Discussion: Reno Tournament

Omar: I passed very close to a few dozen people today when the Mrs. and I went to the supermarket for about an hour. Maybe those of us who live in the St. G area, like other warm and sunny areas, are fortunate. Have hit 4/5 times a week and gone to the gym often since day one of UT restrictions. Hopefully these training sessions will help me spend less time on the base paths. LOL

Like most things in life Z65, at least in the USA for now and as mentioned in the larger Reno thread, if you don't feel comfortable about playing tournament ball right now, don't.

Discussion: Reno Tournament

A standard senior SB field is about 1.3 acres. Ten or eleven defensive players, three base runners, one or two umpires, a batter and on-deck batter, and two base coaches are more spread out than four pickle ball courts with double matches going on. A senior SB game has better SD than any box store/supermarket with people constantly passing others in the aisles.

Once the grouping of no more than 20 is raised in states, rec leagues and tournaments might be open for business.

With the date change and May 19th is the new final day to register, like most tournaments, field assignments are maybe two weeks out. (How did I do Sacramento?)

Discussion: Dugouts

Who will be charge of disinfecting the softballs? Catcher, umpire, pitcher? Players can get infected with a ball their teammates touch. How often during a game will everyone involved with a game have to have their temperature taken?

One could only hope that the decision makers would remember all the people they pass in the varies stores they have been in even if the stores limit the number of people who can be in the store at any given time. Next thing you know, they'll be telling us to hold our breaths as we pass others, even when running the bases, and will have to play the game with masks on.

I've always felt hitting the net should just be a dead ball.

Discussion: Running lane violation

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.

Discussion: Sunglasses Recommendation

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.

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.

Discussion: Fielders choice or sacrifice

"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."
