Discussion: NEW Miken Senior bat (You might want to read this one !)

After reading about all your bat testing I have noticed you have not rated any bat as a waste of money. Why is that?

Discussion: Hitting from tee vs. hitting pitched ball

Probably Not Much...
The pitched ball will resist the bats forward swing momentum much more than the ball just setting on the tee.

Discussion: Bat physics/dynamics question


From what I have learned by using a Bat Speed Meter is Yes the balanced bat is a bit faster by about 2 to 5 MPH faster which is probably not enough speed increase to make any big difference.

I hear people using the word "Faster" but they never answer the question of "How much faster?"

Discussion: Sore Toes

I can now report that I HAVE NOT experienced any sore toes lately.
So it seems that tieing my shoe laces as shown in the video has solved my problem. Or at least relieved the problem a great deal.

k man
Thank you for your information and help.


PS
My toes also want to thank you!

Discussion: Sore Toes

Today I played ball with my shoes laced as seen in the video. They were my Reebok running shoes. I can report that my toes did not get sore.

On Thursday I will try wearing my Boombah shoes laced as in the video and see what happens to my toes.

k man

I JUST LEARNED SOMETHING ABOUT TIEING SHOE LACES!

I alway wondered what those second holes were for.
Thank you, thank you for the info.
I will tie my shoes like that when I play ball tomorrow and I hope it solves my sore toes problem.

Thanks for the info.

I forgot to mention that it seems that the middle 3 toes on each foot seem to hurt more than the big or little toes. Also I forgot to mention I play outfield and run bases for other guys 2 to 4 times a game.

Any distance runners out there?

Discussion: Sore Toes



Something I have been noticing more in the last few years is I have been getting sore toes during a game. It seems that my toes ram into the inside front of the shoe making them sore in the last few innings of the game. I feel the toe soreness on both feet. I wear different brands of shoes Boombah, Mizuno and even Reebok running shoes. It doesn't seem to make any difference. My foot size is 10.5 and the shoes are 11's. Should I go to 11.5's? Wear two pairs of sox?

Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated, especially from my sore toes!

On second thought....

I doubt plastic fences would hold up in all the strong winds that blow through the river valley..

Bad Idea!

It is possible that temporary plastic fences could be put up in the outfield at 300 feet.\

Discussion: Not HAPPY with Bats Unlimited!

So let me get this understood.

Did BATS UNLIMITED turn the bats over to FEDEX on time as per your order?

According to Mike just making contact at any part of the ball with that sticky substance on the bat will make the ball exit like a hard hit knuckle ball?

Discussion: Does This Make Sense??

I think that as a person gets older their twitch or high speed muscles decline. Which would explain why there are less home runs in the older age groups. Even though a person is just as strong they lose the higher speeds due to age. So it would be possibe that the higher speeds you once had with the lighter bat will decline to about the same speeds as a heavier bat as you get older.

Discussion: HELP---I just don't get it!


Can anyone explain to me how a tacky bat barrel makes any significant difference to the bat/ball contact?

I can't understand how a bat/ball contact being so fast that the human eye can't see it, is in anyway changed.

If there is a major difference in performance in ball flight, then how did the bat get approved?

You are absolutely correct!

And to think they did all that by entering the playoffs as a Wild Card team without the advantage of being "home team".

If being the home team is such a big deal.....

Then explain why is the KC Royals and SF Giants are still in post season?
