Discussion: Answer this.

I like to add to this debate.. I play in a travel league following SPA rules with a net and 11 fielders.. I saw our pitcher got blown up and knocked out of a game. I’m playing 60’s in a competitive league, they hit middle regardless. I know the pros and cons. I also know that change will happen in the future. I would say the younger guys—. 40 to 60 could be the option and 70 plus no option.. I’m all about safety and not ego. I would like to see lightweight chest protectors be available or made for softball. Money is to be made if someone could develop one..

We are a community and we need to treat it as such….

Discussion: Stepping out of the box to avoid being quick-pitched

I will say this, pitchers are creatures of habit.. if you the first hitter of the game and he quick pitches you.. The umpire will catch him and make the correction right there establishing the boundary. After that it’s game on. Normally like the others I will give you the first time in the at bat to settle in and be ready. If asked I will grant you reset. This is softball, and the same can be said about the pitcher. If he is ready and the batter is in the box doing other than get set.. It’s on you the batter. There is a time limit between pitches and I’ve had to enforce it a few time as well.. Be courteous to the umpire and it will go along way in your experience in the batter box..

Discussion: Umpire Question

Having played in Dalton and seeing the mix bag of umpires with associations i.e. USA/ISSA , they could have interpreted the rule like the fly ball or other by having control through the play.. That all I could think of… They used 2 man as well on Saturday and why didn’t the go to other umpire or call for a director… We do things better than the other association and this is one of them…

Discussion: What's the call?

I’ve got the solution for it all.. You guys call out the umpires and their motives or lack of motivation.. Why not become part of the solution and join the dark side.. We are always looking for good, qualified and willing people to umpire… Or better yet, save a bunch of money and self umpire your games.. I’m part of several league who do this… I have no problem giving up my clicker, weekends, and attitude to watch you guys self umpire a tournament…

Discussion: Umpires Making the Right (or Wrong) Call

Some of you guys do a lot of umpire bashing on this site…We have seen a lot of situations from all over and you pick one play out thousands to point out..Talk to your area UIC or Rick Seifman if you feel the need.. As a SSUSA umpire we don’t talk about teams in the same way as you talk about umpires.. we are not perfect, but 95-99 percent accurate is better than your batting averages or fielding percentage along with pitching accuracy…. And yes I’ve blown call, but I also corrected it if I was wrong doing 2 man… most of my colleagues will agree until you take the human factor out of it.. it is what it is…

Discussion: Pitchers. A bit insane?

I also resemble those remarks.. I’ve pitched for 35 years and have the ball marks/broken digits and memories to make me smile.. I still pitch in travel leagues and cherish every moment.. I would like to pitch one more tournament and enjoy the comradeship of the senior community..

Discussion: Ruling

You missed the part about inserted into the line up in the bottom of the inning.. He played defense, which by rule he has satisfied the intent of the rule.. He wasn’t inserted at the top of the 8th.. BJ is the runner on 2nd…

Discussion: Rockin Reno and Carson City

As an umpire, I like Carson City.. The people treat you great, parking is good, and they do a great job with the fields.. The back drop of that hill especially late in the day is awesome.

Discussion: Excessive Speed

If you can throw with excessive speed at 50ft or 60ft and hit the mat.. That’s real good.. I pitch and umpire, I have to have more information on the situation..... USSSA can get away with it, but not with the mat and 6-12 ft arc..
