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.

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!

Discussion: 50 Major Plus Top 3

Don't know if you are just giving Tim the "business", but I think for a 55 Major-plus team to drop down and finish 2nd in the 50 Major division while playing 14 games a week after playing in the 55 tournament is a tremendous accomplishment! Don't know if they used anyone under 55? Actually 55 Major-plus and 50 Major have the same rating index.

Discussion: discissions

If all your wins a coming against AAA and AA teams (don't know why you would be playing against AA teams), then you should be playing major. If you are losing by 10-15 runs to major teams (find that hard to believe with the 5 run inning limit), then appeal the right way as the staff and others have said.

Isn't a 5 man infield (along with a 4 man outfield) the norm after reaching 70?

Discussion: Pool games....???

I would like to see the pool games meaning something more than just practice. As JT25 mentioned, giving the higher seeded team home team would accomplish that.

Discussion: Best ball in Hot Weather

Response is I agree with you. Played in Lacey WA. this weekend in 85 degree heat which is very unusual this time of year up here. Mush ball tourney with the exception of the night games on Saturday. Rock probably too hot...Baden Fire a good compromise. The stote is a good ball in the cool weather which is the case most of the time for us.
