Dave
Thanks for getting back so quick.
When it was said at thr meaning that they were hotter then senior bats it threw me for a loop. Wasn't until after when talking with another coach I thought I should follow up.

Thanks again

Discussion: Asa bats

Lb
One way or another I don't plan on using an asa bar for seniors. I just want to follow up because I go to world meeting every year and its the first time mentioned it. So I trust their judgment and if they are that hot I don't need them at league. I also need a plan for my umpires to enforce it uniformly.

Discussion: Asa bats

Can someone confirm the asa bat ban that ssusa brought up at the coaches meeting in Vegas at worlds? The way I understood it was that the new asa bats were hotter then senior bats and cannot be used in ssusa. Question is, are there new models only? Is the same asa stamp used? What changed from last year to this year?
Purpose for me is to follow ssusa ban at home whe I'm league director. Currently we allow asa/usssa new stamp bats.
Just trying to know how to enforce this.

Discussion: Commitment line

Thanks all
Dave
As silly as it sounds it happened.
We use the ssusa commitment line safety rule at the park im at for all leagues. This case came up in a co ed playoff game. The runner started to retreat being just a few feet from scoring line. The throw to catcher was off line.
My question came into play when discussing the ruling with my umpire after the game. ( I'm the softball director)
You gave me the answer I needed.
As long as not tagged by defense and runner doesn't re cross commitment line or slide they can basically RUN AROUND lol

The only retreat type of call I could ever imagine would be batter/ runner going to first base. That's where the question here came into thought.
Thanks again Dave.

Discussion: Commitment line

Classification
When in commitment zone can runner retreat at all but still be im zone?
Situation
Player crossed commitment line catcher fields throw and tries to tag runner. Runner back pedals 5 feet then runs around catcher and scores.
I know any tag in zone is a safe call. I know if runner crosses back over commitment line they are out.
What im unsure of is can runner retreat at all within zone?

Why would they do this, I know but it happened. As director I want to make sure correct call was made.

Discussion: Runner clarification

Oh ok got it. I read it as the very next batter period but that's only related to a score. If dinner is on second or 3rd and a ttam v catches it they can appeal

Discussion: Runner clarification

Quick understanding of this rule

8.5(5) COURTESY RUNNER OFFICIALLY IN THE GAME
A courtesy runner must report to, and be acknowledged by, the umpire before play resumes. A courtesy runner
may enter the game only prior to the first pitch to any batter. A courtesy runner is in the game when he touches the
base. If a courtesy runner is determined illegal, he will be called out upon touching the base and no other courtesy unner is allowed. The original runner may not return as the runner. An illegal courtesy runner on base is
committing a continuing violation and may be called out upon appeal at any time while on base or, if he scores, prior
to the first pitch to the next batter.

Trying to understand how can a runner score before the next pitch?
Follow up if cr runs illegally but not caught until they advance to another bag he becomes legal correct?

Discussion: You make the call

To be clear the rf played close enough to throw runner out if it was caught. The other team joked because rf left ball in right and said can we appeal? We gave him crap, we all laughed. It was all in fun but later we wondered what the call would be. Can they run back out and get thur ball for appeal? Etc.
Thanks for the clarification of that rule

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: You make the call

Just for knowledge wanted an answer on a play we had that didn't become an issue but made both sides wonder after game.

Scenario

1st and 3rd one out. batter hits single to right field over the head of fielder. Runner on 3rd scores for 7th run of inning. RF leaves ball in outfield and runs in to change sides.
Both runner on first and batter go to dugout without touching next bag. All but 3 defensive players entered their dugout when jokingly defense said they didn't touch the next bags. Ball was left in right field. Can they go back out and grab ball to appeal bags? Offense was already taking the field.
I can see where both runners are out once they entered dugout but can also see where defense gave up on play so ball is dead.
What's your opinions?

Discussion: called out

Wondering if you can appeal your new rule suggestion if approved. I agree with rule except when the batter's box is chalked incorrectly. I been experienced countless times thur box made too thin. 34 sometimes 30 inches wide but umpire will insist on enforcing ut.
Could a player really be ejected when the box is wrong?
I guess maybe it's a dual edge sword. If erased hote could a director measure?
Your thoughts?

I guess more people want to bash ssusa for bracket updates then respond to this lol. Much rather have a variety of vendors then care about a topic being re hashed every year. That's just me though.

Discussion: Products and vendors

I didn't see a polling option but lets try anyway. Admin please delete if people start drifting.

Simply put I ask players to respond for it or against it

based on outcome the hope is SSUSA can bring this up at National meeting. Maybe develop an event charge that can total what SSUSA currently gets for a yearly sponsor. This way at large events we can have several apparel, bat and softball related vendors for players to chose from. 5to 15 vendors at a fee each big event could raise more then the few big company yearly charge. Just a thought, I know Vegas allows it as its done in ASA and USSSA large events



WOULD YOU, AS A PLAYER LIKE TO SEE A WIDE VARIETY OF VENDORS AT THE BIG EVENTS AS COMPARED TO THE LIMITED MAJOR EVENT SPONSORS?



Thanks for all you do SSUSA see ya in a few days
