Steve, You could have just asked me!! Yes runner is safe, once he crosses line if fielder tags him he is automatically safe.

Discussion: What's the call?

Calls like this are called incorrectly a lot. It is a foul ball always where the ball is located at touch never where the player is.

Discussion: Dont blame SSUSA for the ball problem.

The tattoo ball SPA and ISSA use are great balls. Not sure if these are the ones SSUSA will be using or not. The dud SPA ball was when they switched to a different Baden ball.

Discussion: 3rd Base Commitment line

If catcher moves off of mat to catch ball and brushes runner going home with body not glove with ball in it there should be a no call if runner tags safety mat or crosses scoring line before catcher tags plate runner is safe. If catcher brushed runner with glove with ball in it runner should be called safe. Other runner would stay at base attained before tag.

Discussion: Should I buy a new 'old' bat?

Currently there is no pass/fail measurement for senior bats. And as stated this rule only applies to USSSA. There probably won't be any compression standard set for senior bats anytime soon. And if there is you can assume all current senior bats will be grandfathered in for at least a couple of years.

Discussion: Outfielder runs thru centerfield fence gap and catches home run ball; home run or out?

Play should be ruled a Hr. If you would have made contact with ball before entering the gap area then it would be an out.

Discussion: Batter pops up, doesn't run; defense lets ball drop to get a double play. Legal?

grayhitter59 - Is there a rule listing for this in senior softball? It is the batters responsibility to run out the play. If he doesn't there is no reason to punish defense. This is a legal play as long as fielder doesn't touch ball in the process and just lets it land.

Discussion: What would've the call been?

Did the defense throw ball in and someone tag 2nd? If so you have out # 2 run from 3rd still scores 5th run so basically 1/2 inning over 5 runs for the hitting team.

Discussion: Running lane violation

I would think to get an better explanation of the rule you will need to put a scenario. As in all judgement calls the actual play needs to be listed for an accurate explanation, there are different scenarios that would have different answers.

Discussion: missed Infield fly call

alan - State infield fly rule should have been called. Put original base runners back on 1st and 2nd. Runners most likely would not have ran if called correctly and if they did run after ball being dropped defense would have most likely tagged runner instead of stepping on base for force. Always go with what would have most likely happened if rule was called correctly so as not to punish either team for missed call.

Discussion: Suncoast/Adidas bats

Dusty-3 I have a 27 oz. Suncoast balanced version. My review for now is limited as I am not taking full cuts as of yet I had rotator cuff repair on shoulder in August. I have took 15-20 light swings with mine with the wrapper still on and bat feels great. I will post more on it when I am able to take full swings. I believe performance is going to be top notch just concerned about how long it will last right now.

Discussion: Asa bats

Not sure what was brought up in vegas meeting, but the ASA bats are not hotter than SSUSA bats. The reason SSUSA won't allow them is because the aren't stamped with a BPF rating. That's the only reason you can't swing them in SSUSA events. These bats are lower than 1.20 BPF but aren't stamped as such.
