Discussion: Intentional walk used to nulify a dominate hitter.

I can't stand when they won't pitch strikes to the hitter and throw four balls behind him or roll it. Just point to first! I've seen times when pitchers walked batters two or three times with stupid pitches, then the dude comes up with no home runs left and they pitch to him and get upset when the batter absolutely blows up the middle. Don't make a mockery of the game by pitching stupidly, then getting upset when it comes back to bite you!

Discussion: Strike Zone Mat

Is the mat size the same in all senior associations? I found the size in SSUSA is 34.5 x 19. Can't find it in ISSA rules.

Discussion: Covid concern

It's been a tough year for sure! We had players that had been in Myrtle Beach for a week get the news on Thursday evening before playing on Friday that players had just been quarantined due to social distancing guidelines at their work! We were forced to pickup a dude that was just hanging out at the park to have ten players! No way to get back thousands in motel money let alone all the entry fee!

Discussion: Age Brackets

I really feel that with all the COVID19 Issues ALL Associations should allow 49s in 50, 59s in 60 and 69s in 70. We played in six tournaments in 2020 and struggled to get enough every game! In Myrtle Beach we had players Quarantined at home because of Social Contact! They ended up testing negative but to late to go! We had to pickup a dude just hanging out at the park to have ten players. With the entry fee and rooms paid in advance it is ridiculous to be put in that situation. We started the season in July with 16. No way to control injuries and COVID issues! I know the SSUSA Staff understands this because of the issues you had trying to schedule Vegas games in other venues. We could not commit to the Worlds out west because of COVID and fear of losing entry fee money, hotel money and plane flight money! Thanks for reading my rant. I know everyone is frustrated!

Discussion: Rule Question

A player on third takes off for home on a ball they think will be a clean hit to the gap. Defensive player makes incredible diving catch just as the runner crosses no return line. Can the run go back to third if they crossed the line?

Actually if you look at his numbers there would be less AAA teams than now. Its the Major bracket that would increase from 38 to 70.

If you go to the plate 56 times the difference is 4 hits. 40-56 to 44-56.

Topic: Bats
Discussion: What Became of 30+ Ounce Bats?

When bats weighed 38 ounces the aluminum wasn't as strong as CU31 or C405 that came out in the 1990s. Those bats had thicker walls and heavy knobs making them more balanced. When CU31 came out wall thickness was much thinner and a 35 ounce bat was more unloaded than the old 38s. When C405 aluminum hit the market the heaviest of bats were just 32 ounces. The bat shells were much lighter being just 21- 24 ounces with the rest being end load. No telling how light these senior composite shells are before weight is added.

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Flip-Flop Rule

The one aspect of flip flop rules and using runs scored and allowed during round robin to decide seeding for bracket play that I don't like, is the fact that number of at bats during games does not figure into the equation. If my team wins two games by a total of two runs and never bats in the open inning I think the score going INTO the open inning should be used for seeding purposes. If we are up 30-19 going into the open inning and win 30-29, that score is not indicative of the actual game. If some other team with the same record has batted in the open inning wins 30-28 they the higher seed even though they got an extra at bat.

Topic: Bats
Discussion: A Question 4 U Bat/Math Geeks

If you swing both bats the same exact speed, 75mph, the heavier bat will always hit the ball further. The shells of the two bats would weigh exactly the same. The 28 would have MORE end load even if both are end loads or balanced. However, it's very doubtful you would be able to swing the 28 as fast as the 26 if both bats are the same model as you stated. It's highly probable you would swing the 26 at least 10 mph faster which changes the equation and which bat slows down more on impact. No way possible a 28 will slow down at impact more than a 26 if impact speed (75mph) of both is the exact same. Force = Mass x Acceleration. Newton's Second Law of Motion.

Discussion: Ruling clarification

You didn't address what happens if there's no home runs left and two outs in the inning. That's four outs! Two plus one for out of the box and one for over the fence after the limit.

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Ruling clarification

There is no way you can count it toward a teams home run total. The reason I make that statement is: What if there's TWO outs in the inning and the hitters team has already used up all there allotted home runs. That would make four outs! Now what happens?

Discussion: International Tie Breaker

It means you can't sub or courtesy run for the appropriate runner until they reach third base. In this scenario that would be the player that is now in the game as a legal sub since the starting player is out of the game.

Discussion: Why I like softball.

You might have a 70-30 chance of getting on base, but only one of the two teams will be happy. If you keep practicing you might improve that mediocre batting average! ;-)
