Discussion: WHO GETS THE BALL??


Like everything there is more than one way to look at it.

I don't know of any specific rule pertaining to this situation.

The outfielder in the field getting the ball after the play is over I believe is doing a courtesy, not a duty and is admirable.

But on the other hand, if the outfielder in the field goes 150' to get to the ball and goes another 300' to get into the dugout will obviously make him the last player off the field. If he is the first batter for his team in that inning, game time is being lost. If this is done several times through out the game, this could add up to a significant amount of game time is lost retrieving a dead balls. It would seem that the outfielder coming onto the field getting the ball would save time since he is going in that direction anyway.

Is repeating yourself all you can do?
You don't use facts, your just saying the same thing over and over only using different words.


Enough that old men insist on using the special bats or most of them will take their equipment and go home.

(b) Seniors insist on being able to use the special bats, hence ASA is now allowing them

ask your fellow old guys why they usually insist on using then or they won't play.


Blah, blah, blah...

Going by the numbers scientifically TESTED and PRINTED on the bat, the difference between the USSSA and Senior Bats is 0.01 or 1%.

Since Gary could only hit the ball 200' with a USSSA bat, given a few per cent margin of error, he will gain approximately 2-6 feet distance. Just because 200' Gary came to bat using a Senior Bat, the outfielders should only back up only about 10-20 feet.

For you guys that play outfield, how far will you back up if your told 200' Gary is now using a Senior Bat? 5-8 steps? Or will you back up all the way to the warning track?

IT IS A SLOW PITCH SOFTBALL, NOT A MAGIC WAND!!

I SEE NO ACTUAL ANSWER...
NO FACTS THAT SUPPORT YOUR COMMENTS.

So how about figuring it out in measurement?

If Gary can only hit a ball 200 feet using a USSSA (1.20) bat, then how much farther will Gary hit the same ball and every thing else being equal the same, with a Senior Bat(1.21)?

How far does Gary think he will hit the ball with the Senior Bat? 350'?

That does not sound like Trash Talk to me.

It sounds more like a "scouting report"!

I consider "Trash Talk" to be constant insults or put downs of the opposing player so as to piss him off, get his blood boiling or get on his nerves Watch Don Rickles, the "Sultan of Insult" do it. Sometimes too much "Trash Talking" can lead to a confrontation in the parking lot.

What you said on the ball field is funny, entertaining refreshing and creative. I would welcome you and others like you on a ball field as I see you as positive attitudes. However, I very seriously doubt it would be classified as "Trash Talk" which is basically putting down and negative towards opposing players.

Discussion: BATCH?

I keep reading that getting a bat made in the first or what ever "batch" preforms better or worse than another batch of that same make and model.

So my question is:

HOW MANY (NUMBER PLEASE) BATS IS IN A "BATCH"?

So let me get this straight.

Nobody will notice or suspect or care a "shaved" bat being used until only AFTER the ball is hit at the pitcher?

So as long as batters don't hit the ball up the center nobody cares what bat is used?

Are you able to hit a 44/375 softball 300+ feet with a senior bat?
If you can, than you should be able to do it with a warrantied bat as well. Just maybe not as often. So unless BP to you is nothing but home run derby, you shouldn't have much problem. Lots of 60's guys can do it.
