paul0784:
I thought the same as you.....There was no intent by the on-deck
hitter to try and interfer. I just cann't find an answer to this in SSUSA Rule Book.

Should have said interference by the on deck batter, causing the ball to go out of play.

Discussion: Thrown Ball

Set-Up: Runners on 1st and 2nd; Batter hits a ground ball into the outfield. The runners have not aquired 2nd and 3rd when the outfielder throws the ball towards the infield. The thrown ball goes through the infield and hits the on-deck player in the foot and goes into the dug out. The on deck batter tried to avoid the ball but it hit his foot anyway. The umpire in this case called the batter out (3rd out) for interference. Was this the right call?

Discussion: Reebok Barrage

I actually sent my Barrage back to Reebok with the info Alan gave me. They then contacted me by phone to inform me they would send a refund check for the full amount in 5 to 8 weeks. The check arrived in less than 2 weeks.

Texas: There are several sites like you mentioned, but they are taking pre-orders only when released.

Some proto's were out for awhile for testing and they were awesome; would be a great addition to an already hot Z family.

My question: Is the appeal play valid, with an umpire advising the defensive team the base was missed?

This happened to be a league game that uses SSUSA rules.

Discussion: Umpire Mistake

Question:
A Base Umpire (mistakenly) made a comment that a base runner missed touching a base; the defensive team then made appeal play on the base missed, and the same umpire called the runner out! This seemed wrong and can find nothing in the rules concerning how this should have been handled.

Ed:
I commend you on the way you are handling the Barrage problem; much better than buyer sending bat back to Reebok and getting a gift card six weeks later.!!!!!!

Discussion: 2nd batch 27 Barrage

Buyer Beware: I purchased a supposedly "2nd batch" 26oz Barrage
as previously noted in this forum; and was pleased. Guess what?
It CRACKED at 121 hits along the barrel just like the originals did. I say no more; but you can guess how I feel about this 2nd batch hype at this time.

Lefty:
I have a 26oz 2nd Run Barrage I bought from Alan; and it openned-up at around 80 hits with very little noticable webbing. At about 100 hits it was as good if not better than my Melee. Would I buy another Barrage.....You bet I would!!!!

Discussion: Reebok Barrage update

Alan:
First let me say THANK YOU for all your time on the phone discussing bats.
The Reissued Barrage you sent me is performing OUTSTANDING; at my age (66) it took close to 75 cuts and then it opened right up. It's hitting just as far as my Melee without a mark on it; and you were correct also in the fact that swinging the Barrage compared to an end-load Melee is not much of adjustment.
Again THANKS for your time............Mike

Discussion: Reebok Melee-What's The Truth?

Let me start by saying I own a Melee/End Load; and overall it's the best senior bat I have ever used; have over 500 hits on it, no breaking some spidering that's it.

Now the questions: There are all kind of stories out there about these bats concerning quality control, where made,newer manufacturing runs versus older,and the possibility that Rebook redesigning the senior Melee later this year and that Rebook just doesn't really care. Anyone know the REAL TRUTH?

Discussion: DeMarini The One

Tri18....I am sure your testing is more scientific; I have found the DeMarini Senior The One (as a two piece bat) stiffer than the one piece bats. Also a hit off the "sweet spot" is not as forgiving as the Reebok. However as mentioned above they both are very close in distance,for me. And remember the DeMarini is a 1:20 bat not a 1:21 like other senior bats.

Discussion: DeMarini The One

HJ.....I have been using the DeMarini "The One" since January and here is the straight from me....(I also use a Reebok Melee End Load) After about 50 hits off tee the end cap came off the DeMarini, I called DeMarini and they took the bat back and repaired ( at no cost to me); now for the positive side....As said above order heavier than you normally use, bat hot after about 30 hits; I am 64 yrs old hit 320'-340' with Reebok and the same with DeMarini
I disagree with Tri18; This is a very good product, well worth the sale prices you can get on it.
