A few years ago I had the chance to see a WPF exhibition game at a girls
tournament in the Quad cities. Quite frankly I found the game very
exciting. I thought that the changes made the game move a little quicker
and provided a lot of entertainment (which is the main purpose of any
professional sport). I think that this sort of league has a real chance
of taking off.

My wife and I watched a special on PSP sports a few months ago about
Professional Softball. We did not think it was representing what we liked
about ASA Fastpitch.

I agree.  There's nothing wrong with the game, don't change it.
