Maybe more thought to a move to a more accommodating venue like PHX or St. G or split Vegas areas up so some are there others are in say St. G. St George area seems to be more apt to do these things. The area also has the parks as do PHX areas.
But then it all depends on those contracts that seem to auto renew.
There were post about age brackets\ratings were to move around so hopefully that will happen so teams are stuck in same locations year after year for better or worse.

As for length being 34". I've been told there is a 'variation' or a word to that effect for that which is roughly 1\8 inch... IMO that is still over the 34" so go figure on size limits....
However, maybe it's like speed limits...
But sure see your point.

D...Dan,
Do not remember ever seeing on of those, probably for a good reason.
LOL he might take a tennis ball and cut it place silly putty inside, and mold it to the knob. will look about the same at least.

I can see why he might like it though. Hand palm over it allowing for slightly more leverage if it doesn't come off in the swing follow through. I use a thick weight lifers glove for that because it fills the gap between the pinky finger and the knob depending on the handle (thickness) size.

Discussion: toughest position

Robo2,
We share positions in this I'd agree w\ ya but add to it the pitcher is supposed to back up all corners as well as I do. So my vote if this were put to a vote, the pitcher.

Defects like these (knobs breaking) should be covered in warranties.

Discussion: Aluminum bats and blue dot balls

I know many that would still play.
I doubt there would actually be any REAL difference in doing that compared to what we have available now.

Alloy bats dent, wave and crack. Used with Balls 47 to 52 cor with average of 525 comp.
Composite bats crack, break are used with balls @ 44 \375 or lessor balls.

Both these equipment type comparisons fly about same distances. Damage rates are about same also.
While I'm sure some will disagree, that's ok too. But I doubt this will happen because there is too much money changing hands involved. Those that did make the alloys probably still have the machinery to start up again though. The process is very interesting to see in person.

Discussion: TEAM PENALIZED FOR GODD DEFENSE AND PITCHING

L,
I agree with you to a point but both are needed to win.
Think that singles or better more often can be more of an advantage than one HR unless the bases are loaded as it were. Think they call it dinging then do death.
Have 'learned' that teams tend to get better when they play better teams. I know more than a few teams who bitched the board to death when they got moved up to 3A. But they have been more than capable at that lever for some time. Same goes for a few 3A teams that moved up to M.
On other side of coin I also know teams that do not belong where they are.
It isn't a perfect world is it, but it is what it is.
That all said there are teams that have NEVER moved up from AA and could well be that the came could apple for teams that entered as #A and are stuck there.
Book said something like they base ratings on at least 3 qualifiers but they do not say which ones or how far back. Also there is a sentence I mentioned in one of my post on this before that they reserve the right to do this at any time.
Kinda a cop out in my book, but I guess sometimes circumstances change just teams loose players and get in a bind.
Over all they do the best job out there.

In these games I've learned it you don't score the '5' in almost every inning and more in the open, your a lame duck at any level.
Still thing with the W\L they have a good chance at majors. Down side for it NOW is timing and the shock just before so soon.

I misplaced by book and no time to read the site post but I think you play at level you won the right to play for the championship.
With that win\loss record, the team should fair well.

Discussion: TOC

Only other 'troubling' way Is a search here for specific events they sometimes post here. It is more time consuming that the other but is they didn't complete them as I know some aren't your SOL.
Maybe if they get a moment from reading 'boring' post (lol) as one says, you might get a reply post here on that...

Might be more helpful if you mentioned which age bracket and ratings though making if less time consuming I'd think.

I think they all have more important things to worry about this week.
However you could do that your self just by checking TOC events that have already played out.

Discussion: WHY SEVEN RUNS PER INNING?

Swing...
My money would be on neither of those. but rather it would be;
1st; TIME alloted per game,
2nd; runs,
3rd; innings
