Discussion: Old stories of bat doctoring

The early aluminum bats were spot welded down at the handle. They would come off, and some used to put super balls in that end. There were no end caps then. Simply get a little weld job to put the handle back on.

Discussion: Heart of Texas Qualifier

Looking at the weather forecast for that weekend, Georgetown should have been called off earlier than what it was. I was lucky to only get charged $25.00 for my hotel cancellations.

Discussion: Sore Toes

Dear Shut Up & Pitch,

Not all shoes have the "extra" hole. You can loop them without it.

Everybody's foot is most likely different, as are shoes. I've never looped with the "extra" hole. I've done things different depending on shoe lace length, and the shoes I was wearing at the time.

If lacing the shoes that way stops the toes from hurting, go for it. If it doesn't, see a doctor if pain is persistent.

Your mileage may vary,

I've laced my shoes in that manner on occasions for years. It's not really anything new.

Discussion: Sore Toes

It's not your socks, nor more than likely your shoes. It's wear and tear from all the years.

I don't wear the white cotton socks, but I buy the black athletic socks (adidas) as they are more comfortable over the long day. If you want a good pair of athletic socks, buy the Under Armour baseball socks. Push 'em down, or wear 'em up.

New Balance now has a turf shoe which runs about $90.00 a pair, but they are easy on the feet.

Best to consult a podiatrist if you're having constant trouble.

Discussion: Not HAPPY with Bats Unlimited!

I got to go with BATCAVE on this one. They upheld their end of the contract so to speak. I carried mail for 25 years, and there isn't anything a shipper can do once the item leaves their hands. I've seen it all out there.

The simplest thing to do is have your item held at the station the driver/carrier works out of. Doesn't hurt to have insurance either.

Personally, I think this is kind of childish to call someone out on a forum for doing their job when you know of the consequences involved to try, and undercut their livelihood.

If you can't post anything advertising for commercial product, services or websites, you don't get to bash one for doing their job on a this forum either.

Locks only keep honest people out. My 0.02 cents, and keep the change.

Discussion: Knee Replacement

Webbie,

I understand what you are saying. Been there done that for the most part. My knees went south very quick for some reason. I have some arthritis with bone on bone, but it sure does eliminate the popping and grinding I was having.

I may have to have a knee replacement some time in my life, but the doctor hasn't said anything about that yet.

I tore my meniscus four years ago, and that set off a myriad of problems with other parts of my body. Being immobile for a long period caused me to gain weight, probably attributed to my plantar faciitis, and led to more persistent back pain.

All my problems were on the left side of my body. It does't help that my left leg is shorter than the right, and it will hold the most weight on it.

White Settlement is on the west side of Ft. Worth, TX. Arguments all the time especially when playing the Arlington Bears as the Bears coaches are lunatics.

Discussion: Knee Replacement

I know this is an old thread that got reopened, but I had the gel injections in both knees, and they have worked wonders for me.

It is a weekly series of four shots in each knee. You can get them every six months if needed.

Just food for thought.

Unless the bat is destroyed, I will hit with a cracked bat until I can't hit with it anymore in BP.

Discussion: Shoulder Pain

Tendonitis, arthritis, bursitis. Take your pick.

Could be scar tissue.

Stretching exercises will help. Some light therapy.

My shoulder hurts now from pushing the mouse around for a little while.

I ruined mine working at the post office over 25 years.

Fred S ~ a small dab of Capsisain (sp.?). That will keep you heated up for all day. Just be careful not to touch anything anywhere. Use rubber gloves to apply it.

Discussion: Balls 52/300

What day league do you play in. I have a Miken Ultra ASA bat I will sell. It is a 2013. This bat is hotter than the old ASA bats, so instead of sending the balls back, they wouldn't let people use them.

The old men are so scared of this bat, they want you to put a piece of red tape around it to let the infielders know you're using one. The Mid-Cities day league is anal as they come in the B & C Divisions.

Discussion: Plantar Fasciitis

@Ceres

Take two short pieces of tape, and put vertical down the back of your heel.

Take a long piece of tape, and start at the back of your heel, around over the top of foot, go under the bottom of the foot (just before you get to the ball of your foot), and back over the top of your foot, and connect it to the place you started from. Might offer some temporary relief depending how bad your plantar fasciitis may be.

Place one big piece of tape over your mouth so we can't hear you screaming in pain when you run.

My doctor did try a cortisone shot in my heel, but only one. Said something about the nerves in the foot.

Anyway, I did the therapy at the rehab place, and at home.

Another exercise is to take a small towel, and put it on the floor. Put some small objects on it, and try to pick them up with your toes.

When sitting around do stretching exercises with your foot. Time, and patience are your friends.

Yes there is a way you can tape your foot to help relieve some pain, but doctors don't like to put cortisone shots in the heel...........just saying.

Discussion: Plantar Fasciitis

Therapy is your best option. Don't know your specific case, but there are several little exercises you can do sitting at home. One of the best is just get a tennis ball, or softball to roll around with the bottom of your foot. It helps if you mash some to help loosen the calcium deposits.

It can be a long painful process. Good luck.

Discussion: Dudley Lightning 12" barrel

I do know for a fact Dudley was having trouble with the end caps coming off in the second batch of bats they have made. I think it is just the balanced bat. Not sure. I have the 1/2 ounce end load. Looks the same as the 3 ounce end load.

Still waiting to swing it.

Got my info from the rep for a sporting goods store.
