With recent post regarding session #1 field assignments, is it safe to assume (oh crap.....used the word assume) that session #2 will use the same field mix/locations? TIA

Discussion: Clarification - SPW St. Geo

In 55/60+ Platinum bracket play, game #14 indicates AOS advancing, even though the score did not reflect such. Is the score entered incorrectly or did the incorrect team advance?
BTW, great meeting the infamous D˛ @ St. Geo and putting a name and face together.

Discussion: Explanation please

Tim/Dave……Using the statement, “SSUSA tries to protect the teams at the next level down. Some of the system safeguards are in place to accomplish exactly that.” (I am sure SSUSA does).

But, could you explain how a roster of twelve 50 Major guys are "safeguarded" from twelve 55Major+ guys? Obviously, I am still needing an education....TY

BTW, thanks for the interesting narrative of closing loophole #1.

Discussion: 2021 SPRING WORLDS

In a previous thread somewhere, it was mentioned that session 3 had secured Little Valley fields in St. George. The main tournament page does not have those fields listed, so I am simply double checking if this is still the case and games will take place there. TY

D˛.. thanks for the detailed reply AND education.

Without question, numerous conversations have taken place regarding “balancing the scales”, and by your above provided example(s), Major+ stands out the most.

Therefore what wisdom can you shed on statement... All teams rated AA, AAA, and Major have an their own effective skill level ceiling, whereas a Major+ team, the skies-the-limit? Or is it?

Discussion: Tournament Structure

I need an education. Given a tournament size of 100+ teams, with varying age and skill categories, age clearly creates the first grouping, and then skill level(s) creates an additional split....Common Logic.

Now comes the education … When building the round robin/seeding, and then the brackets; is the first priority given to keeping teams within their same age group (even tough there may very well be four skill levels (AA thru M+) spanning the age group, thus equalizers)? Or is priority given to keeping teams at the same ratings index (even though there may a cross-over in two age groups)?

Discussion: Maintaining our team's rating

D˛ Since on the subject of ratings...Where can I find the (R/I) you eluded to in your response (i.e. 65AAA = 4, 55AA = 5, etc. etc)? Asked another way, what is a 55M players' rating? And a 60 AAA ? And is this scale linear?

Any rule/law, whether it be speeding, littering, texting, Covid, etc, are only as good as its enforcement. And when enforced (to stop it from reoccurring), it has to hurt !!

I am all for the continuance of any form of competitive softball and agree with all that has been posted. I am not completely familiar with any 40 division rules, but did I understand correctly that the 40 division players CAN use senior bats?

Absolutely agree with with Bruster, the Worth mask/helmet is my vote. Especially since I too wear glasses. Great choice.

D˛ & Tim... With those kinds of numbers, it certainly makes admin a "full-time" (and yes, subjective) job.
