    The Health Commissioner in Montgomery Co. seems to be on an out-of-control power trip of sorts by taking his interpretation of the regulations completely out of context at times. He's the one that ordered the drive by parades for kids birthdays...

    i dont let sign stealing bother me at all because the bottom line is you still have to execute the play regardless of thinking you know the sign or not. "That's right coach! She's bunting and we are stealing the next pitch" - beat us. ;)

    Thank you for the clarity. Another major obstacle that will hinder summer play that slipped my mind. I had heard thru the gossip line that Logan County, that area in general, were struggling with working games or not. The change in the face...

    That wasn't the case at all, it was cuz of the umpire shortage, not becuz of COVID 19

  5. daboss liked Rerun's post in the thread What’s The Ohio State fair cancelation mean for Softball venues?.

    I would believe so the fair make a lot more revenue then Berliner for the city of Columbus. But I believe the main reason the fair shut down is because of all the vendors that handle food. I mean think about it do you want to be in legal trouble...

    I am not a member of the organization but aware of those affiliated with West Liberty Force. I recently read an update regarding an upcoming tourney they host stating that the older age groups would indeed be playing as scheduled but they are...

  7. daboss liked Mike_Craig_-_Ohio USSSA's post in the thread Venue/Facility Requirements to host??.

    I can only speak for the places that I normally run at or my directors run from. Some of the issues right now are: 1. Some do not want to be the first to start. Uncertainty on whether the Health Dept. will be camped out at your venue or park all...

    Mike Craig, thank you for your post. As you mentioned, those are only 4 topics of concerns out of many for why so many issues are forcing tournaments to cancel this year. Again, this could be a non-issue in 2021. Your simply going to need to...

  9. daboss replied to the thread Undermining your softball program, who’s at fault?.

    Bad eggs come in all sizes, all colors, and are hard to tell at times if the shell isn't already cracked. Problem coaches and problem parents deserve each other. Some times the kids are collateral damage but most of the time they are simply an...

  11. daboss liked SonicMojo's post in the thread How the State Guidelines Came About.

    We have to keep the pressure on the schools to open for sure. There are still some ADs around Ohio clinging to the belief that outdoor school athletic facilities are closed by ODH until 6/30, even though that was never true. And even though OHSAA...

    We had a call last night and I lobbied again about the face coverings, mostly for officials, and thought I got shrugged off especially when one of the health dept people got a little agitated that I brought it up again. Today the Governor's...

    I had two: 1) Time limit games and the games that coaches played to take advantage of them ... I always understood the reasons for time limits, but the game just wasn't made to have time limits, especially anything less than 90 minutes .... and...

    I'm not Mike Craig but I would like to support the statement above by Bob_Himmelein. "Complex" is probably an understatement at this point considering the rules and regulations that are facing any upcoming tourneys in 2020. I mention 2020 because...
