Ball Being Used in Reno?
Any idea which one? We have extra ISA Rocks 44/400 from Vegas and St. George.

Thanks

Unless the little yellow VW bug from the BSN circus rolls in and pulls a rabbit out of the trunk with 36± cases of our microcell technology official ball, it's likely going to be from the Worth product line ... It won't be the same ball we used in the Southwest Championships because there weren't enough available to cover those two 200+ team events ...

Here is the Worth ball used in a SSUSA turny 5 weeks ago that I played in. Not saying this is the default Worth ball for all, just sharing info.

Thanks for both replies. I just read the 1 review on the ball from last month. It is what it is at this point.

The Worth Super Gold Dot Pro M is a very good ball. It'll go!

The Worth ball used at the Brickyard was a piece of crap. Mamy guys switched to ASA bats as the balls used were intended for ASA bats. Using a senior bat was like hitting a pillow. There were HRs but the numbers were way down.

Not sure why SSUSA doesn't consider the Tattoo. FHC seems able to get 36 dozen or more every month without any problems.

We're using the Tattoo ball in Raleigh at the Atlantic Coast Championships beginning tomorrow (Tuesday) ...

That's great news Dave. The Tattoo is much more durable IMO.

Why not let teams furnish their own balls like the old days just as long as its 44/375 hit whatever you want

Yes, why not allow teams to bring their balls so as long as they are 44/375. I am sneaking in the Trump Stote Rocks with the red stitching. Lol!

Just read the most recent SSUSA newsletter and the article on Balls,Balls Balls. Understanding the read SSUSA doesn’t have much control starting with off shore manufacturing and supply chain issues so maybe it isn’t a bad idea for teams to bring their own balls for a few tournaments. It helps with existing supply and time factors. We all have 44/375 balls in our bags/garage. Let the umpires review and mark the balls before or during the games.

But NYGNY, possibly all 44/375 softballs are not equal in performance.

There's a very extensive and almost identical discussion thread from here that happened from 03/15-22/2022 regarding the Spring World's in Mesquite and St. George ... This one is nothing more than "deja vu all over again" on why we will not run the tournaments on a B.Y.O.B. basis ... A level playing field is maintained when everyone hits the same ball at a specific event ... Simple concept ... Not going to change ... Good luck!
