Discussion: George Mccellan Southern Az. legend gone

George was a wonderful ambassador for Senior Softball. When ever I would go to a tournament George always showed up. He would not only play but would make it a point to go around to other games and see all of his old friends. He truly loved the game of softball. I will miss my old friend.

Rules are rules. The penalty according to the rule book is clear. If you don't follow what the rule states then there is no use having rules. Cheating is cheating and altering equipment is cheating.

Discussion: Cisco Arvallo in the hospital in Phoenix

Went to see Cisco today and was amazed at the progress he is making. Cisco said to tell all his softball friends that he will keep working hard and he WILL get back on the field with them.

Frannie also looked happy. I know she is so glad to see the progress that Cisco has made..

I just wanted all of friends that have been saying prayers that it looks like it is working.

Discussion: Laughlin

I would recommend the Aquarius right now.
With Casino Drive under construction it's good to stay close to Rt. 95

When the construction is done Harrah's is also a nice place.

Good luck.

Topic: Rules of the game

With all due respect to Paul, I would say that since the pitcher did not pitch the ball that it is a no pitch.

I donít have a rule book but I have played senior ball many years and I have ďobserved what I consider similar situations many times.

I have seen a pitcher start to deliver a ball and stop before releasing for many reasons. Just to name a few:

1. A ball from another field comes into the field (even if the umpire doesnít see it).
2. A player who was just thrown out is returning to his dugout behind the catcher and it was distracting.
3. A dugout gate door is left open and the pitcher notices it.
4. A bat is in live territory and the pitcher sees it and stops because he thinks itís dangerous.
5. A fan or person wonders on the field.
6. He stops to check the positioning of his defensive players.
7. The batter steps out of the batterís box even though the ump did not call time.

I could probably list a hundred reasonís that I have seen.

In every case the call by the umpire was ďno pitchĒ. So I guess I would call it a no pitch too. Its seems to me that player safety (you said the third baseman did not have his glove on his hand) is as good a reason to not pitch as any of the ones I listed above.

To me he didnít pitch so itís a no pitch, but like I said I donít have a rule book. I only know what I have observed.

Discussion: Ultra II Beyond 2005

My vote is to keep the U2 in 2006. Freak accidents not withstanding, since the 1.20 BPF has been in use, senior softball accident rates have gone down. The data seems to say keep the bats that meet this standard.
