Last year at the Worlds in Vegas we went through almost 500 dozen X-Rocks for the tourney. This year we have over 600 dozen put aside for this years worlds in Vegas. Can not tell you about next year but I do know that this year we have a number of balls ready to be hit. So it should be a shoot out again. Good Luck to all teams that make it there.....

What you need to do is call me and I will be able to help you in certain situations. I believe my reputation speaks for itself. If you call Anaconda you get random sales persons. If you call me you will get a softball salesman that does care about the players and respects the buyer. Some things I can't change but with me you do have a chance.

Paco 13 is right. We have the Senior Gear and the Twilight for 99.00.. The Senior Gear is a great bat with as much pop as a lot of the other senior bats. Yes the end cap can be a problem with a lot of different types of bats but Combat has had it's share of troubles. The Twilight never took off because of a couple of different reasons. One being that it takes a long time to break in. It is worth the money especially if you break a lot of bats. Just my 2 cents that ain't worth much. Anyway give me a call if you need a good cheap senior bat. 330-419-0205.

Oh by the way the hip replacement did kick my ass a little bit but I have started Physical Therapy and I will be ready to roll some time real soon. Have a great day and a better tomorrow.

I sure hope Patty Mac is on the uphill. My prayers are with you brother. It's been two weeks for me on the hip. I am trying to take it one day at a time. You do the same and we will both be playing again soon. God Bless...

Dandy12, yes last year I was struggling with the hip and not able to swing like before. After 3 cortisone shots it was time to do something about it. I just had it done on Tuesday and feel a whole lot better without that constant pain. I had a great Doctor in Keppler and he did a great job. I got home Friday and I am feeling pretty good already. Doing my exercises and the hip is doing great. The doc said the hip was in bad shape and needed to come out. Had some bone spurs involved in it as well I am already able to walk without my walker. I am in no hurry. Just want to take my time. So far it has been great.

Thank You for the well wishes form players. I will take it like an AA member. One day at a time.. Ha! Ha!

Thank you for the get well wishes. I tried to go with a couple of cortizone shots to make it through the summer but it did not work out like I was hoping for. After limping and hobbling around for 5 days in Reno I have no other choice but to get the hip replaced. I do have a great doctor in Dr.Keppler and am looking forward to the day I can walk and not limp around. I have read all the post from other players so I am confident in the procedure. After having the surgery for the Subdermal Hematoma in December I really feel good. No more light headedness so I am happy and really can't wait.

Gary I would like to play with your team again.

Sparky it was great talking with you yesterday about the old days with Tex Collins and the boys. The Detroit Ceasar gang... What a franchise.

Alan keep up the great work selling those bats and playing ball with your Team 1 Sports.

Anybody looking for any equipment you can call me on Monday but then I will take a week off of work. I will be back working the following Tuesday.

I have my tournament the Big Cat Classic in Brook Park, Ohio on the 4th of July. Not quite sure yet about it. Have some teams that have changed their minds because of the Holiday. Still trying to put it together. If interested call Mike Block @ 330-963-7189. Thank You.

Enjoy your weekend.

Anyone that is interested in one of these bats can give Mighty Mike a call at 330-419-0205 and get a great price for the bats. The bat weights are 26, 27, 28, and 30 oz. They are all endloaded with a 1 oz. endload. I believe you will be surprized how well these bats are playing.

You can call me anytime to discuss hitting because that is what I do best!

Good Luck to all players.

I am going in on Tuesday to have hip surgery so someday soon I will be able to swing again. I have a great Dr.named Dr. Keppler and can't wait for the pain to go away. Looking forward to the results. Everybody have a great day!

Discussion: For all that know TODD JOERLING

Sending prayers to Todd Joerling and his family. I played with so many players over the years, but I can tell you there was no better teammate or family man than Todd Joerling. His son fought a brave battle for so many years. It is so heartbreaking that this has happened. God Bless his son and his family at this time. May the Lord give his family the strength that they will need at a time like this.

The TOC is a very good bat. I don't know who is selling the bat for 159.00 but that is a good price. The bat is taking the place of the Red Max Load bat. Have sold a number of them for Anaconda Sports. It is a very good bat. Just my .02 worth.

Back from Reno today and just want to say it was good seeing a number of friends playing softball. The astroturf parks in Sparks at the Golden Eagle Complex make for some real good defensive plays. Saw a number of them this past week. The fields are awesome and I saw a few real long homers as well. Saw John Heller hit one on the one diamond that made it to the road in left field. Player from East Bay hit one over the road a little bit deeper in left center. Saw Kruegs hit a couple of tape measure. All in all the ball was flying very well. It's Reno right! Had a good time selling bats and face makss. Congrats to all of the winners in their respective divisions. I will see you at one of the next ones. The hospitality was great also at Carson and Golden Eagle. See you on the road again.....

Yes I will be in Reno to sell bats and talk softball. Looking forward to it. I hope the weather is nice. There should be some good games all around. Going to try and hit all of the complexes. Might have to stop by Virginia City and see if Big Hoss Cartwright is hanging out. Ha! Ha! Will have the new Mike Macenko Ultra 2 available along with a number of other senior hardware. Hope to see you there.

Alan, that is great news. The Big cat bat is something else. I have had some players tell me they needed 40 or 50 swings to get their bat broke in. I have also had some players say that it has been hot right out of the wrapper. Then you are hitting bombs with the wrapper.

So I want to give some words of wisdom to the softball players. Bats are their own identity. Everyone. They are made the same but some might take longer to break them in than others. A great example is when someone just recently did some testing for that purpose. They took a bat with 120 swings on it and then hit a bat with no swings on it. The bat with no swings it hit the ball as far as the one that is broken in or should we say has some more swings on it.

The point I am trying to make it is don't give up on your bats. As I said the bat might hit great right out of the wrapper. You have to think to yourself if this hits this good while the bat is still stiff and no swings on it, just think how it is going to swing with 50 or more swings on it. Alan still had the wrapper on it.

My friend Billy Blake and Dave V. have put 600 swings on their bats before one broke. I think that is great because these men are strong hitters. So the key is just keep hitting the bats. Once the bats are broen in where the stiffness goes away and the sound changes then there is no telling what the Miken bats will do.

Good Luck..

Just wanted to give the softball players a heads up about the new Big Cat End Load. The bats are in at Anaconda Sports. You can contact the SSUSA store through this web site and contact Mike at 330-419-0205 if you want to purchase one. The bats come in sizes 34-26, 34-27, 34-28 and there will be 34-30 oz. in about 2 weeks or less.

We are also selling the new Barrage. We have the Demarini One and a number of other Senior bats. Give Mike a call and shoot the you know what about softball. Have a great day and get ready because the weather is getting better.

You can check the bat out here for the specs on the bat.

Discussion: Miken's New Mike Macenko Signature Model is Coming Soon

Lefty, you are right about Miken stepping up to the plate. They continue to work hard when developing the best bats in the business. I really like my white one as well. Can't wait until mine gets let out of it's cage. I have had a number of pre-orders already this season. Looking forward to hitting the bat. I appreciate the kind words on my health. Feel better everyday. Thank You.
