Discussion: Dalton balls?

Dave, Not trying to beat SSUSA up on this post was just curious as to what we would be hitting. Didn't see the post on the other tourney.

coop - I have a long drive as well, but I would rather to not have to take an extra day off from work for one more game. Just my opinion!

Discussion: Am i wrong to think this way

stick8 - No pass/fail number for senior bats as of yet. Nothing done if pitcher or anyone is hit as of yet. You have to pay like a $250.00 protest fee to protest a bat and what are they going to do take a look at it? No explanation by any of the senior organizations on the process to have a bat tested that is protested. As I said no current deterrents in place at all. Compression testing would be a start!

What's the purpose of the 5 game guarantee? Why not just do 4 game as most others do?

mck71 - So a confiscated back was looked at by either the tourney director or UIC and determined not to be altered and gave back. If that was the case as I said this is part of the problem you can't tell if a bat has been altered by just looking at it. And bat testing although not perfect will help in some fashion and yes the pass/fail would have to be lower than 240.

Agree with stick on this one. The problem is none of the senior organizations make it simple to expose the cheaters. The protest fees are ridiculous so there isn't much of a deterrent. I hope all senior organizations will go to bat testing soon. It's not that expensive for bat testers. Mt .02 cents worth!

Montanapnc - Since no else replied about rolling yes it is illegal. I personally wouldn't do it.

stick, No once runner is tagged past commit line that runner is automatically safe and doesn't have to cross scoring line.

Steve, You could have just asked me!! Yes runner is safe, once he crosses line if fielder tags him he is automatically safe.

Discussion: What's the call?

Calls like this are called incorrectly a lot. It is a foul ball always where the ball is located at touch never where the player is.

Discussion: Dont blame SSUSA for the ball problem.

The tattoo ball SPA and ISSA use are great balls. Not sure if these are the ones SSUSA will be using or not. The dud SPA ball was when they switched to a different Baden ball.

Discussion: 3rd Base Commitment line

If catcher moves off of mat to catch ball and brushes runner going home with body not glove with ball in it there should be a no call if runner tags safety mat or crosses scoring line before catcher tags plate runner is safe. If catcher brushed runner with glove with ball in it runner should be called safe. Other runner would stay at base attained before tag.

Discussion: Should I buy a new 'old' bat?

Currently there is no pass/fail measurement for senior bats. And as stated this rule only applies to USSSA. There probably won't be any compression standard set for senior bats anytime soon. And if there is you can assume all current senior bats will be grandfathered in for at least a couple of years.

Discussion: Outfielder runs thru centerfield fence gap and catches home run ball; home run or out?

Play should be ruled a Hr. If you would have made contact with ball before entering the gap area then it would be an out.

Discussion: Batter pops up, doesn't run; defense lets ball drop to get a double play. Legal?

grayhitter59 - Is there a rule listing for this in senior softball? It is the batters responsibility to run out the play. If he doesn't there is no reason to punish defense. This is a legal play as long as fielder doesn't touch ball in the process and just lets it land.
