Vegas "World Masters" part 2
I would like to congratulate the South Florida Heat on their win in the 50 AAA division this weekend. They are powerful team that hits with power all thru their lineup. I stopped counting at 20 over the fence in the championship game. I have 1 issue with how the LVSSA handled having a Major ranked team in the AAA division. I have no issue playing a Major team but why could they not use the same rule as SSUSA has (13.3(8)-E ) that states "Recommended equalizers for teams in mixed skill and/or age groups: The weaker, or older, team gets a choice of adding 5 runs to their score OR using an extra defensive player." The LVSSA takes alot of heat on this website for not keeping the integrity of the game. I understand why the team was allowed in the AAA division AFTER being reranked in late august by SSUSA. The LVSSA had their Major division play Aug 28-30. The 5 run equalizer would or could have created a different outcome because the S. Florida team won their 1st 2 games of the tournment by 1 run! Enough said about that. A question for all of you that understand the rules; is the "FLIP / FLOP" rule different in each assossiations?. SSUSA states that it can only be used in the 6th inning of a game . This weekend, the umpire asked the coaches in the bottom of the 4th inning, with 2 outs; if we would agree to the Flip/Flop rule because they were running late. it seemed like a strange time to asked the coaches to do this.
