Discussion: Player Ratings

i play in this league and we have some unusal circumstances. we are in new england- which means a limited number of players. our league is spread out over a large area, with teams playing home and away series, often 50 to 75 miles apart. This leads to players wanting to play with their "home boys," mostly because of travel requirements- read car pooling. The other issue is that tournament players like to play together as much as possible, for obvious reasons. We have a short season, very small player pool, limited facilities and tight schedule so keeping teams interested is important to keep the league going. Most teams pick players from the closly surronding areas, and we have 2 divisions of play- one for older and less athletic players, so there are opportunities for any one interested. Drafting is not in the best interest of the league because players don't like to "travel" to their home field, especially if it's distant. I may have been one of the players that Fred complains about, but after 2 undefeated seasons I chose to go to another- hometown- team to play with guys I know. I don't have an answer to this but for sure it SHOULD be about playing.

Discussion: pitching screens

we use a screen in our local league and any ball that hits any part of it is a foul ball and treated like any foul ball i.e. on third strike it is an out. Thrown ball is live. Screen is placed in front of the mound not more than 6 inches to either side. pitcher must adhere to current pitching rules.We use this for senior & co-ed. I have not heard a single complaint.

in my original post, I suggest an alternative to the current rule and nobody has addressed it?

Discussion: courtesy runners

I think that this is a rule that can and sometimes is abused. In a recent tourney, I witnessed a team that used 3 courtesy runners every inning, that were not playing defense nor batting. While they used other runners also, these 3 fella's only ran. My team was on the first base side, so these guys came to our dugout at the end of their defensive inning so as to be prepared. This was within the scope of the rule. Of course they were all fast and knowledgable on the bases. The real asset they provided was fresher legs and arms ( fatigue comes in other forms also)at the plate and on defense, especially at the end of a Tourney. I commend the coach for finding guys to do this!! However, my interpretation of the intent of the rule is not to gain an advantage, but to keep players in the game longer career wise. If a player is injured, do what we can to help him play, but if he can run in the out field he should be able to run bases. We all use the rule to our advantage, myself included, to go with a faster guy in situations. I would like to see the rule be modified to read that courtesy runners come from the line up players. This would include EH. I believe this might get more batters, EH's, in the game at strategic spots, so as to run for another player. But also treat the team with 20 players equal to the team that plays 10 or 11 guys when we get to Sunday, where fatigue from length of service comes into play.If defensive players are running for others, a good coach will be more restrictive of runners, prefering to keep all healthy. My version might read: Courtesy runner must be someone in the active line up, including all defensive players that have have been removed from the game. I realise that a shifty coach will figure out a way around it. Any one else?

we had a "senior Baystate Bombers- now 60+ guys, that won @ the first 3 T.O.C.. I believe I am the only player to play on both teams, with 5 appearances. Great fun and a really good format, especially considering the extra curricular activities.

A similar situation in our fall co-ed open league. The ruling at the time: ALTERED BAT= ILLEGAL. This was appealed and the ruling was upheld at the state level.

Discussion: joiful

thanks to all that played in the Joiful tourney and to the staff- especially Connie Stewart and husband Jeff. it was fun and a joyfull experience!! The reception was also quite entertaining though my team had to play late and arrived late. Jeff did a great job as coordinating umpire and except for the heat it was a marvelous event.
