Discussion: WHO ARE CURRENTLY THE MOST POWERFUL HITTERS IN SENIOR SOFTBALL

Personally, I've seen senior players walking around at various tournaments that I would bet dollars to donuts were PED users.

Discussion: the new bat "Nightmare"

Thanks for the info guys. That is all I was looking for. I'm more of a novice player today, but I do like to read, and share some of the information for my own personal use, and to pass on to others.

Just like grayhitter59, I was given a Dudley Lightning to use. It too seems to be comparable to the Nightmare in pop, and durability.
Sounds like the bats are similar.

I know most of y'all are more up to date on the going on in senior softball. That's why I posted, and hoped to get feedback. Just puzzled why SSUSA would remove the thread.

FYI ~ I not upset with anybody on this site. It is pretty much "free flow" from everyone. I don't post a lot, but will read more. Like I said previously, I value the information on bats especially.

Hope everyone is well, and healthy after the long season.

Thanks to all,

Wayne Langley (Wayne 37)

Bruce,

I Googled it, and found AD Starr manufactures the bat. Dudley is more well known for making softballs also.

I'm sure the Nightmare will be selling like hotcakes at the Nationals, and Worlds coming up seeing how it is now approved for senior play.

Just smells [sniff, sniff] kind of fishy that the bat is being promoted by an individual, as in "advertising a commercial product".

I don't run in the clique, so I wish some could be more specific. I'm not a person who hauls several bats around with me.

Like I said earlier, I've hit with the Dudley Lightning balanced bat, and I think it performs exceptionally well. Know a person who hits with the end load, and they are outdoing past performances. I have swung the end load. However, I never swing an end load bat, so I feel that point is moot coming from me. Just passing on some information if people are void of information concerning the bat.

I started a thread earlier...and it gets taken down when I have no vested interest in said bat, nor do I aspire to. I haven't a problem with the Nightmare thread. Just the criteria why it stays up, and mine comes down seeing how Dudley has a banner thread on the site.

Discussion: the new bat "Nightmare"

I have no problem with anything........except I started a thread about the Dudley Lightning bat, a company who does advertise on this site. They sold a limited few @ Dalton, GA.

I conveyed my experience hitting with the bat, and the experiences of others who hit with the bat, and give it a high rating. SSUSA staff seems it disappropriate for reasons unknown.

As stated by HJ, I have no financial interest either. Just trying to share information, and get some feedback from others. I would like to at least have some discussion come back my way.

Why is that so hard to understand?

Thank you,

Wayne Langley

P. S. I don't even know who makes the Nightmare, or if it a new bat company. No ones' said.

Discussion: Pitcher does what?

Webbie25 ~ You don't have to move off the base.

Most F5's I know will get excited, and touch the base first. I'm standing on it. Might as well try to lead to confusion if I'm going to be toast.....LOL

Discussion: Pitcher does what?

One thing I try to do as runner on 3B with bases loaded is just step off the bag if ball is hit to F5.

They tag the base before they tag you, the force is off.

Discussion: Pitcher's Shin Guards

While on the subject of safety for pitchers, I can make a suggestion on what shin guards are excellent to wear [in my opinion]. The best thing on the market are the Gerry Davis umpire shin guards. They are light weight, very easy to move around in, and are easy on and off.

You can find them on Gerry Davis' website, as he sells umpire equipment, or find some cheaper on eBay.

Just a heads up if some of you guys are interested.

I wore them for a long time when I umpired HS baseball, and you could really feel a difference as you had to wear them under your pants.

Discussion: Pitching masks revisited

Is it just me, but aren't the bats the real problem? When I first used the Miken Ultra, I probably added a 100 ft. or more to my hits.

Discussion: Umpire Mistake

If they are using two man mechanics, the base umpire should never go out on the grass. Much inexperience when a team talks you into an out. Tell the team that appeals you only have two eyes, and if they want to get that call consistently, they can hire extra umpires.

In my opinion, any umpire that puts a runner is jeopardy should have the sense to rule on their call in such they can correct it, and make the proper amends.

Discussion: pitchers mask

I would suggest if you have a huge head, not get a helmet. Plus helmets don't have a "true" fit to the shape of one's head.

Discussion: Hitting to RF by a RH batter

Robo2,

Discussion: Hitting to RF by a RH batter

What I do.

Move back off the plate a little bit, and open your stance some. When swinging, keep your head, and front shoulder in. When you stride with your front foot, don't step back in towards the plate. During the swing, don't drop your right shoulder. That will cause you to pop up more often than not, or hit a little grounder.

You will probably want to pull your hands a little closer to your body, while keeping the bat head back as you swing through. When you make contact, explode with your wrists.

See if that works for you.

Discussion: face masks

If anybody is interested in wearing protective shin guards, I would suggest the ones from Gerry Davis' umpire equipment site. They are super lightweight, and easy to run in.

Fred S,

Do you know if you have a flat, or rounded mask? Could be the difference.

You could try smaller mask pads also.
