Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Batter Box Rule

what i want to know,why is it that your punishing a batter who can keep both feet in the box,regardless of where you end up in the box.....always thought ya keep both feet in and your supposedly safe...but now if you go ahead of the plate with your back foot ,regardless if you stay completely inside the box,your gonna be out.........sounds like a bunch of bullcrap to me.....

Discussion: What's the rile

STAFF,so your telling me i can get 4 strikes for an at bat....and by the way my thoughts aren't just for MLB,they are for all baseball or softball...so i can be at bat,have 2 strikes on me and foul tip it straight back to the catcher and he catches it and it doesn't count as an out.....is it the same if i miss the pitch with my swing.....also you have actually proved my point with your 1.29 foul tip rule.......i'm not trying to tell you what a foul tip is just that if caught when a batter has 2 strikes on them they are out.....just like you have stated.

i don't care how many fouls you have to give MLB has unlimited,"AS LONG AS THE BALL IS NOT CAUGHT"....but they are called out on a foul tips back to the catcher that is caught....what you people are saying he should be safe and allowed to still hit.....it doesn't work that way.....once you get 2 strikes on you any foul ball caught (including one straight back to the catcher,aka foul tip,) will be your third strike regardless of how many fouls to give...and you should be declared out....now if the ball hits the ground you get your extra foul.......so please show how a caught third strike is not an out in any play.......

BJ,for one donna is wrong......any ball caught when a batter has 2 strikes on them (fair,foul or just tipped straight back to the catcher)is considered an out.....why b/c the batter had 2 strikes on them and swung and it was caught.....it doesn't matter who caught it or how hi it went.....

first off what is a rile.......LOL..so once a batter has 2 strikes (regardless if there is an foul to give rule)and they swing and foul off the ball and it is caught,that's the third strike and the batter is out regardless of who caught the ball or how hi it goes.....straight basic ball....bada-boom,bada-bing......

Discussion: Batter out of the box

so lets take away a pitcher can pitch if the batter can't hit it......ya want the height lower,ya want to be able to run out to the mound to hit it,are there any rules that a batter should follow.......batters have rocket launchers in there hands quit bitching,so many damn babies out there......

Discussion: Pitchers mask

when i pitched i used a baseball coaches helmet (wear the helmet backwards like a catcher) in conjunction with a rip-it/champ-pro style face-mask.....i also have seen the softball batter's helmets with cages on with also a catchers throat guard .....both have great vision......

Discussion: You make the call

big question......if you have players who have not entered the game....why can't they be subed in before they go to the field and be that runner when they come back into bat if they are in the runners spot in the lineup.....

Discussion: ssusa rule 7.6

i look at it this way....if the ball makes it to a infielder and a play can be made or into the outfield he has swung enough.....what about the guy who takes the hr swing and tops it and it bounces way up and is able to beat it out easily.....

Discussion: Pitchers Face Mask

i used the rip-it face mask with a batters helmet and wear it like a catcher .....(hey only time ya get to wear a hat backwards...LOL)....have real good vision and protects the top of the head when using just a fielder mask..

Discussion: Clear plastic facemasks

i used a ripit or champro adult fielding mask along with the base coaches/catchers helmet.....wear the helmet like catchers do(protects top and side)with the mask.....the metal masks have much greater view than any of the others to me....

Discussion: Dudley ZN 52/300 ball

what problem with senior bats with this ball.....aren't they the hottest bats around...by the way senior bats are just bats that are made at the old ASA constraints.....we have been playing with the 52 ball for at least 5 yrs now in both our open and senior league's....the hr hitters still hit their hr's....so what is the problem....oh they don't go 400' ...oh well....fences are basically 300'.....we use the tattoo ball....
