- Capital Region Softball League
Now that we all have a few games under our belts and the players are starting to know the routine it's time to speed up the game and see if we can get an extra inning or two in!
As per our Softball Canada Rule book the time between innings should be no longer than the time it takes to deliver 5 warm up pitches (3 if its a returning pitcher) or one minute!
Now if we can work at getting our players into this routine (imagine taking 4-5 minutes from every half inning from time wasted by players walking onto the field times the 3 or 4 innings we are currently playing) we should all be able to get our full games in! It may take a bit more preparation by the coaches before the game to get the player's positions decided before the game but in the end it will be worth it! Get those bench moms and dads helping out with getting the catchers ready - use a courtesy runner for your catcher when you have two outs and coaches warm up your pitchers if the catcher isn't ready.
Get your players to hustle on and off the field - not only does it make your team look better but it will give the coaches more time to coach!
Remember - This is FASTBALL!
