Discussion: Excessive Speed

Again, im saying that the pitch hits the mat. Should there be a definite answer? The way I see it, if its a legal pitch for a strike, the umpire should never consider it more then moderate speed.

Discussion: Excessive Speed

The reason why im asking is because we have a Manager who also umpires in our league is saying that a pitcher who is 60 feet back and arcs a pitch between 6 to 7 feet and hits the mat can be called for excessive speed.
Maybe, I should have posted, what is the definition of excessive speed ???

Thats my point exactly. How can you call a legal pitch that hits the mat, excessive speed ????
Dave, I would like to hear your opinion.

Guppy: what more information do you need. Im under the impression that if a pitcher is 60 feet back and throws a strike and the ball is between 6 and 12 feet, it cant be called for excessive speed ????

thanks bkb555, it is between 50-60 foot distance. How can it be deemed flat if the umpire thinks its between 6 to 12 feet which is a legal pitch.
Im looking for a definite answer if possible ????

Guys: Maybe this will help. I also could not access updated pages using Google Chrome. I went in using the Internet Explorer Browser and was successful. WHY, I do not know.

Should 65 and over teams wait until April 1 or hearing from Senior Softball before sending payment. Tournament page notes March 26 for payment
Thanks,

Discussion: 65s to 1-1 or not 1-1

The 1&1 count kills wasted dead time, more action with less standing around. End result, more innings played.

Discussion: WINTER WORLD'S 65/70-Platinum Update

Steve: Thanks, you always been a class act!!! AS you know if you read my comments, I disagree with Omen playing with 11 players. You are just as good a hitting team as any 65 Major and you have more home run power hitters. It was a great tournament by all and the games were played within the rules.
Good luck and Omen is a class act and we are in awe watching you guys play.

Cowboys22: I appreciate your comments and if you watched Omen 70 team, I think you would agree that there not only a great hitting team, they are also a great Home Run hitting Team overpowering any 65 major team. We are in awe watching them hit. They were just unfortunate to lose one bracket game to early which forced them to win 5 games on Thursday. Again they out hit the Scorpions 5 home runs to zero in losing the one game they had to win.
In my opinion, if Omen did play with 10 defensive players, they still would have been the favorite to win the Tournament.

Dave: Now I understand why you did it differently. Your first answer in the prior post left me scratching my head with doubt.
About Omen playing with 10 defensive players, rumor was that they were willing to but SSUSA knocked it down.
