Discussion: Waiver or not to waiver...

Joe,

I don't know why you want to bring me into your conversations but Mr. Wizard I have said the bat and Stote ball are fine by me. So lets play. Oh by the way with home run limits and then outs this year so there is your game, set and match. Keep on smiling Wiz.

Joe,

Go easy on the dead jokes as I have received two e-mails from players one lost his son and the other his brother in Iraq and they are not amused.

Smiling watching you the Wizard try to weave your magic with all the back pedaling, ducking and darting about your comment. Remember behind your curtain you can fool some of the people some of the time but not all the people all the time. Keep smiling.

Joe,

Quote "What is the big deal about somebody getting killed" plain and simple Wizard. You can try and hide behind the curtain but it is there for everyone to read.

I also agree there is risk in every thing we do hell when I'm bass fishing I could drown. When I'm eating I could choke and on and on.

Joe,

It is a big deal when somebody dies. With comments like that no wonder some people like Garocket feel the way they do.

One question would you say and feel the same way if it was your team mate?
I can hear you now" What is the hold up he's dead drag him off the field so we can finish our game".

I for one take exception to that comment. It shows the whole softball community what kind of person you really are. I believe you owe all of softball an apology.

If you really want to know the legal aspects ask Kevin I'm sure he would have a good idea about the waiver.

southpaw,

Thank you for the post. It got me thinking about the old days and how much it has changed both good and bad.

I still believe this game is for any one that wants to play and enjoy no matter what the skill level.

Like I have always said in the end it's only a game and the people you meet and the friends you make while playing is what really means something

Good luck to you and the team this year.

Bruce,

A couple of others I forgot and there is probaly more is no classification for teams and you had to win a Metro, State or Regional to qualify for the Nationals.

Then they started building new parks and re-doing the other parks moving home plate back 10' to allow us to play slo-pitch on them with a fence. A lot of our city parks today still have no fences but very little softball is played there anymore.

I agree Bruce. I also played a little modified and also played a little 16".

Dirty 90% of our parks in and around Indy were open diamonds. Only most of fast pitch parks had short fences such as Metro and Municipal Stadiums.
So contrary to your believe you know everything there is about softball I guess you don't.

You miss the point softballis a Game. Nobody makes a living playing Senior Softball and the game is for eveyone at all levels that wants to play.
You choose not to attend tourneys but still play leagues and thats o.k.

You say you don't want to play in 2 or 3 team tourneys so play AA or AAA where there are more teams. I'm sure with your ability and knowledge a team could use you. I know a few coaches and if you want e-mail me and I'll give you their numbers. Hope to see you participating soon.

I have always enjoyed the comments about changing the game. Since coming from fast pitch to slow pitch lets see what may have changed;

Bats, balls, base distance, pitcher distance, from open fields(no fences) to 265' fences to 275' to 285' to 300' to 325'. Pitching height, unlimited foul balls and so on.

So where would we be today without changes.
1. wood bats 2. unlimited arch 3.unlimited foul balls 4. no fences 5. blue dot type ball(white) 5. 60' bases
6.unlimited home runs 7. no run per inning rule 8. no time limit 9. 43' to 45' pitching distance, etc.

So is change good or bad you be the judge.

Bruce,

I'm with you. Unless you are an AA or AAA team around here very few tourneys unless you want to drive 4 to 6 hrs. Which I will and do. :)
