Discussion: loosing toenails

Hey marklawr, wait until you get into your 70's Your feet will advance a couple more sizes by then. You need to keep your belly down though or it could be 3 sizes. Guess it is good my feet are now 11.5 instead of 9 as I can still see my toes.....

Discussion: Glove Off Season Care

Bob, never thaught about that, I rub the V in then rub a paper towel over glove to get excess off. OH, also I will use a hair dryer to sorta melt the V, forgot that in earlier post.

I would guess some weight is added. My glove is 14 or so years old and still in good shape, the ball seems to stick to the glove on near misses. I play outfield so sometimes that is very important on a last lunge catch.

Bruce hello.

When you decide to get the black Centenarian out please let us (me) know how it hits. I got one last year for tournament play and some league. 30oz balanced, swings easier than my 26oz Demarini Classic alum bat.

Ball comes off bat like the 1st legal Ultra II 30oz balanced bats, or so it seems.

Have a great day. C

Discussion: Glove Off Season Care

Wayne 37 - Next time you should get a real Leather glove. Vaseline goes rightinto my Leather Rawlings Glove.

After treating glove put a ball in Pocket and wrap up with a towel, the pocket will be perfect.

You do this in the off season, not when you are on the playing field.

Time to treat gloves for upcoming season (where it is still cooler).

Get a big jar of Vaseline Petroleum Jelly. Rub it all over outside
of glove, then rub all inside of glove, fingers and thumb inside.
The Vaseline will go right into the leather and WILL NOT BE SLICK....

Keeps gloves soft inside helping your fingers not get crushed on a hot liner or thrown ball.

Note: Will not make gloves slick, they will resist sweat and protect the leather. Gloves will last a lot longer.

Or 2. Call (must call) Direct Sports and make an offer, state you are Senior Player.

My Black Centenarian is Great. Balanced 30oz. Ball is launched like the 30 Ultra II of 10 years ago. Great Bat.

If you get one, post and let me know how you like it.

Texas Transplant - Have a good year with the Spurs.
Guess it is monkey see monkey do.. Harris Auction is moving to 70 also. The Arkies move together.

Yeah, hooverdog do not loan him your bat as he will use both hands to swing someone elses bat, you would probably get a 2 piece bat back.

Max Pitches per batter:

#1 Ball 2
#2 Strike 2
#3 Ball 3
#4 The fowl to give per survey

Discussion: More 1-1 Count Talk

Hey Ja - IMO age groups do not have anything to do with this. I have never liked the 1-1 count. I like to hit the ball hard and the 1-1 can be a limiting factor on this. A low pitch that hits front of plate,zip, you now must just strike the next pitch that is close. Takes some fun out of game for me,myself, & I.

Keep the 4-3.............

HJ - Yes it is a possibility. I schedule a blood test for all the side effects of statins every 3 months. So far this has worked for me.

Discussion: Curious about Bat Bags

Worth from Direct Sports for $54.
Big wheels. Added support on back of bag for strength.
Will carry Shoes, 3 bats, glove, cold drinkin insulated pouch, and then you can add a ton of un-needed junk. And is made of heavy/strong material.

Only drawback for me is the Fence Hooks are inside a zipper, would prefer on outside of bag.

You probably can find many GOOD Strong bags out there.

Swing - I have a 107 swings with about half in sweet area. When you hit ball hard you do not hear a cracking sound like an Ultra II.
Guess I do not have the Black Centenarian broke in. It will really be hot when it gets broken in I guess.

Discussion: AAA Home Run Outs

By limiting AAA to 3 HR's then outs can be a big savings for the bruts that can hit 10 or 11 HR's per game... Now they can use a thickwalled bat after hitting the 3 HR's in the 1st inning and not have to put out big dollars buying 4 or 5 composit bats each year.

Simple solutions, inc.

Discussion: AAA Home Run Outs

Hey BigCat Seven -
You are shouting.....

I workout year around... WHy I like it... Helps golf and especially Sometimes Hitting A ball out of the park.

I see and know guys on other teams that hit a ball out quite often and they also hit line drives depending on the situtation. Could they be M or M+ players. Well May Be...

Nothing wrong with one guy getting to play on a local team and hitting a ball out now and then. Now, if your team has 4 or 5 guys that hit the ball out, then you are M or M+.

What happens to this local guy, hey (and I) gets walked quite a few times. That is life and Senior Softball.

There is a M+ 70 team in Texas that has no one to play, so for 2013 (dam that sounds strange 2013) I hear they have disbanded. Hopefully those guys can find a place to play.

See you down the road.

Discussion: AAA Home Run Outs

I am on the 3 hr then out for AAA side.

30 runs is 30 runs. It makes a difference how you get them.
If you get 10 or 15 or whatever via the HomeRun you have a M+ team. If a team is AAA the 3 and out gives the defense a chance to get outs verses a M or M+ team beating the crap out of a AAA team using HR's not giving the defense a chance to get an out.

That gentlemen is the reason for 3 and OUT.

JMO (but it is a fair opinion lol)

Discussion: AAA Home Run Outs

jmo - agree that 3 hr then out for AAA is a good rule.

If my team had 4 hr hitters and 4 that can hit 1 most games then my team is definitely a major ball club. jmo....

Now on the lighter side a solution to M+ having no one to play you could combine the M and M+ and make them use wood bats. Then you could have unlimited HR's and a 7 run per inning limit. This is about the only way I can see to actually combine the 2 groups.

I have played against legit M and M+ and always got beat by the legit guys because every player could hit, field, throw and run very good.

merry christmas to all

Discussion: major plus teams

taits - I do not have an answer, whoever makes a decision really needs to think about it.

If you get so good your team is dominate then U move up, break up or move down 5 years. In some cases it would not be fair to the 5 year younger team to be forced to compete against the team moved down..

Not Easy.
