Discussion: Reclassifying Teams

We got bumped to 50's Major+ as well. ( KC Barons) And I don't have a problem with it. This is where we want to be. But my problem is the home run rule. Why do we have to drop back down to the Major home run limit when playing them? We are giving up 5 runs and giving back home runs. Why not give the lower ranked team the choice, play us even up at there rules. Or take the runs and we keep our home runs? With there only being 22 Major + teams in the country the chances of running into one before Worlds is not likely here in the Midwest. Or set it up where the lower ranked team can have the 1 extra run per inning if they can earn it. But if they can't score it they don't get it.

Discussion: White Combats

I have a 28oz. white combat with 680 swings on it. And it is the best bat I have ever had. I ordered another from Kevin and it took 3 days for it to show up. Which is really nice when you are going out of town to play. I also took Kevin's advice for breaking the bat in. Which he said would help it last longer and so far it has. I would have broken 2 or 3 Mikens by now. The bat is very end loaded so if you know someone who has one ask to look at it. Because you might want to go lighter. And if you want to know how to break the bat in, contact Kevin.

Discussion: Waivers

I try to stay out of these rants that I see on here about the bat and ball thing. But this getting way out of hand. My team the KC Barons played in the Midwest Championships a couple weeks ago. And the balls they used sat out in the sun in about 93-98 degree temps. all day. They were mush, and everone was saying the same thing. That balls were terrible, not once did I hear anybody say THANK GOD they were like that. For the 5 or 6 guys who get on here and whine about the bats and balls, go play ASA. From what I understand they don't allow these killers bats. By the way the balls were 44-375 Trumps if I remember right.

Discussion: Dalton predictions : Whose yours?

Randy Smith beat us like we stole something. But we just haven't come together as a team at all this year. To many injures and lack of commitment can crush a team. But in a couple of weeks we will be right back at it. Good luck the rest of the year Bruce!

Discussion: Dalton predictions : Whose yours?

The reason we the KC Barons got dropped is because we suck. We got the number 1 seed and then went out showed why we got it. With 2 quick ugly losses. I was wondering if there is any levels below AA? On a side note I hope the pitcher for the Metro Stars is alright. I hit him with a line drive Friday. He said he was OK, but we all know how the next day can be. I am sorry I did not try to hit you and I hope you are doing well.

Discussion: Baden renegade senior bat, Bass Crippler bat

I have been swinging the Crippler for about 2months. I had one at the TOC in Feb. I didn't use it much there. The weather was to cold. But I've been swinging it alot this past month. I think its going to be a pretty good bat. But I'm waiting for Bass to offer a end weighted model. Which Bas claims is being built right now. And should be ready by May.The one I have is a balanced 28oz. model. Right now I about 800 swings on it

Discussion: The Crippler by Bass

I was close I was in the right state. And as far as size's 26 27 28 oz. balanced. And endloaded will be out in about 2 weeks all the same sizes and a 30 EL. The ones we have right know are 13" barrels and balanced. But by the time we get to TULSA we should have the end loaded models. I think Bass is selling them for around 195.00. But e-mail me and I might be able to help out with that. I don't want to get accused of making up something to sell bats. So all I will say is the one I have right now has lasted about 750 swings and is still going strong. But decide for your self. E-mail me and I will try to set up a time for to swing it. We will be in KC then Tulsa then Indy. Plus I will talk with Kevin to find out if he has someone in your part of the country if you will let know where that might be. Because I'm just like you guys I don't want to buy a bat because somebody I've never heard of says it's great. We still have guys on our team who are swinging their Mikens and Combats and they will until the Crippler proves itself to them. But it won't take to long for them to come around.

Discussion: New Bass Senior Bat

I think the bat did a good job. We didn't use it as much as I would have liked to. The weather was just to cold to try out a new bat. We haven't had a chance to use it other then in a batting cage to much. We used it in BP and all the guys seemed to like it.Kevin is still trying to perfect it. But when he gets done with it. Just like the Pinky, he going to have one hell of a bat.

Discussion: TOC - Loyce Harpe Park - Lakeland

I lived there untill last year. The county was putting in a new watering system. And when I left it was about to reopen. They are pretty good fields. Except for the bugs. But at this time of the year it won't be a problem. I was hoping we would play there. But we have to to Auburndale

Discussion: PHEONIX - UNKIND TO SPA CHAMPIONS

Webbie you are welcome. I'm just glad some guys who hadn't seen the Reebok. Got to swing it. And as far as the comment about making one feel good about hitting lasers. The bat being durable is the issue here. I don't think anyone could improve the performance of the U2 or the combats.But making a bat that is that good that last longer then 50 swings is what makes people take notice.

Discussion: tournaments for league bats only

What about AA being required to use ASA bats. AAA required to use U-trip bats. And Major & Major Plus use the bats we use now? So if you believe that the game has become a homerun derby. You drop down to level you feel safe playing.

Discussion: Battle of the Borders

Kevin I'm not trying to take sides here. But it seems to me that you you keep telling us how bad these bats and balls are. Yet you keep selling them. I don't think the .52 core ball will make it any safer out there. I was in Florida this spring. And was asked to hit with these balls. What we found was the ball had to be hit just right to get it fly out. Plus they knuckled thru the infield really bad. And it wasn't just me. We had 8 guys hitting. And it seemed to be a common problem.

Discussion: Battle of the Borders

Kevin you made s statement about the paid player in MLB. Now are we to believe the players we watched in the border war weren't paid players? Perhaps instead of complaining about these bats and balls that have turned this game into a tennis match. You should take a stand and stop selling these missile launchers of death to us dumb unknowning sheep

Discussion: Happened twice now

I have seen 2 different discussions about this new Veteran Bat. And they both have been removed. Why does this keep happening? I thought this board was to discuss our sport. And the new things being created for the sport.
