Discussion: players please respond to rule changes

dbax..not even gonna respond to the dik........

steve yes if you do play in M+ you do have a big ego otherwise you wouldn't be playing up there..just saying.....you can play at that level very easily....its the ones who are just marginal + players and with their ego's that will cry the most....what is wrong with letting the pitcher having some leeway also..like a bigger mat..higher limits and etc.......why do the hitters need all the concessions made for them.....

yes i do realize that maybe there are not that many hrs hit..but in trying there will be more mistakes hit at pitchers as the marginal players will do nothing but swing from the heels..then maybe the pitcher gets "oh i'm sorry pitch" after drilling them......i do believe myself that the highest div should get at least 10 hrs per game just like all the top div's in all the other assoc's (young and old)....but do ya really need more then team USA or CANADA (border battle game)get when they play...oh and they use the 52 ball with ASA bats........

steve they don't have the problem as much..b/c the assoc's have now gone to the 52-275/300 ball....they have found they waste their money when getting them shaved..as most all the bats are within 15-20' of each other regardless of assoc type or altered with this ball...it is the reason this ball was brought out onto the market...the assoc's ask for a safer ball.....

mike it is not the assoc's doing it..its the mfg'er not sending the bat to a particular assoc for testing/inspection...the miken freak is/was an example for NSA.....you could use it all over but there.....remember as soon as you start hitting with your bats they start to exceed the 1.20/1.21 bpf...most of them.....the assoc's then started with the "never can exceed"...

leelee...your kidding right...you want these egomaniacs to give up something......they never will consider giving the pitcher a bigger mat,higher limits b/c that will inhibit their ego's....gots to hit the long ball......like someone said above also..run for yourself....i have heard it said that so and so can't run for themselves b/c they are a hr hitter and needs to be saved....really...and you think that is playing a complete game......

Discussion: Time to eliminate senior bats

hey guys..you do know that all senior bats have to pass the bpf 1.20/1.21 test....the other assoc's are lower,except now ASA is allowing bpf 1.20 b/c they use the 52-300 ball....in fact there are ASA bats not allowed to be used in USSSA now.......

want to keep using the senior bats and keep the pitchers/inf'ers safer,we then need to use the 52-300 ball...get rid of these babe ruth ego's and play some real ball......

sparky..great idea..but the hr whiners are gonna tell you again,that on pitches that hi, they again will have to go middle to hit it..it seems every time something is suggested to help control the superbat/ball problem the solution is to take it out on the pitcher...really guys..why........why don't we just get you tees so ya just tee it up to your liking.....

Discussion: Time to eliminate senior bats

BO...i totally agree with you...these senior bat are addictions to the senior who n never hit them when younger,or even now when they play mens/coed leagues/tourney's where they aren't allowed....

hemi...you really think someone 5' 100 something would hit them out with ASA/USSSA bats..prolly not,but hey let them use super bats and they will...sound more like ego boosting to me instead of real play.....


i went from a 10% for hitting hrs with regular bats to close to 50%(or the chance to) with super bats..even now at 63 going on 64 i still can hit them with senior bats ....my regular bat % has gone down,but it should with my age going up..and guess what,i'm ok with that as that is the way it should be...

Discussion: Question for Mad Dog and others

i have used my sunglasses underneath the rip-it mask with no problem.....mine came with a visor that Velcro's to the top,i didn't care for that as i don't wear a hat when playing.......a few weeks back when we had a cold spell here i even used my stocking/beanie cap underneath it....to me the rip-it has the best vision among the masks...i have used the gameface and the combat faceoff,and both of those cut off some of your down vision at your feet,unless you make a real effort to look down...i also have the worth pitching helmet,which is nice and light but does have a vision prol down low(at your feet)if you happen to not look down completely.....

for me its a metal mask or nothing,as i don't trust the plastic ones......

Discussion: HR rule - why????

mmm....do you seniors feel you are better than TEAM USA,resmondo,etc..as they play with hr limits....and guess what..they don't light up the pitcher....oh most of them do use a mask to play the pitcher spot.......

ob..i like your idea with one exception....if the runner is not there and waiting,there can be no CR for that runner....he has to go all the way around.......make the CR the base coach and he'll be there instead of having to come out of the dugout......

Discussion: Dead Ball Out

why should this put the pitchers in harms way anymore,then if there were hrs left...to me it sounds like your gonna go head hunting b/c your not allowed to show how big your bat is....that is really sad......

Discussion: New rule

JB/larry..you have seen the one i wear(rip-it) right....it has great vision....if miss a ball its not b/c i couldn't see it b/c the mask block my view...also i haven't seen an increase of targeting by batters b/c i wear it....i think it is better to wear the mask then have some stupid screen in the middle of the field....

i also like the hr rules..if ya wanna hit them ..move up.....also your a cowardly POS if you have to hit middle b/c hrs are gone......

like that allan...have you patented this method yet.....LOL.....
i haven't been able to use mine yet for games except with a 52 ball (actually this is the only ball i have hit with it)and it does hit them real nice,just like my melle did.....at the moment tho i'm battling a back prol so haven't been able to really lean on it for power,but my easy line drive swing is really propelling the ball....

why is it the batters always want it their way,but will cry and whine when the pitchers ask for something...get over it batters,the damn ball comes at you at 20 mph max,and you know exactly where the ball has to hit to be a strike..your not at the whim of an umpire calling strikes like in call strike...let the batters box be.......learn to stay in it.....

Discussion: Positioning of screen protecting pitcher

neck that is the reason for the 52 ball being used,it doesn't do the damage as the 44's do.....regardless where your hit.....also most times in bp,the pitcher/thrower is trying to get thru bp fast and not worrying about whether he needs to be practicing fielding....most teams/guys just want a pitch to hit,not a pitcher's pitch to swing at..in fact i hear batters whining even then about not getting cookies to hit.....try to make it pitching practice also, will cause a big uproar....i say if it is gonna be a strike in a game,swing at it and get over it........
