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.

Discussion: NEW Miken Freak Black Senior bat with a 1 year warranty

If I ever wear out my Combat Centenarian I am gonna have to get me one of these miracle bats. The old CC will still launch a ball out of park. It is 3 years old now. I am waiting for it to go to that next level everyone talks about.

Congrats to Harris Auction for winning 75 AAA in Vegas.

It has been stated here the walls are all the same thickness. The diff is the rod in handle that makes the difference in weight.

The reason heavier bats (30oz) last longer is your swing speed is probably slower then say with a 26oz.

Discussion: New DBO HR rules for 2014

Tri18 - Age and Division is good to add to this.

Just my experience. Playing 65 and 70+ AAA in SPA & SSUSA I have not seen ONE TIME when the homerun limit was reached. Probably 90% of the time not one HR happened.

I have not played SSUSA National Championship tournament since 60+ days where we would have 20+ teams HR's were not a problem, we used alum bats then I think.

Played SPA and every now and then an AAA will hit a HR at nationals.

Now 50 and 55??? U guys talk.

Dawne, sounds great. Wish my team was there.

Played with Harris 70 last year. Your infields were good
with dirt. The turf should be awsome. Have played many years in your tournament (most with Tulsa Teams and Bela Vista).

Hope you have a great tournament.

Discussion: Dimarini One

This past week in a tournament my old 30oz Centenarian easily placed a ball in the 330-350' range. It is now in its 3rd year and is scratched up, however no cracks or splits are visible.

Sounds like all these new bats are so hot that 450' should be the normal stroke. The ball was 44-375. Have not hit a 52-300 though, do not know what the old Cent would do.

The old Cent is also great for hitting a screaming grounder thru infield when a HR is not needed.

Discussion: ASA and USSSA bats no longer approved for use in SSUSA play??

BruceinGa Good Morning.

From the Bat Policy above here is the approved Jan 1 2014 and later manufactured bats that are legal from Worth:

Worth
•Toxic Titan (SBTXXX)
•Toxic XXX Reload (SBXXXR)
•454 (SBRHA)
•Sick 454 Resmondo Endload (SBSRU)
•2 Legit (FPLGC)
•Legit Balanced (SB43S, SBL5S, SBL5U)
•Launch 510 (WSRSB, WSRRH)

This is what seems to be legal if made Jan 1, 2014 and later, there is a Sick 454, what is your model number, if SBSRU then your bat is legal AS I READ THE POLICY.
(that last is a disclamir in that i may not know what i am talking about, later C)

Stick8 - it was the field ump. He did not watch the runner.

Discussion: Umpire Mistake

Playing today in a tournament in Plano Tx.
Runner on 1st, batter hits a triple. Field umpire goes out on grass to see if the ball would be caught by outfielder. It was not so a triple. 2nd baseman told umpire the batter missed 2nd base. The umpire goes to 2nd base looks at tracks around 2nd base and calls batter out for missing 2nd.

Discussion: Introducing the latest technology

SSUSA Staff You guys best get ahead of this on Bat Policy Rules!

The first change is a bat curved more than .005 degrees will be limited to 17 inches in length. This should equal the playing field for the defense verses the offense with this 21 century modification.

The old crooked handle bat of the 20th century put the offense at a disadvantage so it went away.

Laugh a lot and enjoy life.

Discussion: OBSTRUCTION

Bruce, Sounds like the runner should have been advanced back to 1st base as that is where he would have made if not obstructed.Your 1st post on this appears to be correct.

The batter would never have made it to 2nd base in this case as it was occupied and he was headed back to 1st.

SSUSA Staff - Question??

I did not see Koz23's msg to sell bats. You deleted his msg. Are you going to start deleting the other guys on here that offer bats for sell, Saying JUST GOT A NEW BATCH IN call or e-mail so you can get yours.

That is selling bats.

Or, could it be these guys selling all the time here are on the SSUSA Staff and share profits with the Organization??

I prefer the board as an info board, however, we have a great info board and a place to buy bats.
