Discussion: new ratings in December

17black,
If you won a tourney that is eligible for TOC play, you were rated In Dec for the rating you were for that WIN. I believe. This is mentioned in the SSUSA reply, if you read it.
After the TOC event you will go to the one where you are now rated at, MAJOR according to your post.
Always been this way some things never chance others change all the time for what I call moneys sake. Time limits, run limits, rule changes, Venues, etc.
Still the best game out there though.
Stay healthy.

Discussion: Courtesy Runner From Home

!. true rules, but if in place, live with it.
2. I didn't make the rules the BOD did for the league.

BS on in the mail I didn't put that did I. And yes note form a Dr (Temporary) or one who wouldn't be elegible for a placard.
Those are the rule.
I could care less about other leagues. I only posted for what we have that is done as part of this discussion on the issue.
I'v e swung at a ball just to avoid a walk hoping for a better pitch next time too. No big deal. Who migh like to walk...maybe someone that can't hit. Most are there to hit I's say.
Have a good year.

Discussion: Miken Question

They call it marketing. Not the only company that does this. Some cost less too but you have to study bats and read the info out on them as well as feedback.
Many great bats out there other than Miken.

Discussion: Courtesy Runner From Home

League here in resno area,
They alor runner from home iif have a Dr's note or disabled placard. BUT only allowed to 1. get to first, no extra bases. 2. Must be last person out. unless that person happens to be on base them t's the one before.
These work well here. No picking runners for this but when person who ran get to first then courtesy runner can come in. Only CR's 2 per inning though.
We also use that line but outside the box, right angle to home & base line.
Also these with CR's at home bat at end of lineup.

Might check the Am civil libertys disabilities law on the other aspects for competative events though. I believe there was a suit some years ago regarding this type is issue and was won, but might not have been about softball.

Omar
Why sould he be not allowed, if he can still defend a position and maybe even hit? Doesn't he can play well, especially OF, but at least he is in the game,.... sort of.

Discussion: New age eligibilty rules for 75s and 80s - Reactions?

Fred and Omar, your both correct but do see the other side as Sisavic mentions. That said I also believe the teams will drop some in order to get the younger guys given it better players for sure. Not a good overall situation, and a catch 22 for managers.
IMO it might be getting hard tto recruit or keep the older teams together for many reasons, sad state of affairs given that rules actually punish the older teams in certain ways.
Next will be add two 63 yr olds player on 65's teams
Two 58 yr olds players for 60's teams
One player for each for 50 and 55's who are 49. But in reality they could play at 48. Same applies to the above for 1 yr earlier I'd think...
But what the hell they bring in the teams, money and all that goes with it. High fees, why, not much has cost more unless your paying minimum wage, Low turnout brackets, questionable awards at many, great events management wise, only a few Umps questioned, list could continue but why are not all umps on the same page other than the "judgement calls"?
ok I'm rambeling....
Happy New Year all.
Can't wait for the reply on this one....

Discussion: Why so many shaved senior bats

Some were baanned but not for long. One is a director. Lifetime should have been, it but might still be 5 or 10 years depending on if freely giving up bat to be checked or not.
Last time I was in St G they got two guys with them. 2007.
Not really checked into that anywhere, I'm aware of.

Worth PST had them back about 2000- or even before. I had two but not 1st ones that came out. I believe the EST also had them. they were out about '98.

Discussion: Shoulder replacement

Expect that sling part had both worked on before twice ea..
Contemplating having one done while awaiting for neck and back fusions to work their "magic". lmao
My tendons are rolled up so it would likely take cadaver parts to do as you say. I won't let them take form my legs.

For either of you die you have a torn bicept tendon at all?
I've contemplated this but each arm has lost one. You only have two to start with. Not good.

Discussion: Why so many shaved senior bats

Venturing a guess here I'd say more were rolled than shaved. Read the ads on web sites or CL.
Nothing is done anywhere I know of cause its ok to sell them but illegal to use them... hypocrisy.

Discussion: A Question 4 U Bat/Math Geeks

imo, Since no two people let alone a group like here can hit consistantly at the same bat speed rate each time or with same power, you answer would be... depends on person at that time and other external forces prevailing at the time ball was hit.

Discussion: rules question

Under tournaments above look at the rules book and the division break down for the run limits. It's all there.
But for boundaries your correct, unless you play M+ I believe. I forget about Majors but that's all there in the rules.

If no touch line or plate, I'd say, out. as you wrote this here.

Discussion: RULEING ON PLAY

I'd say the line is considered same as is the batters box issue, on the line ( in the box) is as good as crossing it.
But no mention of him crossing a line for home plate or touching a 2nd home plate.
As for my thought on it, Depends on if the ball thrown to home plate was caught and catcher was on the mat before runner crossed either the line for it or touched the 2nd base for it.
You can tag before runner reaches the 20 foot line, but not after. There lies the issue steping on THAT line the same as the batters box lines.

Discussion: BATTERS BOX

Your welcome.
Should be in the rule book on here. Maybe too in searches. I know I posted some a few years ago on this subject. Team I was on wanted a few players and I actually inquired about them. A couple played 2 levels up and blew the non move up issue. I didn't go to event due to that, they were smeared.
Always ask HQ they are there to help as well.

Discussion: BATTERS BOX

Correct..... BUT..... if any one or more player(s) has player M+ in last 2-3 years, it changes things. Even if not, it could change your team depending on the "point" count they use for players & or teams.
Contact George at home office and he will let you know player info in due time. Better safe than sorry later.
