Discussion: Best ball in Hot Weather

You guys are all so funny talking about the Baden Fire like it really is a 44-375 ball. The reason it holds up so well in the heat is because it just might be a 47-525 marked 44-375. I think Kevin has the ball everyone is going to want.

The balls in question were very obviously a different grade of cover and core. Heat and storage had NOTHING to do with it. It was an entirely different ball.

Discussion: Ball B.S. In lee county

While it is true that the summer heat [March to October]in Florida does have an adverse affect on the softballs we use, this months FHC tournament was played with a lower quality version of the Trump Stote. I was told that they ordered the normal balls but what they got was all that was available. Supply issues have been the norm this year. Even Dudley has not been able to supply enough Stadium balls to USSSA. No conspiracy involved, just issues getting balls made and shipped in a timely manner. The FHC tried to do the right thing but it was outside of their control.

Different grade of the same ball. And yes the SSUSA stamped ball was awful compared to the FHC stamped ball.

sorry Perl, you must have posted while I was typing.
The whip strip is indeed a good product.

Discussion: How to get more teams willing to play in the Major-plus division

Having played for 3 years in the Florida Half Century [unlimited hrs] and having played a few SSUSA type tournaments let me say this. It is ridiculously easier to hit with a 4-3 count instead of a 3-2 with no extra. A 3-2 count and umpires who can't tell 15' from 12' when you have a strike on you and the games get much more competitive. Even in the Super A division [top 5 of 85] of the Half Century I would bet that the teams average 10-12 home runs a game [or less] over a 4 game weekend.
I can absolutely guarantee you that with a 4-3 count that number would be more like 18-20.

The dramtic levels of flex you see from TV and some cameras is an optical illusion created by the camera lens. This video should put all of that to rest

Discussion: The Villages softball tournament

BJ, We were using balls that no longer had printing on them. Yes every once in a while you would hit one that was somewhat ok. But the majority of the balls were very old. 44-375 balls do not go splat in 60 degree weather unless they are very old. I hit Trump 44-375 balls in league every week and once a month in the Florida Half Century. These balls were worse than anything we hit all year long including in the hottest months of the year. 50 Major Plus or even 50 Major teams should never go an entire game without a home run. I'll just make sure to remind teams of how the people at the Villages think its funny to make teams play a tournament with year old balls. You talked to one player, I talked to a bunch of people who live in and play ball in the Villages and they said that they are sick of the crappy that they have to use. The same ones they use every day of the week that were used in the tournament. A three day tournament is an expensive proposition for players. If The Villages wants to be that insanely cheap, there is no reason to play there anymore.

Discussion: The Villages softball tournament

Lefty, I heard that after hitting some of the balls in bp, both declined to participate. As far as Team 1, they easily had the most power of any team there and they did an excellent job of using the wind that was blowing out to right center. Their pitcher did an excellent job keeping their opponents from doing the same. I can assure you that none of the 50 Gold teams were happy with the balls. In fact not a single person I spoke to was. And I asked a lot of teams. We will just have to hope whoever runs it next year will allow decent balls to be provided. The idea that such a great tournament would be played with balls that had been used all year by the rec league is a joke.

A great deal of people skipped the home run derby for the same reason EVERYONE was upset at this years tournament.
The derby and the tournament were played with the used rec league balls that some didn't even have printing on anymore. Hank Garris one of the greatest hitters ever in the game hit 4 barely and 1 bomb to win the derby. One of balls used in the Miami Power Team 1 losers bracket final actually had a broken core. I bounced it on the sidewalk and it went sideways. When you hit a 44-375 ball in the early morning with high 50's temps it should sound like a cannon going off not like a wet sponge. Anyone associated with running this tournament should be totally ashamed, embarrassed and called out for being so cheap and or clueless.

Discussion: the new bat "Nightmare"

I'll say this about my dealing with Kevin aka Tattooball.
I was fortunate enough to get one of the first production Nightmare bats. When I got the bat I told Kevin that after the break in process I would make a video review.
Kevin told me the following.... if you roll the bat it will break right away and whatever your opinion of the bat is, be 100% honest. Good or bad. He insisted that I be totally honest in my review even if I hated the bat. What I learned about the Nightmare is that it is a stiff feeling bat that performs very well even when it "feels" like you missed the "sweet spot". I am definitely a bat breaker. Bats that don't break right away like the Legit will get too soft to perform for me. My Nightmare lasted me 1100 very happy swings. An Ultra 2 pc 200, Reebok 275, Legit 300 too soft. Is the Nightmare for everyone? No way. Some people won't be able to handle the big end load. Some won't like the stiff feel. Some people simply won't like Kevin LOL. Me personally, I am thrilled and I hope to shoot some more video tomorrow morning with my second Nightmare. My youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLiacdL27kS55sZDHZMyVD2EIoWWzWgAe2

Discussion: 27 oz Nightmare video

TerryN you are welcome.
The Blue Flame I am using is about 3 years old.
It is extremely adjustable and is currently set to throw a 12' arc. As its names implies [UPM45] it pitches to 45 mph. The Black Flame machine UPM60 throws up to 60mph.
You can quite easily dial in whatever arc you want and it is very consistent. The only variable being the weight of each ball.

Discussion: Nightmare bat approved

This bat is the real deal. Those of you that know me know I have swung just about every bat out there. My favorite bat is now the AD Starr Nightmare. I have 750 swings on it and it is amazing. In fact I have ordered a second one already.
