Discussion: first baseman charging the plate during delivery of the pitch

HAT MAN, no I don't know it all never have claimed to. I gave a correct answer to a question. You!! followed up "no such rule" so apparently you thought you knew it all! So if you didn't know for sure there wasn't a rule then why did you have to chime in? My response was to you chiming in without facts to support your response. No pipe no problem on my end apparently the problem's on your end!

SSUSA Staff yes I was referring to Randall's situation. Don't know why people come on here (HAT MAN) and leave comments not related to the post and then give false information. So no such rule HAT MAN I think SSUSA just posted it!

I should also add this would all be if in umpire's judgement fielder's actions where to attempt to distract batter. Which in this case it appears to be the case.

Yes it should be called as defensive interference batter should get 1st base or result of play if pitch was swung at. Fielder should also be warned and possible ejection if done again.

Discussion: Defense

My take on this yes defense will save you a run or two here and there. And will get you out of an inning or two here and there. But face it slowpitch softball is an offensive game. Simple way to explain you can play stellar defensive game make all the routines with no errors and still lose because your team didn't hit. Yet you can play a game make multiple errors and still win because you hit the crap out of the ball. It's pretty simple you have to "score" more runs than the other team regardless sorry guys offense rules in slowpitch softball!!

IMO it is the cover just like what has made the Baden ball a piece of s--t. The old Baden had a composite cover the new one's have a synthetic cover. I would assume tanners ball like the rock has a composite or leather cover.

Discussion: Trump Softball

NYGNYY At least you got a reply I asked in a post awhile back when the current contract with Trump balls was up got crickets for a reply. And JamesLG Trump currently has the capabilities to produce a decent ball they already make 44/375 ball for Alan Tanner at Team 1 sports that is a great ball.

Discussion: what's hotter than a 34/28 demarini juice?

I doubt the person asking the question has access to any of the OG combats! Are you selling any? I don't think so basing my reply on the current bats that are readily available. Basically all the combats produced over the past few years are turds!! get a Miken, Dudley, Adidas or the new Worth IMO!!

Discussion: out or not?

Incorrect call on double play if third strike on batter yes batter is out. If ball is in foul territory unless 3rd base runner intentionally hit ball with hand all you have is foul ball batter out. It is always where the ball is in relation to fair/foul line.

Discussion: effect of interference call by umpire

Absolutely not interference never has been and never should be! My only question is ball would have still been live so play would not officially been over just because it hit runner.

stick8, you're scenario should not warrant an interference call. If you slide out of baseline and contact runner or do anything in baseline such as wave arms jump up in front of fielder etc. Those are grounds for interference. Simply being in baseline after being forced out or sliding into bag and runner in normal fashion is not interference!

Also forgot to add there doesn't have to be a throw if runner does something intentional to impede throw. It is umpires judgement had there not been interference would fielder have been able to attempt to get out then interference would be called throw or not.

umpire 14, you are not giving a reason for interference. When a runner is forced out at say 2nd unless runner does something intentional to impede throw to 1st there is no interference. If fielder just throws ball and hits runner or doesn't throw because runner is in baseline after being forced out there is no interference. Runner has right to base and can't just disappear after being forced out. It is written that way in every rule book I have seen from mlb down. It is fielders responsibility to throw around runner in these situations!

Discussion: Thrown Ball "Out Of Play"

Some organizations differ on this.Most say if you already acquired a bag it is the next bag plus one. That being said runner must have tagged or go back and tag properly if returning for a caught fly ball, or runner would be subject to being out on appeal if this wasn't done.

Duke, yes I was just trying to simplify the answer so most would understand. 1 the base runner is going to plus 1 more.

It is always 2 bases. The confusing comes from where the runner(s) position are at time of release from fielder.
Runner gets base going to plus 1. Based on runners location at time of release from fielder.

Dave,

I was basing my answer on BH44 scenario in that situation "run counts every time".

stever it is an appeal play yes, but most importantly it is a timing play. Did runner cross plate before defense appealed runner not tagging up or tagging bag that runner left early from. Out or not is based on timing.
