time limit in AZ
In half if not more of our games, we lost an inning due to the time limit. We were rushed only to sit around and wait for the ground crew to come out. (they don't need to come out each game)
The we would get loose, hit some pepper, bs with the other team. My point is that we had more than enough time to get those ininnings in. Brain trust, let's play the whole game!

My guess is you also lose innings to guy walking on and off the field. Not that hard to hustle.

Time limits are horrible. As are run limits. SOOOOOO many other ways to save time, like hustling.

I believe you, but that is interesting. I never saw a time limit until I started playing Seniors a few years ago.

"Great" contribution Dave. And what is up with a hyphenated last name?

Unlike little people who sit on the sidelines, complaining about everything, some of us don't hide in the shadows of anonymity. Most of the games we play in, I see guys hustling in and out. It's just slower, because we are older. As for complete games, I thing the majority of the games in Phoenix were. The 1and1 could help improve that. Just get in the box and hit.
By the way Gary, were still waiting to hear your pearls on timing so we can all hit 1.000
The hyphenated name was my fathers. Any clue on yours?

I tried a few times in Az to move the game along by standing next to the batter's box ready to go as soon as the preceding inning ended. But nothing would move it along. The umpires want their breaks too.

geez one out of a possible 28 batters ( maybe more)

if you give the pitcher 3 pitch and get the batter in there you can and should make at least 6 inning maybe 7!
why do the need more? no infield ball after 3 inning! if you need to stay loose warm up while your team is batting!

softballer,we as a team try to hustle in and out.when i pitch i don't need any warmups after the 2nd max,same with the other pitchers on my team.we use those 3 pitches to quickly throw back and forth to the inf's,keeping an eye for the batter to get to the box,to keep our arms loose.how about having the batter stay in the box,instead of being like nomar and readjusting after every pitch.
we have always(basically)had time limits at most levels of ball for the last 25 yrs(in sac it was 60 min for ASA,and 70 for USSSA leagues) and more than likely got in 7 inning 90% of the time.why are we all of sudden getting up in tizzy about it now.
