In our division (eight teams)at Mesquite/St.G, of the eight games we played, four were against the same team.

You can have more than three of the next higher level on the team, but only three at a time may be on a tournament roster.

Discussion: Dudley Lightnings Breaking Under 300 Swings?

Below in the topic "Hot Bats and HRs", I posted the following. "Wish I had Mario's luck. My 27oz 12"EL (first 27 & EL ever) has the good old lightning bolt with <400 contact swings and I'm not a HR guy. If I can't buy a durable/flexible adhesive, JB Weld will have to do. Should be a good BP bat." Also mentioned was players with end cap issues traded for a new bat.

Easy AT! Spell check didn't find any words misspelled. Now, if the IT geeks can design a program that can tell us when a word, even if spelled right, doesn't fit in the sentence, we all would be most appreciative.

Forgot to mention above that with my Dudley cracking, I envy the players who had their DL replaced for an end cap failure, but a bat that cracked way too early cannot.

This is one great bag. Can have three sections or one large inside section. Shoulder straps hide in the back when the handle is used. Two side storage areas and holds four bats, hitting tee, etc. Top pocket for personal items.

Discussion: Spring Worlds Results

Oh yeah, Mustangs OC won (damn!) the "if" game by two runs over the AZ Ancients in 65AAA. Us Ancients played the Mustangs four times during our eight game run. As it turned out, we only played CA teams which was different since there were two CO teams (SI), and one each from UT, and NV.

Discussion: Pioneer park

The Snow Canyon Softball Complex in St. G gets used year round and there's no turf fields. Fields 6&7 are used just about year round. For about a month prior to the Huntman's Games, the complex is shut down. I'm thinking any large complex around the country that is in great condition for all the usage should be congratulated.

No, I was referring to the new 70 SI Reds. I play rec ball with Bob Bennett, who moved up from the 65 Reds and it seems this new 70 team has already had some success. They've beaten some 70 Majors already.

SI Reds have won another tourney or two. They might move up during the season.

Discussion: Batting Tee Recommendations

I picked up this one on Amazon. Very portable, the top goes inside my bag, and the base goes in an extra bat sleeve. The ball holding top is flexible and should never break.

Discussion: Dudley Lighning 12 inch senior bat.

Yes hemi. Once the first bat was tested, was found to have durability, it seemed like other manufacturers jumped on the band wagon. Besides loads of hits, most if these bats also provide distance.

Discussion: Dudley Lighning 12 inch senior bat.

I believe barrel size should not affect where the ball goes. How you read the pitch (outside, middle, inside) probably tells a batter where they should be going. Other options are moving up in the box, wait a little longer, lead with your hands, rotate your rear foot to the outside, etc. But, then again these thoughts may all be out to lunch. (I'm still not consistently there yet with all these options and any others I've missed since I've only been at it for several years.)

Discussion: A.D. Starr bats

Anyone of you distributor's have any info on this bat? Mostly white with the sweet spot area with a gritty type surface that might outlast the lightening tacky surface. Saw one today in St. G. Supposedly the designer had this surface around before the Dudley's. Never heard of this company.

I'd guess Gforce8 has the players, but isn't interested in letting everyone else know that since it's over three month's since he made his request.

Discussion: Dudley Lightning

Whether it falls under the heading of physics or not, if you make contact with an object that spins with a smooth object, it will not begin spinning as fast as it would when a tacky object makes contact. You can do your own test. Hitting the ball at 5 o'clock is supposed to create more back spin which produces longer distance in the balls travel.

Doesn't the ball knuckle when hit square ( 3 o'clock)?
