Discussion: Back Foot in Front of the Mat

(NV and BLD) Why not use chalk to make the box the correct size on the turf Complexes? Chalk rinses away with water when we're (SSUSA) finished. No permanent harm to the turf.

Topic: Bats
Discussion: Bat standards


A bat that does not pass Compession test does not mean you're "swinging dirty" and or that the bat is altered. I grant the fact that Shaving is an issue and I don't know the answer but,Compression testing isn't it.

Most broken in well used Senior bats will fail compression.There is no way to "break a bat in,"get to a certain Compression point stop and the bat will stay at that Compression.With every swing we're "altering compression". Rules are Rules but, what we are being told is to not "break in" your bat(s).In the eyes of SSUSA Doing so is "alterting" and making the bats illegal use. Bats being confiscated because they fail Compression is a long line of Players bats.

Again . I don't know the answer and Kudos to SSUSA for addressing the problem but the solution and the Standard is not Bat Compression Testing.

Discussion: Batting Box rule change Left handed player called out correctly, entirely within the box

Is this batters Box rule only an SSUSA rule or does it apply to all other associations as well?

Tim ?? Please clarify rule on "50 Plat Results"

Teams must play in the tournament championship game to earn and receive awards, including any berth to the Tournament of Champions or other invitational game or event. If a team
declines to play, it will be assessed a forfeit loss and will not be declared a champion.

Scott Harder. I agree. The ball should have to hit any white portion of the plate. Contrary to popular belief the Black frame outline is not considered part of the Plate nor part of it's measurement.

Turning 2,I agree with you to the pint that it is a bad rule.The intent of the 1-1 count was to speed up the game. The real fix is to get rid of the extra foul.

Discussion: New rule on shaved bats

Player asked to leave a team because he swings altered (shaved) bats. Always Has. Player moved to and now plays on your team and still swings "skinny". You pat him on the back and high five each time he hits it 400 cause you need the runs.POSTER. You may not want to NARC and you may not be responsible for what he swings but,Don't post what you won't allow and the consequences if you find out when You Have to KNOW! Can't be missed. C'MON MAN!!!

JohnO28. You made the statement in a contained thread. .
"NOBODY plays for more than 2 teams in a season."

When did this become a rule?

Discussion: Eastern Nationals

I would guess because 50M and 55M have the same index rating (8)they were slotted together.
Conversely 55M+ & 55M do not. Nor do 50M+ and 50M. Equalizer would still apply in those senarios as well..Perhaps SSUSA is allowing both 50M and 55M #1 seeds out of this Bracket ??? Equalizer still would apply however.

Discussion: Baden Senior Softball

I agree with both ROB^$ and John0208. Espically when the spec of the ball isn't what is called out as well. 400 core USSSA Classic M ball is used at Michigan events and the Baden ball has never been used by this Director

Baden is the "Offical Ball" Is it safe to say that Tourney Directors can use ANY ball ,Brand or spec(core) they choose if Tourney not "Managed" by SSUSA-Qualifiers included ???

Justbats is way overpriced.

I've gotten some really nice deals on EBAY.

The best online store that I found is SMASH-IT Sports.

Discussion: SSUSSA classification

I agree. Call the office.50M has a higher rating than 60M+. My opinion is that if you play on a 50 major team your Player rating would change to 50M

Question: So it doesn't make a difference who made the initial contact. Per Mike 14 HE made contact- not the batter.
