Actually, I just said that I would call what I saw. If I cannot tell they missed the bag, then, in my best judgment, they touched it.

You have to remember that some folks think just getting a foot within 18" of a base is "close enough" for a neighborhood play. Guess what? It isn't good enough if I see the player, offensive or defensive, miss the bag.

The bat issue in softball is as much about liability, insurance and litigation as it is about competition, inflated egos and softball.
