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!

I still have plenty of room as I just started taking registration a week or so ago. The only thing I would tell guys is to see about coming soon as I got good host hotel rates for Peak tourist season here in Florida but they only give me so many rooms at that price which is about $105. Normally they get $150 and up this time of year so get with me as soon as you can to register for the program. There are also some very good rates on flights into Orlando right now that you can take advantage of. Just an FYI...any of you RV guys there are two nice spots CLOSE by the fields so bring your Rv and drive down . If you don't have one...get a few guys to chip in for the ultimate softball road trip!

BIG SPRING TRAINING NEWS FLASH ,!,!

I am thrilled to announce an addition to our already stellar Advisory Staff for the Spring Training program in Vero Beach. It's a guy maybe a few of you have heard of....lol

Thrilled to announce Mighty Mike Macenko will be joining us as an instructor and will also be doing a lecture with me on the Mental Aspects of becoming a Great hitter. I was fortunate to play against Mike for many years and with him a couple of times back in the day. He is truly the Babe Ruth of softball and he will be invaluable to each player that he works with during our program. You definitely don't want to miss out on this program if you are serious about improving your game or if you just want some fun in the sun in Florida before the season kicks in.

Mario,
Curt has said that he will not be doing Classic Spring Training this year for a variety of reasons. That is one reason I put together my new camp in Vero Beach this year. I would love to have you and any of his former campers down at our Spring Training in Vero Beach March 27-29th.

Discussion: BATS COMPARE

Umbach,
A very good question. A lot of guys who loved the original red one piece end load would say it's the hottest bat ever. My personal opinion is agreeing with them FOR THAT TIME PERIOD. However, my testing experience shows the White Miken 2 piece Max to be consistently among the very best at performance against any of the current models of senior bats.
Please note:....
I think a lot of players felt this way about the red one piece because it was known to break in very quickly and achieved high performance levels as quick or quicker than any senior bat and that certainly influenced them. When the white 2 piece Max was introduced, it did not have that quick break in period at all but....2 more model years into it and I think you will find the White Max now breaks in easily and it's performance is truly outstanding. All in all at this time I believe the white 2 piece Max to be the superior bat especially considering it has a better track record in durability as well and is certainly among the very top in senior bats. As far as the Freak Black goes...that's a totally different animal and it's certainly the best workhorse senior bat out there right now and has a WARRANTY. It will take you several hundred cuts to get to it's high performance levels and one of my test bats now has over 2100 swings on it and it's still going. The white Max will have better performance earlier and reaches the very top levels of any senior bat. The Freak Black will take a while to match that...
Hope this helps and if you have any more questions please contact me.

Yeah ...always thinking, always thinking. I got sucked into that dumb mall myself yesterday. I WAS THINKING I could use a new pair of running shoes for a good price. When I left I had NO RUNNING SHOES but I spent $300 on pants and dress shoes! So now I'm THINKING.....
Where did I go wrong? ,!

Discussion: NEW Miken Freak Black Senior bat with a 1 year warranty

Old Stool, now that's funny but can you hit a softball 2100 times with the brick phone and it not break like the Freak Black has done? Lol
If you can I might be tempted to buy one!

The cost for the weekend including the banquet is $225 and you can save $25 by paying in full by the end of December. Otherwise you can reserve your spot now for $125 and pay the balance of $100 by the end of January. Extra banquet tickets are available for the discounted price of $25 for spouses or friends. The banquet will be a awesome menu plus a informative seminar.
IMPORTANT NOTE: For those of you with concerned spouses or girlfriends this may get you your ticket to come....The host hotels are located literally in the parking lot of the famous VERO BEACH OUTLET MALL. if your spouse googles that, she may very well be the one who calls me to register YOU for the weekend and comes along for a fun weekend with you. $200 for your entry pales in comparison....LOL
I will say this again, get your rooms quickly as this is one of the busiest times in South Florida and hotels fill up. Look forward to seeing you there.

Update:
We just added 2 more members to our Advisory Staff

Carlos Wade: former Professional player and perennial All Star who will be entering the 60 division. Watch him become one of senior softballs premier home run hitters in the 60's but come to camp and let his extensive hitting skill knowledge help you become a better hitter.

Chris Wilson: still a 40 year old young buck but Chris has been a Conference level player for years. His coaching skills and dedication to the science of hitting makes him a great instructor. He will be a great asset in helping you hone in footwork and defensive skills too.

Wait till I post the most important thing: the menu at the banquet ! For you guys that know me I believe life is too short to eat subpar food. The banquet will be just as outstanding as our Advisory Staff.

Don't miss out, call me at 561-718-7504 to reserve your spot.

Hemi,
I'm not quite that high tech yet! My website is good evidence of that! When guys call me to register I will send out their forms to them. Btw: for you guys that have already registered I will start emailing forms most likely on Monday.

Registration opens tomorrow? You can call me to reserve a spot and I will email you a short registration form so I have a little background about each player and if there are some specific things they want to try and work on or if they just want to come for some good overall workouts and instruction. This will help me and the other coaches get some familiarity with the players before camp and will allow us to help them better. I have 2 host hotels and several restaurants and bat companies lined up helping to sponsor the event. I'm happy to speak with anyone in detail and or take registrations.
