Would like names of leagues and locations that:
Allow senior bats & use either the 40\375-400, 44\375-400, 52\375-? or close balls and are concerned about the senior player safety issues as well.
Also is any had issues with injuries because of their use.
If wanting not to publicly post, use:

Neck we use senior bats in Grand Rapids. As long as both teams agree-otherwise it's ASA bats.

In Indy we use 44/400 worth gold dots and all senior bats are leagal. Indiana Senior Softball org. runs the leagues. Indianapolis Sports Park provides the diamonds and NSA umpires. 6' tall 2' wide pitchers screen is mandatory. screen may be moved half the width of the 2' pitching rubber to accomodate left or right handed pitchers. Batted ball hitting screen is a dead ball strike. On third strike the batters out. No significant injuries so far.

Cherokee Senior Softball (cssasoftball.com), Woodstock, Ga. 300' fences, 65" bases(?), pitcher's screen, insurance through SSUSA, senior bats and any 44/375 ball. Only in our National League.
We have other divisions, American, Legends, Legacy and Masters. They all swing ASA bats and don't have to pay the extra insurance.

In the past 10 or 12 years I can't remember anyone being hurt as a result of the senior bats. You should contact our commissioner to be sure.

Our league in Pensacola Florida uses senior bats, Baden fire balls and the pitchers screen.

We use SPA rules and insurance.

We have had at least two pitchers injured, not seriously, by hit balls. Both instances could have been avoided if the pitcher would have stayed behind the screen.

Big Valley Seniors Lodi use 44-375 and only allow senior bats for players over 70 years of age. Our league is blended in age with 7 teams with players 50-85. All other players must use aluminum bats

I can understand the screen use in League play.
Our league is split into 50's+, 58's+, 63's _+ and now 40's+.
Use fastpitch dream seam ball that gets soft after about a dozen hits and the seams cause the balls to take some bat hops off the hard infield.
Nice to rad that most are using tournament equipment and not the other stuff.
My thoughts on the games are that if your using a screen why not the good balls and sr bats.
Many older guys play down and that's cool.

Olympia (WA) Senior Softball League uses standard Trump
44/375 senior ball from SSUSA - Anaconda. We do not
use screens, but we do use a middle rule. It's an out
if through the 2' x 6' pitcher's box. We had a broken
jaw in 2011, I believe it was a bad hop off the
pitching rubber, no other significant injuries. We play
on artificial turf infields in Lacey WA and use senior
bats. We now have pitching rubbers removed. We've had
40's included for a couple years and are phasing them
out. We have 50M to 60AA currently in summer session.
