Discussion: This is for Bogie

Bogie, I hope one of your future videos includes "Cincinnati Fred" as an 80+ hitter. I don't know if you've seen him hit at The Club, but he - in his 80's, still is a prolific line-drive hitter. And, he still plays in the FHC tourneys.

Discussion: WOODLAWN HITTING CLUB?

Hey Bruce and Bogie, I'm trying to start a Woodlawn Team out of Ohio. So we're expanding. Kinda' like the chapter in Taylor, Michigan. Snowbirds, ya' know.

Discussion: 75 Year Old Players Needed

Looking for two or three 75 year old players for a new team playing out of Dayton Ohio (74's must be from contiguous states). We have players from Ohio, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Canada, so state of residence may not matter. We are a self-financed team and expect to play in several tournaments in and around Ohio (the actual number will be by team vote). We're looking for infielders and outfielders. We have good pitchers, catchers and first basemen. Text me or call me at 727.580.0876 for greater detail.

Discussion: Lookin' Ta' Play

Okay, I just learned that my 75 team is not participating in the Spring Nationals in Florida. So, if anyone needs an extra…. My bio: Dave, George, Frannie, et alii, have theorized that I may be rated “major” (but you know the rating system), which means I can play 75 AAA, 70 Major, 70 AAA, or one of three (3) 70 AA players (or younger - LOL). I’m “Florida eligible” or, if the 70’s, it would be in a “snowbird” status out of Ohio. My batting average – USUALLY – is between 700 and 750. And, if I hold my mouth right, with a gale force wind blowing out and the sun in the outfielders’ eyes, I have occasional power. Love to play up the middle of the infield, but, since I still run okay, I’m assigned to the outfield (left, left center, or right center). So, if there’s a team that finds themselves in dire straits, text me, or call, at 727.580.0876.

Discussion: 2015 Myrtle Beach Tournament - March 25th-29th

Hey Nick! Glad to see a true "senior" on this board! LOL I've played 70's M+ and 75's M and, like you, play the outfield. Sounds like we should form our own team!!!!

HwyFuzz, Don't know what you really want, but Dick's Sporting Goods sells a tripod style for 'bout $25. I've used one for a coupla' years. Just something to check.

Discussion: Plantar Fasciitis

Jawood,
All the suggestions are good. I had it this summer which made it rough as I play the out field. And it resolved itself after about three months. When you're playing, use the tape remedy. The how-to can be found on the internet. One suggestion which I didn't see was use of a rigid device on your foot when sleeping. It holds your foot in a fixed position. They're advertised at varying prices, but I found one at CVS for about $35.00.
Good luck! It'll take a bit to heal.

Discussion: Seeking Info....

I had both eyes done in 2007. Best decision I've made. My recovery was much quicker than I see here. But, do the drops! They will prevent infection. I chose to do the distance lens in both eyes and I am able to read all but the smallest aspirin bottle printing without reading glasses. My night vision is great. Good luck!

Discussion: results

As I follow the Huntsman Games, I believe SSUSA could get a few pointers from them. Their new system allows hourly updates in pool and bracket play. The results are posted within two or three hours of game completion. Just my two cents worth.

Bobby hits with the Woodlawn Hitting Club in St. Pete. You could contact Dave North and he could put you in touch.

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.
