Discussion: 4 DAYS NOW FOR VEGAS MASTERS?

Four days in Vegas is a bad thing? Plan your vacation! 50,55,60+ can't get a couple of days off?

Discussion: 11 on defense

I think it does decrease the middle shots some. With the 5 man infield the outfield gaps are wide open and a lot of balls go up the middle when trying to hit those gaps and miss hit it. With an 11 man defense, who knows where people would hit?

I have been for the 11 man defense for a long time. Maybe people would stay out of the middle a bit?

Discussion: Hip Replacement

Do some research on HIP RESURFACING. It's a different type of procedure that allows people our age to be able to continue to play sports like softball, basketball, soccer, etc. Had one done in 2009 and the other in 2014. Not surprised that a hip replacement surgeon would say not to play softball any longer.

Discussion: Get rid of the 1-1 count

After the second tournament of the season, we have played 7 innings in 9 out of the 10 games. The one we didn't, there was an injury and the umpire may not have stopped the clock but whatever ... that's 90%. Last season we had a 36% 7 inning rate. Pretty simple.

Discussion: 1-1 count and new ball

First tournament, five games played, five games went 7 innings! Used the old Trump ball, apparently the new ones still haven't arrived.

Discussion: Today's "super" bats

These bats are not going to go away but the real need is doing something about the growing number of cheaters out there. It's like MLB ignoring the problem for a long time with steroids. SSUSA is ignoring this problem ... start testing!

Discussion: Spot the Major + player

Swing, all good points IMO but what really makes it difficult for good Major teams to compete with Major+ teams is the 2 players outside the borders that are allowed in the Major+ division. To be able to bring these type of players in takes money and usually the Major+ teams have more of it ... not always but on average. If this was eliminated, I think more Major teams would be willing to play up.

Discussion: 1 and 1 with courtesy foul new rule for younger guys

The major consideration by SSUSA to get more game action out of the time that's allotted to play. Pretty simple. Most teams would like to play 7 innings rather than 6, there's your percentage!

Discussion: 1 and 1 with courtesy foul new rule for younger guys

Last season, 36% of our games went the full 7 innings. I'm quite sure our percentage will go up from that this year with the 1-1 count. Dave stated in the first tournament, EVERY game went 7 innings. I'm not a math wiz but I believe that is 100%!

Well said, chico senior (and Dave, of course!) I'm sure some will continue to argue the issue!

Discussion: Drum Roll...the Starting Count decision results.

Hey txnighttrain, we played 7 games at World's (50+ Major) and none (zero) of them went 7 innings so your point is? I think we'll get to play 7 inning games this year! Maximize the innings in the allotted time we are given to play.

OZ40, How is this for reliable stats? We played 52 games last year and a total 19 of them went into the 7th inning. I could go back and check other years but why bother? More game action in the allotted time we are given to play ... that's what we are getting, it's that simple!

And in other words...just trying to get more game action in the amount of time we're given to play. The 1-1 count will do this!

NYGNYY, It looks like I may be the same age as you and played with the 1 and 1 count since 1982 (until senior ball) so I guess I am one who DID grow up with it. For the umpteenth time, we are not looking to get the game over with quicker, rather to get more game action in the allotted time we have.

Basically, as the staff is presuming, the groups that played mostly USSSA back in the day favor 1-1 and the groups that played mostly ASA favor 0-0.
