Discussion: Soft Toss Machine

Bruce: Your right. IMO that was the machine going for the price. I have used that machine for about 15 yrs. Unfortunately they are no longer made. I went to order a new one and John said the price of steel got so high that it wasn't worth it anymore. I don't know what I am going to use when mine finally breaks down. I guess it will back to hitting off my hand like the old days. LOL

Discussion: use of High COR, Low Compression ball

I agree. With the new ASA bats and a quality ball there should be no problem

Discussion: miken dc 41 asa

Just finished testing 2 27oz to see which I wanted to keep. Overall they were about equal but I would give the edge to the 2017 mainly based on the sound of the bats when hitting. The main difference is the the 2017 has the rubber fitting and the 2018 doesn't which probably accounts for the difference in sound when hitting. Also the 2018 feels stiff both my 27 and 28 oz bats.

Discussion: ASA Bats Not Allowed in Vegas

lowprofile: The reason I used an ASA bat when I was playing tournaments was because of results. I started with a Sr bats. Because I didn't have the power to reach the fences so most of my shots were outs. Switch to my ASA bats and know my line drives didn't reach the outfielders so they would drop in for hit. In my book I will take the hits with my ASA Bat in place of the nice looking fly balls for outs with a Sr bat.

Discussion: Question for Dave/ SSUSA Staff..I have a 30oz senior bat and want a 28oz endload, can you send to manufacturer to change?and be legal

Good luck on having that done. IMO that would be tampering but who would know.

Discussion: STRIKE MAT

One way is to cut them in half and then hinge them together so it folds. That would make it half the size. The only problem that may be the two pieces that extend up the slide of the plate.

It is not that hard. Anyone who knows how to handle a saw can do it for you. Where you purchase the material will do it for little or no cost. The main reason is it eliminates all four of your concerns mainly the mat sliding around, Locked up against the plate it dosen't move.

Discussion: STRIKE MAT

I found the easiest to make was wood. You make it with the V cut out so as you can slide it right up to the plate. With a little grounds keeping it is level with the plate and under normal conditions doesn't move.

Discussion: Excessive Speed Pitch

Like many of the pitching rules it is rarely called. In my years of playing I have seen it called only once. I am probably one of the big offenders of this rule but never been called on it.

The ones I got have the SSUSA logo on them. I know that Leather is more expensive but to me they were worth it.

I am curious also what happened to the Leather covered one. I ordered the Leather covered ones but got the Synthetic ones now neither one is listed on the BSN website.

Discussion: Senior Ball Exit Speeds & Lawrence Reedus on Pitching Strategy SM#73

Love his pitching strategy. If I didn't know better I would thing that I wrote the script for him. Like his ideas on walks I have been saying that for years.
