RIP, COACH, JAMES MORRIS of BENICIA, CA

James Robert Morris, 38, was tragically taken from his family and friends Feb. 26, as he was providing for his family and helping someone in need as he always did.James was born July 15, 1980 in Vallejo, to Robert and Pamela (Monk) Morris. James grew up in Vallejo and attended Pennycook, Springstowne and graduated from Hogan High in 1999 where he was an officer in the NJROTC program and met the love of his life Nicole Salet Morris of Vallejo.

James enjoyed bowling in the local leagues, was an avid sports fan and loved attending A's baseball and Sharks hockey games. He loved participating in Demolition Derbies and Jalopy races, Nascar, monster trucks, coaching softball and Disney trips.

He is survived by his high school sweetheart Nicole of 20 years; his amazing daughters, Chloe Elizabeth (14) and Cheryl Lynne (11); parents, Robert and Pamela; sister, Amanda (Matt); niece, Hannah; nephew, Cody; sister-in-law, Dani, and extended family.

In 1999 he began his career at the family business Wilers Tow and in 2007 he and his wife had to take over after the unfortunate passing of his mother-in-law, Cheryl Salet. This allowed James the opportunity to help and serve those in need within the Benicia, Vallejo and surrounding communities.

Please join the family Wednesday, March 6, for a visitation from 4 to 8 p.m., at Skyview Memorial Lawn, 200 Rollingwood in Vallejo. Funeral services are Thursday, March 7, at 11 a.m., at The Hill, 210 Locust St., Vallejo. Reception will follow from 1 to 4 p.m., at USA World Classics Event Center, 1521 Sonoma Blvd., Vallejo.Nicole, Chloe, Cheryl and extended family are thankful to the towing community and wonderful friends for all of the love and support.

In lieu of flowers please make a donation for his wife and daughters ERSCA (note "Wilers Tow" in the box): https://ersca.org/donate/Arrangements entrusted to the direction and care of Skyview Memorial Lawn. 644-7474.


 

Dear Junior Division Players, Parents, Managers, and Coaches,

Your 2019 Benicia Girls Softball Board and Division VP's take our girls safety and instructional softball learning very serious.  

Our goal is to always promote a positive and fun learning environment.

We have received valuable feedback from our Junior Managers, Coaches, Parents, Players, and Umpires this last 3 years regarding certain rules for the Junior Division.

After much discussion and deliberation we are amending a few supplemental Junior Division rules to improve our girls fundamental understanding of the game of softball at this age level of 8-10 year old players.  

 

*To continue the success of our softball organization we must also continue

to encourage and build our umpires.

Without umpires, we are unable to offer a competitive and fun softball

learning environment for our girls.

The Junior Division is the first age group where we offer umpires, so this is always an adjustment for our players, coaches, and parents.

The Junior Division is also where we train and nurture our new and always improving umpire staff.

Remember, our umpires are our own children learning a new job and wanting to try their best.

Every game is an instructional environment for our daughters playing and for our umpires too.

Please lead by example, and continue to understand that players,

coaches, and umpires make mistakes.

We encourage all girls that have played in our BFP league to umpire and give back to the young women that are the foundation of our successful future.  

Thank you for always thinking before speaking, and to be the role model

that you want your children to learn from.

 

 

Amended rules are highlighted in red for easy transparency and understanding.

4 Basic Rules have been updated for the Junior Division Only:

#1) There will be no practice games.  

All games will count towards seeding and end of year tournament.

#2) There will be No Drop 3rd Strike Rule. Batters are out after three (3) strikes, whether or not the catcher catches the third (3rd) strike.

#3)  Sliding into 2nd, 3rd, and home plate when stealing is recommended for the safety of both the offensive and defensive player. If a runner does not slide, and causes a collision with a defensive player, the umpire has the right to call them out.

#4) Runners may not steal home.

 

Reminder of our Junior Division Adjusted Strike Zone:

1. The Junior Division will have an adjusted strike zone to promote areas of play: pitching and batting. The enlarged strike zone increases the success of pitchers and prompts batters to swing the bat.

2. Umpires will call balls and strikes. The umpire has complete control of strike/ball determination but has been given the following guidance:

- Zone Up/Down: The strike zone will start at mid-calf and continue to the top of the shoulder.

Junior Division Safety Rules & Umpire Respect and Understanding

Junior Division Rules to Improve Safety and Game Play

Dear Junior Division Players, Parents, Managers, and Coaches,

Your 2019 Benicia Girls Softball Board and Division VP's take our girls safety and instructional softball learning very serious.  

Our goal is to always promote a positive and fun learning environment.

We have received valuable feedback from our Junior Managers, Coaches, Parents, Players, and Umpires this last 3 years regarding certain rules for the Junior Division.

After much discussion and deliberation we are amending a few supplemental Junior Division rules to improve our girls fundamental understanding of the game of softball at this age level of 8-10 year old players.  

 

*To continue the success of our softball organization we must also continue to encourage and build our umpires.

Without umpires, we are unable to offer a competitive and fun softball learning environment for our girls.

The Junior Division is the first age group where we offer umpires, so this is always an adjustment for our players, coaches, and parents.

The Junior Division is also where we train and nurture our new and always improving umpire staff.

Remember, our umpires are our own children learning a new job and wanting to try their best.

Every game is an instructional environment for our daughters playing and for our umpires too.

Please lead by example, and continue to understand that players, coaches, and umpires make mistakes.

We encourage all girls that have played in our BFP league to umpire and give back to the young women that are the foundation of our successful future.  

Thank you for always thinking before speaking, and to be the role model that you want your children to learn from.

 

We have attached the complete Junior Division Supplemental Playing Rules below.

Amended rules are highlighted in red for easy transparency and understanding.

4 Basic Rules have been updated for the Junior Division Only:

#1) There will be no practice games.  All games will count towards seeding and end of year tournament.

#2) There will be No Drop 3rd Strike Rule. Batters are out after three (3) strikes, whether or not the catcher catches the third (3rd) strike.

#3)  Sliding into 2nd, 3rd, and home plate when stealing is recommended for the safety of both the offensive and defensive player. If a runner does not slide, and causes a collision with a defensive player, the umpire has the right to call them out.

#4) Runners may not steal home.

 

Reminder of our Junior Division Adjusted Strike Zone:

1. The Junior Division will have an adjusted strike zone to promote areas of play: pitching and batting. The enlarged strike zone increases the success of pitchers and prompts batters to swing the bat.

2. Umpires will call balls and strikes. The umpire has complete control of strike/ball determination but has been given the following guidance:

- Zone Up/Down: The strike zone will start at mid-calf and continue to the top of the shoulder.

 

 

JUNIOR DIVISION

SUPPLEMENTAL PLAYING RULES : (Amended Rules in Red)

The junior division is instructional. There will be no practice games.  The season score and standings will be kept and will determine seeding for the end of season tournament. Based on the amount of teams, a single or double elimination tournament may be scheduled near the end of the regular season. The junior division will be made up of players 9 & 10 years old (and possibly some 8 year olds). Playing rules are the Official rules established by the International Joint Rules Committee and the Amateur Softball Association of America for FASTPITCH Softball, current editions, with the following exceptions, additions, or clarifications:

 

A. Field dimensionsBases are 60 feet apart, with a 35’ pitching distance. The distance from home to second base is 84 feet 10 ¼ inches. NOTE: Pitching distance is measured from the back of home plate to the front of the pitching rubber.

 

B. Equipment: The 11-inch Reduced Impact Ball shall be used in all games and practices. The Junior Division Vice President will choose the brand of ball. A double bag at first base will be used.

 

C. Pitching

1. It is not necessary for pitchers to “look back” base runners when the pitcher has possession of the ball within an eight (8) foot radius of the pitching rubber. CLARIFICATION: A base runner must IMMEDIATELY return to the base that she had prior possession of, if she had not begun her steal before the pitcher received the ball.

2. Batters must be pitched to.

3. The Umpire will sign the official score book for the pitched innings by the pitchers. The official scorekeeper will note innings pitched for each pitcher.

4. A player who has pitched or is known to be a pitcher during a previous season cannot be on the same team as another pitcher. Exception: When there are more pitchers than teams available, placement of remaining pitchers shall be made under the discretion of the Junior Division Vice President. 

5. A pitcher may pitch no more than three (3) innings per game. For purposes of this rule, an inning is defined as a minimum of one (1) pitch. During the tournament pitchers may pitch no more than (4) innings per game.

 

D. Batting

1. Once the 5th run has been scored in the offensive team at bat, the inning shall be declared over and no other runners may score .Exception in last inning team may score enough runs to tie the game

2. Batters are out after three (3) strikes, whether or not the catcher catches the third (3rd) strike. No Drop 3rd Strike.

3. All eligible players present at a game shall be placed in the batting order and bat throughout the game regardless of whether they are in the defensive lineup or not.

4. In the event of an emergency or injury where a player is removed from the batting order, the batting order will shrink and no penalty will be incurred.

 

E. Base running

1. Sliding is permitted at all bases.  Sliding into 2nd base, 3rd base, and home plate when stealing is recommended for the safety of both the offensive and defensive player. If a runner does not slide, and causes a collision with a defensive player, the umpire has the right to call them out.

2. Runners starting at first or second base are entitled to steal one base only per pitch with liability to be put out.

For Junior Division, runners may not steal home. Note: A runner attempting to advance beyond the one base they are entitled to steal, may be put out while between bases. A runner cannot be put out while in sole contact with a base after all play ceases and the ball becomes dead. If a runner occupies a base beyond the one the runner was entitled to steal, the runner will be returned to the correct base without liability to be put out.

3. Leading from the base is not permitted until the ball leaves the pitchers hand as part of the pitching motion. PENALTY: Runner is out and the ball is dead.

4. Optional: Hurry Up Rule for Catcher. With two outs and catcher on base, the catcher may be replaced on base with the player who made the last out in that inning.

 

F. Time Limits

1. Six (6) innings. Note: No new innings may be started after 75 min and a drop dead time of 85 min. If incomplete, game will revert back to last inning. A new inning starts when the third out is made.

Once an inning starts, it must be completed, if time is remaining and conditions are safe.

2. Thirty (30) minutes prior to any regularly scheduled season game, use of the field will be restricted. The visiting team shall have the infield twenty (20) minutes prior to the scheduled starting time. The home team shall have the infield the last ten (10) minutes prior to the start of the game.

3. Ten Run Rule: If the home team is ahead by 10 or more runs at the end of 4 ½ innings, or the visiting team is ahead by 10 or more runs at the end of 5 innings, the game shall be called.

4. Regulation game: Game terminated before regulation time (75 minutes) has expired shall be deemed a complete game if 2 or more innings have been played.

 

G. Player Participation

Each uniformed player on the team roster, who appears for a game, must participate in that game.

Those girls that do not play 3 full defensive innings in a given 6 inning game shall start the following game to insure that equal playing time is given to all girls. Managers/Coaches found not to play all players 2 full defensive innings in a 6 inning game will receive a written warning from the executive board. Any further violations will be investigated by the executive board, and based upon the findings, could result in the suspension of manager/coach duties.

2. Ten players are permitted on the field at one time with six infielders and four outfielders. Outfielders must be on the grass at the time of the pitch.

This includes weather, darkness, and conduct of the team, parents, spectators, managers and/or coaches. If a game is called before and inning is completed, the score will revert back to the last completed inning. If the game is not a regulation game, refer to Section F-4 of these rules. 

 

 

J. End of Season Tournament and Awards

- Zone Up/Down: The strike zone will start at mid-calf and continue to the top of the shoulder.
