Discussion: RENEW ONLINE

I talked with someone from the home office last week about this topic. He said you cannot renew for 2015 until after the worlds are completed in Vegas. He said to try again around the 3rd week of October. He went on to state that if for some reason you cannot renew after that date, you would still be able to play in, let's say Phoenix, with your 2014 card and identification. Provided you are on the teams roster. Hope this helps.

Discussion: Why do you swing an End loaded bat?

All other things being equal, bat speed, etc, The end load will give you greater exit ball speed. Therefore, better speed through the infield and greater distance. Other than the physics here, it is a matter of feel and confidence in what you swing.

65 AAA plays at Shadow Rock and Hollywood. Haven't played either place. For those of you that have, how are those fields?

Discussion: shoulder injury

You probably need to get a diagnosis through an MRI or Cat scan. Unless you know exactly what you are dealing with, it's hard to treat. I separated my shoulder 3 years ago, and I haven't quite been the same since. Between a 2nd and 3rd degree separation. Could have been much worse. Running between 1st and 2nd on a double play. Ball thrown to first hit me in the neck, knocking me completely out. When I hit the ground, it separated my left shoulder. Had a Cat scan with die for the neck, regular Cat scan for the shoulder. Shoulder injuries are tricky. Best to get a very good Ortho doc to look at this.

Discussion: Help for those with Vertigo

This is great info. I have been having problems with this the past few years. My consistency at the plate has been all over the road. Perhaps this is the reason. We'll see if this helps.

Mike, purchased the Macenko signature U2 a couple of weeks ago and used it this week in KC. Very impressed with its performance. You have a winner here.

I am in Pensacola this week and plan on hitting with the guys at Exchange Park tomorrow morning. Is there a tournament this weekend? If so where and what days. I might like to watch a couple of games.

Thanks for the replies gentlemen. I will be there next Tuesday at around 8AM. I don't know about other times, since I am there with my wife and visiting my daughter and son in law, with my son flying in from Alaska. Looking forward to meeting as many of you as possible. Ron

Thanks guys. Joe looking forward to several of these pickup games. I'll put this on my schedule. Looking at relocating to the Pensacola area next year, so I'd like to meet some of the guys and play a little this year. Also, great tune up for Reno.

Gentlemen, I will be visiting the Pensacola area from the 10th of May for about 10 days. Looking to hit and workout during that time. It looks like Exchange park is the place for senior softball. Any suggestions or invitations? Thanks in advance.

Discussion: Sofball Pants

I have found that Boombah's are by far the best fitting pant available. They have many styles and color combos. As stated above, the clearance section should have a black pant with a stripe of various colors available.

Discussion: How do you get fit?

HJ, Didn't check the heart rate, but it has got to be up there after the last 2 all out sprints. The thing you have to be careful of is pulling something, especially during the last 2 sprints. I wouldn't do all out effort until you have built up some time at 70-80 percent.I have trouble with quads and now calves. At 69, this gets a little tougher every year.

Discussion: How do you get fit?

I agree, softball is basically sprinting in short bursts. I warm up, then sprint 50 yd. dashes, with a walk of about 50 yds in between, for 6 sets early in the season. Start at 50% the first 2 sets, 80% the next 2 sets, then all out the last 2. I walk and jog for about 2 weeks before this.

Discussion: Reebok Barrage update

This is what concerns me about a 2nd batch fix. The original Barrage, by many accounts was pretty hot out of the wrapper. It looks to me as if the 2nd batch is not as hot. Sometimes they stay that way. Only time will tell. When Miken tried to improve the durability of the red end load, it was a disaster. No amount of batting practice could fix it. I'll take performance everytime.

Discussion: Reebok Barrage update

Gary, The only way I would guess to know the difference would be in the time frame of purchase. I purchased mine in June of last summer. I would guess that anything purchased later in the year, December or so, would be the new formula, according to posts on this board. If you noticed a difference between your first purchase and the second, then you probably have the new and improved batch. Once Miken gets the process down, they will probably stick with it.
