Discussion: Pitching Masks discussion

My personal belief is that anyone who pitches in Senior Softball should be well aware, up-front, as to what they're exposing themselves to. That, if they do intend to pitch, they need to supply 'themselves' with what ever equipment 'they' deem necessary to safely play the game (and survive w/o injury)! Just like outfielders tend to use larger ball gloves (better reach) than infielders (easier to get the ball out of the glove, quickly), 1st basemen often use different gloves than the rest of the infielders (hooked basket). The rules for equipment standards have been set and the vast majority of players, I've been exposed to, like everything 'except' the HR as an out concept. MY biggest issue is that if after 1, 2, 3, etc. team HRs, the rest (HRs) are going to be considered OUTs...some of us, including me, have to switch to a 'less potent' bat so we're not 'penalized' for accidently hitting the ball too far!! The popular consensus, by most 'true' ball-players (not jealous because they can't hit the ball out of the infield), is to make any 'extra' HRs singles!

Discussion: Demarini Juggernaut Geezer

Ouch!! I'm a power hitter (hard line drives &, when needed, shots over the fence). I hope I can adjust to the flex. I'm glad I didn't pay much for the bat! Thanks

Discussion: Nokona gloves

AlleninGa - Nokona also has a series of gloves made from Buffalo hide. I got one straight from Nokona last Fri (March 13th), applied the glove treatment they sent with the glove (simple petroleum jelly), worked on it every night (on my couch), and am using it tonight for a double header. It's not completely broken-in but...one of the best gloves ever made (and quite a confidence builder). My only fear is that someone who sees me with it...will want it bad enough to steal!
It's an AMG 600-BF-CW. Totally Awesome!! Fair123

Discussion: Demarini Juggernaut Geezer

Can anybody in the 50+ division tell me about the Juggernaut Geezer bat? I'm still hitting with a couple of ASA approved bats, have hit the Ultra II...but question it's durability. Never owned a 'Senior' bat but just got a smokin' deal on a new 28oz Geezer!
