Imagine that, another negative comment from Gary19 that has nothing to do with the intent of the post or the person responding! Someone really needs to get a life!

Discussion: marking batter's box

Rik56, my comment was not addressed to Norq44 at all except to ask him to continue posting in spite of the one that is always trying to stir up trouble here. I think most people know who that individual is including him, especially as he was the first to respond to my comments.

Norq44, it's the same crap here from a very, very small percentage of people who have a desperate need for attention, exhibited by their negative responses in just about EVERY post they make. Their goal certainly appears to be intentionally antagonistic and controversial to make themselves the center of attention here which is likely the only place in their life that they can achieve that. Please don't stop posting because of them, post in spite of them

Discussion: Needed hitting instructions !!!!!!

cal50, you say most people on here are helpful but was your post helpful or just like some others on here that believe name calling is the way to address people when you do not like or agree with their views?

Topic: Bats
Discussion: Bat Doctor Needed

It is a simple issue and if you don't get it, you don't get it or you just want to try and antagonize people. You use the senior bats because you want and have to use the best equipment you can to compete against the other teams that use them as it gives you the best chance of winning. I completely agree that senior bats are not necessary and should not be allowed but THEY ARE! GET OVER IT! The same hit with a USSSA bat that may be snagged by an infielder is past him for a hit quicker with a senior bat. The same single between 2 outfielders with a USSSA bat may be a double with a senior bat. It doesn't have to all be about distance, its about hits period. Even the best hitters could not argue that a hotter bat is not an advantage unless they just want to argue! In the big tournaments many here play in, you can not let the other team have the advantage of a better weapon, so you use the best weapon you can.

Discussion: COMBAT BLUE I LOVE IT

I picked up a new blue one at the TOC but haven't had the chance to swing it yet. I have the silver and the yellow and love Combats!

Discussion: Where is he now?

Omar, good point that he "appeared" to start this thread with a legitimate question. However, after looking at all his subsequent posts, I can only conclude this one was actually started knowing the controversy it would stir up. I was also going to reply that he jumped on Wagon's thread after he denied doing it to other people's threads but I said I would not reply to his posts any more, so I didn't.

Discussion: Where is he now?

I find it very interesting that someone's very first post on this board is to stir up trouble and every post since then has followed suit. It brings back some very unpleasant memories of the board filled with name calling, negativity and other personal attacks that have been absent for a while, much to the delight of many here. If you know so much about the two suspended posters, yet this was your first post under the name logan, then you obviously used to be on here another name which some have alluded to here. If you do not like the way topics are being discussed on here, why don't you quit the whining and complaining and just go away. But no, like with your supposed friend Gary C (wink, wink), that will not happen. You will continue to hijack threads, contribute nothing worthwhile and generally just be a thorn in everyone's side. That said, I will take one piece of advice from you and never respond again to any of your negativity and worthless input you post here.

Wagon487 is Pat. He thought he was putting the keys in my bag and I tore my bag apart a few times looking for them before he figured out he probably put them in a different bag.

Discussion: TOC Updates

In the 50 Major division, Metro Stars won in a very tough battle over ENR. Having to win twice, ENR won the first game in the bottom of the 7th but Metro pulled out the final game in the bottom of the seventh also. ENR put up a hell of a fight and was a very classy team!

Discussion: what does mm stand for with combat bats

MM stands for Mike Macenko and his name is on the yellow Senior combat. The new Senior Combat coming out is blue and is supposed to be very similar to the yellow one. There is also the original Senior Combat which is grey. Some people prefer the grey over the yellow but they are both great bats with a lot of pop. I have both and have found the grey a bit more durable than the yellow but they are both very durable compared to other brands.

Discussion: Has Anyone Else Had Problems With The Reebok ME'LEE Legend Senior Softball Bat Because Mine Cracked After 45 Hits Any Durability Problems?

Surf88, while I respect everyone's opinions here, this is a forum for softball players to share information and I think the fact the these bats are touted as being so durable is the reason why this is a topic that should be shared here. While it is true that maybe the company will do something for all the people that have these durability issues, it still doesn't change the fact that almost-new bats are breaking and the reason I and many others have purchased these bats is the highly touted durability. I do not like having to take my time to deal with this issue even if they do take care of it. It still takes me time and money to resolve it when the only reason I bought this bat was for the supposed durability. Coming from someone who is affiliated with the company, I do not think it appropriate to make veiled threats that if people speak about their problems with the product, that they may not get cooperation from the manufacturer.

Broke my senior 27 EL Reebok yesterday after about 50-75 swings indoors using regular balls. It still had the plastic on it. Not sure if they will do anything for me on it but if not, I will go back to my Combats which are way more durable.

Discussion: Plate & Mat as Strike

Tater, I am a pitcher and I play SPA and SSUSA. I am fine with the mat as a batter and love it as a pitcher. I think it removes a lot of often questionable umpiring and arguing from the game. As a pitcher, I sometimes don't like that what would have been a strike without the mat is not one with it. But on the other hand, I love throwing a curve ball that hits the back inside of the plate for a strike without ever crossing it.
