Discussion: Breaking in a couple of new senior bats

Perl, it was discussed here last Sept that the Baden Fire ball may not be 44/375.
Kyphogt, if you are buying new balls, think about ISA approved balls. They are lighter than ASA and maybe utip balls, causing less damage to your bats. The 52/300 ball might also be better for your bats.

Discussion: Swing Makeover 11 up...Transition from working mechanics on your swing, to a pro style single focus

Webbie, Cocoa Beach in March is Softball Magazine's Spring Training.
I don't know about knee replacement but my reconstructed ACL is in my right knee. The first time out I tried not to use my lower body. After 5 or 6 bp sessions I just couldn't seem to get any distance. One of my bp partners made mention of using lower body. I later realized he was telling me that I wasn't using mine. I had gotten into a bad habit of not using my leg and I was glad he brought that to my attention. So, remember to start easy but later on remember to add your legs back into your swing.
Good luck on your rehab.

Pretty much healed but I am still favoring my right side somewhat. It doesn't affect my swing so I'm good for SST in Cocoa Beach!!

Discussion: Bat Comparisons

If you go by ASA approved bats you will be seeing shaved ASA bats. They are almost impossible to detect with the exceptions for the distance of the shots. My advice is to allow senior bats.
You may want to think about a screen for the pitchers.
Good luck.

Discussion: Why Not Have A Players Committee Of Real Players To Over See The Rules

Jdub, I'm sure you haven't noticed (since you are in the sw) that here in the se most major plus teams aren't allowed in "qualifiers". Their options for playing are now cut in half.
Have a good Chrisrmas!

Hemi, If you are referring to the league in Cherokee County, it wasn't a liability issue, just a safety issue.
I had my doubts when the rule was instituted. I was afraid it would change the game drastically but now I really like it. No throws from the outfield or infield have hit it.
I agree with lifetime ban for bat shavers.

Allan, my solution is to make hrs unlimited at the major plus level. Let the teams hit them, getting their max run per inning and then let the other team hit. It should make the game go faster. Maybe even lower the runs per half inning to 5 or 6.
