Discussion: Should I buy a new 'old' bat?

OZ, I think Alan has the best answers to this questions but I thought the bats were going to be grandfathered in...but seeing your dates, is 2023 how far they will be grandfathered....sounds like the early 2000s ASA bat re-certification that was a complete joke...hopefully USSSA doesn't screw themselves by losing teams that don't feel like buying new bats in 3 yrs...i know that sounds weird but some of the senior bats we use today are 3-5 yrs old and still doing fine

Discussion: Kicking the ball to a teammate legal?

i saw it happen in a pro baseball game and the guy was called out...i recently had a play where a ball was hit to 2B and the fielder grabbed the ball with his bare hand and tagged the bag with his glove...ump called him out which is correct on a force play but on a tag play, the ball has to be in the hand that tags the runner

Discussion: NORTHEAST CHAMPIONSHIPS SYRACUSE, NY

I got a mask with replaceable filters at smash it sports online for 10 dollars for mask and 20 dollars for 25 filters....they are sporty looking, comfortable and you can use them anywhere else too....but like Shark said, this is the 1st Northeast tourney, so let's fill it up....it's a good venue and we will be on the field again!!!

Discussion: Catchers will wear a mask

Just wear the mask if you catch, forget all the what ifs and so on....the rule has been stated, stay away from the position if you object or stay on the bench and AH

If you are sick, or have been around someone who is sick, you should stay home...but you also have a month to get better...let's play ball as safely as we can and be smart and take whatever precautions are needed to protect everybody

check with your county executives about returning to your home state....NY doesn't have a quarantine rule but I know if we go to NH or Maine or Vermont with NY license plates, they may quarantine us.....hope to see you soon...we are phase 3 Friday June12th...only 1 more phase to go unto we are good to have team sports etc

Discussion: NORTHEAST CHAMPIONSHIPS SYRACUSE, NY

last I heard, we have 40 teams now entered as of June10th for Syracuse...in case anyone is concerned, we are moving to Phase 3 of opening up June12th and Phase 4 (softball and team sports) July 1st....we are not NYC, we are CENTRAL NY state....NYC is 4-5 hours away so any team that is concerned about Covid and infection rates, Syracuse is deemed extremely safe, thus the quicker opening of the area....fields are in great shape and it would be good to start the tourney season in the northeast with a big turnout....see you in a few weeks

Discussion: Corona Virus (COVID-19) Part II

as much as I want to play softball, I don't think it is a good idea for people of many different states to meet together and then go back home to their respective states...the idea is to try and contain the spread and by traveling 6 states away and stopping along the way, there is definitely a threat to contact at least 1 person who is contagious....there is a statistic that says 1 person affects 2.3 people...multiply that by the number of guys we have going to a tourney and traveling in between, and you can see how things can get worse...it has been a long winter as always and we all want to get out but a few months more is probably needed to get rid of this...just my opinion, thanks

Discussion: Corona Virus (COVID-19)

It's probably best that teams from different states don't go into other states right now...just think of all the people that will come into contact with each other and then bring back possible infections to respective states....it might just accelerate the problem and possibly infect areas that weren't affected....we just have to ride this out and socially isolate as best and miserably as possible

Our team has decided not to go...we were in 55 majors....schools are closing in NY and I think things will get worse before they get better

Discussion: New melee

Dirk, how many swings did you get on the Suncoast...I found it is way more durable than the Adidas as mine were getting 120 swings before they broke...My Suncoast had over 400 before it broke...time is not as important as swings although I did try to see how long the Suncoast would last within the 60 day warranty...after 400, I said it was good and brought it to florida and it broke after 20 more swings

yeah, it's kind of hard to make hotel reservations 3 weeks before a tournament when 107 teams are looking for the same rooms....I called a few weeks ago and they told me Jan 2nd "we will release the field assignments, just like every other tourney after registration is over"....I just googled the fields and they can range from 3-6 miles away to 20-25 miles away from hotels....
