Discussion: Looking to play in the SOUTHWEST CHAMPIONSHIPS...

Any 50 or 55 team looking for a warm body for the Vegas tournament.

Played last year with Bud Light Guam (40 AAA), KM Sportz 50 (Major), and Cal Energy 55 (Major).

My new team for this year is JU 55 (Major Plus) but won't be playing our first SSUSA tournament till the Rock N' Reno Challenge Cup.

Willing to travel from Sacramento. Contact "Q" @ (916) 539-0473 or

Care to elaborate on what you just wrote? So what are you trying to say?

Discussion: Bad experience for a Class Tournament - Worlds

I like Mike's comment.

Maybe the umpire could've approached the winning coach and asked him point blank, "Did your runner slide across the line?" Only two possible answers. Somebody has to live with the lie. If he says YES, then we have a tie game and 'BruceAZ' will be happy and will get another shot at winning the game.

Integrity and sportsmanship is what SENIOR SOFTBALL is all about!, right?

Cal Energy - 55 Major
KM Sportz - 50 Major (2017 National Champions)
Bud Light Guam - 40 AAA ('15,'16 Bronze Medalists)
2013 World Champions - East Bay Oldies (50 Major)
2011 TOC - East Bay Oldies (50 Major Plus)

I LOVE THIS GAME!, despite some bad calls.

Discussion: Collision at 1st Base

Remember, defense obstructs, offense interferes. Did the defender obstruct the runner? In this particular play which has happened to me twice, I would rule an out. The INTENT of the double bag is to PREVENT collisions. Both times when I could've collided with the first baseman, I chose to run left and PASS (not touch) the white portion of the bag, thereby avoiding a definite collision. I was still out on both plays but continued to play in the tournament because I avoided possible injuries. I would rather be out on the play than OUT of the tournament. Bottom line SENIOR guy, be safe out there. Your health is more important than game and I know SSUSA would agree with me.

Discussion: Rating Question

I do believe its all about your player index rating. For the last two years, I was able to play 55 Major Plus, 50 Major, and 40 AAA in the World Championships. I think each of these divisions will give you player index rating of 8. 50 Major Plus which I played from '09-'13 gives you a rating of 9. Some players will rate a 10.

Discussion: 2017 Significant Rule Changes - Penalty for non-compliance

"Steve in Tucson" - I touched white in two separate plays last year on close plays at first and was not called out. Both umpires saw that if I went to orange, I would've COLLIDED with the fielder (going after badly thrown balls) on both instances. Bottom line, I try to avoid contact at first at all times due to the over-57 condition of my body internals and parts.

Discussion: Taping of bat handle.

Hey "Swing for the fences", there goes your power.

Hey "Downs", the 2017-18 Rulebook is online and you can download it. Also, since when is an "altered" bat legal for use in any association.

Rulebook (P. 16): 3.4(4)- ALTERED EQUIPMENT

A bat or ball is considered altered when the physical characteristics of a legal softball bat or ball have been changed (EXAMPLE: chilling softballs). Replacing the handle of a metal bat with a wooden or other type handle, inserting material inside the bat, applying excessive tape (more than two layers) to the bat grip or painting a bat other than at the top or bottom for identification purposes are considered altering the bat. Applying a foreign substance to the barrel of the bat constitutes altering the bat. (For penalty, see 3.4(6)). Replacing the grip with another legal grip is not considered altering the bat.


SSUSA agreed to follow the 2007 Summit Altered Bat Recommendation:

A. Penalty for using an altered bat - If a bat is suspected of being altered to enhance performance, a tournament official will determine if the bat will be allowed to be used in play or will request that it be voluntarily surrendered by the owner for inspection. (I'll stop right here).

In other words, I couldn't find anything written in the new rulebook where "altered equipment" can be used.

I read Rule 3.4 (G), and "BJ" is verbatim on this one.

Discussion: Obstruction?????

1.48 OBSTRUCTION Obstruction is the act of:

A. A defensive player or team member who hinders or prevents a batter from striking at or hitting a pitched ball.

B. A fielder who is not in possession of the ball, in the act of fielding a batted ball, nor about to receive a thrown ball, who impedes the progress of a runner or batter-runner who is legally running bases.

The Screamer5 - "within the baselines" is incorrect. Just remember, don't impede his running path. I know you "round" the bag when attempting to go to the next bag.

Discussion: Your opinion on best Senior Bat

"Benji4", oh yeah! Well I use to have Parnell's other signature bat (32 oz. Gold barrel with his name, 528 (HRs he hit in one season), and the word BAUXITE on it. Trying to retrieve it from a former EBO teammate that needed an ASA bat for league play. I'm not going to mention Jesse Vargas' name by the way. Will be seeing you on the circuits soon. Good luck!

Hey "jackbrun", does this "meanie" play on the SENIOR tournament circuit?

Discussion: Intentional walk rule

In our SENIOR leagues here in Sacramento (SPSSC & GSSCS), every team makes the playoffs so intentionally walking the "tournament" player is like 99.99% not done. During the playoffs, that percentage changes which is understandable. But if you intentionally walk a batter for the second time, he gets two bases, a third time (have never seen this in 7 seasons) would be 3 bases.

Discussion: 2015 Winter Worlds/Phoenix and team for 2016

The way I see it is: All teams have between 15 -20 catchers, "CR" is widely used, everyone has two arms, and you might have one teammate that can't hit a HR with a senior bat. And maybe you bat above .700 with nobody on and .200 with runners in scoring position. Just my 4 cents (adjusting for inflation).
