For tCOLUMBUS, Ohio — Amateur baseball and softball players in Ohio will once again be able to take the field starting May 26. But high-fives, water coolers, and spitting will be banned.

Umpires will have to call balls and strikes from as far back from the catcher as possible. Just about everyone will have to maintain their distance and bring a mask.


The Ohio Department of Health on Friday released a list of mandatory measures – as well as optional recommendations – for adult and youth baseball and softball leagues to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

While no league can have more lax rules than the ones listed below, Lt. Gov. Jon Husted said Thursday that local authorities have the power to impose more stringent health regulations.

Husted said that other “limited-contact” sports -- such as tennis and golf -- will also be permitted to resume on May 26, but so far the state health department has only released guidance for baseball and softball.

The new rules require that:

Everyone at the game – whether on the field or off – must stay at least six feet away from each other at all times, except for players on the field when the ball is in play and families watching together in the stands.
Coaches and umpires must wear face coverings at all times. The same goes for athletes, except when actively participating in the field of play. Masks are “strongly recommended” for spectators.
Game balls must be designated to each team for use while that team is playing defense.
Players must refrain from high-fives, handshakes, and any other physical contact with other players, coaches, umpires, and fans. Instead, the state health department recommends players tip their caps.
All equipment, including bats, gloves, and water bottles, should be used on only by their owner and kept separate from others’ gear. If equipment must be shared, proper sanitation should be administered between uses.
Water coolers and shared drinking stations are not allowed, nor is spitting or eating seeds, gum, and other similar products.
Coaches and players must conduct self-evaluations before each game. Anyone who has symptoms of illness must stay home.
Coaches must make sure players are following prevention measures, including keeping at least six feet away from other players on the bench.
Must avoid exchanging documents or equipment with players, coaches, or spectators. Umpires calling balls and strikes should allow adequate distance behind the catcher while still able to perform their duty.
Spectators cannot go on the field or in the bench area, and they must stay at least six feet away from the backstop.
Individuals should not congregate in common areas or parking lot following the event or practice, and should not exchange items.
Prior to competitive tournaments, event owners must alert the local health department about the event.
Game organizers must maintain a complete list of coaches, players, and employees present at each event, as well as record the date, beginning and ending time of the event, plus name, address, and phone contact to be made available upon request from local health district.

In addition to the mandatory health rules for baseball and softball games, the state also listed a number of recommendations, including having:

Lineups be submitted online or by spoken word, instead of exchanging lineup cards.
All team meetings be held online or over the phone, and conducting check-ins and registrations digitally.
Participants and fans travel to each game alone or with a member of their immediate household.
Athletes wash their hands or use hand sanitizer frequently during games.
During practices, coaches divide players into groups and establish rotating shifts when possible.
Umpires calling balls and strikes “allow adequate distance behind the catcher while still able to perform their duty.”hose who do not know how to copy & paste :

Our 65+ league plays 9 and uses a 3-2 count with 3 runs per inning and our games last about 1 hour 45 minutes.

Discussion: DUDLEY 2019 LIGHTNING HOTW

This sounds so much like the Reebok Barrage that came out in 2013, hot out of wrapper and breaking in less than 100 swings. Reebok refunded money or offered a second batch. Problem of early breakage was never solved and Reebok stopped producing bats with the Reebok name,changed bats to parent co. Adidas. Retailers dropped price on Barrage to $75/$80 to reduce stock and I took a chance and purchased one. After swinging Barrage went out and purchased 2 more(bat was smoking hot) but none of them made it passed 100 swings and no refund. Dudley had a good thing going but there latest offerings (Lift) and (HOTW) have brought there rating way down.

The bat must have a bpf stamp of 1.21 or lower, the new ASA bats do not have the bpf on them and are illegal. Older ASA bats with the 1.20 bpf on them are okay. USSSA bats have the 1.20 bpf on the thumb print. Click on Bat Policy above.

Discussion: DUDLEY 2019 LIGHTNING HOTW

Call me a cheap ass, but I will not pay over $170(Worth Wicked) for a no return bat. My gamer is still an OG Combat DaBomb purchased in '05 and ready for it's 14th season(no BP after 50 swings, Tournaments only). I own 18 Senior bats and have paid under $100 for the majority of them. I have only broken 6 bats in 13 years 3 Barrages(80 bucks a piece), Worth 454( Worth replaced under 200 swings), 2 Combat Centenarians($100 each ). IMO it is not worth the $100+ for an extra 10-20'. My purchases this offseason were a Wicked($100), TPS HyperZ 1pc ($79), and a Combat Maxum 1pc. ($50). In my 55+ Can-Am league the majority are swinging Adidas & Dudley with good results. I had a Dudley & Reebok ($145 ea) but sold both because I didn't care for the feel.

If I buy a Dudley from you(Elite Sports) and it prematurely breaks are you or Dudley going to replace bat or give me my money back. You really think these guys who are breaking bats are out to get Dudley. $200+ for a no warranty bat is robbery.

Discussion: Best bat-ball combinations

I have hit the 52/300 balls with bats from all associations and my senior bats still hit them the best. The difference is not as much as it used to be but there is still a difference. For me senior bats are about 10'-20' further than USSSA and 15'-25' ASA. My Border Battle Helmer, Freakzilla, Border Battle Legit, and Flipper USA all hang with my USSSA bats when hitting 52/300 balls. Good thing about hitting 52/300 balls with senior bats is the bats will last a lot longer, but if you hit newer ASA bats with 44/375 balls your bat will not last very long.
