Discussion: Pitching

I thought that USSSA was a hand signal, or is that just for pitches that are not in the 3-10' range ? Bench or on deck batter was supposed to let batter know. Used to be that way, has that changed?

Stick, I understand the ball call, but shouldn't he have said ball, illegal pitch, instead of ball, deep. I'm not sure that the pitcher was ever aware that he was in violation of the rules. I was the only one he did this to and it was only the one time at bat. Without any type of signal, how is the batter supposed to know he is gonna call the illegal pitch.

Discussion: Pitching

This happened to me last night in a USSSA playoff game. Pitcher was standing at least 10' behind the rubber, so I stepped out and told the ump he was out of the box. He informed me that if he pitched from there he would call it a ball. I got back in the box and pitch was delivered from 10' away. I glanced back at ump to see if there was a signal(none) and he called a ball, deep. Didn't bother to say anything(didn't want to be a whiner), threw next pitch from same spot and it was outside so I took my base. No signal either pitch and nothing said to pitcher, who only did this that 1 at bat. In my experiance it is an illegal pitch, verbal in ASA, hand signal in USSSA, and both in Senior ball. Pitching rules are not enforced anymore, no presentation of the ball, coming to a stop before ball is delivered, and no 3' hump.(USSSA)

Discussion: ASA Bats

3.4(3) APPROVED BATS
All bats marked "1.21 BPF" (Bat Performance Factor) or less, SSUSA approved bats, or bats having an ASA 2000 or 2004 stamp are approved for use. Any bat displaying the label "Exceeds 1.21 BPF" is not approved. The rating must be clearly visible on the bat, or it must be obvious to the inspector that the bat is of an age to make it not high-tech.

New stamp ASA only bats do not have the 1.20 bpf on them so they are no longer legal in SSUSA. In league ball it will depend on your league rules. USSSA bats have the 1.20 bpf so they should be legal.

Give Combat a call. They have great customer service, and there is a good chance they will replace it.

Tournment Pitcher from NY looking to join a team
I just turned 60 in October. I've been playing ASA softball actively for the past 35+ years, never stopped playing softball with 20, 30 & 40 year old league division one or "A" ball players. Winner of multiple championships throughout the 90's and 2000's.

I'm well known throughout Long island as a premier high arc softball pitcher and an accomplished power hitter. My delivery is very different than most softball pitchers. I learned years ago to deliver the ball with a spin from my right thigh making turning my wrist making it very hard to pick up the ball after release. When I move my index finger to the side of the ball, it comes down on an angle jamming the batters and many times striking them out.

I recently joined a local LISSA team age 60 and older. When I told my 32 year old son and a great softball team mate/player that I joined the senior leagues his comment to me was "Dad, 20'25 year old's can't hit you, what will those geriatrics do facing you" Funny for him but I've been around this game a long time. I Never underestimate anyone, regardless of age. I replied to my son by saying more than likely, senior players have never stopped playing the game, just like me. I would expect more talent from them than you kiddies!

With that said if you can field talented players, combining me on the mound the combination will win tournaments.

You should also know that we, this senior 60's league began practicing indoors a week ago. I pitched twelve innings of one run softball.

Discussion: Asa bats

All of the new ASA bats are made and tested for the 52/300 ball. The difference in performance for most is minimal, so swing what feels best in your hands. The hype has the Demarini J3A as senior hot, but just like the juggy and geezer, the bat has too much flex for my liking. Bats that are getting good reviews are Demarini J3A, Aftermath, Fu-Dawg, Combat Derby Boys,Wanted, Easton L4,L6, XL2, Worth Legit,Sick,Mutant, Miken Triad. Find the bat that fits you and be patient because some take a little longer to get going than others. Every time a new bat comes out it gets hyped as the greatest, but they all still have to pass the same test.

Discussion: What's the best bat for open tournaments?

I must have got a bad Ambush, because my Combat original, white centenarian, black centenarian, twilight, and Worth 454 all outperform the Ambush. 300+ swings on all of them. Ambush is not a bad bat, just not the best bat for me.

Discussion: Louisville Senior bat

For me Louisvile bats have been great performers but lack durabilty. The SB34 Genesis, Nexus (black), and Z- 2000 were all great bats but none of them lasted very long. Catalyst (which the Hyper Z resembles) was an exception, but took forever to break-in, and had a small sweetspot. Looking forward to the new Easton, which for me have the best durabilty and performance (not including first batch synergy) of any composite bats on the market. Alan, thanks for the reviews, they are vey helpful in my decision making process, when it comes to choosing a new product. In my experience, prototypes have always been hotter than production models.

Discussion: Worth Launch 2007 vs 2008 model

IMO the gold launch is a bomb dropper, but very fragile. The maroon launch has great durability , takes forever to break-in, and is only ok when it comes to pop & distance. I believe the gold was made in the USA and the maroon in China.

Discussion: BOOMBAH SENIOR SLOWPITCH BAT

Buddy of mine had one a couple years ago and it was horrible. It had 150+ swings when I tried it. Bat swung balanced, as I recall, and had no pop at all. We hit again on a 55 degree day to see if we could get her to open up and at 200+ swings the bat broke. Never came close to getting good IMO. I had ASA bats that would outhit the boombah, $99 wasted. Bat was black and silver if I remember correctly.

That bat is garbage. The one that I swung had no pop and broke after about 150 swings.

They do it for hockey sticks, so I see no reason why they couldn't do it with bats.

Balanced choices would be 2014 Worth BJ Fulk Mayhem(green lettering) $199 or the Miken Revex $199 comes in balanced or endload. All come with 1 year warranty, except Blackout.

Discussion: End Loaded Vs Max Loaded

End Loaded bats are usually 1/4 ounce - 1/2 ounce end load and maxloads are 1 ounce, which is the maximum endload allowed. Not sure on the Mikens which offer a Maxload and a Supermax, Alan(Tri18) could probably answer this.
