Discussion: New Rules

Since the parks here play Utrip, I know that even they eliminated the extra foul a couple of years ago.

Discussion: Sad news from Indy...Phil Grimpe

Mel, thanks. I have been out of town and had not heard this. I looked up the link to his obituary if anyone wants it. http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/indystar/obituary.aspx?n=phillip-arthur-grimpe&pid=182972834&fhid=11921 Phil started playing 45s at Metro with Coachie right after he moved here and was on our senior team for a while. He also mowed grass for Coachie at the park. I am glad to see that you are still beating the odds and always look forward to seeing you.

Discussion: Retirement Ceremony?

I have never seen a retirement ceremony but have seen celebrations of life, marriage proposals, and weddings on the diamond. Relevant items were placed on home plate, first base, or the outfield depending on the event. I have had requests that I have honored before for me to ring up a player on strike 3 or to eject them posthumously. Either of those might be appropriate for retirement. I wish them well. Just have fun with it. I am sure that it would mean a lot to all involved.

Discussion: Brickyard Invitational

titanhd, they worked on the fields after the 1:00 AM finish and have been working like zombies all week. We did look in the small garage for anything like that. They don't have squeegees but use some kind of absorbent pillows. All of that equipment is in the big barn across the parking lot. The grounds crew took a couple of hours to rest until the diamonds were firm enough to support dragging. I hear the equipment doing diamonds between games now. Sorry, I am really proud of them for all that they have done on a challenging five days. I wish you the best of luck in your games. I compliment your team and the others for great play this weekend.

Sparky.1, all games are being played right now. The grounds crew, TD Tim, and the umpires are the best. What a great bunch of games. Wish you were here.

Hi, Rich. I just checked the umpire schedule that Tony gave me, and he doesn't have you on it, but if history repeats itself, there may be some opportunities to get some games in.

I just found out that it's National Superhero Day. The grounds crew, Tim, and the umpires are mine on this day of honoring them. Even American Ninja Warriors delayed filming last night because of the storms. Of course my number one superhero is Coachie who loved senior softball so much.

17black, you know that softball and the players are always in my prayers. I firmly believe that Midwest has the best grounds crew in the U.S. Teams are playing right now, and we were smoked by severe storms last night and this morning. I doubt that we would be playing at most parks, but the grounds crew attacked those fields, and they are in pretty good shape, definitely feel good, and everyone looks and sounds happy.

Neck10, I see that you requested diamond 3. ;-)
I hope to get downtown and watch you compete in American Ninja Warrior. Best of luck to you in anything that you do compete in this week, my friend.

You might want to come down and visit the Brickyard this weekend. Some of the finest 55 teams in the Midwest will be playing. I really enjoyed watching your championship game in Columbus.

Rich, that is awesome. I look forward to seeing you. It never hurts to be able to write the mileage off when traveling to tournaments or rooms.

Neck10, American Ninja Warrior is filming on the Circle next week. I checked, and they have no gates. Are you competing?

Neck10, I talked with Butch this morning and told him that the gate on Diamond 3 is still the same in case you needed to contact Dave about not wanting to be scheduled on that field. The good thing is that your umpire that day will not be working this year. I saw your good friend, John, down in Columbus last weekend.

The gate is closed, and the balls still go through...especially on a wild throw from the shortstop.

Rich, were you interested in officiating any games this year? I know that you mentioned it last year. Thanks.

Discussion: coaches touching a runner

Gary, there is no guarantee that an umpire knows the rules, but a HR is a dead ball situation. There should be no issue in hit and sit, but in baseball for instance, the ball is dead, and an appeal on touching a base should be the only rally killer.

Discussion: Another Goodbye

Sometimes the saddest part of senior softball is that we are at the end of our years. Thank you, Terry, for letting us know about our friend, Don Stratton. I am very fortunate to have shared some really good memories with him over the last couple of years. I know he is in Heaven getting the players organized. I am sure that Coachie already has him playing on a team. My prayers go out to his family, friends, and all of us that he left behind. Always live, and play like it's your last day on Earth.

Discussion: batter's box

ARS, thanks for thinking of me. This is one of those situations that I call heart rules because players get so emotional about it that is almost useless to try and explain. So while will sit with you in the parking lot and talk about until sunrise, I am not even going there in this public forum. I will say that you can tell inexperienced umpires because they fixate on it when players are chirping about it. Have only ever had one intentional truly out of the box called in a B World Series. He of course complained. Only told him messing with the wrong girl and explained. They were out of homeruns, and he ran a couple of feet out of the front of box trying to nail pitcher (another heart rule argument) which I told him.

Is it softball season yet?

Ho, another secret, SSUSA has 2 qualifiers in Indiana, and ISA has their Senior World Series there. Hope to see you at the Brickyard at Indy.

Discussion: Looking for a 40+ team

Smitty13, if you will click on Ratings above and click on Men's 40+, you can click on the State heading, and it will sort the list. It looks like there are 6 teams in Maryland. If you need more information on a specific team, I am sure one of us can help you.

It's great to play with kids your own age.

Discussion: Good Luck Fat Nancy's

17Black, well you are full circle from when we talked in May, back to Florida instead of coming from it. I really wish I was going to be down there this weekend. I am definitely a Fat Nancy's fan although so far only from a distance. Good luck to you as well.

I would probably end up in trouble for 2 AM golf cart racing.
