Discussion: Passing of Fred Purvis

I had the privilege of playing with Fred on the Omen team this year - I cannot believe he is no longer with us. As has been said by several posters, Fred was one of the true gentlemen of our sport. Hitting in front of Fred, I knew I was going to get my swings because no one wanted to walk me and face Fred! My last memory of the big guy was having the opportunity to participate in a team dinner with Fred and Diane after the Las Vegas tournament. Fred, you are missed. Go with God, my friend.

Discussion: 1 and 1 pitch count

Dave, you summed it up nicely! Alternatively, we could just go to "1-pitch" and that will definitely speed up the game! 45-minute game slots could become the norm!
Now, for those who do not know me, I am stating this tongue-in-cheek!

Discussion: the new bat "Nightmare"

I agree with everything The Wood says...I hit the Nightmare with Kevin and Mark "Buddah" Canegallo in Virginia before I bought the 27. I also swung the 28 oz which has a 3 oz end load but I am not a "beast" like those two! So I chumped out and got the 27 oz which has a 2 oz end load. I'm still in the process of breaking it in and, for me, it has taken me a while to get used to the stiffness of the 2-piece construction. I'm liking the bat more and more. Improbably have 350+ Swings on it now
On the Dudley Lightening, I swung a DEMO that Gary Tryhorn had in Las Vegas and liked it right away. I got the 27 oz end load with the 12 inch barrel. I liked the bat out of the wrapper and it fits my swing well. I plan on using it in the Winter Worlds in Fort Myers.
Also, the disclaimers that Bob stated apply to me as well - I am not getting paid to sell either bat although I like them both!

Tim,home runs may be a 'dime a dozen' in your age group but they are NOT in over 60s ball. Our 65 Major Plus team (Omen) played 9 games and hit maybe 15 home runs. Even the big boys on Hamels and Rose don' hit 'em at will.

Congrats to all my friends on the Rimfire and Superior teams. It's always good to see and talk to Bill Gore and Joe 'Lefty' Falcon from Rimfire. And it was a great pleasure to see and visit with my old friend and teammate of many years Tom 'T-Bone' Malvich. And, as always , all the great players on the Hamels and Rose 65 teams. Keep in good health and we will try it again next year!

Discussion: 1 and 1 pitch count

This topic has been beaten to death year after year. It seems to me the younger seniors prefer the 1-1 count while the older (65+) by-and-large prefer the traditional count. I play in a senior league here in OKC that uses the 1-1 and I am not a fan. As someone said above, one bad call or pitch on the back corner and the hitter is at a big disadvantage. I have hit many more pitchers in our league than I have in tournaments (none) due to having to protect the plate much earlier in the count. Just my personal experience.

Andy, my bad...looks like you guys are the only ones with no brackets in the 55s! Must be nice to have so many teams though.

Discussion: Defensive Philsophy @ World Masters

Also, in the older age groups you will run an outfield to death using the 5-man unless you have enough guys to rotate guys around in the outfield. In the 65s, we run the traditional 4-man OF and still rotate guys in and out to keep them fresh especially if they are leading off in our next at bat,
