Discussion: Hypothetical on the HR's as outs and singles

I guess what I'm saying is if I was to come up to bat and a have couple guys on and I do have one of those moments I do see why I should be penalized for it. Thats all I'm saying

No lecak I'm not what you call a power hitter I do have my moments...lol. But it's hard to find teams looking to be honest there are many very good players in the Ga area as I'm sure there are everywhere.

I have only played senior ball one yr. but have played softball for over 30.And for the life of me I can't understand whats wrong with hitting hr's? Thats part of the game like anything else. And by making them singles would that also help to protect the pitcher? So thats kinda killing 2 birds with one stone.A lot of us work very hard at learning what pitch to hit and timing for the pitch throwing your hands shifting.etc... for it to be an out.

Hey Dave,
Good to see you on here. It's seems to be hard to find a senior team that needs players unless you know someone, or it has been for me anyway. I sure hope everything works out for ya. And be looking forward to seeing you in Jacksonville in Feb. If there's anything I can do for ya let me know.

I'm 51 and live close to Savannah and I have a buddy that is 50 both of us would like to find a team. I can play the outfield or pitch and have a decent bat, And my firend is an infielder and also can hit very well.We both would be willing to come and try out hot bp whatever it takes to join.I have played one yr. senior ball and enjoyed it. I'm also the kind thats man of my word and dedicated.

Discussion: BAN THE ULTRA

I just dont see why they don't leave well enough alone!!! I do understand why it's some concern about pitchers because I am one also, but at the sametime I'm a grown man and take full responsibility when I go on the mound.And if and when I feel I need to protect myself I have the equip. to do so.(So just leave the bats and balls alone.)
Now u-trip is trying to dumb down the balls.Has anyone or assoc. ever shown the public how many were hurt from the current bat& balls we use now?

Discussion: Why have 11 on defense for 70+ teams?

I know this answer is sounding like I'm trying to be a smart guy but believe me I'm not just trying to understand myself.You say that you think the 11 on defense is to protect the pitcher? Does he play between the batter and the pitcher? if not I don't see where he's protecting anything except a base hit up the middle? Am I thinking correct on this or just talking?And I would also like to say I really enjoy seeing you older guys play when I go to a tourney I'm only 52 and sure hope I can still play like you guys.If the lord willing I guess I will!!

Discussion: New Pitcher Rule

well right now you have to be at least what is it 50' to 56'.what I mean is you can pitch from 50' if you feel comfortable but if not you can pitch from 65' if you can mantain the correct arc. Like most ptichers anyway cover second once they pitch anyway.That way you would'nt have to back step as much.I believe I could pitch form say 60' and still maintain arc and strikes.And if you can't pitch from farther back they have the option to wear whatever they want.This past weekend we were in a young guy tourney and ended up having to play on a baseball field and it had the raised mound.So they used a screen.Once you pitched and start to backup to get set you foind yourselve going up hill and maybe off balance thats when you get hurt.I had to pitch with the screen there and imo only it's not for me it bothered me a lot.

Discussion: New Pitcher Rule

I still say let the pitcher pitch from whatever distance he wants...or either wear protective gear. I mean if you add another infielder thats still not going to stop the pitcher from getting knocked off the mound.And after he's been hit the damage has been done even if you have 10 infielders.I can only answer for me but I like the game the way it is hot bats and all I would just like the option to pitch from where I want.That way I would pitch and not have to backup,just get set! I played htis past weekend where they used a screen and that thing will get someone hurt it gives you a false sence of security and you fine yourselve with your guard down.
