Discussion: What Calls Can Be Questioned and Reviewed by Tournament Director

Hey Dave
I reread the original post
In my opinion, that post is referring to a judgement call.

"Our situation was a fair call on a ball hit down the 3rd baseline that hit the ground past 3rd base On or Near the chalk line on the foul side. At the time of the hit, it was called fair and 2 runners scored and the batter got a triple. At this point, if the ball was actually fair or foul is irrelevant. The Manager asked for a Rule review by the TD. I believe that a Fair/Foul call is a Judgement call and should not be allowed to be reviewed by the TD or changed once made weather right or wrong. The umpire felt that the call was wrong and told that to the TD and the TD overturned the Fair call and reset the game to No Pitch


fair/foul ball is a judgement call. maybe I am reading it wrong. It was not a rules question, it doesn't say if it was really fair or foul.(on or near the chalk line on the foul side) This sentence makes me think its a judgement call..

I might just be reading too much into it.
\Either way, always good to bicker with you

ps.. it doesn't really tell you which umpire told the TD it was a bad call..lol

Dave
I have a question... or statement
A judgment call cannot (should not) be overturned UNLESS the other umpire is asked for help by the 1st umpire that made the call.. The team CANNOT ASK FOR HELP. (on a tag, dropped ball. etc)
On a fair or foul ball that is called wrong, I cannot see anyway (even if the ump said she made a mistake) being overturned by a TD, or even by the umpire. that's like changing a strike/ball call.
Just my 2 cents worth.

also, teach umps that when you make a call like that, stay with your call. Even if you have to just say" I missed it, but it can't be changed")

I umped for many years and have said that more than once. It usually makes the situation tolerable, not right but tolerable.
Every ump makes mistakes, you just have to live with bad judgement calls.
Book rules, on the other hand, I will fight to the end of time if I think I'm right.

Hey
I want to put in my 2 cents
I have over the years had three "do overs"
The TD could not make a decision so both teams (for the sake of time) agreed on a " do over"
makes no sense, but it happens (2 were in national tournaments)

On the question above, a judgement call can NOT be (should not) reviewed by the TD.
The ump made a bad call, you just have to live with it. (as long as it is a judgement call, book rules are different)

Just my 2 cents

ps, if we start getting the TD to make decisions on judgment calls, it wont be pretty..lol

We have played your team over the last couple of years and ya'll are a class act (and a good team)
I think we are 1-2 against you.
CYA this weekend if the rain don't get us.

I have a question for you..
If you are a major team, why are you playing in the AAA division in Knoxville this weekend?
Don't get me wrong, I will play anyone, any team but if you are advertising for players to join your major team, you should play in the major division.
Just my 2 cents

nope, not enough teams
Hopefully it will make next year
They need to advertise at the earlier tournaments to help get the word out.
LOTS and lots of flyers and emails
You going to Knoxville?

Discussion: 50 AAA

Hey Dave
Here is what I think (since you asked)
We should only have 2 divisions (more teams per division)
call it lower and upper (less awards to be given out)
Lower will be 3 hrs with outs no one ups (5 runs per inning)
Upper will be 6 hrs with walks and one ups (7 runs per inning)

Let the teams that want to hit homeruns, hit them
The rest can play lower

This will get more teams in each division (tired of playing the same 3 teams each tourney)

Make mandatory move ups every 2 years.. (according to tournament results) Just because you have one good tourney, doesn't mean that you should be moved up.
Also teams like to defend their titles.

I don't think it is fair if the only tournament you win is the SPA worlds in Dalton (which might only have 6 teams in your division)
Most teams have at least one good tourney a year and if its that one, you get moved up to a division that you don't belong.

I know this probably wont happen, but you asked..

Tim,
I usually mess with Dave, but here is one for you.
I thought the top 2 teams in the Vegas tourney got bumped
I know it happened 5 years ago to a 60 major team.
Just saying

This is not a ssusa tourney, but hopefully some teams will come play in it.
There are no other ssusa tournaments on this weekend except on the west coast.
(that's why I posted it here)
Please don't delete, I am just trying to get some tournaments in the southeast.
Driving 6 hrs each way to every tournament is not fun.

Discussion: Safety Issue

Dbax
I have only seen that a few times and then it was only the shin guards (I take mine off when I hit)
I really don't see an issue with it.
If you start to make a rule against it, then you would have to make runners NOT wear helmets if they want to (have seen that more than the shin guards)
Just my opinion, it doesn't happen enough to make a rule against it

Discussion: Senior age limit

This happened in a SPA tourney last month
Each team had the option of using a screen in front of the pitcher. Some used it, some did not.
I don't agree to have the 40s playing, but it worked out in the end.
BTW, the 50 yr old team KILLED the 40 yr old team.

hey Sisavic
Use batting cages at BLD. They are right as you go in.
$1 for 20 swings
Well worth it and you don't have to worry about carrying balls, net etc to Vegas.

PS.. Didn't hurt any of our bats either.

Tim
We got 4 and then 5 innings plus the open in our games.
The 40 minute time limit was a good idea.
What I was saying, the 15 minute lapse BETWEEN games was the hold up. You could have played 50 min games in the same time.
It was more about the time BETWEEN games that was the hold up.
With no backup umps, it just took a LONG time for them to get back on the field. They did a good job once they got there.
Like I said earlier, I think it was handled it pretty good for the circumstances.
We will be back next year.
