No there isn't but there is nothing to stop your local league from doing it.

Topic: Insurance
Discussion: Special Thanks to Giovanni Crotti

Special thanks to Giovanni Crotti for bailing us out a last minute situation so we could play ball.

We are a kind of organized pick-up team traveling which travels to other city/towns with the same type of pick-up team. I kind of set up a loose schedule so we don't have to call each other and say you want to play next week.

Our Rec Dept pulled a couple of last minute deal that we need insurance for my team an all out of town teams needed insurance to play on our field. It seemed kind of stupid for a team which played us once to have to buy insurance to play that game.

Gio came up with a package that satisfied everyone at a reasonable cost so we could play our season.

Now they want the out of town teams to pay to use the field when we play them even though I pay a fee for using the field,but that is another story in the latest drama.

Totally agree with Omar and Taits.

In regards to the batters box as tait stated should be enforced also. At least they could have the right size boxes. Played at the TOC and for unknown reason the batters boxes were 4 x 6 and not 3 X 7.

That extra foot the batter stands away from the plate makes it very difficult to pitch a batter inside. The hitters have enough of an advantage.

It often amazes me with all these organizations from local to the pros that pass these rules and never enforce them.

If the rules really don't mean anything then why bother putting them in the rule book.

Pitching rules are my biggest complaint in our league with ASA umps never enforcing a lot of the pitching rules. I also gave up complaining.

Topic: Tournaments
Discussion: Promoting Tournaments

I remember 8 or 9 yrs ago when playing in the 70 Div that teams wouldn't go to a tournament if Mitchell Const. was entered. They were a power house at the time. We played them once (before the 5 run rule) and it was I believe 32-0 by the 3rd inning. Just about every hit was off or near the fences.

Topic: Bats
Discussion: Other bats

I use either my 2010 Toxic or my PST137's. At the TOC I used my 27oz PST B&G and went 14 for 18.

Few years ago when playing for a 75 Major team tried a senior bat and after the first day went back to,at that time, my MUT98.

I hit the ball well with the Senior bat (Launch 510) but they were all long outs. They looked good but were just outs.

I might be interested. I pitch and also a pretty good singles hitter.

Discussion: Cold Weather Clarification: Bats or Balls?

Plain and simple it is the balls.

Bat warmer is theoretically to increase performance which is why ASA has banned them.

Discussion: Tournament of Champions

I would like to add my thanks also. This was my first one and really enjoyed it.

The only problem I had is with the fields at the Southwest Sports Complex. The batters boxes were 4' wide and not the regulation 7'x 3'. It puts the pitcher at a disadvantage with the batters standing 3' away from the plate. It takes away from a pitcher who pitch's inside.

Discussion: Player Ratings

Dukes: If I have to explain that to you then you don't understand the concept of our association . We would like to have all our teams be at least competitive with each other. My team is very competitive with that team and I would say our record with that team is about .500 over the years, but some of the other teams are not.
