I'm sure Staff will let us know if I'm incorrect. ;)

Discussion: RECLASSIFYING A TEAM/AND OR PLAYERS

You may want to check out [Team Rating Index (R/I) Player/Team Experience ratings chart PDF digital file] or even call the office.
The players in question have a rating of 8 as being 55 M+. 60 M would be a 6.
It states the player:
2. May play ONE R/I less than HIGHEST R/I as one of three
"out-of-rating" players allowed on that team's roster
3. May NOT play TWO R/I less without PRIOR approval by SSUSA
Home Office under GRANTED exception request.

I had ACL reconstruction about 3 years ago. I couldn't play for almost a year.

Our league is also 6-12 but after my 8' pitches are constantly called flat I start throwing them waaaay up there, 16-18'! lol

You are correct, the bulls eye is between my thumb and index finger.
Keep me updated and we will keep this a secret! ;)

Discussion: slow pitch slider

I don't think you are wasting your time but, I really don't want my opposing pitchers to learn this pitch.
I've thrown this for the past 10 years, mostly in league but I have pitched in a handful of tournament games. It has really worked for me.
The way I threw it was to throw it as a two seam pitch. In the past year or so I've lost the ability to consistently throw it.
I've modified a ball like you pics show and it doesn't work for me. I've adjusted my fingers somewhat and think that I have hit on the best hand position for me.
I'm thinking that if the catcher should be able to see the bulls eye then I should be able to see a bulls eye on the opposite side of the ball. Right?

Discussion: When did bats start getting END CAPS ?

You are correct. Thinking back the 35oz Easton that I had in the late 80's had a semi clear endcap. I remember bats before that with a large plug in the end.

You are correct Joe! Steve is one of the best. I believe he, Bogie, Davey Reed and Bobby Davis will be in Cocoa Beach in a few weeks for Softball Magazine's Senior camp.

Monsta has several models of the Torch. I've used a Torch, the DNA and Flipper. All are much better than most ASA bats.
