Discussion: Asa bats

I actually have a 2003 27 oz warranty replacement model, W melted into end cap, still in the wrapper. I think it may be worth a couple bucks.

Discussion: Ulta2 with ASA stamp???

ASA stamp Ultra is the best bat ever made in my opinion. Im lucky that i have a few.
I heard they no longer had the mold of something of the sort but i believe that they aren't interested in selling a bat that performs and lasts. They can make more money selling us two or three new bats a year.

Discussion: Neck Surgery

I had that surgery about 10 years ago. I remember it being about two months or so. I know the first month i spent in a collar 24/7 and then another month or so before the i started taking BP and throwing. The collar was the worst part as you cant drive.

Discussion: HR rule - why????

I would say let them be walks in Major Plus and DBO in all other divisions. Make the plus division more attarctie and the other divisions less attractive to guys that just want to hit bombs.

Discussion: sick players at Sunset Park

You also have to wonder about team members who would sit by and watch this type of behavior if in fact it happens.

Discussion: sick players at Sunset Park

I don't think Sunset Park has anything to do with providing the water coolers. I think that is LVSSA. The scarey part is hearing that guys soak their swaety towols and stick their feet in a water cooler they know other people are going to drink water from. WTH! That's just crazy.

Discussion: Las Vegas Fields and Umpires

As far as umpires knowing the rules most the umpires don't officiate Senior ball very often it appears. It surprises me that umpires are not handed a rule sheet at the start of every day to reference should they need it. I know when I'm officiating a tournamemt in which standard rules for the organization I officiate aren't being used, our director provides us with a rules sheet. Comes in handy. Unfortunatley it doesn't help poor judgement, lack of hustle and bad mechanics.

Discussion: Desert Breeze Park

Ball bounces pretty high if its coming down at a steep angle but not too bad. I like playing the outfield there.
BP will be a mess but on Friday or early on the weekends the soccer fields are the best bet.

Discussion: Doc Romeo and Shadow Rock

Doc Romeo has a couple little league fields on one end, then i believe 4 softball fields located more towards the middle and the a baseball field at the far end.

Played at Desert Breeze last night. The base paths are dirt but the rest of the infield and outfield is turf. Good shape and will be a good place to play.

Discussion: Bat Compression Testing Device

Our NSA director in Nevada has had one for quite some time. As an umpire I'm required to confiscate the bat any time a defensive player is struck by a batted ball and has to leave the game as a result. He then uses his compression device to test the bat, and if it fails it is then sent to the manufacturer for final disposition. A bat does not have to be shaved to fail. Some will fail just because they are old.
I believe Corky has one on his truck as well.

Discussion: Hotels in Vegas

Closest decent hotel is probably the Holiday Inn Express.
4035 N Nellis Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89115.Probably 10 minutes from the park, however it is a ways from the bright lights of the strip.

JT9, just so there is a breeze you should be bone dry.
Desert Breeze is 300ft as well. I haven't played there often but last time I did I hit one out with an old Freak so it must carry pretty well. The ball always carries well in the fall in Vegas but Arroyo Grande is the Homer Dome. Ball flies out of that place.

Arroyo is a nice 4 field complex and Russell is a 2. Both are in good shape and have natural grass outfields. Good venues with 300ft fences. I play league at both. Shadow Rock is a 4 field complex and is way out of the way. Two of the fields are artificial turf outfields and nice, and two are turf and not so nice last time I played there. All four have 300ft fences. It is used mostly for girls fast pitch league last I heard.

Desert Breeze has turf outfilelds and dirt infields. Pretty good place to play ball unless it's in the middle of the summer then it's a little hot.

Fields are in pretty good shape. all have 300ft. fences and natural grass outfields with dirt infields. There are no concession stands so bring your own food and refreshments.
