Discussion: Bat Weights & Bat Doughnuts

But just about every MLB basball player swings their bat with a weight in the on-deck circle. Maybe they should break out the wiffle ball bat? Or does it have something to do with the speed at which the ball is coming towards you?

Discussion: Bought my dad a bat... really hoping it's the right kind...

...or get him interested in travel ball where he can use it! Most of the players on here have several bats in their bag that are legal in the various associations that they play in. The three most common are ASA, USSSA, and then the Senior associations I mentioned, but there are several others and they each have their own bat rules. I'd be interested to hear how that Wanted hits, being a Combat man myself.

It looks like even though it is a "senior" league, they require bats with an ASA stamp and rating. The Combat Wanted you bought looks like a brand new issue Senior Softball bat which is only legal for use in SSUSA, ISSA/ISF, and SPA Senior Softball associations. I am sure there is someone out there that will be willing to buy it from you if this is the only league your dad plays in.

Discussion: PLAYER REGISTRATION

All new cards now expire 10/31/xx. You'll have to at least submit/pay your renewal to play in Florida. SSUSA will have you on record even if you do not receive your card by the time of the Fort Myers tournament. I went through this exact situation a couple of years ago. ( I think that's why they changed it :-) )

Discussion: Smokey Mtn Tournament

Speaking as someone who has managed a team the good thing about ISSA tournaments is there is a lot less BS that teams have to deal with than in SSUSA amd SPA. The brackets (at least when I have played in 50's and 55's for the last 7 years) seem to regulate themselves. Do you get an occasional "loaded" team that shouldn't be playing against the rest; yes, but I find that to be the exception rather than the rule. The thing that I find better is that ISSA/ISF has better "destinations" and better venues (i.e., fields) than SSUSA and SPA, in general. Most of the complexes that I have played on are excellent and SSUUSA and SPA should take note. Kudos to RB and Greg and company for making that a priority. If you care about "awards" they are better too, but I could give a hoot. My 2 cents...

Tri-State Merchants beat J Culver/Who's on First? in the 55AAA bracket. A shuttle from the parking lot to the (back) fields would be nice too! :-)

Discussion: ballantine

Hi Bruce,
There are two 50+ travel teams in the area, one out of Wilmington/Newark is Rhino Linings and the other out of Dover is First National Bank of Wyoming(DE). The contact for Rhino Linings is Rich Thomas at jairusent@msn.com. If you want to contact the FNB guys send me an email at chris_wurm@agilent.com and I can forward your email to one of the FNB players. I don't have the coaches contact info.

There is a "Senior" league that plays in Smyrna in the summer, but I also don't know who the main contact is for that. Maybe someone one the board can help?

Also, there was a post by boomer23 recently. This info appplies to you as well.

Hi HJ,

Here's some info from Softball Fans:

Small sample size, but looks like it's balanced, hot, and maybe not so durable?

Discussion: New HR rules

Hi James,
We played with the new HR rule in Fort Myers this past fall and our team (50 AAA) did not like it. While it's great that you don't penalize the batter for hitting one out of the park after the limit, we felt that it would actually lead to more sandbagging, where power hitting players are added to lower division teams for big tournaments. Some games seemed as if there was a merry-go-round going on out there (i.e. when we were in the field). That's our opinion for what that's worth. That said, it won't stop us from playing with whatever rules they come up with; we just like to play.

Ok, thanks. That's really too bad as I thought that one might have promise. A couple of the guys on my team have the older Worth Senior Toxics and the ball seems to fly off of them pretty well.

Thanks MrBill, I was wondering about this one. Now, has anyone tried the DeMarini "The One". Inquiring minds want to know.

Discussion: Any early reviews of 2012 model year bats?

I just received my new Direct Sports catalog and see that there are two new Senior bats listed, Demarini "The One" and Worth 454. Anyone (perhaps some of you warm weather guys) tried either of these yet? I'd love to hear your reviews. Thanks.
