Discussion: You make the call.

B.J., I agree with waiting until the batter completes the at bat. Can you clarify; in SSUSA the player would not have been allowed in the game without being listed on the scorecard at the time the game begins? Thanks,

Discussion: Midwest Championships Rogers, AR

First, I agree with each of you....the Midwest Championships should (needs to) come back to KC. But, being from the KC area, I "could be" a bit biased. 😊

2nd, creins, there were 4 Arkansas teams "listed" this year. But you are correct on the fact that no team from TN participated. Additionally, the info below does not list a team from TN either - even when the tournament was in KC. Now, a team, or two, from TN could have participated in any one of the non-listed years.

Just some figures:
2009 at Mid-America in Shawnee, KS (58 total teams):
IL - 15 teams; MI - 11; WI - 11; IN - 5; MO - 5; 3 each from KY, MN and OH; and 1 each from IA and KS

2013 at Mid-America in Shawnee, KS (57 teams):
MO - 17 teams; IA - 7; KS - 6; 5 each from MN, IL, and CO; 4 from NE & AR; 2 from WI and 1 each from MI & OK

2016 - 1st year in AR (46 total teams):
MO - 16 teams; 5 each from IL, KS, and AR; 4 from OK & NE; IA - 3; and 2 each from TX & MN

2021 - Rogers, AR (37 total teams):
MO - 15 teams; TX - 7; OK - 5; 4 each from KS & AR; NE - 2
0 teams anymore from IL, MI, WI, IN, KY, MN, OH, IA, or CO
1 positive note.....the number of teams from TX & OK have increased.

Discussion: Senior League Play with Pitcher using a SCREEN

Spider9188, our league in the Kansas City area has used the pitching screen for at least 6 years now. Here are our rules:
All teams must use the screen. It’s also recommended that pitchers wear protective gear (mask, shin guards and chest protector).
1. The screen will directly face home plate within three to six feet in front of the pitching rubber.
2. The screen must cover a minimum eight inches (i.e., one third) of the width of the pitching rubber.
3. The pitcher cannot “hide” behind the screen and pitch over it; the batter must be able to see the pitched ball, without the screen being in the way, from its release all the way to the strike mat.
4. Any batted ball striking any portion of the screen as observed by the umpire will be declared a dead ball and foul ball. A batter can use up his courtesy foul by hitting the screen but cannot foul out by hitting it. Thrown balls are in play.
5. The screen must be placed to the left of a right-handed pitcher, and to the right of a left-handed pitcher to maximize the pitcher’s safety.
6. Any pitch delivered with the screen not in a legal position will be declared “no pitch.” If a pitcher refuses to place the screen in the correct position, the umpire will notify the player’s manager and remove the pitcher from pitching. If a team’s second pitcher does the same, he will be ejected.

Discussion: 2020 LVSSA/SSUSA World Masters Game Results!!

Kudos to LVSSA/SSUSA and whomever is personally responsible, so far, for actually posting the game results of the 2020 LVSSA/SSUSA WORLD MASTERS CHAMPIONSHIPS. Very nice.

Discussion: Pitchers stance and ball presentation

B.J., maybe I'm misreading the rule. I read it to say the pitcher's "pivot" foot has to remain in, or in contact with, the pitcher's box -- not just "at least one foot".

E. The pivot foot must remain in contact with the pitcher's box until the pitched ball leaves the hand. If a step is taken, it can be forward, backward, or to the side, provided the pivot foot is in contact with the pitcher's box and the step is simultaneous with the release of the ball.

I "think" you are really talking about the Oil City Classic in Tulsa for those dates. The Cow Town Classic was scheduled for the first week of April, and it WAS cancelled.

Discussion: Need Clarification

Papajoe56, I have been in contact with Will Rogers (tournament director for the Oil City Classic). He claims he is unable to access the SSUSA Message Board, for whatever reason, and has asked that I pass along the following -- from him, to you and any other interested parties.
"I never cash checks until tournament time, thus no refund is ever needed. The Oil City IS approved by SSUSA and listed on the web site."
If you wish to contact Will directly, his email address is His phone number is (816) 916-7891.

To anyone on Team Texas' 65+ AAA team who may know the latest on your outfielder (who went down with the heart condition during the game at Vegas-Worlds this past Thursday)......anyone know how he's doing? Is he OK, or is he going to be OK?

Discussion: To Team Texas -- "Thumbs Up"

The KC Kids 65AAA team would like to give a "both thumbs up" gesture to the Team Texas 65AAA team for giving us one heck of a battle this past weekend at the Rocky Mountain Championships. We met 3 times in this tournament. We won the pool play game -- Team Texas may have been setting us up for the kill by not winning that game :-) -- because we met them again in the 1st bracket play game and they beat us 24-23. So, we had to come back through the losers bracket in order to play them again for the championship. It ended up coming down to "who blinked first". We won that game, but then due to time constraints in order to catch their flight out of Denver, Team Texas could not play the "if" game. So.....THUMBS UP to you guys for a most enjoyable, hard fought tournament!!!!

Jessica, did your boyfriend ever find what he was looking for -- specifically at If not have him give me a call...913.481.7937.

And the same for you. If you are still looking for a team on which to play, or place to play, give me a call.

Discussion: 4 players needed including pitcher

d45, you may want to verify SSUSA'a 2016 tournament schedule, since you list Kansas City (in July) as what you believe will be part of your schedule. I'm assuming you were thinking that would be the location for the Midwest Championships, but SSUSA moved that tournament to Rogers, AR this year. Not aware as to why, but just letting you know.
