Discussion: Grading the Rule Changes

I could be off a little, here is what comes up on the net.

It depends on where you are. Las Vegas ranges from over 2000 ft on the strip to close to 4000 in the outer suburbs. Also, Mt. Charleston goes up to 8000 ft, well it is a mountain.

Pricer,
I designed those balls way back when and yes they are 20-30 better than a stote ball. Then add in the fact that you are playing at 4400 ft above sea level with very low humidity and you could easily add 50-70 ft on distances. Really well hit balls by bigger hitters can add 100ft.

Discussion: Update from USSSA National Convention

I was in the manufactures meeting when they announced this. Some of the originals posters info is not correct. No masked for pitchers and hitting the net is not correct, as I know it.

Discussion: Mercy Rule,

I don't think you are being a sore loser, I just think that the game was played by the rules. They didn't change during the game.

More rules is not a good idea. They have to have a meeting every year to discuss rules changes as it is. Every year you have to figure out what the new rules are. Prior to the super bats that game was played for 95 years with the same rules, other than moving bases and mounds back. It easn't til the technology forced rule changes in the 80's. I remember when there was no divisions just a softball game.

Discussion: Mercy Rule,

Here is the problem I see with that.

Game was over because your team didn't score enough runs within the rules.

Now you get an open inning and suddenly get hot and score say 30 runs. Now the team that played the game by the rules and won has been in the field for an hour in heat and come in go 123. Game over and they lose. How is that fair? It could work against your team as well. You guys just had a bad game, it happens but I don't think more rules is going to help anyone in this. If this was reversed I really don't believe you would be trying to get the rule changed to help them.

Discussion: Mercy Rule,

I know what game you are talking about, my buddy was playing first base for sportsplex.

Here is the thing, there are to many rules for senior softball. Back in the 90's useing .47/525 balls and aluminum bats games were 7 innings, no time limits, unlimited home runs.
Games lasted 1 hour to 1.5 hours. Scores were between 10 and 20 runs per game.

Now with the new equipment it is an offensive game so all kind of rules had to be put in place. Imagine playing vegas without any rules like they have. You would probably still be there playing.

Discussion: ASA WORLDS AT BURLINGTON

Donnie I understand the rules, you shouldn't complain when you are playing local toury's and there is no competition for your team to play.

You were upset at R.B for making you play down in age to make it more competitive. How do you think the other teams feel pitching BP to your team? They spent just as much and many times they spent more to be there.

Directors would rather loose 1 team then 3 or 4. You guys know that if the Fl, or teams from the west are not in the tourny it is a cake walk for your team.

You actually went on this site and called out other teams for not wanting to play your team,and you didn't have the facts.

By the way what was the score of your games against the 60's in Manassas?

Softball is a recreational sport and is supposed to be fun for all.

Donnie, Your team has taken the best players from a very big area of the country and you wonder why you don't have good competition to play?

You say teams should want to play better competition but you want to play all of the teams you have beaten before, maybe I just don't get it?

Your bat was purchased through combat canada and is being replaced by them. The 30 oz bats that are available are through A.D.STARR.

I said I don't have any on hand meaning my bats at the house or I would have sent you one of mine.

I have never seen a combat break at the knob, but if that did happened and I sold the bat it would be replaced. I have replaced any and all of the bats that have had a defect to date.

Misused or abused bats will not be replaced however.

Both this bat cannot be shaved unless you take a saw to it and cut the end off, and rolling does nothing to increase the perfomance. yes the bat is hollow.
