The Nor Cal Senior Softball website says "Domain Expired". Anybody have any info about this?

Discussion: EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR RULING WMC 50-Major Matter

Real disappointed that the deleted thread turned into a pissing contest between Tim and Cornerstone, and even more disappointed that SSUSA staff has now banned Tim from posting on this board. I think he had some legitimate concerns that have not been answered..

So staff, please answer this one question once and for all: did Cornerstone add any "illegal" players when they stacked their roster for this tournament?

And no, I am not associated with either of these teams - just a player who believes that any add ons for this tournament shouldn't be allowed.

Discussion: West Coast Aftershock -

If cooling down softballs is a violation of Rulebook 3.4(4): Altered Equipment, does that mean it is a violation to warm up bats as well? We have all seen these sun - reflective "hot boxes" that a lot of players carry around.

Discussion: Pitcher Protection

Unfortunately, a face mask, shin guards, chest protector, and cup have all become necessary equipment for pitchers who want protection from all the hot bats.

Any pitchers out there have any recommendations on how to protect the feet? Not sure if there is a steel toe softball shoe out there (Tanel: take notice - might be a hot seller!). The feet seem to be the only part of the body that needs a little more protection.

I get what bkb555 is saying - never really thought of 40 year olds as being "seniors". But I guess their money is as green as ours.

It won't be long and we'll probably see a 30's division...

Discussion: Las Vegas 2013

To SSUSA:

Thanks for another great weekend! We played on some crappy fields (Warm Springs) and some great fields (Arroyo Grande), but really appreciate the opportunity to be part of a tournament where we can meet and play teams from other parts of the country! Very cool.

So now we move on to 2014 - bittersweet in parting with some teammates, but awesome in looking forward to playing with new guys! All part of the game of life.

Yes, my wife really enjoys following the team too. We've been to Vegas and Phoenix a few times now. And we will go where ever this tournament is held (as long as we are healthy enough to attend).

Any thoughts about a new venue? (Great way to meet new friends and see the country). Socal? Florida? Denver? Norcal?

Easy boys - not bustin' anybody's balls here, just an attempt at some light hearted humor.

We all know what a great job SSUSA does in putting this whole thing together - the premier softball event of the year! Really looking forward to it.

Good luck and stay safe.

Discussion: Las Vegas Schedule

Dear Terry, Dave, Fran, George, et al:

I'm guessing that you're feeling a little pressure to post the schedules for the 480 plus teams who will be in Las Vegas next week.

Relax! Take a few extra days to enjoy the fun and frivolity that Vegas has to offer. Go out and have a few beers or enjoy a show - no need to hurry with this. Just because there are well over 5,000 players (not to mention spouses) who are trying to figure out there schedules for next weekend doesn't mean that you have to cave in to their need to know. Screw 'em - don't release any info until you're good and damn well ready.

Love,

The real deal

Discussion: Bat Compression Testing Device

In one of the leagues I play in, there is a team of youngsters that has been beating everyone else on a regular basis. Someone complained to the commissioner about them using illegal bats, so he did a "bat compression test" with his new tester (comes in a small plastic case) and found that they had been using 3 shaved bats, which were pulled out of circulation. This team hasn't won a game since...

Anyone know anything about these bat compression testers? It looks like a small vise (so I'm told) that gives a reading on the bat's flexion / compression tolerance.

Taits: not going to Turlock. Looks like we're done until Vegas, although I'll be playing in a kid's tournament next weekend with my sons in South Lake Tahoe. When do you think you'll be playing again?

After checking out all the bracket results, looks like 78 teams participated in this "local" tournament! Pretty good showing for NCSSA - certainly had the feel of a "national" tourney. Pretty fortunate to live in an area that supports Senior Softball.

Omar, I agree. This tournament was well run, and a lot of fun. The umpires were great for the most part (except for the calls that went against us - lol).

SSUSA or NCSSA: Any chance of getting another tournament at this venue - perhaps earlier in the year?

Taits: Thanks for the email - hope you're feeling better soon.

Discussion: RE; NCSSA HOF event this week at BLD in Manteca

Really enjoyed this tournament and seeing some old friends.

A couple of observations:

Some of the team uniforms are awesome. My favorites: Nor Cal Warriors, Oh My, NW Legends (to name a few - a lot of others are pretty cool too). I guess the days of a gray t -shirt with a number on the back are over.

Saw a few games of 50 Major Plus division. Wow! The distance and frequency of the home runs was unreal. In general, these guys are bigger and stronger than the players in other divisions. The down side: didn't see a lot of defense being played (not that they can't - just mostly 5 run innings with a lot of bombs). Thanks to NCSSA for allowing "over the limit" home runs to be "walks" instead of outs, otherwise it could get real ugly for the pitchers.

Looking forward to Las Vegas.

I believe there was a bracket of combined divisions (60 Major and 55 AAA). Anyone know who won this bracket?
