Discussion: what's the best senior bat, gave up on the gsc promises.

Salio,

From the front page on the senior softball site, click Senior Softball Store.com, go to Page 4, they have 'em for $189.95 free shipping. I swing a Reebok Melee myself, but this Combat is a great back-up.

Capt D5,

Go with the Original Combat Da Bomb (Silver). Durable as all hell and with pop. I've had one for 6 years, used it in cold weather and it's still good to go. During that time I've broken countless Miken UII's, a few of Reebok Melee's, and a Worth Launch 510. I keep it as a back-up.

Capt Kirk,

Boulder Station and Eastside Cannery are far and away the two best on Boulder Hwy, with Eastside Cannery getting my vote (nicer rooms). However, Boulder Station comes with breakfast each day and has far more restaurant and entertainment choices. The Railhead at Boulder is one of the best venues anywhere for live concerts. Cant go wrong with either one.

Discussion: WESTERN NATIONALS IN AURORA, COLORADO

G19,

So, do you believe that we should all compete meaningfully against each other and not have lower divisions, JV and lower as you state? I think that is what you're saying, so correct me if I'm wrong. Given that logic, why do high schools even have Varsity, JV, and even lower in some parts of the country? It's because of skill level. I guess if you were the decision maker, all 15 thru 18 yr old "athletes" would compete against each other in one division, right? Did any of your kids ever compete at the lower level or did they all jump right into the Varsity world. If they didn't, I bet you were ok with that.

How about this G19, at the professional level we would eliminate all lower level organizations

Football - just the NFL, no CFL or WFL.
Baseball - Just MLB, no A, AA, AAA, or Independent League
Basketball - just NBA, no European,Chinese,Italian...leagues
Soccer - just World Cup

Sport is Sport, I think that's what you're saying. In your view of senior softball, it seems your issue is that teams are not beating the best. Well, the winning team is the best that weekend, the number of teams attending is not something that can be controlled


DD (Dennis Dalton)-
The Desert Dawg 50 team will be at the Western Nationals. Looking forward to this one as it will be my first time to Aurora.

Discussion: WESTERN NATIONALS IN AURORA, COLORADO

Gentlemen,

In conversation with my senior softball buddies I've never heard the winning of these three tournaments referred to as the Triple Grand Slam, but rather the Triple Crown, which makes much more sense to me. After all, if you win all three you are essentially the "leader" of the three "categories", Western Nationals winner, Western/Eastern Nationals championship game winner, and SSUSA/LVSSA Championships winner.

Gary19 we all know that if we win these, we're not the "World" champions in the true sense of the word. Why do you care if the organization calls it that? Does it personally offend you? If you don't play this organizations tournaments, why is this such an issue? Is it just your thing?

After coming close to losing a leg due to a rollover traffic accident , I'm friggin' thrilled to still be able to play. I've had my left knee scoped three times, am bone on bone there, my right once for torn MCL, and the three surgeries from my accident. All that and I still run, so why don't you give it a rest, please.

Discussion: Can the girls swing seniors bats at rock N reno may 27th

Nedra,
What can I say? The wife's got game! LoL. Seriously though, I swung Miken for many years, just bought a new one as a matter of fact, but primarily swing the end loaded Melee and have been since March of last year. The bat just has major "pop". Like you, I was sold on it after a BP session. If you're looking to purchase one in Reno, contact Ed Andrews (Reebok rep) at 970-729-3135. He's Surf88 above.

Dave, the answer is yes. My wife borrowed my Miken Maxload a couple of years ago and I never got it back.

Discussion: "New" Worth Launch 510

HJ,

I bought one from Bats Unlimited maybe two years ago. Didn't use it much since I normally swing the Original Combat, Combat Centenarian and the Reebok Melee EL. When I did use it, I thought it was ok, never swung the original version, so don't really have good knowledge of how it compares. It probably had 40 swings on it when it snapped right at the top of the tape line while playing in 80 degree Palm Springs weather.

Bats Unlimited suggested I contact Worth, I did and they refused to even look at it, instead saying it was a senior bat with no warranty. I thought maybe they would at least take a look at it since it wasn't normal breakage. Nice customer service!!

Discussion: Miken Rep/under the lights

SD and Curveball,

I was at Hollywood Park Softball complex and spoke to someone sponsored by Miken. I was told that Miken has laid-off Corky as well as doing away with the traveling equipment truck. Would seem like Miken is going the route of retail or on-line.

mad dog,
you are right, syn+ is a utrip bat, league is asa, so that is the reason. my buddy thought the syn+ was ok, he knows now. my point is young guys using shaved bats and then having the audacity to complain about opponents equipment.

Discussion: RANKING THE MEN IN THE 40S

A couple of weeks ago in my city league, we played some youngsters clearly swinging altered bats. They dropped a 25 spot on us in the 1st inning, with some small guys hitting absolute bombs. We come up in the top of 2nd, manager calls time out and questions our legal Synergy Plus....seriously!!! Umpire removed the bat from play. Talk about the height of hypocrisy. BTW, I'm 55 and play on a team of mostly 50 plus guys.

Dave, thanks for the update. Sorry to hear the team disbanded. The Tucson Bandits were a very good 50 Major team. Lots of changes.

Dbax,
Mikey would be a great addition for Vegas, a 110% guy. That said, I'm looking to play in Vegas also. Played the last 3 plus years with Barcelona Bandits. Currently playing 55 Major but team not going. Email or call me at 310-489-4957.

Hey Happy,
Who did you play for? Our 55's Major team is losing guys to the 60's so we're looking for some "younger" players. If you played in So Cal, I'm sure you know some of us. If interested, I'll let mgr know to contact you.

Discussion: Looking to play with 50 Major team in Phoenix

Easy fellas. I posted this for an ex-teammate because he was having technical difficulties with the site. He was fully prepared to go through the approval process should any team contact him, so I take offense to the insinuation (turn2) of any wrongdoing . Without getting into details, the bottom line is he expected to be going with his old team, isn't, and wants to play.
