Discussion: A HONEST ANSWER CONCERNING BATS!

WHAT PERCENTAGE OF TEAMS do you think are using illegal bats like shaved or painted. give me your honest opinion please. we played this weekend in 50's and some of the hardest balls i have ever seen was hit against us. i mean everyone in the lineup was hitting shots. we cant react to those kind of hits. just wondering, thanks. and by the way , i do not agree with illegal bats. i wish we was all using single walls.

Discussion: SHAVED BATS?

we just played our first senior tournament ever this weekend. i need to ask this question. if you dont know for sure, dont answer. i thought i was getting away from shaved bats. but this weekend, the teams we played hit the hardest and some the farthest balls i have seen in a while. my infielders didnt have time to react to most grounders. homeruns were reaching 370 feet when they hit the ground. will someone please inform me on what is going on. we bought a new ultra and it wasnt producing anything like the teams we were against. we hit 1 home run in 6 games. we play 50's. i would bet a dollar to a donut they were illegal bats. i need to hear some thoughts and opinions. thanks for your reply. just a little frustrated right now.

Discussion: starting 50 team, what positions do i need to be strongest, etc.

thanks all for the great info about my question. looking forward to playing this year. thinking about taking 12 players as it gets tough to coach more than that. we will be chipping in also, everyone wants to play. how much participation fee. i heard something about a participation fee or something. i'll probably have more questions, just looking to have fun and prolong my career. just an average player but i love the game. started in 1976, thanks, ricky

Discussion: what is the annual participation fee?

this is my first year, playing 50's, heard there was a participation fee. just wondered how much and i see the entry fee must be paid in advance, what if the tournament gets rained out. thanks for all information. ricky
