Topic: Bats
Discussion: Bat Info needed

Gary,
I still have - and use on cold days - the gold Worth ESTs. One is a 26 oz 10 inch barrel and the other is a 30 oz 13 inch barrel. They still hit well with the new balls. Next time you visit Woodlawn, I'll let you try them.

Discussion: Miken Senior Bat Review- shich is the best bat of the 3?

Gary, this weekend, while playing with the fifties, I traded the 28 oz white two-piece for a 30 oz white two-piece. It's broken in and popped the ball pretty well on the two at-bats I had occasion to use it.

Discussion: FHC

Audie is correct for the FHC. But, in addition, there are several leagues - day and evening - in the Tampa/St. Pete area. The teams are of all levels. Some are nationally ranked, some not so much. Usually, you can just show up at a venue and you'll be invited to play, as they always need player.

But Gary, how can you go without your great Ultra II, end-loaded, two-piece? OBTW, it still hits with authority! LOL

Discussion: Lower Back Pain Home Remedies

HJ is correct about the piriformis problem often being misdiagnosed. It's one of the six lateral rotators that is often forgotten when we stretch. We do our "hammies" and some others, but need to do these also. Some of us have the sciatic nerve grow inside of the piriformis, some have it grow outside of it, and others have it grow through the piriformis. This is one of the reasons it's misdiagnosed. Unfortunately, low back pain is often attributed to a skeletal problem when it is muscular. Hence, the rationale for stretching. Several such stretches for the piriformis can be found on the internet. Pick one and see if it helps, but don't start aggressively with any of them.

Discussion: Solar Bat Warmes

Most of the players that use these have made them. Make a small box (an old trunk lid works), use household aluminum foil on the inside, then cover with a clear plastic sheet (the big-box stores carry this). You can add props, feet, or set them against the fence. Like armiho211 suggested, cold balls (or wet ones) might be a problem though.

Topic: Tournaments
Discussion: TOC

1billyd: Nothing new here. Last year in a SSUSA tourney, there was only one 70's major + team and one 65 major team in attendance. They had to play "even-up" with only the winner going to the TOC (the 65 major team). IMHO, both teams should have been invited.

Hey Bruce, you should visit us more often at Woodlawn. For bkb555, Dave's most recent address is woodlawnone1@verizon.net. When we see you, we'll give you all the updates. LOL

Discussion: Best Pitcher

Webbie, I have to agree with you about Bobby Davis. The only time he throws a "straight" ball is the occasional BP he pitches. Then he's like a machine! Game day though, I think he just "messes" with us 'cause he can! LOL

Discussion: Tournment Pitcher from NY looking to join a team

I would have to agree with Southernson about Bobby Davis' pitching. But, more importantly, I doubt that Cerce could even approach Bobby's power!

Warren, we hit EVERY Tuesday and Thursday at 7:30 a.m.. 'Course, if we do get rained out, there is always the fine breakfast at the old El Tenampa where we tell each other how great we were. LOL. Rainouts are few and far between, though. There's always a dry spot somewhere. Come and be welcomed!

titanhd; Pug asked about the AAA 50's, which closes one week before on August 24th. The 55's, etc., closes on the 31st. I hope that's correct - or I'll be seriuosly late!

Not so. According to SPA's brochure, the deadline was August 24th. Purportedly, the schedule is due tomorrow.

Discussion: SOUTHERN

Bruce, each team was told only the winner went to the TOC. My query; at the TOC, should the younger team play in the 70 MP brackets or should the older team play in the 65 M brackets?

Bruce, suppose - just suppose - a 70 Major Plus team was required to play a 65 Major team, the best 2 out of 3, even-up, should both teams be invited to the TOC?

Discussion: Miken Ultra II balanced and end load.

Just my two cents; I've broken four Rebok endloads (one 28oz and three 26oz) since last November. They all performed as expected but didn't last. Being poverty stricken, I returned to the balanced (black) U2 (bpf 1.21) and am sorely disappointed - and I have well over 200 swings on it. It feels like a piece of wood when contact is made and very little distance. It's been that way from the date of purchase about two months ago. Ed, I agree, the Rebok is good. But, I can't afford the cost.

Several exist. For tournament teams, try Florida Half Century at fhcsoftball.org. For leagues, check the local area (e.g. The Villages, Three Score around the Clearwater area, etc.)
