Discussion: Playing Time

You do control the rotation of sitting right? And you don't sit players whole games do you? That's called self inflicted suicide and there is no solution.

It's about total innings played. And situations will dictate the time to sub your weakest and strongest players.

Another help in games you know are big is to sub early and use them as starters, because crunch time doesn't occur in innings 1-4 that often. So when innings 5-7 (where games are won) come up, you have what you want.

It's not an easy problem to solve, but that helps.

There's no special anything needed. It's called, email the scores as they occur, someone receives them and updates the PDF document that already exists for the brackets (that's if you don't have the laptop at the site), at the end of the day the PDF doc gets published to the website. Easy routine stuff, it's just not a priority.

Chief144,
With all due respect your response is laughable. They are called entry "FEES" for a reason. I'm sorry it ain't volunteer work skippy..... Yeah, recording 5 results an hour to a web page, ooh, that's a tough one. And all the bitheads just chuckled...

Discussion: Thanks to SSUSA

SSUSA,
A heartfelt thanks first to Tiffany and Stephanie at the SSUSA office. Much appreciation for your professional support in helping new players register, answering questions, and making roster adjustments.

To the SSUSA team, a well organized run tournament with excellent support from the field representatives at the North Collier Park, thanks Mike and Cal.

It was also good to see Joe, UIC and some familiar umpires who we know can be counted on for a quality effort & performance. Overwhelmingly a really good crew. Yes there was one weak link who we all know as well, it seems "vision care" are still familiar terms to you....painful man, just painful to watch, but at least this time that pain was shared with the other team. It gave us a laugh or two.

And finally, to the staff at North Collier Park, Gary/Bobby, nice meeting you guys, thanks for the kindness and help. That's just a beautiful facility, it makes you want to play ball just looking at the field. Thanks as well.

Thanks for the post and thanks to SSUSA for providing the board. It's a good reminder for such a positive vehicle that has become a part of the routine.

Discussion: Player needed for National

Work changes will have two players miss a SSUSA National tournament in Naples, FL. So this provides two openings for players, specific positions needed - SS type infielder or P. Playing Major level so need players to come from top AAA, or a M/M+ team from Florida.

If you are interested, please email HLLAMF@gmail.com or call 904-982-9954. Thanks...

Softball4b,
You hit the target with the bottom line, well said.

Full Monty,
I don't doubt it. But without proper lighting (which you should know to be true at some of those fields), dark is dark and unsafe. And the blinding sunlight for some of those fields (which you should also know to be true), it's unsafe.

That's my only point, unsafe conditions at any field warrant quick action by the umpires and TD. Or there is frustration and possibility for injury and temper eruption.

A pot of water on the stove is not harmful. But turn the burner on High, and it's going to boil over. And so it did apparently....

Well softballnuts, I'm sorry playing in unsafe conditions is not acceptable at anytime, especially at the cost and level of play here.

This isn't the grocery store league where everyone chipped in 20 buck for the year, and it isn't the talent level you see in league play......

Guys can get seriously hurt with the level of play by teams at those Nationals.

Discussion: Suspensions

Are the players involved to blame for their actions? Yes. But the player behavior is only the symptom. So we suspended the symptoms, and my guess is NOTHING happend to the root cause of the incident. And that's where the focus should be what was the root cause?

Same thing that's caused other problems....the poor field conditions should have been handled by the TD and the umpires long before a player has to say enough is enough and walk off because the TD and umpires didn't do their job.

There is way too much focus on the player behavior here.....and the same TD and umps will be there next year.

This is always a problem in Vegas. Playing with bad fields that are not safe, playing in low or no light conditions. Our last Vegas tournament we played where the outfield could not see a routine fly ball it was so dark. It was a joke....and honestly, I don't blame those guys for complaining.

The umpire stories that come out of the Vegas tournaments are always hilarious...and sad at the same time.

I thought the SSUSA tournament year began in November so that would require a 2014 card.....

Discussion: 3 Game Guarantee

titanhd, You are right, it won't happen if you play 3 seeding games. But aren't seeding games really like playing in the back yard? Let's see, drive 400 miles with a $500+ entry fee to play 3 backyard meaningless games? Been there, done that, got the picture from the rodeo.

Discussion: 3 Game Guarantee

Many discussions on this here missouridave, it shouldn't happen, but with the format provided, it does. It does because it is mathematically possible. What becomes a double elimination for some (win 2 or win 1 of 2) becomes a triple elimination for others (lose first 2). That's right, there is a reward for losing the first two.....try explaining that to guys who come back to softball after a long hiatus.

I and others wish this would be solved once and for all. It's not hard, go to a four game guarantee...problem never happens again.
