Looking for the best ball for the money for the entire league.

Must be 12" ASA stamped 44/375.

Does Trump make something that would fit the bill.

Anybody got any recommendations

Thanks,

Discussion: I was killed last night.

I wonder if you would still be alive if you had been wearing a mask? This is an equipment issue not a rules issue!!!!!!!

I have seen some guys wearing them and nobody says a word to them. Most of us think that they are smart to do it. I got hit in the mouth with a bad hop while playing baseball and lost teeth, so I have some idea what kind of damage can be done in the blink of an eye and how much pain is involved as well as the recovery time and expenses associated with the injury.

I hope you will take this in the spirit in which it is intended, because I don't want to see anyone get hurt. I also don't want to make changes to the game if we don't have to.

My personal favorite - Don't worry about the horse being blind, just load the wagon!

The older I get the better I was.

Discussion: New Pitcher Rule

If it isn't required most guys won't wear the gear. If the equipment isn't required people will continue to get hurt and the debate will go on and on. After something catastrophic happens some action will probably take place and it will probably be the removal of the high performance bats. So if you want to keep the bats we need to do something soon. Just for the record we played 50 Major + at Winter Nationals and some of the shots that I saw hit up the middle were pretty scarey. The pitcher protection rule did nothing to discourage people from hitting the middle. JMO.

Discussion: New Pitcher Rule

It is called personal protective equipment. It does not matter whether it for work or play the first thing you hear is that it it is cumbersome or uncomfortable. Well so is wearing a cup, but compared to the pain involved with a direct impact the protection seem to be well worth the inconvenience. In industry the first options with regard to safety are to isolate through physical guarding or remove if possible the potential hazard. The last and least effective method of protection is by way of a rule or a procedure. Because we all know that people won't follow the rules or procedures all of the time. So if you want to protect the pitcher put him in the mask and shin guards.

I think that it is really pretty simple. You require the pitcher to wear catchers gear and that is it. If you make it mandatory it takes the whole macho Idon't need a mask and shin guards thing out of the equasion. I have seen guys get hit in the face and I can assure you that it was a life changing event!

Discussion: Base hit rule clarification

Hits and errors are always judgement calls. The key is should the ball have been caught by the fielder. Whether the ball was touched or not does not come into play. If the ball took a bad hop or if the fielder had to dive or make some other type of extra ordinary effort then it is a base hit. If the play should have been made, such as a routine ground ball through the between the legs, even if not touched it would be an error. Hope this helps. This is how we have always tried to score it
