Reggie4's, thanks. I was just going by the SSUSA list. I heard that Mike might move up but didn't know for sure.

Sixshooter, welcome to Indy. The competitive league starts this Thursday weather permitting. If you do Facebook, their site is Central IN Senior Softball Competitive. The park would not be your best source of information. Right now we do not have a 60 tournament team but do have 55. Most of those play in that league. I am aware of a 60 team trying to form in an eligible state depending on your player history. Please feel free to reach out to me if you want information on anything here. Our SSUSA qualifier is scheduled next month at Midwest. There is also some indoor hitting practice at the Sport Zone which is near Midwest. They hit and solve World problems.

Discussion: I'm sure I got it wrong---What would be the right call

Hi, B.J. I read the scenario as base coach. Then I saw Michael's comment and reread it and does not absolutely say that. As you indicated, a defensive coach would change the terminology and possible outcome. Hopefully all is well in sunny Florida.

Discussion: LVSSA

Dave, I was very involved in NSA when the 1 up rule was instituted. At the time we also had ASA, ISA, WASA, and Utrip in the area, and none of them had that rule. The first year everything was straight up. My state director and few others argued that it gave an unfair home team advantage. I tried to point out that was equal for both teams. They wanted to take away the 1 up for the home team in the last inning. I told them as a coach that if they did that I would always take visitor as the rule change gave them an advantage on homeruns. Of course they changed the rule the second year. That logic just isn't sound to you or me but is what they did.

Franjan, is the coach a base coach or a defensive coach?

Discussion: Ralph Adams

WOOD27, I was friends with Ralph for over 25 years. It is too bad that you did not get to meet him. He was a great guy. At least he was doing something that he loved when he passed. His visitation was tough, but a lot of our friends were there. The funeral was on Facebook live. There were quite a few amusing stories about him during that. His sense of humor was not quite as dry as my belated husband's (even Ralph talked to me many times about how he could blow you away with a "Really?"), but he was very intelligent and could crack a good joke. I miss my friend and talking with him, but I know that he is in a better place.

An umpire should yell "dead ball", not that this would help a batter distinguish. I agree with B.J., as usual.

The family just put out a much better obituary with his picture:

Discussion: Ray Ray has passed

Bruce, thank you for sharing this. My condolences to his family, friends, teammates, and softball framily. That is the only bad thing about Senior Softball is that our circle continues to get smaller. Just imagine the tournaments going on in Heaven though. I am glad that I got to see you this year again. Let's hope that we both have many more years with this life and game.

Ralphie's family asked that I post this from them:

If people would like to donate in lieu of flowers, they can make a donation to A Few Good Men Riverside. It’s a small community organization that provides mentoring and school supplies to children in the Riverside Community. If people would like to know more about the org, they can visit their Facebook page: A Few Good Men Riverside. To make a donation in my father’s honor, they can do so via Cash App with the following name: $2020FGM

Discussion: Ralph Adams

These responses made me smile because we affectionately called him Bat Man. He did love to trade. Until the end he wanted a bat that I was able to talk a bat representative out of that was never made in production. He also liked the bat that Kevin made and gave me that had a tribute to Coachie on it but knew that I would never give it up. I am guessing that there was a heck of a senior softball tournament in Heaven yesterday.

My heart is broken. We just lost Ralph Adams. He died doing something that he loved, hitting softballs with his friends at Riverside. I guess that Coachie must have needed a good first baseman on his roster. They loved each other dearly.

Discussion: The Moral of the Story

While this is not softball related, it is senior related. A friend of mine shared this with me, and I liked it enough to pass it on and hopefully get a smile or two:

A touching story of kindness........
I was in the drive-through this morning and the young lady behind me leaned on her horn, because I was taking too long to place my order.
“Take the high road,” I thought to myself.
So, when I got to the first window, I paid for her order along with my own. The cashier must have told her what I'd done, because as we moved up she leaned out her window and waved to me and mouthed "Thank you.", obviously embarrassed that I had repaid her rudeness with a kindness.

When I got to the second window, I showed them both receipts and took her food too. Now she has to go back to the end of the line and start all over.

Don't honk your horn at old people.

Discussion: Passing a preceding runner

B.J., I have only ever had this happen once to me, fortunately in league play and only the second out. The preceding runner stopped on 3B. The runner behind him hit the inside of the bad (instead of making the usual wide turn). I called him out. "I can't believe that you called me out." "I can't believe that you did not see a 250 pound man standing on 3B." The joys of softball. I hope that all is good for your bunch down there.

Spider9188, I do not. You would want to ask Amy as she is taking entries. I was hoping that with Shelbyville that we would have some older teams as a couple of the 75+ teams call it home.

You might look at the Florida Women's Half Century. Their Facebook page is Florida Women's Half-Century Softball League, Inc. Their regular web page is https://fwhcsl.com. I wish that we had more women playing overall.
