SSUSA’s first one day tournament & it was a great success! Rain stayed away - great softball complex - fields prepped between each game thanks to Brad & crew - Travis from City Rec dept had everything prepared & took care of every request - Ken Smith’s umpires adapted to SSUSA playing rules without a hitch - teams enjoyed the tournament & are excited about future tournaments in Boise! All this & we finished 30 minuets early!

Thanks again on behalf of SSUSA for making this a great tournament & making my job very easy!

Discussion: Stealing other teams Softballs

Dbax, ALL teams are given 6 balls for each tournament & if you play more than 6 games you are given a new ball for each game. Many teams like to have more than that & that's ok, but you have buy them. The gates between the fields at BLD that could be left open were open to allow teams to get HR balls. The balls that were returned to the table were put in a box for teams to get. Kudos to the maint guys who retrieved a lot of balls!!!
Agree 100% also about taking some other teams balls!!!

We, Game On, thought the fields were great, umpires were better than in many tournaments, bottled water in dugouts was great!

Wish I could say something good about the TD, but it was Mike! LOL Good job, Buddy!

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: morning sunrise

There was a SSUSA rule allowing this to happen in 2016. The rule was repealed after the 2016 season & not allowed in 2017 or after. The game "may" be delayed if the sun is in the pitchers eyes at the discretion of the TD.

Discussion: DAVE & BENJI4 READ WHAT OTHER WOMEN TEAMS THINK ABOUT THIS PARK.

Ms Dee,

You were moved to those fields to "avoid" the late night games you complained about. Sorry but TENTATIVE" MEANS JUST THAT - CAN/MAY BE CHANGED!
I book rooms for my team & take my chances. Sometimes we have had to travel from Boulder Station to Desert Breeze which is by far the longest drive. You adjust so that you are there before your scheduled game time! And guess what, you still get to play!!! And by the way there are places eat/get stuff close to those fields. Yes nearer to Shadow than Hollywood, but not far.
Hope you can put this behind you & enjoy being able to play softball. I know at 70+, I do!!
My truck was gone through while at BLD last week, I might have left it open, but someone was going through looking for things!

GOOD LUCK!

Discussion: Carrying bat

While playing in St George a couple of years ago one of our players was called out for carrying the bat to 1st base! I tried to find out why/rule etc, but to no avail! But he wasn't thrown out or banned from playing in St George!
By the way, the umpire was one of SSUSA's umpires!!
Oh well! LOL!!

Discussion: Pitchers Chest Protection

I just finished my league game wearing the chest protector. It didn't bother me at all, pitching or fielding. As for batting I was 3/4 & hit the ball hard. Didn't notice the vest at all even while running the bases. Oh, we won 21-10.
Did not get hit by any balls, which is ok by me!! I'm sure that test will come someday.

More to follow next week in Vegas, but for now it's everything DOWNS said it was!

Thanks,

Chief

DOWNS & JETHRO...Received it today & have tried it on & have been swinging a bat. I am going to wear it tonight in my local league game & see how it goes. As I said above, I found it on Amazon, ordered it on Apr 10 & received it today.

Jim, thanks for your input & Ed says hi & thanks for the + comments.. We play against each other tonight!!

More to follow,
