Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Batters Box Rule Change

I like the intent of the rule but might we be asking a lot of an umpire? I believe a little clarity would be helpful. e.g. a batter who has a hard swing and a powerful rotation could well hit the ball with his back foot as prescribed - back of the forward point of home plate at contact but at the moment of contact the back foot for many will lift a little and move forward with the force of the rotation which could result in the back foot landing in front of home plate. That motion tends to happen very quickly. There are many videos available to demonstrate this effect.

Discussion: Batters Box Rule Change

Regarding the batters box rule change: “The batter must take an initial position with his back foot no further forward than a line defining the front edge of home plate. The batter will be called out if he hits the ball when the back foot is completely further forward than the line defining the front edge of home plate”.

A question as to how the new rule might be applied. Is it meant to be applicable at the point of contact with the ball or where the back foot eventually ends up at the completion of the swing. Some batters forward stride with the lead leg at contact will cause the momentum of the stride and hip rotation to drag their back foot forward of the plate after contact, also some left-handed hitters often slap the ball toward 3rd base and are already running at contact.

I believe the point BruceinGA was making is that an illegal bat would be one without the SSUSA approval stamp.

There is a caveat to that rule; ..."EXCEPTION: Major Plus teams may draw up to four players from the other Canada Region pursuant to §13.1(2)C."

Discussion: Definition of "moderate speed" of a pitch

The question posed by BillC48 is a good one. Since the pitching distance option has increased the speed of the pitched ball can also increase allowing a good pitcher to impact the game with a bigger verity of pitching e.g. a good curve ball can be very effective with the 1/1 count.

Did the ball at any point hit the ground before or during it's ricochet to the 2nd base person?

Discussion: Western Nationals Schedule

A small error on the men's 70 platinum schedule of no consequence but for clarification purposes. The championship bracket should probably say: Wed./Thursday.

Do the players dugouts have a sun screen at the Sacramento complex?

Agree with your comments.
One of my favorite locations to play at as Wallace Marine has that "old school feel" being in the middle of a park.

Is there further clarification available on rule change No. 6, specifically as it relates to M+ team who may play in a M division due to lack of M+ teams?

opposite side of the Mississippi River from their home state without giving an equalizer
(and being required to compete as an Open Division team).

I could not agree more, good post!

Wallace Marine Park has always been one of favorites. For us, it is unfortunate that this tournament and the Western Nationals are so close together.

Discussion: Balls being used in Nor Cal Championships

I thought the Worth ball used in Reno was fine but we did not see 100* heat. I believe it got into the 80s in Reno and at that Temp. the ball hit well.
