Discussion: Speed up rules

I think there are way too many courtesy runners. Limiting it to one CR per inning would help the game move faster. It also might encourage some folks to get in a little better shape. There's no need to worry about whether or not you are fit to run if you know every time you get on base, you get a CR.

Actually for an internet discussion, it was pretty tame but I understand your point. I thought it was a pretty good exchange of thoughts for the most part. I don't understand how people making arguments in a discussion think their point is made more credible by calling someone else names but some people operate that way.

These types of discussions get uncomfortable at times but at least people are talking about it and offering solutions and ideas. So play nicely everyone!

I think it is ironic that the previous discussion which was basically a discussion that started about free speech was closed down so there could be no further comment. If people don't want to read it and take part in the discussion, move on to the next thread. There's no harm in people discussing difficult matters and exchanging thoughts and comments. Based on the participation in that discussion, it seemed to matter a lot more to the folks on this board than most of the topics that are discussed.

I don't agree with all that Webbie said but I appreciate him trying to encourage some thoughtful dialogue on the issue. It's the only way that we can move forward. There were many in that thread that took the time to research the issues and provide resources where they got their facts which is great for the discussion.

Fabe: Hawaii's Finest is a good name but I can't believe you didn't use Hawaii 50 (that would actually be a good senior name).

I think it is this simple. No one will get respect (or attention to their issue) when the way it is protested is disrespectful. The attention shines on the act of disrespect as opposed to the issue.

Discussion: Retirement Ceremony?

I saw my dad retire from the game. He was playing third and had a hot grounder hit to him. He couldn't get his glove on it and it hit him in the face and broke his glasses. He walked off the field, grabbed his equipment, gathered me an my brothers up and got in the car and left. Never played again. We would normally had laughed, but no one had the guts to do it. he laughs now, but if we would have laughed then, it would have been a bad deal.

Discussion: SOFTBALL SHOES

Alan: What turf shoes are best for wide feet based on your experience? I hate ordering any turf shoe on line because I rarely get something that fits. Thanks in advance for your help.

Discussion: Everybody fill in the blank............$$$

The old saying "to whom much is given, much is expected" comes to mind. There are a lot of near term things I would do to make life easier on myself, family and friends but it would be a burden to figure out how to handle that amount of wealth out of nowhere. One of the main concerns would be for the safety of immediate family. Someone I worked with many years ago won a about $15 million and had people showing up at his house and following him asking for money and sometimes demanding money. You'd have to be very careful about things once people knew who won. That part would be pretty scary.

After you take care of immediate needs, it would be hard to decide who you would want to help. Anyway, it's worth a few bucks to dream for a few minutes each day.

I will send an email with all of this information to the person that runs the 50 Cal clubs that are 55 and up. I do know that the 50 Cal 50s squad does not have any openings on its roster at this time. Good luck in finding a home for 2016.

Discussion: EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR RULING WMC 50-Major Matter

Neck10/ Slap hitter: I am always one to just jump on the field and play so I understand what you're saying but if they are really going to change rules and want to get a quorum or consensus, the current process doesn't allow for that.

Discussion: EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR RULING WMC 50-Major Matter

With respect to this whole discussion, does anyone think it is a pretty ridiculous process for people to fly across the country to attend a meeting in order to discuss a rule change? I laugh every time staff posts that. Here's the conversation at home.

Hey hun...I know you're not very excited about me being gone a lot of weekends and the money we put towards softball but I just wanted to let you know that I've got one more trip this year. It'll just cost about $600 so we can discuss possible rule changes...are you cool with that?

In all seriousness, that's not a process that will ever get you any kind of consensus on rule changes that SSUSA members think are needed. Since I hate complaints without a solution, let people suggest rule changes via email and only include comments from registered SSUSA members from their registered SSUSA email addresses. Pick the top 5 items and put rule changes out to a vote using a similar process. Or let each registered team have 1 vote and only votes from registered team managers count. Just throwing it out for discussion and probably should have started a new thread but this thread is already all over the board.

Discussion: New Mizuno Erupt Turf/Cleats

Thanks for the info Alan. Do they feel more solidly built than the Boombah turf shoes in your opinion? I like the Boombahs but they fall apart quickly on me typically. I have been looking for something as comfortable as those that have some durability.

Discussion: SCREENS IN TOURNAMENTS

If you use a screen, the pitcher should not be allowed to field a ground ball (could still be allowed to cover bases for force outs though). You can't have a 5 foot area that you can't hit to and then also allow a pitcher to cover extra area. That doesn't make sense. I personally don't like using them but I understand the concern.

Discussion: Why is this rule not enforced??

This pretty simple. If you step out of the box and get called out, no complaining and no exceptions. It's the rule.

Discussion: First time for everything

16 Wood. I think he had that and the other team for the outright win. What he did was almost impossible to do. I say ALMOST impossible because I saw it. Other than that, I wouldn't believe it could be done.

Discussion: First time for everything

We had a ball bounce off of our outfielders glove while running towards the fence which catapulted it about 12 feet out of the part for a game ending, walk off, 4 base error last year in a tourney. I hadn't seen a game end like that one before.
