Dave, had we NOT had to spot runs for A team playing in a division they didn't belong in SINCE THEY HAD THEIR OWN, this would have changed our whole tournament! We lost to them in our second game by 1, which would have made us 1-1 instead of 2-0 and we would have had a different position in the bracket play....We won our first bracket game, then played Vegas Strong and lost by one 1 run...no spot we win by 4....then we played them again later and lost again by 1, win by 4 if no spot...again would have made us 2-0 in bracket play and in a totally different position with a buy and a break...instead we had to play again for a 4th game in a row with no break. YES I agree, you get in the losers bracket you have to play a lot of games the next day....THE NEXT DAY...but, they had their OWN DIVISION to play in and they never should have been moved!!! We play in uneven divisions all the time with one number of teams in one and a lower number or higher number of team in another....

Rule 13.3(2) MINIMUM NUMBER OF TEAMS:

A MINIMUM NUMBER OF 3 TEAMS MUST PARTICIPATE IN EACH AGE GROUP. IF ANY AGE GROUP HAS LESS THAN 3 TEAMS...LESS THAN 3 TEAMS....LESS THAN 3 TIMES!!!!!! (WHICH THEY DID NOT) THEY MAY PLAY IN A YOUNGER AGE CATEGORY.

I have no problem with them moving down if they are moved for competitive balance, (that's what I was told why they were moved down because they were too good to play in the 55's) then fine...no problem...but they should play at our rules if they move down! Whenever a Major team plays a AAA team in a tourney we always have to play down to their 3 HR rule and spot them runs, so if a 55 team plays in our division BECAUSE THEY DO NOT HAVE 3 TEAMS AND A DIVISION TO PLAY IN....then of course we would have to spot them runs because they had no division to play in....BUT, THEY HAD THEIR OWN DIVISION...so they should play our rules...SIMPLE AS THAT. And you know as well as I do that a 55 team is not much different than a 50's team especially swinging senior bats! Something needs to change in the rule book, because it changed our entire tourney position in bracket play! Qualifiers should be played by the rules and teams not moved to "balance out the divisions" if there is enough teams in their own division for them to play in!!! WHY HAVE RULES IF THEY ARE GOING TO BE IGNORED!!!

Someone from senior softball explain to me and show me in the rulebook where a 55 major team who has their own division of there of at least 5 teams...Play in a 50 major division where we have to spot them runs we beat Vegas strong both games by four runs if we donít have to spot them and us being at 50 team and they want to play in the 50 division then they should play 50 rules that is total BS and we ended up playing 6 STRAIGHT games in that 90+ degree heat!!!! WITHOUT ONE BREAK and one of my guys ended up in the hospital last night because of heat exhaustion cramping and near kidney failure that is the worst run tournament I have ever seen! If a 55 team wants to play in a 50 division then we shouldnít HAVE TO SPOT RUNS. We beat Vegas strong both games by four runs if we donít have to spot them... if I was on Vegas strong and there was a 55 major division and we were told we are playing in the 50 division and had to be spot runs I would be embarrassed to be on that team! Something really needs to be looked into when 50s teams are playing six straight freaking softball games!

Discussion: THANKS FOR A WELL RUN TOURNEY DAVE AND THE SSUSA STAFF AT SUNSET PARK

Dave and the rest of the staff...just wanted to say thanks for a very well run and mostly on time tourney this past weekend at Sunset Park for the 50/55/40's guys. We really enjoyed the camaraderie and sportsmanship of the guys we played against...all good guys on Stadium, CGA, Juiced up and Mancave out of Texas...never met a Texas team that were not great guys and sports! The umpiring crew was one of the best, if not the best I have seen, they hustled to make calls and were very consistent with their ball/strike calls. Again, fantastic job to all who worked the Sunset Park Tourney! And, congrats to all the winners!
