Google.com is your friend! It appears that justbats.com was the online site that at one time offered the bat at $159. It is now $199.

Discussion: Correct Call???

I can see the interpretation "if there is a play" to mean there is an opportunity to make an out. Imo the rule book should be edited to be more clear.

Discussion: Correct Call???

My understanding it that there MUST be a throw to first for the batter/runner to have to use the orange bag.
Also, it is an appeal play in SPA if the batter/runner used the white bat when there is a throw there. I was also told that in ASA it is not an appeal play, the umpire will call an out if he observes the runner using the white bag.
Not sure in SSUSA.

Discussion: Illegal player

Dale, I believe 10 or 15 years a team was caught with under aged players and the players and maybe the managers were suspended. I don't remember the duration of the suspension.

Staff, thanks for clearing my confusion!

I have a 2014 USSSA approved bat, the Worth Sick 454 Greg Connell. It has a bpf of 1.20 so it meets the criteria "All bats marked "1.21 BPF or less".
cleanoneb, is the bpf listed on your bat?

The way I read the new "Bat Policy" is that ASA, USSSA and some older senior bats are no longer approved. This includes my yellow/white MM Combat, among others.

Alan, I watch most of your first two games on Saturday. Some of the hr's were impressive.
Is it true that the two 50M+ lost 3 out of 4 rr games to major teams?
Seems like there isn't much difference in the divisions. I should add that Doc C's was given an extra fielder.

Robbie is the TD for the Marietta tournament.
PattyMac, I've been a proponent for reducing the divisions to three for quite a few years but SPA and SSUSA apparently don't agree with that. See you Friday.

Same situation here Joe. No team for us to play in bracket play so we won't be playing in Cartersville. I'll be there as a spectator, err athletic supporter. ;)

Thanks for the props Garocket.
Webbie, my knee is much better, maybe 90%. Now we need a tournament to play in.

I would think most, if not all 44/375's would out distance the 52's.
I've always heard to get maximum distance out of the 52s you must cut the ball. If you cut it you won't hit any knuckle balls.

Glad to do it BB.
Gary, the Evil Heavy ball is easy to recognize, it is orange and white.

Discussion: Do you use a Heavy/Warm up ball

I used it before bp on Saturday and again last night before our league game. Everyone that took a few tosses with it agreed that it looks great and it seems to have the right weight, not nearly as heavy as the Cannon Ball.
I agree with your earlier post "Evil Heavy will be the end of Cannon Ball for softball."
Thanks again!
