Wayne37, interesting you mention Gary Johnson. Third party candidates are generally in the race to take votes from one candidate in order to help the other. It was commonly believed that a vote for Ross Perot helped Bill Clinton in 1992. A vote for Ralph Nader helped George W Bus in 2000. Taking away his baffling comments who do think a vote for Johnson helps, Trump or Hillary?
Keep in mind Johnson did run in the GOP,primary in 2012. Or was it 2008? (JimmyG help me out here!! lol)

RIK56, Tammy Duckworth is an Iraq war veteran who is a double amputee. She servves as a democratic congressional representative from Kansas. I believe she is running for a Senate seat think year. While most people would agree her service is commendable in a nutshell her criticism from pro military pro police people stems from her liberal left wing viewpoints regarding the war.
As I understood it some felt she was using her status as an amputee and Iraq veteran as political ploy to get elected.

Wayne37, It's interesting you condemn others for criticizing Obama, Hillary, Dixie Chicks and now Tammy Duckworth. How come I haven't read you condemn anyone that's directed any criticism of Trump or any other people on the right?

Wayne37, I can understand your frustration but keep in mind, when your the top dog--whether that be POTUS, a known celebrity, a star athlete, entertainer, even the top senior softball team in your division, there are always those who are going to be critical no matter what. It just goes with the territory.
Like Webbie asked, I'm also curious which prominent republicans publically praised the Phillipines President for his comments toward Obama? I would think if there were the media would (borrowing your line here) go "wild like feeding piranahs".
Even Donald Trump condemned those comments.
Just my $0.02 worth

Wayne37, perhaps I'm beating a dead horse here but you posed this question earlier which I found interesting:
If anybody should feel disrespected in this country, it is President Obama. I've never read or heard so much BS in all my life directed to one person. They even talk BS about his wife. Why is it the same people that think they are the patriots of America feel it is their undeniable right to slander and libel about their sitting president?
I won't disagree the man has experienced heavy criticism but allow me to answer your question with this quote:

"I'm sick and tired of people who say if you debate and disagree with this administration, somehow your not patriotic. We need to stand up and say we're Americans, and we have the right to debate and disagree with any administration"

Can you guess who authored this quote?

Webbie, can I be your running mate in 2020? 😀

Discussion: Colin Kaepernick credibility?

I could be mistaken but didn't he sign a 6 year $114 million dollar contract with the 49ers a few years ago? If so that's a pretty decent contract I'd say.
Irregardless of his actions regarding the national anthem I thought he'd be a good fit for Chip Kelly's no huddle, up tempo offense. Time will tell.

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Are time-outs allowed after umpire calls "Batter up"?

Unless otherwise specified by a given association there is no rule that I know of that specifically stipulates an umpire cannot give time out to a batter while the pitcher is in his/her motion. It's an unwritten rule they aren't supposed to and most don't. but an umpire can call time out whenever he/she chooses to.
When I umpire I tell coaches in the pre game that batters will automatically get time out before the first pitch to get set. After that it's on them to ask for time out.

Discussion: throwing a bat

Staff is right, nothing is specific about bat throwing in SSUSA rule book although to me it would fall under unsportsmanlike conduct. In USSSA your tossed and you have to go 300 ft away.

Discussion: What is the Proper Ruling

amr-4-lc, as an umpire this may come across as harsh. Unless there is a league rule specifically stipulating teams may add a player or two from another or opposing team to make 10 players I would not have allowed that.
I fully understand the spirit, comradery, fairness, integrity and kindness of lending a player but there is far too much liability at stake in case someone gets injured and decides on a lawsuit.

Alan, I am so sorry to learn of your sons passing. It has to be one of the toughest things in the world to deal with. My thoughts and prayers are with you, your family and friends.

Discussion: 2nd base RUN BY LINE

Several years there was a winter indoor league we played in that had this rule. It did take some getting use to but for the most part it worked out ok. If after crossing to the right of second you made a turn toward running to third you could be tagged out. It was strictly an umpire judgement. There was also a no sliding rule--of course we played on a carpet type turf and no one in their right mind would dare slide on that stuff!!

Discussion: flip flop and one up in league play

I'm not certain playing 3-2 speeds the game up because IMO most players don't wait until they have a full count to swing. What can speed the game up a little is whats called the hurry up rule. Between innings the pitcher takes one warm up pitch and there is no "coming down". Right back to the pitcher and batter up.

Discussion: Brickyard results

The directors were in a catch-22, dam if they did, dam if they didn't. I will say with 99.99% certainty that if these were house league games, they would have cancelled the weekend.

Discussion: its a little long, but please give your opinion......

Suppose I'm a major team and your triple a. You get 5 runs at the start of the game as you specified. If your the visitors and score 5 runs in the top of the 1st inning I'm down 10 with no chance to catch up when my team is up. To me that's not right.
Personally I believe the whole idea of giving up runs or an extra fielder is not right. Play straight up ball!!
I can see playing the lower level home run rule and runs per inning rule (if applicable) being used, but that's it.
Just my humble opinion

Discussion: Half Run Rule

I agree wholeheartedly 100% slap hitter. To answer your question of what's next, how about a lower team getting 4 outs an inning? I suspect at some point if it hasn't been brought up, it will be.... you never know what's upcoming.

Discussion: Half Run Rule

Slap hitter, as an aside, OKI was never in that position. To answer your question, I can't speak for our manager but in the years I played with OKI I cannot conceive of any circumstance where that team would take an extra fielder (or runs). Personally I'm not into the entitlement mentality.
Question: In SSUSA if your playing against a lower level team by rule don't they have to take one of the equalizers or is it optional?
