Topic: Bats
Discussion: senior softball bat

A year ago there was a thread about the Miken Triad Blackout. A very durable senior bat that some power hitters in the St. G area were up to 6-700 hits before it felt good. Not a power hitter, but it's a great BP bat for me.

Please, please, please! I need my senior bat to get the ITP hr's. My wheels make up for the 20-30 feet my bat speed is lacking.

Discussion: Rubber bat knob

The knob that bprieve uses is similaar to this picture , but rubber. It's almost the size of a racquetball, but of harder rubber.

Discussion: Utah player looking for 60/65 Major/AAA team for 2015 and beyond.

Presently with AAA Scrap Iron Diamonds 65 (#14), but my contract will not be renewed for next year. (I need a new agent!) The club has changes taking place with a new 80 team, with other players moving up to a few age groups. Have been with the diamonds for two seasons. Age is 67; can comfortably play any position, but have not pitched in any tourney games. O and D speed is my strongest asset with several ITP HR's these past two years. Scheduled to play with the diamonds at both Dalton and Vegas next month. For the Huntsman Games, I'm with the 65 Raiders from British Columbia. Goal, like many out there, is to compete well for a ring.
Thanks for reading.

Discussion: NEW Miken Triad Blackout Senior bat !!!


HJ asked for a bat that doesn't take several hundred swings to break in. Depending how often he plays or does BP, it might take him a couple of years to break in a Triad, especially if he's a "weak hitting senior". I'd suggest HJ that you talk to someone you play with and see if they are selling one of their bats or purchase one of the other bats Tri mentioned.

Spoke with a well respected player in the St. G area who has the Triad. He feels it may take over 400 swings to break this bat in. The added resin gives the bat durability, but requires more break in swings than most bats.

Discussion: Looking for a roommate and rental passengers.


Will be at Shawnee and have room for one in the hotel I reserved. I check in on the 14th, but showing up on the 15th is fine. With taxes, the total is $56/night so 28 a night should fit someones budget. Days Inn is 14 miles from complex.

Also, I arrive at the K. City airport around 11AM on the 14th and depart on the afternoon of the 19th. If anyone needs rides to the complex from Days Inn, you'll find my fee very reasonable. (Got to keep the costs down some how!)

Regards and good luck.
