Discussion: pitchers mask


Don't know where you play ball.....

So you think senior softball players need composite bats to hit the ball 300 feet or more.

You are insulting to many senior softball hall of fame players by insinuating that they only got into the HOF because of the bats they used, and that they are not capable of hitting a softball 300+ feet using a WOOD BAT!


It would NOT VERY HARD to find 100's of senior softball players across the country that can hit a softball 300' using a WOOD BAT.

For those of you that think the whole blame for wearing masks is on the bats only.

Did you see the shot Aroldis Chapman took to the face?

Discussion: ~~~TIMING~~~

I am sure that all of you know that the BEST SWING in the world means nothing if the TIMING is "OFF".

Swinging too soon or too late most likely results in a poor contact hit if at all.

And yes, I know practice is a great help.

But what do you use under the pressure during game situations?

Like the winning run is on 3rd with 2 out in the bottom half of the last inning.

So my question is:

What technique or method do you use to help insure your timing will be "ON" during a game?

Discussion: 1 piece~2 piece

Is there any real advantage that the 2 piece bats have over the 1 piece?

If so, what is it?

Any input is appreciated.

Discussion: Suspensions

I'm glad so many of you are concerned about safety playing Senior Softball.

So will any of you that posted on this thread please tell me how many players on your teams wear the most basic of protection, a CUP?

Do you guys wear a CUP? Probably Not!

How many of your infielders wear any protective equipment?
A chest protector or a face mask? Probably Not!

Do you?

If not, WHY NOT?

I would guess that less than 50% of you wear any type of protection.

If you want to preach safety why don't you tell your team mates to start wearing protective equipment. And listen to the excuses!

You may not be able change when and where the games are played but you can wear protective equipment and save yourself a trip to the hospital.

Just Curious....

I have heard of guys "breaking in" their new bats by various means other than hitting balls.

I was told that hitting the new bat against an old car tire covered with a towel works real well.

Has anybody tried this?

What were the results?

Any thoughts or opinions?

Discussion: EYE BLACK

I was just watching the Yankees/Rays game on TV. I noticed Travis Hafner wearing eye black under his eyes. I have been told that the purpose of wearing eye black is to reduce glare. Has anybody out there ever used eye back? Does it help? What can you tell us about your experience wearing it. Thanks for any info you may have.

Discussion: GSC Bat approved for Senior Softball

2 guys on this board have reported being at "The Factory" months and even more than a year ago. What were the employees doing when they made their visits to the "Factory"?

And they still haven't made 2000 bats?

How long does it take to make these bats?

Sure, R&D takes some time but these guys claim they were at the factory where the bats were being made.

Discussion: Miken 2 pc End Load vs Reebok End Load

I was told the Miken 2 piece is every bit as good as the Miken Red bat which is very comparable in performance to the end loaded Reebok. Plus it's supposed to have better durability than either the Miken Red or Reebok.

Discussion: The Stutter Step

"Walking The Box" is a term I don't think I ever heard before. It seems to be very popular with guys from Chicago and New York.
Also guys I have seen using the "walk the box" style of hitting use it for every pitch, not just only for the third strike.
