Discussion: New home run rules

Salio2K, Thanks for "contributing" to the post.

Dirty, as usual....you're not relevant.

Discussion: New home run rules

I wouldn't be surprised if someone somwhere has shaved a "Senior" bat, but I have not heard from anyone who has personal knowlege of it being done. I am curious......does anyone "know" of someone actually shaving a "Senior" bat?
If so, which one and how long did it last? Speculation and assumption doesn't count.

Rooster10, I think rolling a bat is merely accellerating the break in period, thus shortening the life of the bat. Have you personally known of anyone shaving a senior bat? That would not be cost effective in the least.I don't doubt, someone is rolling Senior bats.

As for my comment on HR's, it had nothing to do with the altered bat comment.....By the way, I am an earthling:-)

Aleve definitely helps..... I like the commercial and relate to what he says.

As for his speed.....There are slow runners in all age groups.

Discussion: New home run rules

I have not heard of anyone doctoring a senior bat, nor do I see any reason to do so.

Also,I am not a home run hitter and see no reason for dumbing down the game to keep "true" home run hitters from enjoying their gift. It seems the ones most bothered by HR's are those that can't hit them (even with a senior bat).

Discussion: A thought for the guys......

Since this post is "Dirty's".....I give you "ODE TO DIRTY".....totaly irrelevant to the enjoyment of the game...as is Dirty.

Out of Ohio came an oft spoken twit

who most posters thought... he's just full of s---

The more he wrote...the more came to light

And it all came to pass.....the posters were right :-)

Hey Dirty, Just pulling you chain. Maybe this will even get your post removed.

Hey Mad Dog,
I agree with you. I've talked to several players who don't even post very much due to negative posters.

I enjoyed getting to know you and your wife a little better at CST. I hope you had a safe trip home.

Good story Omar,
I agree, a U2 is worth driving the extra distance. I'm glad you got it back.

Discussion: Seniors and Home Runs

Dirty,
#1: It feels pretty good being able to play softball after a triple by-pass........technology.

#2: I always could hit pretty well...feels great to be able to continue hitting the ball hard as a senior, due to technology. Hit a couple out then........hit a couple out now.

#3: Good ball players have always opted for the best technology available and they always will and there's always been those content to live in the past. There's a place for everyone.

Hey Pete, It was good meeting you in Jacksonville. I'm glad you got to order those Southwest Shrimp at Long Horns. I got to thinking about that and had to stop on the way home for some.

On the glove issue...the guy intended to STEAL your glove...I'm glad you forced him out from under his rock. 99.9 % of the senior players I've met are pretty much straight up guys....I have NO USE for a thief.

Bruce, I take it you found your glove Saturday.

I hit a HR last year............I remember it well...........The Moon was "Blue" and "Hell had just frozen over"..........I sure am glad we hadn't reached our limit, that would have been a bummer :-)

Discussion: Knee Braces

Thanks guys, that's exactly the information I was looking for. Don, I'll see you at CST. I will also make an appointment to have my knee checked out. Hitman, I'm looking forward to Montgomery, cold and all. Express is always tough, I enjoy playing you guys. Retiring from softball is NOT an option.

Discussion: Knee Braces

I've been putting this off as long as possible, but it finally may be time to use a "Knee Brace" of some sort. I would like to hear from those that have had experience with a "hinged type" that doesn't restrict the circulation. I have tried a neoprene and wasn't real comfortable with it. I've noticed a lot of players using them, but haven't paid much attention to them.

Vinny, Yogi warned Dale about the wrong road...............He said " If you don't know where you're going, you might end up somewhere else"......

Bruce, RT does have a way of explaining things , simple, down to earth and to the point.........which is "one" of the reasons I like him. Sometimes people tend to over complicate the "game"........ RT and Yogi........same mold??????

I think one of Yogi's statement sums up a lot of the posts being referred to here.............."It's hard to have a converstation; everybody's talking too much"........... Remember, "Baseball(Softball) is 90% mental, the other half is physical".........Yogi Berra

Discussion: new to senior softball, need help

Matt, Welcome to senior softball. Bruce is one of the great hitter's in the game and his advice is well worth listening to. I have Todd's Swing Mechanics video and have enjoyed the perspective it presents. You may want to consider going to CST in Jacksonville in February. There will be plenty of softball junkies and all the bp you want and more. Curt does a great job (classicspringtraining.com).
I have never enjoyed the game of softball more than I am now. Play as much as you can. CST is great for getting a jump on the season.

Discussion: To the current 60 and 65 year old players a question for you

Great examples, they are definitely a good point of reference. Bruce has helped me with my swing. We are both left handed hitters, so I watch him closely and listen to what he says. Will you be at CST in Jacksonville?
