Instead of finding more ways to protect ourselves and spending more money doing so. Why don't we save tons of money and go back to equipment that would make the game safe. JMO

Sorry cal, the statement "World tourneys were never meant to be more than one representative from each state" was used to indicate a field of teams from the US that represented all of the states that registered with the association hosting the world tourney. In other words, world tourneys teams were supposed earn their entry, not given them. Their intentions were not to have world tourneys that allowed teams that had not qualified to participate. But I sure you could read between the lines, just not sure why your insisting on being anal. Everyone but you could interpret this. I like change as well, just not most of the changes where a World tourney is NOT really a world tourney. We all like softball or this conversation would not be happening. Others & I have played it for years and in my OPINION, we have removed a vital ingredients from our game, but added another. We've lost some integrity and really over emphasized money. JMO

Well cal, I don't think any of them do anymore. But this could be why some of the softball purist don't think much of our game anymore. USSSA started the world series for each class with only teams that won qualifiers. Then it became NIT champs only. I think that number at my first WS was 16 teams. The NIT were filled with teams looking to win that berth. The money being made was made on the NIT and the WS was the prize for winning one. Now the awards for the World winners aren't much different the the ones earned at the local tourney's, but the sure is!

Webbie, for all the folks who hate when Gary19 adds his 2 cents, I think you guys must be interested in what he says or why you would awake the sleeping dog. World tourneys were never meant to be more than one representitve from each state. A winner that earned the right to do so. What did all of these teams do to earn the passage to the most important tourney of the year? All it takes is MONEY! This is no world tourney. It's not the best of the best. it's the teams with the expendandable cash. JMO

Discussion: Take responsibilty

I'm glad your satisfied Silk. When you really think about it, 40 swings would be about a days worth of BP. So if anyone is saying they have a bat that last less than a day after purchase. By all means you have every right to be upset. But unless you can prove the equipment has a flaw or is defective, it's you got what you paid for. My beef is knowing we are buying non warrantied bats and complaining when they break. When anyone with common sense see NO WARRANTY on anything they purchase, it should send up a red flag. No one & I mean no one our age should expect anything different when purchasing this product. Have a great off season.

Bat prices have remained the same, but the manufactures are at every chance they get finding another source that's offshore or economically poor country to make them cheaper. That's the only reason they have not raised prices. When they can not drop pricing on manufacturing, the prices will start to rise or they'll discontinue making that model. All the products being offered today started out being manufactured at a higher price, when they realized they had a good product they started a search for cheaper labor and materials. I can guarantee you this, they will not make it a practice to replace non warranty bats.

For those that had bats replaced, I'm happy for you. But if you don't think we'll all be paying tomorrow for the way they're doing business today your wrong. Either the retail for these bats will go up, without any improvements or cost to the manufactures or if improvements are made at cost to them we'll see an added increase in retail. We're going to pay the difference anyway. Personally, replacing the bats with no warranty is bad business, period. A company doing this is setting themselves and/or the purchaser for disappointment when they eventually have to say no to you or someone else in a similar situation or they go out of business for a failed business plan. So continue to tell them that their no warranty bats really have one and you expect them to be replaced. Good luck!

Webbie, my comment (Hockey was never played without a net. Baseball/softball started out without fences. Lame excuse or try at making light of my example.) was directed towards someone else. I've learned not to give much of an opinion without using facts on here anymore. By the way, it's starting to cool down here in the mitten!

Discussion: Take responsibilty

The burden of proof will be on the purchaser of the bat. So with that being said, how far and at what cost do you or anyone suggest this should go? I would think to prove what your suggesting will incur dollars & maybe an attorney. If the judge decides there is a gray area regarding this, he will go right back to the fact that THE BAT HAS NO WARRANTY. The first and only question the judge will ask the buyer, did you know this bat HAS NO WARRANTY? They indicate from the wrapper on the bat to all over the Internet where they are sold. NO WARRANTY express or implied. Does it concern anyone else, that if we didn't have these players out here trying to get something for nothing, the bats would possibly could cost half of what they are now. These companies have to pay for the attorneys to remind the dummies that they bought a bat with NO WARRANTY.

Hockey was never played without a net. Baseball/softball started out without fences. Lame excuse or try at making light of my example. Did you not play without fences early in your career? Is that only reason you play? Pride can not only be a good thing, it can create problems sometimes if you can't swallow it at times.

Discussion: AAA Home Runs

Our generation has changed as much or more than the younger one's. Self-gratification! If anyone on here ever thought that "I understand some of the different issues mentioned here but I do not see the solution of going back to calling a 55 or 60 yr old person out for hitting a ball over 300 feet" would even be in a softball discussion amongst ourselves 30 years ago, I'll be the first to call you a liar. If your going to have a homerun rule, then they should be outs after the limit has been met. If not, it's not worth even talking about. That's why we insist on playing in complexes with fences, so we can feed the egos. We can end all this talk be taking a tourneys to open fields. Egos would be in check after the first 420 bombs is snapped off for an out.

Silk, makes no difference where the bat was purchased. NO WARRANTY is all over the Ultra II. I'm having a hard time understanding what some of you don't understand. Warranties come with higher pricing. If you want warranties, they can give them to us at a price. Bats will become 400.00 and you will get a one time replacement. That way they can still make the same margins. The old saying is simple, can you read the fine print? It's right there in black & white!

Discussion: AAA Home Runs

As long as homeruns are a major part of the criteria to place teams into or limit divisions because of the numbers of homeruns hit, this is always going to be a problem. Years ago, when we were all younger, the associations had directors at every tourney played. This changed when complexes starting going up & more tourneys were being held and directors were not at these parks watching the games. It became a money grab for the complexes and it made the directors jobs easier because they did not have to be at the park, because the complexes were running the tourney themselves. Directors could see who were the teams playing above, below or in the correct divisions and rectify that during or most likely after that tourney was completed. The only thing most of these associations know about your team or teams now, have they have paid the money. JMO

Discussion: Bat issue

Nope, I do not work for any bat company. I have been involved in the retail sporting goods for a good length of time. I have listened, overheard and had to referee this type of debates with customers for years. My recommendation to these folks then is the same then as it is today. STOP buying them or stop complaining when they don't last as long as you feel they should. Do you or anyone for that matter go and offer the manufactures any more money when the equipment exceeds the average expectations? To see or hear of anyone who knows what a warranty is before buying a bat and then complain that it did not last as long as THEY FEEL IT SHOULD HAVE, is mind boggling. There is a reason they do not warranty these bats, plain and simple. For the free one you won, please get over it. No outlay of money and you want a replacement? Look back at what your stating or asking on here, knowing you SHOULD NOT RECEIVE ANYTHING. They should say we're sorry, BUT WOULD YOU LIKE TO TRY ANOTHER? Most of todays players will just buy another! JMO

Ronnie, it's free! If you got one swing out of it, you got your monies worth. NO WARRANTY! That's part of playing senior ball. It's a price we pay for the technolgy we choose. Like I said, why would anyone expect anymore from a non warranty product. No warranty expressed or implied! JMO

For whatever it's worth. These are no warranty products. It doesn't matter if they are purchased for thousands of dollars or they are given away for free. They have no warranty! It is/was known before purchase. One swing or a thousand, it makes no difference. Iím amazed that some feel something should be replaced knowing there is no warranty. This is not directed at the two of you here on this post, it's for everyone who feels you should get something back knowing you should get nothing back. JMO

Discussion: Player Ratings

Fred, back to your original question. It would almost impossible to rate each player in senior ball in my opinion. I've never thought players should have a rating, but teams should if your gonna have any type of rating system at all. Everything we do in ball as far as rating goes is based on the homerun(s). If a player or players make the team a better so as they should be moved up, so be it. But rating the players I think is wrong. JMO! What do you think?

Whoa boys! This is not what I was looking for. Just a real simple question and I was not looking for a precise answer. Did Tri18 ever test the bat ball combo previously used versus the bats & balls of todays game. Tri18, I think or feel you already have an answer that would suffice. Thanks
