Discussion: Senior Softball Spring Training

I am happy to announce that I reached an agreement today to again have the famous Saturday night banquet at Mulligans on the Beach in Vero. Mulligans has hosted us for our first two events but were hesitant to commit to us taking up the entire back room as we did in the fall since it's the very lucrative tourist season right now. So....we will be at Mulligans again in February at one of the best restaurants in Vero Beach located right on the beach. Registration Is open now so call me to reserve your spot.

Hemi,
We got a cold front down here today too, it's only going to be 70 today. Time for jacket and sleeves. Off to test some prototype bats at the field right now. See you all in February at the camp!

Topic: Bats
Discussion: Endload?

Both of Dudley's bats that are end weighted have a 1/2 ounce end load. The swing weight/ dynamics change slightly since one barrel is 12" and one is 13".
Without getting overly swing weight/ center of mass/ balance point technical, the 12" FEELS just a tad heavier on the end. Many players feel it actually helps them achieve better bat speeds. The whole balance point issue can be debated on a wide variety of levels as there are many ways to try and define it. Keep in mind that every bat doesn't always weight exactly what it's marked and that weight could have been achieved either by more handle weight or more end weight. As I have often said, pick a top tier quality bat that FEELS good to you in your hands and when you swing it. It will most likely be the one that you have the most success with.

Hi everyone,
Just to clarify a couple of things as a result of recent inquiries:
The camp is open to any mens players who turn 50 anytime during 2016.
The camp is open to any WOMEN players that turns 35 anytime in 2016.
We do have a few ladies signed up already so girls , get with me and let's take your game to the next level! As of today we have players coming from as far away as Canada, Texas, Maine, and Upstate New York. I have a couple of California guys on the brink....time to represent your state people and come have some fun in Vero Beach the last week of February. Come to the senior camp dedicated to the senior athlete and elevate your game. Call me with any questions or to register at 561-718-7504. If you are coming to the TOC at the end of February may sure to look me up! You don't want to miss out on another great SSUSA event and Floridas nice fields and weather in February.

Discussion: Miken Team Shorts?!

Dbax,
They came down right about to the top 1/2 of my knee cap. I will measure some up when I get back in my office. They are semi loose fitting shorts and are not cut to be tight.

Discussion: Miken Team Shorts?!

Shorts?! Now we are doing reviews on shorts and since when does a bat company make shorts!.?
Ok, I thought it might be a little fun for the New Year and a little twist to the review section so I ordered some in. I got them in and took them out of the bag for inspection and here is what I came up with:
1. Good looking short and functional. They have two regular side pockets and also a cell phone sized pocket on either side.
2. They come in black or grey.
3. Embroidered on them is Mikens "M" logo and a small Miken Sports.
4. Very lightweight and breathable fabric.

So I put them on and tried them out and found them to be comfortable and very breathable which I like. You could wear these on a hot day for bp, for a game, or to go out shopping to buy something for your wife after you buy yourself some of these shorts. All in all for about $35 they are a good looking and very functional pair of shorts. I liked the cell phone pocket too that allows you to grab it easily without having to dig in the side pocket. Call me with questions.

Happy New Year to all of you!

Scot,
There is information on the Team 1 Sports website. Out of respect for the policy of SSUSA and this message board, I don't post the direct link or list the site address. I appreciate the fact that they let me post general info here in regards to the camp. Feel free to call me or email me anytime and I'll be happy to help you.

Hemi!
Food is a critical resource and I happen to like good food! Lol seriously, nutrition and hydration are two things often very much overlooked by athletes who think they are doing everything correct in an effort to being as good as a ball player as they can be. Understanding and dealing with these requirements is just another key element in helping ourselves to have an opportunity to succeed on the ball field as senior players. These topics and more are covered during our mini seminars and on banquet night at our Spring Training camp.. Don't miss out on the most comprehensive camp in the US. REGISTRATION IS OPEN NOW FOR OUR February 26-28 th camp in Vero Beach, FL.

Discussion: In your whole softball career who was the individual(s) (coach, player, relative, etc) who had the most impact on your approach, development and how you play the game? And why?

Allan,
Interested in how many swings you have on your new ultra II black from this year as compared to the Dudley?

Topic: Bats
Discussion: 2 FLEX or NOT 2 FLEX

OZ,
You are on track with your statement. It's not a simple question to answer unless you ...simplify it. By and large a one piece bat is stiffer than a two piece bat but....even that can be variable due to different lay ups in the handle area itself. Another thing that players sometimes mistake barrel flex for handle flex. Again, depending on design, this can be a different feeling from bat to bat.

Guys,
We now have three hotels that are basically in the same parking lot next to the Vero Beach Outlet Mall. (Designed to lure spouses and girlfriends, lol!)
These are at the main intersection of Rt. 60 and I95 and about 15 minutes from the South County Regional Park in Vero Beach where the training camp will be held.
Hampton Inn
Country Suites
Holiday Inn Express
Each of these are at various price levels with the best value being Country Suites. We now have campers coming from as far away as Canada and California and I'm excited to have each of you there. If you want a one on one experience where you can benefit during every phase of the camp, call and register now. You will find it to be the most comprehensive camp designed especially for the needs of the senior player.

Hemi,
My dad is a retired colonel ....he calls them "war stories" ! It's a a fun time for sure. I've been told by one of our campers the way to go right now is priceline on a few of the hotels right on Rt60/I95 in Vero Beach by the Outlet Mall. I will continue to work on them.
Wes, you can fly into Orlando or West Palm Beach and even Sanford is not far as well...

A hotel room update: Rooms are hard to come by in February. I am still working on a small room block but many hotels don't want to block off rooms ahead as they can get $200 per night for a $100 room that time of the year. I did get information today that will get you a room for $109 which is $80 less per night than usual. Make your reservations ASAP before rates go up:

Comfort Suites

Wes,
You are right as I really didn't list it correctly on the thread here but it is correct on the site. Thursday evening is just an informal meet and greet and the program goes all day Friday, Saturday and a half day Sunday. Hope you can make it.

Discussion: Mikens New Ultra II Black debuts.....

Oz,
I have sent hundreds of them around the country from various points of production runs. I have also personally hit bunches of the different models at different times. I haven't had anything reported to me note I have I experienced any major differences in performance in any of these bats. I did have one that took me an extra 50-60 swings to get it hot but otherwise, we have seen very consistent performance throughout these bats lives. Additionally, we have only seen 1 or 2 "early failures" that happened around 400-500 swings. Remember when we dreamed of getting 400-500 swings out of a hot senior bat? , lol

Webbie,
Not sure if your post was meant for this thread but? We had an actual Rep that works DIRECTLY for Dudley at our fall camp and he will be at our spring camp too. He will have the latest information and updates from Dudley along with demo bats for guys and girls to swing. Anything new coming down the pike from Dudley will be presented along with updates from the current line. The new back packs and bags that he showed us were certainly very nice! Hope to see you at our camp...

Discussion: Mikens New Ultra II Black debuts.....

So the 3 different models of Mikens new Ultra II Black have been out for a couple months or so and....the reports across the board show us what my testing showed..: a very high performance and durable senior bat in a variety of weight distributions. Mikens engineers go these bats done correctly and have set a new standard in the senior bat market. The good news now is that Miken has caught up at the production line and we have all sizes readily available to us. Get with me with any questions.
