Someone correct me if I'm wrong. I have been told the originals had a tacky surface down to the grip. The reissued bats were only tacky on the barrell.

I believe you meant to say SSUSA.
I can only think of two reasons why one would want to us an ASA bat in an SSUSA tournament. Well, maybe 3 or 4. ;)

Staff, is the Onyx senior bat approved for SSUSA play? I don't see it on your approved list but am told that it was allowed in the Masters Championships in Vegas in 2018.

Bogie, I think you should have kept the camera on Mike a little longer when he was helping. Lol

At Softball Magazine's Senior Camp I attended a presentation by Bob O'Brien, a college pitching coach and, I believe, a sports therapist. He now plays with Team Kitty.
He recommended the shoulder exercises as presented by Dr. Jobe. They can be found with the help of Google.
The presentation was all about not working out Dad (Deltoid) and working out the 4 Kids, Supraspinatus, Infraspinatus, Teres Minor and Subscapularis. (Whew, I'm glad I still have the handouts he gave us.) To see the entire handout you can view it at our league facebook page, Georgia Elite Senior Softball.
The main thought, in my opinion, was don't use over 3 lbs in each hand and do 3 sets up to 30 reps each.
This past year I was diagnosed with a partial tear of the sprespinatus, fraying of the infraspinatus and labral tear. I'm fortunate that this is in my glove shoulder and doesn't affect my swing.
I just finished my second week of doing Dr Jobe's shoulder excercises, every other day and find a decrease in pain and increased movement in my arm.
I would suggest that if you have rotator cuff problems you check into this.
Hi Webbie and Joe!

About ten years ago the talk was that The Wheeler Dealer was the one to get. It was found that it needed to be elevated on a milk crate before an acceptable height was obtained.
I don't know if they are still manufactured.
