Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: OBSTRUCTION

My understanding of the obstruction rule is that if the runner was obstructed he will be awarded the next base if in the opinion of the umpire the runner would have made it if not obstructed. It's not automatic.
Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Discussion: Senior Easton

Hi Joe, I checked the swing weight of a 26 and 27 Legit as well as a 27 and 28 Easton. If I remember correctly the 26 was around 15.1, the 27 around 15.5 while the Easton 27 was something like a 16 and the 28 Easton about 16.4. I'm sure I am off on those figures but my point is that the Easton's swing weights were almost an ounce more than the Legits.
I'm playing with The Edge/Crystal Pharmacy though not in Myrtle Beach.

I tried a couple of the Easton senior bats this week in Cocoa Beach. The swing much heavier than the Worth Legits.

Discussion: pitchers mask

I noticed this past weekend at a big young guy's tournament that many infielders are now wearing face masks. Sign of the times??

" Trouble with it is time it takes to put on and take off."
Another reason to increase game times!

Discussion: Bat swing, analyzing it

A 28oz bat may swing like a 29oz or even a 26 oz. It depends on the balance point. To find the swing weight, rest the knob on a fixed object with the end of the bat on a scale (horizontally). You should be precise and consistent with this from bat to bat. I have built a jig so it is easier.
The swing weights of my bats may be anywhere from 17.5 ounces to 18.7.
This is helpful when choosing a durable bp bat. This bat and your senior bat should be close to the same swing weight.
