AHHH!, Mr. Gasket (Joe Hrudka) started selling header gaskets out of the trunk of his car.
You guys are getting way back now. And yes Tommy (Mouseketer) Ivo did he have some wild rides or not? I think every boy in my era had a crush on Annette.
Seems all the people and things I grew up with are disappearing.

Curveball, that class has gotten so competitive AND expensive which is way I had to go home.
Those California boys are tough, it's hard to stay with big money. Course Jimmy has so many other cars he runs he won't miss one. Looking forward to seeing some old friends at the Southern Nationals(Atlanta) next month.
If these bats keep going up and belonging to the bat of the month club I may have to go home from softball also.

BOY-O-BOY!! small world sometimes AH. Charley and I are friends and yes he does make life tuff.
I ran out of the Ray Barton shop, but always had a good relationship with Charley. He even shared his trans. guy with me. DeFrank was always tuff when eliminations started. Are the west coast hemis still racing?

Carl, I also wish you still had your cuda. If so I would try to beat you out of it.
I run in the NHRA super stock hemi shoot outs. My car is the Dixie Hemi out of S.C.

Discussion: SSUSA BANNED BATS

Fairly new to senior softball and I see where the Miken Ultra/Ultra 1(orignal Gray Bat)and titanium bats are banned from play.
But I also see where they have banned fast pitch bats from play.
Is there a performance advantage in using a fast pitch bat?

Discussion: Why the low prices on bats?

I guess senior bats are like electronics, they get cheaper as time goes by. After they recoup thier research and development cost.
One other thought, NOBODY is as bad as golfers!

Discussion: new bats

$1000??? I'm tired of spending half that a year for the bat of the month club. These manufactures really know how to work us old guys. There is so much conflicting info out there. And we eat a promise of 10 more feet up.
Guess I'm just as gullible as anybody.

Discussion: ANYBODY SELLING THE YELLOW MM SENIOR GEAR

Playball212, my neighbor has two of the blue MM ones, 28 and 29oz. He is no longer able to play and I'm sure would sell them at a reasonable price. 29oz. not even broke in yet. Just an option if you don't find one.

Discussion: Who is best to buy a new Meele from ?

I see you stated you want a Meele, but Alan @ team1 is the most knowledgeable to make sure you get the right bat to perform to your needs. Also best price I've found.

Discussion: gsc bat latest web site update

B-DUB I'm so sorry for your loss. I am one of the few people who know exactly how you feel. Losing a parent or other family member is terrible, BUT nothing like losing a child.

Would love to encourage you and tell you it gets better with time, BUT it does not. Lost my daughter all most thirteen years ago. It is the first thing you think about in the morning and the last thing at night.

Thanks guys for letting B-DUB and I get a little off the subject here.

Discussion: what's the best senior bat, gave up on the gsc promises.

I agree with Alan(Tri18), our travel team has tried several bats and the reebok seems(at this time)to give best peformance and value for the money.

On the question CAPT D5 had on the heavier bat being more durable, would the heavier bats not have a thicker wall to weigh more? Making them more durable.

Discussion: Miken U2 Performance

Seems we have all had $200 bats that didn't last as long as they should have. Several of us on our travel team have found a trick that so far has worked GREAT. I took out the end plug and found that a swim noodle cut to about 8 inches fits tight inside the bat. Doesn't add any weight to speak of,and I have several hundred swings on a U2 including BP and games. Doesn't seem to affect preformance one way or the other. Couple of other guys have similar results. Don't know if this insert gives the bat a little support or not. Also don't know if this would be considered bat doctoring. I do know this is not very scientific, but seems to work for us.

Yep!, I know, I need to find my noodle, but better than buying a new bat every few months.

Don't know what the current sales numbers are, BUT I do know as the Ul's brake our guys are going to the Reebok by a large margin. Including myself and I am very pleased as to the performance.

Two of our guys purchased Ultra's latley and they seem to perform as always. Still don't last long, but perform good. Does anyone know how to check batch numbers?

I agree Gary. Drag raced for many years in the super stock hemi classes and the faster you wanted to go the more parts failed. As they say, you can't have your cake and eat it to.
