Discussion: Reno 65 Major results

Everyone is asking for snapshots of the brackets. I don't see anywhere to post the photo I took of the brackets. Silver Streaks are up big vs. Cen-Tex, so it looks like Silver Streaks and Animals in the finals.

Discussion: new 85 team forming looking for players

When people ask me if I have a bucket list, I tell them only one. I want to play on an 85-year old team in 16 years.

OZ is right. The catcher can never tag a runner at the plate.

Discussion: Rule question

I looked in my rulebook and can't find anything that covers this. It happened in an ASA league game (I repeat, LEAGUE).
Runners on 2nd and 3rd with 2 outs. Batter takes ball four and the ball bounces back to the backstop. The runner on 2nd forgot there was a runner on 3rd because he had a white shirt on instead of our blue. He takes off for 3rd, so the runner on 3rd takes off for the plate. The catcher picks up the ball and steps on the plate. The umpire called him out to end the inning. Is that the correct call? I thought the ball was dead in softball on a walk (unlike baseball).

Discussion: carrying bat to first base

I found this comment on another thread.

"You can carry it all the way around the bases, as long as you do not interfere with
a play. Just remember it's not a hockey stick......"

Discussion: For 70 and over. 11 players on the field. Like or Dislike

Agree with Jawood. Makes the batter learn to hit to other fields, and more importantly, it lowers the scores, which can get pretty ridiculous.

Cen-Tex double-dipped Arizona Ancients in the 65-Major division of the Winter Worlds.

Mr. Nick--
No way. You can't move two down in ratings and two down in age (higher age is moving down).

Discussion: Are walks hits in Senior Softball?

You can do anything you want, but keep in mind that in baseball when you reach on an error, you're 0 for 1 and also 0 for 1 in on base percentage. The same is true for fielder's choices. I'm astounded at all the players that think these are hits!

Discussion: Are walks hits in Senior Softball?

You should keep both. I always provide stats to our players, and we keep BA, OBP, and slugging percentage. Walks are important, but they never score a runner from second!

Discussion: team seeking players for 2015 including Phoenix this month

This team has some talent, and there's got to be some 70-year-olds out there looking for a team. I'm not 70 yet, but I know Mike and I've seen his team play.

Discussion: Need team for Phoenix--70AAA or Major

I beg to differ. If you keep stats, AND you know the difference between a hit and an error, you'll see that a lot of AAA players can't even hit .600

Between the two of them, they have eight championship rings, two MVPs, and around eight all-tournament patches.

Discussion: Need team for Phoenix--70AAA or Major

Two computer-challenged players need to find a new team after their squad broke up (Silver Sox 65AAA). I have played with both of them for years in tournaments and leagues. The first is a lefty-lefty 1B who hit .678 in 2012 tourneys and .571 in 2013. Don't have this year's stats because I went to a different team. He prides himself on being the master of the unassisted double play at first.

The second is a righty 2B-3B-P who hit .615 in 2012 and .658 in 2013. By the way, errors are NOT hits. They would like to join the same team because they always carpool together.

Discussion: Passing of Tom Sneddon

I'm sorry to have to announce the passing of Tom Sneddon of cancer. He was the manager of the Silver Sox 65AAA team in Southern California, and before that played on the 60AAA version of the team. Before that, he was the District Attorney that attempted to prosecute Michael Jackson. He will be missed.

Discussion: Team move-ups

I want to express my opinion that every team should have two different margin averages. One is for non-open innings and one for open innings. There is no way you can mesh the two together and not expect very skewed stats.
