Discussion: Worth legit

Several years ago I heard that the Ultra II Balanced would not last. I had been using mine for 3 years in tourneys and play in 2 leagues. Convinced it would break at anytime I gave it away. My teammate has had it for 4 seasons. It's been in use for 7 seasons and still performs well. My new Ultra II has been in use for 4 seasons. How's that for the theory that Ultra IIs don't last.

Discussion: Cant decide on a senior bat

When anyone talks about a senior bat, there's always a comparison to an Ultra II Balanced or end loaded. This leads me to believe that the best bat is an Ultra II. I have one that's in it's 4th season and it's performance is spectacular.

Discussion: where are all the pitchers

I wear a titanium mask when I pitch. It's lightweight, comfortable and I have good vision with it. Suppose I don't wear the mask. If a screaming line drive hits me in a shin, maybe my shin breaks. If it hits me in the thigh maybe my thigh bone breaks. If it hits me in the ribs, maybe a rib breaks. But if it hits me in the face maybe it kills me. We have all read about pitchers who have died from a batted ball to their face.

Discussion: Miken Senior Bat Review- shich is the best bat of the 3?

I have used the Ultra II Black exclusively for the past 6 years. It performs better than any bat that I have used. Since I am not a power hitter the bats last a long time. I had my first one for three years then bought another one figuring (because of UII durability stories)the first one was about to break. I gave it to a teammate three years ago and he's still using it. I've been using my second one for three years. I play in two leagues and on a tournament team, so it gets a lot of use. There is no reason for me to switch to another brand.

Discussion: Boombah Turf shoes

I've used Boombah turf shoes for five seasons. I've found them to be extremely comfortable. I play four league Games a week and one tournament game a month between March and the end of November. I've bought two pair in five years and still use the first pair along with the newer pair. For me, they are long lasting.

Hj, The tips from this thread are very helpful. I believe they pertain to most of us. Then there are the "Specimens" like Fred S, Fred Purvis, and tg69.

Discussion: Texas State Championships - How were the fields and other Facilities?

I observed them replacing the infield dirt a few weeks before the tourney. We played Thurs and Fri. so the infields looked good but were full of small rocks which made for bad hops. The outfields were uneven which contributed to bad play out there.
I played at this facility in the 1980s and the buildings look like they haven't been repaired since then. The complex was in an area all by itself when new, but now it's surrounded by a commercial slum.
The heat was oppressive, but being Texans we can handle that.

Discussion: what's going on.

boogpow44, why don't you and others like you run for a league office.Just as long as you let those people run the league you are going to get the same treatment. It's time to stop complaining and do somthing about it.

Discussion: Why Do Some Guys Lose It Sooner

In a class given by Larry Wier, the Fitness director at the Johnson Space Center he explained that as we get elderly our fat% increases and our muscle% decreases.So we become weaker eventhough our weight stays the same. Webbie25 what did Fred bench at 25? What will he bench at 75? I'm happy you're still giving it a go.

HJ, I do know eye black won't make us stronger.

Discussion: EYE BLACK

HJ, Ceres was the first asteroid discovered by man. It was seen using the telescope at the Palermo Sicily Observatory. I was there in 2000 for the 200th anniversary.Ergo I picked Ceres as my handle.

jsheeran, as a contact wearer you need more protection because of the contacts effect on your eyes. When I wore them, I always wore sunglasses on sunny days.
So you're a special case.

Discussion: EYE BLACK

HJ,
I agree with your words about trying new things to see what works, but so many of us just do it for style and to look like Major Leaguers. You can see many gagets in senior softball which make us look like Little Leagers copying MLB rather than the elderly men we are. Eye black does not work for me and I have blue eyes. If you look at Harper of the Washington Nats he wears it as a fashion statement to look fierce in order to scare the pitcher.I did get a lot out of your reply.

Discussion: EYE BLACK

I don't think eye black helps at all. I thik we are sold a bill of goods by MBL,NFL and NCAA. Do you notice that some of thse players wear eye black like Tonto in the new Lone Ranger movie. I even see some of us outfitted in war paint also. It's time we grew up.

Discussion: Heart of Texas (Georgetown)

TxTran, Joe's team were champions. He thought the tournament was great.I played 70+. Even with all the problems we had, if we won the championship, I'd think the tournament was great even though it wasn't.

Discussion: Grading the Rule Changes

Jawood, If a pitcher throws fewer pitches in a game with a time limit, then more innings will be played in that game. A 1-1 starting count ensures that less pitches will be thrown. GI did the arithmetic in his post of Dec. 5th.

Discussion: Grading the Rule Changes

I play in 2 leagues with a 0 - 0 starting count and a 55 min time limit. We almost never play a 7 inning game. In Past seasons I played in a league with a 1 - 1 starting count and a 55 min time limit, and we almost always played 7 innings. A 1 - 1 starting count would be good for us and would have been good for the SSUSA.

Discussion: Why so few AA teams

A question was asked by Boston at the begining of this thread, "Why are there so few AA teams?" It was answered vey clearly by DCPete. All the other jibberish had nothing to do with the question. Let's go on to a different subject.

Discussion: Texas Half Century tounaments

The 65 and 70 divisions had only 3 teams. After playing each other several times, the Greyhounds 70 AAA finished 1st. The Texas Classics 70 AA finish 2nd and the Greyhounds 65 AA finished 3rd. Therefore the 70 AAA Greyhounds won the 70 AAA Prize. The Texas Classics won the 70 AA Prize and the 65 AA Greyhounds won the 65AA prize. It was like the Special Olympics. Everyone got a prize.

Discussion: Best website for titanium necklaces?

I believe that most of these so call aids are mental aids or fashion. Most athletes are followers. Basketball players wear compression shorts and compression sleves. In past times no one wore these and they played just as well, but after one player started wearing them they all followed. Now #6 wears a titanium necklace and it helps him in many ways, but he believes it helps him and therefore it does. Baseball and softball players are very superstitious and sometime it helps them if they do silly things.
