Discussion: indy brickyard 2010

any idea when we can start seeing a list of the teams competing in the brickyard this year on may 1-2. does anyone know if their team is planning on playing - looking for any major+ teams that might be there. or major teams just in case they combine divisions.

amr 50 major made it to the championship game, but passed since it was about a 4 hour wait (game time probably would have been around 8-8:30pm) to finally play. we also had some guys that had to travel home and with it being memorial day weekend they would have gotten home incredibly late. other than that, don't know who eventually played in the championship game.

what is the status of each team listed in the 50's bracket? are they all major? are they a mixed bag of major and major+. will the 2 divisions be combined @ the tournament, or will they play seperate? any help would be great. good luck to all teams in this tourney.

will the teams in the tournament be listed @ some point, or is there some way to see (website, etc ...) who exactly is playing in this tournament and the breakdown of the divisions for the teams entered.

Discussion: 300 + FIELD TAKE

as an outfielder myself, and i may be, along with a few others an exception to the rule. i played at the winter nationals in naples and i loved the 325 ft. fences. not only did it allow me to run down more fly balls in the outfield, especially the gaps (here's the exception part - i still have been blessed with great speed even at 50, play in a premier league with kids 1/2 my age, and play cf on my church team, we play a 5 man infield and 3 man outfield, and play in a very competetive local open league). all that aside, i think 325 should be the standard in any league. with the advancment in bats and balls for the most part i don't think 300 ft fields are logical anymore. i do understand it's difficult for most if not all complexes (obviously $$$$) to accomodate 325 ft fences. but i have to admit it was a blast running around that expanded outfield. one side note, for the most part i think the true hr hitters will still hit them out. but for all you others on 325 at least i know i can run them down. for all you southern and west coast guys, how cool is it that you have such good weather. i'm heading down to cincinnati with my premier team next weekend for our 1st tournament. weather outlook 30-35 with snow flurries, but i'm happy to be playing, it's just @ my age i'll have to keep moving so i don't become frozen to the outfield grass. good luck to everyone this upcoming softball season.

Discussion: There's STATS and there are stats...

guys,

please correct me if i'm wrong on this. in replying to what santo said about it being hard to fudge OBP. take this scenario .... you come up 4 times during a game, each ab a runner is on 1st base, you ground into a force play each ab. according to OBP you're at .1000, because you're standing on 1st but according to ba you're at .000. over the years i've seen players not deserving of all tournament status receive this award because the coach was going by OBP. (especially when the coach offers his suggestions for all tournament team to the TD) on the other hand i've seen players have much better tournaments but not receive the same award they were more deserving of.

again, if i'm incorrect on this please let me know. but i don't think simply going by OBP is the best reflection of the quality of play a player may have had during that tournament.

one other thought: if you're going to award a player OBP for hitting into a force play or fielder's choice, you certainly cannot hold it against a player for hitting a sacrifice fly and bringing a run across, whether it's the 1st or 5th run of the inning.

Discussion: amazed at all the posts

guys,

i just spent my 1st year in senior softball (league & tournaments). i had a blast. but i'm amazed at all the bickering that seems to take place on this message board about a variety of subjects. personally, i am not taking sides with anyone, everyone is entitled to their opinion, and should be respected for that, right, wrong or indifferent.
on the other hand, it sure is disappointing to someone like myself just starting out in senior softball to read about all this stuff. i sometimes wonder when reading some of the posts on here if i should even continue with senior softball. but my love for the game will keep me on the field, until the day i die, who knows i might even play after that.

i'd like everyone to heed the words of a famous american athlete, one i'm sure you all know who said: (the context of his statement was changed for this message board).

it's only softball man, we're just talking about softball ....

hope everyone enjoys the 2009 season !!!!

Discussion: thoughts on FLA NAPLES

i play lc for amr 50 majors .... i know their has been a lot of talk about safety issues on this site. i'd like to bring one up that i haven't seen yet, and i'm sure all who played lc @ veterans park @ the winter nationals in ft myers can attest to this as well. i'm not sure which field# but as you walk up it's the 1st field on the right, we played a game there on saturday and i was stunned that in lc there was a tree with a thick branch sticking right over the fence into the playing field. anyone who was going hard after a fly ball in that area surely took a chance of being impaled by that branch. seriously guys, how hard, and how much trouble could it be to get out a chainsaw and cut that branch down. i can't tell you how many times i turned around during the game and looked @ that branch, not believing it was there. this could have caused a very serious injury to anyone lf or lc that ventured into that area to run down a fly ball. by the way on field #3, how much common sense does it take to not play a game @ 8am on that field. the sun is directly in the eyes of both teams when they are hitting. i can say i don't ever remember seeing so many people strike out swinging, and during their ab just swinging and missing. by 9am the sun was not an issue, why was the game not started @ 9am. is it possible the bcs had a hand in this. it's amazing that common sense seems to not be a factor in anything anymore.

i'm afraid that reality as we know it, is someone else's dream .... and when that dreamer awakes we'll no longer exist ....
