Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: AAA HR rule question

Gary in response to your opening post
"example. Bottom of the 7th and each team has 1 Hr. If I hit one out is it a game winner or is it still a single???? "
In reality it is a Miracle if you hit one out--JMO

Discussion: one out bases loaded

as long as the runner stayed on third he could not be tagged out--and when bag is tagged or the runner coming from second is tagged then the need for runner on third to advance is nullified--therefore as long as the runner on third stays on the bag as stated by Wes then he is safe --one out period

Discussion: Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy

I have had a pacemaker for enough years that it had to be replaced last year--played at Dalton 10 days later. Incidentally I play outfield and courtesy run several times per game--I have never felt ill effects from it although when it is checked I always laugh when the tech tells me I had blank number of episode and then I tell her approx what time they were--every time you run or even swing the bat several times in BP it shows an episode---

Discussion: player eligibility

the scenerio is as follows----players played on a team that won a tournament thereby qualifying for TOC--upon completion of said tournament several players requested and received a release from the qualifying team----from my understanding of the rules they cannot play for the team again for a year--BUT is this overruled by the fact that they were/are listed on the roster of the team when it qualified---what is their actual status????

Discussion: SLIDING!!

Gary do you really see the point?? you keep comparing KIDS with the supple muscle and soft bones with OLD MEN with stiff muscles and bones that are getting brittle--there is no comparison as to how much a person of age can become injured with inproper technique----

Discussion: SLIDING!!

HJ--in response to yuor question I am the only one on my team that slides and I saw very few others do it---I would venture 10 percent or maybe less---there is a huge downside though--I have spent several hours since I got home removing the Georgia clay stains!!!! they are not easy to remove-----

Discussion: SLIDING!!

Gary "even remotely correctly" can cause major injury---sliding to closely to the bag can cause a broken ankle or a knee strain etc-- sliding on the wrong side of the bag can cause contact with infielder--a bag raised a little can cause knee or ankle injuries---I would say if a player especially a senior if they do not know how to slide can cause major injuries----base running is an art and takes lots of watching and thinking about situations---its the coaches job to watch the ball its the runners job to know where the fielders are---nothing about good base running/sliding can be remotely correct---

I agree Santo---I slide alot and have never been hurt doing it---I slide in order to avoid contact---a minor scrape is all I have ever incurred---

Discussion: SLIDING!!

I just returned from Dalton today and in seven games I probably slid 10 times--different slides for different bases and different situations---I am 66 years old an dfairly quick for my age--I will go in on my side or back or even head first and have never collided with the fielder and knock on wood haven't been called out when I slide--except once when I slid accidentally at home platein Columbus In this year--had a senior moment and forgot where I was --to my thinking running and sliding are a very important part of the game----I don't know about the rest of you but when I cross the chalk line I give it everything I have win or lose---

Discussion: What makes it a "Senior" bat???

once again Gary you show your ignorance---anyone can--like you--knock a pasttime that is enjoyed by hundreds if not thousands---all of these men and women pay their money and participate and those with complaints voice them along with possible solutions--as I stated I gladly pay my money and PARTICIPATE in whatever tournament my team wishes to attend-----your "degree" I do not know if you even have one but allowing that you do--the degree did not give you the intelligence to offer solutions or the sensitivity to allow you to realize that no one cares for your constant negativity--

Discussion: What makes it a "Senior" bat???

just did a little research---SSUSA lists 81 tournaments of which 8 contain the word National---slightly less than 10 percent---4 contain the word world----and then I reread the comments on this thread which is titled "what makes a senior bat" and once again Gary19 kidnaps the thread for his illogical point of view--plain and simple a relatively small number of tournaments are termed National hence this subject is not really important--besides the great one admittedly does not pay his money to play in them so the naming of such is really none of his business--I gladly pay my money to play despite whatever the name of the tournament---

Discussion: What makes it a "Senior" bat???

not having a "masters" although I did manage to master kindergarten--oh wait I cannot lie kindergarten did not exist when I started school--anyway to my feeble mind Rastern or Western National chanmpionships mean the tournament is a National event to be held in either the East or the West with each being open to teams from the entire nation--whether teams from the west choose to enter the East version is up to their descretion and vice versa---also I believe if a team from Japan registered and then entered either tourney they would be accepted---so whats all the fuss about!!!!!! and sadly I measured and I am 45/35 not bad for my head and neck huh!!!!

Discussion: Player Ratings

guys there is much more than hitting to the game--take defense away and you have a 30 -30 tie after 6 innings--different players bring different things to a team and to be successful one part cannot be removed from the equation---Gary19 I am trying to find you a bra for that man boob problem!!!! will let you know if I find one---

Discussion: Player Ratings

Webbie I think it needs to go deeper than offense and or defense--what about a player that can raise a teams spirits with his demeanor--teams seem to play better when happy as compared to grumbling so I think a player with a light and airy nature is a plus--JMO

Discussion: Player Ratings

I notice that the comments on rating players seems to center on hits or on base percentage---we all know players that bat only--they utilize courtest runners and do not play the field as they cannot move--how do these players rate when compared to a player that may not hit as well but plays the field and runs for themselves and others???Or an outfielder that can run but cannot throw---which is better a guy that can run the ball down but cannot throw it or the guy with a cannon for an arm but the runner has already advanced a base or two by the time he gets to the ball?? just my thinking
