Discussion: batter's box

fred.....don't even bother explaining.....as most of these pitchers on here just chuck it toward the plate with no regard as to where they want it to hit......just hoping they hit the mat...i play mens open age here(no mat..call strike)also....and getting the ump to enforce the ASA rule that they be completely inside the box before i can pitch is almost impossible...and please don't show them the rule as then they become all butthurt that you know more then they do......and the one i love from the ump.."i'm not gonna enforce that rule".....or the lines are not there anymore......wow ......

Discussion: batter's box

#19....ASA is that before the pitcher can pitch....the batter must be completely inside the box...no heels out or such as when actually hitting the ball....why they do it this way is beyond me....and also try and get an ump to enforce it.......yeah right.....i think usssa is the same.....not sure why senior softball is different......

Discussion: Foul tip caught by catcher

rule book wrong......???????......ASA it is anything but a straight back to the catcher directly....is considered a foul out if caught....it was basically fashion after the fastpitch rule.....also it eliminates the over the head rule.....

Discussion: illegally batted ball

yes robbie....as long as the swing is full.....doesn't matter how fast they swing.....there is no rule on how fast you need to swing....just no half or bunt style swings.....and i'll tell ya....those guys who can change their swing speed are very hard to defense....

larry your right about the swing speed......it just has to be a full swing....cuda....he most likely should of been called out for his half swing.......and the ump should be calling it as soon as it happens.......now if he is just swinging slowly...that is good to go....i will slow swing to go opposite field for the dump hit.....i just have to make sure it is full....

randall....if the ball DOES NOT go straight back to the catcher...it can be considered just the same as a pop-up......and is considered an out......doesn't matter if it does bounce off the catcher or if it is 1st,2nd strike....it will still be an out...just can't hit the ground.......

swing it is more likely dogs as coyotes will eat the cats....dogs will just kill them and leave them...coyotes think they are a delicacy....like the OP said her cats are found dead the next morning in the yard.......thats more like dogs......i'm constantly running dogs off my place....use my judge and #6 bird shot to the buttocks to chase them off......

FOFO...that is the reason i wear a coaches helmet when pitching....it protects the side of my head also.......not as full covered as the worth or the other catchers style helmets....

also seem to be able to keep my chin down for ground balls...played the inf my whole life so it comes naturally for me.....don't turn...

webbie the rip-it to me is the best one....all the other's in my opinion...block off the feet area from view.....i wear it whenever on the infield or pitching....when pitching i also add a batter's helmet the style they used to coach the bases with......and wear it backwards like a catcher does...

bubblegum...there is no difference in the bpf number.....the 1.20 uses a 47 c.o.r. ball.....and the 1.21 uses the 44/375 ball for testing......

dave look at google earth......you will see a border line running thru lake michigan.....with Wisconsin,Illinois and Michigan touching all at one point across from kensoha,Wisconsin....so to me that makes Illinois touching Michigan.....

Discussion: Double Force Out at the Plate

call apply's to both once the second runner has gone past the commitment line....doesn't matter if the plate is touched accidentally or not....just needs to be touched....so when the catcher was still on the plate when said 2nd runner passed the comit line...he should be out....

now if the second runner hadn't made the comit line and the catcher comes off the plate....than the catcher needs to go back and touch the plate before 2nd runner scores....

i see it this way....if you can buy a fishing license in Illinois to fish lake michigan...than there are borders touching....just like here in texas with lakes that border Louisiana...Oklahoma....otherwise one state would control the lake with its parks and wildlife ......again just stating what seem to be logical.....the example you give dave would also include the rest of the world...that is an outside border and not an inside the country border....

mmm are you sure dave.....since they both touching lake michigan...there will be a border there in the lake someplace......hence they be touching......


also there is vt and ct touching new york......so basically the whole area somewhere touches new york except new hamp and maine anyways...so why not let them draw from the whole area.....how many players in maine and hew hamp to begin with.....really......

Discussion: FACE MASK

TM44...i have been wearing a mask for the last 4 yrs now....i started with the worth helmet for pitching...that lasted about 5 games..for pitching......and the rip-it for the infield...i than started using the rip-it all the time....than saw a guy using the coaches helmet..wearing it like a catcher does.....yes that worth mask is nice and such...but to hot here in texas for me....finally sold it beginning of last yr.....have fun this yr and good luck.......stay safe...

Discussion: FACE MASK

TM44...i had one of those to start with and didn't like it as my vision was hampered...specially down at my feet.....it also was not conducive to warm weather wear......its the reason i wear a rip-it mask and coaches helmet when pitching...covers the head and face and i can still see pretty good...no blind spots like the worth mask..and ventilation is way better than the worth.....

i use a ripit mask for best vision when fielding..(metal only for me)....when playing the infield...and add a coaches helmet when pitching..just put it on like a catcher would.....get a helmet with some good ventilation on the top......
