Discussion: HITTING THE MIDDLE

As a pitcher for Sweet Consruction 55, I believe that it is the pitchers responcibility to field their position. I know that if I make the plays the batters will stop hitting the middle. I am also a proponent of the 5 man infield which will influence the batters comfort zone.
I do not wear protective gear and feel that pitchers have that option and should use them. I am just slow to give in to protective gear such as a face mask.
I am totally against a screen and an out if hit by a batted ball.

Discussion: pitching defense

I pitch for the Sweet Construction 55 team and like the idea of pitching as far back as possible. I like the idea of 2' side by side.

I do not agree with the use of screens or pitcher being hit by batted ball rule. If you can't field don't pitch or use protective gear.

I have had a broken fibula three years ago and was nailed in the neck this year at the Atlantic Coast Championships. Both instance were my fault because I had a let down in my concentration.

I thought that teams could only go to Phoenix with players that played in a qualifying tournament. Teams can just pick up players?

Sweet Construction 55 is looking for a player or two to play in the ASA 55 AAA Nationals at Burlington NC labor day weekend. Could use an outfielder and infielder.

If I can't find two players are their any teams looking for two players to play in the ASA Nationals 55?

When I wrote vice-versa I want to know if a 55 year old playing on a 50 Major team could also play on a 55 AAA team.

Discussion: Playing accross levels

Rule 55

A player can only play on a team in the same skill level, or one skill level higher or lower.

Example: A player in a 55 Major Division cannot play on a 50 AA Division team.

My question is, can a 55 AAA player play on a 50 Major team and vice-versa.

I read it as though you can.

Discussion: TOURNAMENT OF CHAMPIONS 2008 - Roster Guidelines

It seems to me the T.O.C. should be held the same year teams qualify. Maybe it should be played before Winter Nationals so teams go in with the players they qualified with.

How does a team win a National Tournament, get moved up in a Division, except for Major Plus and then play down again with players that never played in the qualifying tournament?

Also, I see all these teams that won tournaments. I assume they are all moving up to the next level for 2008.

Joe, had to respond. I played ball with Joe Toth for many years and hated to see him leave NJ. I highly recommend him to any team that is looking for a softball whore. He can play and hit the long ball. Good luck Joe.

Discussion: Spring Nationals with TNT

I just wanted to say what a great time I had playing last weekend at the Spring Nationals with TNT Sports Club.
You are a class bunch of guy's and finishing 2nd with all our injuries was quite an accomplishment.
Hats off to Broward Bunch who won and to all the other teams that played against TNT.

Is there any 50 teams going to the Spring Nationals from NJ,PA,Del,NY that are looking for 2 players that have their airline tickets bought and want to play.
I tried soliciting players but struck out. I am a pitcher/outfielder and the other guy is a catcher 1b with high average and alot of power.

Discussion: New rule for the pitcher

I am a pitcher until this year have pretty much avoided injury. However this year at Glen Bernie I was hit by a batted ball that broke my leg putting me on the disabled list for almost two months.
I say hitting the middle is part of the game and if you can't stand the heat get out of the kitchen.

I needed to be in an athletic position and field my position.

Just my opinion.

Discussion: Phoenix 50 Major Plus

What happened to Motown 50Major Plus. I see that they played the bracket games and the East vs West but see no results in double elimination games.
I noticed guys that played with Motown in Manassas and Eastern Nationals were playing with Pine Knob out in Phoenix.
Anyone know ,or did they let them fold up and play with Pine Knob. Would not suprise me.
