Discussion: Jose Moreno's Bat challenge

What's so hard to believe about an old guy wanting to add 25-30 feet to their fly balls?It only cost a mere $3o to add 30 feet to your high flies!!!!

STLO your right my kids are very good human beings with surprisingly good jobs.They know how I feel about illegal bats.No where did I say my boys swing illegal bats in games?I said all the young teams have them,so they don't complain about bats during the game? I'm just mad they've reach the senior level and the playing field is being tilted by the cheated!Shaved bas are everywhere on the senior circuit open your eyes and ears and observe!

22 when did you ever see a bat taken after a pitcher was blown up in Senior ball?
STLO I don't tell him anything, he's 32 years old.Go to a youngster tournament and watch them swing.You'll see why the statement if you ain't cheaten you ain't competen becomes reality!A few yeas ago the young guys were yelling at each other about illegal bats not anymore.Everyone has them now and you never hear a word about swinging glass!It's like an unwritten rule in their rule book now.The World's are different they test the bats but like steriods the bat doctors are ahead of the testing.The young guys are smart and don't blow up a pitcher in a sanctioned tournament thats an automatic bat testing!Instead they blow up an infielder with no worries.Any wonder softball is dying?

I have to agree that the Issa is head and shoulders above Ssusa when it comes to posting scores and standings.Issa has the scores for every game posted at their conclusion.Its 2017 not 1978 get with it SSUSA.

I blame our problem on the young guys, especially our sons!!!!It's here dad swing my bat in bp and your son's bat hits it harder and farther than your senior bat.Hey dad for $30 you can get your bat done and you can be a homerun hitter.Ego kicks in and you give the local bat doctor $30 and your Superman on your 65 team!

Jdub you are absolutely correct and it's ashame that this is happening.The only solution is bats with a solid dome and no end cap but this isn't happening.The administrators of all senior softball associations know there's a problem but like MLB did with steroids they're all in denial!

AJC unfortunately he was not kidding when he made that statement.Thats the way it is in the youngster tournaments now.I was with them in the GSL states(in Pa) a couple of weeks ago and they were all swinging glass.The teams know what's going on but to compete they cheat and don't even mention each other's bats!Sadly it's reached our level too.For only $30 your 280fly turns into a 310 foot boom!I got back from Cary NC(ssusa)yesterday and played in a WVa Usssa E State today.The only thing Im saying is I wish I didn't know as much as I do about bats.I'm done with the shaved bats discussion! I'm going to stick my head in a hole in the sand and pretend there's no problem!

I can't believe not many on here want to discuss altered bats!!!I guess they are a figure of my imagination and don't exist in the real world.At your next senior tournament pay more attention to bats,swings,exit speed and distance you might learn something?BWDIK

In the words of my youngest son "Dad if you ain't cheaten you ain't competen!"This philosophy has reached us seniors and it's spreading like wildfire.Its the fight fire with fire thinking.The administration of the associations will say it ain't so but it is.

If you guys don't think SHAVED bats are becoming commonplace in Senior softball I have Ocean Front property to sell you in Pa!!!!You only have to pay $30 to get them done here in Pa and the results are very,very noticable.You guys haven't noticed little "old" guys suddenly showing power while not increasing bat speed in our tournaments?I know they're working out more.Wr might have to break out the bat testing machines in Senior softball?

Fabe I agree with you, roll out a sock and I'll still play and give my all.Adjust your game to the ball being used.

Perl what makes you think I'm not a power hitter?Just because I said you have to play defense to win if the ball doesn't go out of be park?I guess being a infielder I like defense to be a big part of the game.And by the way I hit a homerun last Sunday in the finals of the ISSA tournament in Myrtle Beach.When was your last great catch Perl that won a game?

My goodness the ball wouldn't go over the fence and you had to play defense to win,what a shame!Softball should be all about homerun and nothing else.

Discussion: Fields at Shadow Rock

77 I used to play for a really good team back in the day in Pa.Bobtown Pizza.So when this new fangled thing Social Media came out I took the username Pizzaboy.Agree with you 3-4 are nice 1-2 shouldn't be played on especially at our age.Have a good one!

Discussion: Fields at Shadow Rock

77 you lost me when you said all fields at Shadowrock are good!!!If you think field 1-2 are good softball fields I question your knowledge about what a good softball field is.I've been playing Senior Softball since 2001 and those are the worst outfields I've ever played on.I played in Morgantown,Wva and those outfields are terrible but fields 1-2 are worse!

Rick great to know your alive and kicking!I always say the best catch I ever saw in Senior Softball was by you.Was that before or after you hit kicked out of the game in the first inning after you got a hit?We did well because we were short two outfielders that's why my old butt was in right center!We came in 5th out of 39 teams.W ere you playing out there?Always a pleasure and don't be a stranger.

Discussion: Fields at Shadow Rock

I played RC for Pill&Pill this weekend at Shadow Rock.The dirt infields on the turf fields were OK with few bad hops and of course the outfields were excellent.The big minus on field #4 was in late evening the RF,Rc,2b ,P and 1b couldn't see the ball off the bat.Don't even get me started about the outfields on fields 1-2!They are pathetic with a capital P.My goodness they are terrible.If I were SSUSA I'd be ashamed to use those two fields.They have a few vine weeds trying to cover the dirt and rocks in the outfields.Plus the infields were yielding quite a few bad hops!If I were Rick Pill and paid that much money I'd still be beating someone's ear!!!!!I can't believe they used those fields in a tournament of this magnitude!But hey what do I know I'm from WVa!!!!!!

Discussion: Heat stroke

I have to agree with Bushbuck and Cat the schedule could of been better.I play for Pill&Pill 60AAA and we played 5 games in that heat on Saturday!Come on that's ridiculous for the young guys to do let alone the 60s.We started the last game at 5:30,I'd of rather played at 8am on Sunday!Poor,poor planning by RB on this one!And yes our pitcher was one of the five taken to the hospital from Potomack!I love to play but 5 games in one day when it's 100 degrees isn't a joking matter guys!
