Discussion: All you rule experts: Need your input..

Sorry Hat Man both you and I were wrong. SSUSA Staff and TimMcElroy were dead on. I love this site because you get immediate and expert opinions that reflect years of experience of playing and umpiring games. I just completed a survey from SPA and one question was how would I improve the SPA website. My answer was to create a message board similar to SSUSA`s. I check this message board everyday to keep up to date on the latest topics.

ASA rules in senior softball league.. Bases loaded..outs unimportant..Batter hits a screamer down the third base line. Hits the runner while on the base in fair territory. Ball bounces away... My view is that it is a fair ball and the ball is in play. Umpire immediately called dead ball. Runner from third scores and the batter is awarded first base. all runners advance. The defensive third baseman was deep on the grass. What say you experts? The umpire making the call is a head umpire and very seasoned.

Fred S. I understand your concerns and have sympathy for your situation, but there is hope on the horizon if you can just hang on a little longer. I`m not being sarcastic, there will be more 75`s moving up and those older 80`s should have more options in the future. I still want to play the game as long as I feel I can be competitive. Best of luck Fred.

SSUSA Staff... You got that completely right. Not to rehash my major concern but to have the two major organizations not in sync was a real headache for the players and teams alike. Now I can play SPA east and go to Vegas and T.O.C. Great move. Thank you

Taits,,,You were rambling. All the stuff you mentioned about 60 teams and 65 teams really doesn`t make a lot of sense in that there are many many teams in those above mentioned categories. In the 80 division East of the Mississippi there are only 4 80 teams that are within 7 or 8 hour drives from where I live. The older teams that you mention as being weaker have the option to get younger players and the older players can in this case move up to the 85 age group. I see it as a win win situation. Also, by adding the younger players, you improve the overall play for that division.

Hi Mike.. Chuck here...Yes this has had a very positive effect for me in that I can now play on an 80 team as well as my old 75 team. I`ll be playing with a team out of Michigan and I feel I can help that 80 team. If SSUSA had not changed their ruling on this, I would not be able to go to Vegas or TOC in Florida. At our age, this give us more opportunities to play the game we love. tomorrow is not guaranteed. I enjoyed playing with you guys and hope you continue to play at a very high level.

Discussion: Just an old guy wondering

Does this organization still require an individual wanting to play on an 80 team to be 80 years old that year to play 80? SPA allows a 78 year old to play 80 and it seems unfortunate to me that at 78, I will have to wait two years to play on a team registered with SSUSA. How many more healthy years do I have left? It`s not like a 65 team that has relatively unlimited number of players to choose from. Is this organization considering a change in that age requirement?

I play ASA in McAllen, Texas and they allow stealing. In the situation just stated, the ball is alive and the runner on third can score.

Topic: Bats
Discussion: bat rolling

I accept Cougar`s comments made above. How can you distinguish a rolled bat by sight alone? I use a Reebok Melee and have never had a bat rolled and yet the more hits you have legally with the Melee, the more the outer paint surface has extensive cracks. I have never rolled or shaved a bat and yet as stated, the outer surface is all cracked up. One of my Melee`s even has much of the paint missing and yet it is legal.

Discussion: Winter World Championships Results

A little testy are we and somewhat arrogant? We pay dues and fees and I do not think it too much to expect as an organization to provide as a service to its members, the results of a tournament that ended four months ago. Eventually...No time certain... specifically when? maybe never? I know you can do better. I think it is an obligation that your members expect.

Fine, that`s specific for one age group. What about the rest? I play 75 and have friends in the 60 bracket. Don`t mean to be a pest, but is that too much to ask?

They have not as yet commented on the post I made maybe in December as to the results of the Ft. Myers Tourney. SSUSA Staff,,, guys want to know how their friends make out in those fall tourneys. What seems to be the problem?

Discussion: illegally batted ball

We had a left hand batter with great speed often take a half or three quarter swing and hit the ball DOWN THE THIRD BASELINE and beat it out if there were no runners on base. In all of the ten or twelve years he played , he was only called out one time for the chop or bunt rule. It was a half swing not really a chop or bunt. Opposing teams never appealed the play.
