Discussion: flip flop and one up in league play

A 1 and 1 count will speed up your league play without having to worry about the confusing flip flop.

Discussion: Half Run Rule

There were 24 teams in that Lacey tournament with 15 different age/classification groups. This was just a pre-season event getting some games in but there are just too many different playing groups (and rules) overall.

Discussion: Do we pay to play by the hour??

A 1 and 1 count would shave about 8-10 minutes off of standing around watching batter's take 3-4 pitches and allow us to get that last inning in most of the time.

Discussion: Doeflinger Major Really?

The TOC was a 2015 event regardless that it's played 2 1/2 months later than it should be but that's the only reason they were still rated Major. If they would have participated in the Winter Nationals last November, they would have been Major+. Yes, the two tournaments should be flipped but it's not going to change anytime soon.

The 11th defender would help some too. Not preventing balls up the middle, just not as many going that way.

Discussion: What is your favorite complex you've ever played at?

Steinbrenner, Wallace-Marine Park? Have they improved the fields? Not questioning your opinion, just want to know. Haven't played there in quite some time.

Any BLD. Only played in two, Vegas and Manteca. Makes you feel like a kid again! Agree with ffdonnie that the BLD complexes are getting a bit worn.

Golden Eagle is great too!

Discussion: Question?

I believe the Poollshark is correct. Drops a level but the same rating index.

Discussion: MAJOR PLUS PLAYERS NEEDED

The trouble with allowing Major+ teams to have 2 out of area players are the one's that have the resources and can afford it. Many Major+ teams don't have the funds to do this.

Johnny, will your team travel north this season into Washington?

Discussion: New Rules

DoubleL10, would have rather seen the lower class team have to play by the upper class teams HR rule. At least it's something where it was a huge advantage for the lower teams with the gift runs, HR rule AND a coin toss.

Should be an option for the upper class team though.

Discussion: For 70 and over. 11 players on the field. Like or Dislike

I'd like to see 11 defenders in all the age groups (50 & up). Helps protect the pitcher and moves the game along. Maybe we can get 7 innings in for a change.

Discussion: New Toruney Schedule

They usually get the majority of the "bigger" tournament dates out after the convention so I'm sure we will be seeing something soon.

Discussion: SCREENS IN TOURNAMENTS

neck 10, no, the extra fielder does not PREVENT the pitcher from getting hit. The extra fielder may make the batter think about going a different way, that's all I'm saying. Not very complicated...less hits up the middle, less chance of the pitcher getting hit.

Discussion: SCREENS IN TOURNAMENTS

curveball, how does a fielder standing up the middle not deter batters from going up the middle? Don't you try to hit the ball where the defenders are not standing?

I don't quite understand your idea that SSUSA should implement the 11th fielder for the younger groups, where it's being used now? It's not being used now, that was my point.

Discussion: SCREENS IN TOURNAMENTS

How about an 11th defensive player up the middle (or wherever)to help out the pitcher? It's already done in the 70+. The games would move a bit quicker and possibly allow us to play 7 innings.

Discussion: 2016 dates for World Masters Championship?

Fall break? You must start school much earlier than us?

The 50 & 55 age groups have been playing on separate weekends the last few years, which is good.

Discussion: 40's USA Championship Game Auto Seeds 1 and 2 Regardless

The reason for it is to get teams to attend the Eastern and Western Nationals. Seeds don't matter that much to me either. We won Rock n Reno one year after going 0-3 in pool play (pool play was 3 games a number of years ago).

I would like to see the seeding games mean more than just practice by having higher seeded teams earn home team advantage in bracket games. Home team is so important with every game close because of the 5 runs (7) per inning. This huge advantage is determined by a flip of a coin? Doesn't seem right.

Discussion: Winter World`s

The Trump-Stote 44/375 is a fair ball in the cool weather. Obviously, it's hot most of the time and when it is, the game is a mush ball event which is not fun.

As Mango states "it's only a matter of time" so if we all realize this, why are we doing nothing? Something needs to be done to reduce the odds of this happening.

Is the Baden Fire the answer to the "best of both worlds" regarding a fair/safer ball? Possibly adding a few more HR's to the limits and/or allowing an 11th defender at the younger levels, like the 70's have to protect the pitcher a bit more.

Let's not experience what Omar has mentioned as a possibility in the future!
