Bob, they were hitting the ball over the 400' marker then on top of a building.

The main thing those guys did was "time their swing to the arrival of the ball".. Most of us commit our bodies before the ball gets to us, the result is you drop a lot of power resulting in weak strikes on the ball.

guys i seen the ball during the telecast(it was the dudley hy-con 52-300)also they have been using this ball for this event since it came out....the bats are the same,they have to pass the same test as what the bats have to pass that we have to use ...lefty until 2014 when it becomes ASA ball of choice,then if you play ASA it will be the 52 ball.....

yes kbl the new ASA bats are better than the usssa bats.....

Seniors in 2013 can use senior bats in ASA Senior Championship Play. This is a new ASA rule 3 section 1(exception) beginning in 2013. Local ASA tournaments may allow these bats for seniors.
