Discussion: Runner struck by batted ball while on base in fair territory

Whats the call if the ball is hit low and the runner jumps straight up to avoid getting hit and the ball hits him while he is in the air but he comes back down on the base ?

I dont want to be THAT guy but the discount codes are about to expire for the hotels. The deadline was Tuesday, can you let us know what the field assignments are for session 2 in Phoenix ?

Bruce303, rooms everywhere have dramatically gone up. You definitely want to use the discount code this year. In the past it didnt seem to be that big of a savings but this year it helped a lot. We stay at South Point and we had a couple of guys book their rooms without using the code. They were originally going to be over $770 for Wed thru Sat nights. After re booking the rooms the cost was $462.

Book now if you haven't already as the discounted price is about to expire for some of the hotels.

The cost of plane tickets have also gotten somewhat expensive.

Discussion: no respecting to softball players

Einstein, theres a guy i havent seen in years. He was 1 tough SOB, i remember playing against him in Nor Cal and seen him take a couple of absolute missles off his chest while playing 3rd base and 1 while he was pitching. I could not believe he would carry on like it was nothing. He was the only guy also that ove seen use a gardening glove as a batting glove.

NYGNYY, just got back from the Westerns. The AD Starr was used this weekend. There was a little drop off in the afternoon when it got hot ( was over 100 both Friday and Saturday ) but the ball was an improvement over the ball that was used in Reno. I heard no complaints about the ball this weekend unlike Reno.

Discussion: Question about Brambleton, VA fields

Omar, we were there that weekend, there was only 1 major+ team in our bracket. As you know that is an open field so they use temp fences. They should ( and could have ) been at 320 max. I did not hear of any complaints from the outfielders on any of the teams but on Sunday there were a lot of tired guys. That was a lot of ground to cover, and what should have been singles were doubles. There were more complaints from batters hitting balls 350 + that were caught. There was no reason to have the fences back that far.

Discussion: Score

Ive been having the same issues ad HSquared. I cannot open brackets or scores on my Android. My I pad or computer works just fine. This started sometime early this year. Im not sure if its a Google issue or something changed with SSUSA.

Downtown Franklin is is a great place, some very food places to eat. Check out Leipers Fork Distillery which is about 15 minutes from downtown if you have the time. You wont be disappointed.

Discussion: Balls for Rock N Reno

At least its a .44 375 ball so it should be good. Time will tell how it holds up in warmer weather as the forecast next in Reno is mid 80's.

Both teams will be hitting the same ball, so cant blame the ball if you lose.

Discussion: How would you rule?

Id have ballgame also, it sucks for the home team but rules are rules. Hard to believe that they didnt know the rule if they are playing in high school.

I bet a few of the parents of the home team wrongfully so let the umpires have it.

Discussion: batter interference

True B J, in senior ball with a mat , I dont remember ever seeing a catcher actually catch the ball before it hit the ground. If he was close enough to the mat to catch the ball in the air he'd get his head taken off. Most of us as a batter has caught the ball in the air if its coming at us or clearly inside without a word from either rhe umpire or the catcher.

Discussion: Rockin Reno and Carson City

Looks like the 50's have played at Golden Eagle 7 out of the last 9 years. If using a rotating schedule, yes the 50's would be due to play in Carson City this year since last year didnt happen.

Discussion: Upcoming St George Tournament Schedule 55+ AAA

Wood, we were there last weekend as well and also last year for the Worlds using the same ball. From my understanding, it is not SSUSA telling us that we have to use this ball, its coming from the local authorities telling SSUSA that we cannot hit those balls due to the complaints from the residents that live in the houses that are being pelted from the balls.

While the ball isnt very good, Little Valley fields are great and both teams are using the same ball so at least its fair. Id play there again at the next chance, it sure beats no ball at all like we have in Cali.

Stick8, it sounds like we have pretty much the same rules as Franjan. In our league, even tho you can run wide of the bag to avoid a collision it doesn't matter if you touch the bag or run wide as long as you dont make a turn towards the next bag or home plate you can walk back to the bag without the risk of being tagged out.

Discussion: COVID 19 PROTOCOLS

Agree with Sodtball4b, its not really a big deal to wear a mask so we can take the field. It sure beats not playing. Im sure the connotation of ' senior softball " could be a tough sell to local governments who hear that and envision a bunch of old guys who are more at risk of hospitalization if they contract Covid. We are lucky to be playing at all, lets keep each other safe.

Gee DC Pete, thats what i was trying to say. Lol.

As usual BJ & Stick are correct. It really comes down to each league and how their rule is written. In ours, there is no penalty for the runner touchs the bag if there is no defender there. If the defender is pulled off the bag the runner should be allowed to step on the bag. The runner as long as he/she does turn towards the next base or plate should be allowed to walk back to that base with no risk of being tagged out.

Discussion: Rule interpretation

Franjan, our local club also has in place the rule where you can run wide left or right of tue bag depending on where the defensive player is for both day and night play. It is used in night play even tho the majority of players range from 50 - 60 but we do have a few guys who are pushing 70 that come out to play.

As for your question, a player CAN touch the bag as long as the fielder is not postioned there without the risk of being tagged out before he returns to the bag and cannot be called out for touching the bag.

Also if the batter is trying to take 2 or 3 bases and a throw is coming in, he just needs to make a swipe tag motion ( without actually touching the runner ) to make the out.
