Thanks for the quick response. I guess with BLD as a reward we will go ahead and play Sunday.

Staff. We (55 Major) drew the short straw this year and got stuck at Shadow Rock. We all know the place is hard to get to, has only two usable fields and just generally is a poor venue. Why wouldn't you try and get Desert Breeze or even Doc Romeo an leave Shadow Rock off the rotation entirely?
I guess on a positive note biting the bullet now should mean we wont get stuck there in the Masters....................

Discussion: courtesy runners

Lumberjack, not a bad idea. I still would rather have limits on the number you can use. Makes a huge difference having a slow guy on base who can only go base to base versus a guy that goes 1st to 3rd and 2nd to home. I'm most definitely against having guys on a team that do nothing but run. That's just not how the game was meant to be played.

Discussion: courtesy runners

While I believe and have seen teams with guys that do nothing but courtesy run, I cannot imagine anyone wanting to do it. To much fun playing D and hitting.
As for me I would like to see a restriction of one runner per inning for the use of courtesy runners in the Major and Major Plus divisions in the 50 thru 60 and maybe 65 divisions. Seems to me if you are a Major or Major Plus player you should be able to run.

It's not good to leave anything in a freezing car Tim. Enjoy Bryce and Zion. See you Friday.

Discussion: Batting Average or On Base Percentage

Stick,
There are occasional instances when a solo is not a negative, maybe with 2 outs, or late in a game and there are plenty left, or when it is the 5th run but the reality is it's usually a negative. What team doesn't want to have some HR's available for the open inning so guys can just free swing. I'd rather leave one on the table than use them all up early in the game.

Discussion: Batting Average or On Base Percentage

I would like to see solo home runs that aren't the 5th run with two outs or game winners counted as outs in the book. Why reward selfish players with a hit when in fact their actions hurt the team.

Discussion: NECK FUSION

I had one in 2001. I was back playing again in about three months although I would say it took a year to regain the strength in my right arm. If I recall correctly. For me it was a great decision.

Discussion: Words of Wisdom

I'm not in favor of a screen or a PPR for tournament play. For league play either is fine.
Oh and Mad Dog. I got smoked by a line drive not a ground ball so having my chin down didn't help. :-)

Discussion: Words of Wisdom

I took one off the side of the head in Sacramento while playing the Warriors. I was wearing the Rip-It mask. Problem was I flinched and turned my head leaving the unprotected side of my head exposed. Left a nice lump but fortunately wasn't hurt bad. If I ever pitch again, and my wife says I won't, Imwould go for a full helmet design such as the Worth. I have also heard good things about the LaCross helmet.

Discussion: SCREENS IN TOURNAMENTS

I got drilled in the melon while pitching in Western Nationals in Sacramento and I am against using screens in Tournaments. I think it takes away from the game, and as previously stated, pitchers want to play defense. If your going to use a screen you may as well just put a pitching machine out there. JMO

Discussion: face masks

Mad Dog,
That's a good idea. All I know is you need something to cover the side of your head in case you flinch which is a distinct possibility when a ball is coming at your mug at 100 mph.
Thanks

Norq44, I also live in NV and only one league that uses Senior Bats requires a mask as far as I know. You don't need them for any others.

Discussion: face masks

I wore the RIP It mask and liked it until Sacramento when I took a line drive off the side of the head. I would recommend a helmet design such as the Worth or The lacrosse mask. I know I will have one before I take the bump again' that is if the wife lets me.

Could not agree more Dave. Would rather have one good tournament in Denver that drew a large number of teams.
