Discussion: Senior Softball Official Rule on leads on base

If you are the umpire and you are the only umpire, what are you looking at, the batter or the runner on frst, you better be looking at the ball/batter and if you have more then one umpire things like this should be discussd during the pre game umpires meeting. However, I doubt that the umpires will get down to this level of umpiring in some slo pitch games. "Umpires this is something to think about"

Discussion: HOME RUNS

Regarding lefty-9 post, its good to hear that you can go deep and your in a group of a few at 65, however what Mitch stated is true if you have no other division what are you to do. From what I see most players in the 65's are AAA or AA. Lefty If you follow the tourament schedule of teams you will see this.

Discussion: HOME RUNS

I'm 68 and played in this bracket at Ft. Myers, I got upset when I read the format for the 65's regarding home runs, we played in six games and saw one hit (out) I'm not a HR guy but did go deep three times and I would have been happy knowing I could hit that far, but it would have been a let down to the team for making an out. I wrote an earlier post regarding this subject and explained that at this age bracket it would be great to hit one, also by allowing a HR to stand in this bracket would simplify some of the guidelines for the association coordinating the tournament.

Discussion: ATTACK..But, gutless, who r u.

Regarding some of the posts I've read on this board today I classify them as junk. I don't think this board is for that kind of stuff. What a waste of time and energy.

Referencing Gary 19, Oct 10:
In general you mention Division Major + ( as top of the line) there is no discussion regarding age for for any division and there should be. Why should the 65+ in any division be restricted to ONE HR it would make sence to me that the 65"s have no restrictions at all. How many HR's would the average 65+ team hit? This would hold true to a team that even loaded up with power. 300' now that's a distance for anyone.

Discussion: Changes

Here we go again. It apears that each age group should have their on rules, similar to our associations. My comments are for the 65+ age group and are mine only. From what I have read over the years most of the discussion to change things are from the youner age groups. At 65+ we just want to play and if someone can hit the ball for distance please don't take that away from him.
First my team plays with our normal guys and we only pick up someone when we have no other
choice, we believe that we can play better with someone you know and are confident in what each player does.
70 ' bases path: For our age 65 is enough.
Bats: Any bat will do, if I were to hit a ball 300' I'd be happy for a week. Seven (7) home runs would be fine and anything over that we would be happy to take an out or a single.
Pitched ball height: The only thing that will get you is more walks.
Base Stealing: No way

Discussion: Driver's License Determines Residence

All the suggestion are great, however what you are suggesting takes time and time is money. In my other life my company logo was (our most important product is people) and what we did was to use our people to track, status, count, revise etc paper ideas and what is being dicussed here sounds like the kind of work I did. It take time and money. Now the associations will increase the fees to off set this. (NEXT SUGGESTION)

Discussion: Let's Be Honest

Ladies and Gentlemen, If technology changes why won't you let me improve? Woodern bats/ composite bats so what! Most of the changes in the game today are for us (seniors) The discussion today seem to be about the Miken more than other bats. If I can have a good day at the park then that's great for me, and I will be back another day. Once in a while I'll hit a 300' shot and belive me I will think about that hit for a week. As a pitcher I respect anyone who uses a Miken, however not everyone knows how to swing a Miken.

Skins6, I understand where you are, you have a great bat which cost a lot and you want to use it. I'm reading a lot of messages regarding various leagues allowing the use of the Ultra and I hope you find one as I would be interested also. Rod
