Discussion: suggestion for SSUSA

Dave,
I know it is almost an impossible job.
And you do a great job doing it
I was just throwing out an suggestion for next year.
I just looked at the 55 major bracket.

Discussion: suggestion for SSUSA

I have a suggestion for the Vegas Tournament.
(And I know its a HUGE tourney with many different brackets of all sizes)
Have the bracket games start 2 hours after the RR games.
Last weekend in the 55 major, there were about 20-25 of the 35 teams sitting around the ball park for about 2 hours to see if they were one of the 8 teams that had to play on Friday night.
The teams should have been able to been back at their hotels resting, healing, enjoying Vegas etc.
The brackets could have been put up online after the RR games and had an hour for the teams to get back to the park.
Unless you we 2-0 and scored lots of runs, you had to be at the park because two of the middle of the road teams (where they ended up in the standings) had to play that night.
Either start the games later of just make the bottom 4-8 teams play .
This ways it lets most of the teams enjoy Vegas (or wherever) in between games.
Just my two cents worth
(and thoughts of most of the teams that had to come back to the park at 5pm and sit for an hour then go home)

Discussion: I have changed my mind......

I have been an opponent to the rule of making the pitchers wear masks.
I have changed my mind. (Thanks SSUSA)
We played in Vegas this weekend and I was hit in the face by a very hard hit softball.
The mask saved my cheek from being crushed...lol
It still hurt and gave me a very sore cheek and a black eye.
I will be wearing one from now on.
Just my 2 cents as always.
Thanks again SSUSA.

Discussion: Vegas Bracket 60's

Ill take your word for it..
Looks great online in pictures
Some of my guys played there 2 years ago when they had the water problem.
Looks like they have made great improvements.
YELP rates it number 1 for softball parks in Vegas.
I play on crappy fields every week in league so I am looking forward to playing there.

Discussion: Umpire Hit by a Batted Ball

It is a live ball since it was pass the infielders.
Just a little more info.. If it hits the umpire and a player catches it before it hits the ground, it is NOT an out. It is just like hitting the fence and then catching it. (I had it happen to me in a game)
Hope this helps

Discussion: For SSUSA staff

Hey staff
Where can I find the rating chart? (the one that tells you what age/rating equals which age/rating.)
If I am correct, a 55 major = a 50 AAA player
I had the chart earlier, but I can not find it right now.
Thanks in advance

Discussion: Using screen for pitcher

Before some other rules.
Make sure your pitchers know that using the screen will lessen your skill when you play tournament ball. You get in a bad habit of moving to the left to get behind the screen.. FYI

Other rules we use
* If it hits the screen on the 3rd strike it is an out (This keeps players from just hitting the middle until they get a hit)
*If thrown making a play to home and hits the screen, if player is past the commitment line, he scores, if he hasn't gotten to the line yet, he goes back to 3rd
*It is mandatory in our league
* Pitchers can field the ball on the side of the screen ( I don't because I'm worries about it hitting the side and then hitting me)
Just my 2 cents worth.
