Complaining? I'm not complaining one little bit. As I told our original group this year I am THRILLED to be around guys who have the passion and dedication to come to a camp that improves their game. I got as much out of it as they did and that's just another blessing of senior softball. I am happy to have multiple people from around the country asking to come to another camp.

I am complaining a list now of dates to avoid to try and hone in on the best dates possible. Then I will go about procuring facilities so we can put on another great camp. I'll update you guys as soon as I sort through it all.

Thanks,

Bruce and others...
Tangelos Rage bag WAS a good choice but as of now Tanel is not producing anymore bags or shoes and is basically...out of the softball business for now. That is why I did not suggest them.

Discussion: New bats for 2015

Perl,
I have a few out there on you tube. I even bought a new video camera and radar gun this year for that. I'm a little tech and time challenged sometimes and my goal this year is to do more of that. I need to train myself a little better and set aside time for that. Appreciate the thought...I'll see what I can do.

Chip,
Look at the new Miken line up. They have the Freak tournament which my team used last year and the Freak Championship which we are using this year. Both are excellent quality wheeled bags and the tournament is a larger model with telescoping handle that easily holds 6 bats or more. My bag last year is still usable after 8 flights around the country, numerous drive to tournaments, and.....a BAZILLION trips to the ballpark for bp and testing equipment. I can't say anymore than that. If you need help call me anytime.

Discussion: Dudley Lightning.....

If the association allows senior bats...spa,issa, isa, ssusa, the Dudley can be used. Not all associations require their logo on the bat itself.

Guys and girls,
After many calls, texts, and emails it seems like a lot of you are requesting a repeat of our Spring Training program in the fall so.....looks like we will do the Team 1 Sports Fall Smash after all. I am working on dates and arrangements now so stand by and I'll put it out there as soon as I can. We already have some players making reservations for the camp now.

I just did a custom set of uniforms for the Tulsa Hawaiins? I guess I better call the manager to figure that one out...

Discussion: New bats for 2015

Hey guys,
I've been working with and testing a couple of new bats for this season. Worths new Jeff Hall and Combats new 2 PC Wanted. I should finish up late next week as I have to leave today for the Spring Nationals. Preliminary swing weights and feel of both of these are good but I only have a limited number of hits on them so far. Exciting time of the year for everyone! Softball season is here!
If you have questions about a senior or ASA/USSSA bats, get with me and I'll be glad to help you out.

Nick,
It was great to meet you and I am glad you got to make it down here. We had a blast working with everyone and the banquet turned out quite nice as well. Good food and great company! I've had a lot of interest in a fall/winter camp so let me know if you are interested and we will put the band back together....

Johnny,
You bring up a very good idea that I have been thinking about for awhile. I think we can put together a lot of useful information for the senior athlete. My lack of technical computing skills sometimes keeps me from doing certain things as it takes me awhile to incorporate things into my website. I have tried to work with a couple web design people and truthfully, they have been awful. One of these days I need to find someone reasonable and good that can help me with this and a few other things. In the meanwhile I'll send out my little snippets of info to my email list and post a few things here and there. If anyone is interested in getting on my email list just send me an email requesting that. I have had ALOT of of interest in a fall/winter camp so I will begin to check into preliminary planning after we play in the spring nationals this week. Looking forward to playing a lot of my buddies in the 40 division!

Thanks for the kind words guys. My goal when I started planning was to have the most informative and interactive Spring training ever put together. I think we may have been able to do that this year. In answer to the other comments...we are already planning and evaluating our next event. I am hoping to add a official photographer and videographer on site as that can be fun and helpful. My phone and email has been busy with players across the country wanting to sign up for the next event. I will consider a fall camp if there is enough demand at that time of the year. Stay tuned....

Brian,
I have to tell you that I may have received more than you guys did. First it was an absolute pleasure to meet you after emails and phone calls from the last year or two. You are an incredible athlete and player. I'm sure you will agree with me that we had a fantastic mix of guys and also.....our girl camper Lynelle.....Lynelle you rock! Sharing experience and knowledge with people who are intent on absorbing it and working on their games is a blessing for me. We are already talking and planning for next year at today's staff meeting. I promise you it will be even better.

Ok so the first day of Senior Softball Spring Training is in the books! We had a crazy weather cell push through with a lot for that for the most part missed us until later in the afternoon. We were in the 6 th inning of a close lay matched inter camper game that I believe is at 16-13... The weather the rest of the weekend looks stellar so we will be back at it in the morning. Some great times already with some great guys and Lynelle our lady in the group....you ROCK, ! My staff is enjoying getting to know and work with a bunch of great and talented guys and we look forward to the highly anticipated skills test and home run derby tomorrow. Hope to see all of you next year when we do it again. You won't want to miss working with our staff!

Topic: Bats
Discussion: Dudley lightning question

Bob,
What Mr. Hemi is saying is that the Dudley line of bats really don't match up exactly in swing weight and feel because of the difference in end load weighting. Miken uses a full one ounce end load in the Big Cat while Dudley uses a half ounce end load in both the 12" and 13" EL Lightnings. The 12" barrel will feel a bit more like it since it's shorter barrel and it feels a bit more end weighted as a result. If you need more info feel free to contact me.

Discussion: Not HAPPY with Bats Unlimited!

Mike,
Consider buying insurance for every bat you order if you don't know who you are dealing with....not everyone treats customers the same way in this business unfortunately.

Discussion: Dudley Lighning 12 inch senior bat.

Swing.
The Dudley bat is without a doubt one of the more durable high performance senior bats out there. I have tested and broke in many for my own knowledge and for clients and if you are a bat breaker the Dudley will most likely get you more swings than most other senior bats except for Mikens new Freak Black Senior....
