Hey Steve, what is the reason for having this Tourney 1st weekend in March ? The weather you had was petty normal for this time of year in those hills.

I see the date has been changed to May 7-8. Last week the Brickyard dates were April 30th & May 1st and I thought the Louisville teams would be able to come,now with it being Ky Derby weekend there's no way!

Corky, on the Tourney schedule the Midwest is listed for Shawnee,KS and Northern Championships in Lansing,MI. Your locations are a lot better for us, where are you getting your info?

Discussion: Call at 1st base

The rule states runner must touch outside bag if there is a play on him, so in this case runner should be able to touch either base and be safe because fielder did not throw ball to 1st. that's the way I read the rule.

Discussion: Chattanooga in August

How many 60 Major teams are going to this event? I've hear that Herb does not rate teams untill after the seeding games and this could be a big mess. If a team gets hot for a game or 2 a team thats rated M could be moved to M+ for Tourney. What have you guys hear about this, I really like Mr Oliver and he has done a lot for Senior ball but feel a team should know before hand what division they will be in.

Discussion: what will you

I have no problem with the 44x375 ball but feel no ball hotter should be used with the senior bats. The only rule talked about on here if applied would cause me to stop playing is a screen!!

Discussion: Running in the Batters Box

With all the discussion on here about safety for Pitchers what are your thought about running in the box? We keep moving the rubber back so pitcher will be futher from Batter but some runners will be 3-5 feet in front of plate when they hit the ball and the Umps very seldom call him out. A lot of the wicked shots I have seen come from this. Pitcher throws ball a foot short and thinks no way batter can hit it hard,relaxes and then a rocket is coming at him. Some batters take one step and hit and this does not seem so bad but the ones that run 3-5 steps and end up way in front of plate I feel should be addressed. BTW we have a couple of guys on our team that does this.

Discussion: To screen or not to screen... (Continued)

None of us wants to hit Crappy balls Joe,but if I remember right last fall there were a tourney in Vegas and a real hot ball was used and that's what started this stuff about screens and some wanting a more balance game. I'm fine with the 44x375 ball but nothing hotter than that should ever be used with the senior bats,but also feel that a toned down ball would be better. Its crazy that a Pitcher makes a good pitch and batter miss hits ball and it still goes out of ballpark.

Joe,whether we like it or not Liability is a big concern for SSUSA-SPA etc in today's world. I do not know if the 52x275 ball is the answer or not but one thing I do know and that's a screen is not because most good defensive Pitchers will not play. They love to field their position as much as you like to hit a ball out of sight and do not want to hide behine a screen. One Question I have is you say that a great majority agree with you,do they not post on here?
I don't know if your last sentence was directed at me but I'm player/manger play 3rd base 60M and love and understand our senior game as much as anyone and do not let my ego get in the way of common sense.

Hey guys lets just back off,enistein is not going to change his mind. The common sense thing to do is go to the 52-275 ball that will protect the whole infield and the HR hitters will still hit thier's. Putting up a screen would change the game why to much. We need to let Terry H and others know our feeling and Joe and the other 5% of senior players that want the hot ball will whine some but will join the fun!
