    Thanks, Dan, but I do think I got this one right. I like the record the way it stands AND if you watch again, all 19 of us touch home plate the second time through in just under 45 seconds. First one starts around :13 sec, the last one touches haome around :58 sec. In my book, that's 45 sec.!!

      So are you saying the timing starts when the first person crosses home plate AFTER they've rounded the bases? Seems it should start when they begin racing around the diamond, no?

      I don't know how to explain it any clearer than this....Time starts when the first person in line, first crosses home plate AND time ends when the nineteenth person crosses the home plate after rounding the bases, this happens to be the last person in red at 45 seconds.

      I got it. I somehow thought the first people went around more than once, but now realize I'm mistaken. Congrats to all!

    Very impressive skills. Not sure about the category though, as all 19 players cross home plate in well under 45 seconds. How about "Fastest Time For 19 Wheelchair Softball Players To Round a Baseball Diamond"? Timing would start when first player starts racing, and finish when the final player crosses home plate.
