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?

Thanks

Discussion: Boombah bats and Bass Bats

Yes I know. I have a red EL & the special edition Ultra IIs. This discussion is about the Boombah or Bass senior bats. I just use the Boombah for batting practice. You do not want to use the Mikens in batting practice (except the Legacy)!

Discussion: Boombah bats and Bass Bats

Soory!!! I Have a Boombah Senior Bat, it is grey with a black Boombah Logo in sweetspot. It is not a GBA!!! It is a 27 oz and is $99 right now.

Dan, I am not going to Ft Meyers. My 50 team is going to TOC in february.

I do turn 60 next year and am looking for a 60+ tournament team to play on (also a new team for Tuesday & Thursday), I am tired of always being the old guy!

Discussion: Boombah bats and Bass Bats

I just got s 27 oz Boombah veteran for $99. Thought I couldnt go wrong for a batting practice bat. I think it is weighted like the Red Ultra II. I have may be 150 swings on it. It started out a log. But seems to be opening up every time I use it. It has a smaller sweetspot then the Ultras but is holding up well. Used it in 54 degrees last week here in Michigan and no damage.I well update you after a few more swings.

Discussion: Roster & playing in TOC

Could someone from SSUSA answer this question! Do you only have to be on the roster when you qualified for the TOC or did you have to play in that or any qualifier? We qualified in the Northern Regional but went without a few players. They were on the roster but did not play. Are they eligible for TOC?

Thank You in advance
