Discussion: 2023 Schedule

Shooter & Jawood, I answered this a bit hastily. My previous reply was an answer to when the 2023 season begins. To answer this correctly, the first available tournament is the 3rd week of November, which is the Phoenix Worlds, and the schedule for 2023 is traditionally completed some time between November and the end of 2022. Sorry about that.

Probably more accurately, it begins right after all the divisions are completed at the Vegas Worlds. The first big tournament for 2023 is around the 3rd week of November in Phoenix, AZ.

Hi Dave, I think the 60AA scheduling may wrong? Advil Knights playing 4 seeding games. Andy

BTW Rod, you left off an important piece of information about yourself. I know you are a consistent .800 hitter.

Hey Rod, Your post looks just like mine. LOL! Maybe we will both get on the same team for the Vegas Worlds.

Good luck, Andy

Discussion: LOOKING TO PLAY IN THE VEGAS WORLDS IN SEPTEMBER

My name is Andy Smith. I am from California and age 72. Without going into details, I have not been able to hook up with a 65 or 70 team. In addition, I now have work obligations the week of the 65's/70's in September. Therefore, I am looking to hook up with a 60AA team for the Vegas Worlds. I had a couple of injuries the past 2 years, and only played 2 tournaments during the Covid-19 era, but did play many league games weekly. As of today, I am all healed now and ready to play. If at the last minute, your team is in need of a player at the 60AA level only, I would be happy to help out. I am rated as a 70 Major player, which is the same rating as a 60AA player. I can play 1B, Catch, or DH. I used to pitch, but did not during the past 2 years, because of my injuries, so not sure if that is an option now. I do not hit home runs any longer, but can hit the ball far enough, if the OF is playing shallow. When healthy, I usually can hit between .700 and .900. Again, just looking to play 60AA only, in the September Vegas Worlds, if you find yourself short of players. Not interested in playing the rest of the current season, due to these ridiculous gas prices. For now, I am content to play 2-4 games per week locally.

Thank you,

Andy

Discussion: Can a player run for another one twice in one inning?

B.J. You are probably correct. I read the question incorrectly, since he went in as a sub for player C, not a CR. Thank you!

BTW, I do not believe the courtesy runner can bat for player C in the same inning that he ran for player A.

Garyhitter59 is 100% correct! A courtesy runner may be used for a base runner at any time, but the same courtesy runner may not be used more than once per inning. Rule 8.5(1).

Dbax, The only 65 major scores that I can see right now are the seeding games. They did have most of the bracket scores up, but now all the bracket scores are gone for 65 Major. I already reloaded 4 times. 65 Major Plus, AAA, and AA are complete. If you have it all, then maybe you can copy and paste it here for us, thanks.

Andy Smith,
Currently on no team year. OK to play 65AAA, 70AAA, or 70 Major.

Your wife is absolutely correct. You are a great hitter, great fielder, fast runner, and a team player!

Discussion: Tournament Play

Capt Kirk, I think the parks and recreation are not only concerned about protecting the public, but trying to avoid a lawsuit. In my town, there will be no more league play or tournaments until there is a vaccine. This was decided about 2 weeks ago. To further express their viewpoint, there is one field that we play most of our senior games at, and they have locked the restrooms at that field location. At the other end of the park where they are playing tennis, the restrooms are open, which is about a mile apart. With the park rangers coming by and taking pictures of us playing, makes it difficult to go behind a tree.

We are allowed to play on the fields on a first come first serve basis, but there are signs saying the fields are closed. I have been hesitant to play any pick up games, but have had many BP days, where it is easier to keep your distance from each other. Wearing masks is just too hot and uncomfortable in the heat. I have noticed that several July tournaments are being cancelled in Southern California. These are mostly tournaments that are run by the cities.

I know we all want to go out and play again, including myself, but being a senior, we are more susceptible to catching or giving covid-19 and surviving, than a young person. The Major leagues have postponed their seasons, although they are trying to open up, but still have not. Although against my nature to wanting to play, I may wait until there is a vaccine, before I play again, or at least see how these players playing these pick up games, are doing after the about 2-3 weeks.

Just saying,

Andy Smith

Dave has always accommodated any team's request for an early or late start. I do not ask too often, but when I have, it has never been a problem. Thanks Dave and any other Directors. All you have to do is ask, and if possible, they will always do their best to accommodate.

Just saying!
