There was an unsubstantiated rumor that you could not find The Dirty. I heard from Mike over the weekend. They are in stock and available for anyone that wants to purchase one.

I believe Alan is East of the MS and therefore ineligible to play on a Major+ team West of MS.

Just heard Vern Fowler made the HOF. Great teammate and voracious competitor. Besides a great outfield/pitcher and all-around hitter, he can make some mean elk jerky.

I just heard Rickie Perez has been selected to SSHOF. Great teammate and great competitor. Well deserved honor to a fine gentleman.

I will never forget our year in Seattle. Lipinski was ready to kill us, because we were in the back seat of the van laughing our butts off because Ken was lost trying to get us to BP. I was pretty sure we were going to pull some bench time after the abuse we were giving him, thank goodness we were both having a good tourney.

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Play at first

Because B1 beat the throw, she is " Considered Safe". The Umpire should never POINT OUT a missed base by the offensive team. The defensive team must make a proper appeal that B1 missed first base before she returns to the bag. (NFHS rules 2-1)


Therefore in the thread above runner safe, unless appeal made prior to returning to the base. Because they have instant replay, even though the runner returned, it could be determined that the runner touched only the foot. In my scenario, no instant replay, runner could only be ruled out after regaining the base, if the umpire had interpreted the rule incorrectly and ruling was appealed.

Discussion: Play at first

Only at the LLWS would this have been possible because:

The original call was safe and overturned on replay that the runner did not touch the base. The reason the call was over ruled was because the foot is not part of the bag. Same scenario if you drop a knee on a slide or block the base with your foot on a pick off. (providing you have the ball)

In the world most of live in, your only opportunity would have been as Garocket stated: Umpire ruled safe, defensive player tagged runner prior to returning to the base and appealed runner never touched first. If umpire agreed the runner only touched his foot then the call could be reversed on a misinterpretation of the rule.

Discussion: Las Vegas 60 M+

I told Clatterbaugh, (the other best looking #35 that catches) that surely he bought, the hitter who hit in front of him (Mr. Manassas), dinner at least once every tourney.

I don't think he ever makes an out and is always on base when Clatter is up.

The best part of playing major plus for me is the level of competition. I do not mean to infer that there is not a high level of competition in the other divisions, but if you give a major plus team an extra out, it could mean and did mean the difference between giving up 1 run or 9. Every batter every inning needs to produce, if you give away an at bat, it could mean the difference between scoring 9 or scoring considerably less.

SPA - Line Drive was a scoring machine. Superior was what they always are - never an easy out and fundamentally strong. Hollis had players splitting time with the 50's and still very strong. Edge was only an out away from winning every game, but one.

JBAS looks forward to seeing everyone in Vegas. Like I said this is going to be an EPIC tourney, everyone is going to need to bring their A(+) game.

Bats are manufactured in SC and distribution will be in CA.

Topic: Bats
Discussion: GSC bat

IMHO....because the manufacturers primary business is NASCAR related and not softball, they probably only had one machine tooled to manufacture the prototype. When the prototype was approved, the manufacturer had to order or build more of the machines that produce the bats and the process took longer than expected. I also expect that existing orders from their current clients took precedent over this start up project.

Again this is just speculation, I do not expect to see bats on sale to the public prior to Sept. The last thing GSC should do is take people's money until those shelves are filled with bats.

With a warehouse costing 12-15 grand a month, I expect Steve/Investors are as anxious as the public is. Remember this is California bad publicity is just as good as good publicity, because more people like to gossip than communicate. Just saying...till then swinging THE DIRTY and loving life.
