Mike, Albert, Naeem chime in here if you plan on going. You paid but you did not respond to the email I sent out. So either you gave a bogus email, I typed it in wrong, the email went directly to your spam filter, or you simply did not reply.

We want to carpool as much as possible to not only save gas but for camaraderie sakes since spending eight hours together is not enough, might as well add a few hours of car time. Going to the game we can talk about how stupid the manager is going to be, and on the way home we can talk about how stupid the manager was.

People who have volunteered to carpool are:

Joe - seats 4 - Hollywood

David - seats 4 - NorthWest San Fernando Valley

Phil - seats 4 West San Fernando Valley

From what I understand Josh (Deliasman) is picking up Josie so they are covered.

Josh Schoenwald lives on the Westside and would like to carpool. I'd suggest he contact HJ who is in Hollywood. Matthew also resides on the Westside. So that looks like a good match.

I'd suggest Bobby drive with me.

I'd suggest David pickup Maddz and Gary unless they want to drive themselves.

AJ lives in SB and would be welcome to carpool with me but I think he's leaving later and I'll be leaving at a time that will get me to the park by 07:30AM or sooner.

This is the extent of my suggestions. Use the comments to make arrangements.

Below is the information I provided in the Email.

We are using ASA bat rules, USSSA Rules

USSSA Softball Rules

I'd suggest you hardball players check out the rulebook, many things you do in hardball will not play in softball.

It looks like we are using a 3, -1 Home run rule. Which means that only 3 home runs per team per game will be allowed, and only one home run more then the other team. Any other home runs would be considered outs. I don't anticipate that being a problem for us.

Key Rules:

  • Limited arc
  • Cannot leave the base until the ball is struck by the batter or hits the ground.
  • Max of 12 hitters per lineup
  • Our first game is at 08:00, gates open at 07:00AM. Yeah that is early.
