Discussion: bat break in

Pretty clear already, but to be clearer(IMO)....unless it comes directly from the manufacturer with this process already in place, it is an illegal, altered bat.

Discussion: From McFarland, WI - planning for next year

Brain came out and practiced with us (Pope Transport-50 Major)a few weeks ago. We have decided to stand pat with this years roster though. For anyone else that is still considering him, he is a nice guy, good power, great arm, decent infield glove and good speed for a power hitter. Would be a good fit for a team that is looking for an infielder on the corners but could also fill in at many other positions.

Send me an e-mail when you have a chance. May be looking to add an infielder next year on an established over 50 tourney team.

Discussion: Why is this rule not enforced??

Has any thought ever been given to moving the Mat "Back", behind home plate and not calling the plate a strike? Fully understand why the box cannot be moved forward towards the pitcher. The underlining problem that was created when the plate became a strike is how does a batter hit a 6 foot pitch that hits the front of the mat without stepping forward out of the batters box. Obviously this would put the mat very close to the back of the box though. If it is a 6 foot pitch, it is still hittable. Higher pitches to the back of he box would be tough, but batters would make the adjustments, all of which would be backwards, further way from the pitchers.

Discussion: Player Reclassification

As an individual "Major" player you can play on a "AAA" team as long as that team does not have more then a total of 3 Major players on it's roster. I'm not sure on this part, but I believe that you would need to play 2 years with a new "AAA" team to get yourself reclassified as a "AAA" player.

Discussion: ball tipped over fence with no bome runs left, bases loaded, playing rules were walks after no HR Left. what should happen.

Our team had the exact scenario happen 10+ yrs ago in NSA and it was handled the same way as you describe it. I'm not sure about Senior Softball, but that is the correct call for NSA and most likely ASA and USSSA.
