Discussion: Notice on changes to Spring Worlds Session #2 due to rain forecast

On the SSUSA's SPRING WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS 2023 "DRAFT" Game Schedules & Brackets section, the author of the latest post mentioned "forecast-panic has claimed another victim". With the way this Fall and Winter storms have been, and mostly accurate, I don't think players are in a panic.

Discussion: Llerandigloves.com Custom Softball Gloves

Three BP sessions/week before games B4, but as an OF, only a few come my way, even when moving to where they normally hit. Too many other players looking to catch a few.

Don't know about the BP sessions you attend Benji, but there's very little glove usage in our local leagues. Took me around an hour of rubber mallet work to get my Llerandi loose. Felt comfortable using from the first rec game and every tournament game since.

Discussion: 1 Piece Bats

Have a BP session with other Ohio ballers and try their bats. Swing some bats at the bigger tournaments where there probably is a bat rep selling bats.

Yes Jim. With a 75M rating, Sacramento told me I could play with DH. Speak with Bobby Ellison at the USA office or send him an email. bobby@seniorsoftball.com

Discussion: Anyone need a player for Bullhead?

A team I was going to play with couldn't get enough players, so if a 70/75 team comes up short before BH, let me know. Danke.

Discussion: Interference or Not

Thought about it yesterday, but here's the play stick8 mentioned. As you watch the video, keep an eye on Barnett's right hand. To me, he's made a fist and raising his hand. No one on the broadcast team mentioned that.

Discussion: legal catch

Well, there's a good chance the plate umpire would have a hard time seeing where the ball is and possibly the base umpire based on where they're positioned. If errors were counted at one time, one can only imagine how long discussions were between umpire(s) and player(s).

Discussion: legal catch

If a player holds a ball against there body Donna, they are probably using a standard grip. So by moving the ball an inch or two from their body, would the batter/base runner now be out?

Amazon might be a starting place. I bought a yard of naugahyde material at a local quilting store. Marked the dimensions on it and cut it. It rolls up real narrow and fits easily in one of the bat slots.

Discussion: scoring line in senior softball

Suggestion for all rec players/umpires. You might want to make copies of the new CL and first base bag rules to prevent the inevitable "discussions" about the safe/out call.

Discussion: Live Scores

Not sure what the maximum number of teams per age group and ranking the HWSG softball software can handle.

Last years 60 men's were broken down this way after three seeding games.

Major/AAA 6 AA Blue 6 AA Yellow 6 A Blue 6 A Yellow 6

A few age groups for men only had five in the top group, then six for the others. The 74+ men only had three groups for finals.

As mentioned, I took photos late Wed. afternoon. Could not copy and paste them on this site. I'd be glad to email someone the photos and hopefully Thurs. games will be posted.

Sorry, but we didn't make it to Thursday.

Since I couldn't find a ten year old child to help me post them, could someone send an email to DFJK73@yahoo.com and I'll forward them for posting.

Thank you.

Make that three years since the rules committee made changes to the use of younger players for the 75 and 80 ages.
