Discussion: Can a player run for another one twice in one inning?

I believe you can CR for different players during a game, done that, but canít run for the same person so I would think it wouldnít be allowed.

Discussion: Umpire Question

Just asking if the fielder put themselves in a bad position of going over the bag but it has nothing to do with the call. Collisions occasionally occur at first, spit happens, but this is not football where you can knock the ball loose from the player.

Discussion: Umpire Question

Did the first baseman step across the bag? As soon as First touched the bag it should have been called an out. The runner and fielder colliding should have no bearing on whether the runner is out or safe.

It did poor that night before bracket play. That complex has really nice fields.

Discussion: major plus

Some teams were strong in 50 Major but moving to 50 Major + they werenít the big dogs anymore and werenít happy about that. I played on a 50 Major team and I have no issue playing the Plus teams, I would welcome it. The team I played with this year I think won one game in 4-5 SSUSA/ISSA tournaments and that was against Suncoast 50 in Richmond. Iíd have to think that was due to getting 5 runs.
I donít know what the solution is but some teams go to tournaments to have a good time and others go to win.

Discussion: Bumped up teams

I have no issue with bumping teams but it should be after the season. If a team is legit at the beginning of the season they shouldnít be punished for playing well. If they beat up on everyone in their legit age class then it is what it is.
Bill, did Freehold get bumped from Major 50 to Plus?

Discussion: major plus

In my short time in senior ball at 50 Major the Major Plus problems exist there also. Most tournaments Iíve seen there are only 2-3 Plus teams to play pool games with the 50 Major teams and then they play their own mini bracket. This past weekend in Richmond the games between the 50 Major and Major Plus teams were all pretty close.

Discussion: Batting Order Advice

First, are you playing for fun or playing to win? If itís just for fun how you set your lineup doesnít matter but if your playing to win I would mix up your hitters so your lineup is not top heavy. In senior ball the key is to score 5 every inning, the way your set up youíre going to have a run drop off for one or possibly two innings batting 14. Mix it up so you have decent bats all through your order.

Discussion: New Jersey 50s AAA Team looking for players for Tournaments.

In NJ and interested in finding a new team. Rated this year as 50 Major but the team I was on earlier this year left a bad taste in my mouth and Iíll likely look for a team next year.

Going to Richmond?

Discussion: How to call a tag play when view is obstructed

I think you make the call as you feel it happened. Donít waver from that and if youíre part of a two man crew and the defense challenges it then discuss it with the other ump.

Discussion: Courtesy runner established

Itís just so Bush league by the catcher and should have never been an out. The umpire was notified who the CR would be so that should have been the end of it. For years playing softball the CR was the last batted out but this being senior ball it has to be made complicated. That said, the day I need a CR is the day I put my equipment out at the curb for garbage pickup.

Discussion: playing on two different teams in same age group but different division

Likely because the 50ís team was a first year team and the 55 guys were friends from a team that moved up from 50 major. If the games didnít occur the same time those guys could play both .

UhÖ..never said they were, just that they were playing for two teams in the same tournament.

I do know a guy that played 50 major and 55 major plus in the same tournament. A bunch of the 55 guys were also on the 50ís team.

Discussion: Dont blame SSUSA for the ball problem.

Thanks Dave. Iíve been in contact with Buggs on another board about Evil BP balls and theyíre also very difficult to get so after many months I had to go to another brand. The import/customs lag looks bad for all them but out of their hands.

Discussion: Dont blame SSUSA for the ball problem.

Is the SSUSA deal with BSN so restrictive that SSUSA canít source balls from another supplier even though BSN canít fulfill their contract? I also thought Buggs owned the ďmicrocellĒ technology?

Discussion: Umpires Making the Right (or Wrong) Call

He should stick to his original call or discuss the play with a second umpire if there was one. An umpire should hear the managers complaint nothing more.
