LL Softball/Baseball?

There's been some discussion in the football thread about getting a softball/baseball game together. The two dates that have been thrown out are April 12th and April 26th. Both days are home games for the Mariners and the plan was to meet up to play a couple games at around noon, head to the bar around 4ish to grab some drinks, then head to the stadium to see the Mariners play. Or if we all didn't want to to go the game, to start the softball game a little later (maybe around 2), play a couple of games, then head to a bar to watch the Mariners.

I can't make it on the 12th, but that shouldn't stop it from happening anyway. I can make it to the 26th, though.

Jeff mentioned that when he comes up he'd like to play actual baseball instead of softball. Here are a few of my concerns:


  • Pitch speed: Some people may be uncomfortable hitting faster pitching (>50-60 MPH) especially if you haven't ever really played competitive baseball.
  • Safety: I think it'd be smart to have batting helmets and safety gear for the catcher if we're going to face live pitching
  • Fun: The LL softball games that have been played so far have been fairly laid back. They've been competitive, yes, but it's never been stressful to step into the batters box to hit.

  • That being said, I still think it'd be a ton of fun to play baseball. Since Jeff isn't coming up for this event we can play either softball or baseball. So, let's go to the poll.
