Discussion: Reebok Barrage

You should send it back to Reebok
Reebok Senior Bat R&D
1895 JW Foster Blvd.
Canton, MA 02021
Send it with a letter asking for a refund explaining that you have been a loyal Reebok customer and the bat started to peel after 5th hit be sure to give them your contact information. When I did this they contacted me right when they got it and gave me a full refund.
Good Luck

Discussion: Reebok Barrage update

I got my Barrage this past Sat. went to try it out on Sunday Beautiful day 70 degrees and sun shining in California. I was hitting 44/375 balls and hitting my other bats first to get warmed up I swing 30oz DeMarini Stadiums that I hit very well. Alan suggested that I purchase a 29oz Barrage said it had more of an end load feel to it than the 30oz. I agree with the feel it does feel a bit more end loaded but possibly the flex of the handle has a bit more to do with it. I hit two balls with it and went to hit a third and I could hear a distinct rattle in the barrel like something inside the bat broke loose a piece of glue from the end cap maybe????

I reported the rattle to Alan and he responded itís usually the case with one that flexes early.

I responded with a question to him about what does flex have to do with a rattle and should I be worried about the durability of the bat?

He replied that is your blessing.

So I was wondering if anyone on this thread has had this happen to their bat and if it is defective is there a way to get it replaced or a refund?

BTW hottest bat I have ever hit was hitting at a Baseball field 325+ fences and cleared the fence with ease several times!

Also I agree with you A dik more mass through the hitting zone with speed equals harder hit balls sorry I didnít learn it from the big bang theory I learned it from watching old clips of Babe Ruth I think he used to hit with a 54oz bat.

Discussion: 2000 Freak 98

In 2000 when bats were rated for ASA they were also rated for USSSA because the ASA had a BPF rating of .98 and USSSA had a BPF rating of 1.20 with the same test process. They have both changed to different test procedures and different ratings now so you need to check with your local league if they will still allow the bat to be used. As far as price it should go for about $100.00 approx. but with the rating change sell it now. I have one of these by the way and it is a HOT bat for ASA league.

Discussion: A few questions about a tourney I was in over the weekend.

I had another question if you guys are up to it. I was curious about the bat warmers that I have seen at some of the tournaments that I have been to. I thought that bat altering was against the rules warming a bat can increase the ability of the bat, therefore wouldn't that be considered altering? one of the leagues I play in will not allow those microwaveable heat pad bat warmers to be used isn't that the same thing? I looked it up in the rules it says.
3.4(4) ē ALTERED EQUIPMENT A bat or ball is considered altered when the physical characteristics of a legal softball bat or ball have been changed (EXAMPLE: chilling softballs). Replacing the handle of a metal bat with a wooden or other type handle, inserting material inside the bat, applying excessive tape (more than two layers) to the bat grip or painting a bat other than at the top or bottom for identification purposes are considered altering the bat. Replacing the grip with another legal grip is not considered altering the bat.

I know it would of made no difference yes I could see the numbers, like I said I didn't make a big stink about it, the point of my questions were to clarify the rules. So let me ask again....Same Uniform, two different teams in the same bracket is that ok?
My other question about the ball near the dugout was just clarification as well. Again I know it made not difference you guys kicked our butt but I was just curious.

I would rather not say just cause We will have to play that team again, I will Say it was in CA. I believe the senior softball rules as well as most tourney rues state they must have numbers so they could have been disqualified for that.

Discussion: Infield Fly Rule

The infield fly rule is a judgment call, as the rule states that "The judgment of the umpire must govern" and "is in no sense to be considered an appeal play". The rule also states that "Infield Fly" shall be declared immediately upon an umpire's determination that a batted ball has become an infield fly based on the criteria described above and is solely based on the umpire's discretion. Since different umpires may have different definitions of what constitutes "ordinary effort," the rule may be applied differently depending on the umpire and game conditions.
Our Umpires will State as the batter comes to the plate the "infield fly rule is in effect" lets everybody have a heads up. Note: a line drive caught then intentionally dropped is also a judgment call by the Umpire like what happened to me last week.

Discussion: A few questions about a tourney I was in over the weekend.

I played in a small backyard tourney this past weekend and there were a few things that happened that confused me. First off there was a team I should say two teams a 50+ team and a 55+ team that were named the same had the same team name and had the same Uniforms playing in the same bracket is that ok? There was also a call that I thought was poor a player was standing outside his dugout I think there was actually 5 standing out side warm up the batter, base coach and three others there was a ball that the first baseman missed and it rolled over near the dugout opening the player standing there out side the dugout did not move and the first basemen could not get to the ball is that interference? What should have happened if it was? should the runners be able to advance? Thanks for any information you can help me with the game didn't matter for the event and I did not make a big stink about it just didn't seem right.

Discussion: Anybody try the Demarini one Senior 2013

my bigest fear is that i buy it and it breaks so by what everybody says i should be gtg. Yes i did break not only one but two Cartels 1st one lasted about two months second one a return one lasted about 75 good hits. If you look at the softballfans.com web sight I'm not the only one they did not last long for. Now maybe it is because i swing a 30oz maybe because i swing like Babe Ruth (lol) but I did break two of them and will not buy another one!
