Discussion: WORLDS AND NEW 4 DAY FORMAT

Hey Dave, sounds like Mickey Mouse is calling SSUSA.

Disney has a great complex, Boombah open another great large complex and now space coast also has a large complex too offer, plus the small venues, just a few miles from Orlando. The highways have been very much improved.

Seems like Vegas is making a bit harder for SSUSA and players.

So come to the sunshine state, September it's a great time in Florida to play ball.

For the west coast and older teams(who may be retired) may not be a problem, but for east coast and younger teams who need to take an extra day off from work, may cause issues.

Discussion: Playing Different Class Teams

My only issue with the home runs being cut to three, the pitcher is now at risk from the big hitters, who have to swing down.

Discussion: Dudley Lift 12" Snior Bat

Bigboza, I agree with you, seems every new bat reviewed is the best ever till the next shinny new paint job comes out. At the end of the day 1.21 is what it is.

Thank you for stating "need to put swings to break in" I am often asked what is the best senior bat out there, my reply is simple, the one in your hand. The old saying still applies it's not the arrow it's the indian.

my 2 cents.

Discussion: questions to catchers and umpires

Nancy, thank you for the clarification.

I know the rules are different for certain leagues, but this was at a tournament. I was told to let it go due to fact the TD was not on site at the moment.

I would have loved to see the reactions of my teammates if we had gotten the call. I guess I will allow in the future rules to be broken or uninforced, so that I don't get criticized or "slow the game down".

like they say to me all the time "Manny being Manny"

Discussion: questions to catchers and umpires

Nancy thank you, I know you are a good ump, we have spoken many a time.

My questions still is, if he will not make the call, what can be done next. In my opinion rules are rules. In this case we still won the game, but that's not not the point.

To top it off at the end of all games on Saturday I ran into him and asked was he off the bag and he said yes.

So, I don't understand why he choose to not make the call "tight Ball game" maybe. Still not acceptable in my book.

And to top it off, I was criticized by my teammates for holding up the game. WOW!!!!

So I need your help, how does one proceed when an issue likr this happens?

Discussion: questions to catchers and umpires

Nancy, that is what i thought. He would not even acknowledge me when I asked.

That is my question, what is the best way to communicate to an ump, that he needs to make a call and not to be an instructor.

Softball4b sorry for the misspell, auto correct got the best of me, did not read back what I wrote.

The answer is simple off the bag when a pitch is thrown automatic call out.

Discussion: questions to catchers and umpires

I know the answer to this question, but what I really want to know is what to do next.

Bases loaded, outs don't matter. Pitchers pitches ump looks over to third base and ask the runner on third weather he is a runner or a coach. player responds runner.

So what would you do as a catcher and also if you are the manager of the team.


Help.

Discussion: Power fading

one thing to do is video your swings and see which swing produced the furthest traveled ball, and try to duplicate in each at bat.

but with all that said need to hit the weights in order to keep up the strength.

Discussion: Get rid of the 1-1 count

Yeah, give me back my black magic and put in a blue dot or red dot and let me run around the bases when one goes over the fence!

I don't recall the time limits back in the day, games pretty much ended after 7 and the count was 0 & 0. I missed out on playing latter part of the nineties because of coaching my son. I enjoyed when I or a teammate hit a HR and we celebrated at home plate.

Today someone hits one out and it's par for the course.

As far as the 1 and 1 I really don't care if the first pitch is strike I am swinging, what ever the starting count is.

Discussion: Stealing other teams Softballs

I don't believe it's stealing if you just don't care enough to go and pick them up yourself.

If you drop a dollar on the ground and watch it fly away and don't bother to go after it. why should anyone bring it to you.

specially if you are at home drinking a beer.

my 2 cents.

Discussion: Stealing other teams Softballs

Ok let me get this straight, first if during a game which my team is playing I am retrieving our home run softballs I find softballs from the team we are playing against I will return them. But if I am out in the woods or sometimes swamp and I find balls of teams that have played earlier in the day and have gone home and did not pick them up because they did not want to get there feet dirty, I am sorry that ball is going to my BP bucket.

The same way is I don't want to get my feet wet they can keep my balls.

just remember we live in Florida and play in the south, a lot of fields with deep bushes and water behind them.

It's not stealing if you don't go get them.

Discussion: what happens when.

Staff, what happens when a 55 major plus player turns sixty and wants to move into that age group or lower age group.

1) what is his rating?

2) What if he still wants to play 55, how low can he play. I.E. AAA?

3) How does he affect lower level team?

Looking for clarity.

Thank You

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Runner's right to the base

So let me get this straight, you want the runner who is on the bag to move, so the fielder can make a play on a pop up.

Ok, so he moves off the bag, the fielder catches the ball and proceed to tag him, because he is off the bag. Double play?

I don't think so.

The runner does not have to move, nor shall he move in the direction off the ball. Just stay on the bag.

The umpire shall make the call, not the players.

If the runner simply stays put, there is no obstruction or interference.

Live ball, defense make a play.
