Discussion: Softball Spring Training Program in Vero Beach in March

Bruce,
Vero is indeed a great place. It has a lot of open space yet still has enough development to be attractive. The small downtown and beach area have some great shops and fun restaurants as well. Of course there is much baseball Dodge Blue history there as well. The fields we will be on are immaculate and the county does a great job with them. It's a great opportunity to have some fun in a beautiful area with fantastic March weather.

Discussion: Dudley Lightning 12" barrel

Ed,
I am not disagreeing with you at all overall. I lost over 150 orders (yes 150) orders that were sitting on my desk waiting for bats to arrive. Meanwhile, bats were being circulated here and there across the country and I have had orders in the system since JULY. some of the 200 bats I'm getting early next week are those bats on order since July. However, I am now told that things are changing within the network to alleviate some of this. I'm really not defending anyone here but as always, trying to get out truthful, honest info to the senior guys so they can make an educated decision on what's the best bat for them. The good news in all of this is that we have several top line bats to choose from that deliver very goo performance and durability. Stay warm in the snow...

Discussion: Dudley Lightning 12" barrel

Doc and BBK,
You are both correct in your postings. Demand for Dudley bats has been very high and at first they did not have customer service set up to deal with any problem bats. Now that the program is in full swing Dudley has a better handle on production and customer service. The few bats that I have had issues with recently have been taken care of quicker than the ones initially due to better customer service response. Distribution seems to be a bit better now as I have over 200 bats en route later this week. All in all Dudley seems to making strides in taking care of us senior players. If you have questions you can contact me anytime at 561-718-7504 and I will help you anyway that I can.

Are you asking for the best combination of all three or one bat per category mentioned.

Got you registered. Happy New Years to all the SSUSA players out there. If you want to take it to the next level in 2015, show up for Spring training in Vero Beach in March. I think you and your team will see a new player once the season kicks in....

I am sorry you have had some issues with your other bats. Let me just advise you and other players to give the New Combat Ambush a try before you pass judgement. After 100 swings, I guarantee that you or any player will see the value in the purchase.

Discussion: Miken Triad Blackout

Lefty,
I have tested both bats extensively. One thing worth mentioning is the Blackout is a balanced bat while the Freak Black is a end loaded model so the bats swing differently. The Blackout will give you a LONG life but will take anywhere from 200 to as much as 400 break in swings. After that you can expect a bat you can hit for an entire season and maybe longer. The Freak Black is the next generation in senior bats for sure. It breaks in quicker and delivers fantastic performance. One of my current test bats of the Freak Black now has 2500 yes 2500 swings on it. I should mention that I break most senior bats in the 250-450 swing range. I will be pulling a 27 ounce out of stock around the first of the year for comparison testing. If you have questions about the two or any senior bat get with me.

If by chance you don't know Dale let me just say this. Not only will your softball team be greatly enhanced by his abilities, but more importantly your life will be enhanced by having him around you. Any team in the country would be fortunate to have him.

If you are that lucky to hit 44/375 balls with them you will get seniorish (is that a word?!) performance out of them....

Discussion: non-senior bat question

Oz,
The two best bats I have tested for that application are the Miken Freak 52 and DeMarinis Juggernut. Both were engineered specifically for this ball and are among the most popular for my people. If you have more questions you can call me.

Discussion: Softball Spring Training Program in Vero Beach in March

Hemi,
My guess is there will be guys hitting it farther than me BEFORE camp starts. Since I only weigh 195 pounds, I try and conserve my strength and energy for the next at bat. Thus, I tell all the giant mashers...I specialize in hitting it 310'! Now when you come watch my boy Ed Starcher hit I promise you you will be amazed at the distance he hits the ball for a senior player.
But all things considered, we have an Advisory Staff and Coaches that not only are proficient hitters, but excellent teachers. Everyone of our Advisory Staff has played softball at a professional level and coached as well. And then consider we have
THE BIG CAT Mike Macenko coming who was the most prolific Home Run hitter of all time.....I truly think we have the staff to help ANYONE elevate their game no matter what level of player they currently are. Don't miss this opportunity!
