Discussion: Why have the mat?

Years ago when playing with the Silverbacks, we were the visitors and scored 27 runs in the top of the all you could get inning. The team we were playing wasn't going to score 27 runs in the whole tournament.

If I had the power, I could've hit for the cycle in that inning.

19. Agreed. When I could pitch to certain spots back when, it was really beneficial. Now, the batters have most of the advantages with the "senior bats". You only have one zone you can pitch to for the most part.

You can even hit a crappy pitch for gapper. Played a lot of U-Trip with my sons team, it was really enjoyable, especially with the 1-1 count to speed up the game.

Discussion: Why have the mat?

I would like on an illegal pitch, if you swing at it due to it not being called promptly enough, the batter should have the option of a ball added to their total count or the results of the batted ball............something similar to catcher's obstruction in baseball.

In reality, the umpire has put the batter in jeopardy.

How did we ever survive without the mat.[sigh/eye roll]

Discussion: Tanel cleats

I like the New Balance turf shoes.

What I did last year have a custom pair made from Adidas on their shoe website. You can design them any way you want.

They weren't turf shoes, but they were very comfortable when playing all day at a tournament two days straight.

Discussion: Why have the mat?

The other thread got locked and for good reason. Too much bickering about a rule actually being "enforced". Go figure

Why and when did it become necessary that senior softball uses a mat?

Remembered the first time I pitched in senior ball. Nobody told me hitting the mat was a strike. I kept dropping it in the catcher's glove who had placed it on the ground right behind the mat. I couldn't understand why that wasn't getting called a strike.........they were perfect pitches before.

Any positive input will be much appreciated.

I think there is a 45+ team out of Saginaw. Not for sure.

Discussion: What's the call?

As long as the fielder doesn't guide the ball to the ground, or anything to intentionally drop it, it's nothing. Batter-runner needs to at least make the effort to run to first even if they think/know the ball will be caught.

Don't know if it is true or hearsay, but Mr. Parker hasn't been talked about in too high esteem lately.

Hope you had good weekend.

Discussion: Favorite Baseball Movie

Dear Nancy,

There always seems to be confusion between, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Jamie Leigh Curtis. No offense intended to women anywhere. Oddly enough, nobody has mentioned, "A League of Their Own".

ARE YOU CRYING? THERE'S NO CRYING BASEBALL!

On a side note, Anthony Perkins who portrayed Jimmy Pierall, was also in Psycho.

Met Jimmy in the mid-seventies when he was briefly a broadcaster with the Texas Rangers.

He and Billy Martin were here at the same time. They talked about the fight they had in the Yankees clubhouse...........wow! Billy Martin in a fight!

@Dbax ~ Well, I did play for a team named the Angels, and I did play in the outfield. But I somewhat digress.

The original "Angels in the Outfield" involved the Pittsburgh Pirates with the ex-wife of Tony Curtis, Janet Leigh.

The other was a Disney movie probably 20 years ago. Nothing like Tony Danza, and Danny Glover teaming up in a movie. Admittedly though, teaming with Mel Gibson would have made the film too bloody.

Discussion: Its suppose to be about players playing the game

@ bbullet ~ That guy doesn't need to be called back again. If he did as you say he did, both teams should have walked off the field.

@Nancy Allen ~ I umpired some good high school baseball here in Texas. Believe me, coaches do notice a good professional job.

They know we're not professionals, but they do appreciate your hustle, and I could be approached, but in the right manner.

You also have to realize that all coaches aren't as knowledgeable, so you sometimes have to help them along.

I've been to tournaments where only one umpire works the game. They are out there all day, and they don't get a break between innings.

If it were easy, more people would do it.

Discussion: Where can I post "bat for sale"

I do see several posts referring to hookups for bat reps on this site.

I posted about the new Dudley's [who sponsors on this site], and how good they were as a bat. It got deleted. Now about half the players I see at tournaments use them.

Go figure.

I agree they shouldn't be selling used equipment on this site unless they specify a message board section.

An update in software would be fantastic though.

BruceinGA,

I wish we would do that in our senior league in Richardson, TX. I play on a bad team, but I'm remaining loyal to the old guy that "tries" to manage it.

You can actually play for two teams with your original team as your primary team if both teams are playing at the same.

I kept bringing good players out to play with us, but that was only in vain as some better team would scope them out, and get them to quit, and change teams.

The league should require that you get a release from your original team, or sit out a minimum of one year if you don't like playing for the team who gave you a spot in the first place.

Our "league president" currently gets the privilege of scoping out new players who want to join the league by phone or email. If they are not to his satisfaction they get sent to an average team, or if they're a really poor player they get sent to the lower rung teams.

I admit I don't enjoy losing on a mostly regular basis, nor sometimes not even being competitive, but I don't understand some teams thinking the only way they can have fun is pounding on teams with much lesser skilled players. As is now you have 50/55 M & M+ players going against guys in their 70's or older

Competitive balance all through the league would make it much more enjoyable for me at least.
