Re: Time is passing you by, shoulda hung them up. don't get pissed when you get drilled
It is really shame the bats are so nuts because middle used to be an important part of the game mentally and physically. Used to be a ball went by the pitcher and if he got upset the next guy did the same thing until a play was made. Unfortunately the balls comes back at such ridiculous speeds and serious injury is ever present.
Years ago pitchers used talk smack without fear of life altering response. Old guys always say "it was better when I played", but I played a long time and it was a better game before plastic bats.
With that said, most "fights" on a softball are nothing than more a pussy footing push-a-thon. Nothing to see in most cases. The softball field is no place for violence...we all have to go to work after the game. (or most do)
