Discussion: Bumped up teams

Dave,
I am not disagreeing with the data. Homers are part of the game. Maybe is was a disadvantage toward the other teams playing in a park that big. Some teams may have tried to flex there muscles . As far as run differential maybe the others team were trying to hard for the homers. I think we avg 20 runs per game. IMO Thatís what it takes to win in AAA 22-28 in Majors. The move iis what it is just think we should be able to finish the season out in AAA. Now if we happen to win Worlds or finish in top 10 pct. My team would go from AAA to Major plus in two months. BTW I have no hard feelings towards anyone at SSUSA. I would of like to have a full season at Majors . Could of made some adjustments to my roster.. (before you bring out data our defense kept the other teams runs low).

I will move on from this point.
Best of Luck to you and your Staff!
See you in Las Vegas!

No we got bumped from 50 AAA to Major. Totally disagree with the bump. They said tournament Directors watched us play. Not one time did a tournament director watch a game. My email said ď Recommendations from key Evaluators and several Managers. Listening to several managers is what I have a problem with.. Played 10 total games and got bumped . One was a 6 Team Tournament in Va Beach. The other was a rained shortened Eastern National.

Discussion: Should a team get to compete?

I would have no problem if Ssusa said you can finish the year in AAA. Next year your bumped to Major. Make it a rule if you win Eastern/Western Championship
Itís automatic Bump. To do this before Vegas is ridiculous. We have a possibility from going AAA to Major Plus in two months.. Maybe avoiding Vegas May be the answer at least we can get a extra year in MajorÖ. Not just one Tournament. Again Major Plus is a death sentenceÖ 99 pct of the teams fold after winning Majors or go to a different sanction.

Should of just dodge the eastern nationals..Playing in the Eastern Nationals hurt us to compete for a World Championship. Lesson Learned for everyone if you have a good weekend in the Eastern Nationals expect to get bumped.

Discussion: Should a team get to compete?

We got bumped to Major Also. Played 10 total games In ssusa in 2021. The teams we played scored runs against everyone else but my team. We pride ourselves of defense we avg 20 runs a game which you need in AAA to win. If the other team donít hit against my team itís not my fault . They said my run differential was too high. Well I canít swing the bat for the other teams.
10 games in ssusa played a total of 6 different teams

3x against the same
2x
2x
1x

1x
They listen to other Managers to make a decision . Thatís what my email says.

I have one question if we win Majors to we get bumped to Major Plus. IMO Major Plus is a death sentence. We donít have the money to compete with the other teams. Especially when they are paying players.
