Discussion: NorCal Warriors bumped to Major Plus


Tim...all great points...I brought most of these items up when discussing this with SSUSA yesterday, but they fell on deaf ears.

Reasoning behind the bump was that we won our games by a total of almost 7 runs per game.
However, in bracket play we won by 1, 2 and 5 runs respectively.

I'm not going to harp on this, we will accept the punishment...er bump and we will continue to go out and battle as best we can with the roster we have.
You will hear nobody from our team bitching and moaning about this.

We will do the dance as they say...

Oh and the kicker...we got the notice one day after they cashed our check for the Western Nationals...

Discussion: What was to consensus on DBO Homerun rule after Rock N Roll Reno?

I don't think it affected any of the games we played in Tim...at the Major Level.
I believe there was one game where the other team hit one too many for an out.
but they won the game anyway.

Our team didn't hit the magic number in any of our games...but then, we didn't play that well.

Didn't see too much middle hitting...no more than usual anyway.

Scores were about the same or slightly lower than usual.

Not sure how this rule affects Major Plus, but I believe the HR DBO rules is perfect for Major teams.

Discussion: Throwing

Swing is correct...it just can't be done...we can all work hard and make ourselves better...but there is a limit.

Discussion: Throwing

Arm strength can be improved, but one shouldn't be throwing weighted balls or anything other that the ball they will be throwing. And the arm strength you get from lots of extra throwing won't be life changing, it will only slightly improve what you do have as well as your endurance.

Discussion: Pickle Juice

HJ....what I'm reading is that Pickle Juice has about the same sodium content as Alka Seltzer...

Alka Seltzer: Sodium Content 445mg per tablet
Vlassic Pickle: 880 mg Sodium (that's just the pickle...the juice I'm sure is much more concentrated).

So it seems that Sodium is a big contributor in both of these products.

All I know is... neither have been scientifically proved or disproved, but I have tried both in the past, and they have both seemed to work for me.

Discussion: Pickle Juice

I remember a long time ago...Alka Seltzer was used in the club house in the sweltering heat and humidity of summer.
Seemed to work well.

Discussion: Hitting to RF by a RH batter

Good Stuff Alan,

As far as technique goes, I would also add that you should really bring your hands through the zone first.
A great way to get this down is to do lots of Tee Work. Hit off the tee concentrating on bringing your hands through the zone and the bat barrel will follow accordingly.
Tee work will also allow you to figure out how far off the plate you truly need to be to make contact with the sweet spot.
Watch video of Buster Posey and Derek Jeter, they both do this extremely well.

IMHO

Discussion: Runner Hit by Batted Ball

Yup...I read the rules and they are exactly as Andy has cut and pasted in the above post.
So it is different than a standard baseball rule then.

Staff: are the rules for softball different than standard baseball rules then?

Discussion: Runner Hit by Batted Ball

Check that last post...ANYTIME a "Base runner" is hit with a batted ball before an infielder touches it...there is an out.

Discussion: Runner Hit by Batted Ball

ANYTIME a batter is hit with a batted ball in fair play, there is an out...regardless if he is standing on a base or not.

Discussion: players please respond to rule changes

Did I miss something???
All this talk sounds like there will be no HR's allowed.

Actually...for Major+ you get 10 HR's...after that they will be considered outs. With the old rule, after 10 HR's...it's a walk, only one base and at the very most...1 RBI.
So the argument about "loving to hit HR's" doesn't really apply here does it.

Leon...great stuff!!! Fun to think about...(but we both know that would never happen).
You are correct though...Softball should be more about the whole game, not just the big guys hitting HR's. Let's field, throw and run, there is so much more to the game.
Let's see how many HR's get hit on the last day of a three day tourney...after big guys like me have to run around the bases all day in the August heat.


Seriously, I have no problem with the new DBO Rule. I think it will help bring the better all around teams towards the top.

Discussion: sick players at Sunset Park

Yes...I was at Sunset on the weekend of 27th-29th and came home sick as a dog. Stomach was tore up for a week.
I didn't eat anything there...just drank the water from the dugout...never again will I drink out of those water jugs.
I was at BLD this weekend and it's a little harder to drink your own water here as they don't let you bring anything in and you have to drink there stuff.
But again I have come down with an illness after this weekend.

Discussion: You make the call part 643

Good one...I believe the run counts as you have described the events.
However...if the shortstop would have just stepped on third for the force out...the run would not have counted.

Looking forward to Nor Cal Warriors (Western Major Champions) playing the Carolina A's (Eastern Major Champions) in Vegas...should be great fun.

Discussion: Major Plus

I can't speak for the others, but I don't play for "The Ring", I play for the great competition and playing with friends and being the best team we possibly can. Just the fact that I can still go out there and play at a decent level is good enough for me.
Like Malo says, win or lose...I always enjoy the battle.
It's not the destination, it's the journey that means so much to me.

If that means playing the same teams over and over again, then so be it.

Even in the Major division, there may be more teams, but it's usually the same faces you see at these events. And the same team you played earlier in the year, isn't always the same team next time.
