Thank you for the clarification.

Discussion: East vs West National Championship game

The only reason to play in the Eastern would be to compete for the Triple Crown, being seeded one or two would not apply since in most brackets there were not five teams.......staff is this a correct assumption.

Discussion: Western Nationals - Who's Playing?

Eastern does not appear to have the competition coming, see only 2 Majors and 1 Major Plus.in 60 and 65. Staff, when is the schedule coming out for the 65's and with small field will we be held for three days.....plenty of fields with only 20 teams in all brackets from 65-85.

Discussion: Pitching masks revisited

Andy, this seems to confirm my concerns for pitchers with the DBO rule, I am sure you know when you throw any pitch middle or outside its coming your way, I would never suggest anyone is trying to hit the pitcher but they are simply trying to get a hit and keep it in the park. I would like to hear your opinion on this based on your extensive experience.

I am playing in a tournament this weekend with this rule and its seems the pitcher has had much more activity than previous events with the old rules, fortunately no won hurt YET.

Discussion: Indoor batting practice balls

Hey Harry, how are things coming along with your shoulder? As to the ball I would recommend based on our last sessions of BP the 44/375 should be fine for you indoors.....LMAO. Harry the ball your looking for is the Total Control Ball 82, www.totalcontrolsports.com...708.486.5800.

Look forward to seeing you at the TOC, safe travels and Happy Holidays to you and Terri.

Congradulations to the Syracuse Merchants for winning the 60 Major, we took them to the if game but they dominated us and deserved the win, best of luck in Vegas representing the East.

Discussion: North Carolina 60 Looking For Tournament Team

Live in Ashevill, NC looking to gets some tournament reps. Would like to play Major or high level AAA in 60 age bracket, would consider 55 if someone is short. My position would be first base and outfield, run well and hit around 750 with occasional power around 15% HR's. Play FHC in 60 and 50's this year and will play in championships in December also playing in Villages October tournament.

If anyone is short or needs a fill in please contact me at 828.260.2130 or t.johnston@charter.net. Stats available and thanks in advance for any consideration.

Topic: Bats
Discussion: Miken's defective bats

I have heard all the durability issues with Miken, why is everybody putting up with this.. for an extra 10 feet!!!
I have Combat Centanarin with 700 hits and it hammers it. I will mishit mine and blow it by any infielder and hit it 330' so why put up with the durabilty issues.

Bottom line if you want to pay for the minimal extra performance....do it and stop the complanimg.

There are options but as long players don't make the Miken's and Reebock's of the world accountable for durability.. why would they
modify their action. REVENUE DRIVES DECISIONS, MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION AND THAT WILL FORCE THEM TO DO THE SAME.

Discussion: We're simply amazed it's come to this...

It appears that they have been given numerous opportunities to change their rhetoric. It also seems like the majority has heard enough......if you have the ability SOLVE THE PROBLEM. Once problem, solved players with good intentions can continue to respectfully debate without the rambling chatter.

Discussion: Looking to Join 60's Tournament/Travel Team

I'm 62 years old and live in Asheville, NC. Just got started back playing again last year in rec. ball. Played in a senior tournament and enjoyed experience and would like to get back to travel ball, would like one to two tournaments a month.

I play 1st base and possibly some outfield, deecent speed, hit around 750 in rec. with some HR's. If anyone is intersted please give me a call to discuss at 828 260 2130 or 828 898 8438.

I would be willing to travel to show my abilities to play on a competetive team....on my dime. At that point we could both decide if there is a fit.

Thanks in advance for consideration.

Sonny

Discussion: combat centenarian

I'm just getting back into softball, played in two touraments and only have seen one other combat...talked to the guy and he loved his. Seems most guys are using the Ultra's, it would be nice to get some feedback from guys that have used both.

Also the durability on the Combat is to be determined and the Ultra's seem to go around 200 hits, based on what I have read.

I have had mine for 6 weekks and the ball flies off the bat...line drives too hot too handle...HR's 30 feet further than my u trip bat. Played with kids this weekend hit several HR over 350'. Dont't know how compaares to Ultra....all I knoww it explodes off this bat. I'M 62 and hitting with kids....there threating to have me tested.

Based on my reps., which is 500, I would highly recommend this bat.
