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.

I have been watching the play of the new White 2 piece and Billy Blake and Dave V. have been hitting their white one. They have right at 600 or more swings on theirs when it broke. Now these are strong hitters. ^600 is pretty good. Hoping that you can get more than that is depending on how you hit the ball. I should have one in my hands real soon. We will try the true test then. Thanks for asking.

Thanks for the great advice Mike. I myself can not wait to get out and tag a few. Happy for you and what you wnet through. I am feeling really good. can't wait to hit this bat again. Are you going to Rock n Reno? That sure is a nice place to play. I got a chance to hit on the baseball fields there. Right after it poured we were swinging. Great park. You take care. See you somewhere soon.

Hey Alan, thank you for the kind words on my health. Have not forgot about the balls. I realized I put them in my shed. So as soon as I get them out of the shed they will be coming your way.

Working on the health still. It can only improve which is a great thing. The sun is out today. Yeah!

I know they are working hard to get it out. I am hoping to get it out by the end of the month. I am looking for two weeks. With the big end load it should hit some long balls. Thanks for the well wishes.

Everybody the latest and greatest Senior bat from Miken is right around the corner. The Mighty Mike Macenko Big Cat End Load is being put together right now. I am pre ordering the bats for $209.99. You can give Mike a call for some special pricing if pre ordered. The bat has a 1 oz. endload in it to have the heaviest end load in a senior bat today. The way the bat is designed because of the heavier end load it is going to give you more bat speed once you swing it.

Give Mike a call at 330-419-0205 or call call Anaconda Sports and ask for extension 115 for Frank Short.
I myself will try and answer all your questions about any Miken softball bats. I want to say that I am very lucky and very appreciative after my accident last winter. Can't wait for the weather to break so I can take some swings. Good Luck to all of the players men or woman in their softball games this year.

Lets have some fun this year!

Nice job. 600 swings is not bad. Dave did Billy hit any good? He hits it better as he gets older. Did it shark tooth bad or was it a smaller break. Thanks..

Discussion: Louisville Hyper Z

Hey Guys, I am sure there is talk about this and talk abouit that. I would take the advice from Ron Parnell. I know that Dave V has been hitting the bat with Billy Blake. If they are working on 407 swings then they are working on something that has been playing very well. Just have to keep working on it. They are getting closer.

Discussion: Softball

Patty Mac is right,The heat does effect the Trump Stotes. The heat basically effects any ball when it is hot enough. The X-Rock still has the Microcell tech. That is why the ball will play whether it is cold or hot. After the SSUSA joined with LV senior softball you saw more and more X-Rocks. The core compression can drop 50 points if it is hot enough. I have done the testing for it before. I myself would ask for the X-Rock when it is extreme hot but that is just me. Directors buy what best fits their budget. Just my input on the situation..

The name of the store is called Classic Logo. The Rep was Barry Bloom. Their address is 2940 Del Prado Blvd S Cape Coral, FL 33904. Their phone is 239-945-8811 but for some reason it says the phone is not in order at this time. Hope this helps.

Discussion: T.O.C. Bats for Winter Haven

Alan, I wish I was coming down too. Need some sunny weather for sure. TOC is a great time. I like some of the extra things they do. They usually have a nice banquet either at the Airplane Museum or at the Winter Haven baseball stadium.. Nice way to start the year off. Hopefully the temps will be nice.

We will have someone at Lakeland also. We will have a Miken rep from a store in Florida that will be helping with sales also. I am usually there helping Frank but I am not able to make it there this year. Good luck to all of the teams. Should be an exciting time.

Discussion: T.O.C. Bats for Winter Haven

Just want to let the softball players know that Miken has come out with a T.O.C. bat special for this years tournament. It is a Limited Edition and Frank Short from Anaconda Sports will be selling them at the T.O.C. He will be swapping back and forth from Auburndale and Winter Haven. The bats come in a maxload and the sizing is 34/26, 34/27, 34/28, and 34/30. So if you get a chance stop by and see Frank. I actually did some hitting back in November in Florida with these bats and they play very well. So if you get a chance check them out.....

Well Big Mike is at home trying to recuperate... Thank you so much for all of your get well wishes. As you know I have given my life to softball even though I always knew that is not the most important thing in life. I am like a marine, only I am not.

Discussion: What's the best bat for open tournaments?

So we don't get to out of control. Alan I disagree with you being the most knowledgeable person in senior softball or softball itself. I think I am a pretty knowledgeble person. Just remember there is other people that know as much as you do about softball. I am by far not trying to be shitty here. As a matter of fact I am your friend. Just slow down a little bit. Combats are great bats whether it be a Ambush, or Dirty.

Discussion: Al Dreschler - Pace Softball - Suddenly Passed Away

I was really saddened when told of Al's Passing. Great guy who loved to play ball. I will always remember him when he was in Cleveland for my SPA Big Cat Classic last year. It was one of those tough days when the wind is really blowing hard and in. Nobody was hitting any out until Big Al hit 3 in a row. It was quite impressive. He was using one of the bats I sold him. We talked in between games. Like I said I will remember his smiling face after he would hit one of those high flying bombs. May He Rest In Peace. God Bless.

Appreciate the feedback gentleman. Yes the X-Rock is a little bit more money. We do make a synthetic micro-cell ball for the ISA. I will bring that up at the ISA convention.. I know the balls do have that tendecy to knuckle. Glad to see the tourney was another success. It is unbelievable to have have all of those teams. Nice job by the SSUSA..

I have talked to a few players already that have been back from Vegas. Said that the X-Rock ball was flying out of all of the ball parks. That is good to hear. They were holding up just fine in the Vegas weather. I saw where Louisville Slugger was giving some bats out to test or use. They look good in a picture that was on facebook. Looks like Ron Parnell is going to be promoting them. Could not ask for a better person. He is still doing his thing like he was 35.

Thanks Guys
