Discussion: Threw it at the wall and It went splat.........

I was the pitcher that took it off the shin, broke the bone found out yesterday, I don't like the rule, today I have only felt that 1 time it was done intentionally but it wasnt this weekend. We all know with our ability we can hit the ball most anywere, when a batter has 2 strikes on him he wants to put the ball in play. I personally don't think you can do anything, you can't take a step back in technology by changing bats and balls, just play the game. I have a defibulator in me, I ware a pad over the machine, if I take one there by by, put thats my call, and if it happens I would say that it happend to me with a smile on my face.

And to the above post, there we many great plays made by pitchers this weekend, some of them the bullets but they were caught.

We as adults should make our own decision when it time to stop pitching and become a catcher, last year alone I got hit at least 6 times either in my arm head neck ankle you name it, and guess what I want to pitch again against the Mavericks tonight if I could.

Maybe some new protective equipment, but I wouldn't trade this for the World.

Now if the days come were I feel that it was done intentionally, well lets just say the the Siclian in me would come out.

In 2007 teams that won Vegas Worlds didn"t get the invite to the TOC, I think I recall that these teams would be inviteded to the 2009 TOC is that correct.

Discussion: Has Anyone Tracked Where The Offensive Team Hits The ball

Audieh, Mike P Pitcher from Doubleplay, I have seen a big differnece from AAA to Major, I see more HRs to LF and LC then I did in AAA, example we played this weekend and we were the only Major team the rest were AAA, I saw balls hit up the middle and to the right. The month prior to that we played the WW Worlds Majors and with out Ultras there were an amazon amount of HRs. My 2 cents

See you in Maui, my 3rd year, what a Blast
