Discussion: Dudley Lightning 12" barrel

Dudley is a great company and they should go above and beyond the call of duty. They have great people working with them on the bats. Davey Reed, Hank Garris. You can't go wrong with those two guys. Everybody is selling the Dudley bats. At my place of work we just got a big shipment in of the bats. Dudley is catching on quick!.

Discussion: End cap repair

Gorilla Glue, Locktite are quick fixes that work. Marine glue works the best because of the flexability in the glue once it drys. If you can get the 24 or one week repair kit will be better than the Gorilla Glue or Locktite only because of the flex in the Marine glue. Kevin Schullstrom is the person who found out about the Marine Glue. He repaired enough of them while working on the bats. Randy has the right idea. Try and clean the excess glue off of the barrel and end cap. Good Luck.

Alan, Gary, Bruce, and the rest of the gang. Thank you for the prayers and Get Well wishes. I am doing just fine now and relaxing at home recuperating. Gall bladders issues caused a real bad flare up with the Pancreas and so with a great doctor I have, he took care of the situation. 2014 is finally behind me ! Whew! What a year. Ha! Ha! Looking forward to traveling this upcoming summer watching, selling and hopefully playing some senior softball. Looking forward to the event at Vero Beach with Alan. That should be just what the doctored would order. Once again Thank You..

Your softball friend.

Discussion: Softball Spring Training Program in Vero Beach in March

I am looking forward to going to Vero Beach for the first Senior Spring Training event. Alan Tanner and Team 1 Sports are putting the event together for the senior players. It should be an outstanding time. The weather should be great and what more can you ask for in the month of March. For all of the Northern folks it will be nice to get away from the cold. So come on down and join in on the fun in March.

Neil Teague has a Spring Training deal set up in Vegas where Denny Crine lives. He has been working it the last couple of years. I would give Neil a call. I will get his phone number and post it for you. Not sure if he is doing it again or not but he would be your best bet.

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.....

Discussion: SENIOR BATS

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.

Discussion: SENIOR BATS

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.

Discussion: Miken Ultra II TOC Limited Edition Senior Softball (ULTTOC-UII Slow Pitch

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.
