New SPA Rules
What do you think of the new rules for round robin?
1. Seven runs per inning in pool play
2.New run rule 25/3, 20/4, 15/5
3. Catchers can have a bushel basket for a glove

My only concern about "7" runs is that if there is a one hour time limit, we might not get in a full seven innings. I hate games in national tournaments that don't go the full seven. Under the glove rule, it says a gray glove is illegal. Some of the glove companies are offering a gray model this year.

We played the 7 run rule this past weekend, we had about 4 innings that we only had 1 out. I think it stops the Major teams just beating the lower divisions team with 10 to 15 run innings. We didn't play a full 7 inning game but the last inning you can score all you can after the umpire call the time limit, with the finish that inning and play one more. As far as in the National tournaments there is no time limit other than pool play the only thing that would stop a gameis the run rule. On the glove, Ridge told the group in Altanta that the pitcher could not wear a white or light color glove. He also said that the SPA would not rule against gloves from the companies only some that where homemade.
