gary you can go 1 of 2 ways.....

sort out the age groups by skill of the players...then draft them blindly out of a hat or such..example..put all the M+/M together and draft those first...then AAA/AA players.....then draft rec players...do this for each age grouping......might want to sort by position also to even it out......at least for pitchers...

or straight out name draft.....this ok if all the coaches know the players...hold a tryout for new guys so all the coaches can see the new guys.....to me this takes way more time as you need a board to watch who has been drafted......

Discussion: When Is It Bat Altering?

otay ju25......yes i bought a pair when they first came out....didn't see any difference personally...can see where they might help tho...by getting the bat out of the deep v between the thumb and first finger.....

Discussion: When Is It Bat Altering?

bruce they actually have weighted batting gloves(fingerless)....wade boggs endorses a pair....you put up to 8 oz in them....they are mostly for workout,but i wouldn't see a prol with using them if ya want.....i use them when i do my macenko bat speed drill,hitting off a tee..and sometimes when doing live bp......

ju25...touching a bat to make its performance better is illegal..and that is to include rolling of any sort....rolling will enhance the sweet spot of a bat by making it larger..hence the performance enhancing....

Discussion: 1 and 1 pitch count

mmmm...how many still play young guy ball...if you do you will be playing 1-1 count as they all are doing that now and have been for a few years.....what is really wrong with a 1-1 count...oh i see...some superstars want the perfect pitch to drive....since it is already a hitters game why do they need even more of an advantage....let the pitcher in the game and have him/her become part of it instead of them just being a pitching machine for the batters......i don't care if it does or don't speed the game up...lets have a 1-1 count.....

Discussion: Las Vegas World ( batters box )

really guys..whinging about the size of the batters box,which has been the same since moses was playing softball......why don't we just give ya's a tee and let ya hit off that...hell you could set it up so you can blast away....it is already a hitters game..let the pitchers have some say in the game....

Discussion: Fairness in Ratings

would like to add to this....in 2001 we started as a 50 aa team(what ya did back then...topgun shuttermart)...we didn't win anything of importance till july that year and that was just a qualifier..6-8 teams if i remember right....well we jumped to AAA b/c a team(topgun 2) wrote a letter to sacramento and said we needed to be AAA and they should be AA(they were promoted that year) as we beat them once or twice in non-sanction tourneys.....we had put our money in for the westerns that year(first year of them)only to be told we now had to play as AAA....we had no other qual tourneys to use to add people.....at first we told sacramento to pack sand...then relented b/c we would of been done for the year....well we went to the westerns and lo and behold we won...all close games...the other team didn't bother going but went to vegas that year as AA and runruled everyone to win it all....we did finish 2nd to the team we beat in the westerns.....so we did prove we were good enough and by the 1st of nov we were rated major.....AA to major in less then a year.....


2nd bump was with a team here in texas...we were a AA team that won our state tourney (5 teams)..and were immediately jumped to AAA...we never finished in the top half of any major tourney after that.....the TD is the one who pushed us up...he had a prol with us i guess.....

Discussion: You Make the Call - Crash at Second Base

fred on the veering off sets the runner up for being called for interference also.....the runner should go to the base directly and that is all his obligation is....he doesn't have to duck or slide..it is up to the fielder's to get the throw over to first.....

Discussion: Ball Fair or Foul???

not sure where you saw this..but all situations you have posted should be called fair balls...if not your umpire is not educated in the rules of ball....and all calls will be for softball or baseball......doesn't matter......
