Discussion: World Championships action and team pictures

the joiful is a mini tournament between US, Canada, and Japan, with the ladies playing thursday and friday @ Rose Mofford. My team, Curty Lo's Ladies will be helping to host. Check with Terry H @ headquarters for schedule. Should be a fun international event. The mens team Baystate Bombers 55 is coming the next weekend.

Discussion: A baserunner giving himself up and leaving field after being declared safe

once the runner left the playing field, passed the third base foul line, he is out of play and time should have been called.

Discussion: A baserunner giving himself up and leaving field after being declared safe

if it were not caught before a dead ball situation, such as the plate umpire calling time, then the runner would be declared out when the ball became live for being off the base. There is no penalty for not being on the base during a dead ball. If the plate umpire also was unaware of the call for some reason, he would naturally call time out, and even aware of the call, should call time when the player entered the dugout. The plate ump would then put the ball in play, calling for the pitch and rule the runner out.

i can't find where any one has said that the strike zone should be the same for everyone?

sorrry, got the directions back ass wards. Should be ball travels vertically, zone drawn horizontally.

Dirty, this is true if the ball is traveling on a vertical plane, but shouldn't it be more attuned to the arc of the pitch? in slo pitch it would seem to me that the zone is drawn across the plate vertically but the pitch,if legal, crosses horizontally.Just how I see it.

Discussion: What was it like when slowpitch was born?

about 6-8 years ago Worth published a hard cover book about the history of softball that was an excellent reference. I don't remember the actual name or author, but if you contact someone at worth they may be able to help. It included stories of presidents and hollywood stars playing with a passion for the game that should be called "Americas Game" as I believe it is the most participant sport of the country.

Discussion: Plate & Mat as Strike

I like the plate as a strike because the true strike zone is the area above the plate, shoulder to knee and it seems that in order for the ball to hit the plate it must pass through this zone. this is not necessarily true as by the mentioned curves, low, fast balls, etc, but if not illegal then it meets the requirement. As an umpire the mat takes the questionable call away. As a pitcher it creates a consistent zone and as a hitter it leaves little to "discuss" thereby speeding up at bats. Just how I see it. A good history of softball was around about 6-8 years ago from Worth and it may still be available, but memory escapes me as to actual name of this publication

Discussion: What a way to go out!

My team, baystate bombers+,played 60 major all year without winning anything, but that is where we belong after being moved up from AAA. We didn't think we belonged there especially being from Massachusetts where the season is short, but decided to try it out and see. we didn't win very much, but have enjoyed the experience. phoenix was a disappointment for us,as the West Coast teams were very strong and we were not as competitive as we had hoped, but we will continue to play.I,m a little surprised that such a quality team would not accept the challenge of a higher division and thereby test themselves. Just my thoughts.

Discussion: Demo bats available to hit in Phoenix....

if there is enough interest,reps,etc. I'm sure we could make it happen. Rose Mofford is a large facility.I'll be there for as long as it takes!! I'm involved in some other activities from 10 'til noon, and will be at the complex most of the day-- managers meeting a must for me. We will have some of the surviving members of the original All American Girls Professional Baseball League ( A League of Their Own) in attendance and they are of primary concern for me. All are welcome and hope to see the new equipment.

Paco , what restrictions? Player to stay at level of last full time team? Would you use the bordering states rules? So many questions, but viable.

Discussion: Should a bat be confiscated

this could be a good idea. As a deterrant to intentionally hitting middle. Mishit balls are rarely as "hot" as a well hit shot and give the pitcher a little more wiggle room for protection. Knowing you may lose a bat for the remainder of even a game would surely stop some from goung there. I have talked to many hitters that go box intentionally that say it is the easiest place to get a hit, and these guys would be affected by this rule. These same guys usually carry multiple bats to cover breakage any way.

Discussion: Bat Cheating...

what is in place concerning bat testing in the event of injury? Will the bat (and ball) be automatically confiscated? There are many scenario's here where there may also be a personal responsibility.

Discussion: looking for old stuff

I'm trying to arrange a history of softball, including antique/ outdated equipment.Most senior players are familiar with the earlier equipment and rules, etc. I am seeking to build a hall of fame type "display" from the archives and basements and even personal accounts from the beggining days of our game. Perhaps a shrine of sorts to our heritage. I have a ball and glove from my dad that was used on board an aircraft carrier during WW II and a collection of bats and gloves that I personally used and would like to add to. Intent is to get the stuff verified and maybe find a permanent location (Hall Of Fame??) to display it. My e-m= curt_01092@yahoo.com, ph# 413 436 5399, pob 432 West Warren, Ma.01092. Anything, even/especially memories are welcomed. Thanks!! Curt Snow: Baystate Bombers 60 Major.

Discussion: T O C, again

fantastic job by SUSSA staff: Hitting clinic with "Bogey" and all the other features were fantastic including the
mini tourney games. Met and played with some new people, and despite the weather had a great time. Surely reccomend this venue to all senior players.The staff was really on their toes considering the air line cancellations and conditions at the fields. GREAT TIME and very well run. Thanks
