Topic: Bats
Discussion: Reebok Barrage Legend is GREAT BAT

It's very difficult to have both extreme performance and good durability. Look what Miken tried about 1 1/2 years with the red endload. Many duds redoing the hottest bat in senior softball. Most seniors say they want both, but when the rubber meets the road, performance is king. What we may spend on a couple bats( or maybe more), is a drop in the bucket compared to what we spend in and to tournaments every year.

Discussion: Looking to join 60 + AAA or Major team in Kansas, Missouri, Colorado, Oklahoma, or Nebraska

There are a couple of good teams for 60+ in KC. Renegades and KC Kids are always looking for good players. If that doesn't work for you,the Scrap Iron teams in (Denver) Colorado are a great choice. I'm sure one of those teams can find a place for you.

Discussion: SSUSA ID cards

How quickly are the new ID cards going out? I arranged payment and got a quick conformation by email, about a month ago. Still no card.

Discussion: Warning about too many pain medications

What a great post. Most all of us take something for pain while playing. However, too much is too much. I have a doctor who lives across the street from me. For relief from inflammation, he recommended 800 mg ibuprophen a day for 3 days only. What you were taking Webbie was excessive. There may be others out there that are doing the same. I have done the 800 several times a day for several days during the season. Glad to see you noticed the excess.

Discussion: Miken Senior Bat Review- shich is the best bat of the 3?

The 2piece white has taken forever to break in. About 400 swings so far. No problem with durability. Can't tell yet about the final pop at this point. A dud from the beginning, but started to open up at about 200 swings. A little behind my red at this point. Not going to be hot out of the wrapper.

JR, do you wear the mids or the lows? If both, is there much difference in weight?

Discussion: Tanel Shoes

My current pair of Tanels are 10 and a half. My toes however are right at end. Not uncomfortable, but no room at all. I'm thinking maybe 11s the next time.

Discussion: Tanel Shoes

I have the midi 360 turf shoe. Style 8317 M, if that helps. It is not the "light" version. I compared the weight to some midi 3N2 shoes I had from the prior year, and the Tanels were somewhat heavier according to the food scale I weighed them on. Love Tanels, just trying to find the lightest model. Rarely play in the outfield. 1st base mostly.

Discussion: Tanel Shoes

I have a pair of midi Tanel shoes. While I love the support and comfort, they are heavy. Has anyone had experience with the regular 360's and the light 360's? Is there much of a difference?

Discussion: Las Vegas Fields and Umpires

65 AAA at Lorenzi was very well run. Umps were knowledgeable and fields were in excellent shape. We got moved from Desert Breeze just before the tourney started. Never played at Desert Breeze, but Lorenzi was excellent.

Discussion: Bat restrictions for Seniors.

Never swung a ti, but I still have my original Ultra. Hottest bat by far I have ever swung. Hit one off the handle in a game that I thought would be a 280 ft. fly out. Ended up in a tree about 15 ft. beyond the fence.

Discussion: HAS ANYBODY TRIED THIS?

Use a rubber mallet up and down the barrel at first. I think this breaks the bat in evenly. After several sessions, then batting practice.
