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.

Gary...I would play with socks and broom handles (look up the name, its in the blood, lol.). Based on just organizing national and local tournaments the players WANT the senior bats and at present time the Fire ball. My own wish is for a more in the park game. However,the survey done a few years ago by SPA provide enough data for the associations to continue the bat and ball combo that most seniors desire.

MD-60, That info has been around for a while and both researchers are very knowledgable in their profession and softball. However, as a member of a tournament committee that sponsors Nationals for other associations I can say for sure that teams and players want senior bats and hot balls. I personally agree with you about defense, but senior softball is a business. The change will occur when all the senior associations agree to go to a lesser ball at the same time or a lawyer review the BBS information and tries to make a case that the association knew of the danger and failed to correct.

Dirty, Its been awhile since I played up your way, but, I remember 1 hour and 15 minutes per game around Breckville/ Independence cuz umpires were sort of unionized, i.e.. They wanted an hourly rate.
Last year at the lower end of the 48 the local Parks and Recreation went to 1 hour cuz of umpires and scorekeepers wanting more $$$.

Yes, I agree with you about the beauty of the game with no time limits, however, you will not find to many umps.

BTW, I also played in a "Gentlemens League", no umpires, no time limt, no problems. Go Figure. Could it be that the players were actually acting like adults and behaving properly. LOL

1). 70 foot bases.
2). No Courtesy Runner, however, if used, courtesy runner should be the person who made the last out.
3). Longer and wider pitching box

Discussion: Rating a player?

Just an opinion...The rating rule should be expanded to allow a player or two from an older age group regardless of his rating (AA, AAA, major, major+) to play down in a younger divison.

Discussion: Weight of bats

Not to sure of the QA at the bat plant, but from my manufacturing experience certain products were plus or minus X amount. However, certain customers want the exact weight, lenght, color, etc. for their buyers, sponsors, players.
