Discussion: Cancellation of Tournaments due to weather


Winning Nashville qualifies us to play in the World Championship in Vegas.
We have one, possibly two more SSUSA Tournaments on our schedule. SSUSA doesnít have many tournaments where our players are from ( NW Florida, Alabama and Georgia ). Playing Vegas is a big deal for us.

Discussion: Cancellation of Tournaments due to weather

Surprised nobody has mentioned the joke of a tournament in Nashville. The10 day forecast called for freezing weather and it was exactly right. They moved our 8am Saturday game to 11am and moved us 30 miles to another complex. We showed up for our 11am game and weíre advised weíd play at 2pm. We were told weíd play two 40 minute or 5 inning games whichever came first. Showed up Sunday to play 2 out of 3, it was 30 degrees and the fields were in horrible condition. Both the 65M and 70M finalist teams chose not to play because of the conditions. Since this is one of the only Vegas Qualifiers in our area we needed to play this event in order to qualify. Tournament was just a disaster.

Discussion: 2023 TOC

If the two TOCís were scheduled a week apart itís unlikely many teams could afford to attend both. Imagine this head to head TOC conflict isnít over.

ISSA TOC has 172 teams entered.
Going to interesting to see how many the SSUSA TOC draws.

Hopefully both are successful.

Two Senior Softball Heavyweight organizations going at it.

BTW, donít these organizations have long term contracts with cities including dates?

Discussion: You make the call:

Lead off hitter bats.
Instead of 2nd batter batting the third batter comes to the plate and takes one pitch, itís a strike..
The coach tells the 3rd batter heís batting out of order and the 2nd batter comes to the plate to bat.

The umpire, who is usually correct on calls, says there is no out and the 2nd batter assumes the 3rd batters count of 1 strike.

Some thought the 3rd batter was out for batting out of order.

So whatís the correct call?

Discussion: You make the call.

Playing SPA, 11 defensive players. Visiting coach puts 10 on lineup card but plays 11 in the field. We donít catch it the first time through the order but we do on the second. When the batter not in the lineup come to the plate we protest heís not in the official lineup. BTW we did not throw a pitch to him we just protested him not being in the lineup.

He was called out, placed back in the lineup and allowed to play the field remainder of the game.

So whatís the correct call.

Topic: Bats
Discussion: Enough Said

I have one with around 75 swings on it. There is no webbing yet. Hoping it comes alive soon. IMO the bat is nowhere near as good as advertised. Iíve been to three tournaments in the SE and have seen one Enough Said being used. One of my league teammates has one thats really webbing and his bat is hot but no better than some Adidas or Suncoast.

Discussion: You make the call

Looking for answer using SPA rules.

Runner on 3rd. Ground ball hit to third baseman. Third baseman chases runner past the commitment line and tags him out. After he tags the runner he throws it to the catcher standing on home plate. Umpire calls runner safe and dead ball. Umpire says tag was illegal thus a dead ball.

Do you agree or disagree. Where in the SPA rule book can I find your answer?

Discussion: New to Pensacola

Welcome to Pensacola.

There are quite a few 50 teams in this area, 2 in Pensacola/Fort Walton and many in Alabama and Georgia. We have a group of seniors of all ages that hit at Exchange Park on Tuesday and Thursdays at 9:00am. You can come out take some BP and meet some folks. This is a good way to get seen and get your name out.

Good luck

Discussion: Ridge Hooks Passing

When I started playing Senior Softball 17 years ago SPA was the best game in the Southeast. The SPA National Championships in Plano and later in Dalton were great events. No matter how busy Ridge was he always took time to have a chat. Heíll be missed by many.

He definitely loved God, his family, his country and softball.

RIP our dear friend

Discussion: 60 player looking for team

Mike King, king44, is a monster. Heís a high average hitter with real power.

If you want to add some serious offense to your team, a guy that runs for himself, a good defensive player and a great teammate give this guy a look.

Discussion: Looking for team near St.Louis

Dan played with our Seasoned Vets team last year. We were a competitive 60AAA team playing tournaments in Florida, Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina.

Dan can just flat out hit it. A lefty with HR power, he is a legitimate .700 + hitter that can run. He batted 3rd in our lineup and carried us many times. He can really pick it on 1B. Even though heís a lefty we moved him to other infield positions at times.

Dan is an athlete, a great teammate, a leader and a really good person.

Dan is a Player that can play at any level.

I know youíll find a team brother, keep doing what you do.

Discussion: Moving to Mobile AL area looking for a team

To my knowledge there is no Senior Softball in Mobile even though there are a lot of good players.

In Pensacola, approximately an hour from a Mobile, we have:

Tuesday night double hitter league. Very competitive 5 hr and a single. There are guys from Mobile in our league.

Saturday league. Not quite as competitive as Tuesday. I think itís 3 hr and a single. Double hitter every 3rd week.

Tuesday and Thursday morning BP and pickup game. . BP starts at 9:00 games start at 10:00.

There are two 50ís tournament teams here. One 50AAA and one 50M. Thereís also a number of 50 yr olds that play on other tournament teams not based out of Pensacola.

Come see us.
