Discussion: OG Freaks

4 or 5 years ago I used a Freak Plus, imo large sweetspot, more durable and almost as hot as a senior bat.

It all comes downs to what the umpires allow.

Discussion: Better bats or better marketing?

OZ40, I agree with your statement, "durability is now the new marketing angle". I've grown tired of my senior bats lasting 2-400 swings. I stopped using one brand and switched to Combat about eight years ago. I've now switched to another and am happy with the durability as well as the distance.

Discussion: Dudley Lighning 12 inch senior bat. Webbing

Lefty, I have over 1000 swings on my 12" Dudley and the bat doesn't show any kind of stress.
I believe the spider webbing that you refer is caused by a clear coat that doesn't flex. To my knowledge it was first noticed on the grey Combat. I don't believe the Dudley will ever show any kind of webbing since it doesn't have that type of finish.
Maybe you could post pictures of your bat on softballfans.com.

Discussion: Why Not Reward Performance?

We had the same conversation last week in Vegas. Ours was centered on the higher seeded team being given the option of home or visitor. This would add to the importance of doing well in pool play.

Discussion: Las Vegas World ( batters box )

We had one called out at Desert Breeze and two called out at Lorenzi, all by the same umpire. All three instances the chalked boxes were 4' to the front of the plate's "elbow" and three feet to the rear. In two other of our games at Lorenzi the box was drawn 9' long, no problem there.

Discussion: How to Play More Innings

I know that Sparky.1. I would think they would want to negotiate their per game fee if they knew games would be a minimum of 90 minutes. I wouldn't expect them to work a 90 minute game at the 60 minute fee.

Discussion: How to Play More Innings

I don't believe it will happen either. It would mean paying umpires more. My point is that as a player that loves the game why would I want to speed up the game. Btw, I love one pitch games! But, there is a time of one pitch and a time for 90 minute games.

Discussion: How to Play More Innings

Why would you like to shorten the games?? I would propose to make each game 90 minutes, finish that inning and play the open inning. Also, make it 3 strikes and 4 balls.
Imo the only ones that would like a shorter game would be the tournament director and umpires.
If you like shorter games play one pitch!

Discussion: WHO ARE CURRENTLY THE MOST POWERFUL HITTERS IN SENIOR SOFTBALL

Sonny, it was good to put a face with a login id! I see that you saw my post on softball fans.
I hope to see you at the ball field soon. Btw, softball magazine open signups should be open soon for their spring training in Cocoa Beach in March. Bogie and his son Brett will be there.
