Seems ridiculous to me. Hopefully the staff will chime in...

Except of course no one bats only 9 players in a softball game.

Too bad. There used to be a lot of exciting plays involving the commitment line that I don't think we'll see anymore.

I don't agree. No discussion of 25' at all?

Discussion: Rules

I don't think anyone had a calculator handy when they changed the commitment line. It used to be 30% of the distance between home and 3rd. Now it's 43%. The rule should be corrected to 25 feet from home. That would be 35.7% and not such a drastic change.

I thought I read that the commitment line was changed this year to 30' from home plate, not 20'.

Discussion: Recommendations for lodging in Hemet

I have stayed at the Quality Inn in Hemet probably four times now. I like it because it has bigger TVs than the Hampton Inn and they have DirecTV. I would definitely take it over the Hampton Inn because the latter doesn't give you any bang for your buck. Smaller TVs and fewer channels. Like Andy said, the Motel 6 on McCall Blvd. has mini-fridges, a restaurant around the corner and a Wendy's next door. That is where I'm staying this time.

Andy--
If you had been running things, you would have left the 4 runs on the board and you'd still be playing in extra innings instead of our 1-run win!

Discussion: Counting runs correctly

We had an argument in one of the last games on Sunday involving how many runs were scored in an inning. The umpire had it wrong, but yet both scorers had the same number of batters in the innings, nine. That makes it easy. All you have to know is how many runners were left on base, and that was easy, too, because we had just walked a batter to load the bases. Just remember this formula:

Number of batters minus runners left on base, minus outs equals runs scored (9-3-3). In this case it was three, not four, and they finally changed it. Every umpire and manager should become familiar with this formula.

And be sure to back up a few inches. Most batters seem to stand the same way on EVERY at bat. I sure don't.

It all depends on where Dave is. He went from Vegas straight to Indy, so Indy got updated first.

I got our team's votes in within a week, but that's not long enough. Two weeks should be the time frame. We vote as a team and do it by email and it takes a week to compile them.

Discussion: ratings

I assume it's the same as our team being moved up without winning anything. Too many players rated Major on the team. Call Sacramento and ask George Moreno how many Major players are on your team. I think 4 or more is a red flag.
