Discussion: OKRA FOR POSSIBLE DROP IN GLUCOSE/SUGAR LEVELS FOR DIABETICS ?

In the end it comes down to hard work maintaining a good exercise program and diet. There is no easy way.

Discussion: teams looking for players

There is still an art to pitching with the mat. There are pitchers and there are throwers. Good pitchers have movement on their ball and works the edges of the mat and stays away from the middle of the plate. Throwers are ones that can basically throw strikes down the middle of the plate.

ju25. Your right missed the 2013. Why would they pick that one? I would guess because it says Ultra and they don't know the difference.

Not an Easton person so can't help you but for that price I don't see how you can go wrong.

Discussion: ASA Bats

The Ultra has been banned in ASA since a few months after it came out and that is why the first ones have the ASA stamp on them and the rest don't.

If they are the 52's we have had very good results from the Miken Freak52. They now make a balanced and a end load one. Overall IMO most of the new bats for the 52's perform well and just depends on which one you feel comfortable with. You should be able to find 1 or 2 yr old new ones for $175-200.

If they are using the 44's then you may want to stay away form the new stamp ASA bats. They perform very well but there is a question of durability with the thinner walls.

I just got a Jeff Hall Legit HD52 with the extra .5 end load which shows good promise but haven't used it enough to judge it yet.

Discussion: Winter World Championships Results

At this point I think it is a lost cause like posting of most of the East Coast Tournaments. Been complaining about the coverage of the East Coast.

Discussion: batter's box

I just found it difficult to pitch to them. I usually pitch to the inside edge of the mat which now becomes the middle of the plate for the batter and it seemed all the batters that stood on the 4' line hit to right field and in the 80 div you don't usually have a mobile fielder in right.

Discussion: batter's box

Gary: I guess you never pitched. Try pitching to a batter that stands 4' away from the plate which we had to do at one tournament because they used the wrong dimension when they lined the batter's box.

Discussion: Finding a bat's swing weight

Bruce: When I buy a bat I usually ask the actual weight of the bat. For example if I am buying a 28 oz bat and the actual weight is 28.8 oz then I am pretty sure that the swing weight/balance point is just right for me. I just bought a 28 oz Worth Ligit HD52 and the reason I bought that one is it weighed 28.8 oz which turned out to be just right for me. A good end load feel without being too heavy. Reminds me of all my PST's that I owned.

Discussion: Finding a bat's swing weight

As the location of the balance point changes the weight on each end is going to change also. I have two 29.4 oz bats and the balance point is different on each so I know the one with the bigger balance point is going to swing heavier than the other so why do I care what the actual weight is of each end? It looks like taking a simple answer and making it more complicated with the end results the exact same.

Discussion: Finding a bat's swing weight

Why get so complicated. Wouldn't getting the balance point tell you the same thing. Why do you need to know the weight.

Discussion: Where do you play during the winter month's?

No it is a large soccer facility and we use 1/2 giving us 220' down each line. The only problem is low ceiling about 50' high. The good thing about it is that it makes you learn to hit line drives to keep it below the net.

Discussion: Where do you play during the winter month's?

We play indoors twice a week. As for myself the other days of the week I am out taking BP and taking a couple of laps around the track when done all winter as long as it isn't raining or windy.

Discussion: For 70 and over. 11 players on the field. Like or Dislike

I like the 11th player covering the middle. All our leagues here in all age groups us 11 players and I haven't hear any complainants from any of the leagues.

The only down side of the 11th players is it knocks about 100 points of you batting average. You have to learn to hit away from the 11th player.

Discussion: SCREENS IN TOURNAMENTS

19: I know what you mean. I was the cause of our league going to screens when I got a line drive just above my left eye. They went to screens the next game and I refused to pitch the rest of the year if I had to use the screen. Next season I thought about it and decided to pitch, as that is what I love doing, and learn to accept the screen.

You would be suprised how much fielding the pitcher can still do (depending on the rules in the league)
