Discussion: Is Pitching Mask mandatory

Skeptical, this comment is just stupid! "what the pitcher wearing a mask also tells me is (a) he is lacking a bit of confidence in his defensive abilities and/or (b) he is a bit deficient defensively." I would bet I have pitched as many games or more than players my age(56)at some of the higher levels of softball than most. Not one pitcher that I know of in all of my career ever took the mound fearless! Everyone of us understood and FEARED this could be the day we get drilled. No one should have the right to tell someone how to run their company. If you or anyone else don't like something they sell or their rules, don't buy it! Simple! I hate the bats and have said so from day one, but I have the same choice you do. Play or don't play. If you want to campaign for a change, the mask is the wrong item. Go after the item that changed the game! JMO

Discussion: where are all the pitchers

Skeptical, it's a mind set. Anyone who feels like the pitcher or infielders are safer because they are protected will feel more comfortable at the plate. I've pitched in games that the pitcher wore no equipment had little to no balls hit up the middle. As soon as there was a pitching change and the next pitcher was dressed head to toe in protective equipment, the middle of the infield was the choice for some of the hitters. Not guessing that this happens, I as well as many others have witnessed this. Like I said, I don't think anyone hit's the middle to hurt anyone, but if the risk of injury lessens, some players feel it's ok to use that part of the field. JMO

Huler, it's ok to disagree. But I'll stick to my comment made earlier on this subject. It's jus my opinion. "I believe the more equipment the pitcher wears, the more hitters feel like it's ok to drive the middle. I don't think anyone looks to drive the middle to hurt, but the anxiety or worry about going the middle is lessened when the pitcher is equipped with protective gear.JMO"

Discussion: Has the game really been toned down?

SFTF said, "One accident and we are going to reinvent the bat and ball combo! The game has already been toned down! Injury's happen, even in the70s! I would where gear for fear of a bad field more than anything!" My quess is the memory is going or gone, because I cannot recall as many injuries let alone catastrophic ones back in the 70's or 80's.

No attacking here, just responding to what I'm reading with statements and questions. I never once said anything about his integrity. As far as my english, my point get's across. Don't like it, don't read it!You might be in the wrong forum if you want to start correcting papers.

Vet, where in the hell did I bad mouth this guy?

Ok, let's just come out and ask the the question. Sparky, why do you think your having difficulty finding a team to sponsor while throwing 10 G at them & indicating there is a player that comes with the money? Txtable, all I'm using is logic & common sense here. Your thinking with your heart. You can see you have more than a casual relationship with sparky. I think it's peachy keen this man wants to throw the money around to sponsor a bunch of folks he don't know, but I've been around the block a couple of times and this just don't look or smell right. Been through these type of sponsors before and those seasons were not any of my favorites. Anyone else see any of the same issues I do?

Discussion: Sponsor looking to finance an "established" Men's club

Sorry gentlemen, but your losing me on the old school/new school debate. The issue for me is simple. Where in any of our lifetimes have you ever seen or heard of a sponsor willing to shell out 10G's and needing to find a team to take it. Red flags going up all over the place. Wood, I respect your opinion, but indicating the email should have been kept private might be important to you, but maybe JSheeran thought it was important other people knew about the baggage as well. Is this not a place for info? I appreciate folks like you that have pulled big money out of your pocket to allow slugs like me the opportunity to play ball and keep cost low or maybe free. But there's something definitly wrong here and the wrong person was thrown under the bus. We are an old school team that raised our fees ourselves with a good sponsor and the rest covered with out of pocket money. Not one person on our club would ever want or except money with those kind of strings attached. I'm really surprised some people disagree. JMO

Well fellas, I'm one of those players that play for the fool that turned down this incredible sponsor! Ace, gu_nn & txtable, your all a-holes for suggesting everyone to take the money and screw the morals, and team chemistry teams work so hard to earn. It's obvious you need that money more than his team does. It's part of the reason our society works the way it does today. I'm sure all of you will need a case of chap stick from kissing this guys rear end, just so you can get your sponsor money. Instead of blasting Mr Sheeran, you should be thanking him for throwing this huge fish back into the sea for you three to go fishing for. Good luck!

Is the sponsor/player a SS & hit in the 3 hole? This is funny sh*t!

Good luck on the quality and support gig. Most of these companies buy them to milk them and set them free. Manufacturing will change shortly and quality will drop. That's my experience.

Discussion: 70' Bases

For the sake of asking, what is the reason for all the love for 70' bases? For me, it makes no sense based on the reasons I have heard. We don't need to run any further than we do already. If any infielder can snag one of these rockets going thru the infield, it is almost surely a double play at the distances we use now and almost none of the fields we played on in the last couple years have not been cut for the 70' distance. So we are looking at a lip to deal with if the infielders were to move back to compensate for the new distance. Am I missing something here?

Discussion: Out after 3 Home Runs

A home run rule that would surely remedy the sandbaggers would be make any homerun after the limit a inning ending out! It's been proven in some associations to be the end all to sandbagging. JMO

Webbie, you might be right, but you might be wrong as well. Who's to say what split second made the difference between a great play or a tragedy?

Discussion: AAA Home Run Outs

Boston, for the sake of asking, what's ludicrous about it? What would be your reason other than technology? What is the technology that makes these better? Is it is more forgiving and allows for players to miss the ball, but still get a better result or are they a much more durable product for the money we pay? Does the wood or metal bats concern folks more because their personal game at the plate would suffer or the overall integrity of the game would be changed? Just food for thought!

Discussion: AAA Home Run Outs

Webbie, just a split second can be the deciding factor in being hurt or not. So for the sake of mentioning it, it's something to consider. As far as the cold weather, when or where do any of the senior tourneys being played need to worry about the cold weather? It just seems that we continue to come up with more personal reasons for defending these composite bats than logic. The manufactures not wanting to change should not be the reason for not making one. I'm not advocating a change, I'm just using the responses I'm reading and these reason don't make any sense. Neck, I'm not gonna use anything. If you want to prove your point with your natural power swing. Use a single wall bat and prove your point. Don't spit your game unless you have one!

Fabe, reading most of your post and I can tell you are good man. But, it would cost us less to go back, not more. I know it's not going to happen, but let's first be honest and forth right. It was safer, more strategy was used and it cost considerably less.

Now your starting to get it! I believe with all the new equipment and technology we are acquiring, it won't be long before things like these are a suggestions or thoughts! Where do we stop and make it a sport where the deciding factor comes from the athlete playing the game and not the equipment being used? Was it really that bad with wood & metal bats?
