Re: The Official Softball Injury Log
I think the fear of losing more players nationwide is a main reason they're not changing. Right now Joe Schmoe who weighs 130 lbs gets to blow it out with all his friends. Everyone loves hitting good balls and feeling like an all star. Move to a 52/300 and softball gets a lot less fun for a lot of people. Their OBP goes from 600 to 350. All about money in the end which I get, just not at the expense of pitcher safety. Just my 2 cents at conversations they might be having behind closed doors.
Changing ball specs, bat specs, and moving the rubber back 5 ft solves a lot of problems.
