Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Flip-Flop Rule

I'm trying to understand this, the losing team will benefit in the runs allowed category because the winning team won't be scoring.
By the way Dave, the Record (W-L) is the "last resort" before Head to head result in full round robin, Aggregate runs allowed in all games, Net run differential in all games and Coin toss! ;)

Topic: Bats
Discussion: Approved bats

I thought this was discussed three years ago and that any 1.20 senior bat was grandfathered and approved. Apparently this has changed. So if you swing a Mizuno Techfire or Crush it is no longer approves. How about the old school Bombats Howards, guess they are no longer allowed.

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Staying behind the pitching screen

In our league at Al Bishop in Marietta, Ga, the leg of the screen (we use PitchSafe nets must touch the rubber. A ball that strikes the screen is treated as a foul ball. If on last strike, the batter is out. We don't have a rule that covers a pitcher moving from behind the screen so it is allowed. I pitch sometimes and most pitchers know which batters you need to remain behind the screen. At least I do!!
Boro, all of these rules are local rules.

Discussion: Dudley Lightning

I've been told by several that they are the same bat. A teammate says no but I still believe they are. I have one 2017 and have had several 2015/6's.

Discussion: RECLASSIFYING A TEAM/AND OR PLAYERS

You may want to check out [Team Rating Index (R/I) Player/Team Experience ratings chart PDF digital file] or even call the office.
The players in question have a rating of 8 as being 55 M+. 60 M would be a 6.
It states the player:
2. May play ONE R/I less than HIGHEST R/I as one of three
"out-of-rating" players allowed on that team's roster
3. May NOT play TWO R/I less without PRIOR approval by SSUSA
Home Office under GRANTED exception request.

You are correct, the bulls eye is between my thumb and index finger.

Discussion: slow pitch slider

I don't think you are wasting your time but, I really don't want my opposing pitchers to learn this pitch.
I've thrown this for the past 10 years, mostly in league but I have pitched in a handful of tournament games. It has really worked for me.
The way I threw it was to throw it as a two seam pitch. In the past year or so I've lost the ability to consistently throw it.
I've modified a ball like you pics show and it doesn't work for me. I've adjusted my fingers somewhat and think that I have hit on the best hand position for me.
I'm thinking that if the catcher should be able to see the bulls eye then I should be able to see a bulls eye on the opposite side of the ball. Right?
