NIW Triad Blackout from Team1 Sports and Alan Tanner

Alan all I can say thanks for the advice and pointing out such a GREAT bat. I hit it this morning, about 50 balls. Farthest was 350 or so. SMOKING hot from the start. In the afternoon I took it to my Wounded Warriors PNW players and holy moly they knocked the heck out of it. One of our young soldiers sat in his wheelchair and hit the dang ball at least 200 ft. It was IMPRESSIVE! You're right. It does sound different to start but it kind of gets in the groove after awhile, and then it's lights out.
Also, thanks for the batting gloves. These guys can't afford this high class stuff...:)... so I usually buy them out of my own pocket. VA Hosp. doesn't spend money on REC stuff, so Me and my Wife kind of foot the bill. Don't get me wrong, we don't mind, just gets kind of expensive when gearing up for the upcoming season.
You should see the smile on their faces when we are able to get good stuff. It's nice to see them when it gets in to their brain that they can still play a game they loved as a kid. They absolutely come out of their shell and they become more of their old self again. Not a lot of whining or complaining from these guys. Love just hanging out with them. They have physical and sometimes mental impairments and I'm old and have both so we get along great..:)
Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart. You make this old war horse proud.
