Discussion: Evil Wax Bat Grip

Fred and Bobby, sorry but foreign substances aren't allowed on a pitchers or any players hand according to the 2013-2014 SSUSA rule book;

6.9 PITCHING RESTRICTIONS
Neither the pitcher nor any other player shall, at any time during the game, be allowed to use any foreign substance upon the ball, the pitching hand or the fingers. Under the supervision and control of the umpire, powdered resin may
be used to dry the hands. The pitcher may wear a sweatband on the pitching arm or tape on the fingers. Batting gloves may not be worn on the pitching hand.
EFFECT: An illegal pitch shall be called on the first offense. If the pitcher continues to place a foreign substance on the ball, he should be ejected from the ball game.

Yes, we used it in the 55s last weekend and the ball was flying in the cool mornings at 4500 ft.

Bob, a lot of the guys in our Senior ASA leagues use one of the new Eastons or the Miken Triad. All good bats.

Mauri, how old are you and what positions do you play? There are a few 50s, 55s and 60s teams in the valley that are always looking for players. There's a tournament next weekend in Phoenix, Apr 6&7, some teams may need players. Welcome to the senior softball message board.

Lou, welcome to the board. There's an SSUSA tourney in Phoenix this weekend. I play on a 55 team and we're at Desert West (67th Ave just north of the 60), come on out and introduce yourself and talk to some of the managers, they may be looking for players.

Discussion: Substitute runner for the batter

In our leagues in Az we start 6 feet further than where you are starting, basically like Curty said, behind the catcher by the backstop.

Discussion: Laughlin, nv. tournament 2013

If you mean the Bullhead City tournament across the river from Laughlin, it's Mar 4,5&6. They usually have divisions by skill level, A thru E. It's a good tournament.

Right, 50, 55 & 60s start tomorrow. And I agree having the scores posted is great, thanks Dave. I know you're a busy man but I think most of the guys out there really appreciate you posting the scores daily like this. It keeps guys interested in the tournament even if they're not playing in it.

Discussion: Miken SPU2P Ultra II USA 2012

AP, I'm done talking to Miken customer service. The USA model U2 I returned was my 9th Ultra II in the past 4 years so I know what it feels like to hit with one and what they sound like and this bat did neither. I sent emails to customer service and to your VP and neither responded so that told me how much they cared. The bat I returned was new with less than 100 swings on it so it may have passed your compression test but it was an under performing bat. I traded it for a Combat, the guy I traded it to is going to use it for BP. You were once the only game in town for Senior bats but you now have competitors with equal or better merchandise and this year you've taken a step backwards and lost a lot of customers.

Discussion: Miken SPU2P Ultra II USA 2012

My USA model is a dud, I sent it back to Miken and they said it passed their compression test and they sent it back to me. It may have passed their compression test but if you hit with it you know it's a dud. So no matter what Ap39 says, they helped some with replacement bats but they didn't help all and they lost some customers because of it.

Discussion: World Tourn. Updates

It sure would be nice if we had nightly updates on what was going on in Vegas this weekend. For the players and teams that couldn't make it and for the players that played last week and have friends on teams that they would like to know how they're doing.

$695 x 446 teams = $309970

You would think SSUSA would be able to hire someone for 2 weeks to update the scores on their website each night. Am I asking to much?

Discussion: Miken is NOT taking care of the problem Ultra IIs

Mine was stamped 1.21. I think Miken had a bad batch or 2 but they wouldn't give out the serial numbers of the bad batches, they wanted you to spend $20 to send it in and have it tested.
