Maybe it's time to have those lines put down at the larger tournaments. One of the problems I've seen for years, especially with one umpire, is they are spending too much time ball watching instead of watching what's happening on the base paths. Even with two umps, you have many base umpires watching the ball. Even with a deep fly ball, there's time to take a quick look at a base runner touching the bag, or to see if the batter touched first or was interfered with going around first. Usually the only time a base umpire has to watch the ball is to help out on a sinking line drive. If the plate umpire sees the base umps back, with runners on the bases, they must check for tags.

With close to 300 days of sunshine, like most of the SW and So. Cali, can you look directly at the sun with no issues for tracking a ball using polarized glasses? #5 welding glasses allow me to do that for those balls you do not have time to go after using a different angle.

With casinos shutting down, maybe they could get permission to do what Australia has done. Some casinos have turned off every other slot machine. Required distance is now met.

W37
Not sure what type of welding they are used for. Green lens that allow you to look into the sun. It does take a little time to get used to the different color hue, but everything is still clear. The pair I bought off of Amazon that fit over regular glasses (around $25), have started to lose their protection properties.

Experiment with inexpensive wrap around #5 welding glasses. Yes, they do present a different hue, but they take care of most of the sun. Can't use them when driving since red shows up black.

"The batter is credited with an RBI (run batted in) for every runner that reaches home safely when any of the following occurs: The batter hits safely. ... The batter reaches first on a fielder's choice. The batter reaches first on a base on balls while the bases are full."

If this was to happen, would .21 bats, bought before a set date, be illegal? You ohly mentioned about buying one. Soo, Red Sox #5. Are you Nixon, Scott, Perez, Owen, Garciaparra, or Gomes?

Purchased a pair of Salomon trail shoes a few years back. Light, comfortable, and stayed dry in rain for about 5 minutes before the game was called. Save them just for tournaments.

Discussion: CR from the back stop.

Our 70/80 rec league (have a teammate who is 90) allows some runners to have a CR from the back stop. The post the BOD wants used is 80' from first base. Someone mentioned you should line up with the third base foul line. Any suggestions what other leagues are using if this practice is allowed?

Keep it like it is. Most go one inning in a short time and they can be exciting.

Merry CHRISTmas to all.
