Discussion: Why is this rule not enforced??

Just get a stick and hit. Rules are Rules, Actions are Facts. You can either play or talk. If you ain't cheating, you ain't trying. Everybody else does it. Rules, I don't need no stinking rules. Not in my back yard. Rising tides raise all ships. Good is the downfall of great. Hit and sit. Use the Force, Luke. Can't we all just get along. I want my mommy. Yes Dear. It is in the mail. And when it is all said and done. PLAY BALL.

Discussion: Why is this rule not enforced??

Interesting discussion, but moot point. The box is the box. In a previous life I umpired a lot and even did my stint as Chief Umpire. It always amazed me that players/parents/coaches found certain rules they wanted me disregard because they thought they did not make sense.

The reason a batter runs up or stays back in the box is to hit a pitch in their preferred swing arch/zone. Regardless of height or weight, I have seen 6'9" hitters stay in the box and hit pitches and I have also seen 5'6" hitters almost always out of the box.

Bottom-line hitters learn to hit their pitch when it is there or learn how to hit the pitcher's pitch. Difference is, you may not get the result you wanted, but you optimize the opportunity that presents itself. The most difficult batters for pitchers to face is the batter does not care if it is a strike or ball. If he can reach it, he will hit it and be happy with the result.

Contract with Trump has not yet expired. Until that happens SSUSA cannot talk about a new ball even if it was going to happen.

FYI to my friends playing in San Clemente. Traffic is always a bear in the summer, but this weekend there are 250 soccer teams in the area as well. Good Luck.

Old Dawgs had great defense and timely hitting. The scores will look like a cake walk but they did work to get things done. The funny part is they were two singles away from going home in the first game of the day. I love softball, but it does not always love me.

Discussion: Religious ceremonies at tournaments

I lead prayer after the game, if someone else wants to lead then I welcome their voice. Participation is voluntary, that being the operative word. I am not offended by those that do not participate, I am not ashamed by my desire to pray.

Maybe if the 3rd baseman was not playing left field he would cut it out.

Discussion: SSUSA Needs to review bat rule

What is unsaid is, someone probably thought the bat was altered. Now when I was youngish and strongish, I would use an ASA bat on short fields aka Oxnard, but considering the 40's were playing on the 320 fields probably not the case.

Discussion: SSUSA Needs to review bat rule

I have no dog in this fight, but instead of tip toeing around and calling somebody a crybaby, just say (insert name here) did the above and my name is (insert name here). If you are going to slam an individual at least do it straight up. If you really wanted to affect change, write up the issue and submit to SSUSA. I feel confident SSUSA does not want its TD's or umpires affecting decision of a game to their benefit unethically.

Topic: Tournaments
Discussion: Pool games....???

Entry fee not withstanding, the real costs of a tournament to a team is travel/lodging. 5 games at least make it more palpable when talking costs on a per game basis.

The organizations are trying to do their best to maximize play and expenditure. If you don't feel the format is suited to your team, then play local one day tournaments. These are for profit organizations and they are trying to put out a product that creates an environment of growth and repeat customers.

What is the optimum word in this thread, not pool, not tourney, GAMES. More the merrier, more at bats, more better.

Discussion: Best ball in Hot Weather

Alot of people looking and no one is responding. I don't want a "Hot" ball, I just want a ball that holds up in all type of weather. I believe that the NCSSA hit a good ball, SPA, and I heard NSA has a decent one. Need opinions!
