    just go around her...its coed softball, i have a feeling if you would have gotten tagged out at home because you chose to actually avoid the girl instead of trucking her or sliding into her and knocking her over, then everyone on your team would have been ok with it

    also, if it stays in the yard...its not a bomb

    running her over or sliding into her are clearly the only options

    My immediate thought is he popped way up to the catcher, who was standing on home plate than knocked it fair like that other guy. That's kind of a "back fence"?

    My coed team completed a triple play on defense last week. That was pretty nutty

    Craziest thing I’ve ever seen...A cross dressing Tranny being allowed to play in woman’s and smashing the ball. News flash it’s still a man and shouldn’t playing.

    yeah, It's 2018, and doesn't work that way.

    This was actually brought up at an executive meeting in one league I'm in on how do address this situation should it arise. Post-op trannies qualify as their new gender in actual sports, they will in slowpitch softball too.

    Who’s gonna check to verify if they are “Post Op” lol. Should be whatever it says on their Driver’s license.

    They let male to female transgender people beat up women in the UFC.

    Why can’t they play softball?

    lol. Guess post-op was the wrong term to use.

    How about, people who identify as female, play female. end of story. They had to do so at the beginning of the year, and can't flip back and forth.

    So far, nobody's used or abuse it, and quite frankly, I'm not sure why you'd bother. Does winning beer league softball matter so much you stack up 3 dudes as chicks?

    You guys are opening up a huge bag of worms on this one. Haha. UFC lets Cyborg fight probably because they don't want to deal with the whining minority and the possible law suits if they ban he/she. I bet there would be an uproar if Tiger Woods or Lebron cut off their wieners and went to dominate the women's tour/league.

    The problem with our society is when PC over rules common sense and facts. Used to be majority rules but we now have to offend 90% of the population to appease the 10% or less that most of these PC issues matter to.

    No I didn't miss it. I'm an avid cyclist myself but track racing isn't close to being as popular as the Tour de France, Giro, or Vuelta. I guess you are missing my point so we can agree to disagree.

    She adopted a kid, but I've never heard that she actually had a kid. Post a link.

    Fallon Fox is the male to female transgender MMA fighter thats been beating the **** out of women for a couple years now. The UFC has never had one. Cyborg is a chick that was just juiced out of her mind when she trained out of Brazil. She actually looks way more ‘normal’ now than she did in prior to her UFC run.

    My craziest thing has nothing to do with playing the game but selling a doz Softballs On 10/29 I shipped a doz balls to YellowBusDriver. Left local PO and arrived in Sacramento Ca; Made 2 or 3 loops around Ca then headed Back east. After making a couple loops around N.E. they landed back at my local P,O, which send the back out. After another couple of loops around N.E. they ended up back at my local PO. They were sent out again and now for the last 4 days they have been in a loop around N.E. Finally got a message (which I got 3 times) that there is a problem and are resolving it. In all they have had 35 stops.
    I give credit to YellowBusDriver for his patience. like me he is curious how this is going to all end up. Will the balls ever be seen again???

    LOL. I don't see this as being a widespread issue anywhere. Is there a run on $100k surgeries? Why would they waste time in a meeting about this?

    You never know what can happen with the post office. I sent a freak 12 to Caledonia and it never made it. I insured the bat when I sent it. Called and started a claim with the post office. The bat showed up on my front porch a couple of days later. I took the bat back to the post office and ask them why it didn’t make it to Minnesota. The post office said they would send it to Minnesota again after I took it back up there. They did not want to give me a new tracking number but I insisted they give me new tracking and they did. The freak 12 did make the trip to the correct destination in the end. I buy extra insurance every time I ship with the post office from now on.

    p.s. Marl is vgtg
