At my request, "Broadway" above gave me permission to post a review of her play. I am a some-time manager of teams on which she has played. Broadway is an amazing athletic, intelligent 1B woman and shortfielder. I love it when she is playing either of these positions on teams I am managing. Broadway does play other positions well too. Broadway is also a "team player." She is easy to get along with and is always cheerful and enthused for the team's play and her play. She owns her mistakes (a little too self-deprecatingly, IMO) and never criticizes others. I do not think her sense of humor is warped. It's fun! If you sign Broadway, I doubt you will be sorry.

Discussion: where are all the pitchers

Someone please check my assumptions:
=======
Major League Baseball
=======
exit speed, well hit baseball = 100 to 120 mph
distance to pitcher's mound = 60 feet

time to react (conservative estimate) = 60 / 100 * 3600/5280 = 0.41 sec


=======
Slow pitch Softball
=======
exit speed, well hit softball = 90+ mph
distance to pitcher's mound = 50 feet

Slow pitch softball time to react = 50/90*3600/5280 = 0.38 sec


So far it seems a 50+year old, amateur softball pitcher's reflexes have to be on a par with a 20-something major leaguer's. Given how major league pitchers at times are hit by a line drive, the chances of injury in senior softball seem to be foreseeable. Requiring the masks makes sense to me.

Thank you. I have written nsga.org (Senior Games; email nsga@nsga.org) and the ASA (whose rules are used in some senior events; email info@softball.org), asking them to consider the rule change SSUSA adopted. I hope others might write so all may play safely, fairly and without fear of liability.

Can someone please explain to which senior tournaments SSUSA rules apply? E.g. do they apply to Senior Olympics? Thank you.
