Left-handed third basemen
What are your chances of defensive success if your third basemen is left-handed?

If you don't have a right hander that can reach first or can't catch a ball in the third base spot. After all it is senior softball. I'd try the guy out at 3rd. I have't seen any doubles from 3rd to 2nd to 1st by right handers since I've been in senior softball. Takes a good arm.

I think that at many levels of Senior Softball having an able-bodied player capable of playing the position trumps many of the old baseball/softball stereotypes. I played on a 65+AA team that won the SPA Nationals and finished second in the SSUSA Championships with a left-handed shortstop. It's more about making the routine plays well and consistently than it is about making the spectacular plays.
