Discussion: HR rule - why????

Pat, my guess is that they are trying to shorten the games. All of those hrs for walks only lengthen the inning. DBO's would shorten the game and hrs that counted as a run would shorten it even more. Let a hr count!
If there were no limit on hrs the inning would end quicker (7 or 9 hrs an inning would end the inning). Only the last inning may possibly be longer.
I hope I'm clear on this.

Discussion: SSUSA AND SPA MEETINGS

In the past I have suggested a home run derby at each qualifier. The winner(s) would advance to the finals at the nationals.
Details would be worked out, age divisions, rec/comp, entry fee, awards etc.
EV, I agree with the elimination of the front line of the batter's box. The pitchers have all the control as to where the batter will stand.

Discussion: pitchers shin guards

I've taken a couple of shots of my right shin so I figure it can't hurt to try them. I plan to be wearing them in Feb

Discussion: pitchers shin guards

I bought catcher's shin guards from teamexpress.com. They were on sale for $29 and $8 shipping. I also cut off the knee protector. I believe that part covered the knees when squatting. When standing they still cover the knees.
I haven't worn them in a game yet.

Classic Spring Training usually is held on Presidents Day weekend in February, not signups.

Discussion: Senior softball camp Altamonte Springs Fla.

I will attend Classic Spring Training in Jacksonville, Fl in the month of February. I will also be attending Softball Magazine's Spring Training, week 1, Cocoa Beach in March.
I would recommend both. There is a difference in each one, depends on what you are looking for.
Each focuses on batting practice with some scrimmage game thrown in. Softball Mag's also have clinics on fielding and pitching. CST has a pitching clinic and I'm sure if enough desire it a fielding clinic would be offered.

Discussion: Good umpires / bad umpires

I place an umpire's personality and disposition right up there with knowledge of the rules. As a first baseman I usually have much interaction with the base umpire. If he misses a call or makes a call that isn't within the rules I usually don't get upset if he talks about it and is willing to discuss it between pitches with me. A biggie with me is when they sometimes admit that they missed a call.
In my opinion it's bad when they miss or make the wrong call and then won't talk about it.

Discussion: sick players at Sunset Park

My illness didn't hit me until Tuesday afternoon. By Wednesday I was sick as a dog, didn't eat anything until Thursday evening. I'm just glad it didn't hit me while on the flight home Monday evening!!!
I drank the water at Sunset and had a hot dog.

Discussion: Rules question. Happened at Huntsman

I would think that if the ss tagged the runner going to third the run counted. If he was thinking he wouldn't tag the runner, he would make the force at third, the run wouldn't count.

Discussion: sick players at Sunset Park

Our 60 m+ team played there a 10 days ago. One player couldn't come to the park on our second day, Saturday. He told me it took 4 days to get over it.
I became sick on Tuesday, eating nothing for 2 days. It took me 5 or 6 days to recover.
I can't attribute my sickness to the park but my teammate's illness is questionable.
I drank little of the water but don't know how much my teammate drank.
I didn't go to a doctor and don't believe my teammate did either.

Discussion: I am breaking bats

After your senior bat is broken in, use it sparingly for bp. Buy an ASA bat with as close to the same swing weight as your senior bat that you can find. Use that bat for bp.
