Tim, like always you are the man.

Thanks for posting scores, it would be nice if we could see all the others scores in the other brackets, but a least one is better than none.

Stay safe and again great job.

Booyah, i guess he is jealous because when he was forty they did not have this division.

My son is 33 and wants to swing my bat all the time. I can't blame him.

good luck to all in worlds.

Discussion: Happened to us

ok let's try this one on. runner on second and third no outs, ground ball to shortstop he throws to first and batter/runner is out. runner on second heads to third, runner on third does not go home and is standing on third, when runner from second gets there. they both occupy third both standing on third at the same time. I wait to see who is going to step off first, neither moves I first tag the runner that was on third then the runner from second tries to go back to second I tag him while he's off the bag.

whats the call?

Dave just a FYI I did not argue the call LOL.

the umpires got together and only called one of the two runners out. the runner going from second to third.

a question along the same lines, a team wins worlds in a 55 majors bracket now that team jumps up one skill level, but what happens if that team moves up in age to 60 will they be considered major plus or majors at the next age group?

Discussion: LOOKING FOR GOOD 60AAA PLAYERS

Nails I totally disagree with you. The difference between the two is large. First major teams are allowed 6 homeruns, thats 3 more than AAA. second a lot of those teams have issue keeping it in the park , while AAA teams have troubles hitting 3. Second major teams are allowed 3 major plus player drop downs, AAA are not allowed any. Third look at the average scores at the major levels its above 20 to 23 runs per game, AAA teams struggle to score that many. Major teams when playing in same age brackets as AAA give up runs or extra player and for the most part (good teams) normally beat team easily.

P.S. you may say you may have a home run hitter in your team that can hit it out a will, then I say that guy should be playing in the major division.

Just my 2 cents.

Discussion: Batter pops up, doesn't run; defense lets ball drop to get a double play. Legal?

The Batter is out. Period

Stever, my post with Tim was not meant to change the ruling and Dave "no what if's" just an observation. If the defense is smart and the runner is dumb why not take advantage of that. In baseball there is no such rule, in the young guy softball there is no such rule, so what senior softball is saying this rule only exist because we are Old.LMAO!

Tim, if you remember this actually occurred in Naples several years ago you where the TD and I was on the end of this discussion.
I still say the batter has to at least make an effort to move down the line, if he does not, he gives himself up to a DP.

Not the defense fault if you can't or won't run.

That's the same as getting thrown out on a hit to right field and not having enough speed to get there. Is it right for the out fielder to throw you out (in the spirit of gamesmanship) probably not, but will we do it. In a second (absolutely)

My views as a competitor, get all the outs you can.

Take Care see you soon, Manny

I once asked that a rule be instated that the batter/runner must make an attempt to run down the line. was over ruled.

In our game the batter was half way to the 3rd base dugout, I stated that to the ump and TD and was still over ruled.

In the regular softball a double play would have been called.

some years ago same thing happened in a game that I was playing, I told our second baseman to let the ball drop, he step back and turned 2. Was informed by tournament director after appealing to him that senior softball rules that is not a double play, runner returns to first and batter is out, the reason is it was a deliberate on the part of the defense.

PC, looks like you have it all figured out.

Only one suggestion if you are looking to play tournaments and travel ball SSUSA, the season actually starts with the winter nationals in November.

Good luck to you and your team, maybe we will run into each other on the ball field.

By the way you will need players to register with SSUSA.

Hey PC, just a bit of advise,in order to get attention.

1) what division are you looking to play in. Very important due to certain restrictions based on rules.(tournament)
2) Does the team have a sponsor?
3) How many guys do you have so far?
4) what positions are your immediate needs?

Good luck in your search. If you need help let me know. I live in Miami-Dade and have some experience in running a team.

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.

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.
