Topic: General and miscellaneous
Discussion: 1 and 1 pitch count

I'm not for it in league play, but accept its use in tourneys for time reasons so can get the most amount of innings in. Agreed that time between half innings can be managed better.

Discussion: Why do you swing an End loaded bat?

I make more consistent solid contact with a balanced bat. This is probably due to being able to keep the bat on the desired flatter swing path. End-loaded ones seem to cause more fly balls and less frequent solid contacts. Could be just me, though.

Discussion: face masks

I looked at the Schutt one, but didn't like the rounded piece extending down from the forehead into the main sight area. Otherwise, it seems very sturdy. I know some players who use and like it.

Playball5, I have seen some balls glance off of the masks. One thing players like about them is they can play a hit ball more aggressively on the infield rather than defensively. This can be important on less than good fields and with hard hit grounders.

They are required for the pitcher in our league. I use and like the Rip-It Defense. It has very good visibility, decent cushioning, is lightweight and inexpensive. It comes in several colors, if that matters to you. The plastic ones out there aren't very durable. I also would stay away from those.

Discussion: knob cuff advocates

I also use and like the simple cone shaped cuff on all my bats. It makes a big difference in grip through the swing for me. I recommend using it.

Discussion: Bat restrictions for Seniors.

I'm looking for another balanced ASA bat for co-ed tourneys I play in. Anyone have any comments on the Easton new S1 or S2?
