  1. A man who smells flowers and looks around for a coffin is a cynic.
  2. What I posted was LL Softball Rule 7.06, NOT Baseball. . . hummm, "a community-based program FOR kids" . . . It's a "World Wide community". What's the cut-off age for the "KIDS" in the other orgs?? . . . think about it. PS, You can get LL Softball & Baseball Rule info @: https://www.littleleague.org/ . . . if you're interested in gaining more knowledge. :-)
  3. MiB said: “First thing, none of your major softball orgs (USA, USSSA, PGF, NFHS, or NCAA) have any “automatic advancement” award. . . " Well here’s my .02: IMHO, Little League Softball should be INCLUDED in the “major softball orgs”. LL has age groups same as the others and also has a World Series. aaluck quoted Rule: 7.06 When obstruction occurs, the umpire shall call or signal "Obstruction." which is verbatim with the addition to section (b) added to LL 7.06 (a) If a play is being made on the obstructed runner, or if the batter runner is obstructed before he touches first base, the ball is dead and all runners shall advance, without liability to be put out, to the bases they would have reached, in the umpire's judgment, if there had been no obstruction. The obstructed runner shall be awarded at least one base beyond the base he had last legally touched before the obstruction. :-)
  4. Most people don't understand, or know, the difference between a Right and a Privilege. If they spent more time digging up facts instead of jumping to conclusions, they'd get better exercise.
  5. Personally, I think that each of us should depend on our "gut feeling" for our own safety. I damn sure am not about to rely on someone else saying it's safer now eg. LL, Local, State, or Fed Govt or anyone else. They're not the ones that will pay the penalty if they're wrong. . . . once again, "You don't grow old by being a fool"
  6. FWIW, Honig's, used to do the MLB Uniform shirts and plate coats patches. I'm not sure if they still do. Anyway these placement diagrams and patch colors and sizes are correct to the best of my knowledge for MLB. Blk / white on all black shirts, coats, and jackets. Blue on blue shirts. Hope this helps. :-)
  7. Food for thought: For all of you, young and old alike, lamenting this year's temporary loss of sports, senior proms, partying, and other activities due to this crisis, I can safely guarantee if you're lucky enough to grow older, you most likely will experience many more disappointments in your lives. It's part of life folks. SJA :-(
  8. Well TMiB, a few straight snorts of this should fix ya up . . . if'n it doesn't kill ya HA!
  9. I think we all need some cheering up! . . . so, just sing along and follow the bouncing ball! :-)
  10. Sure do, . . . and damn glad I'm an "old schooler!
  11. 50 > 60 year old cartoons are the best! . . . not like the crap of today :-(
  12. For those of you who know who this is, no need to worry until . . .
  13. There are some positive remarks on the FB Umplife site.
  14. Thought I'd post this app site for info. : https://www.baseballrulesinblackandwhite.com/
  15. No WM, I had it done just before TW stopped doing it.
