Discussion: Run Through

Hey guys, so far mainly 50/55's have responded and I'd like to hear from 60/65's too.

to respond to a couple of comments;
1) can be as aggressive on base paths as you want with run thru without worry about sliding and collision.
2) normally have a three feet to either side of the base to run thru so don't have to go directly to base. Most experienced players know which side to run on. Normally with throw coming from right side of field one would go to the inside 3 foot line at 2nd base and so forth.
3) We use either the phantom tag or force out depending on the rule of the tournament so you don't have to woory about having arm bent/injured trying to tag a runner.
4) the 60's and 65's i know like the run thru rule.
Lets hear from some of them too.

"try it you'll like it"

Why doesn‚t SSUSA adopt the Run Thru Rule? Many of the CA tournaments have the Run Thru for safety reasons. Most of us do not want to risk injuring a leg, knee or ankle sliding nor do we want to pull muscles pulling up going into a base. Run Thru is a good way to avoid collisions at the bases. We observed a couple of collisions in the Reno qualifier this past week resulting from no Run Thru. Fortunately there were no injuries but∑ Will SSUSA Consider the Run Thru? Any others feel like we do; in favor of Run Thru?
