Discussion: BRING YOUR LONGJOHNS TO THE TOC

Ha! The dome we practice in never gets to 60. Most mornings you can see your breath but most of us still wear shorts. The TOC in Florida will still be a treat for many of us from the N.E. Good luck to all - arrive safely - play hard.

Hope you boys from the Middle Atlantic Conference all make it out OK. Way up here in Northwestern NY we're ready to play the TOC - but I guess we don't get as much snow as you anymore...

Discussion: Flared or cone knob ???

#6 and guys - Thanks. I was made to take a single layer of tape off my bat during a tourney game (in Canada) and it ruined the underlying grip beneath for the rest of the weekend.
I will try this cone at the cages - I drop 1 finger now and would like it even higher.

Discussion: Masks or Helmets

Nobody wants a pitcher to get hurt and it's not "unmanly" to choose to use personal protection devices - just a preference. I would like to see our pitchers use something - our team would buy it for them - but ultimately, it's their choice.
Without turning this excellent thread into an advertisement - can someone give us an example of what would be considered "acceptable headgear" under this rule?
I'd really like our pitchers to consider it.
Thanks.

Is it illegal to have more than 2 layers of tape but not illegal to use things like these?? I'm not against either but this seems inconsistant to me.

Yeah. It's like the game of "RISK" where you can only re-inforce with an army from a touching province.

Ceres-nope-play 3B and joke was meant for me and my teammates- we still have fun and don't need anybody hurt. Was hit in the cheekbone with a bad hop earlier this year but got my smile back when SS told me - could have been worse - you could have pooped your pants. Called me chknsht and told me to OLE' the next high bounce.
E4 - chill out - or FO - it's not always about you.

Discussion: Cut-off

Defensively, there are OFs with rocket arms and OFs with less. Mikens/etc. make us play deep so hitting cutoffs going home is usually preferred but direct to 2nd and 3rd are usually required in AAA and Major. Throwing out runners is still fun.
Offensively, if you're not sure about the arms in their outfield, there's only one way to find out. Just don't wait for the most critical runner of the game to do it.
Beating a tag is still fun, too.

SNO195 if you are NJHitmen55, we played some fun games AAA in CapeMay. I play OF & live in NY. Many of my buds are going down to play 60's but I'm 57. LF/3B/RCF and would want to be released back to my team after this tourney. I'm sure Homer will be there, too.

Discussion: pitcher protection rule new definition

Curty- your pitcher Harvey is the antidote to the PPR rule. He should run a clinic. The way he plays "D" he wants you to hit towards him and he'll get you out if you do.
He pitches from deep behind the rubber. He mixes his pitches. He let's the middle infielders play more towards their holes and he covers 2nd & 1st.
We had a great time playing with you guys - fun venue. Your Baystate Bombers are all class acts and very good players.

Discussion: Teams in Rochester ny

Rochester needs a good women's senior team. We've got several good men's travelling teams.
Rochester has 2 softball seasons. The summer sessions organize in April and play May through August, and the fall sessions play September into early November. The senior (50 & over) Mecca is at the Irondequoit Winton & Empire facilities (turf) but I don't believe there are any women's senior teams. There are many co-ed leagues at the Cobbs Hill & Sportspark complexes. You usually need to reserve a position in your league of choice with payment and rosters in advance. (Get a good sponsor to cover the league fees and some numbered uniforms.)
Hope you find a place to play.

Discussion: Black home plate mat moves

Some great pitchers are able to take advantage of the slightest (1") askew slant to the unattached mats. They instruct their catchers NOT to straighten them out unless the ump notices. Raining a deep one in on the hands can be very effective. (These guys are good.)
