Discussion: The Villages Florida

Hi Gary- The fields will close after the 16th. There are tournaments finishing up on the 13th and 15th in the morning at Buffalo Glen. I will be there both days if you want to hit after the games. I think that the other fields should be available every afternoon since most of the lower divisions have finished their seasons. See you next week. Bud

Discussion: bat rolling

My local softball batting cages are now offering bat rolling for $25. How much more distance could you expect and would it hurt the bats durability? I swing a 26 oz. Reebok Melee legend. I know it is illegal and would not have it done, Just curious, as these batting cages have been here for years and never had this service before. Anyone have any experiences with bat rolling?

Discussion: Tanel cleats

Hi DMac-I have worn Tanels in the past, but I now wear 3n2 turf cleats. Very comfortable playing the outfield.

I use a Shoeless Joe 14" "H" web model. This is a great glove with little or no break in necessary. The glove cost me $160. Top leather hand made glove.

I have used Mizuno, Under Armour and Tanels and the cleats I wear now, 3N2 turf are the most comfortable I've found.

Discussion: Hitting from tee vs. hitting pitched ball

I've been hitting off a tee for a few years now after I saw Bogie's DVD Blasting Bombs,spraying singles. I was so impressed by the way Roger "Doc" Clay { RIP } hit off the tee that I got one the next day. The tee I use now is a Worth that extends to 60". A good deal for under $50. I think Bruce is right on the money as I hit about 30' further off live pitching. By the way Bruce, I guess it was about 3-4 years ago that I played against you in a tournament here in the villages, A friend of mine,John Davide ,played third base on your team Spicer. You guys won the final game against Rose Ent. 36-35 when Rose had the tieing run on 2nd base in the bottom of the 7th. Unfortunately, he was also the on deck batter so after an intentional walk to the batter,the game was over. I also remember that you lined a home run over the right field fence. Bogie-thanks for the great swing makeover series. Bud

Hi 17Black-The Soaring Eagle complex is open . I'm sure there will be batting practice there on the 19th. The phone # for softball info is 352-259-5377. That is the Saddlebrook rec center. If you are around on the 29th, look me up. I am playing for the Indians. All Div.1/2 teams will be practicing at Saddlebrook. Divisions 1and 2 always play on wed. & Fri. -Bud

Hi 17Black-Just found out that there will be no evaluations until Jun. 2 due to major maintenance at Buffalo Glen complex. The Saddlebrook complex will be open after maintenance on Apr. 25th, so you can hit there on the 26th. The summer draft is tomorrow night, and when I find out what team I'm on, we will be having a practice on Wed. the 29th. If you are here you can practice with my team. Bud

Hi 17Black-

practice is permitted on all of the fields any time there are no league games scheduled. All the fields are open all day Sunday. Everyone has to have 3 evaluations. They are normally held at Buffalo Glen complex at 8 on Tuesday mornings. After you are evaluated, you are required to play one season at that level. After the first season, you may move up or down one level every season. There is an open draft before each season. If you are not drafted at the level you want to play, you will be dropped down to the next lowest level, or you can stay at the level you desire to play at as a sub. As a 50 major player, I am sure you will be evaluated as a 1st division player. Just show up at evaluations with your Villages I.D. The 3 evaluations do not have to be done consecutively. You can do them whenever you can. Divisions 1 and 2 are playing together this summer and will have 15 teams. After you are evaluated you can sign up to play as a substitute in any of the games. Each team has 12 players. Currently, there are about 60 subs signed up for Div. 1/2 this summer, but all newly evaluated subs have priority and play first. Good luck. Bud

Hi George- You can go to any complex and take batting and fielding practice. The players usually start hitting before 8 a.m. I prefer the Saddlebrook complex( next to the Polo field) It is located on Buena Vista blvd, About a quarter mile north of Road 466. There are no set times for any particular groups. I am playing in two tournaments at the present time-Central Florida league as well as the Rec league, so I will be resting on Easter Sunday. Bud

Hi George- There is open batting practice all day on Sundays including Easter . There are Division tournaments going on now during the week. The fields should close for maintenance on 4/11 and open in early May. The Buffalo Glen complex will be closed for the entire month of May for major maintenance. Division 1 and 2 will be combined for the first time, and will play at Saddlebrook in May and move to Buffalo Glen June 1st for the rest of the summer.The new complex, Soaring Eagle, is now open, and the 68 yr. old classic league and the women's league are playing there.

Discussion: The Villages softball tournament

Hi PJ3P-I find it interesting that you mention Miami Power-Team 1 losers bracket final game. I watched the game on field 3. It was the first game of the day on Sunday morning. Team 1 Sports hit 4 home runs in the first inning alone and proceeded to out homer every team in the tournament. In the 2 games against Bradenton Blast ,Team 1 scored 29 and 24 runs with a lot of home runs. Some of the balls must have been good, or maybe they went over the fence sideways. Good luck with your team. Maybe the tournament will be better next year.
