Discussion: mike machenko hitting show at Champaign Friday night

i stayed to watch the homerun contest after our last game Friday night at the midwest championships. They never had anyone enter, but A few guys did take some bp, putting on quite a show. There was a big lefty who was cranking some bombs, none other than mike macenko. It was nice to see this guy hitting bombs again. I had talked to him at the combat booth earlier and if you get a chance stop by and say hello. he is a super guy and still a great hitter. They were hitting the new senior combat and the ball was flying.

I seen some of the best on Kellys team. Clatterbaugh,Jones, Burbank, Einstein and guy from Steeles are outstanding
hitters for power and placement. Clatter at 61 looks 40 years old, what a stud. The Hollis's are real hitters too

Discussion: Someone Rank the Top Teams in Each Division for me.

I will give Sweet Construction some props. I played in Seattle and saw Sweet play and they are superb. Could have easily won it. Maybe the best power of all the 50 major teams. All the major teams seemed pretty damn close as did the 55's.

Discussion: How many guys seriously work on hitting technique all year?

I am trying to improve my power in the off season. Most of the guys I hit with, never bother to change anything on the swing. Do any of you use specific exercises or techniques to improve power. What would you suggest to a 250 lb 60 year old who hits with the power of a 150 lber! Just curious to see what you better hitters do for getting better and what you might suggest for me.

Discussion: Wish we could put the illegal bat doctoring talk to rest

Bruce, I know your a very good 55 player but I think that the ages should stay as they are. I don't see a 58 year old playing with some of the studs at 50 as a generalization. I would like to see a realignment of team categories. I personally think there should be only 3 classes. AA, AAA and Major. A player list of those who are all world and all nationals could be developed and from that you could possilbly see who is trying to sandbag and restrict loading up of these calibur players on anything but major teams.
To have so many classes seems like the lower ones have full brackets and nobody wants to play Major plus.

Discussion: Wish we could put the illegal bat doctoring talk to rest

I am not on the board that often and Not that I don\'t think its bad but this board has so much more it could provide, I wish we could also try to focus on something besides the 1% or less of seniors that use an illegal bat. I really don\'t think any bat I have swung beats a U2. I don\'t think a shaved bat of USSSA or ASA can be as good with all the altering in the world. Even so, an altered bat doesn\'t replace technique. 99% of the guys here are clean, so lets get some positive talk like tourney changes, consolidating some of the senior classes so the major plus\'s have more teams, centrally locating the worlds, adding mvp, offensive and defensive awards at worlds.
Let the bat manufacturers put tamperproof caps, bigger end knobs, microchips inside, if associations bitch enough, perhaps this will come to pass and make the doctoring
too hard to do. Lets get some talk of getting more non US teams into the world tournament and maybe getting senior softball into the Olympics. Maybe even Fran for our next president.

Topic: Tournaments
Discussion: Players need to rate tournaments....

I thought the Midwest was first rate all the way. Clean and nice with Vendors. It felt like a major event. The Eastern nationals at the Alliance location was run okay, but the fields were dirty and not fan or player friendly. Food stand underpar, a long drive from the hotels and just in bad shape. Weeds on the track, dirt and dust everywhere, no blacktop and little shade. If it had been hot, it would have been brutal.
Also to make the tournies more top notch, why don't the teams get a vote for an overall defensive and offensive MVP from each division. Tournaments of this calibur should have the managers vote on these two awards that are given in most top end tournies. Just some little things like this and better facilities should be offered at the bigtime tournaments.
Nice to have water on the bench's like we do and tarps above the dugouts. Much appreciated.

Discussion: Congratulations to the Milwaukee Merchants

While I didnt play in your division I saw part of your championship game and you guys flat out hit. You just laid a base hit exhibitiion on a very good Roberts team. Every ball your team hit was at a gap and even ones that were not hit well (very few), were in holes, so they were good to go. Merchants is a super smart team to be sure.
I thought the teams I saw in the major division besides those two, all hit very good but defense ended up being a big factor. Sweet Construction could have won it too. They have a few guys who have some unreal power for seniors. Looks like you will all have a fun Seattle tourney
with a ton of competition but I am sure the east will prevail..

My buddy heard that. Did anyone go and how was it. Worth the money? I think it was 225 dollars.
