Discussion: AAA Home Runs

I would only classify teams based on wins and losses. Individual classification, to me, is pointless. It is a team game.

Gary19. Your last statement is correct. There is much more to the game than hr's. However, there are no limits on base hits, walks, fast players, or good defensive plays. There are restrictions on HR's.
IMO, go over the limit and it should be an out.

I don't care if they move up or not. That is not the point of my post. If you break the rules, you get punished. Over the limit should be an out not a free base.
I am not talking about one game with the wind blowing out 25-30 mph but if you have a TEAM that can hit an average of 6 to 9 hrs a game, why would you want to play AAA where there is a limit of 3?

Discussion: AAA Home Runs

As a player who is not a homerun hitter by any means, I could care less what the homerun limit is. However, if you set a limit and make a rule, going over the limit and breaking that rule should have consequences. Makeing HR's over the limit "walks" does nothing to "punish" the team that goes over the limit. An earlier post said that 9 HR's with no one on was only 6 runs, true. But if they were not walks, it would be 9 outs or 3 innings and chances are you will lose that game.
My experience is that the better hitters don't always hit HR's they also can base hit with anyone.

I don't know what to tell you. Jack is typically not quick with his replies. It usually takes him a couple days just to get back with his players. LOL. I will tell you that we have about 16 people on our roster this year and I think all are returning next year.

I play with them and I will let Jack know you want to contact him. I will not give out contact info without permission.

Discussion: courtesy runners

Gary, since noone seems to want to answer you about the last out having to be the cr, I will give you my opinion. The only problem I see is if the last out is a person who has difficulty running and would be replaced by a cr himself. Perhaps a better solution would be to limit the number of cr's per inning. As discussed earlier on this thread, it takes 8 hits with station to station advancement to score 5 runs, so why not limit the number of cr's to 2 or 3 per inning. Teams would have to use some strategy to decide who to run for, you could still have your designated rabbits and you could still run for guys that need it the most. BTW - first time poster and first year player.
