LP...unlike other assoc., USSSA pitchers have a larger chance to have an impact with their pitches. They still have corners to pitch too, and can vary speed moderately. A catcher can actually catch a pitch and it still may be a strike.
Personally, I dislike the mat, eliminates the "corners", just seems to give the hitters another advantage in a hitters game.
I played USSSA in New England for many years and found it the most enjoyable slo-pitch experience. Thanks.....

I have been watching the boards for a number of months now regarding the HR and PPR rules. I don't think there needs to be a homerun rule at all, and although I don't like the PPR there may be a need for something? but what?
One thing I can't wrap my mind around is how the HR rule has anything to do with players hitting up the middle.
A number of great hitters I know that don't hit homers hit the middle consistently because of the way the defense is positioned, thats where the acreage is, if the SS or 2nd base shade the middle, then the hole is somewhere else.
Personaly, I have always been a middle hitter, not much HR power, occasional at best. I also pitch and when I began playing senior ball I didn't hit the middle respecting the age of the guys I was playing against. However, after a couple of months spent bobbing and weaving I had had enough of that crap and went back to my original swing and started going middle. I kinda agree, if you want to pitch, be prepared, either athletically or wear protection.
I have seen players purposely try to hit the pitcher and this is more common than some think, maybe more so with the younger guys. Just listen at the tournaments, complaints about pitching too high, too low, too fast.....if a pitcher gets them a little off their game...we'll get this guy....geez, got carried away, just some thoughts, Thanks
