Discussion: Question for DD

For the Rock N Reno Challenge Cup 2024, I noticed that the 60's division is playing again on Memorial Day weekend. The 60's played last year on Memorial Day weekend, I thought the divisions were supposed to switch it up every year?

Discussion: Jim Sherman last weekend

Jimmy, I MOSTLY agree with your comments but with two exceptions. The outfield grass was high, ground balls immediately stopped in the outfield, making it really hard on the outfielders. I also thought a 7:30am game time on Sunday was completely unnecessary, could have easily started at 8am, which is usually the norm.
Field crew, facilities, concessions were all great.

Discussion: The new Senior Baden ball.

With ALL the issues that SSUSA had with balls this year and it was quite challenging for them obviously. I was pleased with the Baden Ball for World's. Having said that, it is not as good as the Stote, but it was way better than anything that we were supplied with in other tournaments this year by FAR! I will note also that I saw a lot of teams rotating new Baden balls into the game as it seemed they lost performance as the game went on.

Discussion: 11 defensive players 65+

I think a lot of players are misunderstanding the new rule. Your team is ALLOWED to have 11 players on defense it doesn't state you MUST have 11. You could continue to play 10 on defense if that's what you want, YOUR CHOICE.

Discussion: SSUSA and Bell Bank Park?

Dave, knowing SSUSA has to lock in ballparks well in advance of the tourney dates I was more referring to the 2023 schedule.
On a broader note, I would like to see cities that we go to year after year for tournaments i.e. Vegas and Reno make a more concerted effort to improve their playing facilities, with a few exceptions like Arroyo Grande and Golden Eagle. The other facilities in these cities have been lacking in upkeep and they're always the subject of numerous complaints every year.
I also would like to see SSUSA look to cities that haven't had tournaments played their in some time to see if we could go back to those cities as a way to change things up a bit. I would like to see qualifier tournaments in Salt Lake City, Boise, Albuquerque just to name a few.

Move the Southwest Championships from Vegas to the Mesa/Phoenix area, beautiful complex and many nice complexes near by!

Discussion: major plus

I know one change I would like to see. When a team is bumped to Major+ make it for one year instead of two. A lot of times when a team gets bumped they are on the verge of going up in age classification, or half of the team can go up in age and the other half can't leaving the "younger" players in limbo for the next year and the burden of finding a team that will pick them up and automatically be at the plus level due to the number of players to be picked up. I think making the plus tag apply for only one year would benefit a great number of players.

Discussion: World Championships in NV

Brotherhood, I highly doubt Vegas will go into another lockdown. I think the local officials will leave it up to the businesses to require masks indoors, that seems to be the prevailing trend nationwide. I also don't think that the virus infection rates warrant lockdowns, vaccine is available and herd immunity is growing everyday.

Discussion: batter interference

Grinder17: When a batter is in the batter box and a ball is pitched and the batter doesn't move and the pitched ball hits the batter on any part of his body that ball is called a ball without hitting the ground and its a dead ball.

Discussion: Southwest Tournament

If the different municipalities in Las Vegas are not going to make the effort to improve the playing facilities, I know going forward I am going to suggest to my team that we simply skip this tournament in the future. No need to go to Vegas twice, once a year for World's would be enough for us.

Discussion: C19 at Worlds.

SSUSA STAFF: Fantastic job running the World's! 132 teams, 4 complexes and probably over 2,500-3,000 people: players,wives,umps,staff and 3 cases. I think that's a phenomenal accomplishment.

Discussion: Saint George Temp Rising

Jon44, if the tourney were held in Sacramento like originally planned before Covid, the temps are nearly identical. Fri-107, Sat-108, Sun-106. Bonus is less humidity in St. George.

Mikelmart: You are NOT helping the situation at all with unsubstantiated rumors! Please for the sake of all the teams and people attending keep your rumors and sources to yourself and let SSUSA get the TRUTHFUL information out to everybody when and if needed.

Still going to be very warm in St. George too, close to 100 degrees. My vote and it is a biased one is bring it to Aurora, CO. 12 fields, ONE complex. Weather no where near the heat of Sacramento or St. George.

Harri, let's keep SSUSA in the non-political realm. With EVERYTHING else right now so politicized its nice to just go play the game we love without more drama!

interesting how I can get on an airplane next to 100 other people and fly for 2 plus hours but I can't be on a ball field for 1 hour with 10 other people while maintaining social distance.

Discussion: Oh Boy!

Joey525i, Since The adjective “Chinese” is particularly problematic as it associates the infection with an ethnicity. I guess then that CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC should have just kept calling it the "Wuhan" virus.

Discussion: Reno Tournament

Lightning2 you are not being forced to stay home, the state governors are just giving GUIDELINES they are not laws. The problem in my opinion is they are quarantining healthy people! If you are symptomatic then by all means self isolate and if not then don't. Yes I know they have said that asymptomatic people can pass the virus but I have questioned that, never known a virus that infected people and those people not show symptoms. Now they are saying this one does, I simply don't believe them. I wish business owners would open up, restaurants have tables 6ft apart, gym equipment 6ft apart etc. wear a mask don't wear a mask.

I think its very interesting that 66% of new Covid-19 cases in New York are from people who STAYED HOME! How are the CDC and Dr. Fauci going to explain that away?

Discussion: Corona Virus (COVID-19) • Part II

Was doing some research the other day because I had lots of time on my hands and I found out some interesting things about the Covid-19 virus. The CDC and now states are reporting the amount of cases by those who have tested positive and if you have taken a test they consider you positive until your test comes back negative. I find this interesting in that the states WILL now be reporting false inflated numbers of cases as the CDC was doing this already. Second point is that 80% of Covid-19 cases are being treated with little to no medical treatment necessary. Things that make you go 🤔
