SS-US: Just what data has been collected in order to help SS-USA move teams up?
1) How many games were won in the Open inning?
2) How many times did the home team not have to bat?
3) How many times did the home team need 1 or 2 runs in order to win the game?
4) In the course of last year, how many teams in AA, AAA, or Majors score 30 runs or more?
5) How many of the AA, AAA, or Major teams scored 30 runs 2, 3, or 4 times?
6) How many AA, AAA, or Major teams scored 40 runs?
Any team that score 30 runs or aveages 20 runs a game; or score over 30 runs a few times during the year, should be moved up.
Does SS-USA, keep stats on how many time a team does not have to bat in the open inning? How many times the winning tem had to score only 1 or 2 runs in the bottom of the open inning?

Good luck with your task. Will anything be done to teams that fold or quit, because their team was moved up?

Taaking a quick look at the ratings. I noticed in the 50's there are 4 teams rated in 09. I do not know what they were before. There are also 4 teams not rated since 2004 and another couple not since '05
In the 55's one in 2009 so far, 4 not since 2004 and another sonce 2005.
In the 60's one team wasn't around in 07 as shown, another 3 rated in '04 and 1 in 05 did not notice and rated in '09 last looked at were 65's and saw 1 for '09, 3 for back in '04 and another 3 for'05 .
In all those, there were some others done back in 06.
So why no updatted ratings since 2004 on these? Team no longer exists, disbanded, name change?
It might be nice to have the year rated, color coded. Maybe even level, AA, 3A, M, M+

TAITS: Scott, start your own THREAD, please. But, I have been monitoring the 50, 55, 60, & 65 age group ratings.
So far, a few changes:
1)50 M.Plus; were 16 & now 17 teams
2)50 Majors; were 45 & now 47 teams
This thread is to see if, SS-USA will inform teams on how SS-USA went about their rating process.
Scott, if, you start your own thread, I can inform the board members the number of teams that did get moved to AAA, Major, & Major Plus. THANKS

THJ while your six suggestions on how to move a team up would be something to use I will bet the only real data used is the amount of homeruns a team hits and who is on their rosters.
