|Just played tourney w/ 1-1 count|
This past weekend I played in the rec. tourney in Tucson. Some new speed up rules were applied and games were 55 mins. All the games I played in went 7 innings.
We used the 1-1 count but with no courtesy foul. Lots of foul ball 3rd strike outs. Didn't appear to be a lot of happy campers. It didn't affect me but I prefer the courtesy.
The umps also hustled players in and out and no warm-ups between innings. For the most part guys hustled in and out and the between inning stop and BS sessions were eliminated. You BS'd on the move.
Runners were also being put in quickly usually before on deck batter was in box.
I must state this was my first SSUSA tourney since march of 2012. I enjoyed it lots of fun and met some great guys. I went with a 55AAA team and we played 60 major, 50AAA straight up no equalizer.
I loved it ask for nothing and just play.
