Discussion: New 2015 combat centenarian short barrel

Has anyone tested the 2015 combat centenarian short barrel bat? It is silver with blue lettering. I use the white short barrel and really like it but they are getting hard to find at 27 oz. Was wondering if the new bat's performance is the same and if it is the replacement for the white bat. I see that the barrel on the new bat is 10 1/2 inches vice 10 inches.

Discussion: Las Vegas Fields and Umpires

We played at Shadow Rock Friday and the outfield was embarrassing. Weeds and uneven grass throughout. The umpire we had had no idea what the rule was for being out of the batters box or how many bases to award once the ball went out of play. Teams waiting to play were laughing at him he was so bad. BLD was great aside from playing at 4:30 with the sun directly over the pitcher. Hard to see while hitting for both teams. No issues with the umpiring crews at BLD.

Discussion: Reviews for COMBAT DIRTY BAT

I bought two 27 oz. end loaded dirty bats in February. I used one for BP using the tried and true break in method of 25 swings with 50% effort, 25 more with 75% effort and then taking full swings. It broke in very nicely and now am using it mostly for games. I have around 550 swings on it and it is performing great. The other is sitting in my closet. I'll start breaking it in tomorrow.

Discussion: Catcher's verbal interference

Just to clarify, it was in a co-ed league, a female was catching and she was saying "there it is" as the pitch was coming in. This has been allowed for many years by all the umpires and suddenly it is verbal interference?

Discussion: Catcher's verbal interference

Before our game the other day, the umpire told our catcher that they couldn't say anything from the time the pitcher released the ball until it either hit the ground or the batter hit it. By doing so, it would constitute catcher's verbal interference and the batter would be awarded first base. Now, like most of us, I have been playing since I was old enough to walk and we all used to chatter during most every pitch. "Hey better, batter, SWING" was the norm. And that was when a little kid was trying to hit a pitch from another kid who had no idea where his pitch was going.

Any ideas out there?

Discussion: Centenarians review, 13" and 10"

Thanks Allen. The white centenarian is the best bat for the money that I have found for me. I still have a couple left but probably should get a couple more. I'll be in touch.

Discussion: Centenarians review, 13" and 10"

I spoke too soon. In the last 9 days I have broken two of my white centenarians. One broke where the paint was chipped and the other where there was still paint. I had more than 400 swings on both bats and will continue to use them but I have learned my lesson and will use them only in games after they are broken in.

I have 3 white centenarians that are game ready and one in the closet. They are very durable as I have more than 300 BP and game hits on each of the 3. Paint chips are a problem but are only cosmetic. The bat still performs.
