Discussion: BP Bat?????

My 30oz balanced Combat Centenarian is starting its 4th year.
I use it some in BP, most will use old alum bats.
Out of caution I bought a 2014 Short Barrel Combat Cent for $89 as a backup, may use it as a BP bat just to see how it does.
As a point of interest is the 2014 Centenarian Short barrel bat good or bad or just ok????

Discussion: Balls 52/300

Bob, the bat was not named in the league e-mail.
I will try to find out. Here is what was said:

NOTE:
I have already received one major request to revisit the balls for use in 2015. The request was accompanied by a statement from that team that they had experienced a crack in a brand new 2014 approved ASA bat, and when the owner went back to the manufacturer to seek compensation, he was denied because the bat was tested using the new .52/300 ball and we had used the old .44/375 ball in league play last year.

Mr MadDog,
our day league may switch to 52/300 because someone was hitting/testing a 2014 bat and it cracked.
The guy sent it back and was not replaced because he used a 44/375 ball our current league ball.

What 52/300 brand do you use in your league?

Good video.

Question, does your back foot come off ground when you hit?

Mine does not, could it be I am not timing my swing or chasing the ball.

In same age group you can play AAA next year even though you played major this year. (I Think).
M is say 5 and AAA is 4.
If you have 3 or less M players the team stays AAA.
If 4 players are major the team is moved to major.

OR DO I HAVE THIS ALL WRONG????????????????

Great Tx TRansplant - That would be great, it is so disappointing to drive 8 hours and only have 3 teams.
This puts the TD's in a bind but not like putting
45 seniors in a bind.
Hope all U guys have a great 2015.

stattad - The good thing slo-pitch is not baseball.
The 90' bases would be a killer. You could play at regular depth and turn lots of double plays. That might be fun though.

JMHO - A hit is when you get on base anyway possible without an out being recorded.

Now if someone would pay me $500,000 to play then I would be happy with a walk not being a hit.

Agree with coop3636 99.9%. I call it BA as OBP has to many letters.
Bruce, very interesting on double play results in 2 times at bat. In future if I bat 4 times in a game a double play will make it 5 times and count as 2 outs.

Discussion: Better bats or better marketing?

OZ40 - Yes to both.

The fact a bat has 1.21 does not mean it is really there.
Some bats push that number and some do not.
2 bats may hit the same ball 25' different.

Discussion: How to Play More Innings

Do not pitch and U do not have to concern yourself. If you pitch have good reactions or do not pitch.
Pitchers that throw a ball belt high on outside of plate best start backing up as that ball has a 50% chance of coming back middle, I know as I pitched for 20 years.

Bruce, I like your 90 min per game. That would be great.
Yes we will not get that as stated above.
How about 70 min? We may get more completed games.
I believe this could work.
With Last Inning called all games could be on 1.5 hour schedule and be on time (I Believe).

Thanks for your comments Bruce.

Discussion: 1 and 1 pitch count

No to liking 1-1 as a batter.
Can get more innings played.
My biggest problem is I am more likely to
hit one up the middle by hitting a ball that is outside
and close to the plate. I DO NOT LIKE HITTING PITCHER.

And do not like getting 2 strikes on me by taking a close pitch. So, bombs away that has an unintended chance of going middle.
