Discussion: Rocky Mountain Championship Results

Thank you Dave, that helps. Wasn't totally aware of the "exemption" players as an option.
So often, we stay home because of injuries or prior player commitments, nice to know we have another avenue to exercise when we have the majority of players ready to go, but too short of bodies to make it happen.

Dave, just make it a general question. Is it possible for a team pick up 2 or more players from the same age and same level for a TOC Qualifier tourney, then give them back to their original team? Won't need a crystal ball, just knowledge of the rules. I'm sure the rule covering this must be there, but I'm unable to find it. Just asking for help in locating such rule. I would like to be able to do same with my next years team.

Confused. How can a team that played in the championship game do so with the 3-4 batters from another good team not in tourney, then give those players back after the tournament? What is the rule that covers this situation?

Discussion: Looking for a Senior League Rule

stick, just like the Stote/Rock debate, "stoopid bats", pitcher headgear problems, we won't get everyone on the same page. The GSL rule of 1 runner per inning is plenty. Running is part of being a softball player, as is fielding, throwing, and hitting. ASA used to have the best running rule: a courtesy runner can only be used once per inning and that runner can only run once per game.
You just have to face the fact that some players aren't the complete package. Teams must accept player short comings if they want that player on their team.

Doker.............NO. You may talk with a pit boss and maybe if you've spent enough they MAY give you a pass. Locals don't like it a bit either!

LVSSA Tues/Thurs top league, everyone hits, batter can't walk. In the case of 4 balls or wanting to put a person on for defensive reasons, anyone goes in to run except the batter. Batters all get their swings each at bat.

Discussion: 1st basemens mitt

ANY glove smaller than a garbage can lid SHOULD be OK for a pitcher! 1st base mitt used on the mound would be of no major defensive advantage.

gray, do over is one option given the manager in the ASA rule book for mitt infraction. SSUSA umpire will go to ASA rules when not covered in SSUSA rules.

Not SSUSA yet Bob. Mitts only for 1st and catcher...

Discussion: 75+ age rule question for 2018

Whatever age you turn on your birthday in 2018 is your playing age for 2018. So the answer would be yes.

Thanks TexasTransplant, I was unaware of the 501(c)3 status. Sorry Wolfman, thought the organization was a partnership plain and simple. Forge on.

Discussion: MONEY

Quite frankly Wolfman, you don't have any right to see the financial workings of any private company. If you came in my restaurant and asked what I spent my money on I personally would tell you it's none of your business.
Publically traded companies though have financial records for viewing.

Discussion: Roaster

Assume you mean "roster." If a team forfeits a 1st game due to pregame injury or serious health problem and doesn't have enough to legally start a game; and, if they add to the roster with legal player so they can play and not be out entire tournament expense, what's the harm?
If it's a tourney where a qualified roster is the rule (T.O.C., World Championship), that's a different kettle of fish.

Discussion: Changing Format for 70 Year Old Division

baseballbill Losers bracket is the nature of the beast, I wouldn't want it any other way. I'm also a 70's, and like the challenge presented with current format. I do understand your plight though, it is a mountain if you hit the losers bracket early.

As posted below in your other "trump rocks" post, the ISA X-ROCK is the best.

Discussion: trump rocks

norgenorth, disagree with you. I just put my new in the wrapper Rocks and Stotes on the postal scale, all the Stotes were lighter than all the Rocks. I had 12 Rocks at 6.4-6.55oz. 8 Stotes were 6.25-6.35oz. As a pitcher, I find no difference in accuracy, curve and screwball are the same, and I don't throw a knuckleball so can't comment. I would guess the lighter ball would be better for the knuckle, assuming the seams are the same height.

Slip if the tongue Staff, or slip of the typing fingers! I know that, I work at both of them. Had the upcoming Springs on my mind I guess. Thanks for correcting.....

Discussion: Surgery

Mannjo, I had TURP in 2013. Your Dr. is being very safe with you. A month is very adequate, I was back playing in a couple of weeks. My procedure was in mid afternoon, went home the following afternoon. Took it real easy 1st day home and just rested, 2nd day up and about and fairly normal. After that, pretty much back to normal schedule only with greater flow. Did scare the heck out of myself quite awhile after recovery when I passed chunks of blood. My Doc said it was normal for quite awhile to have areas that are healing break off. I passed some blood occasionally for about 6 months. No pain, good to go fairly quickly. Good luck.

Cat, LVSSA/SSUSA Spring Worlds and the Masters Championship uses the X-ROCK-ISA-Y ball. We used the ASA Rock in Bullhead City this past week, I thought it was a good ball that held up well. (it wasn't overly hot, 70's, so no way to tell if it would be heat affected)

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.
