Discussion: TIME LIMITS LIMIT ENJOYMENT

When umpires begin to bitch I remind them that they get paid for rainouts (if they are at the park)and run rule games, and my final statement...I don't issue 1099's...

Scrappy, I agree with most you posted, however, the compamy I worked for provided the raw materials(resin, rosin, adhesives, binder, etc) to the manufacturer who made the finally product, I can say that certain companies want the material on their QA target, other companies gave a plus or minus and sometimes to a large degree in order to buy off-spec material that would go into the same end product. I would venture a guess that the QA in the buyer of off spec materials could care less about getting their product right...Just one example, a bat, a very popular one state that it was 27oz, when placed on a certified scale it read 30.0 oz. Performance and durability can be met for a reasonable price.

Discussion: Bat Doctor Needed

This past week saw 5 brand new, out of the shipping box bats broken on the first few swings. All the bats were Miken Red Ultra or Ultra II. 2 of the batters were in their seventies, the rest late sixties. gentlemen, things need to be done. In our after game "Shot the breeze" we discussed a few items to put pressure on the bat makers.

If paid by credit card contact your card bank and make a claim for defected equipment.

Start a blog, facebook, my space, etc to start more threads about poor performing equipment.

Frequently call the manufacturer with your concerns.

Call the suppliers about your issues.

And finally boycott the product. BTW, do all this in a polite way.

Discussion: New Year Items to Think About


Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and bull-strong.

Keep skunks and bankers at a distance.

Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.

A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor. For Tater50

Words that soak into your ears are whispered, not yelled.

Meanness don't just happen overnight.

Forgive your enemies; it messes up their heads.

Do not corner something you know is meaner than you.

It don't take a very big person to carry a grudge.

You cannot unsay a cruel word.

Every path has a few puddles.

When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty.

The best sermons are lived, not preached.

Most of the stuff people worry about ain't never gonna happen anyway.

Don't judge folks by their relatives.

Remember silence is sometimes the best answer.

Live a good and honorable life, then when you get older and think back, you'll enjoy it a second time.

Don 't interfere with somethin' that ain't bothering you none.

Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance.

If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin'.

Sometimes you get and sometimes you get got.

The biggest troublemaker you'll probably ever have to deal with watches you from the mirror every mornin'.

Always drink upstream from the herd.

Good judgment comes from experience and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.

Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin' it back in.

Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly and leave the rest to your God.

Discussion: Plate & Mat as Strike

Pitch in the over 35 league locally and pitch from time to time with senior team. I like the mat and I like the 8 foot pitching box in SPA. Also like Winky's curve...It was great to go backside when it broke.

Discussion: How many guys have had the pleasure of playing with their son(s)?

Played with oldest son and my granddaughter when she played third for the University of Maryland. Played with my youngest half man, half monster who could crush the ball but, fought with everyone...Not a great experience with the young one.

Discussion: Purist....

A trip down memory lane...LOL. The below is from a 1965 rule book,
1. For rec players; Arc 3 to 10 ft.
2. For the pro; Arc 3 to 12 ft.
Never knew that there was a difference.

Discussion: How did you get your start in softball?

Back in Brooklyn, NY in the late fifties we had stickball season, baseball season, softball season, etc. My relatives and I played some kind of ball all year long. Played fast and slow pitch during my military career around the globe. Never stopped playing, however, at 54 started playing senior ball.

Discussion: Pitchers rubber

DCPete, When you remove the bases the anchor peg is then covered by the mushroom, which makes the base anchor peg easier to find after dragging the field.

Discussion: softball player or not

I will play no matter what equipment is authorized...It boils down to love of the game...However, as a person who is involve in putting on tournament for you guys I have to say that the majority and that includes the 70/75 and older guys, They all want plastic bats and good balls (Fire balls at present time)at the tournament they attend.

Discussion: Pitchers rubber

Many years ago in a league in a far off land (NW Florida) I removed the rubber and replaced it with two base peg mushrooms 24 inches apart...No more toe hole in front of where the rubber was.

Discussion: QUESTION FOR OUTFIELDERS

I use a 14 inch A-2000 and I do not place my pointing finger in the finger hole. I place 2 fingers in the pinkie hole, middle finger in the ring hole, etc. Without the pointing finger in the hole I have more cushion / give.
