Thanks Ray Ray. I'll define super major ball for those of you that don't know. It's a major plus team that can hit hrs but they know their odds are better hitting singles. Then, after the outfield moves in they burn the outfielders or hit it out.
Ray Ray's team probably has won more national championships that any other team. Maybe Ray Ray will clear that up.
Also, a large majority on the team are in the sshof.
Did I say Clattah is also on this team?!

Discussion: New Adidas MeLee 2

Durability issues have been posted on the Ambush. I, for one, commented on it. I will repeat it, I only got 100 swings on mine, never able to swing it in a game.
I wouldn't expect Alan to post about the Ambush's lack of durability. I would be disappointed if posted that the bat was durable.

Discussion: face masks

I don't pitch much in tournaments but when I do I don't mind wearing a mask.
I even wear catcher's shin guards at first base. I've been hit twice in the shin and tell myself that I won't happen again. I just laugh off the remarks about me catching or pitching.

Discussion: The new sun rule 6.16

I agree with titanhd and NYGNYY, the tournament staff and director needs to be proactive here, not scheduling on fields where the sun blinds pitchers. No rule is needed.
I will give props to ISSA, RB or Greg, for not scheduling on the a field in Manassas where the sun was in the pitchers' eyes (or was it the batters?).

Discussion: Intentional walk rule

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 :(
