What's up Gente, I hope everyone has a wonderful new year for 09.

I have spoken with members of other clubs and have come up with an idea, to have an all day softball tournament with all of the Sacramento Area lowriders. This is something to bring unity and togetherness away from car shows and picnics to have a fun friendly gathering. We would like all Sacramento Area Lowriders to be involved, this event is not hosted by any club IT WILL be organized by everyone.
Let's get at least one representative of each club to give input for this event and make it happen.

Everyone has different schedules so we will aim for Sunday afternoons, since majority of the people have Sundays off. :biggrin:

TIME: 1PM
If you have any concerns or ideas please post them up or PM me and they will be brought up at the meeting.

Not everyone has access to Lay it low, so it would be appreciated to spread the word and have every lowrider club from Sacramento be part of this event, this can turn out to be a annual event.

Softball Rules Simplified


THE GAME

There are 9 players on a softball team.
The playing field is divided into the infield and outfield
The lines between the bases are 60’ apart and when joined they form a “diamond”, inside the baseline is known as the infield
Outside the baseline but inside the playing field is called the outfield.
Any ball going outside the 1st or 3rd base line is a foul ball ( runners can not advance and the batter gets another try unless the ball was caught in the air, which translates to an out)
An official game is 7 innings (a inning is when both teams have had their turn to bat)
PITCHING

The pitcher must have both feet on the pitcher’s rubber and can only take one step forward while pitching.
The ball must be thrown underhand.
Both hands must be on the ball at the start of the pitch.
BATTING

Batters must follow the same order throughout the whole game
The batter is out if and when:
a) three strikes have been called

b) a fly ball is caught

c) the batter does not stand in the batter’s box

BASE RUNNING

Runners must touch each base in order
Runners may overrun 1st base only, all other bases the runner may be tagged and called out if they are off the base.
Runners can not lead off a base, they must be on base until the ball as left the pitcher’s hand
After a fly ball has been caught the base runner must tag the occupied base before advancing to the next base
One base runner can not pass another base runner that is ahead of them.
Stealing a base is not permitted
A runner is out if:
a. they are tagged with the ball before reaching a base

b. the ball gets to 1st base before the runner

c. they run more than 3 feet out of the base line to avoid being tagged

TERMS:

Ball- a legally pitched ball that does not enter the strike zone (four balls equals a walk)
Grounder- A ball that is hit on the ground
Force out- when the runner has to advance to the next base to make room for the following base runner.
Fly ball- ball hit up in the air to the infield
On deck- the next batter
Pop up- ball hit up in the air to the infield
Strike- term used when a ball is swung at and missed or is called when the ball enters the strike zone and is not swung at all.
Strike zone- the ball passes the batter over the plate between their chest and knees

Its 9 players on a team for softball. I know thats alot of people especially for small clubs that might want to participate. Maybe we should do Bowling instead?  :dunno:
:no: on the bowling . I know Lo*Lystics,Uce,FearNone,Devotions,Compadres and a few more clubs out there have more than 9 players :)

Max and i Bs'd about this at breakfast this morning.

I think its cool, and think it would work if you had the right number of people involved.

However, If we cant even get all the car clubs to do functions with each other and theres so much shit talk, I think this is gonna be difficult to get the same number of people to do this (every other weekend), if they get butthurt to try to do a function once a month or year.

But again, something to help the connection between everyone is better than not trying at all. I think its a good move.

Hey Scottie thanks for the input. The object of this gathering is to bring unity in our community and have a positive outlook to one another. I don't know what in the heck is going on and WHY, but it needs to stop. :uh:
The reason that i am throwing a planning date out there so early is to make sure we don't Double book events, so everyone can be involved at this event. :)

This sounds great and LO*LYSTICS is down. Socios what a good idea! I think if their are enough solo riders to put their own team together they should be welcomed also, but just a idea to talk about at the first meeting.
