Discussion: WHY?

Thanks for your reply.

But none of you have answered why Slow Pitch softball is exempt from the same rules applied to all other forms of the same game.

In baseball, hockey and other sports rules were made making head protection mandatory.

How will you feel should you throw a ball that changes somebody's life?

Have you been hit and had to take the ambulance to the hospital?
Your family wondering if you'll become a vegetable or dead?

Also do you have the same attitude toward wearing seat belts in your car?

Discussion: WHY?

I have read the pros/cons of hot bats.

I know about the double first base.

I know about the second home plate.


A few months ago I witnessed a hitter running to 1st base after hitting the ball to the 3rd baseman. The 3rd baseman threw the ball wide to 1st base hitting the runner in the head. The runner suffered a concussion. He never saw it coming because he was watching where he was running.

Last week as I was running to 2nd base the ball was thrown from the area of the right field foul line missing my head by the narrowest of margins. I was nearly hit in the temple. Never saw it coming!

In Fast Pitch Softball at all levels, base runners have to wear batting helmets.

In all levels of baseball from Little League to Major League, base runners have to wear batting helmets.


Are you listening SSUSA?

Discussion: Centenarian or Mike Macenko Senior?


I'm torn between these 2 bats but can only buy 1!

So Ladies and Gentleman:

Which is the overall winner between these two bats in this mini bat war?

So let the competition begin!

Discussion: Combat Centenarian


Is the "Combat Centenarian" the same as "Gray Combat Da Bomb" with a different paint job?

If there is a difference, please explain!

Discussion: How many shaved bats in SS


My bats are legal but the warranty is about to expire. I won't mind them being sent in and with a little luck, cut open. That way I'll be getting new bats with another year of warranty on each one. It would be nice if they keep this rule as I could be getting new bats delivered to me yearly. If they just send them back to me and not replaced then I know they checked them out at their expense, which is fine by me. So it's a gamble that I could be getting a new bat replaced free. If I send a bat in for warranty, I will only get one replacement. But with this rule I can get multiple replacements. This is a great opportunity!

Oh, and thanks for letting me know about it!!

Does this rule also apply to metal bats?

I have some old DeMarini bats that I wouldn't mind having replaced.

Also if I pay an Ump to have the bat sent in, I won't even have to hit at the pitcher. A win, win situation. A great way to update a bat inventory.

From the time the bat is taken. About how long does it take for the new bat to be sent to me?

Thanks Guys

After reading these posts, I have to admit I think I like this rule.

I have a Freak and Easton that are both legal and the warranties are about to terminate. According to what I have read, all I have to do is hit some balls at the pither and, walla, I get the bats replaced with new ones.

Can't complain about that!
