How about buying a bat with them? Maybe some retailer or whom ever may take them.
I'd think a retailer would honer them if they sell the Reebok bat you have.

Understand the situation. My thought on it is that the rules committee needs to address the problem(s) left out but the play stands as called.
Good example of 20\20 hindsight.

Discussion: What Bat?

I'd start looking for that answer at where ever you can find who actually tested and certified that bat for which ever assn your concerned about.
But which ever ball (s) make it there is always the user in real life situations that actually ply with it in games and not a machine that takes the swings.
First off It's the user not the ball or bat. they are accomplices as it were for collateral damage or performance.
Don't know the Freak 52 but did use a Bal Freak DST I have, but it's got 9 cracks in it.

Discussion: New Ford F-150 FX4

Dave,
Maybe, Maybe not, those cars are not daily drivers either.
I sure would not like a new one to break down on a trip (if this it the one) and have to worry about getting some place on time....

Never been a Nascar buff, I was street racer back then. The SCJ and 64 Vette.

At least they have a good ride. But lousy warranty across the vehicle spectrum like many other makers.
Two of my favorite cars were Fords, a 67 and a 69 428SCJ Mustang.

Magnesium deficiency is the hidden cause of leg cramps. Mayo clinic research.

Check the net. Many bat seller places sell used bats as well as on Craig's List & Ebay.
Good luck in your quest for one.

Not unlike the 'fly ball' that is 'dropped' to make a double play.

That is a rule breaker they don't enforce.

If that is the blue one I used it a week ago and found it very good. That said it only had maybe 60 hits on it and we were breaking it in. I heard 3 different sounds from it when hitting. I mentioned it to the owner and he agreed. A good bat none the less.

Heck the batter has 40 inches to move in front of the plate, how much run up room does one need?
Play the other assn with the strike zone, they are all over.
All I can say is that it's about time they called them.

I believe that had the metal knob on it and if so I've seen a couple being used at the last two events I was at. I never had one but did use one a few times but didn't care for it.

Discussion: Pitching masks revisited

Pricer, I'm with you on that however the bandaid on a wound would not solve it, it will continue to open along the way.
Give the pitcher some leverage as I mentioned, Quit adding problems for him to worry about and changing his rules.
Again make the rule makers play 'pitcher' for a long bit. Only one does I know of Mr. Ruth.

Sparky.1.. No they do care... some. Just as long as you keep coming. But it is about $, err money. And in a way it also needs to be ...???
The read this every day, all day, all of it.

Neck10,
Perhaps that should be a mandatory thing...all board members should be required to pitch one full major tournament. If not for any other reason than they could say did it. With hear gear of course.

There is nothing like first hand experience.

I liked your idea above.

Pricer...
What's changed? Wake up. The equipment, primarily the bats
It's been a hitters game for over a decade.
Put some real pitcher input into the game and give teams some Defense back.
1. Raise the height limit at least 4 feet. (to 16)
2. Allow some pitcher moves other that whirlwind which I know they won't go for.
IE, around the back, under the leg & step off to the side which some do now anyway.
Any or all of those will not lengthen game times. It just gives the pitcher another pitch to throw.

On the bats...I prefer composites to the alloys, & as long as their allowed I'll use them, as will the vast majority of players using them now. However it rules changed back to alloys and 47\525 balls that's ok too.
