Discussion: 1 and 1 pitch count

Just my opinion, but I see no reason what so ever for there to be a 0-0 count. Make it a 1-1 count with a foul and please speed up the games. We rarely ever play 7 innings. ALOT of money is paid for shortened games at every tournament.

Discussion: toughest position

I think pitchers. They are the closest and don't have the luxury to play further back. Seen more pitchers get hurt bad this yr, than in yrs past.

Discussion: pitchers mask

You know, umpires do have the authority to toss batters they they feel are going middle on purpose. Saw it this yr. in a usssa tourney. Same batter 2 times in a row hit the pitcher and got tossed.

Discussion: pitchers mask

I still pitch against upper level young guys as well as senior ball, and I am now wearing the Worth helmet. Takes a little to get used to but does give you alot more confidence. Not exactly sure what I'm going to do about sunshine in my face since I'm used to wearing a hat all the time. But you can wear sunglasses with it. Hope this helps.

Discussion: Time to move TOC

I think it should be moved to November. The colder weather states haven't played since October at best and they are rusty to say the least while the warmer states get to play all year. Plus the weather would be much warmer and more cooperative.

Discussion: where are all the pitchers

Maybe when the pitcher gets drilled the batter should pitch the next inning....lol. That might make some batters think twice about going after the pitchers.

Discussion: where are all the pitchers

It's funny how most of the
head hunters in this game are guys who usually would never step on the mound. I pitch in the young guys game and it's the same there. The only thing you hear after you get drilled is....I didn't mean to hit you, lol, but you're the one swinging the bat and going middle all the time. Alot of guys couldn't really care less.

Discussion: place best hitters last strategy

That has to be the dumbest idea ive ever heard, why would you take the bat out of the best hitters on your team, there is a reason why the guys who hit 800+ bat in the top of the order.
If it is an average 5+ at bats per tourney I see no advantage to limit their at bats.

Discussion: More 1-1 Count Talk

I voted for the 1-1 count...can't see any reason at all for a 0-0 count. It would be nice to play 7 innings most of the time instead of only once in awhile.

Discussion: Out after 3 Home Runs

big cat7 I think you're right on both accounts. I still play with the young guys and I can tell you from experience the middle is where it goes when the homers are up.

Boombah bags are the bomb. I've used only 2 for the last 12 yrs, got my moneys worth.

Discussion: Grading the Rule Changes

I agree with most of the rules except the pitch count. I pitch and leadoff and I think it's an incredible waste of time when you have time limits on games. What about the seeding games on Fridays? Making people take off of work, get a hotel for an extra night, driving the price up of tourneys and wearing everyone out for Sunday?
