Discussion: new softballs

The the better bats still hit the 52/300 the best. However, the difference isn't as great as with the 44/375.

The longest ball I ever hit was with the 52/300 ball. However, overall the 44/375 will go farther. I don't think you'll notice speed of the ball thru the infield being that much different. Balls hit on the nose don't seem to carry as well. The 52 ball is bouncier.

I played in a league that went from using ASA bats with the 44/375 ball to allowing USSSA bats with the 52/300 ball. I thought the results were comparable. I preferred playing with U trip bats and the new ball to playing with ASA bats and the 44 ball.

In two years playing with the 52 cor ball I didn't see or hear of any bats breaking.

Discussion: rotator cuff rehab

I had rotator cuff surgery in Dec 2005. It took almost two years before I could throw decently again. I had to play catcher at first because throwing back to the pitcher was about as far as I could throw.

Hope you have better luck.

Discussion: Dalton Fields

Yes, when we played in the majors in July there was a lot of rain. Fields drained well and were in good condition. Wasn't much down time due to rain and there was quite a bit.

Discussion: On Base Percentage (OBP)

I always used OBP when managing. If you kept reached on error you would find the same players due to how fast they were or how hard they hit the ball always got on more year after year. Guys that draw walks can get the pitcher off his game. I also recorded SF's as outs. Getting on base and not making outs is where its at.

Discussion: Got a empty box in the mail

Most thefts happen at airports( where USPS & others do not have control) or at the customers door. I worked for USPS. You could not walk out of a mail processing facility with a bat. They have guards, scannners, and concealed windows where postal inspectors can watch the floor.

However, there have been numerous instances where airport employees have been caught doing this. Often by postal inspectors.

If a letter carrier or anyone receives a package without contents or damaged they are supposed to notify their supervisor. The supervisor will mark it received without contents or damaged. It will still be delivered so the customer can then make a claim or initiate a search. The post office doesn't know what was supposed to be in the box without doing this.

Anyone who has this occur on their route will be watched by postal inspectors. Either to catch an employee or to see if someone in the area is stealing packages. Actually, you are not supposed to leave a package if the person isn't home but many do because cutomers don't want the hassle of going to the post office.

Discussion: CR

Don't like the rule as is. Would like to see some more limits on it.

On my team I feel its the main reason we fail to play all 7 innings many times. Too much time wasted changing runners.

Discussion: LOOKING FOR TOURNEY TEAM IN VIRGINIA

He's out of Maryland phone# should be 410-404-2091. He runs the 65 team not the 60's team. However, Hamels has teams at several age groups. Randy Moses runs the 60's team.

Discussion: Survey Time:

A. would play if USSSA was the standard. I currently play in 4 leagues. One uses USSSA bats and 44/375 balls. One uses single wall bats and 44/375 balls. Another uses USSSA bats and 52/275 balls. Fall league uses ASA bats and 44/375 balls. Of course in tournaments use the current standards. I enjoy playing in all the leagues.

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

Played with my son for about 8 yrs. Unfortunately, he's had two back operations and is no longer playing. I've also played with two brothers, 3 nephews, a cousin, and two brothers-inlaw. I started the team back in 1975 and its still going. Although, I turned it over to my brother last season and retired to play senior ball. I did fill in for them a couple of times.

Going to a family party tonight. I'm sure we'll all be talking softball.

mad dog, This is trumpball's post from 11/15 on softball fans

Bob, believe it or not 1 senior association is considering going to this ball senior bats and no runs per inning, homerun, or time limit rules. Softball they way it was supossed to be played what a concept.

Discussion: hotbats

played in one senior league using 52 cor ball with USSSA bats. Scores were still high. Balls hit on the nose (line drive type) did not seem to go as far. However, balls hit with more height seemed to go farther. I still think the better bats hit these balls better but not as much of a difference. I did not see a substantial difference in the bounce of the ball. However, the fields in this league were better than other leagues I played in.

Infielders probably did have more of a chance but balls were still hit very hard with this ball.

I read on softball fans that one of the senior associations was considering going to the 52 cor balls while dropping the 5 run per inning rule. Post by Kevin (trumpball).

Discussion: 52 x 275 ball

I've played in one tournament using the 52 cor ball as well as one league using them. Also, play in two leagues using the 44 /375 balls. As well as tournaments.

I'm just not seeing the big controversy. These balls are fine. I actually think I can hit the 52's a little farther.

I'd be curious as to what an Ultra could do with them. However, it seems the leagues and tournaments that use them don't allow ultras.
