Discussion: Doctored Bat in Seattle?

Lou,
Actually it wasn't I that protested the questionable bat. My team was sitting in the stands with a representative of a bat manufacturer discussing how the ball flies off of that blue Sunergy CNT. He had watched our game & the championship game with the Mavericks & also marveled at how far tha ball flew off of a ASA legal bat. Not sure who protested it. The next thing that happenned is that a known bat doctor & the tournament director got together & took the bat. Each association has it's own fee structure for protesting bats & it is a pricey ordeal, as they don't want everybody protesting each others bats, just to get them out of the game. The team manager should be the person protesting the bat & then they usually send it back to the original manufacturer for them to check. Usually the only thing that happens after it is found to be altered, is that player faces suspension.

I wasn't going to mention names. Not my style. I can't fault the team. Only one person used the bat. I have been competing against those guys for years & years. They have always been a great bunch of guys.

The person & bat in question played & used the bat in games against my team. Now remember, Senior Softball allows the use of Miken UII's. This person decided to use a Blue Easton Synergy which is ASA 98 approved. We played against him in 4 different games in Seattle. I would say that 80% of the balls he hit were home runs. Not your cheapy, barely clearing the fence home runs, but monster shots. One of the home runs hit the top of the light pole & the ball was still rising. They beat us 2 out of the 4 games. Thats life. There are a few guys on my team, including myself, that own the same bat. The bat, even broken in, doesn't compare with any UII that I have ever hit.
I hate losing any game! My team looks forward to playing any team on an equal playing field. Cheaters need to stay home! Anybody can contact me.

Oh Yeah, I have been an ASA Player Rep for 15 years, so I have been quite involved with bat testing issues.
