Topic: Bats
Discussion: Dudley Lightnings Breaking Under 300 Swings?

Tim I agree with your question why a 40+ would use a senior bat especially if they have the power to hit home runs.

I help a team in the young league.
The other night this guy hit a line drive out of the park with
a UTrip bat.
After game I ask him how old he is, the answer 45.
He is about 6'1" 220 maybe.
This guy would go thru multiple senior bats in a year.

My best so far is the base of fence with UTrip bat. I do not believe I can hit a ball any better than that one.

Discussion: Dudley Lightnings Breaking Under 300 Swings?

Bruce, how do you get 2000 swings on a bat in a fairly short amount of time.
Do you use it in BP all the time??

I've tried counting and just can not seem to get counts like that overall.

Now I do not have many chances to take BP. Seems like all the guys I know just do not do BP.

Discussion: What is or what makes a player a major plus player?

This is an attempt to put another twist on why there may not be as many M/M+ players.

Lots of guys are not comfortable trying to catch a wild bouncing ball hit by a major/major+ player. Very few seniors
can handle a M/M+ players strikes to the ground or line drive up to head high.

I try to hit ball in the air as lots of the players in 2 leagues I play in are not tournament players. I have hit some infielders and that is not pleasant.

Discussion: Major plus problem

Those not willing to compete at the next level breakup and help build other teams.

Guess if a team does not want to move up they can intentionally lose finishing 4th to 7th in the National Tournaments so they will not get moved up. (sorta dumb I think)

What other methods do teams and guys use to avoid playing Major or Major Plus ?????????

Discussion: Senior bats vs. 52/300 ball

One of the Dallas area day league just selected the 52/300.
Feels like a mush ball.
After 2 games have only seen 1 guy hit a decent line drive.
Mixture of older ASA and Senior bats.

Reason it was selected was rumor that the 44/375 would destroy the New Bats that works better with the 52/300 balls ??????

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.

Discussion: Balls 52/300

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.
