Discussion: Are walks hits in Senior Softball?

You can do anything you want, but keep in mind that in baseball when you reach on an error, you're 0 for 1 and also 0 for 1 in on base percentage. The same is true for fielder's choices. I'm astounded at all the players that think these are hits!

You should keep both. I always provide stats to our players, and we keep BA, OBP, and slugging percentage. Walks are important, but they never score a runner from second!

Discussion: team seeking players for 2015 including Phoenix this month

This team has some talent, and there's got to be some 70-year-olds out there looking for a team. I'm not 70 yet, but I know Mike and I've seen his team play.

Discussion: Need team for Phoenix--70AAA or Major

I beg to differ. If you keep stats, AND you know the difference between a hit and an error, you'll see that a lot of AAA players can't even hit .600

Between the two of them, they have eight championship rings, two MVPs, and around eight all-tournament patches.

Discussion: Need team for Phoenix--70AAA or Major

Two computer-challenged players need to find a new team after their squad broke up (Silver Sox 65AAA). I have played with both of them for years in tournaments and leagues. The first is a lefty-lefty 1B who hit .678 in 2012 tourneys and .571 in 2013. Don't have this year's stats because I went to a different team. He prides himself on being the master of the unassisted double play at first.

The second is a righty 2B-3B-P who hit .615 in 2012 and .658 in 2013. By the way, errors are NOT hits. They would like to join the same team because they always carpool together.

Discussion: Passing of Tom Sneddon

I'm sorry to have to announce the passing of Tom Sneddon of cancer. He was the manager of the Silver Sox 65AAA team in Southern California, and before that played on the 60AAA version of the team. Before that, he was the District Attorney that attempted to prosecute Michael Jackson. He will be missed.

Discussion: Team move-ups

I want to express my opinion that every team should have two different margin averages. One is for non-open innings and one for open innings. There is no way you can mesh the two together and not expect very skewed stats.

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!
