I know it was bad when a 55 team which is true AAA plays a Major team, untill the rule is changed and define better it going to happen. I have talked to Ridge and other and it will be define better so it will not happen again. But the rule states all new teams will be AAA untill they or rated or unless there rosters show they are a Major or above. Even untill a AA plays they have to start AAA. But new define rules will make sure this will not happen in Bracket games. I know it happen is other groups too. so maybe all will read this and make it better for senior ball.

yes there was alot of rules that need to be define a little better. I have all ready email the board and the problem we had will be worked on in dallas in Nov. It is a problem when new team rosters are involved with last year team rosters. but it will be addressed and hope it will changed for the best for all the players. but it is a ongoing problem when there is not enough teams to make a division for everyone to play.

Discussion: SSUSA TOURNAMENT AIKEN SC SUMMARY

TERRY, FRAN,DAVE AND STAFF
I have played Senior ball for 10 year, Run tournamets for last 4 years for SPA, I am so sad to say this was the worst run tournament I have ever played in. Great fellowship with other players, great place to play hitting cages great placed to hit before the game, but thats where it ended, umpires that didn't know the rule of senior ball or the game itself at times. The director or UIC didn't know the rules when called to the field. Dragging out the tournamet for 3 days with a 3 team bracket starting on Friday morning when most 50's still work. sitting around waiting with open fields and teams ready to play.
this is just a few things IMO needs to be looked at to help senior ball to grow and not make teams avoid tournaments

Discussion: Ridge Hooks has been hospitalized

Steve
thanks for letting our softball brothers know about Ridge. It was a long day for all of us at SPA with prayers that Ridge would recovery would be fast, and the Drs said his feeling in his arm and leg is back and he is recoveing is good.
It will be slow for Ridge because of his fast pace hopping around the country promoting senior softball.
Miss Ann is by his side and will help him slow down a little. they said he already trying to plan what he had to do net week.
But thanks to all our friends for their prayers. Like Steve and Larry and others Ridge has prayed with me so many times hat really helped me in my time of need. His honesty and integrity has no match in senior ball
again thanks for your payers

Discussion: ISA World

It was a good tournament to see and talk to some friends because of the delays, Jerry did a good job gettint the tourney in, alot of games in a short time frame. only thing that was bad IMO was the big field 370 in the middle you would see 6-3 games in major+ for teams that was not adjust to the long fields and trump ball that got soft with the heat in the upper 90's. our team Kayson/ Southern Elite won the Major 50 because of foul balls and strike out because of the 1 pitch. We do have a outstanding pitcher that keep the other teams guessing what was coming the screwball or the curve.
I did not like the extar game in the loser brkt, but without it we would have when home Sat. and would not been there on Sunday. We were 6-4 overall and won the tourney and Team Arkansas was 4-2 overall and came in runnerup.
They are a first class team that if the tournament had stayed in the proper format would have IMO won the tournament.
