Hey Mr. Steve well thats good you found out about your foot pain? I know when I had my surgery on my foot it ended up being much better.No sir I have called Mike numerous times and and can't get him...I think Mike kinda stayed in contact with Mark I don't have his # and have never talked with him other than on the field.How's your wife doing Steve?

Discussion: Pitcher's Rule

hitting the ball out the park is part of the game just like anything else though.I dont think your ever going to have it to where somebody's not going to complain.As far as hitting hrs. when my team dont have any to hit I go backside or 5,6 hole. It's big field out there so once the hrs. are gone learn to hit the open field..or as everyone try's to tell the pitcher if you can't hit anything but hrs. find another game to play.

And if you was to go with a floating rubber and you have pitcher's complaining maybe they do need to look for another position.I have watched some guys pitch and the biggest problem I've seen is there still backing up once the ball is hit so it catch's then off balance that's his own fault not the batter or ball.

Discussion: Pitcher's Rule

well like some of you I'm going to throw my 2 cents in...either do one of 2 things,let the pitcher pitch from whatever distance he feels good with as lond as he's from the rubber back not just 56' but wherever he wants.I guess make it a floating rubber.I pitch also and can oitch from whatever distance I need to when I play senior me being a youngster I play outfield.But when I come back home and play with my young team I pitch and cover second after the pitch.Or make wearing protection mandatory.leave the balls and bats alone let us have some fun!!!

Discussion: Florida half Century

Audie,
I sure wish they would do that,I only live 2hours from Jacksonville.I know I enjoyed playing down there even though it was an asa tourney at RingHaver.I thought it was going to be FHC rules so I did'nt even carry my asa bats.But once I got there I knew I had messed up.And I have read up on the way they place the teams and that makes it competitive for everyone and thats what were all looking for anyway.And yes your right if they was to open it up for Ga.& al. it would only make more teams more revenue.I personaly don't have a team but just looking to play.But you guys have many FHC teams that stay in fl. mostly and if they would open it up it would give those teams more players to choose from also.

I sure wish they would let us Ga players play. I have relatives that live down in west palm beach so I called about it.And was told I could play only in that area and not in Jacksonville which is where I was wanting to play.And I could only play in that area when I was actually living there even though I would have a address there along with mine in Ga.

Discussion: Up the Middle

the one I have is a hockey type helmet it gives plenty of coverage and it's fairly light also.It would take some getting use to but very doable I think.The knee guards I have are little league baseball type.so there short but fit tight enough they would'nt hender running much.

I would sure wear the equipment if it was mandatory...but if they ever put a screen on the infield my playing days are over.I think the equipment thing would be a good thing.I have in fact bought all the equip. for that purpose but dont have the nerve to wear it....lol

Discussion: Up the Middle

I think most will agree that if a pitcher gets a batter on a full count and on his next pitch he leave's it hanging outside one of 2 things may happen it's either a good backside hot or it coming right back up the middle.I have'nt played senior ball but one yr. and loved everytime I got the chance to play but me being young I played the outfield.But I love pitching, when I play with the young guys I pitch because they have young guys for the outfield.I guess what I'm trying to say is in my opinion I think it's respect more than anything else that stops so much hitting up middle in senior ball or I would like to think so.Any batter can come up with a full count and ypu know with the next pitch your going to swing and if your thinking pull and it's outside pitchers beware!!

Discussion: Timing

another way timing plays a big part for me anyway...is when I want to go backside I hold back just a second longer and go backside without having too shift my feet.Out front for power and hesitate a second for opposite field.

Discussion: Timing

oh yeah you are correct......as you said there's many things involved.And a lot of bp usually takes care of most.But I found out that bp can help if your looking to get better but not if your going to do the samething over and over.When you take bp do it with someone that can watch you and help make adjustments that help.

Discussion: Timing

lol timing is everything even in slow pitch as far as I'm concerned.Getting out front and you have to time the pitch.Yes it's slow pitch,but watching the ball and throwing your hands and timing play a big part in hitting hard to me anyway.

Discussion: BAN THE ULTRA

dirty
I do care about the team I play on and the team I'm playing against and would never intentionally try and hurt anyone so dont assume that I dont care.And I pitched when I was young from b ball to now in senior.But me being a youngster the teams that I play on put me back in the outfield but dont thin k for a minute if they need me to pitch I'll be there.In over 30yrs. and been took out by being hit only 1 time and that was when I was much younger.And yes I know it can happen at anytime but that can happen with any bat and ball combination.
