Discussion: Anyone used or tried compression socks ?

MD,
I bought the UA socks and they did not go all the way past my calf muscle :(

HJ,
to me they feel and work as compression and it has the titanium material to relive soreness, they also have a sleeve that is only directly made for the calf muscles;)

not sure what folks here are looking for, but found this link.. :)

Discussion: Anyone used or tried compression socks ?

I've using the Phiten model compression socks for 2 years now..no problems with them.. the key is to never place them in the dryer, as this causes them to break-down quicker...

Discussion: How can SSUSA possibly reclassify an established Major+ team

Why doesn't SSUSA just eliminate the MAJOR+ programs all together (ONLY for teams 55 & over)? It's not like SSUSA gets at minimum (5) teams in most MAJOR+ events. There are not enough MAJOR+ 55 & over teams in the country to make a decent bracket going into the World's...

Discussion: Please send you thoughts and prayers... for the RUDY FLORES FAMILY...

One of my former teammate from NCI, text me that RUDY FLORES suffered a Massive heart attack @ Mesquite, he was airlifted to a St. George hospital and sadly he PASSED AWAY.. With NCI last season he mostly played LF and RC/RF during the last SSUSA Worlds in Vegas... my heart is sadden by the news..:(

I just spoke with him this past TUES., to wish him and SOCAL 55's a good tourney in Mesquite... as a Christan, Rudy made me laugh.. he loved his life, wife, kids and Grandkids... and a passion for playing softball.. we would do OG funk dance moves to loosen up and just laugh all day during tourneys. He was 58 y/o... LOVE you kid.. Rest in peace...

Discussion: Performance enhancing

Guys... Kennard and others are correct.. PED's / HgH is NOT good for your body try at all possible to get your workouts in with comfort foods, dark and rich colored veggies/fruits, lean meats and fish, no fried foods, doughnuts and other refined junk foods, try to avoid the sodas pops, even Gatorade and anything that contains High Fructose Corn Syrup. If you're going to eat a burger at least make it a fur-burger and a side order of thighs.. LOL! ;) But seriously, may I suggest the multivitamins and herbs, I use for my workouts and daily life.

Discussion: monsta bats

I got swing one last week.. It's a GTG bat nothing like the crappy GBA bats. It has a floating inner barrel that you actually feel when hitting the ball and a very distinctive sound to it, we put a vertical paint crack on it, about 3" from the endcap & it still holding up very well with over 250+ hits.. It hits the mush ball very well, I hit an SB12 ball 300+ ;) He's got new model coming out The FOSSIL and the price is really good.

Discussion: 55 Major Division - Omega QSE Champions

As a member of NCI, along with Mike, I also want to compliment Omega QSE Const, They are a very solid team and they will compete effectively at Major Plus...

I also want to want apologize on behalf of team for the outburst in the "IF" game. NCI is a respectful team and the actions by ONE member, does not in anyway represent the whole team, Jim Davis and John Crawford....

Congrats OMEGA... ;) you guys are a class act and well deserved the win. Hope to you all of you guys again .. maybe in FL. or VA.

Team NCI and Mike great being your teammate... we did very good this year and let's stay the course for next year...

Discussion: Miken U II vs Combat Ambush

Well... Yesterday Saturday PM... I got to hit the AMBUSH with my teammate's 26EL bat... We in the ANAHEIM area it was very warm around 85+ degrees... The bat was very light for me.. But I was patience enough to wait and turn & drive the ball very well and far.... After a couple of swings, I found the sweetspot was at the end of the bat... easily putting the balls in the 325-340' range and I am highly impress with this bat... his bat at time, had over 200 BP hits.. we roughly put another 125+ hits between 3 guys... we used various Sr. balls: TRUMP STOTES, SPA BALLS, ROCK and EVIL BP balls... and this bat easily put more distance/pop and ball speed than my OG 29oz. UII.. and hit further and harder than my REEBOK 28 Bal which also had about 125+ BP hits on it...

The Ambush swings lighter than most Sr. bats, the barrel is very soft and the sound is deceptively (soft), not the loud crack sound, we are use to hearing.. so too me it is a very hot bat! I do plan on getting one maybe a 28 or a 30oz EL...

good job Alan..:)
