Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Old Spice Presents: You make the call, Part 574

NOW THAT WUD BE A TOUGH ONE TO CALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!..I believe it wud be runner interference and the closest runner to home wud be called out....also the runner committing the interference shud be called out.....The catcher obviously was unaware the runner had missed the plate so he was trying to tag the incoming runner......and the first runner must have hit the catcher hard enough to jar the ball loose thus the interference from behind the catcher...possible judgement call on the second runner by umpire if he thought the 1st interfered with the catcher enough to prevent the 2nd runner from being out....

Discussion: High tourney entry fees and weak prizes...

ALL RIGHT GUYS!!!! THIS HAS BEEN DISCUSSED MANY TIMES BEFORE!!!!!!! ...SSUSA IS THE BEST ASSOCIATION IN SENIOR BALL HANDS DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THOSE PRESENTING THESE TOURNEYS ARE PRETTY STRAIGHT FORWARD IN THEIR APPROACH TO US PLAYERS THAT THEY ARE OUT THERE TO MAKE MONEY AS AT THIS STAGE IN LIFE THE SETUP OF THESE GAMES IS THEIR JOB!!!!..AND I FOR ONE THINK THEY DO AN EXCELLENT JOB!!!! THINK ABOUT ALL THEY HAVE TO DO TO MAKE IT HAPPEN....THERE MIGHT BE 222 TEAMS IN RENO BUT THERE ARE IN THE MENS ONLY APPROX 20 SEPARATE DIVISIONS..OF THOSE 222TEAMS..THATS 20 1STS..SECOND AND THIRDS....FIELD SET UP IN DIFFERENT LOCATIONS ALL OVER THE AREA AROUND RENO /SPARKS AND CARSON CITY...UMPIRES FOR ALL THE GAMES /FIELD GENERALS FOR EACH COMPLEX...ALL THAT THIS ENTAILS IS MIND BOGGLING TO ME!!!! AND I'M SURE I HAVEN'T EVEN TOUCHED ON ALL THE PARTICULARS....AGAIN THEY DO A GREAT JOB OF IT!!!(MY OPINION)......LOCAL TOURNEYS OF 10-15 TEAMS CAN BE A NIGHTMARE....JUST ADD 200 MORE TEAMS TO THAT?????????????.....DAVE /TERRY /FRAN.....YOU DO A GREAT JOB!!!!....AND PLEASE CONTINUE TO DO SO...AS THIS TOURNEY THING IS MY DRIVING FORCE(OTHER THAN FAMILY) AT THIS POINT IN LIFE!!!!.DOKER

Discussion: Is it fair............

is gary19 and dirty the same person?????...are you only on this site to stir up trouble????/...Kenny has been totally honest with all of us on the team and we understand his problem and help when we can....there is no controversy whatsoever on our team about Kenny!!!! we are all great friends and will remain that way as long as we are alive!!!! We definitely have missed his presence at the tourneys we've played as he is our spark plug and MAN who keeps us loose which makes us play better in the long run....KENNY 'we love you man'

Discussion: Are some Positions more important than others?

Most important position???? pitcher/shortstop and all outfield positions...first base ,second and third in that order...a catcher who can play like a first baseman is a plus.....also it does make a difference in what division you are playing in.....double AA needs a good infield more than a triple AAA and Major/Major+..where a good fast outfield is more important...as there are fewer balls hit down to the infield.....doker

Discussion: Something I've been wondering about for a while.....

Hey Maverick and pitcher55....i guess you haven't bought a bat lately..as the senior bats are approx $100 cheaper than the so called 1.20 legal bats...all the good ones are $299+ and seniors are under $200...and there are no statistics saying more people are injured using the senior bats....in the younger age groups they just doctor their bats to react the same as the senior bats...thus some have the hot bat and others don't....using the senior bats at least evens the playing field as everyone has the hot bat!!!!!!!.....maybe using the 52-275 ball that maddog has been talking about wud dumb it down a bit....we used that ball this weekend in georgetown/tx...and it seemed to be slower thru the infield but still flew if you hit it right....again tho there are really no statistics verifying that using the hotter bats creates more injuries at least not in our senior tourneys....just my two cents...doker

Discussion: A baserunner giving himself up and leaving field after being declared safe

HEY GUYS...IF THE UMPIRE SAID THAT TIME HAD BEEN CALLED AND THE RUNNER HAD NOT ENTERED THE DUGOUT..HE IS ALLOWED TO WALK RUN OR CRAWL BACK TO SECOND AND IS SAFE....APPEAL OR NO APPEAL.....IF NO TIME HAD BEEN CALLED THEN THE FIELDING TEAM WUD HAV TO TAG HIM OUT...BASE PATHS ARE MADE BY THE RUNNER AS LONG AS NO ONE WAS TRYING TO TAG HIM...HE ACTUALLY CUD HAVE GONE BACK TO THIRD BASE SINCE IT WAS CLOSER(AGAIN IF NO TIME WAS CALLED)AND WUD STILL BE SAFE...BUT YOUR SCENARIO SEEMS TO INDICATE THAT THE UMP CALLED TIME...WHICH MAKES HIS CALL CORRECT!!!!!!! JUST MY TWO CENTS...DOKER...25PLUS YEAR UMPIRE!!!!
