Re: Poll: What classification is Rock Run?
After watching a few of their games, they definitely play the game the right way. Watching the game against bay area, where the wind was blowing in, they were hitting the gaps and going oppo, rather than trying to hit balls over the fence and into the wind. Obviously, the big difference between them and other teams is their defense. Watching probably too many games on the live stream and condensed games, they're running and diving all over the place. I've seen it too many times where balls get through the infield because guys are afraid to get dirty...not with this team though. Ground balls these guys hit, they aren't jogging to bases, they're hauling ass These guys put full effort into the game and are rewarded with wins. Someone's gotta be the best B team. Bump them next year.
Usssa seems to have some of the most unclear rules when it comes to bumping or dropping teams. Why is it so hard to have a set guideline? Is it due to fear of upsetting sponsors if there's no gray area, allowing teams to finagle rosters, keeping them at a certain ranking?
