Topic: Bats
Discussion: Establishing a rationale for the use of senior bats in 18+ leagues...

I know that my friends who play in the Savannah, GA men's league (18+) are allowed to use the senior bats at age 50. But age 60 is a good idea.

As for younger females in the coed league, these females are also playing defense against the 20 somethings who can really rip a ball. Probably a lot harder than a senior with a senior bat. As a pitcher I have had balls hit back at me by the 20 somethings that are hit a lot harder than a senior with a senior bat in an ISSA/SPA/SSUSA tournament.
I am definitely not looking for the 20 somethings to use a senior bat!

Discussion: Establishing a rationale for the use of senior bats in 18+ leagues...

I am a 66 year old senior playing in 2 county softball leagues: (1.) 18 year old and up coed league, and (2.) 18 year old and up men's league. (There is no senior league in our area.)
Both county leagues are ASA bats only. I know of a few similar leagues in other areas that allow age 50+ to use senior bats in the 18+ leagues.
I am attempting to find examples of similar leagues that allow 50+ to use senior bats and establish some rationale for the use of senior bats by 50+ players in both leagues.
Does anyone play in a similar type league as a senior and is allowed to use a senior bat?
Also, can you help me by suggesting some reasonable rationale for allowing 50+ to use senior bats in a 18+ league?
My experience has been that the 20 somethings hit the ball as hard if not a lot harder than a when the senior uses a senior bat.
I am hoping to level the playing field a bit.
Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

Discussion: One pitch

Thanks for the info.
How do you "load" the ball? Balls come back to the pitcher wet early in the morning or later in the evening. Do you just wipe the seam on the ground? What about a dry day?

Two books I really enjoyed: Dr Whacko's Guide to Slow Pitch Softball by Bruce Brown and The Strategy of Pitching Slow-Pitch Softball by Michael Ivankovich. Do you know of any others that are worthwhile?
I also saw two videos: Slowpitch Softball Pitching Video by the PitchMaster (www.thepitchmaster.com) and How to Become a Better Slow Pitch Pitcher by Glove Up. Do you know of any othersthat are worthwhile?

How is the "sponge pitch" delivered? Grip? Stiff wrist? How is it "loaded? Am very interested.
Do you have any other "specialty" pitches? Thanks.
