Discussion: Fair of foul, I need help

every call is either a judgment call or a rule interputation.
once it went by the bag in fair area it was his opninion that it was a fair ball and that is the judgment in the call.

Discussion: SSUSA survey

These type surveys also lets some companies decide on whether they want to set up booths at tournaments or offer discounts to the senior softball community. If they see enough numbers then the companies decide if this demograhic is large enough to offer discounst to their products.

I would bet that SSUSA would give your team enough to pay for the extra gas, if your team would give SSUSA the money your team saved on Motel Rooms. I would think SSUSA would come out ahead 3-4 hundred

Discussion: Pioneer park

Nickname I noticed that you play in the 50s not a far distance from young boy ball.
All young boy ball does is complain about fields, umpires and driving distance. Young boy ball wants the Motel at the back of the parking lot. Try Atlanta sometimes the field is 4 miles away but takes 45 minutes to get there because of traffic. Give me the drive from Mesquite to St George any day. Beautiful drive and you more than likely just saved abourt $120.00 on Motel rooms by staying in Meaquite

Discussion: Facing one batter

The most outlandish rule I ever seen was in 1979 ASA, think it only lasted for 1 year.
If the starting pitcher was replaced with another player he could not return to the mound, but if the second third or 4th pitcher was replaced they could go back to the pitching mound as many times as needed

So what we did was let a non pitcher pitch to the 1st batter then brought our number 1 pitcher in that way he could be replaced as many times as needed and go back to the mound.

Now ain't that something

Discussion: Suggestions for 2015

Staements like Brusters is why people think the seniors are bunch of spoiled babies. Dbax is right it is 50-50 regardless as to who calls it.
I thought I had heard of everything, but to complain over who calls the coin flip!!! that takes the cake.

Discussion: Legal/Illegal Use of Courtesy Runner?

Funny how they post USSSA rules and they do not even know the USSSA rule

page 42 2015 USSSA Rule book
L. When anyone other than another runner physically assists him while the ball
is in play.


It does not say touch it says assist.

Big difference in touch and assist

Discussion: Pitching

I would have to agree with Tim, IF the pitcher never got in the pitching box. By what you guys are saying if a pitcher is standing on second base after a Time out he could pitch from there. It would be illegal but the batter could swing at it if he wants to?

Lets put a little common sense in it, The pitcher should not have been allowd to pitch (Dead Ball) if he had never got into a legal pitching position. However I do agree on an illegal pitch if the batter swings it is all bets off, what happens happens.
The way it it described it should have been a no pitch.

Discussion: 1-1 count? Playing Devil's advocate

The one one count is better for the batter than you might think.
I pitch and I can almost gaurantee you that I am going to throw 1 waste pitch per batter with 4 balls to work with and sometimes 2

Discussion: Interference

Stick that is correct. Any interference by a runner that has already been putout( in this instance the runner was out on the tag then interferce occured) is a dead ball and the runner closet to home is called out. The dead ball occured a split second after the hit so the runner at second would have to stay on second and the batter-runner on first.

Discussion: USA Championship seeding game

That is why I hate tournaments that furnish the ball. You never know what you are going to have to hit. Especially late in the day when the balls have been hit 100s of times.
Let the TD state the type ball he is using and allow teams to hit thier own ball as long as it is the type the TD is using. If he has them to sell then so be it . I had ratehr spend 25 or 30 dollars on bals and get to hit decent ball.
at $5.00 each let each player pay for a ball that would give you 12-15 new balls to use for the weekend.

Discussion: Baserunner Retreating

Tim if that is the way it it writing in SSUSA that is good and it explains it well.

However just a small detail that is in other associations is the runners would go back to the last base touched at the time he steps backwards.

Knowing that 99% of the time the last base touched would be the base he was at at time of pitch

Scenerio

Fast Eddie on 3rd slow batter hits a slow dribbler down the first baseline first baseman deep

Fast Eddie takes off and scores before the 1st baseman picks up the ball and starts to tag the runner but he backs up.

Just wondering why you would penelize fast Eddie for an infraction after the score?

Just curious

Discussion: Baserunner Retreating

Home plate is the only base that you cannot retreat to.
In that situation batter out runner going to second is safe

Good explination Dave.

This is a timing play as long as the runner scored before the out

Discussion: You Make the Call

The one addition that I wish the associations would make is.
If the defense lets the fly ball drop intentional then the offensive team has the choice of which runner would be declared out.
That way if a slow runner was on first and a faster runner batting the offensive team could chose the runner on first out and the faster runner be placed on 1st.

That would stop a bunch of that silly crap

BJ
If runners on 1st and 3rd there would be no infield fly rule. Therefore if the SS let it drop it would stay live because the batter runner should be hustling to 1st but then the SS would have to touch 2nd base for the force out.

However I do undertand if the umpire thinks the SS is doing this to try and turn a double play he could call dead ball and call the batter out on and intentionally dropped ball
