Basepath safety issues

October 19, 2012

Our league would like to reiterate our rules regarding player safety on the basepaths. If everyone always followed these three simple rules we would have fewer basepath safety issues:

1. When running to first base, if a play is potentially going to be made on you (you hit a ground ball) you MUST run to the base that sits in FOUL territory while the first baseman uses the bag that sits in FAIR territory.

If you run to the wrong bag when a throw to first base is coming, you will be called OUT even if you beat the throw or even if the first baseman doesn't catch the throw. This rule has been listed in our rules for years. Our rules are available at the left on the Main Menu.

2. When running from first base towards second base, all base runners MUST slide or avoid the second baseman or the shortstop covering the bag. We do not want player-to-player contact. Unavoidable contact during a clean slide is just a part of the game with which we have to live. Making contact with an infielder's upper torso while coming in standing up (contact with your shoulder, elbow, hip or knee) is entirely another story. Please slide into the bag or peel away.

3. When running from first base, if you are put out at second while you are still far away from the second base bag, GET OUT OF THE WAY and do not block the defensive player's throwing lane. You could get drilled unless the defensive player voluntarily opts to alter his throw so as to avoid your forehead.

As our Commissioner Bob Johnson put it, if a player cannot go to work on Friday, because of something like this that happened with us on Thursday, then it was not a good night.

Top Fourteen Things To Know About the Warriors Softball League

1. Our primary reason for existence is to have fun in a safe way and build male friendships.
2. To accomplish that we only allow the use of league-furnished, ASA approved bats, in 26oz, 27oz, 28oz and 29oz weights. Any other bat, other than those provided by the league, is prohibited, except for players 69 years of age, or players turning 69 that year. These players may use any bat of their choosing. Currently we use the Mizuno "Craze" and the Mizuno "Frenzy" composite bats.
3. We use a 375/.44 polyurethane-core softball.
4. We re-draft teams each season, so players are not with the same teammates each and every season. Eventually, everyone plays with (and against) everybody else.
5. We have "AAA"-type tournament-quality players, and we have "A"-type recreational-quality players, and everything in between.
6. We have 45-year-old players and we have 70-year-players and every age in between.
7. We have a true draft, but even though we do not make promises or issue guarantees, we bend over backwards to make every effort to try to make special accommodations to players who need to be on the same team for whatever reason (siblings, carpool together from afar, etc.)
8. We allow the use of courtesy runners once a batter reaches first base.
9. Outfielders must station themselves behind an arc of orange cones until a ball is struck by a batter. If a batted ball touches the outfield grass, the batter can do no worse than a single and does not need to run/walk/crawl/get to first base. Batters may not be put out at first base on a throw from any outfielder.
10. We hire our own real paid umpires.
11. Every team participates in the first round of the post-season playoffs.
12. Every player receives a new shirt each season and it's theirs to keep forever. We do not issue faded, shrunken, ill-fitting hand-me-down shirts to our players.
13. The league hosts all players, from all teams, to a pizza party immediately after conclusion of each season's championship game, at no charge to the players. At the party, usually attended by 60-70 players, the Brad Betz Memorial Award is presented to the league's "best teammate". For information on this award, click on the Brad Betz tab on the left side of this homepage near the top.
14. All games have not only a fully-stocked first aid kit on site, but also a cardiac defibrillator at each backstop. Most league players have been trained on how to use it.
