Topic: Bats
Discussion: new bat

I always use a neoprene bat sleeve for hitting practice balls.(you can find these at softball.com) Seems like it would give the bat longevity. Recently I purchased some soft training balls made by Easton. Though the ball doesn't have the same pop, you still can tell if you hit it well. Has anyone else tried these? You could hit hundreds of these without harming your bats.

Gary 19,
I was wondering if you were pummeled repeatedly when you were in school. Or has your charming demeanor developed in your latter years? Do you create as much turmoil in person as you do on this board?

Discussion: Why??????

GREAT ENTERTAINMENT!!

I've been reading these posts since I started Senior Softball back in March. It has not only been informative, but entertaining as well as amusing. Some fellas find the constant jousting as offensive. I guess everone's entitled to there own opinion. I myself find it interesting. Although TNG has some valid arguments, he seem as though he wants to create controversy, which he seems to embrace. I want everyone to know I enjoy ALL the comments. I hope they continue. I'll be in Vegas next week, maybe I'll be able to meet some of you.(einstein, stoneman,the wood, TNG, taits, lecak,etc.). I'll be playing for MI Sports. Let me know who your playing for so I can keep an eye out for you.

Discussion: Legal bats for the Huntsman?

Could someone enlighten me on what bats will be legal for the Huntsman games in October? Last year (my first senior tournament), I was informed that my Miken Freak was not allowed. Was that correct? It has a 2000 ASA stamp, and a USSSA 1.20 bpf stamp. I know the U2's weren't allowed. Thanks.

Discussion: Joint Medication

DMac,
I've had some minor problems with knee and ankle aches. I started taking Osteo-Biflex, an over the counter pill that lubricates the joints. Seems like it worked for me. Played in the recent Vegas tournament, using a lot of the info that the guys have given me. Came away from the tournament with some minor soreness, but no pulls. Of all the info I received, your statement on running relaxed probably benefited me the most. I also like the full length compression pants. Thanks for the tips. Are you going to Reno? Who are you playing for? Maybe I'll see you there. Good luck. Pete

Discussion: pulled leg muscles

Well fellas, I sure have enjoyed all the great replies. It's not as tough as I thought it would be to decide on which path I need to travel. Do I want to continue the kamikaze style(I'm half Japanese) and play for a few more years, or do I pace myself and continue to play this game that I 'm so absorbed in? There's a fella in my home town by the name of Porter Phillips. I believe he just turned 75 and plays for the Arizona 75's. He's freak of nature an awesome ball player. I realize if want to play for many more years like Porter, I'll have to tone it down a little. Maybe let that "wild hair" surface occasionally like "the wood". Surf 88, my hats off to you if you travel that far to practice. I live about 6 hours from Denver. DMac, you said that you had a 1 hour ritual before games. Could you share some of these rituals? Hope to meet some of you guys in future tournaments. I'm playing for Scrap Irons 50's.

DMac,
I find your comments both interesting and informative. So I'd like to pick your brain a little for some beneficial insight for my future. Your statement about lack of ability struck a nerve. Although I don't think I lack ability, I may be lacking in the common sense department. For the last 17 years that I have competed in softball, I have felt I have held my own, even against the young bucks. I have always took a special pride in my speed. I have always been plagued with the soreness, but the pulls started 4 years ago. I pulled both hamstrings at the end of a season. I let them rest over the winter, vowing that I would take it easy the next season. At my first at bat I was going to run at about 75%. At the crack of the bat I went full speed. Running at partial speed was not an option. I have always played at a "balls to tha walls" pace, which still includes head first slides and dives for balls. I realize that this is part of my undoing. Are you saying I should act my age and slow down? Or do I just need to utilize some of the techniques posted? I know I possess a liitle of that machismo attitude and I like showing off for my sons, especially my son that plays high school ball. What do you or anyone else out there think? Do I need physical or mental help?

Lefty,Surf and Gary,
Thanks for the tips. Lefty, I'm going to try and substitute my stretch wraps with the neoprenes next tournament. Surf, I live in eastern Utah so I don't make many practices. I'll update you on the ultrasound once I start using it. Gary, I've tried a few different back crackers, didn't work. I also presently utilize one knee brace, helps with my bad knee, but not the starined muscles. Thanks for the tip though.

Hombre, I've found a chair with some wheels and tried it for about 15'. That's all the room I have in my trailer out here at my job site. Feels like it's going to work for me. Can't understand why anyone wouldn't at least try your cure. Maybe they are just gluttons for punishment. As for worrying about people laughing at me, I could give a crap. The ones that laugh are usually the ones that are lacking in one way or another. I'll up date you in a month or so after the Mustang Tournament and hopefully it will be a favorable report. Thanks

Discussion: under armour

Hey Guys, Thanks for all the good advice. It's great to have this type of resource to be able to obtain all this valuable information. I have been to sveral chiropractors and none of them have had this good of advice. I was wondering what full length under armour bottoms are better, the heat gear or the cold gear? Or both for different seasons. Also, is anyone out there from the Rancho Cordova area(near Sacramento)? I grew up ther but haven't been around there much for the last 26 years. I reside in Utah now. It would be cool to hook up with someone in a tournament somewhere. Thanks again fellas!

Hey Guys, Thanks for all the advice. It's great to have this type of resource to be able to obtain valuable information. I was curious as to the under armour. Does it make a difference if I get the heat gear or the cold gear type leggins? Also, anyone out there from the Rancho Cordova area,(by Sacramento)? I live in Utah now and haven't been in that area for 26 years. It would be cool to hook up with someone at one of the tournaments. Thanks again fellas. Pete

DMac, What's your take on the ultra sound or electric treatment to help speed the recovery of damaged muscles?

DMac, Thanks for the knowledge. Makes alot of sense. I should have looked for answers many years ago. I'll apply your info to the Mustang Tournament in a few weeks and hopefully I won't gimp myself up again.

Hoovedog, Funny you should mention the pickle juice. My son plays high school ball and he and his friends always had me fetching them pickles. I thought it was a superstition. What's in the juice thats beneficial?
