I've lead our league in walks for many seasons. It was never a big deal with me, just looked at it as another run for our team.

Wow, the umpire needs to take control of the game! If he doesn't, then the league director should.

Discussion: Intentional walk rule

I am curious, why do you ask this? Have you witnessed this in local or tournament play?
With all the new rules to speed up play (flip flop, starting with 1-1 count, hr limit, hit 'n sit, etc) what would be the reasoning to prolong the game?

Discussion: Batting Average or On Base Percentage

Wayne, you batted 10th and the next two were "weak hitters"? Were they number 11 and 12 ore 1 and 2? I would guess 11 and 12.
Agreed that "No hit by pitches in slow pitch". I'm thinking that is your adjustment to baseball obp. My adjustment would be no sacrifice flies also and if you hit into a double play you would get two plate appearances. You can imagine some teammates thoughts on that! :)
Currently we give sacrifice flies if it scores the 5th run. I disagree with that... score that run or runners with a hit.

Discussion: Batting Average or On Base Percentage

Oz, I would think that the 650 and 850 batters would need to change places in the lineup. Is it the fault of the 850 hitter that very few teammates were in scoring position when he came to bat?
For that reason I would never consider rbi's in selecting the all tournament team.
As for defense, if two player have similar obp or ba I would give it to the one that played stellar defense.

Another great video! I watched it all the way through last week. A teammate had to tell me at our super bowl party that I was featured in it!! I guess as we age we don't recognize our selves :(

They were the Combat version. The balanced version is red and the el version was white with a green strip down one side.

Discussion: New Combat senior bat....?

I talked with a Combat rep that everyone knows and he said the Rocket Launcher is Mike Kelly's graphics on the new Combat senior bat. Kelley's has the guarantee. I don't recall what Combat calls the bat. The balanced version is red with the tacky surface like the Dudleys. The end loaded version is white with a green stripe, no tacky surface. Guys with Covellos in Tampa were killing it with those bats. Granted the guys were huge.
Guys on our team bought several.
Maybe Combat has another winner!

Discussion: Finding a bat's swing weight

Thanks Bill, for the addendum. I am skeptical that you can use my figures and come up with a meaningful result unless you and I have compared each other's setup. I've found that even 1/4" can distort the outcome. I've made a jig to each bat that I weigh will be positioned identically.
Thanks again for your time taken in presenting this.
