Re: The Official Softball Injury Log
This was asked and discussed earlier this year. Anything 300ft or shorter ought to use the plus. Yeah it bounces funny. But at least the pitchers have time to make a play on the ball, and if they are hit the impact isnít near what the m is. All the studies have proven such. If itís 60 d and below that m is almost like a stadium. Hell when itís super cold winter tournies we use the m over anything else. Itís more temp sensitive than any ball out. Now with all that being said, I watched the boarder battle, which was played in the stadium with the plus. Yeah people were pissed because they couldnít opp shoot, or slice that ball 350í ft like we see at every tourney. But you know what...The big guys still hit it out! The little guys still base hit it and got the job done. Look at the Smokey 2 years ago, playing with the stadium on the show field, the score were like 80/70! Last year they went with the classic m, scores were still in the 40/50ís. I mean thatís plenty lol! I still believe a hr ought to be earned but with the way the game has changed. I truly believe it is at a time where you canít go back because kids are too spoiled with the balls and bats.
