Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Flip Flop Rule

The intent of the Flip-Flop rule is to speed along play, yet there is some confusion regarding implementation of the rule. I'll start with the current rule as written in the SSUSA rule book and then ask my questions.

"5.5(2) FLIP-FLOP RULE
The flip-flop rule will be invoked in any game when there is a 10-run differential in favor of the visiting team at the start of the "open inning." If the visiting team is ahead by ten or more runs, the home team will remain at bat and start a new at-bats (beginning their seventh or last inning at-bats), meaning all runners then on base will return to the dugout. It will be an open inning. If the home team fails to tie or go ahead of the visiting team, the game ends and the visiting team wins. If the home team ties or goes ahead, the visiting team takes its turn at bat."

1. I heard this is a mandatory rule now, but don't see where anything is stated it is mandatory. BTW, I'm in favor of this rule being mandatory.
2. What if the home team is ahead by 10 or more runs in the 5th? The Visitors come up and don't score in the 6th. Does the Home team "vacate" their at-bat in the 6th allowing the Visitors to hit again (essentially their open inning)? Naturally, should the visitors tie or go ahead, the Home team would get 6 outs to play.

Discussion: POINDEXTER RETIRES

Clyde "Point" may have retired from active tournament play, but he's still very active. He likes to share the knowledge he's learned over the last 70 (ok...40 or so) years. He's been a mentor and friend over the last year and is always willing to help a teammate (and sometimes a competitor) improve their game. Clyde wants to promote Senior Softball and has always done it with class. Sometimes, tough words get the job done and sometimes, it just takes a small tweak. "Point" knows the difference. Gonna miss seeing the big bombs buddy. Loved watching you jump the gate.

New to the circuit, but have played competitively for 30+ years. Good utility player, best position pitcher/1st/2nd/outfield, but I've played them all over the years. Good pop and always looking to get better with a fun team. Live in San Diego, CA.
