Discussion: Kensington Valley Senior Softball League (Michigan)

What bats are you allowing in the League? Are you allowing Senior bats? This will make a big difference in getting people to play. I play in Can-Am 55+ League on Tues & Thurs morning. This is a real good league with 10 teams, 7 can beat any team on any day.
(Windsor Chiefs, Bench Pub/Livonia, Oak Park, Line Drive/Detroit, Pet Supply/Warren, Canerbury/Livonia and BK Realty/Taylor are the good teams). Qe use Senior bats.

Discussion: Who is the best 50 AAA right now in SSUSA?

K Sheeran/Polyviou Dental out of Detroit area is avery good 50 AAA team. They won the Northern Regionals pretty handly. They have a very fast outfield and a good infield. Dont hit alot of HR's but will easily score 20 runs a game. Would give anyone in the country a run for their money!

Discussion: Poll

I do not think you would get a very good turnout using alumilum bats. The majority of Seniors have composite senior bats and like them alot. If they are like me, I dont even own an aluminum bat! I live in Michigan and I wouldnt go.

Our Manager caleed the tournament Director and explained the situation. His comment was "We are not SSUSA, your check will be in the mail tomorrow". Manager got his refund back whithin 4 days! That isx how things should be run!!!!

Discussion: Reebock Legend and GBA Review

Well it finally got warm in Michigan, 70 degrees but windy. Went down to the local school and set up my just bought batting tee. Hit my 28 oz balanced reebock Legend and my 28 oz balanced GBA (2 piece). The GBA seems a little heavier but its balance point is 13.75 inches from endcap. The Reebocks balance point is 14.5 inches fron endcap. This might be the reason it feels heavier. Used Worth Gold Dot balls (I think they are 375/40 but not sure). This is the ball USSSA used last year in tournaments.

Well let me say it took awile to get used to hitting off a tee, I finally found the right height for me. Winds were high going from right to left. I am 60 year old
6 ft 235 lb lefty.

GBA (balanced)

This bat has maybe 150 swings on it (used in Florida). Bat seems very solid but not alot of flex. Hit many good line drives but could not get up in air. Line drives were lazers. Th farthest I hit a ball was 290. Bat needs more breakin time I think to get to its full potential.

Bat looks good, no cracks, no paint chipping just looks like its brand new.

Reebock Legend (balanced)

This bat has maybe 120 swings on it (again used in Florida). What a difference!! Bat hits LAZERS and Great distance, hit a couple 340 and 330.
Also hit 4 about 300 - 310. Bat has a great feel with great POP.

Bat looks great just dirt on barrel. No stress cracks or paint chips. I think this bat is my new gamer.

In conclusion the Reebock is good to go after about 150 swins, The GBA needs much more break in time but is a good solid bat

Discussion: Playing on 2 teams same age group

Can you play on 2 teams in the same age group but different divisions? For example can you play for a 50+ major team and a 50+ major + team at the same time? A vfriend of mine is curious!

Hey Neck

Yes, Eddie Karras plays on our team. He is just turning 55 this year. Still hits it a long way. Bobby Stew does not play anymore, he does alot of umping. I dont think Eddie Collins plays anymore either. I have played against Bruce Gomez (he goes about 3 bills now) in a Ford League.
The name of our team (for now, it is going to change) is Mike Valerio or Pinnacle.
We will be having a team meeting real soon!

Where do live, what position do you play and what experience do you have?
We have been playing 50 but want to move up to 55+. We are based on west side but have 4 players from the east side of Detroit.

Discussion: TOC - Loyce Harpe Park - Lakeland

Anyone played at Loyce Harpe Park in Lakeland. I think it is the old Carter Road Park. This is where 50 AAA is playing. Just wonder how good they are?
