Discussion: AAA Home Run Outs

The only screen I'll ever agree to stand behind is the one on my front door. If you need a screen to play softball, you might want to consider darts or ping pong. Our game was not meant to have or need one. Maybe those converted catchers or DH might need them or the players that have their gloves repaired by the local welder! LOL

This is not a game of homeruns. If you want homeruns, have a contest! It gets to be so ridiculous to here grown men whining about the limits. Let's go back to open fields, then you can hit the ball as far as you want.

Big cat, take no offense. If you want to hit that many homeruns per game, then move up. I personally get tired of hearing about 50-55 year olds capable of hitting the ball 300 ft. They are not making it go that distance the bat is. Use a metal bat if you need to keep it in the park. There are so many excuses on why we should do this or change that. Anything after a limit should be an out, for that matter maybe an inning ending out. That would start getting someones attention. Let's face it, if we were still using the equipment we grew up playing with we would not be having this discussion. JMO

No one ups for anyone. Why continue to try and circumvent or create rules to make a small group happy? It's simple, play by the rules set forth or move up to the division you belong in. If you want one up, move up! It's about the capability to hit 3 in the AAA division, not limit teams to 3. Change your bat or ball if your having issues keep it in the yard.

The ball & bat made me do it! Does anyone else see the direction this is going in? If the equipment is the deciding factor in how far or quickly ball travel or approach players, why is it so hard to find an answer to all of this? If your one of those players who wants to feel empowered because of todayís equipment, so be it. But you can't have it both ways. I think outs after the limits have been reached is the only way to go. Thatís why they are called limits. Big cat7 is dead on with his comments. The limits have allowed someone to sit on their behind and look at game stats (Homeruns, run diff, etc) and decide what division we should be in. Back year ago, the directors were the ones running tourneys and could witness the games and decide where teams belonged. Our team is built with friendship, and the AAA level in mind.

Discussion: Grading the Rule Changes

Did the balls add 10, 20 or 30 + feet to every ball hit? Adjustments are made all the time. Wind, heat & cold can make all kinds of variances. But please don't use the balls made me do it line!

So the 70' rule was put in more for the runners than the fielders? That makes more sense than talking about the DP and fielders safety.

Discussion: Grading the Rule Changes

Someone needs to explain how the 70" bases are going to make it safer game. More hammy's are pulled in the last few feet trying to make it to the bag at first than at anytime in the game. Will they be cutting all the infields back to accomondate the 5" difference in the bag? If not, moving the bags makes no difference in safety or double plays. If an infielder can catch the rockets launched off the bats, chances are it will be an easy double play. Also, if the players move back on the grass to make up for the 5" lost, they will have to deal with the lip on the infield grass. That in itself will create more injuries than before the move. JMO

Discussion: pitching screens

If everyone feels the bats don't make that big of a difference. Then lets go back to wood and the old cork center strung wound ball. Almost every comment regarding the bats are not the problem, it's the balls. Then what the lovefest with the bats? They cost more money and don't last nearly as long.

Discussion: Thoughts for the upcoming SSUSA Rules Committee meeting!

Nobody should have to move up or out for winning a championship in any division. Teams that are sandbagging, that is a different story. We're going way overboard on this win one/move on mentality. Directors just need to do their jobs. To broom someone up or out because they win on this weekend is BS. Putting a good team together of friends that can play is becoming a thing of the past. Is winning becoming the only reason we play?

Instead of finding more ways to protect ourselves and spending more money doing so. Why don't we save tons of money and go back to equipment that would make the game safe. JMO

Discussion: Senior softball summit

Sorry cal, the statement "World tourneys were never meant to be more than one representative from each state" was used to indicate a field of teams from the US that represented all of the states that registered with the association hosting the world tourney. In other words, world tourneys teams were supposed earn their entry, not given them. Their intentions were not to have world tourneys that allowed teams that had not qualified to participate. But I sure you could read between the lines, just not sure why your insisting on being anal. Everyone but you could interpret this. I like change as well, just not most of the changes where a World tourney is NOT really a world tourney. We all like softball or this conversation would not be happening. Others & I have played it for years and in my OPINION, we have removed a vital ingredients from our game, but added another. We've lost some integrity and really over emphasized money. JMO

Well cal, I don't think any of them do anymore. But this could be why some of the softball purist don't think much of our game anymore. USSSA started the world series for each class with only teams that won qualifiers. Then it became NIT champs only. I think that number at my first WS was 16 teams. The NIT were filled with teams looking to win that berth. The money being made was made on the NIT and the WS was the prize for winning one. Now the awards for the World winners aren't much different the the ones earned at the local tourney's, but the sure is!

Webbie, for all the folks who hate when Gary19 adds his 2 cents, I think you guys must be interested in what he says or why you would awake the sleeping dog. World tourneys were never meant to be more than one representitve from each state. A winner that earned the right to do so. What did all of these teams do to earn the passage to the most important tourney of the year? All it takes is MONEY! This is no world tourney. It's not the best of the best. it's the teams with the expendandable cash. JMO

Discussion: Take responsibilty

I'm glad your satisfied Silk. When you really think about it, 40 swings would be about a days worth of BP. So if anyone is saying they have a bat that last less than a day after purchase. By all means you have every right to be upset. But unless you can prove the equipment has a flaw or is defective, it's you got what you paid for. My beef is knowing we are buying non warrantied bats and complaining when they break. When anyone with common sense see NO WARRANTY on anything they purchase, it should send up a red flag. No one & I mean no one our age should expect anything different when purchasing this product. Have a great off season.

Discussion: Take responsibilty

Bat prices have remained the same, but the manufactures are at every chance they get finding another source that's offshore or economically poor country to make them cheaper. That's the only reason they have not raised prices. When they can not drop pricing on manufacturing, the prices will start to rise or they'll discontinue making that model. All the products being offered today started out being manufactured at a higher price, when they realized they had a good product they started a search for cheaper labor and materials. I can guarantee you this, they will not make it a practice to replace non warranty bats.
