I hit it along with a couple of senior Worths, BoomBah, and an Easton. I don't see any reason to change from my Dudley.

Perl, just tell him that two of us are over 65 and one is over 60. Everyone knows when you get that old you only have warning track power!

Discussion: Dudley Lighning 12 inch senior bat.

It's still alive with about 1800 swings. My 13" 29oz broke today with 1700 by my count. I bought it used and the previous owner said it had 200 swings on it when he sold it to me. If it only had 200 swings the total is around 1700 which, to me, is lower than I expected.

Discussion: Tribute to one of the best!!!

In the mid 90's we played Craig and, I believe, Steeles, at the Twitty. Craig was throwing fastballs and the way he delivered them was to push off of the rubber, releasing the ball when he was a couple of feet off of it. Our pitcher was very vocal to the umpires saying he had to stay in contact with the rubber. The umpires and Craig ignored him. The umpires finally ejected our pitcher because he wouldn't shut up.
I don't recall the score but I'm sure we were slaughtered.

Discussion: Proposed changes in our local league

I agree with Ho. Our league has always been a draft league and it works really well. This prevents one team from loading up. There are probably 5 or 6 tournament teams with players from our league and it hasn't caused any problems.

Discussion: most durable senior bat

Alan, to fully cure, 3M 5200 needs 5-7 days. This is from West Maine's website:
3M 5200 Polyurethane Adhesive/Sealant:
Provides exceptionally strong adhesion, yet stays flexible
after it cures. May be used above or below the waterline.
Ideal for underwater thru-hull fittings, hull to deck joints,
portholes, and bonding wood to fiberglass.
Goes on smoothly, won't sag, and remains workable
for up to four hours. Cures in 5-7 days with no shrinking.

Discussion: BP Bat?????

With the fragile senior bats of the past I frequently used a utrip bat or ASA bat..ASA especially in cold weather.
Now, however, I use the Dudley Lightning.
