Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Staying behind the pitching screen

Boro, BJ is correct on it's a league thing. But, there are some very good senior leagues that allow the pitcher to pitch over the screen. Palm Springs for example, which is a fantastic and well organized league, allows over the screen, but pitcher must be behind the screen when ball contacts the bat. If you field the ball as a pitcher being outside the box when contact is made, it's a dead ball single.
On the other hand, Las Vegas Senior Assoc. won't allow over the screen, and must pitch from the pitching hand side of the screen, and you don't have to be behind screen at all. Different leagues create different rules (or lack thereof).
IMO, "IF" you are required to play with a screen, you should be required to use it for the reason it was placed in service.

Discussion: Seniors 75 and over allowed to use composite bats?

???? ALL Seniors get to use composite bats like the Miken UII. SSUSA sanctions composites in their rules as legal for all age seniors.

Discussion: Loose end cap

3M Marine Adhesive 5200. Did 4-5 for guys in our league, all wore out the bat or broke it and end cap never budged. Give it plenty of time to cure in the sun if possible. None of the ones I did had less than 2 weeks cure time.

Discussion: Speed up rules

Uncle Mike, talk to your pitcher. No excuse for not being ready to pitch when batter is ready to hit and outfielders are in place. (if he wears catcher style protection and he was on base or at bat, it will take him a touch longer) Most innings I could take 7-8 pitches if I desired before the batter and the outfielders were ready. I'd never think of holding up a game to throw warm-ups.

I agree with STLO, but with a different twist. One runner per inning and that individual runner can run only once per game. ASA had (or has) that rule. It would cut down on a ton of wasted time. That allows for having a runner available for a real injured player, not just a constant changing to put a speedster in for an average guy.

Discussion: 70 Major

You could very well be correct bill; I was just repeating what was said this morning at BP.......They must have thought the 11 AM game between Nicks and Prize was the winners bracket championship game, must not have been!
If you are right, bet the "if" was a good one to watch.

Interesting....Las Vegas and Clark County go out of their way not to miss a trick don't they? Thanks for the in depth explanation, your plan makes good sense.

Bat Vendors at BLD only, partly due to a taxation issue???? No sales tax in Nevada........wonder what kind of tax issue it could be.
