Thanks for the input. It was just a thought.

Has SSUSA considered reducing the number of divisions in the 70 age group? Major Plus teams can chose players from all over and thus must be in a separate category. However, there are approximately 17-AA, 86-AAA and 38 major teams (very few on the east coast). By eliminating the AA category and with some adjustments you could come up with 71-AAA teams and 70-Major teams which would make for some nice tournaments in each of these two categories throughout the country. Just a thought.

SSUSA...My main point in the runs against is if that without that one non completed inning against Vios, our run differential would be +27 for an average of +4.5, a huge difference in average. In addition, one of our 10 run victories was against a AA team. It would seem to me that since we were competitive against The Bostonians and DAF/Global Trailers, and could have easily lost any one of those three one run games, maybe Senior Softball should look to down grade the teams we beat by ten runs to AA, increasing the number of teams in AA, making that division more competitive and leave us where we can play teams like The Bostonians even up. I can only ask that SSUSA take a closer look into our rating change.

SSUSA...CC Medical Services vs. Vios in the 70 AAA. The score was recorded as 32-11 but the 7th inning was never completed and should have been recorded as a forfeit (according to the rule Book). Going into the 7th inning, the score was 15-11 in favor of CC Medical Services, a very competitive game. We were ahead thanks to their pitchers walking 10 batters in the first six innings, but things exploded in the top of the 7th inning when they walked nine batters, including 5 in a row. We did win our bracket (our first tournament win, other than two team tourneys, in six years), but three of the six games were by one run. That one inning threw the whole rating process out of whack.

At the Winter Nationals this past November, our team was playing a close game (+4 run differential) when we came to bat in the top of the 7th inning. During the top of the 7th inning, the opposing pitchers, there were two, lost the strike zone and walked 9 batters, gave up numerous hits and had a few misplays in the field as we scored 17 runs. They were only able to record one out when they conceded the game by walking off the field before the inning was completed. Is that considered a forfeit or does the score get recorded even though the inning was not completed and the home team did not get a turn at bat in the bottom of the 7th? And should those runs be counted in the run differential for rating purposes? That one inning, if the runs were allowed to be counted, raised our run differential +3 runs per game. Is this correct?
