Discussion: All the hate on DBO with senior bats...how about this?

Adiktiv6 you are most likely correct with composite bats you more than likely do get a lot of kisses
But without the composites or the Viagra you would not get any of either

Tim you know they are not going to do this. It was expose their manhood. They could not go back to the Motel at night and tell the young wife how many homeruns they hit.

They had rather loss the bottle of Viagra then the composite bats. The thunder sticks makes them feel like real men

Discussion: HR rule - why????

I know how it feels when you are the home team. score our 5 in the bottom of the 6th to almost catch up. Only behind 18-20 But the top of the 7th the visiting team comes in and unleashed the beast LOL

hit 16 Homeruns in the top of the seventh and went ahead 46 to 18. I know after about 25 minutes I was tired of watching it. We came in and put up 9 but never got close.

Oh and by the way that inning took over 30 minutes because we changed pitchers 3 times to try and break the mo but it never happened

Discussion: HR rule - why????

I like the DBO, as a pitcher it gives me some strategy.
Bases open in the early innings serve up a biscuit let them hit the solo.

I think good major team can now play with a good major plus.

If the major plus players want to play with unlimited homeruns go to, no composite bats allowed in Major plus and let the real men hit some homeruns.

Bet that rule will never happen because the so called homerun hitters would quite the game before they became exposed as the weak hitters they really are.
All they know how to do is hit it hard and hope it goes out.

Most of them were the ones that hit it 274 on the old 275 fences. never worked on the correct skills to exceed and was reborn when composites came out.

If you are a true athelte you will adapt to whatever rule they come out with.

Discussion: Rules question. Happened at Huntsman

Paul in the 1st one that is obstruction , the rule says a runner can never be ruled out between the bases that he was obstructed between. If the umpire thinks he could have made second without the obstruction then he would be placed on 2nd otherwise he would be put back on 1st.

In the second one, once the umpire calls a foul ball that is what we have to live with, not always right but that would be a judgement call however bad the judgement is.

Not like calling it foul when it hits the foul pole, that would be a rule interpertation. a good umpire would have took two or three quick steps to get the 1st baseman out of line of vison.

Curly on the play above when runner gets hit with ball while he is on the bag at third with bases loaded
It would be a dead ball and all runners would move up one base the batter would be credited with a hit and the runner that was on third would eventually score once he could get up and advance toward home

In ASA and others if the pitcher does not touch it the runner would be out.

The runner at third would be out 99% of the time cause there are not many 3rd basemen crazey enough to play in front of third LOL

Ok it appears that stick is an umpire or player with a lot of rule knowledge

Give me an answer to this one

Runner on third batter hits a line drive toward third, the runner jumps into foul ball territory however the ball hits the base making it a fair ball then bounces over and hits the runner standing in foul area.

whats the call

the runner got hit by a fair ball but he is standing in foul ground?

Well since the pitcher did not touch the ball
The ball would be dead the runner called out and the batter would be awarded a hit and placed on 1st base

You now have two outs with a runner on first.

If the pitcher had touched it and no other defensive player had a chance to make an out then the ball would remain alive unless the runner intentionally made contact with the ball

Stick you have to come up with something harder than that.

Lets say the runner at second was still on the bag at second when the ball contacted him
now what is the ruling

Another scenerio
Runner on second with 2 outs
Batter hits what appears to be a double
runner on second scores but misses 3rd base
running sliding into second gets tagged out for 3rd out
defense appeals the runner that was on second for missing 3rd base. That appeal would be a fourth out appeal to nullify the run

Discussion: Las Vegas Fields and Umpires

The batters boxes that I saw at BLD was 4 x 6
that is a baseball batters box
Slow Pitch is 3 x 7

Makes the batter move in closer to the plate and hard to handle the inside pitch but lets you stand up in front of the plate and hit that low short pitch

Discussion: Hr or out

Lets get real technical
Bases loadeed much touch next base after homerun
Runner on Third touched wrong plate and called out
No runs would score and the homerun counts against teams total

No that would be a back breaker

Discussion: Las Vegas Schedule

Guys most of us have between 12 and 14 people on our teams
Thats less than $60.00 a piece for 3-4 days of some really great softball and frienships.

Most of us would think nothing of going to a show and spending $60.00 apiece for 2 hours of entertainment
So this is a deal for me

Discussion: Flip Flop Rule

The flip flop rule would not have to be used if the team winning by more than the run rule would not switch places on defense and act like a bunch of 5th graders just so they can bat again

Not following you on the last sentence

Adult slowpitch question

Runner beats throw to first but steps completly over first a split second later the ball arrives and the 1st baseman catches the ball
Does the Umpire call the runner out?

The reason I wpuld say out is

If there had been other runners on If I was a player I would do that to try and draw a throw to home and let my other runners advance. If I was going to be safe anyway, what would I have to lose

That is a good one, I would rule that once he heads back to third he has to retag home to be called safe. I would call him out

Discussion: Play at first

1st off I do not think any umpire has good enough vision to say that the runner stepped on the foot and at least some part of his cleat or foot did not touch the bag.

And this would be an appeal play anyway. He would have to appeal the runner miseed the base and tag him before he got back to the base.

Rule the runner is assumed to have touched any base once he is beyond that base and has to be appealed

Would like to invite any wierd play, ask the question and lets get some of these out in the open.

Thats the problem is most players do not know the wierd rules and just go back to what they have heard all the years that they have been playing and most of the times they were not enforced correctly.


Question does one of the runner have to be out when two runners occupy the same base during a live ball?

The way Stick asked the question the run would count. Because the 3rd out of the inning was not the result of a force out but rather a time play.
However if the defense had appealed the runner at 3rd for leaving early the umpire would have had to evoke the 4th out rule which would have canceled the run.
