This would be a pretty big problem to me. Luckily, I haven't run across it yet.

Re: And Now.......Bonds

Records always will be relative to the times that were set. For example, pitchers were not the same when Ruth set his record. Saves are now easier to broke, because 30 years ago was not closers. Carl Ripken record, never will be broken, because actual players make too much money to play for pride. How many Pete Rose's hits were hit because the astro turf in so many parks in the 70's.? How many HR Bonds will hit today if the pitching mount and the fences were the same that in the 70's? Do...

Well said. It's part of coach speak to get you on board. Sometimes it's said because they have a tough time with getting commitment later than sooner. It's not always a bad thing, but it's just an example that they know how to do it better than we do.

I don't know where your son is playing or if it's at a similar level, but the other day I was checking out the Cape Cod League website to see how a couple of guys we know are doing (really well) and I clicked on the transactions page. Absolutely brutal. http://pointstreak.com/basebal...&seasonid=31242#

Keep in mind that many of these players released were temps until the post season was over. As to RedFish's response, he is right, the coaches have to notify players by the 30th.

I noticed some guys activated (resulting in the release of someone else), that were in Omaha. I think that needs to be taken into consideration. I kind of compare this to milb transactions. It's pretty active this time of year, replacing current guys to make a spot for the newly drafted.

Re: Preferred Walk-on / Admissions

UCLA has had some notable successes. David Berg for one, who I believe ended up as the NCAA all time saves leader. Good article here: http://dailybruin.com/2012/09/...nd-for-ucla-basebal/ Also, the dh on last year's UCLA team, who started as a walk-on freshman.

Re: Preferred Walk-on / Admissions

RJM ·
Here is where problems come into play. The category is “hearing/seeing what you want to hear rather than what is being said.” When the term “preferred walk on” comes up in conversation some parents and players will tell themselves how well it worked out for a handful of players. Therefore it’s ok. What they don’t know is how many players at UCLA tried to walk on and got nowhere. As suggested it must be asked of the coach, “What does it mean in my situation?”

Re: ISO Bag Recommendations For Catchers Traveling By Air

BBMomAZ ·
We use this one: https://www.easton.com/basebal...s/e100g-8014602.html Bats actually fit lengthwise inside the bag and for extra protection we put them in cardboard mailing tubes (purchased at a UPS store for a few dollars). We have never had to pay any extra luggage fees so it seems this bag is within the standard bag size to check in. My son's mitt always goes with him in the carry-on bag.

Re: Illinois 17u baseball team looking for players

Tyus Adkins ·
Hi Dan, I am a 17 year old 2014 from Iowa. I am interested in your team that you are forming. In Iowa we play high school basebal in the summer. I am not sure if that would be an issue for what you are looking for or not. We usually do not have any games on Saturdays or Sunday. Thank You, Tyus Adkins

Re: Poll: No steroid users in record books

You can't go back and apply punishement to a 'crime' retroactively . Let's say the feds find Bonds used steroids illegaly. Basebal can't just arbitrarily apply a punishement that wasn't already in their by-laws. As for the future. The policy should be: Get caught the first time- one year supsension. Get caught 2nd time- lifetime ban. That sends the message. The five strike policy is a joke.

Re: Notre Dame to the ACC

BK_Razorback ·
I'm shocked the ACC hasn't already forced Syracuse to field a basebal team by a certain date. I know it was a basketball move but an ACC team should be required to have a baseball team.

Re: Notre Dame to the ACC

RJM ·
It wasn't a basketball move. The Big East is stronger than the ACC. It was a business move based on football issues will ultimately cause the Big East to crumble. Why should Syracuse be forced to have a baseball program? How are they going to draw ACC level talent to play in their weather?

Re: Notre Dame to the ACC

fenwaysouth ·
I agree with Bulldog19 that it would be difficult to force a school to add a sport as there are cost issues as well as possible Title IX issues. Syracuse has a softball team. There are other D1 baseball schools in upstate NY including Albany, Binghampton, Buffalo, and Cornell. Granted it is the ACC we're talking about, but it is doable (Carrier Dome?) or they may spend the first 4-6 weeks on the road like most northern teams. This is no different than other D1 northern schools, but the...

Missed the original post by pop up. Have corresponded with him over the years. I know he had very high hopes for sons basebal and was never happy with it. Many timesI told him forget the baseball build the relationship and I guess from the responses there are still issues between them. Life goes fast. One of my best friends lost her only child almost two years ago and the journey has been tough. I wish all parents could not make baseball tbe defining point in their relationship. Hey we were...
