Discussion: Bat Warranties


If you have a receipt/proof of purchase Miken is very good about replacing U-2s. Go to the Miken Sports website waranty tab and get an RA No.

I have found Miken to be the best when it comes to replacing senior bats.

Discussion: Sad News in Indy

Anytime we lose a member of the senior softball fraternity it's a sad day.

I agree with you , let you play the AAA Nationals and then move you up if warranted. You hate being penalized for playing well. It seems like some teams never get moved up, one in our area in particular but I won't mention thier name since they're my friends. Hopefully you guys can get reclassified to AAA.

Good luck and hope to see you soon

Huffman is a very good 65AAA team. Can they compete in the Major division, probably so. The unfortunate thing is they should be able to play AAA until they win a true National tournament. Winning a few regional tournaments can be misleading. That said, Huffman has dominated a very good group of 65AAA teams. The rating system benefits some teams and unjustly penalizes others. In this particular case Huffman has to feel the rating system has failed them. Hopefully Huffman excepts this bump and continues to play some great softball.

Discussion: How Much Difference in the Dudley Lightning Whites?

We have been swinging both the 12" and 13" 27oz EL models. The EL on the 12" seems a little more pronounced to me. The sweet spot on the 12" is smaller, reminds me of the old PST. I personally hit the 12" model further and it just feels better to me. I hit with some guys that can really hit it and distance wise the Dudleys are great. As for durability the 12" has about 800 cuts and is still going strong, The 13" has about 150 swings and is just getting really hot. If you normally swing a 27oz stay with that weight.

See if Alan Tanner does another critique/update. His opinions are usually rught on.

Discussion: Who Will Be Participating in the Southern Championships in Birmingham?


Elite 60's will be there. Columbus LX is not playing and I haven't heard about TAG, Randy Smith or Louisiana team.

Looking forward to seeing everyone and hoping for good weather.

Discussion: Patty Mac

To the friends of Patty Mac. Pat is having some health problems and while he is expecting a full recovery right now he is feeling pretty rough. Keep Pat in your prayers and if you'd like you can give him a call at 850.324.0314

I'm sure hearing from his softball brothers will help in his getting well.

Discussion: Hitting

BP, if Bruce says it I'm listening. He's a great hitter.

Know and trust your swing
Pitch selection
Be aggressive but under control

Hit your pitch and good things will happen

Discussion: Pickle Juice

Dill pickle juice is the ticket. Often at tournaments they have a big jar of pickles. Asked for a cup of ice filled with the pickle juice. Really works.

Discussion: thinking of retireing from tourney ball

Chances are it you quit playing ball you will pick up something else to do like golf, fishing, hunting, etc. All hobbies cost and take time. If you have lost your love for the game or feel the negatives outweigh the positives maybe you should hang it up. Good luck with your decision,

Discussion: Tee-shirts or other prizes?

Hitman (Jim), totally agree, the awards left a lot to be desired. Congratulations on you guys win and your MVP. I heard you were 24 for 25 or something like that. Keep it up and we'll see in Maryville or Marietta.

Discussion: SPA drops the ball.

I don't think the SPA dropped the ball. With the cost to rent fields, pay umpires, purchase awards and other costs if they don't get enough teams they are forced to cancel. It stinks that priceline wouldn't refund your money and you didn't get to play but I can't see how you blame the organization.

Unfortunately the website is not working. They have placed the 65 Majors teams with the 60 AAA.
You guys play the Hitmen Friday at 9:30. You play at 11:00 and 2:00 but I don't know who.

Yes, this is the same Bill Gore. The Hulbert team was a great team, Gore could hit it then and still wears it out.

The seniors also get together on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at Exchange. We meet at 8:00am for BP and play a game starting at 9:00. Keep in mind the level of play may not be what you're accustomed to but we still have fun.

JT, hope all is going well. Did you guys win Cartersville?

Discussion: Bat Makers

I believe if you look in the dugouts what you'll see are more Mikens than all other companies combined. Combat has done a great job. DeMarini, Worth, Easton, TPS and others are vying for a piece of the market which is good for the game. Miken has a big advantage since they started everything with the Ultra II and built a huge fan base.

Discussion: Any results from Montgomery


Great seeing you too. Your TSC team will make some serious noise this season and you will be a big addition to the team. Welcome to senior softball, you will love it.

I am glad we're not playing U-trip. You always made it tough to hit the fast ball. Hope to see you soon.
