Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: AAA Home Run Outs

and if you went to bigger fields or open fields wouldnt that be worse than having home run limits.how many gap home runs would be hit and how many over the outfielders heads homers would be hit so actually wouldnt there be more homers hit that way than by having a fence.

oh not me im not good enough for people to pay to watch or play on a major team. as pricer said im old already and a punch and judie hitter so i couldnt help anyone that good.i just have me opinions on home run limits just like you do and actually i think the limits should start at age 60 the 50s and 55s should be able to hit more they are younger and stronger but thats my opinion so ill let it go.

Discussion: AAA Home Run Outs

home runs have always been part of softball,put teams on two fields one having unlimited homers and the other no homers and charge admission to watch and lets see which game most go watch.but hey if you guys ruin senior ball like you did regular ball with all these rules and limits theres always golf. oh is there a limit on how far you can hit one of those?

i agree that maybe 6o and overs dont hit more than 3 a game but 50s and 55s do.maybe every tournament should be open at first and then you get classified like in the old days.that way you do build your team around what you think you will be playing.the only problem is that there just arent that many major or major plus team in every area so therefor there arent that many major players to choose from.so an AAA team from a area that only has a few teams might have one or two guys that could play major but cant so because these two or three guys can hit it the whole team should be major. oh i know what everyone is going to say if they can hit then they can hit it down when the limits are up.man that sure takes the fun out of the game just like the crybabies did back in the 90s when the limits started. softball isnt baseball the game is and always has been about hitting

so okay have limits but make them more believable like AAA 6 homers or at least a walk after three.most guys at 50 to 55 can still hit them out and even if you are a great hitter like so many of you seem to be and can go backside and hit it down when you want three homers isnt anything.the rules that youre making dont go with the balls and bats we are using.alot of guys can hit 3oo ft line drives and they are trying to hit it down. you say change the bats and balls so if they do that would you go for unlimited homers then because i assure you that the guys that can hit them will still hit them and then what will you do to try to even the playing field

I like that softball4b having hitters instead of homers would definately be a better way to go.Guys that could hit them could still do so and base hitters could still do their thing.And they wouldnt be penalizing my kind of player im a base hitter with little power but i dont agree with home run rules.I think tournaments should be a two way format one side unlimited homers and the other no homers and unlimited arc ,i wonder which would have the most teams week in and week out

SO BASICALLY PENALIZE A GUY THAT MAY WORK ON IS GAME YEAR ROUND AND CAN STILL HIT BUT CANT TRAVEL OR THERE ARE NO MAJOR TEAMS IN HIS AREA SO HE PLAYS ON A LOCAL AAA TEAM.SORRY EVERYONE HAS THEIR OPINION ON THIS AND EVERYONE HAS A VALID POINT.MY OPINION IS THAT NO PLAYER SHOULD BE PENALIZED FOR WORKING ON HIS GAME AND BEING ABLE TO HIT.I WOULD RATHER SEE A BIG GUY CRANKING IT THEN WATCHING HIM FALL ON HIS BUTT TRYING TO HIT BACKSIDE JUST BECAUSE HIS TEAM HIT A WHOPPING THREE HOME RUNS.

Discussion: AAA Home Run Outs

I played on a class a team in the mid 80's and there were no limits we played major teams class b teams c teams and it was all you could hit and no one ever cried about it when they went to limits it first was a limit on hitters you could have so many home run hitters and then they were outs if anyone else hit them.3 homers are fine but it should be walks after not outs.in 1986 and 87 i played on a class a church team we played in every usssa tournament that we could , we played against steeles , howards, maroadi tranfer,smythe and got beat but it was fun one of the highlites of my career that i will always remember was playing bruce meades team ken michaels and i had hit three outand the fourth time they walked me intentionally. that doesnt sound like much but for a major team to walk a little church player was a big deal to me, that was when softball was fun you knew going in who was there and you either chose to play with them or you didnt

Discussion: AAA Home Run Outs

what is the difference if a team scores thirty runs with forty hits or scores thirty by hitting fifteen homers? the name of the game is to score more runs than the other team who cares how its done.if i build my team around power and you build yours with ten guys that base hit the heck out of the ball dont you think that on some days conditions will help either team. some days the wind could be blowing in and the base hitting team will win some days blowing out for the power team.thats the idea of sports you take your chances and just play your game .i loved the old days and the pitching idea of here it is im serving it up to you get yours because we are going to get ours

Doesnt anyone remember softball when it was in its best years, that was unlimited homers and play in whatever class you chose to play in, if you were to good for that class you got bumped up. i played in many tournaments where major and aa teams played class b and c teams and the b and c teams never cried about it.Then came the home run rules and in my opinion thats when things stared going down hill the bats getting juiced up and so forth.And i know bats were juiced back in the good old days to but who cared you hit em or you didnt.Now senior ball is going the same way everyone is crying about home runs,why do players want to penalize people that work hard on their game and can still hit them out.Maybe there are no major teams in their area or they dont want to travel all the time just to play.Home runs should never be outs after the limit is reached.Noone should be penalized for still being able to hit

Discussion: Phoenix

i understand that a bigger stronger person will swing harder and have more bat speed but what effect does this have on a two piece bat.i know they will flex more but is this a good or bad thing?and what type of bat should a person with alot of bat speed use a two piece or one piece?

As a senior player it would be nice to see the rosters of the major teams in the 50s and 60s brackets just to see who plays on each team and to see what older superstars are still in the game

Discussion: REEBOK vs. MIKEN

This year i have broken one reebok senior bat and two miken maxload ultra 2s, i sent the reebok back to their office and got a new replacement within two weeks no questions asked. I had maybe thirty hits on the bat.I sent the miken back with also thirty swings on it and they sent it back to me saying it was a no warranty bat. I guess thats why so many people are switching to reebok.Im done with mikens it will be reeboks and maybe the new demarini the one.And i do understand miken did not have to replace the bat as it is a no warranty bat but so was the reebok. So big thanks to reebok for taking care of customers first

Discussion: Miken Ultra II balanced and end load.

I just got a red ultra 2 maxload with the 1.21 stamp and have had no problems with it.It seems to hit as good as any of the other red ultras ive had in the past.also have a new reebok senior melee and my first swing out of the wrapper was a home run.My opinion on the two bats and its just my opinion is that they are pretty equal but it seems that the u-2 has a bigger sweet spot.Has anyone hit the new demarini i heard that it was hot.

Discussion: softballs

so mad dog are you saying there isnt much difference between the 44/375 and the 52/275? does the 52 stay as hard as the 44 over the length of a game.and are you saying that it doesnt matter if its hot and humid the 52 doesnt change?
