tactics and tricks
The ISF Tradestaff World Softball
Championships begin at Rosedale
Park in Albany today. Tournament
ambassador and Black Sox legend
Mark Sorenson gives some insight
to the game in part 2 of his guide to
So how does a pitcher
disguise his pitch?
There are three main
styles of pitching and
you will see a number of
variations depending on
their ability and the tac-
tics that they want to
throw to specific batters.
With the drop ball the
pitcher is looking for the
top to bottom rotation
and the ball just rolls off
the fingers when it is
The rise ball is the
opposite and you will see
the ball take an upward
flight to the batter.
But the one that hope-
fully confuses the batters
is the change-up ball,
this is a much slower
pitch but with the same
arm speed to disguise
When that ball is hit
everything happens so
fast with the ball flying
around and runners on
the base paths, you
really have to do all the
thinking before the play.
For the team fielding
this is a challenge
especially when the
players are on bases.
That is when the
defensive play unfolds
and players on the bases
and in the outfield will
be asking themselves, If
the ball is hit to me,
where do I go with it?
runner if he runs?
Do I throw it to the
next base in front of the
runner and have him
Or do I take the easy
option and throw it to
Before you decide, you
have to make sure you
can catch the ball, and
most importantly, your
glove must fit properly so
it can be used effectively.
As a catcher my mitt
was my weapon, bigger
and stronger than other
position gloves, it had to
be durable in order to
take the pounding.
First base is the only
other member of the
team that wears a mitt;
the size helps to receive
the ball which sometimes
isn't always on target.
The infielders and out-
fields also have special-
ised gloves, smaller for
the infield and with
longer fingers for the
outfield, good for catch-
ing balls in the air.
Last but not least is
the pitcher, they tend to
use bigger gloves to hide
the grip of the pitch
about to be thrown.
And whether you are a
pitcher or a batter, tech-
nology has played a large
part in the innovations of
From the wooden bats
of the 60s and 70s to the
aluminium ones of the
80s and 90s, it is today's
composite graphite ones
that are most preferred.
And not forgetting the
helmet, especially if you
are a young player, no
helmet, no batting''
safety is of paramount
When you have a ball
travelling at 125kmh to
130kmh from only 14
metres away, that ball
can do some damage.
From its original cen-
tre of tightly wound
string to a cork centre
and now to poly-
urethane, it now adds to
the overall experience
and enjoyment of watch-
ing the game.
Bright fluoro yellow
with red stitching, it has
much better visibility for
players and fans.
Good wins in tag action
On the ball: Rodney's Lenny McGinley tries to avoid getting tagged in a match
against Wellington during the tag nationals at Victor Eaves Park.
Victor Eaves Park was
filled with colour, cul-
ture and action during
the tag national cham-
pionships last week.
There were 68 teams
from around New Zea-
land competing across

venue in a tournament
extended to three days.
