Discussion: If it slithers beware.

Well I have no plan to work it out. These players splintered off to form another team, but when they were unable to,so they submitted a letter to the league director stating I had been voted off as the team manager, and they would be voting in a new manager, a coach, and would keep my registered team name. The votes were just fabricated, for I verified there bogus voteing information, and are confronting them as we speak. They will not take my team or team name.

Thanks much for your response. The thing is, the bad guys are in the same league, and town. I think the registering of the name put up a block. They my use something close, but the infringment covers "confusingly simular" also. Much appreciation.

I registered my team name just in case so I wouldn't have to wear a flack jacket to protect my back. I can understand players splitting off, but has anyone ever had to deal with s---bags trying to take over a team, and the name? For a few bucks, regester your team name, it will work. I also covers what is called "confusingly simular".

Discussion: No one really cares about player safety!

No condoning the umpires actions or the other teams, but it looks like both teams played under the same conditions. I don't think there is any stipulations regarding sun for Pitcher Saftey. I am not sure how fast the innings were, but that is a awfull long time for the sun to be in the same position in the sky.

Discussion: Inoxicated player

Hey AZ, there are no players on my team with the title sub, everyone is a player. No head games anymore at our age. If someone needs their ego built up, my team is not the place. I am not here to develope minds, or protect someones feelings, or build up egos. That is for mothers, and wives. I can just imagine what a team of base hitters that thought they were home run hitters would look like. Easy pickins. One either knows his abilities, or lives is lala land, and hopes no one notices and has a excuse for every error. No time to blow smoke.

Discussion: Inoxicated player

This guy didn't play, I just got a bunch of flack for not allowing him to play. The selected few questioned me on why I sat him, and put in a lower skilled player. I responded that he had been drinking before the game. This is when I found out, that there is a " Good Old Boy" feeling among some of my players. My question was not a after the fact, but more what if I did.

Discussion: Inoxicated player

Aloha plenty,
Your responses have really helped me justify my policy of not drinking prior, or during a game. I sat a know alc. last season, and was questioned why. I had explained, that the player had been drinking. The response from some of the players was it was ok, and being drunk is how this player functions. I now have input from you all that will support my no drinking policy, and th " Good Old Boy " is history.
Aloha Much

I know there has to be some attorney type players out there. As a coach, I allowed a known intoxicated player on the field, and he gets drilled with a ball, and is hurt, can I be held liable?

Discussion: Pitcher Safety rule

Thanks a Mil. for the input. I just didn't want to think that I didn't know there was a rule that I did not know about, and have to explaine it to my team. I notified the league director of this rule, and will save some of out pitchers.

Discussion: Pitcher Safety rule

I am really going to be considered a novice, but how long has the Pitcher Safety rule been around. In my fifteen years of softball, I have never heard of it. As a pitcher, I have taken more shots up the middle then I can remember.
And yes, have bounced a few off of pitchers also. I just happend on it here, and looked it up, and walla, there it was in my Official Senior Softball-USA Rule book. Now I must be looking rather stupid, after all I am a coach, but I asked one of my more experienced players that travels throughout the States every summer playing softball, and he never heard of it either. It would be really interesting to know how long this rule has been around.

Topic: Bats
Discussion: Ultra II

It has a stamp like figure on them with some type of association wording next to another 1.20 marking. With our lava type of dirt, it wears out the markings pretty quick. Can you tell me what makes them special, for all of the new UltraII bats have the same1.20 as mine does. Actually two different markings next to each other. If I recall, it was about five years ago that they were banned, and there were about twenty teams that were using the Ultra II, and they all were put away. Most of them didn't have time to be broke in when they were banned. The bats that were given to me cost $320.00 at the time, and were like new. Would I be getting a better bat if I found more of them like mine?

Discussion: Ultra II

Are all the Ultra II bats the same? I use a couple that were handed down to our senior team because they were considered ilegal in their league. I was told they were better then the Ultra II bats being made now. Are they just blowing smoke? If not should I consider getting more of the bats, for there were quite a few in closets that were banned?

Discussion: The Batting Box

I knew it, I should have been more specific regarding my question. It is more regarding being in the box. If your heel or toe is outside the line, you are considered out of the box prior to hitting.

Discussion: The Batting Box

For years, I have pondered the rule of being in the batters box. In the majority of sports, a line is used. Any time the line is touched, the call would be fair, but our lines for the batters box are different. Should your heel, or toe be outside the line, even if rest of your foot is on the line, this would be considered out of the box. Does the size of the line come into play also? Two inch, or four inch. Is it even worth the time to think about it.
Much Aloha
