Topic: Website comments

I feel that I need to reiterate that I'm not a paid spokesperson for GSC or for the senior bat, P413. As a result of the video on their web site I've been asked by a few friends if I was promoting the P413. No, I'm not.
I consented to the video filming on the same day that I was able to hit with a prototype (4-5 weeks ago). At the time it was not approved but, as has been reported, now it is. While I have no reason to feel that the bat we used is any different than the one that was approved (in terms of performance), I do not know for certain as the one that we used had no graphics or any printing on it whatsoever. I am not making any insinuations, just merely verifying what I can.
I'm very anxious to hit one with the approval sticker on it... and I'm told that this is just around the corner. When I do I'll give my honest assessment of it.
From what I personally witnessed, the bat we tested performs as well as the red Miken. I was told that it had over 1,000 swings on it but I only personally witnessed 500+... it was still going strong when I left the BP session.
Still, 500+ swings on a high performance bat is impressive! Even more so when you consider the size/power of some the hitters.
As I stated previously, I am impressed with the bat we used and would like to have one even if it's just a BP bat.

Discussion: Please send you thoughts and prayers... for the RUDY FLORES FAMILY...

I wish to clarify my previous post.
I did not intend to leave the impression that I ever had any issues with Rudy personally. What I meant to convey was that, in the late 70s & early 80s,the games were fiercely contested. Rudy's team and our team's battles epitomized this and then some. It was just the way it was in that era.
Rudy was a multi tool player with Bombats and/or with DeMarinis. He did not need a 1.2 bat to play @ the highest level.
If I offended any of Rudy's family or friends I apologize. I have a great deal of respect for Rudy today as I did in our younger days.

Wow! Almost hard to believe. I used to play against Rudy 30+ years ago. Hated him... But only because he was one competitive lil' dude. He was a heckuva player for May Tool and then Class Act. Our teams fought on & off the field... Literally.
As a senior I'd see him and found him to be a very nice persom. I'll keep his family in my prayers for certain.I know that he'll be missed by many.

Discussion: Socks

I have purchased several pairs of dri-fit socks thru Foot Smart. I've been wearing them for 3-4 years now and my feet remain comfortable. I've had no issues like plantar fasciitis.
I prefer the Fox River Triathlon Quarter cuts and/or Wigwams. I initially found them locally but then I had to search for them on line. They run about $9 per pair but seem to last 2 yrs or more.
