Discussion: 4 Game or 5 Game Guarantee??

Nope, that didn't help...I know what 4 game and 5 game guarantee means.

In years past, all the TOC tournaments have been 5 game guarantees, but on the web page of the tournaments, it says 4 game guarantee. Curious if this is what SSUSA is going to??

Discussion: 4 Game or 5 Game Guarantee??

Hey there.....Looking at future tournaments I have noticed they say "4 Game Guarantee"

Are brackets changing from three game guarantee to double elimination style?

Thanks in advance!!

Discussion: Home plate issue

Since we are talking rules.... I have an umpires two man mechanics question...

Runners on 1st and 2nd, less than two outs. Base umpire starts by 2nd base and of course home plate umpire is behind home plate. Fly Ball is hit to center field, which umpire has the catch or drop of the fly ball and which umpire has the base runners tagging up?

Thanks in Advance.

Discussion: 3 Game Guarantee v.s Double Elimination Bracket

Just being "Devils Advocate" here.....

Has it been discussed recently? Kinda like how an 11th man was just added to the 65 age group? Apparently opinions can change.

1. It would change a little I think of when the "real" tournament begins because seedings would mean a little more.

2. Less total games does help SSUSA, I would agree with that.

3. With a win or loss in some of the 3GG formats you don't move forward, you just move up and/or down. To me that is an "exhibition " game.

Thanks for reading and sharing your thoughts.

Discussion: 3 Game Guarantee v.s Double Elimination Bracket

Has anybody ever thought of playing three seeding games and than making the tournaments strictly Double Elimination??

Teams would still be guaranteed 5 games.

Over the years with the three game guarantee brackets I have seen several games that just didn't matter and on some occasions it would benefit your team if you took a loss. For example, there was a time if we lost we would make it to Sunday, but if we won we still had another game to win to make it to Sunday.

Just thought I would bring this up and see what every ones thoughts might be.

Thanks in advance.

Discussion: An Old Mans Opinion - A Few Days After 50's Worlds

This is just one mans opinion, it might be shared by others, who knows. Iím not bashing anyone so please donít take it that way. Plenty of pros as well as some cons. A company doesnít get better if it doesnít hear back from its customers. Iím sure circumstances that Iím not aware of contributed to some of the cons, but if they could be fixed as the years go by, that would be awesome.

PROS:
Field 12 at Sunset Park (Played here the first day and early)
Arroyo Grande Fields (Nice fields, grass was smooth)
Most of the Umpires at Sunset Park (Good hustle and new the rules)
All the Umpires at Arroyo Grande (Championship Sunday, seems like the best umpires were here, thx)
The competition (Loved playing different teams, all but one team we played showed great sportsmanship)
The Fans (The group that followed 50 Degrees, WOW)
The Weather (Didnít get warm until Sunday)
Brackets being updated at the fields (Every field we went to the bracket was good to go)

CONS:
Field 14 at Sunset Park (The batters box late Saturday night was awful, a lot of players going thru it, I know)
Field 6 at Sunset Park (Gopher holes, not sure of a way to fix that)
An umpire at Sunset 6 (Hoping he was just having a bad game)
Playing at 8 a.m in the winners bracket on Sunday (I understand a ton of teams and all, but was hoping for a little more of a rest before having to start back up)
A $2 medal for second place (I know we play for the love of the game and all that stuff, but most wonít be wearing a meddle around town. A t-shirt on the other hand would have been nice)
Not dragging and watering the fields between games (Donít know if equipment, people and water was available)
Brackets not being updated on the online site (Not sure of what has to happen to get this corrected, but it seems that this is a complaint we see more often than not)

Some of the above might be ďWantsĒ and not ďNeedsĒ and with everything going on maybe itís not possible to be corrected, but a guy can dream canít he?

The tournament itself and memories made are priceless, thanks for putting it all together and looking forward to the upcoming season!!

They must be having technical difficulties seeing how the Red pod bracket information is up to date but the others are not. ?????

Hey Dave,

Funny thing is, the 6th game, (5th in a row) wasn't played on the final day. It was played on the first day. Talk about reliving your youth :)
