Hey OddBall, don't you think that you should list your age group that you want to play?

Discussion: Where's Dr. Bruce Walker

To all Seniors,

I was informed by Walk this morning that this board has threaten to ban him if he post's anymore.
Would someone please explain to us why he would be banned if he continued to post? Is it because he stands up for what he believes in?

Discussion: Where's Dr. Bruce Walker

Monta,
Is The Crew playing 50 Major this year or are you sandbagging in AAA? Just kidding, and I hope that you guys have a great year. I've retired for awhile but will probably make it out to some of the local tourney's.

Don,
I hope that's the case concerning Walk. He does have a habit of breaking bats easily. I don't think that there's a bat available that can withstand his hitting. He needs an unlimited supply of bats to make it through a season.

Discussion: Where's Dr. Bruce Walker

I haven't seen anything posted by Walk in the last few days, has he been banned from this board for speaking up in what he believes in? Walk has always shared his knowledge and opinions with us Seniors and whether you agree with him or not I believe that most of us have a great deal of respect for him, I know that I do.

Discussion: What happen to the Mike Kelly Post?

What did happen to the MK39 post? I fully concur with what Walk and einstein have posted. Aren't we allowed to voice our opinions concerning Senior Softball on this site?
By the way where's Mike? I haven't seen any posts from him in awhile.

Happy holidays to you Mike and I hope that you have a good season next year. My brother and I have retired but I'll probably still watch some of the local tourney's next year.

Mike,
Thanks for reminding me, Brownie did tell toward the end of summer that he wanted my brother for his new team if he gets it going.

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Start with one ball, one strike

I've always been a first pitch hitter but starting with 1 & 1 would put the hitter at a disavantage especially if you're facing Joe with his knuckleball or big curve according to Mike.

Mike, why are you posting the same thing several times in arow, are you getting excited when posting?

Joe,
You are like einstein, you're bringing up alot of different ideas, keep it up.

Discussion: Rolling for distance

MK,

I'm doing fine spent two weeks in Australia recently. Watched your team play at the Creek a couple of weeks ago and was told that you were moving your store that weekend. Because I didn't play too much last year, it would be too much of a pain to find a team for my brother and I to play on so I think that I'll retire. If you know of any team that needs a really good outfielder they may want to consider my brother who's fast, has a good arm, hits for a high average and also has alot of power. I would honestly say that he would do well in 50 Major or Major plus.
Regarding Walks' question, wouldn't it be possible to buy a new bat that wouldn['t meet the test? We all know that some same type of bats are hotter than other's out of the wrapper.

Topic: Bats
Discussion: Rolling for distance

I fully agree with my bro Walk and MK39 about breaking in bats. The best way is through BP and not only will you break-in the bat as well as getting used to the feel of a particular bat. For those of you that don't take BP, you'd be surprised how much you can improve as a hitter if you did. I'd rather take BP then play a league game. I'm also lucky that I have a friend that play's for the Old A's that will always take BP with me.For me bat's are too expensive to even try breaking in any differently which will definately shorten the life of a bat. I'm like MK39 in that I don't believe in using an altered bat, but I'm like Walk in that I don't care what bat the other team uses. There are so many altered bats around that I'm not sure how to stop it.
Walk, even a stock bat doesn't last too long in your hands.

Discussion: Overlap Grip

I learned the overlap grip from talking to Walk over the phone. He explained everything to me and luckily I was able to pick it up within a month. I also have more bat speed with the grip and I'm still able to hit opposite field without any problems.
Hoover,
Go to swingmechanics.com to learn about the grip and the mechanics of hitting. The video is one of the best I've seen on hitting.

You're right rabbit, the ISF tourney finished this weekend and they have already posted the results of all divisions with scores. It's been a couple of weeks since the Reno tourney and still no results have been posted by SSUSA.

Discussion: Rock N Reno Qualifier

MK39,
Mike, my brother and I are still free agents but he played with Stixx in Reno. Several teams have asked us to play for them but I'm not sure what we're going to do. Congrats on winning the Reno tourney, seems like your team is really coming together. Good to also hear that your business is doing really well.
My batting practice partner on the Old A's also ordered some custom 3N2's and the company is also giving him a free pair of standard black turfs due to the current long lead times and he's really happy that 3N2 is doing this for their customers. From what I've heard, 3N2 is growing so fast that they can't keep up with the demand for their cleats. Are you playing in Redwood City?
Take care,
AlohaBruce

mad dog is getting too old, he can't remember how Walk is doing for the Texan's. Just kidding BB77, I'm glad that StoneAge is doing well so far.

softballer (Monta) hope that your surgery goes well and you heal quickly.

MK39, did you ever get the 3N2's and if so how do you like them?
