Discussion: Sunglasses for Softball

Alan,

I got them to release. Just had to work a little bit with the nose piece to make the lens pop. I didn't want to risk breaking them.

Had a great time in Florida. Just wish I hadn't been hurting so bad with my back and knee. Guess that's what driving 20 hours will do you. Next time I won't stand up for an hour before we start. That plays havoc with me too.

I'm going to do some rehab sessions on my shoulder to strengthen it back up. Too much abuse from working at the post office took its toll. Had it cleaned out 10 years ago. A little cortisone from time to time usually helps.

Hopefully, I will attend some other time and will be more familiar with where I'm going and ways to get there. I will remember to put sunscreen on my face next also.

Your staff was great and the weather was wonderful.

To anybody interested, this was nice little softball vacation getaway.

Alan,

I can get the lenses to start to pop out, but the rest of the lense appears to stuck in the frame. Where do I go from there?

Discussion: How is this scored #2

Didn't know that the phrase "B returns to bat" to be so confusing?

It is really more accurate to say fair/foul pole. A foul ball and foul tip are two different things. The ball isn't dead, playing action is stopped. The umpire doesn't call the next batter to the plate. He is not the coach. There is no stealing in slowpitch unless you're playing USSSA. It isn't the stretch position, it is the set position.....etc.

If anybody wants clarification on scoring rules, rule 10 in the OBR (Official Baseball Rules) which is what MLB subscribes to is good to reference. They ae online at www.mlb.com

BOO [batting out of order] ~ Umpire ALWAYS has official lineup card.

The player must finish the at-bat to appeal a BOO.

Appeal during the AB, the team can send proper hitter to the plate.

You always move down in the order to correct a BOO, never up. [best rule of thumb ever]


Scenario~B leads off game with a hit. After a proper appeal, B is declared out and returns to bat again. B leads off the game with a fly out. After a proper appeal, B returns to bat with one out.

Scenario~C makes the last out of an inning and F leads off next inning. After a proper appeal, G is the next batter. D & E are skipped this time around.

BTW ~ Infield fly is called to protect the runners. Best rule of thumb there.

I bought a pair. I like them. They also come in a convenient carrying case to stuff in your bag. Can't beat the price for what you get.

The frames can be tricky so be careful.

Discussion: bat rolling

While on the subject of a lifetime ban. I do believe somebody switched out their bat with mine, or they just accidentally grabbed the wrong bat, but the one I left with sure hit better than the one I brought. It had probably been shaved. It did last a long time, though, so who know for sure?

Personally, I don't think it is worth $25.00.

Frank,

I can get you all the polarized safety glasses you want in a couple of weeks. About ten bucks per pair. Works great for me, and don't cost a ton of money if you scratch them up. I've worn them for a long time. They're great for driving also.

ju25,

I sent your list of the newly banned bats to the league president. They banned each of the Easton bats. They didn't really have much choice.

Probably gonna be some unhappy campers.

It wouldn't be so bad if they didn't piss and moan about which way the runner ran in relation as to where the thrown came from. They are like plays at first and home. All you have to do is catch the ball while touching the base.

Discussion: Texas AA Team Seeking Pitcher and Outfielder

I never got that message JBTexas, but I'm headed to Florida on the following Wednesday. Don't want to drive to SAT for one day, down to FLA for a week, and back down to AUS for one day.

Anyway, I've spent too much money lately as I finally decided to have the engine bearings my 69 Mach I fixed.

Mad Dog,

We have run through bases and use 11 fielders. Some of those guys are so brittle, I'm sure one of them would faint if a ball off a senior bat came buzzing past them.

Discussion: Batting Average or On Base Percentage

Softball might be better using OPS: the sum of a player’s on-base percentage and their slugging percentage.

I would measure OBP much differently in softball for sure.

Discussion: Batting Average or On Base Percentage

Bruce,

They were by far the oldest and the slowest on the team!

We could score runs in bunches, but our defense was lacking most of the time. The big hitters at the top were usually hitting with no one on base as they either went yard or had deep fly outs. Didn't make sense then to bunch them all up at 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6. Left for some open innings.

I just didn't like being left on base all the time when I could motor on the bases. At least, a long fly out could move a runner over into scoring position on a base hit.

OTOH~ I've been on a team where I was the offense. Knock in three runs and scoring two.
