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!

Discussion: Bat physics/dynamics question

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.

Discussion: Old stories of bat doctoring

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

Porky Bagwell??

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.

Discussion: Ranken "Tater" Johnson passed

I never met Tater but exchanged emails and chatted through the "Mohr Board". I believe he lived in Pennsylvania. He was probably the first softball player that I had communicated with through the internet.
I am touched by her email and sadden by her and our loss.

Discussion: Ranken "Tater" Johnson passed

I received this today:
Hello this Rankin's youngest daughter Kimberly.  I am sorry to take so long to tell you some bad news about my dad.  In November he was diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung Cancer that had spread to his spine and neck. He tried to fight for several weeks but unfortunately he lost his battle on January 27th, 2015. I don't even know who all on his contact list on this email I should be telling, but I found you as all peoples he was in contact with in the past and he keep emails from you all. 

Sorry for the bad news. Thank you for being my dad's friend.

Sincerely,
Kimberly Johnson Bigelow

Discussion: Runs Scored vs. Runs Allowed

I dont't have time to read the replies but I can quickly say that runs scored shouldn't be considered because if your team happened to be home team they may not get the chanced to bat in the open innings if they are ahead.

Crusher, those infielders should wear shin guards and a mask. I wear shin guards.

Why does that not surprise me about SL??

btw, I agree with Webbie about his opinion on major plus players.
