Discussion: Swing Makeover #12.Using a Double Knobcuff for max power and the 70's Senior Bomb Squad from St. Petersburg, Fl

Gary - Too much tape has been against ASA or WhoEver Organization forever. In '94 playing in Industral National Championshp A in Lakeland Fl. I had to remove extra tape from my bat handle befor I could bat....

The extra tape like a bat knob helped me not throw the bat on a power swing.

phantom thanks for this post.

It may be possible a bat getting cold then warmer over a winter could damage the material. Expanding and contracting.

I am going to bring my bat inside from the garage, and my glove also.....

rustoman - you may have been out to long to play todays game.

The good news is there is day ball where they use ASA bats with the year 2000 and 2004 approved bats. Here in the Dallas area there are several leagues and even different levels using these bats. I play in one of these leagues and can recommend it for you.

There may be some nite leagues that use the prior generation bats, they will be much safer for you to compete in.

Discussion: How about a discussion on ow we think dbos will effect our games? And our assumptions why.

DBO topic.

I moved to 3rd base this year from outfield because we had 8 outfielders.

Hey, if the BIG hitters start hitting down and bad bounces happen on the infield, !! There are going to be some guys get hurt bad. You do not have a chance to move with a thousands of a second on a bad bounce.

Discussion: New 2014 Rateings

The team I played on last year had a tournament record against local run of the mill teams of (I think) 4-2.

We finished 7th in SPA. SSUSA is much stronger than SPA.

AND, you SSUSA STAFF re-rated this team from AAA to MAJOR???????
I really want to say something really insulting about your
very being and mental compacity but for the life of me
I just can not go as low as you SSUSA STAFF.

We may have been able to finish 10th in your season ending nationals.

I also see where you re-rated teams that finished ahead of us down
from Major to AAA.

SSUSA Staff do you just flip a coin?????

James English

P.S. I do not normally post my name, however, I have supported you and even defended you for 15 or 18 years. I just do not understand
why you use a coin to decide your decisions.

Discussion: Time to eliminate senior bats

Gary, in November played in Winter Nationals in Phoenix. I did not see one ball hit out in the 70 Major and Major +.

Playing league 50 - 80 I did see one 50 year old guy hit 2 out one night. He seemed to be in good shape.

AND, very interesting this went from ELIMINATE ALL SENIOR BATS to ,,, OH it is the cheaters with shaved bats that is the problem.

We have a great game, just need to stop so many new rules (IMO).

S8, Yes.
65 and 70+.
These guys are a little wiser and have seen someone or been hit in the face.

If you get hit just once in your softball life in the face and 20 surgeries later you look almost normal then a face mask does not sound bad.

Note: Professional baseball players that are young and make many millions of dollars get hit.

Discussion: SSUSA AND SPA MEETINGS

rightrj1 - In most cases the org that puts the tour on gets a kickback from hotels that are on the online tour info list.
Nothing wrong with that. Also my experience is most tour's are 2 day except for nationals.
Even a 6 team and may be 8 team should only be a 2 day tournament during non-national play.

Discussion: 65 AA player playing 60 AAA

I think SSUSA has a Number that sets a level of play.
55AAA may be high enough so you will not be able to play at the 65 AA level.
Call George at SSUSA if specific info is needed 916.326.5303

Staff - If a player is rated AAA and plays in the Winter World in Phoenix Nov
12-17 in Major Class will that player now be rated Major or retain his AAA rating for 2014.

Thanks

Discussion: Hr or out

Omar - I have seen the stand and watch for only a single.

It is a good feeling to hit and watch then walk to the dougout. Note the hit & sit is SPA, in SSUSA all must touch 1 base as I understand.

Discussion: Hr or out

If you notice the ump will stop watching the runner after 1st is touched as the play is dead at that point.
In SPA it is "Hit & Sit". The ump stops watching when the ball clears the fense. The batter can walk directly from the batters box to the dougout.

Discussion: New 2014COMBAT 10" Centenarian

HJ - The key to the 1.21 is NOT TO EXCEED THAT NUMBER
not to actually get to that number.

That is why some bats will launch a ball farther then other bats with same swing speed.

Topic: Bats
Discussion: Technical Questions

HJ (jmo) I have used 26 and 30oz for years. For me a 30oz will send ball farther if swing speeds are the same because I feel my 30oz is traveling faster after the ball strike which means the bat did not absorb very much momentum as it was mostly all transferrd to the ball.

The prof for me is the ball is farther away from me with the 30oz.
