Discussion: Plantar Fasciitis

YOU GUYS are great ! thanks for all your input, i will try the recommendations mentioned on here.

since i retired 7 years ago , i have switched to nothing but sandals day in and day out, unless i am playing ball. maybe this has been the cause of the problem.

hopefully this post will help some other players avoid the problem in the future.

thanks again! frank a HARRIS AUCTION 70'S .

TITANHD- if you are referring to shoes, it's no. i was wearing the cleats that have the 9-11 spikes in the bottom when this pain started. i have switched to shoes that have the small dibs , hope this switch helps.
i ordered some spenco polysorb walker/runner inserts this am , hope they do the job and relief the pain. have an appt to see the doctor and get his opinion.

i appreciate your responses ! thanks to all.

Discussion: Plantar Fasciitis

THIS PROBLEM started about 6 six weeks ago during a tournament in houston. the pain in the heel was terrible. bought some shoe inserts from WALGREEN'S, did not do very much for me.
i didnt do any playing for 3 weeks and i'll be darn if the pain came back during a game. it's been 6 weeks now, and it's still around, though not as bad. havent played too much nor tried to go at full speed when i do run during a game.

QUESTION: what you boys done to ease the pain and did it work ??

appreciate any input based on your experience.
thanks,

Discussion: BLACK MIKEN ULTRA 2 PROBLEMS FIXED ?

WAYNE 37- i read someplace that the composite bats get stiffer as time goes by. not sure if this means they get brittle or harder to break.
nobody knows the answer because they normally dont last that long with a normal hitter.

see ya tonite, i will give you an extra 25 ft in right field now that you warned us about your new miken.

Discussion: 2 piece Ultra broke after 6 games..... extremely disappointed

this is not right. call miken, tell them your situation, maybe you can get an RMA and return it to be checked out.

you got nothing to lose at this point !

Discussion: BLACK MIKEN ULTRA 2 PROBLEMS FIXED ?

MIKEN had a batch(s) of the regular ULTRA 2'S a few months ago that " had no pop " at all. as far as you know has this particular problem been corrected ?

i bought one that was a dud, sent it to miken and got it back as being okay. i finally got rid of it.
i switch to a reebok melee balanced and this one is getting hotter and hotter as time goes by, BUT as far as i am concerned , it does not compare to a regular ultra 2 .

so , is the miken ultra 2 back to normal as far as manufacturing ? no more batch problems ??

Discussion: CELEBRATING MEMORIAL DAY

have a great time today today in celebrating this special day. time to watch parades, bbq at the park and back yards gather with friends and family.
BUT take a few moments to honor the men and women who died in war to preserve our freedom to be able to
do and enjoy our liberties.

we attend a memorial day service every year at the local park where the names of the fallen are read to honor their service and final sacrifice to keep this country free.

the shame is that the attendence is getting smaller every year, very few kids are in attendance, and most of the adults are older people.

have a great day !

Double 10 : yep ! understand that terry p. suffered limited damage to his home during this last tornado . maybe it's time to consider moving, if there is such a place one might consider moving to that might be safe from nature's fury.

Discussion: Catcher's verbal interference

at our age, a lot us are easily distracted , BUT it should not be a problem. the batter is supposed to be focusing on the pitch, and a catcher making noise is not a big deal. if the catcher is screaming, that could be a diff story, the ump should get it stopped. my .03 c .

Discussion: IT IS A GOOD DAY

us navy- destroyer sailor,(volunteered) 1960-1964 . operated off the taiwan straits off the chinese coast. made it also to hong kong, subic bay, japan, south korea, formosa,and some other choice vacations spots, all free of charge of course.
after our tour was over in that area we were returning to long beach,ca. when we were diverted to the suez canal to proceed to cuba where the confrontation with russia was heating up. a few days later we were diverted back to long beach, apparently, NIKITA KRUSCHEV blinked and pulled the missiles from cuba.

to this day , not too many people realize how close we came to world war 3. if you were too young and did not realize what transpired in the cuban missile crises. then you need to see a movie named " THE MISSILES OF OCTOBER" with william devane as president john f kennedy. kinda long , but it will keep you glued, there was so much behind the scenes actions that occurred with spies, ambassadors into trying to stop the actual confrontation. this movie is not fictional, pretty close to actuallity.

Discussion: loosing toenails

had the same problem a couple of times, i decided to trim my toenails before tournaments and it stopped my problem. guess the running caused my toenails to be jammed into the front of the shoes. try that next time, or try a small piece of foam jammed into the front of the shoes to cushion the jamming. good luck, my .02c.
