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?

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!

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?

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.

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?
