Discussion: Net for Pitchers

I think that we should go back to the 70s and play unlimited height if it hit behind the plate it was a strike that would give us pitchers a chance to get as far back as we wanted. I don't remember the middle being used as much because you could get back to second base before the ball was able to be hit most of the time. I know that the ball at first was not a lively as it is now and the bats were not that good also because I remember when I first started I used a wood bat it was not till worth and dave carrol and steel came out that changed the game till they went to the rf80s and that toned the game down again so we all want to be safe and where do we start and is there ever going to be an ending?

Discussion: Net for Pitchers

If you are going to use the net then you should have to stand behind the net till the ball either pass the pitcher and net. If a batted ball hits the net then call it a foul ball or dead ball strike. But if you are going to let the pitcher be a fielder then a batted ball that hits the net should be a fair ball and should be a playable ball off the net.

I should have put that he should not be able to field the middle of the field if the net is used except when the screen was hit by a batted ball.

I pitch for a 70s team if we are to use the net then the pitcher should not be able to field the ball. The net is put there to protect the pitcher so why should he be able to field the ball. If you are going to allow the pitcher to field the middle with the net then it should be a playable ball of the screen you should not be able to have it both ways with the net being a protective device and also a defensive device.

Like BJ said if the pitcher is able to play defense then why have the screen. But if he is able to play defense then a ball that hits the net should be a live ball. If the pitcher stays behind the screen for which it was intended for the the ball should be a foul ball and a strike.

I still think that if the screen is used that the pitcher should not be able to play defense as that is still adding to the defense and taking away from the offense and if he is playing defense the screen should be part of the field of play and not a defensive help.

Discussion: Net for Pitchers

I know that some leagues and one current organization is using the net. And I know that the rule is if you hit the net it is a foul ball and on third strike it is an out. My question is if the pitcher is outside of the net and the ball hits it why is it a foul ball because he is taking a place to play defense so why should the ball that hits the net not be a fair ball and be in play? The net is in place to protect the pitcher not to take away the chance for a hit even though I try not to hit the middle. If the ball goes foul off of the net then it would be a strike on third it would be an out. The catcher would be involved because if the ball hits net and bounces towards home he would be making plays also.

Discussion: Ratings

If a team has not submitted a roster in 3 years and the players are on another roster or not played in a tournament and since you have a player data base that should tell you what roster they are. Maybe I am thinking that it is simple to correct but it looks like the computer would be able to handle the correction by checking to roster of the team and where or if they are still playing and for what team.

Discussion: Ratings

Was looking at ratings and just curious why there were ratings all the way back to 2008 on ages. If they haven't played in recent tournaments or registered in the last couple of years why are they still on the ratings? I know that can't be that hard to change or correct.

Discussion: Wipe away front line of the box?

Sounds like you want another 2-3 feet to hit with which the pitcher already has a short distance to field the ball even adding the extra that they can go back from the pitching rubber. I am not saying that is what you do but others might do.

Why not make it easy for the umpire and the players any foul ball caught is an out.

Discussion: hof

If you are a HOF in any senior softball organization can you play AAA ball in any other organization I have not seen any ruling so I figured that I would ask and see what the answer is.

Steve it will be unusual not to see you at tournaments this year since your team folded. Always good to see you and talk with you. I knew that this tournament always helped sponsor your team so hope that you can work out something.
