Discussion: 44/375 -VS- 52/300

Do a search on the internet for it.

Here is 1 search result http://www.softballhitting.info/softballcorcompinfo.html

You are comparing apples to oranges by equating the percentages in the BPF and trying to convert them to distances of a batted ball.

The difference between 1.20 and 1.21 is not 1%.

The 1.20 and 1.21 are better defined as versions of a bat, with the higher rating the hotter bat, but it doesn't mean 1% hotter.

Wooden bats are at 1.15 according to some of the searches I did.

Take a look at this link that explains http://phys.csuchico.edu/baseball/POBActivities/POB/BPF.pdf

Dave, the 1 up rule would be a welcome change. Was it seriously considered?

Tim, I disagree with you on playing the lower division. Let teams work throughout the year to win back to back.

SSUSA is doing a good job with divisions as is. I think Tim is almost by himself thinking that teams should be broken up. But SSUSA always interested in feedback, just giving my 2 cents worth with my post.

Swing, I think we are agreeing with each other on moving more teams up. On the other, if it went to 3 divisions instead of 4, I would suggest reclassifying all, not just the major and major plus together.

Hi Nancy, we play in the brickyard every year. Last year we had 3 teams in it. Always a good well run tournament. We are trying to coordinate for a couple of other major plus teams to come play in it this year. Hopefully we will have some success.
Look forward to seeing you there.

Instead of looking at number of tournament wins for a year, make it number of top 2 finishes. When evaluating the Worlds, automatically bump top 15% finishers.

I have always thought 3 divisions were plenty.

Discussion: Factors in defining what a good hitter is

All of the above Stick, plus hitting for the situation, not just clutch for your at bat. Being able to adjust to go opposite field, passing it down to the next batter if you have to just get on and save the HR. Reading the game situation, then do your job for that situation.

Discussion: TOC follow up

I wish we could have had enough to go this year, we planned on it up until the last few weeks of the deadline.

I understand SSUSA has a contract to hold it at the same time for a few years yet.

But what if it was held during the week after the Vegas nationals? People could just have an extended vacation and not have to plan travel twice.

JFSully, it may be ok to mess with baseball, but you better not be jumping on with that group of haters that says Santa Claus not real.

I agree with softballnuts if always swinging for power, but a lighter bat gives you more bat control when place hitting.

The pitcher/ss on that team was a hitter. Saw him hit with power and to all fields.

stick, I have to question your judgement on giving someone a compliment who obviously doesn't know his slapstick. Laurel & Hardy better than the Stooges? Come on.

Discussion: Why Not Reward Performance?

Home team is an advantage because you know how many runs going in you have to score. In senior softball you are allowed 5 an inning, so it is not the same as the really good young teams where they can score enough in the top of the inning to intimidate the other team. If a team selects visitors they really are planning for a very good open inning, but that is putting a lot on the open inning being a big one.

They do have some statistics in the MLB on the advantage of home team, (through 2008) one place is

This is a stat on playoffs and the edge to the home team is .548

Softball is a much higher scoring and easier to score game so I would thing it would be a higher winning percentage.
