Discussion: Please, a story from anyone! Anything but Corona, Corona, Corona!

Many years ago, playing on a company team, night league, on a field that always had the wind blowing in and was very difficult to hit the ball out. I hit one out, before i could start running the bases (long time ago, before hit and sit) the umpire called me out,he stated that I stepped out of the batter box. I questioned him a bit but eventully made my way back to the dugout, where a teammate asked what happened, he ask the question in Spanish, to which I replied in Spanish that A-hole ump had called me out for stepping out of the box, the umpire heard me (I thought he did not understand Spanish) I was wrong, he walk over to the dugout and sent me home.

Moral of the story never under estimate ump.

LMAO.

Discussion: Catcher already has the ball when non-forced runner crosses commit line; I assume runner is out?

He can sit there and drink a soda and tell a joke if he wants, also seen runner try to call time out LMAO. sooner or later he will be out once catcher steps on plate with ball in hand.

Dave, As I understood the runner crossed the line therefor cannot turn around and cross back over the line if he does he is out.

no sir, if after crossing the line he turns around to go back to third base he is automatically out.

The umpire will make the call.

We play outside in minimal contact sport. We do not have large crowds attending our games in a confined space.

Sorry I say play ball.

He can dance all he wants between the bag and the line once he passes the line he cannot dance any longer, has to continue forward.

does not matter when the ball was accutaly caught, once the runner crossed the line he must continue towards the plate. If the catcher still has the ball and is on the plate the runner is out, double play inning over if thats the third out.

Chico, I guess I might have been mistaken, I only heard that term in SPA.

nporee, Impact player is not a SSUSA term, they rate players by triple A, Major or Major+, so maybe you are referring to another associations.

As stated you can only add certain amount of higher rated players until you get bump up to next level.

As a triple A team you can not add a Major plus player in the same age bracket.

Tim, I remember this same thing happening in a winter nationals in Naples, some years back. You and I had a great debate, right up to the moment you stated senior softball rules sir and I walked back to my position in right field.

I still tell that story today. LMAO

DirkPitt, I just got my Suncoast 13 inch endloaded 28oz last week, I am recovering from hip surgery (9-19-19) first time swinging in 3 months. On my third swing using 44/375 softball I cleared 300ft fence, can you say hot out of wrapper.

I was never a fan of 2 piece, I got over that pretty quick. I am a fan of the Suncoast bat.

Discussion: Opinions on being called out of the batters box

I understand the rule, I believe when this rule was written softball did not have a mat and the box was marked with this in mind, so when the ball hit the plate it was a ball, not a strike like it is today, do to the use of the mat.

So the box when using a mat should be extended the size of the plate forward.

Now a days we play on artificial turf which have the batters box already in place, that makes it harder on some players who have a large step forward and or run up to hit.I saw this happened a lot in Vegas (BFD)

Don't know how to solve this problem, but the facts are the facts.

You mean when the hottest bat was a Howard 36 oz, but you must agree that this organization needs to get with technology. I am not a computer major, but i do know that having access to the web page would allow scores to be entered.

Nancy, no doubt lives come way before any of this, my point is that the only place SSUSA is lacking is method of posting score.
I disagree with you when it come to posting scores. The only thing need is the capability to have access to the website and fill in the already posted brackets.

I believe it's management not wanting to give up that access to TD.

my 2 cents.

PS would very much enjoy sharing a Gatorade with you and discussing softball.

Good luck in 2020

I agree withjimperry19, one thing has nothing to do with the other. The money that is made with player and team registration, along with tournament entry fee, should be more than enough to cover the small cost of this software.

I think this has more to do with allowing access to the web page.

my 2 cents.

Discussion: Launch Angle

To get a good answer to your question requires payment. LOL

Go to youtube they have lots of videos that will help.

I believe that flatting the bat in your stance, will produce a bit of lift and will make the ball rotate counter spin which will also create lift.

Takes practice to change swing. One more thing, if you can video tape your swings you will see which ones lift ball.

Good Luck
