Discussion: Grounds Crew

I know that SSUSA has no control over grounds crew.But when you see a bunch of young guys pulling water towards the infield rather than away from the playing surface, should you say something or just keep quite.

I myself could not stay quite (believe or not) so I said, should you not be pushing the water towards the grass area rather than the infield!The young adult claimed they did not want the clay to go towards the grass (WOW) so I mentioned it to the older adult who looked at me like I was insulting his intelligence and said we do this for a living.

I turned around and said that's no excuse for doing it wrong.

after all this was done the losers bracket of our division was eliminated and the undefeated team was name the winner of the tournament. I was not happy with this outcome, we where on a roll, but second place is better than last.

Just saying!

Discussion: Calling Time out

Nancy and B.J.

Thank You for the input.I also umpire. As you stated first thing to do as an umpire when calling time is to make sure play is done, but my question is once you call time irrelevant where any players or ball are, umpire cannot retract that call.

i understand she made a mistake, but once made as umpire you have to earn up to it and not allow further action by offence or defense.

My question is there anything in the rule book that address this?

Thanks again for all the input.

Staff is there a specific rule for this or is it umpire discretion?

Discussion: Calling Time out

Ok, granted might have been early, but she still called out "TIME"

only 2 things can happen

1) time is called dead ball no advancement

2) play stands keep playing (have a problem with this, for how long can the play continue)?

Discussion: Calling Time out

Here it goes.

A ball is throw to home plate, catcher miss plays it, catcher picks up ball, infielder yells timeout.

Umpire yells time at the same time catcher throws ball to 3rd base, which is missed by 3rd baseman and runner scores.

umpire says because time was called will catchers arm was in motion, "no timeout" runner scores.

offence is happy, defense is not.

what should happen?

Discussion: What's the correct call?

Dave, how does a catcher standing behind the plate( been there many a time) catch the ball in fair territory?

No Pugh Rodriguez's playing in our divisions that I am aware of.

Once touched by a defensive player in foul territory before first or third base the ball is foul. unless it is in the air.

Stated ball touched the mat (Floor) bounced up, Catcher touches it, behind the mat, before the first or third base bag, ball is foul!!!

Discussion: What's the correct call?

The way it is stated, the ball bounced back towards the catch, so he touched it behind the foul line."FOUL BALL"

Discussion: just wondering the rule

Dugout, just a bit of advise. Most teams coaches keep a ball with them in the coaches box, if something doesn't sound right or ball gets dirty or wet or HR, he usually exchanges good ball or new ball with the pitcher.

Standing joke is "we just got it out of the cooler"
So, I guess like Dave said lesson learn.

Dave I also like the one that hits the front of the plate, but the one that hits the far corner is my favorite.

stay well.

Discussion: Change in the batters box rule

Dave, I never said or intended to say the plate has moved. I have only been playing senior ball for 13 years. before I played with the young guys, they did not have a mat, it was up to the umpires to determine where the ball landed and if it was a strike.

My statement is, that if a ball hits the plate, it was a ball back then, today in senior ball and a lot of other sanctions the mat and the plate are a strike.

So technically, the so call strike area has moved up, therefore a batter has to move up to cover that area. So by taking a large strive forward the batter can unintentionally step over the box.

I just think who ever came up with the mat system (which I like "stops a lot of arguments") never took into account the added distance and adjusted the box.

Discussion: Change in the batters box rule

Dave, I understand your point when it come to MLB. But i disagree with you in softball, now that we use the mat. When softball started there was no such thing as the mat (correct) OK. now that the mat is used, correct me if I am wrong (I have been wrong before " ask my wife")the plate is a strike. Prior to the use of the mat the plate was a ball (again correct me if I am wrong) so this means the strike zone moved, again correct me if I am wrong, therefore the box should have moved with the start of using the mat.

Make sense?

Thank You, hope yo and your are well.

Discussion: Change in the batters box rule

This rule should be amended because of the use of the mat and plate which extends the strike zone. When the rule of stepping out of the box where written, the plate was not a strike. Now that the plate is a strike we have to move up to cover that area or reach forward to hit the ball, the area that is the plate in the distance the box should be moved up or amend the rule.

The stepping out comes into play especially in turf fields where the lines are painted (with old dimensions based on old softball rules) and do not take into consideration that the plate is now a strike.(new rules)

SSUSA should address this, and come to the necessary action to eliminate this bad call being made at tournaments that use turf fields.

Discussion: coming to a complete stop

Question for staff and all.

As per rule 6.4 (C) pitcher must come to a complete stop before delivering the ball.
Understood, the call should be no pitch and if batter swings the count remains the same. Correct?

Ok, how many times can a pitcher do this, and when and if are there any consequences for his actions?

thank you.
