Discussion: SENIOR BATS


So where do you get year old, in the wrapper or unused bats, at half price?

I'd like to get the white 2 piece Miken Ultra 26oz. in the wrapper for half price?

Or maybe the Reebok Legend?

Who do you know is selling them?

Info please....

In some states it is still illegal to have the Knob Cuffs facing the same way!

I have used both the Thumb Protector and the Easton Turbo Slot batting gloves. I prefer the gloves over the protector. Both do about the same thing. You will never have any Rule Book or Umpire problems with either one of them.

Plus they don't look as silly as having two knob cuffs on one bat!

What's the difference between the knob cuff and just wearing Easton Turbo Slot Batting Gloves?

Discussion: Time to eliminate senior bats


From reading some of these posts, like any 12 year old instantly becomes a home run hitter are highly over exaggerated.

Having played outfield for many years, I have a question for you that think home runs are only because of the bat.

My question is:
If a batter using a BPF 1.20 legal bat is hitting the balls on average 200 feet then how far will that same batter, hitting the same balls, hit the balls on average using any legal senior bat?
300 feet?
400 feet?

I can tell you that at 200 foot hitter with a 1.20 bat will only make me back up a few steps in the outfield if I know that same hitter is using senior bat.

All bats are tested and have to meet performance standards set forth by the softball organizations and the bat manufacturing industry. The difference between BPF 1.20 and BPF 1.21 is only 1/100. Which means that the senior bats are about 1% more lively than non senior bats.

It's the Magician not the Wand!

I know of several hitting timing mechanisms that seem to work well.

Some guys do a toe tap like Chipper Jones and Sammy Sosa used to do.

The Demonstration Bats look and feel great!

Like the Lap Dancer can only enjoy her for a few minutes but you can't have her.

She's just a tease.

taits

Thanks for the tip about using old alloy bats for the cold weather. It is for that reason there is no need to buy a GSC bat if they are sold in the last few months of this year. I can't see any reason for buying a GSC bat in October or November and not be able to use it until spring 2014. Also since GSC announced that their bats are approved I have had to buy 2 replacement bats for bats that broke.

STILL WAITING!!

Speaking of GSC....

Is their warranty voided if the bat is used in temps under 60 degrees?

If so, by the time the GSC bats are released (Sept/Oct)and delivered, many parts of the country will be too cold to use them. Maybe I'll wait until spring before considering buying.

Discussion: Infielders; do you wear a cup?


I can't think of anything more ridiculous than watching some guy rolling around on the ground, in pain, holding his crotch because he thinks he's too good or too tough to wear a cup. It stops the game and wastes time.

Discussion: EYE BLACK

In the last 50+ years.

I have seen Magnets come and go.

I have noticed Necklaces come and go.

And have seen other things come and go.

I don't know if Eye Black works or not, but it's still being used today. I would think that with that long of history in sports, there is some benefit from it's use.
