Discussion: softball replacement

Just a thought, if there is no benefit to using a new ball each time you bat why do it?

Dave thanks for the response. Don't get old cause SSUSA and USSSA look a lot alike. I did mean SSUSA.

Discussion: softball replacement

Can someone from USSSA please clarify. We played in a sanctioned tourney and had the manager from the opposing team replace the softball in use with a brand new one every time they came to bat and then took it back after they were done hitting. They did this every inning for 7 innings. It was the same ball as the Baden ball that started the game. Not that the ball deteriorates, but the Fire ball goes from yellow/green to brown after a couple infield hits. I asked the umpire and he said it was totally legal. It seems like an advantage for teams with large budgets. Is this legal?

The best thing is to call the home office at the number below. I believe all newbies start as AAA.

Are you a lefty that hits the ball hard all over the place. If so, I think I played with you back in my 20's. Walt Kado. Too bad you didn't move to AZ, We could use you.

Webbie,

In checking back they have not moved up 2 70 major teams for the last 5 years. Don't know why they would start now. I freely admit Timberworks is the best 70 team.. You could add + or ++++ it wouldn't matter. And with the new 70 year olds they have coming up you could add more +++++. There is no way to make it fair for any another 70's team to play against them.

Webbie,

Not sure where you got your information but AZ Ancients has not been reclassified as of this writing. ( Maybe you have the secret code)I'm not sure why they would .. we were 4th out of 5 teams in the Western Nationals and 2-2 in the Western states, and 2nd in the Worlds...certainly not major+ caliber. Besides the fact we are 1-19 over the last 6 years versus Timberworks and they proved they are better than any 65 Major+ team. Not sure why you think this deserves a bump. If anything Timberworks should play 60 major + now to protect the lesser teams.

Discussion: major plus

Way to man up Doak! Your rant almost brought me to tears thinking how badly I feel for Timberworks. You are right about one thing the major plus division is broke. A team with a 99.9% tourney winning percentage can't get anyone to play against them, that's a shock! Why would a team from Florida, Virginia, Wisconsin or wherever want to spend all that money to get beat up? And now you want to beat up the 70 major teams. We are a team of players all from Arizona. We are friends, we play locally together and against each other. We have no desire to recruit from other states, and we have zero major plus players on our roster, and we don't sandbag. What you are suggesting by putting Timberworks in with the 70 major teams is ludicrous. They tried this in the 2019 Southwest 65 championships. What a fiasco. I said at the time there was a huge advantage to the teams that were in the opposite bracket of Timberworks. And it came true, you sent team after team to the losers bracket and we (AZ Ancients) were in the opposite bracket and we won the major part of that championship. But it didn't end there, you wanted to beat us twice to claim the major plus title. Oops there I go again I'm tearing up. But I see you have a solution, let the inmates run the prison.. by having major plus players decide how to move forward. I have a solution.. only 3 major plus players can play on any one team. I'm probably the only one that will speak up, but in talking with other players many feel the same way. So as for sympathy for Timberworks, you'll not see it from me.

Titan since you don't really want to give your real name, you need to brush up on your rules for roster exemption players. From the rulebook if a participating teams roster Falls below 12 players the team may apply to add players until it reaches the 12 players level as roster exemption players. These players maybe from the same age group in the same or lower skill level.
