Jeez Dave! Only 600 teams at 9 different complexes on 33 different fields where there are time restrictions, field restrictions due to size, etc. Quit your crying! It sounds like Still Got Wheels feels he can do the job better then you. I say give him the job. I bet you donít spend hardly any time putting this together. Think about all the time you could spend with Fran. Oh wait - Fran says donít give up your day job. I donít know how you put up with clowns like this guy before every tournament. LMAO

Mannjo - You might want to look up the rule for whatever organizations rules you are playing under. SSUSA, NCSSA, and SPA all have slightly different rules for when you can put in a CR.

Discussion: Using a "no walks, strikes only" approach to shorten game time in a public league.

Your comment to Nancy are interesting. You state you donít want to lose the basics of the game but you want to use a no walks change to the rules. I would consider that a huge change to the basic rules of softball.. itís too bad that your league doesnít want to use the idea of starting with a 1-1 count as that speeds up the game. I still donít get why your 9 inning games last up to 2 1/2 hours.

Let me make sure I understand. You play a 9 inning game in 2-2.5 hours. Everyone in senior softball plays 7 inning games in aprox 1 hr 15 minutes. You want to do away with calling pitches balls with the idea this will speed up the game. What will happen is just the opposite. Pitchers knowing that they canít walk anyone will throw nothing but 12-15 foot pitches that hit the back 2 inches of the mat. If they miss and pitch is called a ball no big deal. Just keep on heaving it up to the plate until they hit that part of the mat with no penalty for throwing balls. Very bad idea in my mind.

Discussion: Courtesy runner

A group of us were doing what we do best last night - having a beer after getting killed in our league game. This question came up: An illegal courtesy runner is on first base and no one notices the infraction. The batter then gets a single and the CR is now on second. The defensive team now realizes that the CR is illegal. Can they at this point call it to the umpires attention and what would be the call?

Discussion: Rules Question

I put the question out there to see if I could snag him and guess what? I had never before seen a runner jump up in the air in the baseline but I was 95% sure that it would he would be out. The other question is something you go over early when training to be an umpire. Wayne must have went to a different school then the rest of us.

Discussion: Rules Question

Watching local senior game tonight. Runner on first was caught in run down between first and second. Baserunner was moving towards 2nd when 1st baseman threw ball towards 2nd. Baserunner did not raise his arms but rather jumped into the air and was hit by throw. He was in the baseline while doing this. Whatís the call?

Also, runner in same situation did not make any effort to get out of the way of the throw that would have completed a double play. Ball hits runner. Whatís the call?

Discussion: What Calls Can Be Questioned and Reviewed by Tournament Director

Wayne - Youíre a real piece of work. This has nothing to do with someones opinion on a rule. This has nothing to do with having to have everything their way. What is has to do with is getting the call correct according to the rules. Why donít you confer with all your so called experts on the subject and get back to us. Iíd really like to hear from some of these so called experts - ex pro and college umpires - you keep referring to.They would not be working at those levels if what you claim they have told you regarding most of the things you have commented on over the last few months. They would be out of a job and be working their way back up the ladder starting with Little League.

Wayne - You have my permission to continue your incorrect interpretation of SSUSA rules. I suggest you find new sources for help rather then your current sources.

Why bring uo interference? Nothing in the original question had anything to do with interference. Wayne, the umpire guru, strikes again!

Click on tournaments at top of this page. Scroll down to bottom and past years will come up. Click on any past year. Click on 50ís and go to that page and see which fields they played on. The answer will probably be that they have moved around.

Discussion: Rules for Courtesy Runner from the plate in regular leagues (non-tournament).

Our rules are as follows:
1. Coach must notify umpire before games begins identifying up to 2 players who might use CR from home.
2. CR must be touching backstop behind home plate until contact has been made. Our backstop is about 15 feet behind the plate.
3. CR can not get anything more then a single.
4. In our younger league the rule is not used. In our middle league the rule is rarely used. In our oldest league the rule is used on a regular basis. Our oldest league has players as old as 86. The rule is for injured players or for those that have some sort of physical problem that doesnít allow them to rum for themselves. It is not used just because someone is slow.

Discussion: 50 AAA

I am not disagreeing with most of what you stated. What I am saying is that it would be more cut and dry for everyone, including SSUSA, if everyone knew in advance what was going to happen. I know that there are some teams that will Ďplay downí to intentionally stay in same ratings group. It makes no sense to me to do that and waste money going to tournaments with the intention of not trying to win their bracket. However, it is also unfair to go to a tournament and finish behind other teams that do not get bumped up when your team is forced to do just that when you finish below them. I have requested an explanation multiple times and have never been given one. We have only been told that our team deserved the bump and the others did not. How is that even begin to be fair?

Discussion: 50 AAA

In my opinion there is far too much gray area currently. It drastically affected our team in 2013. We finished 5th in a 22 team bracket and were bumped from AAA to Major. Two of the teams that finished ahead of us remained AAA.

I feel that SSUSA should designate all major tournaments as ones that could affect your rating. They should determine by entrants in that group how many will move up or down. For example a group of 6 or less the winner will move up and the last place finisher will move down. In a group of 7 - 16, two will move up and two will move down. This takes all the guess work out of it.

For example, the major tournaments that would affect rating changes would be:

Winter Nationals
Spring Worlds
Southwest Championships
Reno
Western Nationals
Eastern Nationals
Las Vegas Worlds

You can add or subtract from the list.

Dave - I know nothing is for sure but what is your educated guess as to where the 60aaa and also the 65aaa are going to play. Thanks!

Discussion: Age question

In SSUSA your softball age is whatever your age is this calendar year. Your local league might be different. Example: if you turn 65 on September 9 of this year your softball age today is 65.
