Discussion: Fall Training Camp for Senior players

Happy to announce that we will be holding our fall Training camp this November 11-13th in Vero Beach, FL. We specialize and focus only on the needs of the senior athlete and provide professional instruction to help you enhance your hitting, fielding, pitching, and base running. The big advantage too is our series of mini seminars throughout the weekend including health, nutrition, strength training, and injury prevention. We have been putting on the most comprehensive program for seniors for the last several years in Vero Beach. We welcome men from the ages of 49 and up and women 35 and older. Vero Beach is a great vacation place and we picked this weekend to coincide with SSUSA's great Winter National in Ft. Meyers held the weekend before the camp. Cost is $250 which includes your ticket to an awesome banquet Saturday night. Spots are limited so sign up now, play in the tournament and then come to camp!

Discussion: Best Batting Glove for Pratice

You guys have hit on a tough subject sometimes. I hit hundreds of balls every week and was going through a pair of gloves about every 3 weeks so I looked to find something more durable. "Work" style gloves didn't feel good at all to me as they are too thick and I couldn't get used to the feel of the bat so.....I sourced my own for Team 1 Sports. My gloves fit well , are true to size, and are extremely durable. I can now get multiple thousands of swings on a great pair of gloves and can wear the same thing in games or Bp. If you guys have questions about them feel free to get in touch with me.

Discussion: SOFTBALL SHOES

STLO,
THE only real good quality wide shoe I have seen and worked with players on was New Balance. There have been a few other companies but I haven't seen long term success over the years like I have with New Balance. I agree with the above post....shoes are very personal as far as fit goes and if you don't have an " average" foot your best bet is to try on pairs before purchasing or make sure you have a good exchange policy. Find something that works well for you and get a couple of pairs...

Discussion: ASA Bats DeMarini Juggernaut Vs Miken Freak Black Balance

Dancer,
Lots of great questions, let me see if I can help as I have swung and tested both bats extensively. You are really comparing two TOTALLY different bats that felel and swing differently. Both are very good bats and among the top 3-4 ASA bats out there so it going to boil down to which one best suits and feels comfortable to you. The Juggy is a heavy end load with a shorter barrel thus it feels and swings much different than the Freak. The Freak is totally balanced PLUS it has a 14" barrel thus creating a swing weight/feel a world away from the Juggy. I would tell you this....If you have been using and are happy with 14" bats don't change unless you want to experiment for a extended period of adjustment time in Bp with theJuggy. (Or if you just like trying new stuff :) NOTHING wrong with that either) call me anytime and I can go into greater depth with you. I'll be back from being out of the country this coming Saturday. I have limited phone access here.

Mizunos new Erupt has been great this year. They redesigned them to be lighter, more cushioned, water resistant and supportive. They come in either low cut or 3/4 versions. Get with me if you have any questions.

Discussion: Dudley 2.0

ASU,
I'm going to take a stab at this but this is my GUESS based on a few things I've heard. They very well could show up before Vegas but remember their other bat is still in inventory at their warehouse and with their REAL dealers. They probably want to sell down some inventory first and there is also the planning for production time since they do not own their own production facility. The bats are made where other companies bats and hockey sticks are made so production runs must be pre planned in advance.

The changes are subtle. Mainly just some additional grip spin tacky material so that it stays on the barrel longer. The overall construction of the bat remains the same as it should....it's a good combination of durability and performance.

Discussion: HOW TO PREVENT A HEATSTROKE

Guys,
Great topic as we come in to the hottest days of the year and great information. Let me expand on it a little bit....
You can actually drink TOO much water over extended periods of exercise, dilute your blood sodium levels too much, and get hyponatremia (sp?) which is quite dangerous. Additionally, I have seen athletes whose organs begin to shut down due to dehydration and over exertion. Another very scary and potentially dangerous situation. Mix in small amounts of a sports drink, i.e. Gatorade or Powerade in order to prevent this. Let me again share a product I found when doing the Ironman Triathlons that also greatly prevents dehydration and cramping.... For around $25 a bottle Salt Stick will aid in the prevention of both scenarios while competing in the sun and humidity over long periods of time. It is actually a form of human sweat broken down molecularly and put in a capsule form. I have been using this and sharing it with athletes for over 10 years with always positive results and no cramping. If you want more information you can contact me.

Discussion: My son Tim

Dear friends,
Thank you so much for your replies here, calls, texts, and emails. I am telling you honestly that your prayers and support truly matter. I also hope that none of you as parents have to endure this. It is so very hard to trust that Gods plan is the perfect one in a time like this even though in our heart of hearts we know it is.
My son was an incredible athlete, father, friend, and a strong Christian example. As I have been in his hometown these last few days many, many people have reached out to me to express the impact he had on their lives. I am a grieving but extremely proud father today. My son did not like flowers...! We are respecting that and in lieu of that we have set up an educational trust fund for his son Bryson age 3 and daughter Kayran age 20 months. It is account number 00003286497702 at TD BANK. You can visit any TD location, use "pop" or p2p transactions or Paypal donations to:
Timtanner17@bellsouth.net. You can also use the mail at:
TD Bank

PO Box 1190

Thank you again from myself and my family. Please keep praying for us. We feel it and it is our comfort.

Discussion: My son Tim

Hello Guys,
I consider many of you family and wanted to reach out to the softball community after receiving a lot of emails, calls , and texts concerning my son Tim. On Saturday I was playing at the Senior Smokey Mountain Classic when I received a call that my son Tim had been involved in a serious motorcycle accident and airlifted to a hospital in Little Rock, AK. I got in touch with them as he was being admitted. There were no flights out of Knoxville so I left the field and immediately began driving the 7.5 hours to Little Rock. They called to update me and Tim had severe brain injuries and they asked me to get there as soon as I could. My son Tim passed away Saturday evening and went to heaven to be with my infant son Travis who preceded him. I was and am very proud of my son and his strong Christian faith and I know where he is right now. I share thiis with you my friends and ask that you pray for my family and also especially for his 2 young children. We are having a service here in Arkansas on Thursday and a memorial service down in Florida at Christ Fellowship in Palm Beach Gardens on Saturday , June 25th at 10 am. Any of you are welcome to attend. We will be arranging a memorial fund in lieu of flowers in honor of Tim for his children. Thank you for each of your prayers and support during this.

Discussion: NEW 2016 USSSA Miken Patriot

Okay so after a couple weeks of testing we have....a sure fire winner here. Mikens new USSSA Patriot uses their traditional 14" Maxload design to deliver one of the very best "kids" bats out there. The Patriot comes in a balanced version or a 1/2 ounce end load version which is very desirable for us seniors because.....the bat feels and swings just like Mikens new Senior Ultra II Black Maxloads (black and green) and their balanced (white and black) bats that many players currently swing.
Let's just say this: if you are swinging the new Miken senior and now the USSSA Patriot you are hitting the top of the line in both categories. The Patriot also now has the new S3R technology which adds microscopic spheres to the barrel of the bat which helps to increase spin and performance. You will notice very early on that this bat does not act like a USSSA bat but feels and responds quite a bit better than other bats out there. Within 100-125 swings the slightly "tingy " sound goes away and now the bat REALLY hits. Utilizing a number of different players and skill levels, we saw fantastic results during the testing and evaluation process. The caveat is that it comes with a one year warranty along with its stellar performance up and down the barrel. Mikens engineers have again created a fantastic balance of feel, performance, and durability for us to enjoy. Another big bonus is that when you purchase one, funds go directly into the Heros Fund which impacts and helps our Veterans in a big way. Enjoy a great bat and do your part to support a bat made in the USA and the veterans of our great country. Call me with any questions at 561-718-7504.

Mikens new Patriot comes in a 25 ounce version as well in both USSSA and in its senior SSUSA model. Get the one that feels the best to you and each of them delivers good results....

Bubble gum,
The two bats and weights you have listed will swing and feel TOTALLY different. If you want to call me I'll be happy to speak with you and help match you up with what will best suit you.

Discussion: New Mizuno Erupt Turf/Cleats

Fence,
They don't list that info so I grabbed a pair of 10.5 in the 3/4 model and they weighed 1 pound 8 ounces which is fairly light for such a well cushioned and supportive shoe. The low top version will be even lighter. Every player I have supplied them to has really liked them. Again, they only come in a standard D width so if you have a really wide foot I would suggest New Balance. If you need help or questions call me anytime.
