Discussion: courtesy runner

Going to take a shot at this one. Timeout had been called so he should have been able to go back to the bag with no out recorded? Why would he be called out maybe he fixed a shoe? LOL

Why not charge a little more per team and give it to them so we can play there?

Discussion: ball tipped over fence with no bome runs left, bases loaded, playing rules were walks after no HR Left. what should happen.

Wouldn't this have been safe to have all runners run the bases till the umpire said stop?

B.J.-ASA Rules are not the same as SSUSA. Just take a look at the international tie breaker and ASA says the man starting at second base can be anyone and SSUSA says it has to be the last batter "NO QUESTIONS".

Discussion: Major plus problem

Webbie, how would you like to play in the Northeast where there are a total of less than 20 teams of all age brackets playing tournaments. There is maybe one team in the M+ bracket in the whole Northeast. So, even playing M is a disadvantage here because trying to field a team of say 60 year olds is even a problem. We just got moved up to 60M after the greatest weekend we had finishing second at the Worlds and now are having trouble finding 60 year old guys to fill in the spots vacated by some of our teammates. Due to injury and just age have stopped playing. We just don't have the inventory of players that other areas of the country have at their disposal. We have never shied away from playing anyone at any level but if you can't compete you can't compete. Good luck this year on the field and hope your health issues are behind you.

Discussion: SPA v SSUSA

How about the rule that a Major team can have up to 3 Major+ players on their roster. Teams in the Northeast area MASS, NY, RI, NH, and ME are at a disadvantage because there aren't many Major+ teams in this area that are active if any at all. So when the teams try to play Major in the rest of the country they have trouble competing. When you look at the total number of teams playing tournaments in this area could be a total of maybe 17-20 teams in all age brackets in the whole Northeast area. Whereas on the West Coast and some other areas there are probably 17-20 teams in each age bracket? So, is that the same playing field?

Discussion: crossing commit line

The runner stopped just over the commit line with the third baseman running full steam and tried to go back. So he was stradling the commit line and the third baseman couldn't stop in time and ran into the runner then threw home to the plate but you're right because of the contact he was awarded the plate? I don't think that was fair to the third baseman at all with the runner trying to go back to third.

Discussion: crossing commit line

this happened to us in a tournament game and the third baseman was chasing the runner and he crossed the line and stopped with the third baseman running right into him. the umpire called interference on the third baseman and awarded the runner home late. How does that happen SSUSA?

First thing I can tell you is if you are registering as a new team you will be a AAA team and if you are all under 55 you will be a 50 AAA team.

Discussion: Automatic Move Ups

No Sir I was referring to my team and we got moved up to Major and I was actually looking for something from SSUSA to see if I could get that AA player back on his own teams roster instead of playing Major. We only picked him up for depth and he really didn't play that much and is a AA player? So can he go back to his AA team before playing any Major tournaments? That was my question?

Again not thinking this out. Team played AAA in the Worlds and finished second got moved up to Major. Can that player who was AA player go back to his AA team. sorry for the confusion.

what if your team was moved up after playing in the Worlds and there was a AA player playing with that team. Can he go back to his AA team now?

Discussion: commit line between third and home

with the new 70' bases the commitment line is now 30' from home plate. Once you cross that commitment line you can't come back. However, we had a play this year where the runner was being chased by the third baseman and after the runner crossed over the line he tried to go back and was run into by the third baseman and was awarded the plate for interference on the third baseman? They said once he goes over the line you can't tag him out so if the third baseman had thrown home to the catcher and tagged the plate he would have been called out. Only problem was the third baseman was running so fast he had no idea the runner would stop and trun back and ran right into him then threw home but it was too late cause he had already committed the interference? Smart runner but I still think he should have been called out for causing the interference by going back somewhere he can't go? This was also posted earlier this year?
