Discussion: Eye Bounch

I've posted this on other forums .. the "run on the balls of your feet' is usually the first solution that is offered ... I'm skeptical because I've tried this solution in the past and it hasn't seemed to make much difference.

I played last weekend and I didn't have the problem with "eye bounce" on the two fly balls that were hit to me, even though I believe that I ran to to ball "heel to toe"

someone, in another forum,suggested that running with your mouth closed was the solution ... I'm as inclined to accept this as the "run on the balls of your feet" solution

the bottom line is .. that I know thatsometimes it happens and sometimes it does not happen .. just searching for a reality check

Discussion: Eye Bounch

I'm fairly certain that many outfielders have had problems with, what I call eye bounce, when running down a fly ball.

It doesn't happen everytime I run after a ball, but it has been happening with increasing frequency.

Any suggestions on how to avoid eye bounce, or at least tame it?

Discussion: Recoil 180

I just bought a USSSA 180 Recoil on Ebay because I got a really good deal. I won't be able to hit with it for 2-3 weeks and I am really curious about it.

Some say it is hot out of the wrapper and others say it really needs time to heat up. Any feedback on this?

Some of the hot bats I have hit with are an Easton SCX2, Worth Booger, Resmondo Mutant, Ultra 2 and a Combat MM Senior. Which of these bats would be closest to the performance I could expect from the 180 Recoil.

I have read the reviews, but I'm curious to get feed from this forum

Discussion: Search for Easton Reflex

I have a 28 oz but I don't want to sell it because I'm able to sneak it past the umps in my single wall league. I'm just curious why you want one, since it is rated as a double wall by ASA and there are many hotter double walls out there. Or are you in a situation similar to mine? It is hotter than most single walls that don't have a separate handle, like the White Steels

Discussion: Wanted .. Fall league in SF East Bay

I would like to find a senior team that doesn't play on week day mornings. I played with the Creakers for a while, but dropped out because of the week day game schedule.

I'm 63 and I currently play in two leagues. One is a rec league in Walnut Creek that has unlimited ages and the other is a "Senior " league (over 35) in Lamorinda. I would prefer to play on a team with players closer to my own age.

I would be an outfielder or 1st base.

Home brewing and trap shooting ... I'm crazy about both.

I suffer the same inconsistency in trap shooting as in softball. In one game I might hit two line drives and a gapper or it might be two weak grounders off the handle and 1 lazy fly off the end of the bat My trap scores mimic this kind of performance

Discussion: Does anyone here play ball with their son(s)?

I've played with my son in three different leagues .... usually as a fill in when his team was short players. I'm not sure what I like more, when I put up better numbers than him or when he does really well.
