Nothing wrong with bringing a knife to a gun fight.. Just have a good sneak attack and add then to our prayer list. Hey lets get a 34 in 34 oz Easton 1980 bat n have a home run derby. Prolly wont have 5 contestants.

J,dub- there was a time when the pitcher was the baddest SOB on the field. They wanted you to hit at him. They needed you you hit at them. To prove their point. I'm sure no matter how lively these bats get, they still are the boss of the field and most of the guys want it hit at them. (Most)

Our differences is u called me out as swinging a senior bat. There is nothing to discuss except when I hit one WELL over 400 foot with a 1.20 bat u owe me am apology. Bottom line, it only has to go 301 feet. Who needs an apology, but me a beer

Sorry let me clarify, Remember in the days of the caveman, they send the big boys out for the kills, the rest of the clan cleaned the meat. Everybody had a specific job

Ok az iz, pitchers are forced to wear masks. No more options. When your team has hit your allowed number oh home runs, THE MIDDLE IS WIDE OPEN. Now I'm talkin 50's n 55's only, Make them swing 1.20 bats. If you are caught with an altered bat, then the league in which he is playing MUST put that player on a LIFETIME BAN. If you refuse to have your bat checked, LIFETIME ban. I don't know about you, it's bad enough these 1.21 bats are so hot, but in the hands of the ones who choose to shave them, has no respect for the life of a fellow competitor.
Now when you see someone 5 foot tall and one hundred pounds hit a ball 400 feet, with a 1.20 bat I just can't believe he can do it. I can understand they are able to hit home runs for the first time in there life, there's a reason for it. If u want to impress me, go back to hitting base hits instead if swinging for your solo shot.
It's obvious I'm not making friends here. But remember in the vaveman days, the big boys made the kills, the rest of the clan cleaned the meat.

Great comment ace. Lets not forget when we talk about the "young guys" with their shaved n rolled bats, we are not talking about the 20 ur old kids in league ball. We are talking about the early 50's guys who never in their life hit a home run. Now they are a part of something that really isn't such a big deal cause we been doing it since the age of 20 swinging 34 inch 34 ounce Easton telephone poles. What makes it a big deal, cause it took 50 yrs and a senior bat to hit a home run. I am in the process of proving my point. I will find a 12 yr old boy n video him hitting a ball out with a senior bat. What will the world say then? "It's a shaved senior bat"

senior softball organization buy a bat compression tool. Have it at every tourn. If you refuse to allow it to be checked, and get caught its a LIFETIME BAN. Weed the cheaters out.

Nobody enjoys hitting bombs more than I do. Sorry to say. If that's all u can do, I dont see u as a well rounded player. We all didn't grow up hitting bombs when we was 5. Get back to the basics. We should all know by now how to base hit a ball to any side of the field without trying to take lights out on the light pole. Limit the bombs, guys who hit solos but beer after the game. The key her gentlemen, hit them when u have to, not just because

What a great discussion this topic has brought out. Even thought I'm against using a bat 12 yr old atheletes can hit the ball out with, I think they are great in the 60's and up division. I don't care how much u shave a senior bat, bring a softer ball into the 50's age group game and we will not even see warning track power. Nothing but outs. Not 301 foot singles. If u wanna be a beast and hit home runs, work for it, anybody can swipe a card these days and hit bombs. Horse shit

Great advice tri18, once I build my wonder boy bat out of that tree, there's a guy in Lakeland that shaves bats for 30 bucks each. How do u take the plug off a wood bat

Hey pull my finger. The disclaimer Is there for a reason. Any bat in a beasts hand is a deadly weapon. It says that cause of it compression rating. Just because it says 1.20 doesn't mean it's a bat with killer power. But there are 1.20 bats that compression standards are so high they put that disclaimer on them all. Bottom line is pitchers are forced to wear face masks. Not an option. U think its because it has anything to do with their lack of abilities ? I think not. We all hate rules, but need them in the game. Pitching nets are coming next, you watch. It's already happening in league ball most places. Just get rid of the hot bats n lets all play softball. Lifetime ban bat shavers.

That's what it comes down to for me Boston. I'll break any bat within two months. Longest bat was 4 months and it was the Ambush. Hot from day one. I'm BObatbrkr for a reason. Time for me to drop down to a durable ASA or usssa bat. Heard so many good things about the Z2000 and the psycho. Have used both, love them both. Nothing like a good bat investment.

Great point bucs. If they start thinking fence, that's all they swing for. Takes them right out of their game

As for the "it's the magician not the wand" comment ? Lets not forget that Harry Potter can really fly around on a broom.

And boog that is the exact point I'm making. Like I said earlier. A 5 foot tall 100 pound man 50 yr old can not hit a ball 375. I saw I done yesterday. When I asked for it to get checked, it went straight to the bat bag. He did not swing it again and he bitched as he popped up shallow the next three at bats. His bat was shaved no doubt. Nothing done about it. LIFETIME BAN should be penalty for altering a bat
