Thumbs down Bush or part of the game?

All the southern Teams we played and the ones we watched at the ASA D Nationals would check swing/slap bloopers over the infield. Like what girls do in fast pitch ball.

I have never in my 25+ years of playing softball seen this pussy ch!t.

I couldn't believe what I saw. Hit the ball like a man.

What do you guys think?

I may have to start practicing it.

I'd say it's good bat control.... Some might even call it playing "Small Ball"

Every year i've gone to the worlds i've seen those southern teams do that. It pisses off most of us northern teams and takes us out of our game.

Thats how they all play down there. We see it a bit here with some fast lefties but it is not the norm. It really makes you crazy!

It's bush, but effective, and if you can bat .700 doing it, what are you going to do. Like Typer said, answer it in your own way.

We saw it some in the USSSA C's last year. You will see it at any national tourney . The team doing it to us was from California and came in 2nd or 3rd. It is something that you rarely see in the NEast. It gets you pissed when they are doing it to you because it is so difficult to defend, but it really is effective and especially against the 5 man infield. I say it is good bat control because if you cheat any of these guys most can smash it. I am surprised more guys around here don't utilize it.

last year in the asa c our team started off 2-0 and we played a team out of maryland i think and when i tell you they did this to perfection i mean it.they scored about 30 in three inning doing just that..mind you we had never seen that kind of stuff before.personally tried it a couple times in a local league and i looked like a fool it takes some bat control
