Discussion: Dudley ... Reebok

I too bought an Ambush when they first came out. I used it in bp and was really impressed with the distance, rivaling with the distance of the Dudley.
I was anxious to see how it would do in our first tournament of the year. Never got to see that, it broke with only 100 swings.
Now I look of durability first and as long as the bat has even average pop I'll buy it.
My first two Dudleys each had 1200 swings, I'm satisfied with that.

It sounds as if Alan is giving his personal guarantee on this bat! ;)

Topic: Players looking to join a team
Discussion: Please Pick Me Up

Wayne, 15 years ago I didn't think that I would like the draft system but I have changed my mind. I thought I would like playing with my buddies but after a few years you get to know most of the players on other teams, through league or tournament teams.
There still are a couple of teams that don't win much but it is because the coaches don't do their homework on new players.
We have also discussed splitting us in to 49-57 and 57+ in another league. I would stay with the younger group!
Have fun and talk it over, maybe things will change.

Discussion: Please Pick Me Up

We hold evaluations before our spring and fall seasons. When I first played in the league 15 years ago I didn't think much of the draft method but I found that it makes the teams much more equal. Well, in theory it should. :)
Only new players or ones that haven't played for the past year need attend.

There are several tournament team coaches in attendance also.

Discussion: Looking for a team Smyrna Ga.

I was told that you should show up at Tolleson on July 20. They start the fall season then and should be able to help you.
They only allow ASA bats so there are several "suspect" bats being used in that league.
Hobgood in Woodstock is a much better league.

Discussion: Which Sports Do More Americans Participate In?

I'm thinking those facts don't disclose everything. For instance, Slow-pitch Softball. It is no longer played here in high schools, they have switched to fast pitch.
I would much rather see numbers instead of percentages.

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: ARC OF THE PITCHED BALL

I only pitch in league ball because we use a screen. I've had many pitches called illegal that were, imo, 10'. I don't usually complain (exception is when it should have been strike three) because most times I throw a 16-20 it isn't called illegal. So, I now have the reputation of throwing very high pitches, which, I believe are much harder to hit than a 10' pitch.
I will say that both umpires we use are consistent, allowing 10-20' pitches. I'm ok with that.

Discussion: Hitting from tee vs. hitting pitched ball

My guess from experience, 330+. This assumes you are placing the tee at the optimum(al) position.

Discussion: ARC OF THE PITCHED BALL

As far as our league goes, more pitches are called illegal for being flat than too high.

I will compliment the umpires on their judgment of the arc of the pitches, most were very good.
