Discussion: Fall Training Camp for Senior players

Today we closed out our fall training camp. We had awesome weather and a FANTASTIC group of dedicated guys and a lady who put in a great effort and who our staff saw improve dramatically. As a coach, it makes me feel really good to see the successes of each attendee out on the ball field. Our staff received a couple requests to bring out program on the road in the spring of 2017 to senior leagues across the country. If your senior league is interested in us coming to your area in 2017 to put on a training camp for your players feel free to contact me. After meeting with my coaching staff today we have decided to accept the invitation and travel to various locations in the coming year.

Discussion: Senior Softballs-44/375

Captain,
I worked with Trump and have a fantastic 44/375 ball that actually DOES perform well even in extreme heat situations. We have similar weather here in South Florida and the ball not only performs well but keeps that performance for hundreds of hits. If you would like information on it give me a call.

Discussion: Fall Training Camp for Senior players

I have received a few calls and just wanted to let you guys know the camp is on and we have spots available. We did have several guys that had to cancel due to hurricane damages at their homes but the camp is on at this point. If you want to get a lot of individual instruction in a small group setting, this camp is just for you. Call me at 561-718-7504 to register.

Discussion: Pitching screen

Shoot me an email or call me and I can send you pictures of it. It's easy to put up and take down. I just rest my BP ball bag on top of one of the legs and against the net and it works just fine.

Discussion: Pitching screen

The Powernet I Protection screen is the one I have been testing. It is slightly narrower and slightly higher than the Pitch Safe model that is widely used. The Pitch Safe is definitely more heavy duty but after hundreds and hundreds of swings this Powernet seems to be holding its own. If it last HALF the life of a Pitch Safe and its a QUARTER or less of the price (80.00) it appears to me that it's worth considering for a player wanting a lightweight ez to use BP screen. Now safety is affordable which to me is a win- win for us players.

Discussion: Pitching screen

I haven't posted a lot about the topic until I finished trying this out but I have to say for around $80, these Powernet screens are hard to beat. They are lighter weight than the Pitch safe and some other brands but they cost 1/4th. I have found it to be durable enough to withstand round after round of Bp so I brought them in to my repertoire. They come with pins to secure them not the ground so they aren't knocked or blown over but I have found it just as easy to prop the Bp ball bag against the net and it works just fine. The set up is simple and quick and it takes down easily and is stored in a carry bag that comes with it. The entire screen and frame weighs just under 10 pounds so it stores simply in your trunk and is taken out and onto the field easily. If you have questions , want to see pictures, or need more information feel free to call me.

Hail,
Call me because it sounds like you need a bat with a different balance point than what you are swinging.

Discussion: Fall Training Camp for Senior players

We made out pretty good. Luckily, the storm slightly veered off the coast and the stronger winds didn't come onshore here . I had a lot of debris and one tree blown down that missed my house by 18 inches. Looking forward to the camp which is only a month away. Registration is open so get with me and come on down for a few days of fun and sun in Vero Beach!

Discussion: Dudley 2.0

FOFO,
This isn't uncommon in composite bats although a vast majority of the new 2.0 Dudley are breaking in quickly. There are always a few stubborn ones in the bunch as I found yesterday with another manufacturers bat. I have broken in over 150 of these and this one....made my back hurt! But....about an extra 115 swings got me to what we are all looking for, a very high performing senior bat. So.... Squeeze that lemon of yours a bit harder and longer and I'm sure you will get...lemonade. Good luck!

Discussion: Dudley Lightning 2

Lefty,
You are very welcome. The new 2.0 bats all seem to be opening up a bit quicker than last years models. I have really noticed it in the 13" end loads. Last year there was a lot of those that were stubborn and you really had to work them over to get them on point. These new ones react in similar fashion to the balanced and 12" end loads.

Ed,
Give me a call and I'll go over everything with you. I've had dozens of athletes I coach and myself use prednisone. Perhaps I can give you some insight.

Discussion: A Question For You BAT GEEKS?

Bubble Gum,
You are correct to a point but depending on the engineering of the bat and the company producing it there are differences in how weight distribution is created in the bat. Putting too much weight in the handle can negatively affect what the bats potential is. There are also different flex points from bat to bat depending on layup and thickness in those regions. Engineers these days have to really fine tune ALOT of variables to get a bat that feels good, swings good, and performs well. Obviously we have some talented people in that area with the premium selection of bats we seniors have to pick from these days.

Ghost,
I will be swinging the Ultra 2 Black Maxload which is the black/green model with the 1/2 ounce end load. I have been swinging that bat ever since I hit the first proto types of it last year when we were developing it. We are working on a few new things/technology now but it won't be available until after the first of the year as its development is in the infant stages now.

DB,
I would recommend you to call the office as suggested, pay the sponsorship fees, and become a sponsor of SSUSA and then follow the guidelines they give you. Best of luck to you and your business.
