No doubt you are the "most easily recognized player" in the Team Picture!

The thought of a "naked cowboy" turns me off!!

The thought of a "senior naked cowboy" makes me want to puke!!

Discussion: Hard time getting ahold of Team 1 sports re: broken Ambush

Gorilla Boy
I have done exactly what you have instructed to repair the loose end cap. In fact I have done it on more than one Combat model. On both the Black Centenarian and the Yellow Combat, I got the same result. Both times, because of air pressure the end caps would NOT stay seated all the way down. So when the glue cured the end cap had a gap from it's fully seated position. After I applied the glue I placed the bat on it's end cap for a few days, but the bats weight did not hold the end cap in the all the way down position. Did you do something to keep the end cap all the way down until the glue cured? Or did you put a small hole in the end cap to allow for air pressure?

Discussion: "Swing Makeover Series" Episode #4 now available on youtube. Connecting the Hips to the Hands for max power and consistency

I like the videos, they are very informative.
I tried that "longer stride" thing like they show in the video. I noticed that the longer stride was causing me to pop up more often, due to the fact that as you spread out your legs farther apart you in effect, lower your whole body causing you to get under the ball more. Also if the stride is too long the hips won't turn as easily. I did not notice any mention of how far your stride is supposed to be.
6 inches?
12 inches?
More?
How far is too far?
Also I've noticed more soreness in my lower back after hitting bp, 60-80 balls. Has anybody else experienced this?

Discussion: Best Pitcher

I have tried to resist adding my 2 cents in this thread.

When the term "The Best" is used, that implies that of all SSUSA member players, there is "no one" in any age group, ability level or sex that is equal to this one person in all the various categories required for that position.

So unless you have seen ALL PITCHERS (for example) in ALL the SSUSA sanctioned events, then it is ridiculous to name anyone as being "The Best".

Discussion: What the #@%& is a BATCH?


So????

1 run = 1 batch = unknown number of bats

Why do I feel like this is some kind of Abbott & Costello dialog?

I keep hearing about a Batch of Bats.

So my question is:

HOW MANY BATS MAKE UP A BATCH?

Discussion: Best leadoff hitter


Even if the lead off hitter gets an extra at bat that don't make him the lead off batter of that inning. Just another batter in the line up.

Discussion: How much difference does an ounce make?


BruceinGa

Interesting theory.
If using weighted batting gloves is equal to the changing the rod in the handle, then it would be conceivable that you now have 2 different bats in one.

Example: you start off with 26 oz end load bat and WALLAH. it becomes most likely a 29 oz. balanced with the use of the 3 oz weighted gloves.

Have you read any of the posts above?

Go to the GSC web site and you will find out that the bats are "Coming Soon" as they have been for the last few years.

What kind of company DOES NOT take purchase orders?

What kind of company DOES NOT advertise?

What kind of company makes promises, like delivery in May and doesn't deliver?

What kind of company only uses a PO Box for a mailing address?

Vinny

Thanks for taking my pitching machine to my truck. I was trying to thank you at the park but I don't think you heard me because of the ear buds in your ears.

I think Leo wants me to bring it again next week.

What's the chances of Sanders being anywhere close to that time 20 plus years later?

A reasonable guess is that Sanders would probably be in the middle to high 5's if he were to run the 40 yard dash today.

Maybe SLOW should get off his computer and go take batting practice.

That way he can find out the answer for himself!
