Scrimmage tonight.

League shifted some rules this year, dropping the arc from 6-10 to 3-10, going full USSSA.   Also made the basepaths 70 ft, which I don't care for.

I've run into this too.  Shaved bats, rolled bats, illegal bats re-painted.   People can be assholes.   The bats are too dangerous now.  We play USSSA, but limit the bats to ASA.

Taking a break this season for the first time in nearly ten years.  They started to suck me in last year.  Many of my teammates play four or five times a week.  I only officially played on one team, but they started asking me to play during the week.  Got a little out of hand.  It's a friggin religion.

We had a new guy join the team who is 48 years old.

He hit 2 balls over 370 ft, and one about 350.

These are legit, too.  We have a 300 ft fence with a fifty foot high net like the ones they use at golf driving ranges.  One of his shots went through the net about 10 feet from the top, so you could see where it landed.

Pretty impressive.

How rude!  There are over 40, over 50, over 60, etc. leagues.  Unreal how huge the sport is.  I never knew till I started playing.

I wish fast-pitch would've taken off.  Men's leagues are hard to find around here.

I know. 

Fun game.  I played in some mountain ball games (unlimited arc).  That's like trying to hit a curve ball.
