Discussion: pitching rules

I notice many guys wearing a full set of catchers gear. Trouble with it is time it takes to put on and take off. Otherwise about the best to use.

Discussion: Bat swing, analyzing it

Seems as though some good info may come from using this gadget. I will look into it again and check the links out MurrayW provided. Bruce thanks for the info on the bat swing weight.

Discussion: gloves on throwing hand

One of those sites, I think 1st one you listed has softball as a link. But they when I asked said none were made for throwing balls. Some show gloves with 'receiver' as part of name. Personally I think the tacky or stickiness might cause ball to move in a direction not intended at release point.
Perhaps one with top portion of fingers cut would help there though like weight lifters gloves. I use one primarily for extra padding for glove palm.

Discussion: gloves on throwing hand

Sent off a couple inquires and haven't found the Sandman site but Cutter and Saranac do not make gloves for throwing.
I doubt you'll find one cause focus in on grip.. IE bat holding and ball catching as in football.
But replied back to these two, and awaiting to see if they know of a co that does make them.

Discussion: GSC Bat - Status

Jason, Steve, et al,
Most of what I wrote was passed to me to do...I did not do not have access to Dr Brants web site or I would have check figures which I now know were inaccurate.
I apologize for that.
As for the two events listed that would apply for them as well since the length issue was incorrect. Again, I apologize.

As I have stated before I do hope you get it produced but we all know the time keeps moving up and has always made me wonder and when I got the note with the info I jumped on it, and did so wrongly but had no way to check there.

Question posed to me on note was about the length & I took it as written. Again wrong.
I am Sorry for the stress it caused. That all applies to SSUSA as well.

Bottom line....do not hold your breath.
Even IF it comes to pass after almost 5 years now, it's not in production or sure wasn't last I knew in Nov of 13 so I'd think the new rule would cause a rethink on certification. Or it should. IMHOO

LA get a vast amount of stuff out of AZ either water and or Electricity. Both try to get each others stuff as it were. Fire is raging in foot hill area around Glendora.
Got the restrictions here also I believe. I haven't watered but once this year none last months before that.
I remembered your moniker.

Discussion: Back and or neck fusions

Am wondering if any older players 65 up like where I am have undegone this lower back L 3,4,5 or combo there of... and say the C7 in neck.
May be facing this* in a month or two. * at least the back & probably neck later.
I believe I read someone has had it wondering how long it took for recovery and playing ball again...as well as down side info to it... I've put it off cause I's rather 'play' in pain but it's affected other parts now. I fear.
Thanks

I hope your doing all you can to protect your homes if your living in foothill areas. It's going to be a nasty fire year with the drought conditions we have. LA already has a big one going on and I believe there is another up north of me. Fire breaks of 20 feet are too small (narrow) and the winds moves them much farther. You have those nasty Santa Ana's going all the time. Those rocky areas are a bitch.
Knock the grass down as best you can and remove it, All it does is fuel the fire should it reach it. Not much is going to grow in a drought anyway.

Winning IS possible, they just do not see the light of day, err courtroom drama as it were... most all are out of court settlements.

Her is an example of lawsuits that will likely get dismissed.

And it's in Sacramento, that's coincidental. lol

I pitch, been hit, have hit other pitchers or runners. it hurts...
I wore gear on my legs because of that got an abscess and almost lost it and ball never broke the skin. So I use for protection not fear. I doubt anyone is stupid for wearing gear, and if they want to pitch at a SSUSA event it's required just like the entry fees, or you can stay home and not play even if you choose to go and then watch. Evolution of bats and dumbing down balls will continue and the associations make money on that as well. so it will continue for fund coffee money...lol.
Lawsuits are a fact of life but till the last couple of years was odds against an injured player.
Aha the joys of blogging.... Couldn't help but notice the thread from the guy with juiced or illegal bats I posted to got deleted....lol. So it's all is alive and well, but then you know that. If you just open the pages on the web and look but the assn's ignore it and the who's doing it.
