Discussion: Should Umpires Be More Aggresive to inventory Bats before the game

Thanks BruceinGA, and Airbosn......interesting association rule. Anyone know if these associations have been implementing these rules? Do players adhere to this rule?

OK mad dog so disciplinary measures are more of a necessity. auto ejection for player using the illegal bat and owner of said bat, and to extend the ejection to the coach of the team. This could lead to three immediate ejections. It makes sense to me, it makes a lot of sense. This is more the actions senior softball officials need to take to protect the integrity of the game and enhance the safety of our players. Anyone else can add to ways we can rid the use of illegal bats?

Do you think disciplinary measures would work. For example lets say in the third inning the catcher finds batter using illegal bat. The official acknowledges the illegal bat thus the loses runs. Take a run or two away from the team that allowed their player to use an illegal bat. Your thoughts

Rooster10 Exactly my point....eight players on one team are all in agreement to use illegal bats. So how can we stop this from happening? How can we protect the integrity of the game and enhance the safety of our players?

Taits.... Maybe one more rule will protect the integrity of the game and enhance the safety of our players. A Rule gets implemented,responsibilities rarely do. Your thoughts....

So to recap a possible way to create a rule to reduce the use of illegal bats is to have "catchers Only RULE" have the responsibility for the sake of his or her team to be on the lookout for the use of illegal/altered bats. Lets think about how often the catcher is allowed to challenge a bat. HHHmmmm....Lets say the catcher after viewing the top 9 batters is allowed a one time challenge to the official.....Your thoughts......

Taits..... unique concepts...."The sound resinous",and "by ball bounce" from a stocked bat. Interesting, this could be ways to begin the challenge for an official to inspect.

Thanks for your feedback Airbosn. So officials are not inspecting bats. I'd like to think that "good catchers" are on the lookout for altered bats. I've never in a league game seen anyone address to official the use of altered bats. I do here players come back to their own team bench and wisper to their own players that opposing bats are altered. hhhmmmm. If a catcher is suggested by the SSA to be on the lookout for illegal bats, then it should be in some kind of policy or rule that catchers have this additional requirement to report altered/illegal bats to officials during the course of the game. If we continue to make players responsible to report altered bats to the officials,,,,,, Remember the pinetar incedent with the Yankees and Royals where Craig Nettles-NYY reported to the officials that George Brett had too much pinetar on his bat after he hit a home run. Tempers flared.....It wasn't a way to do business. Your thoughts.......

Stetch14 ok on shaved, or loaded. I still feel umpires should go through some sort of inspection before the game. To slow down the use of illegal bats. Same concept when Police car sits in a hidden spot off a highway. The fact that police are looking, speeders slow down. In this case players know umps are not looking, or are they?

md the bats I saw are on the 2009 illegal list. I never watched if those bats were used for batting practice or used in the game. My question for discussion is directed to Umpire duties. I never see umpires directing any concerns wether players actually use illegal bats.

I was in a 3 day weekend tournament in PA, I took a quick look at bats leaning against the fences of opposing side, and noticed a couple of illegal bats. Why can't unpires take a quick inventory of bats used before the game starts?
