Discussion: A thanks

Ron, that throw to third was sick. I told the team didn't you guys pay attention when he almost threw me out at second. I play with the Rio Grande 55's leftfield. I hit a ball off the RF wall and was cruising into second, until I saw the SS get into position for a throw. I decided, I better haul butt and had to slide into second to make it safely. I looked at your SS and said "What a frigin throw, that man has a cannon." He calmly responded 'yea, not bad' with a big grin on his face.
Hope to see you guys again at future tourneys Your a Class Act.

Discussion: What are your resolutions this year

This year I would really like to meet more players from other teams. Sit have a beer and talk sports or about the old days. I play in the 55 Major division with the Rio Grande 55's. Come by say hi the name is Tony. I guess that's a good start.

Amen to that Happy New Year to all. Enjoy the game no matter what the rule changes are. Besides the love of my wife, children and grandchildren this game brings me joy. Nothing like being on a baseball/softball field. We are blessed to play the game.

Webbie: You seem to be doing well. Now that the Major plus division has DBO after you use up your HR's. You might as well join us in the 55 Major division. lol
I actually enjoy watching a guy 150 lbs to 200 lbs hitting the ball 300 plus, than guys well over 200 lbs. Guys that big should hit it a ton. They don't even have to workout as hard as us little guys. We need as much muscle and have to swing out our butts to get it out. We definitely can't rely on a few extra pounds.

Discussion: All the hate on DBO with senior bats...how about this?

Here we go again. Fellas their is no law or rule that says you have to swing a senior bat in senior ball. Bring your aluminum bats and swing them as you please.

Turbo are you kidding me you would be "inclined to retaliate". What are we 18 again. I play plenty of utrip still and when I here kids yell middles open it pisses me off. Utrip has a rule now if they hear a team say that the player is to be thrown out the game. In whatever league I play in if I hit pass the pitcher I apologize when I get to base. If I hit a pitcher I have actually not run and walked up to the pitcher to make sure they are alright. My teammates often get upset but i don't care. The health of a person is more important than my getting on base. Pitchers do need to take steps to protect themselves. There is plenty of lightweight safety equipment that can be worn.
At our age anyone that would purposely try to hurt a fellow player either by hittng up the middle or sliding at a player late or out of the base path is a punk.
I have an ego but not enough to hurt someone. I also have a young wife and trust me. My ego in the bedroom is far more important than on the field. If I needed viagra the senior bat would go first. lol
HAPPY NEW YEAR

Turbo 34 I don't understand your decision based on using a senior bat. You do have the option of swinging a nonsenior bat. If you are that concerned about hurting someone and can hit HR's w/o a senior bat then why use one. If it is the HR rule you are more concerned with then that is good reason. But, you do sound hypocritical blaming the HR rule and the use of a senior bat. You do have control of that aspect of the issue. JMO Merry Christmas

If some big hitters guys feel strongly enough about the use of senior bats. May I recommend they set the example and use USSSA or ASA bats. Prove to your counterparts that you are a better man by hitting bombs with a supposedly lesser bat. I have actually done this in league. I would hit bombs with my USSSA bats and tell guys "I don't need no stinkin senior bat" lol

Discussion: Why only one Rec. tourney.

I was wondering why there is one one recreational tourney listed. My buddies and I love these tourneys to get our league team together since we are aged 50 to 60 AA to major. we also use them for our tourney team to get ready for a TOC.

Discussion: Time to eliminate senior bats

I am 5'11" 170lbs. I have hit HR's in USSSA and senior ball with USSSA bats. I hit them with my senior bats. I don't see much difference personally and i'm a little guy. I get about a year or more out of my senior bats. I had an OG Snake for 4 years before it died. I have also found some extremely hot USSSA bats such as the OG Freak and the Rawlings Rush 120 that I ahve usd in senior play. For the life of me i can't understand why guys weighing 200 plus lbs at any height need a senior bat. Then bitch about them breaking and having to buy several per year. The USSSA bats come with a year warranty except Easton now goes 6 mths. I can undersatnd guys my size drooling over the senior bats. I have seen smaller guys I know hitting bombs in seniors and playing USSSA and having WTP.

Discussion: cold weather bats

I just played in a scrimmage game here in southern NM where it is usaully very comfortable. The temps were in the low 30's with the wind chill. Most of us brought out our USSSA bats to use. A couple of guys actually used their Combat Centenarians. I was shocked the bats did not crack at all. I would never use a senior bat in these types of temps. In fact, I didn't even take out my gamer USSSA bat. These guys either lucked out or the Centenarian is a duarble bat.

Discussion: USA U2 snapped

The player swinging the bat is about 6'1" and 210. Not big by any means compared to some of the guys I've seen in senior ball. I have to agree with Crusher as well. I can't see how anything but a defect would cause a bat to snap at the handle. It was fortunate we were in a cage and not on a field where the bat could have nailed someone.
I'm going to have him take pics so we can show people in Prescott this weekend. It's a clean break.

Discussion: USA U2 snapped

Gentlemen: I was taking bp yesterday and a teamamtes USA U-2 snapped at the handle. This bat was NIW when he started hitting. it could not have been more than the 20th swing. We used senior trumps and classic M's for bp. I have never seen this before with a composite, has anyone else.

Discussion: NEED A GOOD UTRIP BAT

I play alot more U-trip than senior ball so have ried many bats. If your league doesn't require the new stamp go with the OG Freak or OG CNT +. They can be found used for about $120 to $160 don't go any higher on message board at a site I don't think we can mention. If the new stamp is required go with the Worth WSE it is a max load but swings light. Mine drops serious bombs. They go NIW for $229 right now with a warranty. Others I have swung that have great pop and distance are the balanced 2012 Easton Salvo comp 100, 2012 Easton Stealth 100 (hard to come by) but can be found used, The slight EL 2013 Miken freak plus and Balanced 2012 Louisville Z2000. good luck lots of choices. If you can to try these bats before buying one it would be great.
