Discussion: Runner Hit by Batted Ball

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

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

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.

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.

IMHO

Limit the courtesy runners allowed will also bring things back to a legit level.

Discussion: New Miken ASA Ultra

Used this Miken last night in league games...let's just say, the performance was nothing short of amazing.
Everybody is different, swings are different, strength and bat speed are different, but for me, this bat is every bit as good as any senior bat I have used...and I really like the warranty.
I will be getting more of these.

Discussion: New Miken ASA Ultra

I purchased this bat from Alan last week.
Went out and hit with it this weekend and after about 100 swings...it's starting to loosen up. Have to say, it's the hardest feeling composite bat I have every broke in. Alan has been great in helping me find the right bat for me... I love it so far. The End Load feels great, I believe there is an extra 1/2 oz. for a better feel.
I think it's a good bat for big hitters, I'm tired of going through 4-6 bats a season. If this bat can perform and last, I will buy again.
Thanks again Alan...

Discussion: Congratulations SF

It just goes to show you what can be accomplished when everyone is on the same page, pulling in the same direction...anything is possible.
Winning any kind of championship is a team accomplishment...don't let anybody tell you different.
The Giants were a shining example of that.
Everybody contributed!! From the front office to the bat boy.

Ground rule triple??? Seriously? WOW!
For the most parts all umpires were good...we had one at Doc Romeo that was pretty bad...but he didn't really factor in the game.

He did something funny once... called a pitch a strike... then told the pitcher to bring it down... wait...if it's a strike, why did he have to bring it down?

Discussion: rumor has it

The big rumor going around is that MTC is pulling their sponsorship from the 50's because of the coaches childish behavior on message boards.
