Discussion: Bat ckecks at tournaments

Was the 140 the existing standard but now just adding field testing?

We’re they good balls? Lots of complaints balls have been very inconsistent this year.

Discussion: Pitching distance

For mens slowpitch I’ve always known it to be 50’. Modified/fastpitch was 46’ 6” to the back of the rubber.

Discussion: What constitutes scoring at home plate

Touching home plate is not allowed so I look at how the field is set up. If there is a scoring plate you must touch the plate and if there is a scoring line you must pass the line.

Discussion: Looking for a NJ 50 tournament team for 2022.

Any NJ 50 tournament teams looking for players. 53 and prefer to play infield, solid hitter. Travel is not an issue.

Discussion: WHY ARE THESE OFFENSES CALLED DIFFERENTLY

The way I see it is the B/R didn’t finish his at-bat by touching first, just like any base runner missing a base. I would still have the run score and runners advance since there were no outs.

Discussion: Coin flips

I think coin flips should only be used in the pool play games since that’s where you’re setting your seeds. In DE play the choice of home or away should go to the higher seed and in the championship game the winners bracket winner should get home team if they choose. I don’t see any reason to give any benefit to the losers bracket winner at the expense of winners bracket champion. That makes no sense to me.

Discussion: Quality Softball Glove

Wilson Gloves we’re my go to gloves for years until I got a Nokona. This year I decided after 30 years of ball to get a custom one. All black, 14’ with a mix of leathers and costs about a car payment but you won’t find a better glove.

Discussion: Pitchers mask

Smash It Sports has full pitching helmets (Viper) and more old school ones as does Amazon. Since a mask is needed these days I don’t pitch. Any type of helmet/mask limits my vision and especially my peripheral vision. It’s enough where I’m not confident in my reaction time.

Discussion: Question about where player is rated...

I had never played senior ball until this year and without playing a game I was rated 50 Major since the team I joined for one tourney decided to play 50 Major. I’m not a 50 Major level player.

Discussion: Looking for an over 50 team.

I’m looking for an over 50 team for 2022. I’m in NJ and played 50 Major and U-Trip E this year. I’m out of Eastern Central NJ and would like to find a team based out of NJ. I play IF and OF but prefer IF. Will try out.

Discussion: Yet another you make the call

The opposing scorekeeper should have caught the extra batter. What happened the previous innings have no bearing but what happens to the extra batter? Is he just removed from the line-up going forward once found?

Discussion: Can a player run for another one twice in one inning?

I believe you can CR for different players during a game, done that, but can’t run for the same person so I would think it wouldn’t be allowed.

Discussion: Umpire Question

Just asking if the fielder put themselves in a bad position of going over the bag but it has nothing to do with the call. Collisions occasionally occur at first, spit happens, but this is not football where you can knock the ball loose from the player.

Discussion: Umpire Question

Did the first baseman step across the bag? As soon as First touched the bag it should have been called an out. The runner and fielder colliding should have no bearing on whether the runner is out or safe.

It did poor that night before bracket play. That complex has really nice fields.

Discussion: major plus

Some teams were strong in 50 Major but moving to 50 Major + they weren’t the big dogs anymore and weren’t happy about that. I played on a 50 Major team and I have no issue playing the Plus teams, I would welcome it. The team I played with this year I think won one game in 4-5 SSUSA/ISSA tournaments and that was against Suncoast 50 in Richmond. I’d have to think that was due to getting 5 runs.
I don’t know what the solution is but some teams go to tournaments to have a good time and others go to win.

Discussion: Bumped up teams

I have no issue with bumping teams but it should be after the season. If a team is legit at the beginning of the season they shouldn’t be punished for playing well. If they beat up on everyone in their legit age class then it is what it is.
Bill, did Freehold get bumped from Major 50 to Plus?
