The USSSA Miken DC41 and the Worth Resmondo Legit bot hit the 52/275 ball extremely well...

Pretty sure if the bases are loaded the only thing Jose would get is one RBI as I sent him to 1st base in that situation... LoL

Discussion: face masks

I wear the Worth Pitchers Mask and after a couple game to get used to it I would pitch without it anymore. It's comfortable, and I don't find it too bad for picking up the ball with the exception of the nasty one at the ankles...

Yes he is! Even on back to back intentional walks the runner must touch the bases in order.

I don't think there has to be intent for interference to be called.

Discussion: Hitting

I use the same model and weight of bat for BP as I use in games, however, once a bat reaches "gamer" status I typically keep it just for games. That said, I typically tend to have 2 or 3 of the same bats on the go at any time. So I would have to agree with your final statement - same bat and multiple going.

As a disclaimer where I play a lot of leagues/tournaments are simply new thumbprint USSSA so I have a set of these as well as my senior bats on the go and BP the bats based on what the next upcoming tournament is.

Currently that regimen is 27oz Miken DC41 for USSSA and 27oz 2 piece Ultra II Maxload for senior tournaments. (I'm anxiously awaiting the arrival of a couple of Big Cats)

Discussion: Hitting

I agree 100% Bruce! My regular BP partner is a young stud that's playing with Team Canada's Border Battle squad this year and he's in top shape and pushes me to be better.

By the time that BP regimen is completed the tank is empty for me...

That said when we are "on it" we may limit that to 12-15 swings in each of those holes...

Discussion: Hitting

To add to what others have said here I also find in addition to hitting "targets" my most productive BP sessions work there way around the field.

1. Work hitting to RF and hitting the 3-4 hole
2. Hit RC gap
3. Hit right field side between the pitcher and 2nd baseman
4. Hit left field side between the pitcher and SS
5. Hit LF gap
6. Hit the 5-6 hole and pull down the 3rd baseline
7. Take some free swings to finish and "go with the pitch"
(Previous to this I'm forcing pitches into the current spot)

Max 20 - 25 swings per spot

Discussion: Huntsman Senior Games HR Rule

Hey guys I just received my 2014 Huntsman Senior Games Handbook and noticed that under FORMAT/RULES it says to visit http://www.seniorgames.net/sports/softball/men/handbook/ for information on their new HR Rule; however, there doesn't seem to be anything noting what the "New Rule" is when you go to this page? Does anyone here know if they are following the SSUSA rule or are they going to continue with the unlimited HRs as in the past?

The fact that they note in the book that there is a "New Rule" would lead one to believe there's been a change...

Discussion: New DBO HR rules for 2014

Good thread Alan! I've found that the walk after the HR limit is reached isn't so bad - when it's actually an out then the shots up the middle seem to increase exponentially...

Discussion: Pitching masks revisited

I'm joining the discussion a little late but I will say as far as seeing more middle shots and pitchers being hit more than ever before I believe it has more to do with the DBO rule than being hit simply because of wearing a mask. It took me a little time to adjust to wearing the mask, which I put it on for my better half a couple years ago as opposed to because it was mandated, but the only ball I struggle to see well is the rocket at my ankles. What I do find though is with the DBO rule now after the HR limit is reached there are more balls than ever hit between 2nd and SS. I think more guys are being hit due to the increased frequency of these hits as opposed to anything else. The law of averages states that the more balls hit between SS & 2nd the higher the likelihood of the pitcher being hit. So it's hard to simply say that putting the mask on is why pitchers are taking shots when both the mask rule and the DBO out rule were instituted at the same time. Putting a HR limit in place with it being a walk after the limit as was played at the TOC seemed to work well - with it being an out now we all know where the ball tends to go...
