Discussion: Midwest Championships Rogers, AR

What about moving the Midwest Championship to St. Louis...you cant bet closer to the MIDWEST than St. Louis. Seriously, I think it would be a great draw for the great Midwest. I am sure that they will have the facilities to support 75+ teams. Just a thought.

Discussion: Runner struck by batted ball while on base in fair territory

If a baserunner is hit by a fair batted ball while standing on a base, the runner is out, unless the ball has already passed an infielder or the infield fly rule has been declared.

Discussion: Senior League Play with Pitcher using a SCREEN

We have a league here in Fountain Hills Arizona. We have NOT established firm pitching rules concerning the pitching screen. I would like feedback concerning the following. Do other Senior Leagues allow the pitcher to 1). place the screen 3-4 ft' in front of the pitching rubber
2). then go back the legal distance and width (2' wide by 10' deep
3). then pitch DIRECTLY over the TOP OF THE SCREEN?

We currently have that situation and it is distracting to some/most hitters seeing the ball over the top of our 7ft screen. Seems to me that the purpose of the screen is to protect the pitcher, not hinder the hitters. In several leagues I have played in (Florida Half Century, Brandon, Florida, to name a few) the pitcher is required to place the screen 3-4 ft. in front of the screen...moving it to the middle left for a right handed pitcher, and middle right for a left handed pitcher. Once the ball is released, the pitcher should then move behind the screen to avoid any contact.

OK...I would appreciate any input from other senior leagues on how they handle the pitching screen. Thank you for your time and consideration...The Great and Powerful OZ..
