+-Omar, the new ASA bats made for the lower compression balls are pretty close to our senior bats..FYI! I ran one down the other night that was 390 ft from home plate in a ASA league!

Armiho211 I'm sure you will get some relief after you see the Doc and find the right course of action... I took the cortisone shot and it got me going in the right direction and with the Wall stretching, orthotic, and taping I have not had any issues since.. FYI

I find running the bases on some the natural field are like running on concrete.. prefer the turf now... IMO

Lgoehrig, the difference between AAA and Major and Major plus is there are simply better teams as you climb the latter. More power as you go up and much better Defense! it's that simple..

first thing is go see a doctor.. you might get a cortisone shot to get the swelling down.. Then after you get past that you have to get on a daily regiment of wall stretches.. it stretches out your calf which means you will be stretching out the Plantar ligament... I have gone through this 3 years ago and have not had a problem since! FYI

TG69.. first of all, not every HR ever hit has to be hit on the screws! If you know me, I appreciate great D above even hitting! That being said, do I think half swings should go out of the park? NO! I believe that if I get enough of the ball it should go out and it does for me, most of the time depending on wind and softness of the balls!

Now TG69 if you were at the Calcup and western nationals.. you would find that HRs were down and runs scores were down and defence was at a premium... I didn't have a problem with that combination of bat/ball and most didn't complain! I would have an issue if it was dumb down to another level which would of been hitting pillows! FYI

Brock, I would love to play in Aurora! I have heard nothing but good things about the fields there... to Date the nicest complex I've played at is in Reno at Golden Eagle in Sparks and I've had others tell me about Aurora being right up there.. We will have to make it out there one of these years for one of our travel Tourneys!

Hey Brock, a lot of the Tourneys have fancy names, but who can actually call any of them True in the wording. There are a lot of good to great teams not making trips across country primarily because of $$$$$! I'm in CA, so why would we spend 2k to travel to Florida or Colorado when we can play in our Backyard... Look at SPA, it's not around in Northern CA this year. Not to many teams from northern CA playing that sanction.... it's all about the $$$$ for most! Closest thing we will get to an actual National championship will be SSUSA in Vegas! IMO

better explanation would be the baserunner is the one that is making the out by vacating the base... not the next batter!

I don't cry Mad Dog! Think what you want to think, I know you are a AAA player at best and you can't carry my jock strap... Keep up the attacks on me, shows everyone what a tool you are!

I will take your word for it BW... when it's that hot they should use a heat friendly ball for sure.. We could still hit homers with the stote ball but you had to get it pretty good!

BW I never hit the 44 285 so I couldn't tell you.. I can only go by what I have hit in league! I have never hit the 52/300 with a senior bat. I also can say we did hit it on a 90 degree day with an ASA bat and it was so so.. There are only a handful that want a ball change so I'm not going to talk about it anymore. waste of time.

Hey Rj, thanks! I think we still need to get that beer... I hear they base it on how many HRs you hit.. so if that's the case we don't hit that many.. mostly timely hitting and great D is how we win... so who knows.. we will cross that bridge when we get to it.. Nice almost No hitter you threw... I give Right field an E on that last one.. Good job!
