have you noticed, a lot of teams on here looking for players, one thing they all have in common, is looking for a pitcher, interesting, there are getting harder to find!

In any sport you have your keys to a good team, hockey goalie, football quarterback, and so on, i am 62, have been running a team since we turned 50, we started at 50, went to 55, then 60 and probably should play 65, chicago prime, every year when planning our roster number one priority was pitchers, then go from there, if we didnt have pitching we didnt have a team, we pulled out of tournaments with 14 guys but one or none pitchers that weekend, because no one will pitch unless you are one, this year i am retiring from tournament ball and just going to pitch in local leauges and have fun and not worry about getting hit, more and more of us are doing it, glen hall goalie for the blackhawks threw up before evey game knowing what was coming, know they have masks better equipment, etc, off my soapbox, im done good health to everyone

Just like a dangerous intersection, nothing is done till its to late, looks like the majority are for it, have a few screen tournaments for the majority of us chickens, that don't have the broken bones to show for it, just because there is a screen it would be the pitchers choice on wether he wants to stand behind it or not

almost every league is going to a screen, for liability issues, the only one not using it is the tourneys, lets see who will be the first, then everyone will follow,

The 11th player doesn't help the pitcher from getting hit, once the ball is in play the screen becomes part of the playing field,thats why you have screen tournaments for teams who want it and tourneys for who don't, you will be schocked

My friend plays in the florida half century tournaments, this year they have gone to the screen,its the wave of the future, used to play 16 inch without gloves now they have glove tourneys, I think some association should try a few screen tourneys and see the results, you might be surprised,

I play in four league's they all use screens I think if a association trys a screen tourney and sees what the turnout is, and feedback you would have a better idea,
