Ahhhh you must be jealous
I certainly am when you all talk about games in the middle of our winter with temps 8 or 9 degrees celcius .
Jealous? Of what? The weather? Ha!

I was at the top of Pikes Peak on a bright, sunny Thursday afternoon last week. The temp was in the 20's (F) with a steady 10-15 mph winds with gusts up to 25. Loved every second of it. There is absolutely nothing wrong with some cold weather.
The bat issue in softball is as much about liability, insurance and litigation as it is about competition, inflated egos and softball.
