Discussion: NEW Miken Senior bat (You might want to read this one !)

Personally, I would only want a bat to have the required info on a single color, if even that is needed. As long as it accepts tape with the rotation numbers, I'm a happy guy. Looks like this is similar to the Lightning's coming out party, see you in September, which dragged on in some regions.

Discussion: NEW Miken Senior bat (You might want to read this one !)

In order to have a bat that seems to provide longer distances, for those who are not power hitters, wouldn't this type of bat allow faster balls through and over the infielders, and between and over the outfielders? That's how I would look at a bat like this one.

Discussion: Dudley ... Reebok

Thanks for the reply Tri18. When one reads "Dudley gets the durability prize but.....that may change soon", some of us are waiting since that little nugget was thrown out there.

Discussion: ARC OF THE PITCHED BALL

The plate ump walks out to the mound, they know their own height, they get an idea how tall the pitcher is, do the math, and pick a spot behind the pitcher as to what six feet is while they are standing tall, and stick to it. Kept any complaints to a very few during my plate years.

You should not type "that may change soon" and not expect a question like STL0's post. Your current and future customers await your reply.

Any idea how long the spring lasts and are they easy to replace?

Discussion: Camping Info Wanted

I do not own an RV, but have rented Class C's a few times. My suggestions are based on conversations with RV owners and my observations.

Diesel is usually better for power and durability. There are few areas that do not have hills/mountains.

With a class A, at some point you will probably need to tow a vehicle. If you're a truck guy, also consider 5th wheeler's.

As for the RV itself, consider how many might sleep in it over the years. Grand kids, teammates, etc. Some RV's have built in bunk beds.

Self leveling is better.

Storage inside and outside.

Number of AC units, size of bathroom, main BR privacy, number of seats/couches, outside awnings, ceiling insulation (rain can be loud), back up camera, satellite capabilities, size of counters, propane, etc.

Size of tanks and fuel, and easy of filling up and dumping should not be overlooked.

Don't need to buy new, but at least something no older than 4/5 years.

Hopefully others with years of experience will type something, but put your check list together before you start looking and find out where the best areas are to buy.

Good luck.

Discussion: Foot placement in batter's box before pitch

I'd suggest that players who occasionally have this issue print the rules for each association and keep it in there bag. If there's a question, pull it out. Make sure your manager is OK with it or have the manager keep them in their pocket/bag.

Discussion: How Many Major players can play on a AAA 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.

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.

Discussion: Hot Bats and Hrs

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.

Discussion: Hot Bats and Hrs

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.

Discussion: Bat Bag

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.
