Edition 8 of the newsletter it says...

Under the temporary move, managers would be able to pick
up players in the same age and skill level for a single
tournament without the player having to obtain a release
from his original team.

Because this is my first tourney of the year, team (B) I'm assuming is now my original team to start the season but team (A) is really my original team. Kinda confusing but I think you get the jest

My only question is do I need to reach out to SSUSA in any way in regards to the situation above? or can I just show up in Yuima and play? thanks for any feedback on this.

Discussion: Team forfeiting their seeding games

I gotta believe that team is going 0-2 losing both games by forfeit 7-0/7-0 so that's a minus -14 runs, maybe you have a point that it's possible other teams could have a bigger minus after two games? Hum lol.

Maybe just the fact their not showing up put's them in the bottom of the bracket and that goes without saying? I think most people would agree with SSUSA decision as it's only fair that teams that showed up and played should be a higher seed. JMO.

Discussion: field assignments

As Dave says we have to be extremely grateful the the state of Utah is letting us play with whats going on in other states right now. If you want to see 3 of the fields being used in the worlds right now including Little valley fields check out *Senior Softball Addict* on you tube, he has Gubler and Canyons softball complex also.

They are short vids but very well taken, and you can clearly see the houses at the Valley fields are stupid close and according to *Senior Softball Addict* the fields were there first prior to the houses being built,just FYI. But we all need to be thankful were getting to play and I personally cant wait to get out there!

And I have to second the motion that the 55 AAA teams in my opinion are going to pepper that one house that is right behind the left field fence as Jon44 has stated, I pray we don't hit it, but I think it's inevitable. We don't want to burn any bridges with St George! Good luck all in the worlds!

Discussion: Runner on 2nd helping batter with inside/outside pitches.

I think we've all played against...that guy behind the plate in our years of playing, the one that say's something right when your about to swing! it always screwed me up lol, but the batter may be looking for that outside pitch to go oppo or inside pitch to pull, but my teammate on second base is yelling something....wait what?...strike 3...looking! haha

It might be strange having someone yelling from the field of play JMO.

Discussion: Vegas World still going to require a one time tourney prior to worlds?

In my case Dave you hit the nail on the head with your quote as I work for a rocket company and the big wigs tell us...Don't worry about other people worry about yourself! so in my case...it is rocket science lol.

SSUSA Staff I'm amazed that you guys check that many rosters as I'm sure that's very time consuming and sure some player ratings may get missed, but just play ball and have fun!

We should all be thankful we seniors have this organization to do what we love to do! Even if we don't play ball this year take my fee with no reservations and help out the staff! I'm sure will all be ballin soon!

Discussion: Vegas World still going to require a one time tourney prior to worlds?

Lol Dave...GOOD ONE!

I don't think most of the teams going to Vegas Worlds purposely did not play in any qualifiers to sand bag. If your like me in Cali it's been completely shut down and were dying to play. Unless you won some major tourneys
last year or added some new players I'm guessing most teams can stay in there same division?

Does SSUSA look at all 600 plus teams rosters prior to Worlds? if so they definitely earn there money and that could possibly weed out any stacked teams.

Benji...Make it happen! lol

Discussion: Vegas World still going to require a one time tourney prior to worlds?

Yo Sal, well said! I'm guessing that a lot of teams are Jonesing to play, and God only knows that SSUSA could use the business right now. Probably most of us want to play but...there are those who will chose not to go because of the pandemic and we all support there decision.

My guess is they could draw close to the 600 teams that comprise this tourney yearly, and we know in the past has drawn well over that. If we practice the new norms we could all be safe to a certain extent, but keep in mind you can catch it anywhere even if you stayed home. I personally hope Vegas lets us play!

SSUSA Staff,

Thanks for responding and will wait patiently for your response. I just hadn't seen this issue in any prior post so sorry if the question had already been asked.

Discussion: Vegas World still going to require a one time tourney prior to worlds?

Just curious if we still have to play a qualifier prior to playing in the Worlds? We have signed up to play tourneys all season and all of them have been cancelled as our state has been completely shut down due to C-19. If Vegas allows us to play the Masters tourney it would probably be our first and only one of the season. Any insight on this would be much appreciated.

Discussion: Net for Pitchers

How about we just require pitchers wear masks, shin guards and chest protectors? I'm thinking it would be a logistic nightmare for SSUSA to purchase and drag these nets all around, especially to parks that do not have nets available considering how many different tourneys they put on. just a thought, I'm ok either way

Discussion: Interference

I'm not sure what the rule is the way it's written? here what's written, I skipped A through D here's all E says...

8.3 BATTER-RUNNER IS OUT

E. When he interferes with a fielder attempting to field a batted ball or
intentionally interferes with a fielder attempting to throw the ball.

We know the runner is out for interference and dead ball, but it says BATTER-RUNNER? IMO the batter leads off the next inning as he did not make an out (it went foul) the runner did. I could be wrong?
