Discussion: Reebok Barrage and Senior bats in general...

Hello Alan.I bought a Barrage from you guys in Tampa after my Miken broke.Spoke to a few guys at your tables and they spoke highly of the Barrage so I wanted to go with more a more durable bat.First swing out of rapper was home run and I was very impressed.Heres the problem only swung it 7 more times that Tourn,so here I am in Myrtle Beach this weekend and my 5th AB the bat breaks.Now I've been threw enough senior bats to know most come with no warranty but less then 15 swings.I understand you only sell the product but have you heard the phrase quilty by association?I have sent Reebok two emails to no evail.They need to make this right.Ok I just vented hope to here from Reebok soon.Good luck to you and Team 1 Sports this year I'm sure we will see you soon.Dan Barnes High St Bucs.

Discussion: Time to eliminate senior bats

Ok make the change to ASA or USSSA bats and see the outcome after one year.Sure home runs will still be hit but you will have so much bitching about certain teams-guys swinging hot bats it will make your head spin.Using the senior bats keeps us all equal and thought it is more of a offensive game due to power and speed of ball good defenses will still prevail,Good or excellant defenses make the routine play and occasional great play were as average teams makes to many errors to be a consistant winner.Sad but there are more then you think who would shave any bat to hit a bomb.I'll never understand how someones ego can justify cheating.Remember fellow ballers at the end of the day it's a game!Oh by the way bat testing is a joke ask any upper level player.

I think the idea of going to 1.20 or lower bats only create a huge headache.How soon we forget the problems that effect the young guys and the fact that they are rolling and shaving bats.Same thing will happen in senior ball,there are just certain guys that will cheat no matter what age they are.At least with senior bats we are all playing on a even keel.Our team has played multible senior ASA tours and can't compete against the teams swinging illegal sticks yet those same teams never win anything but ASA tours.JMO.Happy Holidays.

Discussion: ISSA OR SSUSA TOC

Paco13 you need to join one team and stay with them instead of freelancing every tournament.I have played against you numerous times and you are a excellent ball player in either 50 or 55.IMO you do not belong playing AAA at all.Maybe I'm wrong but we have been told you can only play these tours with the roster that got you there.Maybe rep from issa or ssusa could verify.Anyway good luck this year and I'm sure I'll play against you somewhere.Dan (Who's on First)

Discussion: Rotator Cuff Advice

I fell off a roof 6/27/11 and crushed my right shoulder among other injuries.Throwing shoulder was so bad bone needed to be removed as well as some muscle,all ligaments and tendons were so severely tore-mashed surgeon did the best they could to fix.I was told I would never raise my arm above my head let alone throw a ball.Well worst thing to tell a diehard baller is he can't.Went to Winter Worlds with new team(Metro All Stars)in November and managed to get in 5 ABS.I started throwing last month and feel I'll be playing the field come WTOC in Tampa.Just remember work hard and pain don't hurt!

Discussion: Is it fair............

#6 I say be honest let the coach know.Here is another thought.We travel to 6-10 Tournaments a year that start on Fridays some as early as Thursdays,WHY? With the economy people can't afford to miss this many days from work for basically bracket ball-seeding.Most of these Tournaments only have 6-25 teams at best and your telling me you can't get these games in 2 days.Remember back in the days when there were 40-80 teams in every Tournament and they found ways to get them in.Hell I never in 35 years remember playing Thur only Fridays and these were Nationals.

Discussion: Bat Doctor Needed

I have posted a couple times on the durability of the Miken11.This is my 3rd season in senior ball and to date have broken 5 ultras, one on the very first swing of the tour.I always use my yellow MM for batting practice and it is breaking in great.As soon as my last Miken breaks I'm switching to the yellow MM combat.Scrappy is correct if you want durability and return policy plan on spending 300$.

Discussion: Are some Positions more important than others?

Ditto southpaw I don't believe in individual awards my opinion is it takes the whole team even the coaches to win or even compete.Say your Strong up the middle and weak on the corners well good hitters will find the weakness's and stay away from the strengths.As for 3 outfielders we play this occasionally when teams continue to hit middle,we try to mix things up and change there swings,sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't.Anyway just my opinion,See you all @ the TOC and good luck to all.

Discussion: softball player or not

I to would play no matter what bats or balls the sanction dictates.Here is the problem I Have been playing slow pitch for 35 years mainly c-d some b and in the last 5-8 years no matter how they try to solve the bat issues some AHOLE finds ways to cheat and alter bats regardless of composite or aluminum.That is why I say use any bat on the market or let Tour Director supply the bats, This way we will all be equeal with the same sticks.I was once told a couple years ago from a major player that if you ain't cheat-in you ain't winning,well I'd rather be considered a loser then a cheater,I love this game and will do anything to uphold the integrity of the sport.

Discussion: ASA WORLD IN BURLINGTON

Paco13 right on,played in 6 games over that weekend saw 2 home runs hit against us both with the voltage and yes entire team swung that bat.Shaved or just hot we as a team can't compete using the standard ASA bats we were swinging.I believe Dus-Tex won they also were the only other team I saw hitting bombs.We as a team made the decision not to play anymore ASA.Been playing this sport 33 years and in the last 5 years can't believe the amount of guys at all levels that will alter their bats just to win a Plaque.Good luck to all teams the rest of the year, now we get back to bats were we are all equel

Discussion: Miken Durability

3 ultra 11 red max end load 27 oz all broke with less then 50 swings.The last broke in Salem right out of wrapper on first swing.I called Miken and spoke to Lisa who claims you have to swing easy for the first 50 or so Ab's.Been playing competitive softball for 30+ years and never heard that you need to swing easy.Lisa you are clueless if that is your best advice,just come out and say they are garbage.Switched to yellow combat no problems after 200+ Ab's
