If your SSUSA ID Card expires in 2016, will a player be allow to play in the TOC in Feb. 2017 or do you have to have an ID Card that expires in 2017 or later?

Discussion: Trump Rock

This may explain why LP hit one out in the Rocking Reno several years ago, temp was around 60 and the wind was blowing at 20-25 mph:
As a player, you should also be aware that weather has an enormous impact on the compression of a softball. Studies have shown that when the temperature is 100 degrees, an average softball looses 200 pounds of compression as compared with the same softball at 60 degrees. This means that a softball that is a 525 pound compression ball at 60 degrees may play like a 375 pound ball at 100 degrees. In addition, clouds, rain, and humidity also affect the compression of a ball. 70 degrees and sunny creates lower compression balls than if it was 70 degrees and cloudy. Leather balls generally take on more moisture in rainy or humid conditions than synthetic balls. This will generally raise the compression and level of play up to a point, then performance will decline once the ball takes on too much water and becomes too heavy.

Discussion: Trump Rock

Is the Rock softball, 44/375, to expensive to be the standard bearer for all SSUSA Tournaments? The Rock is the ball that is used in the World Championship in Vegas, but I believe that is the only SSUSA tournament that it is used.

Discussion: Hall of Fame Points

To summarize: If you are a AA team and win a SSUSA tournament that awards (5) ATP's and a MVP medal, make sure that you reward (6) players, since AA players are not eligible to accrue HOF points.
Note; The MVP Player's Medal for players playing on a (AAA, Major< & Major Plus teams) is a team MVP recognition and is not eligible for HOF points.
Enough said, I am getting ready for the TOC.

Discussion: Hall of Fame Points

SSUSA Staff: Thanks, my original question per the private email was how many ATP players + MVP selection were awarded to a team winning the Vegas World Championship. Your response triggered the question on whether or not the MVP received points for the HOF, the answer is NO. I did review the HOF requirements called out on the SSHOF website. The player(s) path to be eligible to be nominated for the HOF:
Point System Nomination Path
Who is eligible?
All nominees must be a minimum of 60 years old, have participated a minimum of 10 years in senior softball, and may begin earning nomination points at age 50. The following are the identified
categories that are available for nominations:
Player
Players may earn the following points from playing in National or World Senior Tournaments.
Major Plus & Major Classification 1 st Team All Tournament 1 Point
AAA 1st Team All Tournament ˝ Point
A player must have a minimum of 8 total points to be considered for nomination. The player must provide booklets with the following information:
 Completed NSSHOF Application
 Picture of the nominee in uniform
 Pictures of all the All-World or All-American awards
 Newspaper Articles or written documents
 Letters of recommendation from former Managers, Players, Sponsors, or NSSHOF Members

Discussion: Hall of Fame Points

Why doesn't the MVP of World Championship team accrue HOF Points? The MVP medal is given to all managers at the World Championship games in Vegas, you select one player from your team to receive the medal. I have given the MVP medal to players in the past, thinking those players would receive HOF points, but I understand from SSUSA that only ATP receive HOF points, not the MVP.
Capt Kirk
Note: In my opinion, If your team finishes 1-4 in the Vegas World Championship, the MVP selection should receive HOF points. Teams that finish 1-4 in the Vegas World Championship are awarded ATP's.

Discussion: Hall of Fame Points

JB, under 11.1 rule of the rule book talks to SSUSA Hall of Fame and 11.2 talks to the National Fame of Fame (SPA). No details are called out.
Our the Hall of Fame requirements the same for SPA and SSUSA?
Note:
The President of our league,Bill Altman, who started San Antonio Senior Softball League (SASSL), should be nominated in a category that is appropriate= for the Hall of Fame.

SSUSA: Pls clarify the Hall of Fame Points for (5) ATP and (1) MVP when a team wins a championship in Vegas. I checked the rule book in the Hall of Fame Section and I was unable to find any info on hall of fame points.
Thanks

Discussion: 65 AA

A great tournament with great teammates: Rick (Mgr), Marty, Terry, Billy, Ron, Fred, Larry, Ken, Jim M, Jim B, Mad Dog, JB, Vince, Juan, Eddie, Elroy, Mando. We have been knocking on the door for the last 2 years, finally won a world championship, Sore all over, but a good feeling, Our Manager did a great job to prepare us and the guys showed up for BP every day. We are looking forward in playing in the TOC in Feb., hopefully we can heal up and be ready to go. The wives did a great job in supporting us during the tournament and tolerating our aches and pains stories.

Discussion: Senior Softballs-44/375

I know that this topic has been discussed, which 44/375 senior softballs are the best for
the hot and humid summers in South Texas? We currently use a 44/375 Trump Stote in out our league play. The Rock is used in Vegas for the World Championship, when we play in local tournaments here in South Texas we try to use the Baden fire.

Discussion: Texas 60's AA Team Needs Players for Vegas

You sb able to add players from the same age group and rating I.E. 60's AA rated players:
4.2(2) • ADDING / RELEASING ROSTER PLAYERS
If a qualified team's roster falls below 12/13 players, the team may apply to add players until it reaches the 12/13 player level. Those players may be from the same age group in the same or lesser skill level, or equivalent.

Discussion: Colin Kaepernick credibility?

He was their starting QB in super bowl 47, he should be judged by his
peers on his ability to play football not his political views.

Discussion: Standarized Format for Tournament Results

In order to standardize tournament results for non-toc tournaments, I would recommend that TD's use LVSSA/SSUSA WORLD MASTERS CHAMPIONSHIPS format as a template for seed and bracket games results, to effectively communicate the results to the senior softball community.

Discussion: Labor Day Classic Postponement

I don't know all of the details why the Labor Day Classic in San Marcos, TX was cancelled and rescheduled to be played in Seguin, TX. I know that as a player who has played in a lot of tournaments in Texas, we are use to summer thunderstorms, it is welcome relief when we the rains come and cools things down for a moment. I have played in Texas Tournaments where the ump had to use a water bottle as a reference point for 2b, we dealt with it.

Discussion: HOW TO PREVENT A HEATSTROKE

Our Austin Senior Softball League plays on Monday's and Thursday's (Day Games). I have noticed a drop off in the number of players who are showing
up (smart ones), that puts additional pressure on the players who do. I know that I have played as many (4) games, and the heat/humidity does take
it's toll. The things that you should do to stay hydrate seems to go to the wayside in the heat of the battle. The league does a good job in providing water in the dugouts. I'm going to limit my playing to (2) games/day.
