Topic: Bats
Discussion: Ultra II's Why?

The answer is really simple. We like to hit the ball really far. The farther the better. The Ultra II allows us to do that the best. As long as the bat is legal, we will use it. Those of us who don't want to use it, but still want to play in the league that allows it, need to build a bridge and get over it. I play in a league that does not allow the U2. I don't hit as many home runs as I did when the bat was legal, but I'm fine with that. I love the game and just want to be a productive part of the team I play for. The home run is the ultimate base hit, but if you get three doubles and a triple to help your team, then you should be realy happy that you still have the ability to get out there and get the job done.

Discussion: time to bring the boys back

I agree with you Bruce. This is not the venue for our views on what is or is not happening in this great? country of ours. I love it and have fought for it and am proud to be able to play softball any night of the week that I want because of it. Now, about that church you go to. Just kidding. Let's play ball.

Einstein, when did YOU get to New Orleans, and how long are you going to be able to be there to help?

Discussion: 3 teams playing at the same time.

Thanks for the response Dave. In your college days, the players could get on and off the field much quicker than we can now. In order to speed the game up they had a way of, after the first inning, you stayed in the field for six outs and when you were batting, you batted for a total of six outs. And, like you did, one team was always sitting out three outs. It worked out well, but was really confusingfor me in the beginning and I had to just watch someone on my team and when he picked up his glove, I knew it was time to hit the field.

Discussion: 3 teams playing at the same time.

A few years ago I played for a while in Redwood City, Ca. Sometimes there were only enough players for 3 teams. They had a way of structuring the teams so that all 3 could play each other with one team sitting for 3 outs on a rotating basis. Can anyone refresh my old brain and explain how they did it?

Discussion: Overlap Grip

Once again, I ask, what is the overlap grip and how does it increase distance? Thanks for any input.

Discussion: Overlap Grip

I am over 50, so I am just a bit slow. But, what is the overlap grip and how does it increase distance? What are the chances of it becoming an illegal grip so no one gets hurt?

Discussion: HIT THE MIDDLE.

I played in Redwood City, Ca. last year. They put a net by the pitcher as is done during B/P. The pitcher can choose to be protected by the net or move to the side of it so he can field a batted ball. A ball striking the net or the frame is a dead ball. No added ball or strike. This gives the pitcher some protection and also takes away the middle for those that don't want to hit it over the net. Can't think of any reason why anyone in their right mind would enjoy hitting another player. Maybe they have been hit in the head a few too many times themselves.
