Topic: Tournaments
Discussion: TOC Berths

I just read how SSUSA is giving awards to teams that are the only one in there age bracket and classification.

This is the correct thing to do.

My problem is when you sign up to play in a Championship Tournament as we did last March ISA Winter Nationals and are the only team in our age group and classification, we had to play against the younger age group and were not awarded the TOC berth.

Getting 5 runs or an extra infielder is not enough to make up for players 5 years younger, stronger and faster. Plus in our case being a Major team, we could not even use the quota of 6 home runs. Had to play under AAA rules.

We paid our entrance fee, booked flights and hotels. Is it our fault no other teams attended.

I think SSUSA should reconsider at least awarding the TOC berths in the future when this situation arises in 2016.

Discussion: Call for Prayers for John X.E. McAndrew

The Promotion 60 team passes our thoughts and prayers to John X.E. McAndrew's family.

I only played one time with X.E but could see he was a gentle giant of a man.

Discussion: Team Regions

§13.1(3) • TEAM REGIONS OF SSWC– A 2014 Rules Committee instruction for SSUSA staff to study
player density statistics in the Northeast was considered for potential implementation of a change.
Following an analysis of the Northeast, it was proposed that the Northeast states of Connecticut, Maine,
Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont be merged with New York and treated as a
single state for the application of the state and bordering states roster composition. • PASSED
UNANIMOUSLY

If I am reading this correctly, New Jersey and Pennsylvania can draw players from the above mentioned states since they are now merged with New York.

Always looking for an outfielder to join our team. If you are from any of the bordering states of NY and have an interest to join our team, contact me at mspieman@comcast.net.

I had the same procedure last year and was back coaching my track team in 9 days and playing 6 weeks after. You will do fine.

Discussion: ISA Winter Nationals

I would like to know when the 2015 ISA Winter Nationals will be held.

When I called they said March 1st and 2nd. The problem is March 1st is a Sunday and March 2nd is a Monday.

Thanks

Discussion: ISA Winter Nationals

Does anyone know when the ISA is holding their Winter Nationals. Last year it was March 1-2. We formed a new Major 60 team and would like to go to this tournament.

I assume all SSUSA Tournaments will be close to the same dates as last year.

Hey Birdie, tell Alan to get well soon. I had my Quadruple by pass two weeks ago and I am walking 2 miles a day and feel great. He will have no problems if they had to only fix one Artery.

Discussion: Is Pitching Mask mandatory

Just to satisfy my curiosity. If the mask breaks or if a team does not have their mask, will the team have to forfeit the game.

Was just thinking that why not make everyone wear a mask even while they are batting. Boy, wouldn't that cut down the power poduction. Now you all could see or (not see)how mush the mask hinders your vision.

I have a problem with the mandatory mask rule.

I tried the masks and found that it created some blind spots.

Since this rule was imposed, might as well throw
a screen in front of the pithers also.
