Discussion: Interference

I'd like to add if the runner was using "descriptive" language, meaning f-bombs, that were loud and clear I'd throw him out. No place in the game for someone screaming language like that out.

The umpire was correct except for one thing. Based on your scenario it should be first and second with two outs instead of first and third. The runner that was on second goes back to second--he does not advance to third. This is usssa rule, others may vary

Garocket, with the exception of ssusa staff and perhaps a few other posters you could be right.

Discussion: Why Not Reward Performance?

?, 3 reasons why the Royals and Giants are still playing. 1)pitching 2)defense
3)clutch hitting. It wouldn't surprise me to see a KC-SF world series.

Tate22, USSSA has a similar rule in their NIT's and conference tournaments. By rule, whoever wins the winners bracket is automatically home team for the first game of the championship. If it goes to the 'if' game it's a coin flip. Many like to call that the "Resmondo rule" because when the powerhouse Resmondo teams won the flip they'd always take visitors and score a bunch of runs--many times putting the game out of reach before the other team even batted.

Discussion: WHO ARE CURRENTLY THE MOST POWERFUL HITTERS IN SENIOR SOFTBALL

To answer the original question I would say Bob Woldyke & Vern Hensley are two of the most powerful hitters that I've seen in senior softball today. No doubt there are many others but I admit to being biased since Wally is a former teammate and Vern is a current teammate. After playing against Jose I would definitely say he ranks up there. One he hit against us 2 weeks ago I think is still going!! You could take the middle of their order of any 50 major plus and 55 major plus team and find some pretty powerful hitters. jmho

Both scenarios are timing plays. If the runner at third crosses the scoring line before the out is recorded then run scores. If he doesn't then no run. In hurdlers scenario suppose the umpire calls the runner out for leaving early at second. That would make it 3 outs. Can they also opt to appeal the runner at third left early?

Curty if I read you correctly the third baseman had the ball, ran at the runner(presumably toward home) and in doing so the runner crossed the commit line. Then the runner reversed direction and in doing so ran into the player who had the ball. Did the third baseman have the ball? Did the runner who had crossed the commit line reverse direction and go back across the commit line?

Steve I'll definitely take your word for it. I suspect many players in that scenario would go for a tag strictly by instinct. It sounds like you did the proper thing and from other posters have stated Webbie turned away to avoid his teammate. Odd play for sure!!

The rule states a runner can't be tagged out once he/she passes the commit line. If that happens the runner is automatically safe and the play is still live. Question is if said rule also applies to an attempted tag.

Discussion: 1 and 1 pitch count

I believe Omar correctly states most hitters don't wait out a full count when batting. Give 'em a senior bat and a lively ball, they want to hit!! By that alone games wouldn't necessarily go faster. In addition good teams will still get their share of hits & still score their share of runs. Defensive teams will still make errors in the field. And don't forget between innings teams will more often than not slowly drag in from the field and slowly drag out to the field--especially on a hot day. I don't believe playing 3-2 would make much if any difference in speeding up the senior game. USSSA switched from 4-3 to 3-2 in the early 1990's with the intent to speed up the game. They found that it did no such thing.

Webbie not seeing the play it's hard to discern what happened. What's interesting about this play you described is you were in the "no tag zone" so to speak. I don't know the SSUSA rule on this (or if there is one) but if your trying to score in the "no tag zone" and the defensive player attempts to tag you which alters your route to the scoring line one might think it's defensive obstruction since he's not allowed to tag you. I'm not sure however.

Congrats to Timmy, Keith, Cupp, Cushie, Wally, Dougie, Paul, Marv, Jimmy O and the rest of DLB. I admit I was envious watching you guys in the final game but it's always a pleasure to watch the game played the right way and you guys exemplified that. Congrats also to TSC for making a great run.

In young mans ball, USSSA specifically, it's legal. I might be mistaken on this but in SSUSA I believe it's an out.
