Discussion: Good Luck Mike S

Good News: Mike is doing well after 4 repaired blockages. I understand he is already making passes at the nurses.

It is funny that you said that in those words; his nickname around here for years was "Serve em up Mike". We hit Wed night (indoors)- he hit well (for him).

I understand that many players are very upset that their batting average and homerun production will go down now that Mike is not pitching.

For those of you who know Mike Santo (NJ); he is having open heart surgery on March 31. We all wish him well and hope to see him back on the ball field soon.

Discussion: Wounded Warrior Project-League Tournaments

What a GREAT idea and so well deserved. I wish the East coast (NJ) would have a tournament that would donate to the Wounded Warrior Project. I wish you the best of success.

Discussion: Hitting to RF by a RH batter

I suggest before a game go to the back stop and pitch a ball up and hit it into the back stop. Basically: set up in front of the home plate and away; turn your back to the pitcher after he let's go of the ball; let the ball pass you by; and hit liking you are pitching to yourself.

Discussion: Why Not Have A Players Committee Of Real Players To Over See The Rules

I pitch from time to time in Major division (and have for >10 years). I honestly do not think that any hitter tries to hit close to the pitcher. Not been my experience.

However, if all levels were unlimited HRs, then the games / innings may get over quicker due to reaching the 5 or 7 run per inning sooner.

I do know several tournament directors and they do listen to comments. Sometimes the answer is no.

Wishing everyone a Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Topic: Bats
Discussion: Time to eliminate senior bats

I am not for eliminating senior bats because I have seen how people cheat with ASA bats. I am sure anyone who has played this game for any reasonable amount of time know this. Senior bats make it equal. Now if the tournaments supply the bats, then I would not care what bat is used.

Discussion: Out after 3 Home Runs

Nobody ever gave me a reason why we just donot have unlimited HRs at all levels. The game would move faster; teams would show the difference quicker and could be moved up in ratings quicker (nobody ever said a team could not be moved up during the season). I have played against teams that were power teams that simply did not move because they were restricted and hidden by the HR rule and did not show the power on paper but the pitcher found out quickly when they started hitting the middle. A lot of talk is made about not changing the game but it seems that this HR rule is not mentioned.

Discussion: Alternative to 1 - 1 rule.

Steve, I rather have the standard count but am open to your idea of 3 & 3. I still want the mat because the quality of the umpires is not consistent. It does take alot of pressure off them and the only argurement is height.

Discussion: AAA Home Run Outs

I do not play AAA but my opinion is this and is very simple. Allow unlimited HRs in every class. It will make games quicker by allowing 5 runs to be scored quicker and show separation of the power teams easier. One would not have to wait until the end of the year to bump a team up to the next level. By having limits if allows the better teams in each division to be hidden.

It seems that many complaints on the board are that certain teams should be at the next level. Just my opinion.

Discussion: Update from USSSA National Convention

Our team uses a pitcher screen in BP during the off season. So I do not see any issue with having a "foreign object" in the field. Especially if it is there for a safety concern due to slower reactions.

I am all for using less lively bats if they are supplied by the tournament. Otherwise cheater bats come in.

Discussion: Update from USSSA National Convention

It needs to be treated as a foul ball or batters will continue to hit it and wait for a pitch down the middle. I did not think of this before. So a hit screen with 2 strikes is an out.

No problem with having a screen. I do question why pitchers must wear a mask if a screen is in place. Rest is OK.

Discussion: AAA Home Runs

I respectfully disagree with the issue of making them outs. I do not hit that many but when I do, it makes no sense to be an out. In fact if we made they unlimited, the good teams would move up faster instead of being held back due to a rule that restricts or hides there abilities. Let's face it, I believe, the majority of teams will not move up on there own. so allowing unlimited HRs will allow for quicker and easier separation of ability. It will also get the game over quicker because the 5 run inning will get over quicker.

I understand some of the different issues mentioned here but I do not see the solution of going back to calling a 55 or 60 yr old person out for hitting a ball over 300 feet. I do not see our team or teams we have faced have the ability to hit HR whenever they want. I would like to see the power teams move up quicker and I don't want power hitters coming back up the middle trying to avoid an out by slaming a ball intentionally low.

Discussion: "Senior Moments"

Gary, I agree with you. I hear it too many times as an excuse instead of just admitting one was wrong or just too darn lazy. I cannot speak for how I will feel when I am 70; I am 60 now and I still slide, dive, get my kness and elbows cut up, and pull muscles every so often. I think of it as part of the game. I also hit the gym a couple of times a week; it takes a commitment to try to remain competitive. You think there isn't many a Sat or Sun morning where I don't feel like sleeping in?

Discussion: SLIDING!!

HJ - on our tourney team, I would estimate 8 of 10 slide without giving it a thought; one does it rarely and one no due to just getting over knee operation.

I do not feel 60 is old. It is just a number and for the most part, we are big kids having fun. I would ask, of thoses that slide - how many work out at a gym?
