I could see it... GSL directly affects USSSA turn out numbers to Space Coast. By eliminating GSL, teams that want to participate in USSSA worlds would have to go to FL. Lot of teams don't have the budget to do both, would be one or the other. However, this is pure speculation, no truth to this.
1-You don't think USSSA will launch that tourney version as an option for their directors, they def will. 2-USSSA owns the GSL name, Cliff can leave but the name will not. 3- Cliff can't run a national organization , he's a buffoon.
The two main differences are GSL has a designated HR hitter. He/She gets unlimited HRs that do not count against your team total. If the Hitter gets walked, the team gets 1 free HR until they came back up in the lineup. The second being anyone on your roster can pinch run once an inning..
Pitching rules differ in how they are worded but they end up being very similar.. Example, GSL is 5ft from ground. USSSA is 3ft from release..
