Great Posts!!

Galveston Tx 1980 Night game clear as a bell till about 12' up ,, then fog so thick it's like a blanket. The ump is going to call the game, we convince him to hit us a ball if we catch it we can play,, we send our center fielder out with a ball hidden on him, The ump hits the ball to him, we don't know where that ball went, but our center fielder comes running in with his stashed ball. The ump says "Play Ball" The first batter hit a Shot in that fog bank, I looked at the Rover, he looked at me, and we both hit the ground with our hands over our heads.. The Ump runs out,and says " Thats It, Game Over"

I tried driving that cap out in a vise, with a chisel, and it would not come out, its going to be a practice bat anyway,, so I'll just clean whats exposed and use the 3M Marine Glue, a Shrimper I work with says its good stuff! Thanks

But you know, Every Senior Major + Team I've ever seen, can Hit em out when they want,, and Base Hit at will. That USA coach shoud have had a 800 or 900 base hitter on the bench for that situation instead of 15 home run hitters. And what if.. Rusty Bumgardner,used a U-2???

Discussion: Bat Cheating...

I hera ya Einstein,, I think Senior Softball is safe. But at B L Dreams here in Tx. That was the 3rd Skull Fracture in 6 Mo. 1 Death. You have Major league and Triple A dropouts being picked up for a game of Slowpitch
at B L Dreams using one of their friends
"HOT BATS",, core .44x375 Balls,, and no equipment in he world
would save you from a Blast up the Middle from these guys.. The new Consfication Rule is working,,more and more guys are going legal..

Discussion: Bat Cheating...

Played at Big League Dreams here in League City Tx last night. A kid on our team hit a weak shot at the Pitchers ankle, bounced off his ankle, pitcher picks up the ball and throws out the batter. The umpire promptly stopped the game, consficated the bat (a brand new Freak Plus) called the Complex Director,and are Reviewing the Bat and may or may not send it off. New rule in effect at B L Dreams, since a pitcher got hit in the Head causing a Double Fracture(front and Back of Skull.)
