Your sorta wrong about the stamp. It means the bat is a replacement of a broken bat. But I don't believe the Ultras have any warranty. As far as your theory on shaving bats, you're completely wrong. A shaved bat of any type out performs any bat. Its a durability issue. That's why I thought it was kind of funny a bat that looked brand freakin new was cracked! That's why I broke it open. Our district ASA commisioner inspected the bat and agreed it was shaved. Again, enough said from people that have no clue about this issue.

By the way, if the owner wants the bat back they can contact me.

As far as stealing the bat, it was left next to the trash can. It was cracked 1/2 around and the paint was new. Also the cap had a warranty stamp which lead me to believe something was "funny" about the bat. I was under the impression that Ultras don't come with warranties??? Also, I have thorough knowledge of how these bats are made. There is NO tooling marks or a ridge at the taper when they are origonally made. I have an extensive background in machining and extrusion. Some of you may not understand that, and I'm not knocking you for that. The wall thickness on those bats has a tight tolerance and this bat didn't meet that tolerance. Hmmmmm is right. I'm sorry I brought this up. Cheaters will cheat and the rest of us will play by the rules. I don't need to prove anything to anyone on here. Everyone is an expert in their own field of business. I'm sorry that mine is in the machining and extruding business. Enough said!

I KNOW it was not a bat owned by our team! And its impossible to say who left it behind because OTHER age groups used the same field! I'm not accusing ANY team! But I know I don't even own a Ultra 2 and never have. I'm sure the bat was laft behind by accident. Again, NO ONE on fredericks owned that bat! And I know it wasn't any of the Gekle guys too.

First off, Congrats to Frederick/Turkey Hill on winning to 50 Major+ Bracket. It was a TOTAL team effort! Now for the second issue. This is a MAJOR issue. I played for Fredericks and I found something very disturbing. Before the championship game I found a cracked Ultra 2 leaning against the dugout fence. I wont say whose bat it was, other then I know it was from another team. Well, I brought it home and hit BP with it last nite until it broke completly in half, only to find that it was SHAVED! I was a machinist for 19 years and you could see the tooling marks from the lathe and the ridge where the tooling stopped! Unbelievable! Shaving Ultra 2's is insane! I just hope whose ever bat it was, they don't do it again and hurt someone!.

Congrats to a VERY tough Morgan Keegan Team out of Fla. They won the 50 major bracket by beating Fredericks Chevrolet/Turkey Hill team, which is a Major Plus team from Pa.

It is a difficult situation. Triple A teams playing against Major plus teams. I play Major Plus for Fredericks, and to honest, there's not that many tournaments for us to play in that have a good number of teams at our level. I think a better equalizer would be the "1 up" Hr rule. We played that earlier in York, Pa and it seemed to work just fine. Again, I'm new to this senior softball, and the biggest problem I see are all the different rule inconsistancies. I'm 50, so I've only played in 3 or 4 tournaments so far and at times I have a hard time following the rules because they change so much throughout a single tournament. This needs to change! Tournament directors and umpires ALL need to get on the same page.

I agree, the protection for pitchers rule has some clarification issues. The umpires, players and coaches all seem to have their own ideas of how the rule works. Everyone needs to get on the same page. There are two easy ways to fix this problem. But no one would ever agree to either. The first would be to get rid of the "senior" bats and use "u-trip" stardards bats and second would be to use a pitching screen.

The 50+ Major bracket was won by Frederick Chevrolet. They fought their way back through the loser's bracket to "double dip" a tough IMS Dogs team. The only complaint of the tournament was with the inconsistancy of the rules as far time limits and the free run rules. other then that, everything ran smoothly. Oh, except for a 35 minute sun delay on saturday after noon.
