You know what happens every year? Some guy asking when the schedule will come out. Every year. Never fails.

I agree. And I would also like to point out that taking a broom and sweeping the base path is not dragging the field.

I'm pretty sure the Mississippi River is the dividing line. If you're from the west, and play and win in the east, you do not get to represent the East. Staff?

This was after the Southwest Bandits and Vatos game. Vatos, could you guys check your bags? Maybe somebody picked it up by accident.

Gonedeep. Good for you. But this is senior softball. Big difference at our age.

Discussion: 2019 National Senior Games presented by Humana Boasts Record-High Athlete Attendance

The National Senior Games are run like the Huntsman games. After three pool games everyone is sent to an A flight, B flight, C flight etc. They don't always get it right though. And there may be some sandbagging. Lol.
It's being run be USA softball. Formally ASA.

The sports complex that is being used is spectacular. Easily in the conversation of top 10 in the country. If only they could figure out how to use the scoreboards.
Scores are posted almost instantly online. You can even get results text messaged or emailed to you.
Very impressive tournament. The question is where are all the men's teams?

The one up rule would solve everything. So simple.

The Arizona Dream Team want to know if any women's 50 teams are planning on attending in August.

Discussion: 50 AAA

The point is teams get bumped up without running through tournaments. My team last year won the Winter Worlds with 10 teams entered. Then we won Spring Worlds with 8 teams entered. Went to Southwest Championships and took third. Only 8 teams entered. Bumped to Major Plus for rest of year.
Went to Worlds and went 1-4. Year over. Would have been exciting to play for a chance to win the 60 Major bracket that had 31 teams.

Another thing is teams lose players to injury or other circumstances and SSUSA makes their bumps without any clue but tournament results. No disrespect, but whoever is in charge of ratings most of the time does not know what's going on on the field.

Oh and Major players are allowed to hang out in AAA. By your own rules each team is allowed three.

I've posted this before. If a you legally assemble a team within SSUSA rules you should not be bumped up mid season if you are successful.
Some teams dream of winning the Triple Crown or just the Worlds and are built with that in mind. They should be allowed to try and attain that goal.
The way it is now, if a team wins a tournament they avoid playing another major tournament the rest of the year in hopes of not getting bumped up.
I say just make your bumps after th World Championships.

Hey Dave,
California and Arizona do not have land borders! And there are many others.
