Discussion: Catcher's verbal interference

It clearly States (at least in NSA) that verbal interference can be called not only at the plate, but by base coaches and opposing teams members on the field or on the bench....If in the umpires judgement it is an effort to confuse or batters or base runners.

Just got some new info from a local park director on a new bat company. He says the senior bat they are selling is as hot as the original gray ultra or the titanium....hesitate to buy the bat if its that hot, fearing it will be banned in a month like the gray ultra.......not sure if I can mention it on this site...I guess all they can do is delete it.....has anyone had any experience with Monsta Athletics senior bat 1.21bpf...monstaathletics.com

Thanks Staff.......I Umpired (the 65's n 70's)and played 55's in the Brickyard last year and was glad to see Dave Dowell in town to oversee the tournament. Wish other assoc. would follow your lead.

(For SSUSA Staff) I know you can't answer for SPA.....but... do you review and OK all local TD's rules that differ from what the SSUSA rule book states? Your scenario IS rare, as you stated, but a more common scenario would be aroung 12 to 15 after 5, times up and no open inning has been played?...Game called.. THIS REALLY HAPPENED(at a qualifier)....BUT this was the real good one.....TD rules stated 20 runs after 3, 15 after 4 or 10 after 5 as a RR limit. Since the situation never came up, nobody said anything. I was hoping someone would score 20 in 3. ;}

Without mentioning the teams.. I'll just say it was a large tournament in Ohio(SPA). We argued because we were behind,,,,,,,the other team said nothing of course because it was hot and they were ahead. As I discussed the absence of the open inning with the umpire, he brought out a sheet of TD's rules that were to overide the sponsoring Associations rules. And NO Omar he claimed he made no mistake. Lesson learned......read all the material in the Mgrs. packet and voice concerns before the tournament begins. The way we handle it in our leagues is to have the umpire anounce (with 10 min. to go) that we will finish this inning and go to the open. Heck I wouldn't have minded if they flip flopped in the open to save time....but that's just another argument waiting to happen. "Keep on Playin"

One other issue that get's me PO'd.....run rules on games with time limits, creates games where you may ever see the OPEN INNING...that should never happen...1 and 1 should speed the game up and allow for the open inning....I can't count on 2 hands how many times we put up big #'s in the open to come from behind to win. That's a rush......Was never so PO'd to have a game called on time limit, down 10 and not given the chance for an open inning. My 2 cents.

As a player and umpire, I have no problem with the 1 and 1 count, for the following reasons.
As a hitter:Pitchers idealy want to get ahead in the count. With 1 and 1 the first pitch is critical to them and as a batter I'm prepared prepared to jump on the first pitch. If not (and its a strike) I'm behind and will have to hit something close, that I may not want to hit.
With a full count to work with, as a hitter I will at least wait for 1 strike and at bats are usually longer. (It IS a hitters game).
As an umpire: 1 and 1 makes hitters more aggressive and does speed up the game. We are usually paid on a per game scale and my $17 an hr game now becomes approx $11 for games going an hr, and a half......not many of you would like that kind of cut in pay.
Most seniors do not like playin after dark and the host cities want you out having dinner and spending $$$$. Just my 2cents........besides we aren't gonna quit playin either way!!
