Discussion: pitchers shin guards

catchers type are the best overall protection, covers knee cap and top of foot. They are a bit pricey, but I got mine at Play It Again Sports for $25 used. The are not too restrictive either

400, I chose to gear up, instead of risking serious injury or death. Even with the gear, I can still field my position right up there with the better players

Discussion: Rolling Bat Bags

I'm in the market for a new bat bag. I pitch and have a helmet, catchers shin guards. I also have two gloves and two bats plus two pairs of shoes. My prioritys are durability, storage capacity and color choices. Looking for feedback/recomendations. Thanks,

Discussion: Boombah Turf shoes

I agree with Omar, Tanel turf are much more comfortable than Boombah, plus more durable. I bought some Boombahs for the 2012 season and after about 80 games they started to fall apart. I bought Tanel's turfs for the 2013 season and wear them only in tournaments, about 80-90 games and they show some cleat wear, but other than that they look as if new. I rotate my shoes out every year, buy a new pair for tournaments and rotate last years tournament shoes for league play. I wear the turf shoes on dirt and have no problems with grip, even on fields that are like cement. I pitch so it is pretty hard on shoes as you are always taking some steps back and setting yourself.

Discussion: Good umpires / bad umpires

I have played against Tommy and he also does umpire NCSSA tournaments. He works tournaments that I run as well. A professional through and through.

Discussion: Good umpires / bad umpires

I would say my first characteristic would be good knowledge of the rules, second, an umpire that hustles and gets themselves in a good position to see the play and make their call and stay with the play until time is called. Finally, one that if approached in a civil manner, is willing to explain the reason for their ruling without being condenscending and telling the player/manager to shut up and play.

Discussion: sick players at Sunset Park

Marv,
Nothing wrong with providing water for teams at tournaments, but never out of the community drum. I spend a few extra dollars to buy the small bottles (under 8oz) and the players love them

Discussion: Flip Flop Rule

We did use the international tie breaker, but was curious as to whether the flip flop would revert back to original home/visitor

Discussion: Flip Flop Rule

I have a question regarding the Flip Flop Rule. When the visiting team becomes the home team, and the game is then tied after regulation, do the teams flip back, or does the visiting team remain the home team for the balance of the game. This happened in our league playoffs and they flipped back. I looked at the rule and it is not covered. Any thoughts? What is SSUSA's take on this?

Discussion: When is the last time you saw a pitcher have to leave a game from getting hit or get seriously hurt?

I've pitched for 40 years and have only been knocked out of a game twice (knock on wood), both line drives to my backhand side that hit me in the wrist. It wasn't that I couldn't pitch, it was hitting. I could get a good grip with my bottom had.

Omar, yes we are crazy!

Discussion: scoring of runs with new COURTESY RUNNER RULE 8.5(5)

I think the intent of the rule is that when the appeal is made, the illegal runner is called out from the point that they became illegal. In the first scenario, the runner became illegal prior to the runs scoring, so no runs would score since there were 2 outs when the runner became illegal. In the second scenario, only the illegal runner would be called out, assuming there were no outs or 1 out. The same would apply to scenario three. Although I tried to pull up the rule in the on-line rule book, due to the lovely advertising bar that was recently put in, you can't access it. So my answer is based on the assumption of the intent of the rule

Discussion: Pitchers Mask or Helmet Mask Combo

mad dog, That is why I changed over. Also, because the natural tendency, at least for me is to turn your head and duck when a ball is smoked at my head. A facemask alone offers no protection in that scenario

Discussion: Pitchers Mask or Helmet Mask Combo

I've used the Gameface mask for the last several years. It was comfortable but lacked a bill to keep the sun out of your eyes. Also, when ground balls were hit up the middle, I would lose the ball a few feet in front of me. I recently switched to a Worth batting helmet with metal face guard. I worried that it might be too heavy and hot. It is not heavy and I have better vision than I did before. It is warmer, but wearing a skull cap made of technical (wicking) material helps keep the sweat down to a minimum.

Discussion: NCSSA Championships kudos

This is one of the top NorCal tournaments. John does a good job as always. I may be wrong but the open division was promoted by local teams and did a lot of ground work to make it happen, more of an invitational. May if someone in SoCal made the effort to put something together it would happen.
