Crusher, those infielders should wear shin guards and a mask. I wear shin guards.

Discussion: Dudley Lightnings Breaking Under 300 Swings?

Crusher, I received the 28 at the SPA Nationals in Dalton and the 29 I got last fall. We hit before our league games and take bp most days at a tournament. Also, I usually hit 2 or 3 times during a week. The 28 was a demo and I allowed many friends and teammates to use it in games and bp.
As you can imagine, it is tough keeping up with the number of swings.
By your not taking bp you are missing out of 3-400 swings a week, more some weeks.

Why does that not surprise me about SL??

btw, I agree with Webbie about his opinion on major plus players.

Discussion: Dudley Lightnings Breaking Under 300 Swings?

I broke a 12" 28oz and 13" 29el this past March, both had about 2000 swings. I now have a 12" 28oz and a 12" 29oz, both have about 3-400 swings and are not as hot as my first ones. I hear after 4-500 swings they should get better.

Stoney, It is awesome! I was fortunate to be the one to install the phones for the kayaking event at the Olympics.

Discussion: Major plus problem

Same problem here in the Southeast Billy. Our 60 major team will most times play the 55 major or AAA teams.

Discussion: Farms/Gardens

After reading Crusher's reply in the thread "this is for Bogie" I got to thinking, how many here have farms or gardens?
Each spring I plant about 150 tomato plants also have raspberries.
In 2014 I tried several heirloom tomatoes but found they didn't keep long and were susceptible to disease. This year it Sun Gold, Big Beef, Cherokee Purple and Marianna's Peace.

It's too bad Baden and Easton didn't get together and combine the axe handle and the torq handle!

If you are looking for a batback then Tanel has a sale on them for $45. I don't know about shipping. Here's a link:

I second the suggestion by JR! I used to use a duffle bag and a couple of years ago I bought a hard sided golf travel bag, perfect!

Another top bag is Tanel's RAGE Wheeled bag. It's a little pricy but well worth it.

Most require bpf of 1.21. Older bats that are rated 1.20 are grandfathered.

Hi Nancy, I took a few swings at Softball Mag's Spring Training with that Easton. It's Helmer's new bat. He was there and told me that it is meant to keep the bat in "zone" a little longer. I couldn't feel the handle turning.

Joe, about 250 swings.
DD, I see you caught that. I broke that one at about 2K swings and also my 28oz 12" at about the same amount of swings.
