Discussion: Player Ratings

I can't believe this turned out to be such a big thing.

Just to correct Dukes. It wasn't my team that requested this. It was a couple of other teams. The way i run this group is anyone that has a suggestion or comment I always put it out to all the managers to comment on.
We are made up of teams from 12 different cities/towns and each team forms their own roster. The only thing I do is coordinate the schedule. It is basically and organized pick-up games with a set schedule.

Discussion: New Bats for 2005

You have to be careful when buying 2005 bats. Most companies are making 2 models one for USSSA and 1 for ASA. For example the PST120 is for USSSA and the PST Max is for ASA. I beleive it is the same for the Miken Freak - Freak + for USSSA and Freak 98 for ASA.

It is pretty straight forward you just to make sure you are getting the right model for your Assoc. you are going to use it in.

Discussion: HIT THE MIDDLE.

One solution that the younger divisions won't adopt is to use the 11th fielder over the middle. I have pitched in both and there are very few hits on purpose up the middle with the middle infielder.

Discussion: Pitchers Box

I tried replying but it kept saying SQL error.

The pitcher must take a position with both feet firmly on the ground and with the pivot foot or both feet in contact with the Pitcher's Box.

Must come to a full stop with ball in front of body

The pivot foot must remain in contact with the Pitcher's Box until the pitched ball leaves the hand.

Discussion: Playing with bats banned by ASA

That was an interesting answer. I would have thought they would have answered the other way.

Discussion: 2004 bats, wait or buy??

I would buy. The ASA has banned only 4 bats if you play ASA. SSUSA allows those 4 and USSA, NSA and others have all listed there bats for 2004. I don't see these organizations repeating the mess of the last 2 years and changing in mid-season.

Discussion: Eyeglasses and seeing the ball?

Yes I had this problem. I have blended tri-foculs and didn't have any problems with them till last July. I went into a batting slump where I was popping everything up and lazy fly balls. I finally went to the batting cages and I finally noticed that I was losing the ball about 3/4's of the way to the plate in the middle of my lens. Somewhere along the line I had started to take a step when I batted (I have never taken a step up till then) dropping my head which lowered my line of vision. It must have happened slowly because I never noticed it. What I did was have a pair of glasses made and the vision lines lowered to elimanate that problem. Being a diabetic my visions changes with by blood sugar level. I cary 3 paris of glasses with me and take fly balls to see which pair is right for that day.

Discussion: Wheeler Dealer

Just finished my first year with the Wheeler Dealer (Battery Model). It is a great machine for the serious player who wants to improve or maintain his batting skills. Had a small problem at the beginning with bad circuit board but they took care of that right away. I have used it every day since March hitting from 50 to 175 balls each BP session and outside of having to clean the cylinder and plunger every now and then machine has performed with no failures. It throws the ball about 6' high and a distance of 3 - 4'. I am able to put the machine in front of the plate in line with the pitcher's mound so the ball is coming at me about the same as in a game with live pitching. Because it is an impact machine you have to use good balls. Balls that are soft (for example used Cork Center Balls) won't throw the ball up to 6'. I find that helpful as I mix some of them with the good ones so that is like a game some high and some low pitches but you don't know when each one is coming which teaches me patience and concentration at the plate. I would highly recommend this machine and is well worth extra cost of other machines

Looking for a 70+ Tournament team to play on. Played in ISSA World Series and enjoyed it and would like to play again. I pitch, catch and play right field. I am an above average hitter with some power.
