A shaved and rolled bat will add good velocity and distance to the ball. Shaving and rolling a bat is like steroids...it works! If you save it for the special moment and make good contact your team will go home a winner. Unfortunately this is the world we live in.

As a member of the Jersey Masters we were proud to meet the Ga/Ala team in the championship of the 60's AAA. Ga/Ala is a terrific team, and more importantly represents everything that is good about senior softball. Congratulations.

Discussion: altered bats

#6 the reason a team would pull out a rolled, and shaved bat is the same reason someone would use steriods. It unfortunately works. I had batting practice with an illegal ultra 2 and it is amazing. As promised the ball went 50 feet further. I would be afraid to use it in a game. I don't think there are a lot of pitchers, or third basemen in the 60's who are going to be able to get their glove up to stop a hard line drive off an illegal ultra 2. We are probably lucky no ones been killed.

Discussion: altered bats

It costs approximately $165 plus shipping to have a bat shaved and rolled. Google shave, and rolled softball bat. If a batter then uses this bat in a game and drives a line drive into the pitcher or an infielder resulting in them being badly injured, and hospitalized. What is the fair response to take to the batter?

Einstein, I totally agree. A serious injury to a pitcher, or infielder by a bat which has proven to be altered will result in the appearance of A) a lawyer B)car load of lawyers C) bus load of lawyers. Correct answer B.

Discussion: altered bats

I think it should be posted that in the case of an injury due to a hard batted ball the bat will be impounded. The owners name and address be taken by the tournament. If the team won't provide ownership they would be subject to sanctions. If the bat is found to be substanially altered the owner of the bat may then be subject to civil and criminal prosecution depending on the severity of the injury. I would hope people would then think twice. There is no question altered bats are being used especially in critical moments of some games.

Discussion: Cut-off

While it is good to hit the cut off I've seen teams beat by a good throw from the outfield. Teams sometimes then just pack it in. There are times when an out has a big affect especially when a runner is out at home. I know when I am running I hate to be thrown out at home.

Discussion: Cut-off

Most of the better teams in the 60's want to play first to third when they are hitting. And usually the infield is susceptible to this. So unless you are planning on scoring 30 runs you have to somehow challenge first to third scheme. Everything is of course different if you have serious middle infielders. The ball is coming three miles an hour, and good hitters on good teams usually aren't going to hit nice double play balls.

Discussion: Cut-off

THis is a great question. Here is the problem, I think. If you are playing a good hitting team, and do nothing but throw it into the cutoff from the outfield, and the cutoff simply holds it and throws it into the pitcher(which often happens) the good hitting team will score at will. Against a lesser team the defense can play conservative, and win. I think against a good hitting team if an outfielder can throw they should try to get an out. Also from experience if you throw it hard early from the outfield the other team things twice about running.
