Discussion: Eye Bounch

I notice this when I run heel to toe after a ball. Try running on the balls of your feet. This should help.

Discussion: Best cleats

I have been using the Tanel Hybrid Shoe, Rev-D, for 2 seasons. I use the mids for ankle support. These are light, have good tread, and can be used on all surfaces. I play ~ 200 games a year; and, they last the season. As all Tanels, they run true to size.

Discussion: WEIGHT OF BATS

The original U2 with the ASA stamp ran
26,27,28,29,30oz. The reprints start at
26oz. The U2 usually runs 0.5 to 1.0 oz
heavier than the stickered weight.

Discussion: Vinci glove

I own this glove, as well as other Vincis. It is a LOT of glove; and, will take awhile to break in. The ball has a tendency to roll in the huge pocket. My current gamer is 13.5". You will need patience to get used to it.

Discussion: Response to Jim16 on AA Tournament Classification

Jim, this is in response to your comments on 5/4/09 on the subject of the Demise of Senior Softball. While I agree with most of your points, I have to take exception to your comments about AA teams. You stated: " Making a AA national champion is a joke and we all know it, but what can we do". I was very surprised that you would state this. Especially, after I met you in Phoenix at the world tournament, and the conversations that we had about softball. Thus, what follows is with all due respect to you and the higher divisions.

- Conversations with you at your bat layout at the Desert West Complex, you said to me that you were impressed by the quality of play by the AA teams.

- All players are not home run hitters; or, high caliber all around players. Thus, they are not sought after by the better teams. The average player can participate in tournaments at the AA level.

- I do not think it is a joke to travel almost 3000 miles to play softball. My 16 teammates and I qualified for Phoenix; and, we took it very seriously. We all have families, jobs, etc, yet we made the commitment to play.

- We were the only team from the east coast in 65 AA. The other teams were from Az, Ca, Tx, Hi, Ut. When we left Philly it was 55*F. In Phoenix it was 90-95 everyday. The above factors put us at a disadvantage.

- Each player had a substantial financial commitment, which for some players was even more, as they brought their wives.

- I know that my teammates and I gave all we had: heart, body, mind, and soul was put into the Phoenix Tourney.

- We had to come from the loser's bracket to beat a very fine team from Arizona twice to win.

- The elation, pride, relief, sense of accomplishment, disbelief, etc., that we felt cannot be described. Yet, when I read your hurtful words, it does not take away from what we did.

Discussion: a very long read on low turnouts.

Our team (cash4college) won in Phoenix
in October of 2008. We did not have to pay for the championship rings.

Discussion: Turf vs Cleatsw

Nice offer 6, thanks. Also, this will be my 2nd season using the Rev-D shoe. This is a combination cleat/turf. It is sturdy, yet comfortable; and, available in mids, & different colors.

Discussion: asa bats

Captain: I play in a few ASA leagues in
SE Pa. We started this week; thus, in the cold I use: OG RT, PSTZ 98, SB27.
When 55 or higher: Reaper, OG Flex, SCN9, 1997 Dem UD. Never used the 73V; but, have read and heard good things about it. They are pricey and hard to find.

Discussion: Who were the winners in Phoenix?

Ken: I was on the 65 CFC team. As far as I know, the 60& 65 won't have teams. The 70& 75 should be ok. Frank

Discussion: Who were the winners in Phoenix?

Cash 4 College won the 65AA Championship. It was definitely worth the trip. The Trump Stote 44/375 balls held up well in the heat. We had the privilege of playing the Kokopelli Eye Care team from Arizona 3 times. They won the winner's bracket; thus, we had to win twice in the finals: 14-13, and 17-12 in the championship game. We are from the east coast; and, had a really great time.
