Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Ruling clarification

Wow, senior softball has some pretty dumb rules, but this is the dumbest I have ever heard of. I agree out of the box is an out, but to count it as a home run with no run scored?
It's an illegally struck ball, dead ball! This sounds like a rule made up by someone who has never hit one out, and never will.

SSUSA, you guys just live for controversy and heated arguments, don't you? I can see this one being very loud and very long on the field. Really, really dumb.

Discussion: Why are there rules?

Hitem,
I stand by my (probably)inappropriate, (possibly beer infused) post. However I feel for you. You guys have a problem down there. But the only way it will be taken care of is by formal complaint, according to DD. If that's been done, and it's still not being resolved, then this is where the naming of names needs to take place. In this public forum.
SSUSA is not very forthcoming with information when there is trouble in paradise. IMO it's another black eye for their business.
I want to know for sure who that TD is so I don't play in his tourneys. We can't band together to make a change if people are just going to throw out vague rumors.

C'mon deep, if you are going to call someone out on here then grow some stones and name names. Tired of this chicken shit whining and crying. You don't even have your name on here so what are you worried about? If it's this same guy we've heard about before, then let us know.

Discussion: International Tie Breaker

Umm staff, I'm going to defend the TD here. He was following the rule as written (yes too vague) as we had asked him to. Which, in my opinion, is what the TD should be doing. If he is out there making assumptions of what people were thinking or planning (or not planning)then he's asking for trouble.

No, I do not believe that they were trying to get a rabbit in there. But a rule is a rule and the TD followed it as written. Hey, there are some wily old seniors out there, you never know. I had something similar happen to a team I played for when I played 40's and we were learning senior rules.

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

They all have + and -.

1. Canyons Complex St. George (don't slide)
2. Golden Eagle (when wind below 25mhp)
3. BLD (would be higher if outfield wasn't torn up)

Haha ok, you must be right. It's all me, I guess I am the only one who missed it. God has spoken, I am done. You do whatever you want any way. Sorry to waste everyone's time.

Discussion: 1 and 1 pitch count

Well staff, as Omar put it, facts are facts. I have had the same valid email since I've been playing, starting in the 40's. I have no explanation for the missed emails, sorry. And I'm not making this shit up. Maybe it's one of the reasons the return % of the survey was low?
But since Pitcher22 asked: Yes for 1-1 count.

Discussion: 1 and 1 pitch count

Here we go again, Staff referencing the infamous survey that DID NOT go out to everyone. Staff may have sent it to everyone but not many got it. At least not many in N. Calif. I had asked several TEAMS (not people) at a NCSSA tourney a little while after it was supposed to have gone out, and two PEOPLE got it. To me, this survey is not valid. Would it have changed anything had it worked? I doubt it.

Discussion: Huntsman World Senior Games

This year will be my 4th consecutive year. I've had a lot of fun each year, but I've noticed a slow decline in participation. Reasons I've heard is as BruceAZ stated above. And also it's too close to the Worlds for a lot of people.
Good luck with any positive changes you make and thank you.

Last I heard (read) was not till July at the earliest. I used this bat in Vegas last year and loved it. The one I used held together, but saw several shark-toothed (verb?)
