Discussion: Major Plus

65 Major Champs, 1st American who beat Tharaldsons, did move up. The core of that group went to 70 Major+. Tharaldsons also got moved back to 65 Major+ after a runner-up finish. Ruth was gone quite a bit earlier at the Worlds.

Fragile Senior bats in general don't like wet and heavy or just heavy balls. Cage balls are great way to ruin your bat, the balls are generally very heavy.
With 20 swings on it, send it back, I'd be surprised if they didn't warranty it.

kndkcook, don't have any of the things you are looking for, but must have played against your dad in the mid 80's. We traveled from Portland OR and played them in a big tourney in Modesto CA. Don't remember the guys, but very hard to forget team name, "Screw Magazine".
Good luck in your search for his memorabilia.

CRUSADER, I thought that's what SPA did with Major+ teams with small brackets, move them to the next youngest bracket. Didn't The FL Legends (70 Major+) get shoved into 65 Major+ last year? Shouldn't they have been too old also?

Perhaps you 3 could enter in 60 Major+. That should make a larger bracket with good competition.

4X4 I have found the opposite; 2 things that have killed my composite bats are wet, heavy BP balls.

Discussion: Senior bat 1 year warranty

There is not any warranty. When questioned, they warranty the bat for manufacturers defects, not for breakage.

uda, night games become a problem in lots of cities because of the leagues that have the parks scheduled during those evening hours. Sometimes our schedules "have" to be worked around those various Parks and Recreation Depts.

I don't think Omar was whining or complaining, in as much as he was asking for what the SSUSA rule was. Like bats, ratings, and age requirements, pitching is another part of the game all most guys want is an even playing field.
His question was not a TD or umpire question, but one of what a stated rule actually says about a certain movement of feet pre-delivery. Honest question.
There are a vast majority of us that follow the rules and choose to play by them out of fairness to others. That would include trying to play on a properly rated team, pitching within the rulebook, and with legal bats.

What mad dog said..............plus, if you can walk up a step, will it stop there or go to 2 steps, or 3 steps? What about the speed of the step, or steps? If you go outside the pitchers box with just a toe touching the back line and run up 3 steps, you can imitate a U-Trip pitcher; you will appear to be charging the batter................is that where you want to go?

JDub-I don't see your connection of bats to what has be asked here about pitching rules.

Marv- Got a bud in Palm Springs that's selling the Monsta's, and swears by them. Perhaps I need to get one and come over your way with the team and bang away.

Vegas race was fantastic; we snuck away with a win in Comp and Best Engineered.....................No Rick Houser, I looked for him.

Hemi racer---Jim DeFrank's hemi is on the market, you guys must be chasing him out of the hemi battles.....................

Discussion: Softball Situation in Oregon

Call Ron Boley, Portland Parks and Recreation, head of softball at Delta Park Complex, 503 823-8566. He'll hook you up with who you need to contact. In Eugene, you've got 100 mi drive to play in Portland, or 180mi to play in Medford. There is some softball in Salem and Eugene, Ron will hook you up with the people. Tell him "the pizza man" sent you...................
Enjoy Oregon...

Discussion: Tired of breaking bats

HJ, although I agree with most of what you are saying, and agree with types of swing, when I talk about the swings on the Legacy, it was by a whole lot of bangers, prolific HR guys. Although some of them, like Paul Salow, do hit below or above the exact center and avoid the direct square impact, the multitude of swings put on mine after I bought it were extremely strong hitters, HOF guys, known for power. Many, many of those swings were direct centered blows. The Legacy, to me, seems to defy those circumstances...............I'm on my 3rd one, all were extremely long living.

Swing, your observations and thoughts are same as mine, including greedy Co's and paying for bats that lasted all season.
