FOFO, I for one have played at both Shadow Rock and Hollywood and prefer those to the short BLD fields.

Thanks Dave! Will the 80ís play at BLD if I pay the entry fee and food and beverage bill?😁 See you at BLD in a couple of weeks and will buy you a cold beverage for listening to my complaints!

Dave, Iím never going to miss my chance to complain about playing at BLD! 😁

I know that it is a tough job and you are never going to make everyone happy. Maybe make us play with those balls that were used in Reno that no one liked when playing on short fields.

Would putting the the 5 team 80 Majors at BLD (maybe the two 80 Major Plus teams too) and moving the 6 team 65/70 Major Plus games to Arroyo Grande work?

Seriously, the only thing I would have done differently, if BLD was the only option, is to put the Major Plus on the biggest fields. I think that Dodger stadium is the closest to regulation, so for Wednesday, I would swap the 70 AAA playing at Dodger with the 65/70 Major Plus on Crosley.

See you there, Dave.

Rock softballs/Small BLD fields/Major Plus teams on those fields...bad combination.

Discussion: Can a player run for another one twice in one inning?

Oh, and stick8, thanks for making BJ the CR/Sub runner rather than me! That scenario would never apply to me. After they put me into the game as a CR for the first player, my coach would have never seen me again to put me in as a sub for 2nd player! Plus, I am not sure that I would want to play for a coach that is so stupid to put me in to run once in an inning, let alone twice!

Stick8, I think you described it exactly like I interpret the rule but I see no reason why BJ cannot run as a CR in the 6th or 7th innings.

Here's my hypothetical situation.
Player A is not a starter in the game.
Player B gets a hit, and player A runs for him and ultimately scores.
Player C gets a hit in the same inning. Can player A be substituted into the game for Player C at that time and run for him?

You will have much better luck finding a team if you tell us where you live.

Discussion: Injuries

ccr fan: I had a partial right knee replacement 10 years ago (the outer part was not replaced) and that lasted for 7 years until the outer deteriorated and they took the partial out and put in a total. Then this past December I had the left one replaced. The first month or two of rehab can be painful, but I never have any problems with either one of them now.

How is the rest of your knee? I would consider getting a knee replacement instead of ACL reconstruction. In my case of 3 knee replacements, I was back playing in 5, 4, and 2 months respectively. The rehab will probably be shorter for a total knee replacement compared to ACL.

Discussion: Which Ball travels further: ASA or SSUSA

Webbie, no I didn't think you were being negative at all. All I was trying to say is that it was an inferior ball but not a total POS. It still traveled far when you hit it well.

Discussion: Which Ball travels further: ASA or SSUSA

Webbie that 22-7 loss was embarrassing! We just had one of those games, and it wasn't because we were hitting a lot of 290' fly balls that would have gone out with a better ball. That game and the 17-2 TW games were run rules and only went 5 innings.

My point is that the ball is not as good as the ball we usually play with, but it was not a complete POS.

I think it was my defense at 3rd, 2nd, and 1st that held the home run count down for Timberworks! :)

Webbie25, the 3rd day of a tournament, the scores tend to be a little lower. The second 15-12 game was just in the top of the 5th inning when the rains came, so that that game would have been higher scoring had it gone 7 full innings.

I went into this tournament expecting the balls to be bad based on others' comments, but I had no problems with them. I played in the 65 and 55 tournaments and played 14 games with 14 home runs. I didn't hit one ball that didn't go out that I thought would have with the Rock or the SSUSA Stote. I saw some very long home runs hit with this ball.

It may not be quite as good as the Rock or the normal SSUSA Stote, but it was by no means a bad ball.

Just my opinion.

Discussion: Total Knee Replacement.."A Softball Athlete's 3 month Video Diary" Sm 165

Webbie, get it done again if it is bothering you. I had a partial on my right knee 10 years ago (the outer part wasn't replaced) that lasted 7 years until I had the partial taken out and replaced with a total. I always had some pain and swelling after playing with the partial but never have had any problems with the total. Last December I had a total knee replacement for my left knee.

The rehab is a pain but I am glad that I have gone through this 3 times.

Discussion: Bifocal contacts

This doesn't exactly answer your question, but I wear bifocal contacts (in one eye) for everyday life, but when I play softball I have other contacts that are just single vision. I don't need to read when I am playing softball and I want to be able to see distance as well as possible when playing. My eyes are corrected to 20:15 with single vision lenses and just 20:25 with my multifocal lenses.

Full Count, there are no field designations yet for 2021, so how can you say that 2021 is in Carson City?
