Discussion: YOU MAKE THE CALL #5

Freddie....the umpire called the runner out at first on a play 7 - 6 - 3 - 1. Actually the batter was out for going into the dugout as well. Since the 3rd out was made on a force play at 1st, the 5th run did not count. The umpire reversed their original call of the 5th run scoring to end the inning and the team only recorded 4 runs for the inning. Great point by ShaneV. I have seen the same type of call when a batter hits a homerun with two outs and the runners do not advance to the next base.

Discussion: You make the call #4

There are two outs. The runner from 2nd going to 3rd is out on a force play. The runner headed for home plate is out on a force play once the runner passes the commit line and the throw goes to the catcher. Now watch the runner on 1st head to third in all of the commotion and is tagged out sliding into 3rd.

Discussion: YOU MAKE THE CALL #5

Bases loaded loaded and two outs. The 5th run is standing on 3rd base. The batter hits a single to the outfield and the umpire declares the 5th run scores. The batter runs halfway to first base and turns to go into their dugout. The defensive team takes the ball and tags 1st base. Does the 5th run score? This actually happened in a game.

Discussion: TOP GUN NATIONAL QUALIFIER - MAY 2nd & 3rd

Hey OTE24

Nate has been talking with the City of Escondido and will emphasize the need for good playing fields. Unfortunately at the last tournament, the City dragged the fields right after the rain while the fields were still wet. Hope you guys come down and play again in May. With good weather, the fields should be in good condition. Unfortunately we can't do much with the outfields.

Discussion: Mesquite Tourney

I would have to second all of the previous e-mails. We played all of our games in St. George. Special recognition should go out to the St. George Park Staff that did such an incredible job maintaining a beautiful complex. The staff would drag and water the fields in between each game. I can see why players enjoy playing in the Huntsman games. A special thank you to David Dowell, serving as the Tournament Director at our complex for once again doing a great job in managing the operation. A final thank you to Terry and Fran for putting on a first class tournament. The Spring Worlds will serve as the spring board for other successful this season. To Geno and Max, congratulations on a well deserved victory over a tough field of teams in a strong division.

Discussion: Craig Gahring, Another good friend lost

Words cannot express the saddness that my family, the players and families of Top Gun Softball and the Senior Softball community feel at the loss of a friend, teammate and fellow competitor. To Craig's family we extend our thoughts and prayers on the loss of a quality individual. Craig's wife Sue will be communicating with his friends in senior softball as time permits. I know that I'll miss seeing Craig on the field for many years to come.

Discussion: HR'S

Hey Bull....I understand the interest in playing with your friends rather than travel 1000 miles to a tournament. The 3 homerun rule works well if a AAA team has only one or two home run hitters. Many teams will not pitch to a HR hitter more than once if they are consistently banging them out . The rub comes from AAA teams that have 7 or 8 homerun hitters. If you have a team that can hit 8+ homeruns in a game, you should be a major or major+ team. The AA division has 1 homerun and an out after that. The AA division is a very competitive division and is not filled with HR hitters. The AAA division is much the same as the AA division in that the homerun hitters are given a shot to hit 3 homeruns in a game. The only difference is that with the old rule, the hitter was credited with a single or the 1 + 1 rule. I have seen some AAA teams walkaway with 10+ homerun in a game. The key in my opinion is balance throughout all divisions. Every division should be defined by certain perameters. If you are a homerun hitting team, play in the Major and Major+ divisions. If you are primarily a singles hitting team than the AAA or AA division is right for you. If your team has one or two homerun hitters, you are in the right division and good luck in the season. Bull...good luck to you and your teammates from New Mexico. Have a great season.

Hey JamesLG.....unfortunately many of the big homerun hitting teams really don't surface until September just in time to qualify for the Worlds in October.

Discussion: HR'S

The homerun rule is a great way to balance out the league. If you are a home run hitter, I'm sure there are a lot of Major and Major+ teams that would like to add you to their roster. My 55+ AAA team has been victimized by the new rules. We lost a tournament in Palm Springs to a DBO homerun in the last inning. But in looking at the big picture, players should play at the level they are capable of. If you are a homerun hitter and want to hit homeruns, than join the Major and Major+ divisions. There are plenty of teams to go around. The new rule now places an added strategy in the game. Save your homeruns until the last inning or run the risk of ending the game with a DBO homerun. I'm impressed with the calibur of players playing senior softball and their uncanny ability to place their hits where they want to, when they want to. This rule does not mean it is open season on pitchers, but actually puts the whole field into play, not just the homerun fence. IMO this rule makes it competitive in the AAA division.

Discussion: A simple

Yes....Of the 75% that responded in objection to the new HR rule, what is the demographics? I'm a 55 AAA player and I like the rule. Responses should include the age group and division you play in. Let's see if we have a good cross section of responses. Or... are the responses heavily weighted to one age group or division?
