Discussion: Platooning is what we need

Discussion: Platooning is what we need

Hey einstein, you do have some valid points. But this is still the game of softball. What makes it so competitive and fun to play, is you meet another team that hits the heck out of the ball and your team has a great defense and a lot of speed. Now, let's see who is going to win. It's the challenge. Two great teams facing each other with different types of players. Each team using their teams skill to overcome the other team. That's the beauty of playing softball. I feel that platooning will just develope nothing but home run derby teams. What fun will it be if a team has 10 guys that hit the ball out of the park most of the time. Then the other team comes up to bat and does the samething. Where's the fun in that. And, do you really think the 10 defensive players are only going to want to play defense. Most guys that are just hard plying ground ball stoping animals with great arms are usually great athelets and competitors. Believe me, they are going to want to have their turn at the plate. I see platooning causing more problems than just solving the problems of the players that become tired, injured or are just not that good at offense or defense. That's why ssoftball has different levels of play. If you want to play at the higher of highest level, the physical demand and skill level is higher. Maybe I'm old fashion, just my input on your subject,,,,,,

einstein, you are very entertaining. Platooning in softball, yeah right. You talk about injury prevention, players not getting tired, and who knows what else you can come up with. Maybe these players you are referring to should get in better shape. Maybe they should think of playing another sport that is less demanding, or maybe stay home and watch TV. Like someone else mentioned, we already have modified rules because we are seniors. Pretty soon this game will not even be a softball game if we keep modifying the rules. It's softball !! not football. What next, halftime after the 3rd inning. 50+ cheerleaders cheering for us in front of our dugout (oh, wouldn't that be a sight). Maybe a team mascot running around the field everytime your team scores a run. It's getting rediculous. Let's get back to just playing good old softball. Most of us have been doing it most our lives and we enjoy the heck out of it or we would have stopped long ago. Leave the game alone.

Gary19, Mad Dog,,,you guys couldn't have said it better. So many players are selected for those very reasons. Softball is a team sport and it takes contrbution of everyone to be winners,,,,,,,there is nothing better than winning,,,,,I love this game !!!

Discussion: All World, All Tourn. Selections

TaterinGa, not to make it sound like you are one sided, but I think there is more to just having a high batting avergae in softball. I knoww a lot of great players who contribute outstanding defense for their team besides hitting. A lot of great defensive plays put a stop to those would be big innings. Some of the annimosity between players is that very thing. Hitting vs defense,,,,,,well you have to have both to win. What it all comes down to is that you win as a team,,,,,who cares about "ALL TOURNEY". It's about playing together and picking up the your team mate when he's having a tuff time,,,,,that's why I play !!!

Nope, no good. It's too easy to use any address or post office box,,,,,,,how about a telephone bill, utility bill or a copy of your income tax returns,,,,heck, why don't they just let us play where we want!

Discussion: Waa, Waa, Waa !!

When are you guys going to stop complaining. If it isn't one thing, then it's something else. We are all grown men and should just go out and play ball. If you are on a losing team, then get on a better one. Don't blame everything on bracketing or the TD's. Every team can't be the winning team. So, either get better, play for a better team or pick another sport. Just stop snivling,,,,,,

Topic: Bats
Discussion: New Bats for 2005

Hey,like I said before, now the bat manufactures have us buying two bats. When is it going to stop. They are making, or someone is making, a lot of money off of us. Maybe we should just stop buying there bats until they come up with a standard that all association will accept. Besides, with the crappie balls they use now in most of their tourneys, who needs a $300.00 bat when the ball is not going to go anywhere anyways,,,,,stop buying their bats and I bet something will change will quick.

Discussion: The Truth About Bats And Balls

You are absolutely right!! I'm tired of having to buy a new bat every six months because they get banned. There is no question about it, someone is making a lot of money over the banning of bats. I suspect bat manufactures. Now, we have to contend with ball compessions,,,,,when is it going to stop. Hey, home runs are a part of the game. Come up with a standard and stick with it. The new scam now is to sells bats for low compression balls and high compression balls. Now they have us buying two bats instead of one, It's sad because we buy their bats because we are competitive and love the game,,,,,,,what will they think of next!!
