Steve it will be unusual not to see you at tournaments this year since your team folded. Always good to see you and talk with you. I knew that this tournament always helped sponsor your team so hope that you can work out something.

Discussion: Rosters

I was just wondering why rosters are so secret in the ussa and why they should not be open for all to be able to log on and see? Is it to keep everyone in the dark when it comes to tournaments and what players are on that team that is entered or is it to keep the protest down on players that should not be playing. I would think that would keep a lot of gripping down and keep teams from loading up and picking up players.

Discussion: Tattoo Nx3 softballs

Would like more information on the new ball is this ball like the ones we hit in the 70s that the nsa used that were orange and a lime green rubber coated? If so the ball would go oblong if you didn't hit it square and was a nighmare on the infield because it bounced so much and could not really get a true bounce. Just wondering if some one has used the ball other than hitting practice?

To All what if we go back to the time that you had to earn your berth in order to go to the nationals and had to come in at least 4th place in order to get a berth. You had certain tournaments you had to attend and if you didn't you could not go. Also there were no subs added to the roster. This would help weed out problems but the companies would not have 500 teams to make all the money from but have a lot less problems. The companies could certainly class all the teams a lot better as they would not have a problem with roster and able to see all the players that will be in each division.

TheCat43 thank you for your answer but we all have thoughts on this and we will all have to do what SSUSA sets as rules if we want to play in the nationals. But you probably see more teams if you were allowed to only pick up 2 or 3 players. Our team used to go to vegas almost every year until they allowed so many pick ups and it was just not worth spending thousands of dollars and compete with a few loaded teams and we would not drop players.

Crusher as you posted the rule then a team can cut players or say that they are unable to attend and then add back to the 12-13 so like Turbo 34 said you can buy a championship and the other teams have to not go or just to like it if they don't or are not willing to cut there players so they can load a team. I know that in the 70s that wasn't a problem because they all would load up teams but then they were paid money to play but most teams now are mostly uniforms and tourney fees not room and flights and eat money. I would just like a level playing field when you go to a tournament and pay the money that is required in order to attend and the one that puts up the money a legit chance for his team to win without loaded teams.

Let me understand your last post TheCat43 you agree that a team should be able to hand pick a new team almost to go to the nationals and put other teams that have there own players that have to compete against this hand picked team. The rule says they can be of the same class and or older and a class above if I understand what everyone is saying. So how is that fair to the other teams, what are they suppose to do completely change there team in order to compete or just not go to the nationals? I just don't see any way to get around this problem without limitations on the pick ups as stated above.

Hope that SSUAS will finally pick-up on what teams and players are saying about picking up so many players and will limit it to the 2 players.

This all goes back to the fact that as long as SSUSA allows teams to pickup over 2 players this will never be a fair playing field no matter what division you play in.

I agree in part to what TheCat43 is saying but to be able to pick-up 5 to 6 players that is not right we are a small area and have to get players from 3 states to fill our roster and the main reason that we have not gone to vegas is the fact that you can pick-up that many players and to me that is stacking a team when you go and hand pick your replacements. Therefore I still think that 2 pick-ups from the next age group and lower rating than the team picking them up will keep the teams more even. Everyone knows that there a very good players that are around at the next age group the only problem would be at AA where you could only pick-up a player at next age but same skill level.

I think this rule is good for the major and major plus as it defines the rule a little better but I think that there should still be something done about allowing a team to pick up more than 2 players in order to play. This creates like someone said before a disadvantage for other teams that don't load up for the nationals and bring what they played with all year. I know that everyone wants to play vegas but if you have to pickup players it should have a limit and the player should be from the next age group and the next lower rating other than the major plus. They should just put them on there own fields and open it up like they used to play in the 70s and pay the umpires more money as there games last longer that way there cant be any complaints about homeruns pitcher should be safer and a lot more fun for them.

Just learned that the problem has been corrected but should of not happened anyway. Are the players not rated, so how hard is it for the tournament director to check the rosters to verify the legit of a team. I was under the assumption that all players were in a rating system that ssusa had started to make sure that teams were classed for a better association and better competition.

I know that ssusa tries to keep most teams in the right class most of the time and probably more than most. But how does a team win Dalton change there name and compete with 13 players from the 2014 champions in the same class they won in 2014

Discussion: ratings

titanhd the reason we didn't play was because the previous team came in 2nd in Dalton and then they left to play on other teams. At that time the team folded and came back 2 years later with all new players basically that had been playing AAA. So when we could not get rated in ussa there was no reason to waste 1,000s of dollars playing vegas and other tournaments in the ussa.
