One more fact: all three runners advance and the 5th run is recorded.

Discussion: How is this scored #2

Batting out of turn.

Batters A and B are listed in order on the official batting order given to the ump, but listed as B and A in the batting order placed in the dugout. Batter B leads off and gets a hit, but is called out for batting out of order.

Who bats next? How is the out recorded and against which batter? (It should be recorded against the scorekeeper, but that's another story!)

Discussion: How to score this 1

Sac fly, RBI, and/or out?

Bases loaded, one out, 5th run on 3rd base. Infield is playing in a bit and outfielders are playing just beyond the infield. Pop-up behind SS - outfielder moves-in, SS moves back, but ball drops between them and then spins toward the left field line.

The ump yells "Infield Fly Ball" when ball is in the air (no argument). Runners retreat toward their bases and then run when the ball skips away from the fielders.

How is this scored? Sac Fly? RBI? ??

Discussion: Need a player for the TOC?

My team has decided not to go to the TOC and I'm looking for a 70+ or 75+ team. I am permitted by SSUSA to be added to any 75+ Major or Major+ team west of the Mississippi or any 70 Major team that borders Oregon. I might be permitted to play with a AAA team.

I'm a 600+ single hitter and play 2B, outfield and 1B for our 75+ Major team that won the Triple Grand Slam this year.

I have gone to all-but-one TOC tournaments and sure would like to go in 2016 too.

Call me at 503 314 3967 or email me at fsisavic@hotmail.com.

Discussion: DEFENSIVE STRATEGY FOR FIFTH INFIELDER

I feel so strongly about this that I name the position "middle fielder (MI)" instead of "rover." I choose the best player as MI, someone with range, good hands and a great arm.

One way to look at it: When you get up to bat, where do you want the MI to be standing? If he "roves," he has to guess where the batter hits.

Then we often have the pitcher cover second base with 2 outs and a man on first base. Then we put the SS, 2Ber, and MI well onto the grass. I hate to bat against this lineup.

Of course, if I'm an exclusive pull hitter, I don't want the MI in short field (so I move the MI to short field in those cases).

Another point: Using the MI in the middle helps the SS and 2Ber. When the MI shades the right side, the SS can move into the 5-6 hole and flipped around for a lefty.

One other point: having the MI hover around second base will get you a few easy double plays which are more important than the rover snagging a line drive or pop-up.

Caution: making all this work requires substantial practice and buy-in. Working on where the SS, 2Ber, and MI play on double plays, force-outs, relays etc. is essential. Poor teamwork around second base can destroy a good infield.

Discussion: Unloader Knee Brace

Three+ years ago I was told that I needed surgery because I had bone-on-bone on the medial side (inside) but cartilage on the lateral side (outside). I could barely walk with all the pain, but wasn't ready to take months off from softball.

I went for a second opinion and was told to try the un-loader brace. Now, at age 76, the pain is almost at zero and I'm still using the brace. The brace, which costs about $1,000-$1,500, was covered by Medicare.

Good luck leftybob.

Discussion: You Make the Call - Crash at Second Base

Batter hits the ball into left center. He rounds 1st and heads for 2nd. The throw is on time but low. The second baseman bends down and catches the ball. The runner crashes into the second baseman knocking him to the ground. Ump says the crash was unintentional and there is no penalty for knocking down the second baseman. Correct call?

Next call.

Man on 1st base and no outs. The batter hits the ball to SS. The throw to 2nd base is on time but low. The second baseman bends down and catches the ball. The runner crashes into the second baseman knocking him to the ground. Ump says the crash was unintentional and, even though the batter was a very slow runner, there was no attempt by the second baseman (rolling on the ground)to throw to 1st base, so the batter was called safe at 1st. Correct call?

Discussion: You Make the Call - Infield Fly

Men on 1st and 2nd with no outs. Batter hits high pop behind 2nd base. Umpire calls Infield Fly. The infielders start towards the ball and the ump yells, "I made a mistake" as it became clear that no one had a chance to catch the ball. The ball hits the ground and the runners take off for 2nd and 3rd, and the batter runs to 1st. Umpire calls everyone safe and apologizes. The defensive team erupts! Was the ump correct?

Would the call change if both runners stayed on base and the batter never ran 1st, and the defense turned a triple play?

Discussion: Partial Knee Replacement Experience

My surgeon recommended a Robotic Arm Assisted Partial Knee Resurfacing (MAKOplasty). Has anyone used this type of surgery? What was your experience and how long did it take before you were able to play? Any other advice would be appreciated.

Discussion: When to postpone shoulder surgery?

I'm interested in anyone's experience in postponing shoulder surgery.

I have a partially torn rotator cuff, damaged labrum, bone spurs, and arthritis. I have full range of motion, can throw underhand and bat as well as ever, but I collapse with excruciating pain if I try to throw a softball overhand. I can throw underhand pretty well if the distance is short.

At almost 75, I'm wondering if it's worth going through the surgery and long recovery. I can still play offence, but my defense is limited to first base, catcher and some second base.

Has anyone in the player-sphere postponed or decided to not do the surgery?

Thanks for the help, gents.

Discussion: Shoulder Surgery Recovery Time

Thanks guys. I appreciate your success stories.

I've been a bit reluctant to do the surgery because I can still hit and play some first base, so I was happy to hear about Missouri Dave's experience that he could still bat while rehabbing the full year after the surgery.

Discussion: Shoulder Surgery Recovery Time

I'd like to know player's experiences with recovery from shoulder surgery.

I have a partially torn rotator cuff, damaged labrum, bone spurs, and arthritis. I have full range of motion, can throw underhand and bat as well as ever, but I collapse with excruciating pain if I try to throw a softball. I'm 74.

What kind of recovery can I expect? How much time would it take before I can swing a bat and/or throw again?

Thanks, guys and gals.

Discussion: rotator cuff rehab

Delay Surgery?

Any advice?

Discussion: Funniest Softball Stories

SUPER SLIDER. It was late in the Championship game and I reached first base with a bloop-hit into right field. Harry Barber hit a screaming hard liner into left-center. I headed for second and watched the ball. The left fielder picked it up cleanly just before I reached second. I slowed down as I rounded the base and watched the relay to the shortstop in short left field. The shortstop muffed the relay and I took off towards third base.

I was almost to third and realized I had made a mistake when I heard my stern but loveable, manager, yell, “Slide! Slide!”

I knew I was in trouble. I had learned the game in New York City concrete school yards and had never learned to slide. However, because of the roars of the Coach, I launched myself the way a championship swimmer would dive horizontally into the water. I flew toward third base perfectly parallel to the ground with a headfirst slide hoping not to be called “out” by the ump and balled-out by the Coach. I’ve been told my slide was a thing of beauty with a big cloud of red dust and dirt.

I was lying flat on my stomach with hands straight out when I heard the ump yell,” Safe! I made it and felt great! But the euphoria didn't last. The dust settled and everyone noticed my outstretched fingers were four inches from the third base bag. The loudest ever “You're out!” rang through the stadium including the Coach’s steaming ears.

The slide became legendary when Harry Barber awarded me the Super Slider at our year-end team party—a vest with small training wheels attached at the chest area. So now you know how to identify me on the field. Look for the bright orange Super Slider vest!

Discussion: one out bases loaded

SSUSA. I'm confused, which is easy for me to become. I thought I understood until SSUSA brought up the concept of the requirement to "vacate" the base. Two questions:

1. Does the requirement to "vacate" end when the 3rd baseman first steps on 3rd base, making the force at home null and void?

2. Alternatively, see my question above about taking 1 or 2 steps off 3rd base and then returning to 3rd base after the 3rd baseman steps on 3rd base and then throws home?
