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.

Discussion: Wondering about your team name; especially the unusual ones.

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!

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....

Discussion: Dudley Lighning 12 inch senior bat.

Swing,
Might want to add some parameters like...what kind of ball you are hitting and where? That can change ALOT. ALso, are you asking specifically about the Dudley 12" or any senior bat? Then we will hone in on some good info...

Discussion: Miken White vs. Big Cat

3,
Excellent questions on 2 great bats. The 2-Piece Max (red/white) has a 1/2 ounce end load while the Big Cat has a full 1 ounce endload. Both are fantastic performers that are top tier senior bats. The swing weight of the 2 piece max closely resembles the Lightning 13" el model as the Dudley has a similar end load. The Big Cats end load will feel slightly more pronounced. I have extensively tested and shipped out ALOT of these models so feel free to contact me at 561-718-7504 for more info.
Thanks,

Discussion: Tribute to one of the best!!!

There are tons of Cranker stories. First let me give my sympathy and condolences to Craig's family and prayers as well. Craig was one of those larger than life guys whose abilities actually exceeded his persona. Some days we wondered which would be at the forefront but when it was all over ....guys would have to sit back and respect the person and his talent. Craig was one of the fiercest competitors I ever played against and maybe that's why he typified the FAMOUS STEELES team back in the day. That bravado was shared by the entire lineup but Craig seemed to have the next level. I'll share one short story....
We were playing against him later in his career when he was playing with Datum Argus I believe in the ISA Major World Series. It was on a big field in Florida and the wing was blowing hard straight in. Runs were somewhat hard to come by and the game was a struggle back and forth. Craig was brought in to pitch against my Skyhawk/TPS team and he immediately began to jaw at EVERYONE on my team. He came up the next inning and sent a missile up the middle right by my pitchers head and ran the mouth all the way up the baseline....we came up the next inning and I was leading off. He threw two FASTBALLS by me about 2.5 feet off the ground and yelled at the ump when he didn't call the first one. Obviously the ump was intimidated and called the 2 nd one a strike. Craig laughed when I called time out and looked with exasperation at the ump. I had then had enough. The next pitch I hit off of his right thigh. He yelled at me and I yelled at him and both our teams grabbed us. I was hot and so was he. When it came time to pitch again he looked over at me briefly, smiled, winked and threw the next pitch. When the game was over he made a beeline right towards me and shook my hand and said..."way to hit it youngster" ! Fierce competitor, great man, and one of the best hitters I have ever seen. I am so glad I got to see him play and know him. RIP Craig....you are a great athlete, person, and friend.

Discussion: most durable senior bat

Jawood,
You can call Miken and get a RA number and send the bats to Miken and they will either repair or replace them . Mikens customer service is excellent. OR....A simple fix.

Go to Home Depot or Lowes and get some 3M 5200 Marine epoxy. Lightly sand the shaft of the bat and inside of knob. Wipe them clean with a dry cloth. Apply the epoxy on the shaft of the bat and inside the knob. Tap the shaft of the bat firmly into the knob and then twist the knob a half turn or so. Wipe off any excess glue that is visable and let the bat sit for 24 hours. For about $8 , that knob will stay on.

Discussion: most durable senior bat

If you haven't tried the Miken Freak Black Senior you should. I now have over 3,000 swings on mine and that's more than I have gotten over ANY senior bat that I have ever tested. Additionally, the Miken is the ONLY senior bat with a 1 year warranty so it's definitely one to consider when evaluating performance AND durability. Contact me with any questions at 561-718-7504.

JT,
I will have a camera there but filming all the different events on all the different fields plus the banquet and don't forget the after hours Sports Bar would be....something a film crew would need to do. We will have a lot going on and I'll try and capture some of it....
