Hi Alan-Sorry to see Team 1 Sports left the tournament early. Miami Power won 50 Gold over Levin Financial. The fans here enjoyed watching Jose and Ozzie Canseco play. Other winners were 50 Silver-Talon Wealth Mgmt., Men's 60-Yard Dogs over Hollis Appraisals, and Men's 65-Beef O'Bradys. Good luck with your team. Bud

Hi Jac-I'm playing against Tony's team tomorrow at 8a.m. He picked up a couple of Villagers to play with the Streaks. Tom Farrell and Tom McGann are playing shortstop and middle infield. Two good players. See you soon.

Hi Alan-my team played at Saddlebrook today and your team was at Buffalo Glen. Tomorrow it should be just the opposite. I will definitely look you up on Sunday. Good luck.

Discussion: remedies for arthritis

I used to hit out of a crouch with knees bent until recently I started experiencing pain in the knees. I was also having back problems due to trying to wind up and explode the hips through the ball. I now stand straight up in the batters box with an open stance facing the pitcher. This way my hips are already open a bit. As a result, my knees and back feel much better. I don't know what grip you use on the bat, but lining up the knockin knuckles and laying the bat across the fingers and holding it loosely in your hands might relax your fingers. I also take alleve and ibuprofin before each game. I hope this helps. Good luck.

Discussion: You make the call part 643

Hi stick8-If the shortstop runs to third base or throws to third base for force out ,for third out ,the run would not score, In the case of a tag play,if the run scores before the tag,the run should count. Good question.

Discussion: Play at first

Hi Webbie25-You make a good point that the players are inexperienced. As stick8 says-this is a good reason to have two first bases.

Sorry-should be baseman, not basement.

Discussion: Play at first

I think the first basement who has his foot in the middle of the bag while taking a throw could be called for defensive interference. The batter/runner is entitled to step on first base. Some common sense should prevail,as the first baseman's foot on top of the bag is posing a risk of injury to both players.

Discussion: Another You Make The Call

The appeal would have been made after the play was over.The runner who left early would have been called out and the run would not count if I was the head umpire.

Discussion: Another You Make The Call

If an appeal was made and the umpire saw the play and ruled the runner on third left early, the runner is out, the inning was over and the resulting rundown was inconsequential and the run would not count.

Discussion: safety masks

We had a bad injury in our rec league. 50 and over age. One of our pitchers was hit in the face with a line drive. The mask he was wearing was plastic and shattered. He sustained cuts to his face (12 stitches) a broken orbital bone and a detached retina. He has lost vision in his left eye. I know some pitchers will not wear masks, and that is up to the individual player. But if you pitch and wear a mask make sure to get the best you can,whatever the cost. It seems like some of these plastic masks are unsafe. Stay safe and good luck to all.

Discussion: Lower Back Pain Home Remedies

I have found that Bio-freeze gel helps ease the pain. I would suggest wearing a back support when taking batting practice. If the pain persists, you might even open your stance a bit to take some strain off the back. Ibuprofin is good. I always carry some in my bag. Good luck.

Discussion: Combat Twilight bat users

A player on my team recently bought a Combat Twilight and another guy bought a Combat Ambush. Both are now back to using their Mikens. They are using the combats for BP. Mikens and Reeboks are the much preferred bats in my league. I wonder if the P413 will hit with them?

Topic: Bats
Discussion: Illegal bat

It sounds like your senior league uses single-wall bats only. If this is the case ,the bat would be illegal. It would be legal down here in Florida or in any state that allows double-wall or composite bats. If you play tournament ball , you can use it. I believe there are also some single-wall bats that are considered too hot for some senior leagues. That might also apply to your league. Hope this info helps. Good luck.

Discussion: Bat confusion

You can google Kelly sports and check the bat reviews and prices. I prefer the U2 max load. I find it outhits the Centenarian by about 25 feet off a batting tee. My second choice is the Melee legend. Good luck.
