Our team is planning on going to play in Vegas this year for the 1st time. Need info/help on the hotel rooms. We are going to book hotel/airline package where is the best place to stay decent/affordable with access to all parks. Online booking shows hotels on strip, east of strip, west of strip, downtown, north vegas, east vegas, henderson, boulder etc. Any info/help would be appreciated!

Thanks!!

coop3636 it is called that way incorrectly most of the time. It is a judgement call for the umpire what base runner would have made if not for obstruction. The reason being the 1st baseman could just truck the runner every time and runner 99% of the time is going to just stop and go back to 1st. The call is made to penalize defense for obstruction and for runner to get base he is entitled to if not for obstruction!

Base runner should only be awarded base he would have gotten without obstruction. If base runner continues to 3rd ruling should be an out.

If player makes an attempt or not doesn't matter. If the umpire felt runner would have made 2nd without obstruction that is what should be awarded. Most players when obstructed will almost always immediately go back to bag they were coming from.

Discussion: What is the call? Fair or Foul

It is really very simple it is always were the ball is in relation to fair foul line. Were the player's position is has no bearing on call ever!

I call dead ball and put runners where I think they would have been if not for errant throw. Most will say dead ball and award an out. I don't believe in penalizing an out if there is no chance of getting one.

Discussion: Penalty for offensive intereference

stick8 in my opinion your call was incorrect. You are rewarding defense with a triple play when most likely the outcome would not have ended that way without the interference. It should be the umpires judgement on what would have happened if not for the interference most likely double play. Batter out on ld runner closet to home out for interference by 1b runner. 2 outs runner on 1st is the correct call in my opinion. i know you are going to say the runner on 1st would have been out if not for the interference you are correct but the penalty for the offense is the runner closest to home is out. Same scenario yet it is a ground ball hit ti ss runner going to 2nd interferes with throw to 1st. You would not call both runner going to 1st and runner on 3rd out for a triple play you would call runner on 2nd out runner on 3rd out for interference batter on 1st 2 outs.

Hopefully you didn't trade anything good for those! Sorry to say most USSSA bats are better than any of those. Some of the worst senior bats out there.

Discussion: Miken Ultra II vs Dudley Lightning

Jimmy, just curious was it last years Big cat or this years? I know this years version is much more durable than last years. To answer your question I hadn't gotten over 600 swings on any senior bat I have used and I have tried most until my Dudley I got last year. Had over 1500 swings on mine before it cracked. I do have almost 600 on my balanced Ultra II black still going for now will see how much longer it lasts. Just took the wrapper off of my Dudley 2.0 today and it feels great right out of the wrapper hope it lasts as long a my 1st one.

For performance the rock is the best ball hands down. The Baden is better than the stote but performance on the Baden's has dropped as well since baden went to a synthetic cover instead of a composite cover.

Discussion: Cleats

Omar,From my experience yes! But like I try to tell anyone that will listen don't skimp when getting shoes IMO never were boombahs or any other inexpensive shoe, they don't hold-up well and are hard on your feet not much support. As the old saying goes you get what you pay for. Go with a name brand such as Nike, Adidas, New Balance etc. Your feet will thank you!!

Discussion: Cleats

Turf shoes work better in wet grass than you may think. Almost everyone I have played with in the last 15 years basically all wear turfs. This includes playing with the young guys up until about 3 years ago. I have personally been wearing turfs for over 20 years now. Played in a tournament on turf infields were you couldn't run the bases in cleats was the 1st tourney my feet didn't ache after the tourney I have worn turfs every since!! Do your feet a favor and switch to turfs!!

Discussion: Baden Fire Balls

Baden went to a synthetic cover instead of a composite cover for the black stitch balls. These barely perform better than the red and blue stitch balls did.
