View Full Version : Tabb's Home Field Advantage
04-25-2007, 09:12 PM
First of all, congratulations to Tabb on emerging as a contender in the BRD this year. However, somebody needs to take a look at their field situation. To not have a fence and to enforce the ground rules that they have in place makes it almost impossible to triple or homer in any game played there. I think this plays into Tabb's home field advantage with their lack of power hitters. Anyone agree?

I'm going to have to say I disagree. I play for Tabb baseball so I ride with the girls to all of the away games and I rememer a game or two where tabb had multiple home runs. So i wouldn't say tabb is not a power team. Plus, what does it matter if there is no fence? If you are good enough you should come out with a win regardless of what field you play on. As a baseball player I've played on some pretty bad fields. Southhampton has firehoses as foul lines. But we still come out with wins and if we don't we would never blame it on the field. Lame excuse. Sorry tabb has come out hotter than you thought they would this year. If you want to blame on something, blame it on the talent not the field.

I am not blaming a loss because of their field, I am just saying there is no way a player can have anything more than a double. All the outfielders have to do is let the ball roll into the woods to keep the batter to a ground rule double at most. If the tabb girls have hit multiple homeruns in away games like you said, then wouldnt they want a fence so they could hit them at home? I wonder what happened to their fence. Since they have had one in the past it makes me wonder why they do not have one now...

in my 3 years at Tabb they have never had a fence.
so i dont know what you are talking about when
you say that they have had one before.

They had a fence for the 2005 season. It was one of the orange construction type fences.

She won't tell you, but I bet YORK!:D

Tabb did have a fence a couple of years ago. This ground rule is something the home coach gets to decide. However, the visiting coach does not have to agree. If the visiting coach does not agree, the umpire will decide the ground rule that will be inforced.

Quite true. There was an orange fence put up, however it did not stay up, and with the woods right behind it, it was a safety issue in putting it up and down as we did not leave it up in the weather. Either way its a safety issue for the girls to have to get balls in there so its a fair rule. Also, seeing as you ARENT from Tabb you would probably not realize the field isn't owned by TABB its a CHURCH field so if we actually wanted a permanent field, we wouldn't be able to PUT ONE IN. so if you really think it's a homefield advantage consider the fact Tabb softball has hit 7+ "homeruns" at home so far this year in key situatiions with girls in scoring position.
Stop whining about Tabb field when there's nothing they can do about it. If you're good enough you'll win.
And lack of power hitters? HAHA! HAHA.. wow gave me quite a laugh, they average atleast 10 hits a game. And they had two homeruns against Bruton alone. What team are YOU from?

Okay Clutch Hitter, please know the facts and post things that are true and quit throwing off on other teams. As a fan of all sports and there are many of us out there that enjoy watching everyone and reading up on how everyones doing. We are tired of the the little " I bet its someone from York". I make a point to get to get to all games this side of the water and the southside and have come to learn alot from listening while I'm at the games and for your information BayRivah Girl is not someone from YORK. I see someone else has had to let you know on another thread that Felix isn't from York either so please quit. We all know where you are from in the PD and interesting you call yourself a clutch hitter. Keep us posted on your games and don't worry so much about the other districts.

Why does me commenting my opinion make you SOOOO mad! That is what this forum is about OPINION! I know felix is from Grafton and Snoclaf is from York and Bayrivahgirl is from York! I can comment and express my opinion about any of the forums, sorry if you get mad, but I am just speaking the truth!

Well, I figured I'd let this one slide at first, but after seeing apost in the daily press about it, I knew I would need to add more.
3 Key points:
1. It's only impossible to hit a homer or triple at the Tabb field if you are a slow runner. From my knowledge Tabb and other teams alike have hit many triples. Sounds like a personal problem to me.
2. Home field advantage you say? Tabb has lost 4 games, 3 of which were at home....:rolleyes:
3. 8 times Tabb runner have been held at a ground rule double, where as only one visiting team runner has been held by hitting it into the woods.
So in the end I don't agree, and hopefully people are smart enough to see that ;). Great job Daily Press on finally giving Tabb some news though! Keep up the GREAT work... :mmph:

Yes, clutch hitter this is a forum. Looking at some of the threads, you seem to have an obsession with some of the girls at York and insisting on calling out certain people on this forum saying their from York and we are ALL just saying turn your obsession into your own district. It sounds like the only anger is coming from you and if you want to speak the truth then start telling us about you and your own games. We would love to hear about something new.

Personally, I'd love to have it where people stayed on topic or created a seperate thread called "I want to complain about everything, but in particular _________"
I'd also like to point out in the tabb vs. grafton game, which grafton won, tabb scored a homerun. Seems that the whole "can't hit a homerun thing just went out the door" wow, pretty amazing, huh? And it wasn't even due to an error, wow thats double amazing!
05-01-2007, 10:33 PM
I was wondering if anyone (other than me) think Clutch Hitter is from PD with intials of P.C.? Hmmmmm sounds as if it is............and if it is than she has no room to speak anything bad about the BRD.......
05-01-2007, 10:45 PM
Lol and that has relevance why?
What do you think about the homerun hit by a Tabb player today? Have anything to add to that?
05-01-2007, 11:44 PM
I was at the Tabb Grafton game today and the homerun you are talking about was not an "error" but was a misplayed ball by thr left fielder. The ball was hit no more than 125 feet in the air and rolled to the woods. The speed of the batter turned it into a home run. Also I would add that the ball hit by the Grafton catcher would have been a bonified home run if Tabb had a fence, it was hit into the woods but was called a ground rule double.
05-01-2007, 11:55 PM
Well, it was still a homerun correct? proving the theory its impossible INcorrect. Seems if people don't just let the ball roll into the woods they could make better plays. But, I think visiting teams actually enjoy having no fence as much as Tabb does. I'd also like to point out the 2nd basemen for Tabb also hit a hard one into center field woods and that wouldve been more than just a double, and now that I think about it, wasn't she forced to stay at second twice? hmm me=:first:
05-02-2007, 12:13 AM
Nobody can argue that the two balls hit by the second baseman were shots. Fence or no fence it's pointless to argue if she could have made it to third or not. We will never know.
