Re: The Official Softball Injury Log
i was not complaining about the choice to hit the middle. i understand it is part of the game and usually the easiest way to get on base. i personally hit the pitcher hole for years and it works. the issue i have is when it is done on purpose with intent to retaliate and/or hurt the pitcher. and the point of this post was to bring more light to the issue of the bat, ball, and pitching rules. i really do believe something has to give. there have been a bunch of decent suggestions on this post. moving rubber back, changing ball, allowing pitchers to pitch from behind mound if they choose, actually allowing a 10 ft strike, etc. some of those would definitely lower number of players injured every weekend. giving the pitcher some advantages will help. right right now they are forced to throw meatballs and pray.
