Discussion: Drum Roll...the Starting Count decision results.

For the record, no one in any of our local leagues, where we've used the 1 - 1 count for the last 30 or so years, has Ever even once suggested, requested, complained or otherwise asked to change to the 0 - 0 count.
Probably not just a coincidence.

What about the Easton Ronin alloy bat, anyone swung that one?

Oz, the team that loses a 5 or 6-inning game ALWAYS wishes that they had the chance to play the full 7 innings the way the sport was always intended to be.
And NOBODY goes to a tournament hoping they get to play less innings or have fewer At Bats.
If that was the case they could just stay home.
Now get back on your yellow brick road & stay there.

Thanks Dave; figured you would say that but it is a fair point

Why not let teams play 1-1 in Any division whenever both managers agree to it rather than being forced to play with rules neither team wants?

Discussion: 1 and 1 count

Genwa; there can be no study, actual or otherwise, that could prove that 6 pitches will be "consumed" more quickly than 4 or 5 pitches.
Plus many batters are swinging at the 1st strike in the 1-1 count to avoid being in a 2-strike hole vs many hitters taking at least 1 strike in the 0-0 count because they can.
Anyone that's played both knows this is true.

Discussion: 1 and 1 count

Come on now, it's simple math & numbers can't lie.
With the 0 - 0 count the maximum pitches per an At Bat is SIX.
With 1 - 1 the maximum is FIVE pitches with a courtesy foul or FOUR pitches without a courtesy foul.
Even in the era of Fake News 4 or 5 is still less than 6 . . .

When you can no longer sleep comfortably on the side with the shoulder pain it's time to have the surgery.

How does this bat compare to the original Ultra 2 red Maxload?

Discussion: change tie breakers.. lets hear your thoughts

Wow, guess there's no limit on bad sportsmanship.
Batter should have told Manager to go jump in the lake or maybe tell his Manager to go pinch-hit himself if he wants an intentional strike out.
Too bad the ump didn't make them Flip-Flop anyway . . .

Discussion: change tie breakers.. lets hear your thoughts

Actually it doesn't make any sense.
You can't "run up the score" when you're only allowed to score 5 runs per inning.
And the only teams that can truly run up the score in the Open inning are the M+ teams & they are now automatically the Home team whenever they play a non-M+ team so they still can't run up the score.
Coop you were right the 1st time; a team that wins both their games by a score of 20 - 10 will have a worse seed than a team that wins their 2 games each by a score of 10 - 9 so yeah the current system doesn't make sense.

Discussion: Bad experience for a Class Tournament - Worlds

The irony here is that everyone gets excited & expects an Out to be called whenever a runner touches the wrong plate so why is there a difference with this play?

Discussion: Players with the same number on a team

One year our Sunday morning touch football team all wore the same jersey number (2) & our team was called The Clones.
The referees actually got a kick out of it cause they could just throw a flag & say "Penalty on #2".
No one got upset or complained . . .

You would know if it was an original gray Ultra, those bats were insane . . .

Discussion: Equalizers

Thanks Nancy; we already play with 11 fielders in this league but giving the underdog a 12th fielder as in a 5th outfielder could be a good equalizer.
Pretty sure we'd get very little support for batting off-handed, too many players have enough challenge hitting normally . . .

Discussion: Equalizers

Thanks Dave & MD; we like the Runner on 2nd base option since we want the underdog to have to earn their equalizer instead of just being gifted runs.
We do have some Draft leagues already but the Co-Rec Senior league has been ongoing for about 20 years and the players don't want to break up their teams.
Another idea might be to allow the underdog to score up to 7 runs per inning vs 5 runs for the higher level team.

Discussion: Equalizers

We have a 6-team Senior Co-Rec league with a lot of disparity between the teams.
We're looking for "equalizers" to make the games more competitive.
Anyone have any ideas beyond the standard 5-run spot?
Thanx for any suggestions . . .
