Discussion: DEFENSIVE STRATEGY FOR FIFTH INFIELDER

As anything else it would depend on the player. I prefer that he play as a rover if he can cover ground and has a strong arm. For an average player I still prefer that he play on the grass and cover the middle of the field. IMO and my experience, with me pitching, he is being wasted playing behind the 2nd base bag. True you may miss some double plays but playing deeper you are still going to get the force at 2nd and you are going to get those loopers that fall in. If he has a strong arm he still has a good chance to get the batter at first, especially with 70' bases.

Discussion: Little League World Series Double Elim that Isn't ???

I think someone should check those bats of the SC team. A 12 yr old hitting a 381' home run or did I hear wrong. He must of been using a Senior bat.

Discussion: 2015 Ocean State Softball Classic list of participating teams

That seems par for the course for any Northeast Tournament's. We are the forgotten area.

Discussion: international tie breaker-runner

This is a good example of Association's having different rules. I would guess the Ump was basically an ASA ump where you can replace the runner at 2nd.

Discussion: Why the problem of

I have been complaining for years about the posting of the Northeast/Mid-Atlantic tournaments.

The Atlantic Coast Championship play in May still don't have results posted. I wonder how long it will take to post the Syracuse tournament?

Discussion: Know your Rules

Many players, umps etc get the SSUSA rules and ASA rules confused. They are basically the same with some small differences and this being one of them. In ASA he would be out.

Discussion: Lets here it for the old guys ! ! !

I assume you used Senior Rules. Using a mat throws those young pups off as they are not use to swinging at pitches that hit the plate.

Discussion: Remember When...........

Sparky.1: Yes. 5 of them plus one Wilson Professional Softball A9140 which feels hard as a rock.

I would love to try the Wilson but then it wouldn't be NIB anymore.

Discussion: Remember When...........

Sparky.1: Funny you should mention the Hardwood Softball. A friend of mine gave me about 300 softballs he has collected over the years to sell for him and there were 5 NIW Hardwood softballs. You remember any info on them? Good/Bad etc. Like to sell them but no nothing about them.

Discussion: Remember When...........

Another factor is we are raising a bunch of spoiled wimps who would rather quit playing than put the extra work in as you get older and to overlook the aches and pains that start developing.

Some of the softball sites I go on you constantly see players saying I am in my 40's and it is time to stop playing because of the aches and pains.

Discussion: Hitting from tee vs. hitting pitched ball

I get about the same difference hitting with my WD vs live pitching. Even though the ball is moving a little with my WD you still don't get the bat flex you would get from live pitching I believe the bat flexes more when hitting a pitched ball than it does hitting a stationery ball.

taits: I seen that but there is nothing there about a runner abandoning his base.

Discussion: courtesy runner

Couldn't find in my SSUSA rule book from 2010 so went to the ASA rule book and Rule 8 sec U "when a runner abandons a base and goes to the dugout he is ruled out"

Discussion: courtesy runner

This should be interesting. I would say he is out mainly because he abandon the base when he went into the dugout. Also I believe that once he calls for a courtesy runner he can't replace himself.

When I catch I also use the actual plate as my anchor which doesn't move.

Discussion: Best ball in Hot Weather

IMO The Evil ball is one of the best. We have used them for years and never noticed any drop off in hot weather and they stand up for a long time.
