Discussion: Which Sports Do More Americans Participate In?

I'm thinking those facts don't disclose everything. For instance, Slow-pitch Softball. It is no longer played here in high schools, they have switched to fast pitch.
I would much rather see numbers instead of percentages.

Discussion: ARC OF THE PITCHED BALL

I only pitch in league ball because we use a screen. I've had many pitches called illegal that were, imo, 10'. I don't usually complain (exception is when it should have been strike three) because most times I throw a 16-20 it isn't called illegal. So, I now have the reputation of throwing very high pitches, which, I believe are much harder to hit than a 10' pitch.
I will say that both umpires we use are consistent, allowing 10-20' pitches. I'm ok with that.

Discussion: Hitting from tee vs. hitting pitched ball

My guess from experience, 330+. This assumes you are placing the tee at the optimum(al) position.

As far as our league goes, more pitches are called illegal for being flat than too high.

I will compliment the umpires on their judgment of the arc of the pitches, most were very good.

Thanks for your input Grimmie. As for me getting a job, no thanks!

Grayhitter, I, too, inquired about that rule. A close play at first on a double play. I told the plate umpire the runner hit the white bag and his reply was that he could hit either one, new rule in ASA.
It wasn't a close game in was in the 5th or 6th inning so we didn't argue. Our manager asked after the game and was informed that was incorrect.
In another game on Saturday the opposing pitcher was releasing the ball when he was approximately 12 feet behind the rubber. I mentioned this to the base umpire and he said he would watch. Next inning was the same thing. My manager and I brought this to the attention of the plate umpire and he said the pitcher box lines were rubbed out and wasn't going to call it.
Next inning I told the base umpire this and he said he couldn't tell how far their pitcher was behind the rubber. I said surely you can tell the difference between 6 and 12 feet! His reply was that our pitcher could do the same! My reply was "if the other team had been using a shaved bat would it be ok for us to use one?"
End of conversation.
Btw, heard of two other ejections in Maryville, one for fighting and one for "showing up the umpire".

Caswell Park in downtown Knoxville is probably the nicest (landscape wise) I've played at!

Cougar, much like a bat. I'm guessing loading a racquet is not illegal in the rules of racquet ball.

Discussion: Bat physics/dynamics question

Using my Swing Speed Radar I found my bat speed is +- 5mph faster.
As discussed here before, it's the mass found in end loaded bats that increase distance.
Maybe the guy that re-strings racquet loads the end of the frame ;)

We're playing there Friday afternoon but won't have much time before that. Maybe Saturday, depending on our schedule.

Garocket, "that was well known for cutting the handle and adding about a two inch piece onto the handle to make the bat longer"

Discussion: Dudley Lighning 12 inch senior bat saw tooths

My first 12" had crazy distance. My second one has about 600 swings and has yet to see those long shots. I believe that my first one had tremendous handle flex where #2 doesn't, yet.
