Discussion: WHO ARE CURRENTLY THE MOST POWERFUL HITTERS IN SENIOR SOFTBALL

the wood,
to quote: Did anyone bother to tell those guys to not be so egocentric? If they did it would have monopolized the threads for quite a while.

Doing so would cause a post battle of wits (lol) and likely get deleted as would the other sentence. some already vanished.
You bring up some good points though.
Stay healthy.

Discussion: Player needs team for AZ Winter World

There are quite a few teams in those age ranges in your boarding states that attend it at times. You should call them first.
If your not sure who they are, check past records here.

Robo,
It could save about 5-6 minutes.
Not as ludicrous an idea as the imposed flip-flop rule though.

Discussion: Is there a site with player stats?

None I am aware of. It's hard enough to get scores from the associations let alone about 12x that for stats.
Why don't you start one.... it would keep you busy.

Agree on both posts about the bats, however, as long as their making money they will continue until the dust settles should someone get killed.
ASA allows senior bats in senior events. Balls vary in them also.

Caps signify yelling..period. Honestly...try using the VIEW at top of the screen, drop down to ZOOM IN tab and increase font size. You can increase the font size so a person that uses a \red\white can\could read them.
Doubt you are in such bad shape though.
Enjoy Senior ball, it's a hoot.

Marv,
Am well aware of which changed did what and for the why. Huff Puff, I'm almost to first.... Help, I need a runner blue.
Remember the moves in base lined over the years (decades) for them as well. By the time we retire, lol, they will likely be at 75. Possibly with the mound at the 60 limit as it is.
Understand the 'time' (did all that) but players are paying through the 'nose* for it, and the takers of that are living on OPM. And that IS what it is all about, more of it.

*gonna have to cut back on that crack stuff. my noise is going through withdrawals.
lol
I read good things about your events. But as far as the 12mph ball goes, I believe if it arcs at 6' level its legal as song as the delivery to the release point was legal.

So how did that questionable ball play out you emailed me about for the other event?

While this has been brought up more than a few times, both those issues mentioned are valid but there are others also. CR's for one, on deck batter not ready, arguments on bad calls or injuries which thank God, are rare, & probably a few I forgot.
I'm against it. It's another item that cuts the game from where it originally was,

They have taken away runs or all kinds, time to play a full game, players choice of wearing protection or not, and more.
Given few safety rules some of which were changed more than once.
Increased distances for base running and pitching.
And fee cost, well it's up there.
But over all it is still good and we continue to attend.

But you do as far as a players AGE is concernedpt. 18, 2014

Two others are 2015 events that play out this year as well. Taken from staff post Sept.18
The Winter World's and Winter National's are 2015 Season events, requiring a player card valid through at least the 2015 Season ...

Simply put, it is something like this. That event starts the 2015 season. Thus you need to renew. Do as they say and avoid problems. Shouldn't be too hard.

Topic: Bats
Discussion: the new bat "Nightmare"


A few thoughts:

Saw the pics, read the emails. IMO bat was abused over normal the wear and tear for said time in use. Cap was way out of shape, ie flattened in about 3\4'-1" area with cut like portion and bluish mark on barrel that make me wonder why it's there. No others around. and barrel is white in color. No ground surface scratches did I see either. But then it's a pic, a pictorial shot in time.
I though this bat was yours but I see that it was not. Seemingly strange but then I have done that for others and one rep on here has done that for me...
But I believe for what it may or may not be worth that Kevin gets this round\issue hands down and the owner Mark, seems fine with that.

Get the white Combat Mark mentioned or another Nightmare, I think the better choice.
Move on. Play lots of ball, meet even more players & stay in touch with some of them.
I'm done here.

Discussion: the new bat "Nightmare"

I see it a many ways:
1. It is a likely a NO WARRANTY bat, (I do not know, but most sr bats are) so your out the money if you paid for it. Not a good thing, I know many times over on bats myself.
2. I have probably sent 300 bats by mail from 1999-2007 or so. Only one didn't show up\return to destination. None were damaged in transit. Missing one was actually stolen at the PO in 2003, I think it was.
3. Someone may have had a very bad moment and (for lack if correct wording) rapped the bat on the ground however many times and destroyed the thing as many of us do after a bad at bat or game.
4. I broke my end cap in two in 2012 and called Combat about getting another for a 10 year old bat (Grey one). Person said they no longer made them. Long story short he requested I send it in and he would 'see' what could be done since all caps are same size. (my input to him) I know what he was looking for and didn't bother me. I sent it and got it back in 3 weeks

I think it is all on how you go about things. And getting on tattooball on a no warranty issue isn't smart, imho.
As for pics if you had taken then just before shipping you 'might' have had a case. I do that on most all $$ mailings. That goes for conformation info too.
Good luck playing ball & stay healthy.
Get another one.

Brian,
Kevin DOES SERVICE HIS CUSTOMERS as do many other reps on her, but not all of them do, imo.

Dbax, would also depend on runs scored at the time towards the limit per inning. One walk in is better than multiples either way, if your playing to win.
Not all hit Hr's but if your unsure of the power as it were, walk em. Play it safe as it were.

They make a BLACK Flame model also about 20 more but slightly better also.

Topic: Product review
Discussion: knob cuff advocates

Use on all my bats and feel it helps 'fill the void' in the area between the pinky finger and palm siding when holding the bat. For me it stability holding the bat. Have had them since first introduced over a decade ago.
Have tried most of what's out there too. From one that releases from bat to the 'grooved' types. Some are longer than others but I prefer the cone style.

POP, a 65 team. The team that bailed out a few months ago. Back then I played for PTR.
Yes it's 104 here today. About 50 days in a row w\ triple digits. But supposed to start a cool down tomorrow.
I'll look for you. TD knows me very well.
