Discussion: Why Not Reward Performance?

We had the same conversation last week in Vegas. Ours was centered on the higher seeded team being given the option of home or visitor. This would add to the importance of doing well in pool play.

Discussion: Las Vegas World ( batters box )

We had one called out at Desert Breeze and two called out at Lorenzi, all by the same umpire. All three instances the chalked boxes were 4' to the front of the plate's "elbow" and three feet to the rear. In two other of our games at Lorenzi the box was drawn 9' long, no problem there.

Discussion: How to Play More Innings

I know that Sparky.1. I would think they would want to negotiate their per game fee if they knew games would be a minimum of 90 minutes. I wouldn't expect them to work a 90 minute game at the 60 minute fee.

Discussion: How to Play More Innings

I don't believe it will happen either. It would mean paying umpires more. My point is that as a player that loves the game why would I want to speed up the game. Btw, I love one pitch games! But, there is a time of one pitch and a time for 90 minute games.

Discussion: How to Play More Innings

Why would you like to shorten the games?? I would propose to make each game 90 minutes, finish that inning and play the open inning. Also, make it 3 strikes and 4 balls.
Imo the only ones that would like a shorter game would be the tournament director and umpires.
If you like shorter games play one pitch!

Discussion: WHO ARE CURRENTLY THE MOST POWERFUL HITTERS IN SENIOR SOFTBALL

Sonny, it was good to put a face with a login id! I see that you saw my post on softball fans.
I hope to see you at the ball field soon. Btw, softball magazine open signups should be open soon for their spring training in Cocoa Beach in March. Bogie and his son Brett will be there.

We watch friends play at Sunset Park and they used the lights there. I took about 45 minutes for them to be functional.

Discussion: Worlds in Vegas

We had a situation at Lorenzi that really infuriated some of us. As we moved into the dugout, our umpire informed both teams that we were on the clock. The grounds crew had just began to drag the infield. We appealed to the umpire to restart the clock when the crew left but we were ignored.

At the start of the fifth inning we were told we had 16 minutes left and when the top of the sixth arrived he announced open inning. The fifth inning wasn't an exceptionally long inning.
It probably would have been good if we had kept a clock along with the umpire.

Discussion: the new bat "Nightmare"

Wayne, the Dudley was designed by the same person that designed the Reebok Melee Legend and the Nightmare was designed by the same person that designed the Senior Combat and the yellow and white MM Combat (tatooball I believe).

Discussion: the new bat "Nightmare"

I'm thinking you have not read all of the post pertaining to the Nightmare. Tatooball is the one responsible for the bat and it carries the company name AD Starr on the bat. AD Starr is more well known for softballs.
