Bob O'Brien : pretty much the same as me. Works full time coaching baseball and softball. Current dominate Major Plus player

We now have players coming form as far away as Canada. If you want more individual attention and not feeling like you are herded at home plate like cattle, my camp might be the best place for you... 😏

Raider,
We limit the amount of players we take so we can spend some one on one time with each attendee. Generally we only have 4/5 players per instructor. Maybe some past attendees who see this can post of their experience. You won't get this kind of attention anywhere else from qualified professional instructors.

Try Shergill Grand hotel in front of Legoland. They are the most reasonable in the area that I have found. A lot of the other hotels are charging $175-$230.

Looking forward to the Training camp. Here are the 3 hotels located close by and right next to the Vero Beach Outlet Mall a famous destination and quite possibly your ticket to get down here !
Hampton Inn 772-774-4010
Country Inn and Suites 772-257-0252
Holiday Inn Express 772-567-2500

Tell them you are coming for the camp and also AARP which usually nets you a good discount. Priceline also works. Don't miss out on a great camp!

Discussion: Cleats

I have had very good luck in the pat year with Mizuno new Erupt turfs. They come in low and 3/4 versions and are so supportive and comfortable that they feel like a high quality pair of running shoes. Additionally, they are water resistant which helps us ballplayers a lot in those situations where we play on wet fields. The other thing I like is the tire cleats themselves are slightly longer than most and the include 9 cleats hidden amongst them. This allows this shoe to be worn in the infield or the outfield and they perform well in both situations. If you need more info get with me.

I will be at the TOC starting Wednesday morning to help out with the MIKEN hitting clinic. I should have on hand demo bats of all the new Freak Platinum series for you to try and will have a booth set up after the hitting clinic. I will also be at the Auburndale fields on Thursday with the latest and greatest in MIKEN equipment. If you want something set aside feel free to contact me ahead of time as a majority of the first run of bats are sold out already. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive on the new lineup as they have only been out a few days. Thanks to the SSUSA for all the extra events at the tournament and another first class event!

Blue42 is the new Sports bar in town and it's right down the street from the fields. They have signed on as our official watering hole for the weekend. There are 3 hotels right next to the Vero Beach Outlet Mall that are convenient to everything. Holiday inn express, Country Inn &Suites, and Hampton Inn. Ask for the AARP rate and you generally get better discounts. You can also try on Priceline.

Discussion: Miken softball gloves

Loop,
Up until now you are correct: Miken is much more famous for their bats instead of their gloves. But, the glove line is catching up considerablly. Mikens new KOA gloves are slightly softer feeling than most gloves but the pattern and fit are fantastic. My personal glove of choice is their 14" h back since I primarily play the outfield. They come in various colors, sizes, and web patterns now and the pricing is very reasonable. I think they are the best value for dollar out there. The overall quality of Mikens gloves has improved dramatically since this line was introduced. If you need any more information on them feel free to contact me. Also keep in mind that Worth, Miken, and RAWLINGS are owned by the same parent company so quality is all on the upswing with each brand now.

Discussion: Mikens 2017 USSSA bat lineup

Hi guys,
I have been busy hitting and testing Mikens new USSSA bats for 2017 recently. They are lights out good, literally! Many balls into the lights and over the lights later means Mikens engineers have perfected and tuned these bats to become the best 3 USSSA bats I have ever swung. They come in 3 different configurations so pick the model that suits you best and you will be thrilled. As always, if you need help selecting the one that fits you best just give me a call and I'll help you out. I do have videos on Facebook and on YouTube on all 3 of these and I just released one of me hitting the Psycho. Look them up or just email me and I'll send them to you.
1. Miken Psycho: 14" barrel with 1/2 ounce endload makes this bat swing exactly the same as Mikens Ultra 2 Black Maxload. (Black/green model) Love, love it!
2. Miken DC41: 14" barrel with a full one ounce endload which swings just like the Big Cat Senior bat.
3. Miken Freak30 is a 12.5" barrel with a 1/2 ounce endload that swings just like the Patriot senior bat.

If you really like your Dudley 13" el or Adidas el you will most likely love the Psycho. If you like Dudleys 12" barrel senior bat you will love the Freak30.

Balanced versions will be coming after the first of the year and each of these bats comes with a ONE YEAR WARRANTY. They are so good upon break in that they aren't far off senior bat performance.
I'll have some exciting Miken Senior news in the next 2 weeks or so so stay tuned.....!

Merry Christmas !

Discussion: When did bats start getting END CAPS ?

Jim,
Louisville Slugger started the TPS model that was rolled over and had urethane end loads. It was dark blue with silver and red writing on it. The visible end plug material was red. On my bats and other players under contract with Louisville bats, the visible plug material was black. Then they came out with the silver/black Rich Plant model that had a red plastic end cap. This is 1989/90 I believe. Easton then came out with the SX1 which was silver/black with a semi clear end cap on it with urethane/bb shot in it for end loads. Bombat did make some models slightly ahead of these with end plugs/caps as did Steeles. I was testing equipment for them back then and both of these were actually produced for them at American Modern Metals. I know Mike Macenko can also give you insight to this as he was also doing research and testing with Steeles back then.

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.
