Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Using screen for pitcher

neck, that's the perfect position for the screen. Solves a lot of problems, doesn't have to be moved for left/right handed pitchers. NO illegal flat pitch.

IT'S ILLEGAL IN THE LVSSA (Las Vegas) TUES/THURS LEAGUE!!!!!!
League has you pitch from outside the screen on the bare hand side with the screen to the glove side of the rubber facing home approx. 3' in front of the rubber. Not allowed to be behind screen and pitch over, nor can you pitch from the glove side of the screen either.

Jerry, good idea. I would have done the same thing. Vacations and injury can cost us fees when we least expect it. Waste not, want not.......

Notice a couple of the teams with very deep concern about being moved up before the Worlds have entered Top Gun Tournament as "exhibition" teams.....smart, no more wins to judge them on.

Joe Nap, it would be great if the rules and regs were etched in stone and followed. At this time, that's not happening. You are dealing with a private company that can do whatever they desire to do. Rules or guidelines for movement to another division are subject to their desire to follow or not follow.
JB is partially correct, maybe even more so on who you know....

Not well attended, 24 teams I think. Even Scrap Iron only sent 9 of their 17 teams. Seems like most don't want to travel to that area, why?

Woody, I keep reading what you guys are saying, "conclude he has 8 points."
I just don't see the MVP getting points in writing anywhere! I'm missing it somewhere..... I can conclude the 8 points, but where is the proof written in the nomination system? That's where I can't see to get an answer.
I know MVP in SSUSA isn't included, that's why I quoted 4 MVP's in SPA. That Assoc. MVP is a more legit award of the players contribution.
Off to Catalina, I'll read the answer later in the week when I return. Thanks again.

Thanks Woody and Don. I have missed something and shall go back and re-read. The way I've read it, a player in Major/Major+ with 4 All Tourney or All world in the SPA and SSUSA Masters Championships and 4 MVP's in SPA would only have 4 points. If MVP's are treated like all world and all Americans like Don stated, where can I read that in the Nomination System? I'll re-read, but sure don't recall it being addressed. Once again, thanks for your help.

Jah#4, not sure I understand your message. As per BW (who is a HOF'er) posting of the "Points System Nomination Path", I see no mention of MVP points.

"The MVP for the World tournaments do count for the HOF points." I'm questioning your statement As a person with a "seat" on the HOF Selection Committee, please answer me this; if a 1st year Major player at age 50 goes to the SPA Worlds in Dalton and the SSUSA Masters Championship in Las Vegas and is selected MVP for both events, how many points does he have?

Matt43, MVP getting ZERO points towards the HOF for a best overall performance in a World Championship win doesn't make any sense to me. Hard to figure why the sixth best on that same team gets a point, but the MVP none! Being the LVSSA/SSUSA Worlds the only event you can earn HOF points in SSUSA makes the quandary even more perplexing.
How about points being made available in other large and very competitive events like Rock n' Reno?

Discussion: Arrogance can hurt a pitcher

Bruce, IF there is going to be a screen, I agree with your placement. My gripe is IF the reason for a screen is the safety of the pitcher, how can you not require him to be behind the screen? Either use the screens as intended, protecting the pitcher, or get them off the field!
Associations hiding behind placing a screen on the field to dodge liability without mandatorily requiring use of the screen would be on the loosing end of any pitcher hit by batted ball injury.

Simple question then Omar, if you don't HAVE TO go behind the screen with each pitch, please explain the purpose for said screen!

Discussion: Arrogance can hurt a pitcher

galasater, that's not true in the Las Vegas Senior League. Screen mandatory, but not mandatory to stand behind it! Screen must be slid to the glove side far enough to permit pitching around the screen while maintaining contact with the pitching box; no pitching around from glove side of screen. No pitching over the screen. Screen is kinda used more as another fielder.
"IF" a league uses a screen for safety, the pitcher should be required by rule to be behind the dang thing after releasing the ball. Otherwise, put the screens back in the utility sheds...

Don, I just got a new 25oz Melee 2 in trade. I hit it Friday at BP, nice bat. When it's got some swings on it, I'll bring it to Mondays BP and you can try it.
