Discussion: A thought....

Our San Diego Senior Softball league recently adopted the "last out" rule for courtesy runners. For the most part, it has served itself well. There are no limits on the number of times a CR is used - you just keep going further back on the outs as you need to.

There are only two players in our 70-odd plus membership who have complained about it. One was the manager who abused it and substituted a "rabbit" at will as part of a strategy, and the other was the rabbit.

Nobody else.

Discussion: Foul out to catcher

Our league heard that the rule regarding a foul out to the catcher had recently changed. The prior rule was that the foul ball had to arc over the catchers head. The purported rule change eliminated that, and supposedly now says only that the catcher must cleanly catch the ball regardless how high it arcs. Is this true?
