I'd like to have a dollar for each time I've heard:

Discussion: Intentional walk rule

Good points Oz.
Just play ball and whatever happens, happens.
Jackbrun, if I was umpiring that league and this player refused an intentional walk I'd warn him and if he refused to take first base I'd toss him.

Discussion: illegally batted ball

Jonsey, any bunt, chop or not taking a full swing that results in a foul ball is a dead ball out. It's an umpire judgement.
Mad Dog is correct. There is no rule that states a swing must be a certain speed.

Discussion: Travelling question

Excellent topic! When I fly to tournaments I always carry a one day uniform along with my glove, cleats and contact lenses. It sounds like a lot but it doesn't take up a whole lot of room in a standard size carry on roller bag.

Discussion: Everybody fill in the blank............$$$

When I think about this even more I believe it would be prudent to hire a competent attorney and a competent financial advisor to make sure I don't foolishly spend all this money I'm going to win Wednesday night :)
Meanwhile back in the real world, would anyone fully sponsor the senior tournament team they play on?
I'm not so certain I would but what I would do is cover every teams entry fee in the senior leagues I play in during the week.

Discussion: What is your favorite complex you've ever played at?

BruceinGa made a good distinction that I had failed to make. Is it the complex or strictly the fields? I was thinking more along the lines of the fields. Disney has the best fields I've played on(in my humble opinion of course) but it's a massive place. I'm not certain senior tournaments are played there? Maybe another poster could shed some light on that.
As far as the best complex (fields and surrounding) I would say Huntsman games (St George) rates up there as does North Collier Park in Naples, FL.

Good question Oz! There are so many things that would go thru my mind that my wife and I would love to do. One thing I can predict is it would be a whole lot better counting money from ahead then behind!!
But the very FIRST thing I would do is pay off any lingering debts my wife and I have. I might just bank the rest of it and live off the interest.

Discussion: Where do you play during the winter month's?

Here in Michigan there are indoor leagues for young mans ball but no senior leagues that I'm aware of. There is a soccer dome where a bunch of senior players swing twice a week in the morning. There are also several indoor batting cage facilities where one can take swings.

Discussion: Double Force Out at the Plate

Craig, obviously the first runner, I'll call player A, is out. If the catcher had possession of the ball and maintained contact with the plate when the second runner, I'll call player B, crossed the commit line, player B is out. Hence, in your scenario both runners are out.

Fabe, my wife and I go to Clearwater every spring for vacation. Did you eat breakfast at Lenny's? It's the best breakfast in Clearwater. Did you go to Crabby Bills? Great spot to eat and party right across the street from Clearwater Beach.

Webbie that's true. Most who stay in top shape make it a priority to do as such. Whether it's done to play ball or just to feel and look better it's almost a kind of lifestyle. For those who don't but always say they need to start working out just getting in their car and driving to the gym is 3/4 of the battle.

Webbie sometimes my wife and I do the mini vacation thing as well. I played in Ft Myers in November and after we were done Sunday we drove up to Clearwater for 4 extra days--awesome!! I do agree with you about guys our age and older who do nothing. I ran into a guy I went to high school with and he looked way beyond his years. It's a tough world out there but I believe if one prioritizes some sort of physical activity, no matter what it is, it can't help but do them good.

Discussion: Status of the GSC bat

I suspect your right tattooball. I've encountered a few con men in the business world and they can certainly make things appear so good that it's hard to resist. The saying that "if it's too good to be true then it must not be true" (or something like that) applies.

Discussion: Status of the GSC bat

Tattooball I recall at the 2013 SSUSA worlds we (OKI) were handed a GSC senior bat for all of us to try out. I thought it was a great bat!! Shortly after the tournament I committed to be a rep for GSC. I was hoping to get a couple sample bats for players in my area to swing that would generate some sales and I'd make a little petty cash. I never got any sample bats. After the fifth or sixth time being told it would be several more weeks before I'd see a bat, I figured something was up--a revenue issue of some sort. I never suspected what was going on!! I didn't invest any money or anything but I feel awful for those who did.

Tattooball if what you say is true that's pretty wild!! The impression I get is that he was the ringleader. Whether she was a willing accomplice or duped I suspect she will turn on him and cooperate with the authorities in exchange for a lesser charge or possible immunity.
This case could take quite a time to resolve!!

Webbie, isn't it crazy all things we go out of our way to do, all the money we prioritize/spend and arrangements we make just to play softball??

Discussion: Status of the GSC bat

I'm no lawyer but years ago a family member owned a building whose main tenant was a law firm. I was hired to be the building manager and thru my time there I got to know all the attorneys pretty well. I sort of have an idea of how they think. After the preliminary hearings and depending on the evidence in this case (it sounds overwhelming) it wouldn't suprise me if one of the defense attorneys consults with the prosecuting attorney to try and cop a plea of some sort for their client in exchange for testifying against the other.

Discussion: During the summer season how do YOU spend your time on off weekends?

Oz, those carp don't want any of you!! Hope Santa was good to you and Madelyn. Summer weekends that I'm not playing senior ball usually find me umpiring USSSA tournaments. If not umpiring or playing my wife finds more than enough things for me to do. Never a dull moment.
