ahhhhhh Kids ball, thanks for the clarification
Yep I know, (hr rules),Ive played slo pitch since 1968 end of wooden bat era. 1963 with fast pitch teams. Ive pretty much lived it all. I was alluding to all the . from the original slo pitch game. 35 and Older(Masters) was an awesome bridge to Senior ball.
Have an Awesome Day. The is in continual adjustment,

gotta go charge a truck battery, finally stoped raining up here, (North Idaho)

well if we move the rubber back to 65 ft. overhand might have to happen, then we would have pitchers with sore arms Lol.Underhand would be more like bowling for strikes.
I thought a read yesterday someone said there was a league that didnt allow hitting up the middle. that going toooooo far if you ask me. lets see now, 2 home plate's,,catchers gear on the pitcher, limited home runs, multible players to run for you, 5 run rule,hr limits. time limit.Hot bats with mush balls on the way. Yep we are a gimmicky game. and in spite of all that we still manage to have fun,oh forgot we rate teams also. Are Players rated? I Think they might be. somewhere in there you have 11 defensive players.
And it is called Senior Softball, all changes made, were believed to be for the good of the players. We have adjusted to every one of those changes, some are harder to take than others,
I believe there are 9 Different Senior Assoc.. I believe we are bigger than anyone would have imagined back in the 70's , Most guys quit before 35.
I think we have a great game because we the players make it great, all opinions are listened to on these forums. that is a very good thing, we know what we are passionate about and share with each other those thoughts. I appreciate everyone's input on here, So as we move on this spring, I think it is time to PLAY BALL.

Food for thought, allow only major league wooden bats, lots of models, should be something there for everyone.
Anybody ever hit slo pitch balls with major league bats, POP? duralibility sure would level the playing field kinda hard to juice them where it made much of a difference,, probably be sold as juiced senior bats LOL

cant get my brain wrapped around the 5 run rule, seems like the better teams dont get anything from that rule, if they could score 8 to 10 runs per, the advantage goes to the team that scores 3 to 7per with a great defense,correct?

Question? If U maxed out the first 6 innings, with your five runs per, the only outs you would recieve would be three in the seventh?

Discussion: pitching screen

I agree with Kbl,and stick8. Gimmicky is an understatement,First we had THE GAME, then came divisions A I feel like the circus has arrived at out game, The _ _ _ _ _ _ seemed less intrusive. So lets move on to Bat restrictions and cotton ball to play with. Have a great Day :)

Discussion: pitching screen

Having heard all the comments, some quite riled I might add. I belive the original game would be perfect I dont really want to use wooden bats. But cold do that with fence's back to 275 feet. base pathes at 60ft. Who thinks that's going to happen.
And I never said screens at third or first, I was implying that the corners have a little more time to react. to hard hit balls,moving in from the bag puts them about where the pitcher is.Putting on that pitching gear is safe I guess.dumb looking but safe. My solution to the screen is I wont pitch, and Im sure not wearing the armor, My hat is off to those who s5till go out there, many can play pitching position very well. and some can pitch but cant play a lick of defense,just worry about that group that are in denial about the defensive abilities.
No need to get riled up,
Be safe,Have fun.Did I mention, dont mention the screen.

Discussion: pitching screen

The player at 3rd base or first, i have not noticed them coming in 10 to 20 ft to face senior bats, they probably play 3ft to 10 ft back behing thier bag. the screen is a great idea. this game for seniors is to have fun, but not at expense of injury if preventable.. Ask most pitchers in 65 and up. They will for the most part support the screen. I think a 30in width,7 ft tall screen would be something to protect, and still allow the ball to go thru a hit screen with that minimum size, would probably be an out without a screen,Sorry to say but as we get older we slow down.
No one will want to pitch if we keep blasting the pitchers with linedrive's,
actually most power hitters stay away from the middle for that very reason..
I would rather have a screen than a pitching machine.
