Discussion: Grading the Rule Changes

Someone please explain the rule change for AAA. Played 50AAA in Phoenix in 2010 & 11. It was 3 home runs then an out at that time. What has this new rule changed? Just like some clarification. Appreciate someone clearing it up for me.
PS one and one doesn't save any time. My 2cents.

Discussion: Offennsive Interference

Missouridave, you are totally right. Runner has to get out of the way. Been that way in SSUSA for a long time. There is no ifs/ands/ or buts about it. Hard to believe some comments about this. Read the rules guys. Men want to go home in one piece after a game.
CaptKirk, see what you started? lmao. See you in Feb. at our annual EarlyBird. Good luck all.

Capt Kirk. Read sec 8.2 Batter-Runner is out. Ball does not have to be thrown. Too bad your umpires don't make the call. It happens quite often and doesn't get the proper call. Good luck

Discussion: When is the last time you saw a pitcher have to leave a game from getting hit or get seriously hurt?

Houston, Tx. Feb this year. Pitcher from Relentless 50AAA team. Hit in the left arm, suffered a broken arm. Have seen others. Hard to believe, you haven't seen something like this or something that has put a pitcher out since 1979. Has happened to me at least twice in 8 years. Has happened to others I have seen during this time span. No gear would have prevented pitcher from Relentless. Must be others out there also. Just my 2 cents.

Discussion: Baytown tournament 2/25/12

We'd like to thank the 23 teams that played in Baytown this past weekend. Your participation made it another great time. We did try a new format to see how it would go, since there were so many teams involved and especially with out of town teams. We weren't sure how it would go and didn't want to keep teams til real late. We hope everyone enjoyed the EarlyBird and will advise when another will be held. Along the way, I might be helping others run their tournament,ie putting out the info for them, so if you have a weekend open and someone is running one, hope you will play and enjoy a great time of softball. Again, thanks to all.

Discussion: Houston tournament

Our scheduled tournament for Feb. 18th at Baytown has been cancelled due to the weather. We have changed the tournament to Feb. 25, still in Baytown. Just a week later. Please advise Jim Tharp or myself if you intend to attend on the 25th or not. We understand changing might affect some teams and we will need to make new brackets. We were set with 26 teams and hope all of you can still make it on the 25th. Thanks for understanding. GT

Army, Ist Inf Div. 1/28th 11B. Salio2k, my base camp was Quan Loi, but never spent much time there. Tet-68 was happening. Never thought I'd run across any one else who had ever heard of Quan Loi. Glad you and all the rest made it back.

Discussion: Balls

The ball they used in Phoenix is the same ball we have hit in Houston and Austin all year long. Weather was over a 100 most times in Texas. Absolutely, nothing wrong with the ball used in Phoenix this weekend in the 50AAA division. It carried well in every game. Just my 2 cents worth. GT

mad dog. I did not count teams I knew were no longer playing. Don't know much about ElPaso, only a few that I know are playing. So that area might have duplicates, but not sure.
Two teams in Lubbock, Brandon & Clark, and M3Tile, I don't know for sure. Frank Smith Toyota, Adidas and Kaos are no longer teams. So, the number of 50's teams in Texas is a good guess at best. I would think SSUSA would know for sure how many are really playing. Out of the 21 the real number probably is between 12 to 15. Not bad, but helps there are at least 3 from La. that play with us at times. Would be nice to have more 60-65-70 & 75 year old teams. The other bad point for 50's is so many work and only have so much vacation time. Have to save some for Phoenix and any other tournament one would travel to. Its the same for 55 and 60's also. But, heck, we get to play and enjoy ourselves. Thats what its all about.

Discussion: Prayers for Ewald Schadt

Please say a prayer for Ewald and his family. Ewald has had ALS for a few years. He is being sedated but the prognosis is not good. I know many guys around the country know Ewald and what a super player and person he is and many of you know his wife, Denise. Personally, I have not met two nicer people in my life. I will update this message when we have more info. Its a very sad time for us. God Bless All.

mad dog. I counted a total of approx. 66 tourney teams, all age brackets, in Texas.
50--21
55--9
60--16
65--9
70--7
75--1
80--3
According to the ratings. 10 of these teams are in the ElPaso area, so we rarely see them at any Houston or Austin tournaments. We do draw teams from Louisianna, which helps to play different teams. Big state, but really not that teams. Those states that have a large organization are lucky. Its a long ways to travel in state and gets expensive for teams that are self-sponsored. The heat and humidity have an affect on tourneys also. Low team turnout,means not much rest between games. As we all know, we've play 4 games in a row in this weather lately. Just a little info.
