Discussion: Home plate Mat size change?

Thank you Tim; I just tried to imply; you said it precisely. I agree with your points.
It is a hitter's game; why not even up the odds a bit for pitchers?

Discussion: Home plate Mat size change?

I am not an expert on much, especially softball, but I do pitch. I am not the best, but not the worst at it either. I don't know if it would help by going to a bit larger mat, but my problem is that I throw every pitch breaking left or right. Many pass through the strike zone and then will miss the mat by less than a quarter of an inch.
I find myself at times taking some of the spin off for less break, but that ends up as a really fat pitch that gets plastered.
Maybe I should just catch!!

That should be 2/3!

Lefty, back in the 80's in New Orleans, I attended Seminary there. As interim pastor in Marrero, we would have a monthly cookout. The chef in our congregation would make gumbo in a 50 gal. drum; stirred it with a boat paddle. Cajun food is the best!!

for Gadsden, July 25-27. Outfielders preferred.

Also, do not know if anyone is interested, however, after Dalton, several players will be moving on to other age groups and/or other teams. So, looking for 3-4 good men to join our team. We are not sponsored, just love to play, 8-10 tourneys a year.

Let me know on here or call Steve at 205-647-2881.

Also, of great importance; my granddaughter, will be having surgery Tuesday, July 15, for the dog attack to her face. Your prayers are greatly appreciated. Thanks, Steve

Thanks, 4b, as well. Back in the 80's in New Orleans, we played overhand, slowpitch softball. I pitched a no-hitter (good defense!), struck out 3 and lost 4/3.

Thanks for your stories, my friends. Marv, we will leave yours to imagination only.
Stick, it was just a large meadow; the grass was cropped fairly short, so actually able to at least play part of a game.
I conducted softball leagues in my little town for 11 years, so I have a few stories. Hope others will share!
Omar, I was umpiring a tourney at my fields and one of the teams showed up drinking; it was 9 a.m.! Of course, they got pounded, but it was all my fault. During the course of the game, on player on the losing team continued harassing me, cursing me, threatening me, etc. Told me more than once than he would whip me as soon as the game ended.
He stated it again at the conclusion and I had had enough. So, I proceeded to tell him "You want to fight, o.k., let's go behind the concession stand and get it on."
We started to walk off the field and I stopped, turned and said "before we do this, let me ask you one question. Have you ever killed anyone?" He stammered and I repeated the question. "What do you mean?", he asked. I responded, "I am a Vietnam Veteran; I've killed a bunch of people and if we fight, I will kill you!"

He started laughing uncomfortably and patted me on the shoulder--"Oh Steve, you know I was just kidding!" and walked away.

I WAS BLUFFING! He was at least 15 years younger than me and probably would have won the day, even though he was drunk!!
