Discussion: New Team Forming

You may want to start by opening the message board link and put all your info about age, competitive goals, possible sponsorship, start up costs for players, how many tournaments, etc. in the teams looking for players link. Maybe try to reach out to softball associations in the six states that border WY. Contact the Scrap Iron Club (CO) and see if they allow out of state teams to be part of their club. Get together with the players you play locally with and get input from them if you haven't already done so.

Best of luck as you move forward.

Congratulations to the 75AAA winners St. George Raptors. They might be the first team of St. G players to evar win the Worlds. May they continue to do well in majors.

Discussion: C19 at Worlds.

What bugs me is when an ump/director comes over and asks a few fans to move down to the grass area (more 95 degree sun) which began yesterday with positive C19 result(s) at the Canyons. "So only players are allowed to be on the hard top/bleachers around the fields?" "Yes." "Then what about all those ladies up against the building with the guys all wearing the same uniform shirt?" "A teams score keeper is allowed." "Do you really believe those 6-8 ladies are all score keepers for that team?" He walked away and I stayed in the bleachers with my gaiter on. It's kind of funny that many umps/directors are using the free face shields, but those are probably the worst protection from airborne droplets and they come in contact with others hundreds of times each day at a tournament.

Any updates on player/fan restrictions since the announcement of a positive test was made before the 8 am games started?

Thanks DD. When refreshing the discussion page each time looking at it, I thought the whole site was done.

Discussion: Hey you! Don't buy new cleats.

It took some time, but with the help of the NSA, (well, they are located in Utah) the FBI, and Dave D., I've located the owner. Thank you to them and anyone who may have checked with their teammates. This post can be closed/deleted if the bosses want too.

Live right next to Unity Park in Ivins, UT, and found a pair of cleats. Size 10, tri colored Nikes, pair of black sox (phew!), and two black knee sleeves. Will drop them off at the Canyons complex later this morning after BP at Unity. Hope you have back ups.

Discussion: Since when???

With the Western's and next weeks World's in my back yard, I'm looking forward to watching the younger seniors play with three outfielders, with many of the OF throws reaching the IF, and defensive calls by the OF. Opponent knowledge of what they've done in previous games, even if it was months ago, is impressive. Oh yeah, haven't seen a CR used yet.

Discussion: World Masters - St George

A lot of pieces to the use of Little Valley puzzle Spock. To keep peace with the neighbors, the 55 AAA&AA are at LV with the Stote. This might help keep fewer home runs from clearing the extended nets behind a couple of fields. USA appreciates St. G taking on the Westerns and Worlds and might need the cities assistance for other tournaments in the future. It's a win-win for both parties it seems.

Discussion: Wild Throw

From what I can recall from umpiring decades ago, out of play throws from an infielder reverts back to where base runners/batter are at the time of the last pitch. From the OF, where was the base runner's/batter at the time the ball is released by the OF. A fast batter could have already touched first base before the release. If there is a double play attempt by the infielders, it is based on the position of base runners/batter at the time of the second throw.

Discussion: field assignments

The city has added nets and those who schedule men's games have done their best to assign lower levels at Little Valley. But, the owners, supposedly suing the city, were reminded that the fields were there first.

Discussion: WESTERNS

Wasn't aware of any players having issues, but one director had to take a break. Don't know if it was heat related.

The pre tournament temperature guess award goes to Jon44. His weather site used nailed it. September temperature history in St. G is showing low to mid 90's.

You forgot to mention Tim that you're an equal opportunity line drive hitter to all fields.

Discussion: Saint George Temp Rising

That school/parking lot beyond LV 4 is allowing players/fans to park in the spots behind the field, but not close to the school entrance. Schools opened today in the St. G area. Distance from fence to hardtop (sloped downward with boulders/rocks/trees/shrubs) is about 50-60 feet(?). When I've been out there during some BP sessions over the years, big hitters like Jon44 reach the hardtop so those balls really bounce and roll quite a way. Hopefully the word will get out to try and stay away from that area. I could use some OF practice, so if able to watch, I'll bring my glove.

Bloomington #1 has parking spots close to LF and LC and RC has two (I belive) active pickleball courts beyond RC with some trees behind the fence.

The 40's at The Canyons could be interesting. Big hitters on 4 can hit into 6 which means bombers on 6 can reach 4. Behind RF on 6 are tall trees then a small parking lot. Over the years there's been guys reach Snow Canyon Pkwy from 4&5. The school roof behind #2 can be reached.

The Canyons have great fields, but can be very challenging for scheduling when the younger teams play there.
