Topic: Bats
Discussion: Best Softball Bat

OK the new bats that have come out : Rip it Senior (black), Combat A/V discussed here I'm sure are good bats. But it seems like the bat of choice seems to come back to ASA legal Easton Synergy cnt flex. There must be some reason why a bat holes its price from $249 to $299. Even though the break in period is a little long. Once broke in watch out. The bat seems to hold in value and does not crack as much as the other bats. Just an opinion.

The bat is for ASA tournaments. The ratings are confusing but the player s who use it may have more info.

Discussion: miken 484

Has any oneone used the Miken 484? Are there any pros and cons? I'm not a power hitter but do hit line drives that find gaps. I know there are alot of claims out there from manufacturers. Also what is the difference in the camo 484. Thanks.

Discussion: xtension cataputt bat

Have any of you senior softball guru's be hitting the cataputt by akadema? ASA approved, with a price tag of $350. Need input and not from manufacturer, to put this price tag in place. Others probably would be interested too!

Discussion: New ASA black Rip-it senior bat review

I understand that distance is a issue. How did the ball come off the bats when hit in general with each bat? The answer I'm looking for is dealing with line drive threw the infield and between outfielders. The 2 USSSA bats were?

Discussion: Injury at the Winter Worlds

I understand about the fields but how about the lights? I understand that a team refused to play because of the bad lighting at cheyenne or was that not a problem either.
I also agree with the comment about any one team could have taken the AAA division. But give credit where it is due to the teams that did end up on top.
While on the subject, how did a team in the 60 AA division end up with 3 or 4 Tharaldson players on it. I guess they still could not win, but still how?

Discussion: Las Vegas Winter Worlds 06

Checked out SSUSA web sight and was refered to Arizona Charlie's and Boulder Station for room reservations. I was informed that there was a cut off date by the hotels when I called. My question is why didn't the web sight inform us that there was a cut off date for reservations at the noted places to stay. Hope there are no last minute reservation to be made by other teams. Good luck at finding a reasonable room rate.

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: entered dugout after touching first base

The ruling is that if a batter- runner or baserunner during live play enters the dug out by stepping in or on the line of the dug out, they are out. The only time this is not called on a regular basis is when a runner going to third and runs through and cant stop and enters the dugout.

Discussion: ratings

Since the controlling body,SSUSA,can not judge properly the ranking system to the satisfaction of teams and the issue is of importance. Let the opposing managers judge the competition. A flyer with a name of the team being ranked, the name of the team ranking and a simple higher, same or lower area to be marked after every game.The flyer to be turned into the umpire who in turn turns it in to the tourn. director. I think that with in the following year a truer ranking will be realized. Do not underestimate the opposing managers honesty and observations its much better than the SSUSA's.Yes there will be a few misses in the ranking due to personal issues,BUT not as many as there are NOW.The tourn. will be stronger and just as competitve.Maybe, just maybe we can put this issue to sleep and find another one.

Discussion: CHEATERS or NOT?

Here is another one for the LV tourn. AKA SSUSA. We were a AA 55 team wishing to play in the AAA 55 division last year in order to hit home runs. We new we were cometitve but did not have the guns to take it all. We talked to Sacramento prior to entering and go the ok. We arrived in LV and attended the meeting and at that time were told we were now playing in the AA div. and either had to give up 5 runs or allow 11 fielders. The jest of the whole thing is now we were playing teams we played competetively through out the year at other tourn in the 55AA bracket and now had to give them 5 runs to start because we were now considered a AAA 55 team. The toun dircter and staff when asked to change us back said "to bad". We came in as a AAA team.
We stayed and played in the winds and got laughed at by the other teams we had played before. We did not even attemp to play this year and am glad to here some of the same crap is going on this year. Now maybe if enough teams pull out or let the director in Sac. and other members of his so called staff know how we feel something might get the attention of future entrants. We love the game but hate the politics that have now entered SENIOR SOFTBALL.
