Discussion: Second Home plate for National Tourneys

We had a guy step on and slip on the secondary home plate running in hard that got injured. From a defensive stand point I like the second plate however, from a safety aspect the line is a much better option...

Discussion: Not HAPPY with Bats Unlimited!

It typically costs me $1.50 to add the signature option and it's the best insurance whether you're sending or receiving something. It's saved me grief on numerous occasions...

If it has the ASA stamps on it it's worth a premium price...

Can't say I'd ever describe playing at the Canyons complex as "being stuck in St. George" - one of the nicest facilities I've ever played in and I find the drive kind of relaxing with some spectacular scenery.

Discussion: Batting Tee Recommendations

Worth makes a slo-pitch tee that is nice and tall... For travel I use a Rawlings Quick Tee (Pro Version)

Discussion: TOC follow up

This was our second year at the TOC and all I can say is Wow - it just keeps getting better. First on behalf of the Homer Lovers I'd like to say thank you to Terry, Fran, Dave, and all the SSUSA staff for putting on a fantastic event! The competition was stiff and though there were some blow outs when it came down to it there were a bunch of one run games in the bracket. What more can you ask for? (Other than maybe a two out of three split when there are only two teams in your division) We had great weather overall, got to see friends we hadn't seen in a year and had the opportunity to make new friendships with people that share our passion for this great game. What a fantastic group of people we got to meet from DLB, Team 1 Miken and the Mid Atlantic Elite 40 teams. Class acts all the way around! Now time to get to work to qualify for next year...

Thanks,
Brad Geil

Wish we had known about this one earlier Alan - flights are booked already and we arrive around noon on the third... It would have been nice to get some games under our belt before the TOC

It would be nice to see the 24"x36" mat become the standard...

Discussion: Suggestions for 2015

I have to agree that going to the bigger mat 24"x36" helps the pitcher without seriously changing the game like an arc height change would do...

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)
