Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: pitching screens

The thought of placing a screen on the playing field is ludicrous ... Hitting a screen placed on the playing field resulting in a DBO is folly ... Perhaps those who wish to play by these rules can start their own leagues/associations.

Discussion: Update from USSSA National Convention

Crusher ... I have hit pitchers, too, but never on purpose ... If a ball is coming off a bat to quickly, then perhaps something should be done there rather than placing a foreign object in the field of play and then making random rules governing the foreign object.

Crusher ... If you've been a pitcher for such a long time, and have only been hit once, and it was minor, why the need for a screen?

Why don't we play with 12, 13, 14 players? ... Enough to cover all the holes! ... That way, all the proverbial bases will be covered!!! ... Ridiculous!

Gary19 ... You can't play defense against balls hit 350+ feet.

Discussion: AAA Home Runs

Local ... Played against the team that won 60AAA in other tournaments ... Yes, they are a very good team without hitting a bunch of homers ... The team that played against them just ran out of gas and are a legitimate Major team ... If your team is averaging 6 hrs a game, you shouldn't be playing AAA, IMHO ... I have never seen a study indicating that anyone goes up the middle if they can't hit home runs.

Discussion: AAA Home Runs

5Tools ... It's not hard to determine sandbaggers ... For example, if you are playing AAA which allows 3 home runs, and your team is hitting 8, 9, 10 balls out of the park, there is a good chance your team is sandbagging ... See how easy that was?

Discussion: AAA Home Runs

Retired63 ... Couldn't agree with you more ... We played a AAA team in LV who hit 8 out and 6 more lasers off the wall ... There were a number of teams who were similar ... Too many sandbaggers ... Outs are the only way to actually penalize sandbagging teams, and make them at least think about moving up to the next level voluntarily ... Making them walks are a joke.

Discussion: THE NEED FOR SEVEN INNINGS

Gary19 ... There is little reason why we need to wait through, ball one, ball two, ball three, strike one, strike two ... It's slow pitch, for goodness sakes ... You're not going to sneak a fast ball, on the inside corner, knee high past a hitter ... Ever played in a one-pitch tournament? ... An incredible amount of fun ... 45 minute, 7 inning games ... Constant motion ... Love it!

Gary19 ... That's the problem ... Everyone has their own shady of grey ... Come, play ball, have fun, go home ... Don't want another T-shirt, cap, jacket, bag, whatever.

Discussion: Tournament Prizes

"I play softball for the fun of playing, the competition, the comraderie...not for big cash and expensive prizes."

"However, when your team wins it would be nice to come home with something you actually want or something we can use instead of discontinued products that nobody wants to buy."

"Winning a crappy bag that Miken cant sell is insulting to me ..."

So, which is it Doorman??? ... Seems that your initial declaration was false ... How can you go from "playing for fun, etc., not for the big cash and expensive prizes" to being insulted by the prizes???

Either play for all the right reasons you espoused, or take your bat and ball and go home.

Wayne,

I worked for a few years in Lansdowne, but played ball in Howard County with Walker Construction until they folded, and then The Judges Bench softball team.

Hey Wayne ... I used to live in MD until 13 years ago ... Played a lot of softball in and around Howard County ... In what area did you play?
