Discussion: Las Vegas - 60 AAA - National/American Pod

While I completely understand the "You Do" explanation AND the serpentine draft... What I don't understand is,, in the alphabet system "A" come before "N", so how is it that, the serpentine draft starts with the National Pod (first) ahead of the American Pod ?? Yes, I know, too much time on my hands....

Discussion: results from session 1.

Thank you Stephanie. One question, will this be the final release? I ask because the only 60AAA bracket page shown is the "championship/finals" page, whereas the lead-up to brackets (National and American pods) are missing. TY again, great work.

Discussion: What do 12 and 6 foot arcs really look like?

Thanks Bruce. As a 6'-0" pitcher myself, it's easy to achieve the 6 ft arc (most anything above my head). But the perception from a batter perspective is, that from 60 ft, the pitch is a "fast pitch" meeting the 6ft height threshold . There is no way to achieve the "same pace" with the given 6ft vs 12ft (arc) geometry. In lies the big debate. Thanks again for the video, and good luck in LV.

Discussion: Curious

When using a "pod" system for bracket play: (a) What determines which team is assigned which pod? And (b) Once placed in a "pod" is there any crossover between "pods", be it in the championship bracket or the elimination bracket? TY

The primary reason for the question is, "it's always fun to play different teams"....

Thanks D... Love the new approach to team listings and tentative field assignments, by session, prior to posting on the actual tournament page. Clean, informative, easily referenced. Bravo..

How many players can be used from an existing team to build a new team?

Dbax, you must admit though, got you you to read it, instead of glossing over it.

Discussion: Rule Change?

VegasBob... Are you implying (example) that 50 or 55 yr olds are being "allowed" to play in the 60 division? Likewise, 60 yr olds, playing in the 65 division?

Discussion: Qualifier vs Rec Tourneys

Other than the statement made in the header of the Rec Tourney Listing, which is, "These tournaments are sanctioned by SSUSA. They are NOT qualifiers. SSUSA roster restrictions do not apply", what is the clear differences between the two? (1)What does "sanctioned" actually mean? (2)Are the Rec Tourneys recorded/tracked in a teams' database? (3)How does (can) a Rec Tourney "graduate" to a qualifier?

Discussion: The Proton Top Gun Tune-Up

This appears to address the 65 and up divisions.

Will the two day format also apply to the 50 thru 60's?

And when will a decision be made and reflected on tournament page?

Add to the discussion, that Major+ teams generally carry their full complement of players (full roster) with no weak links and "show up" fully loaded.

Discussion: Team Names and Rating

D.. Since you brought it up, it appears a team can "ping-pong" back and forth between age categories, I see (get) that. But, do they have to pay a team registration fee for each age category?

Secondly, I noticed that on the ratings listing (page) that the team example you used, has disappeared (60 vs 55), whereas some teams are listed and shown in both age categories. I'm a bit confused.

Lastly, what becomes of the team history (tracking) with this back-n-forth movement? Is it combined or segregated by age?

Discussion: 5gg spring championships

Need help.. Based on above "will be out at 0-2" statement, referring specifically to the 6 team configuration, ZERO teams will be eliminated?

I asked, because using the Bullhead, Jan 20-21, Men's 50/55+ Platinum Division 6 Teams, as an example, does not the loser of game 5 (if loser of game 1 is the same) AND/OR the loser of game 6 (if loser of game 2 is the same), get eliminated after 2 games and go home? TIA

D, did I read correctly in your last statement, that the end of the ratings' adjustments are not yet complete, and that additional re-rates will be forthcoming this week?

TY, for the well detailed response. Much appreciated.

The better response given, is that, to the color gray.... lol Thanks again.

Discussion: TOC WINNERS

D, since your mentioned "body of work", is every team reviewed at end of year for this "body of work" criteria? And if so, is there a weighting system (i.e. 1st, 2nd, 3rd place finishes vs. the number of teams entered)?

Why, you ask? .... I HATE the color, GRAY !! And yet, if GRAY is a warranted color, I can somewhat live with it, as long as it is consistent across the board....

Discussion: seeding games

At the TOC, 65+ AA, team Electrifiers (TX), did not play in round robin on Friday.

How is it that they were awarded a WIN, in the first bracket game and not placed in the elimination bracket immediately, as stated above {Rule 15.5}?

I'm really confused....
