Discussion: Use for Broken Bats

I was changing my Serpentine Belt on my F-150 and as always you need a cheater bar, to slip over your socket wrench for leverage on the Tensioner Pulley. As usual the pipe I use every three years was missing. So I looked over in the corner, at 6-7 senior bats that were cracked on the barrel, and wondered,, sure enough ,sawed at about 20" from the knob, the U-2 made the most perfect cheater bar I've ever had, grip on the handle and knob for leverage. Anyone else found a use for old cracked bats?

Discussion: Pickle Juice

None prior to the game,, in a Tournament, at 90 to a 100 degrees 5th or 6th game when you feel the slightest tightening of the muscle, about 2-3 gulps,, lately I haven't needed it till 2 to 3 in the morning, with that giant inner thigh cramp, and start the bedroom dance!!

Discussion: Pickle Juice

It is hard for me to believe LeBron James had to miss the last 7 minutes of the NBA Championship, because of heat cramps,, million dollar trainers do not know what all Senior Softball Players know,, Pickle Juice will stop cramps..

Didn't one year at the Phoenix Worlds, Wintercrest had a display tent, where young women applied Wintercrest to Senior Ball Players, as a demonstration on how well it works?

Discussion: What's the best bat for open tournaments?

Well here's my 2 cents,, In eleven yrs of Senior Ball I've had 3 black U-2's 4 yellow combat mm, 3 reebok melee's, 1 combat ambush, and 1 combat Dirty,, I'm a line drive hitter through the infield,when I started using the ambush in tournaments,and league ball my batting avg fell from 750 to low 600's ,after 3 months I went back to the yellow mm, and my avg. shot back up,, 2 weeks later at about 400 swings the ambush cracked,,and a friend, who ordered his at the same time cracked,, maybe we just got a bad batch, but that sweet spot for me, was the smallest I'd ever used, when I did connect, it was some of the longest, I'd ever hit,( yeah, I know, over the infield) My Dirty has 800 swings on it, and is right up there with my yellow mm for avg. and power

Discussion: Sliding on Turf - Big League Dreams Fields

In Tx our BLD has had 4 different players who have slid with raw spots, that later developed into a rare Staph, because of sweat and saliva that cooks in the turf and never gets cleaned.Plus like the wood says,,you don't slide far.

Discussion: Big League Dreams Fields

I have to agree with all these Posts,,Plus not only are my knees and back going,, must be my mind also,, being 61, playing with 21 yr olds. Playing left center, a little speedy kid hit a shot in the gap,, caught it on one bounce , threw to the cutoff and the kid was almost on 3rd.. I must have been in the twilight zone..

Discussion: Big League Dreams Fields

Is it me, or does anyone else having knee problems, and back problems from playing at BLD,, I can play 6-8 games on dirt and grass,Senior ball, and feel o.k. and play 1-2 games, at BLD, with the kids, and be hurting the next day..Does the concrete base make that big of a difference, or are the kids, just running me to death?

Discussion: Reviews for COMBAT DIRTY BAT

Have 300 swings on a 26 oz balanced dirty, at 5'10 180, not a bat breaker,,playing for aaa 60 Tx. team, batting no 2,, lefty, my job is to drive the lead off man to 3rd ( who is on almost all the time),, have had 5 u-2s 4 yellow mm combats 2 ree boks, and 1 combat ambush(small sweet spot) all 26 balanced, the dirty is very similar to the yellow mm,, grip, and sweet spot,,weighed 26.4 and real quiet on hits till the 300 mark, then started to sound with a deep whump,, with a bit more pop. the the yellow mm,, so far so good,, if I get a year and a half out of it, I'll be satisfied..

Yeah Larry, that same 50 Major Team won the Rocking Reno tourney, why they had you guys playing them straight up, is a little strange..against your team they used all their home runs by the 3rd inning.
