Discussion: Batting Practice at Golden Egle

Dave, some of the hotels give you a "free drink coupon" just for staying there. I'm rather surprised, as much as you probably travel, that you have not run into this. 1st drink on the house. Cheers.

Topic: Teams looking for players
Discussion: Start-up Team

Not sure you have a choice in this matter. As far as I know, all new teams start at the AAA level. After several tournaments, a review will be conducted. If you won all 3 tournaments, playing other AAA teams, and by a margin of 5+ runs, you may be moved up. If the reverse happens, you may be moved down.I suppose you could ask to be placed in Major or Major+ from the outset, especially if you have players rated as such. But most new teams start at the AAA level.

Thanks for the quick update.
We're in session 2. I'm guessing the end of the week. Keeps me from checking the board every hour.

Discussion: reclass

You would have to petition the SSUSA home office. As a general rule, the classification of the last team that you played with will be your personal classification for 2 years. Please realize that if you do not play for those 2 years, the classification will still hold past that particular date.
Also, you can play 1 classification down in the same age group if you are 1 of 3 players in that upper classification. For instance, a 60 AAA team can have 3 major rated players on their roster. The home office is very strict on personal reclassification. Unless you have some extenuating circumstances, you have almost no chance. The other option is to get a medical waiver. Good luck

Haven't stayed at Charlie's or Boulder Station. Stayed at Eastside Cannery and Sam's Town several times each. Both are very good. Rather prefer Sam's because of the large open "canyon area with the waterfall". The light and fountain shows at that same location are an added plus.

Discussion: REPAIRING BROKEN BATS

I tried repairing 2 Big Cats with marine epoxy resin. Cracked alongside the repair spot in the next round of batting practice. So, fennellwig is right, in my experience it can't be repaired.

Discussion: RECLASSIFYING A TEAM/AND OR PLAYERS

I think swing is correct for this discussion. For sake of illustration , if you are a player that has played on a Major Plus rated team, you carry that personal rating with you for 2 years. If you do not play in a SSUSA tournament during that time, you could still be rated Major Plus beyond that time period. If you play Major during that time period, you will be rated Major beginning anew the following season. The only way to get rerated during this time period, is to get a medical exemption. As a team, SSUSA usually gives you 3 tournaments. The results will determine your correct classification. If you lost most of your games by 5 runs or more, to teams in your same classification, you "might" have a chance of being rerated.

Discussion: New age eligibilty rules for 75s and 80s - Reactions?

As a means of clarification, it looks as if teams in these age groups are limited to 7 younger players, ie. 7, 73 and 74 players for a 75 team. Can it be a mix of these ages? For instance, 6 73's and 1 74? What about player ratings? Could a Major plus 70 player, join a 75 AAA team?

Discussion: Miken Ultra II vs Dudley Lightning

I have both. The performance of both is very similar. I have the smaller barrel Dudley. I do find the sweet spot is a little smaller with this model Dudley as compared with the Cat. The larger 13 Dudley could be another story. I take batting practice with the Dudley, but use the Cat in the game. Can't tell you at this time would be more durable. I went through 2 2015 " Cats" last year. Bats to me are just a cost of doing business. Some of us spend about 10 grand, or so, a year on tournaments, so $400 on 2 bats a year is a small part of the equation.

Discussion: Ratings

The rating of any one, or more, particular teams can be changed at any time. There are automatic rating periods in December and June. However, when circumstances dictate, a change in rating can occur at any time. When we won our third straight in April of last year, we were automatically bumped to 70 major plus for Reno. Well ahead of the June rating period.

Discussion: Reno

Hey Greg, Hope you guys are doing well. Most of the teams in Major or Major Plus that I have talked with here have full rosters. The team that I played with in the ISSA TOC, don't quite have enough 70s guys to make a really good team. They are contemplating going to Vegas as a 65 team. Looking forward to seeing you guys again. Best regards, Ron

Yes, I saw that on the tournaments page. I played for Legacy last year. But after moving from Kansas to Florida, my understanding is that I must now play with a + team east of the Mississippi. Just checking to see about some last minute changes.

Any 70 Major Plus teams east of the Mississippi need a player for Reno? Or a 70s Major team bordering Florida?

Discussion: 2016 melee

It is also important to see where the added weight is added to the bats. In the past, the added weight was added to the handle. I would think that the added weights were not added to the end loads, which are fairly standard. For instance, I have a Big Cat and I believe the end load is 1 oz. for all weights. Therefore, the extra weight would have to be added at another point on the bat. If that is the case,then the lightest weight would actually be the most endloaded.

Discussion: Bats

There is bit of a difference between this years Big Cat and the previous 2 years. This years apparently breaks in much slower. Mine has over 200 hits and it is still behind the previous years. Out of the wrapper it was a log, so you will be disappointed at first. Mine has just started to come around. The next 100 hits or so will tell the story. The '14 and '15 were two of the best recent bats ever made. I just hope they didn't screw up the performance for a bit of endurance, like they did with the ill fated Red endload about 4 years ago.
