Discussion: Favorite Ugly Strike You Love to Hit

Know what you mean. Got in my first full BP workout session today in Ma. Little windy but nice.

My favorite pitch to hit is either the knuckler or curve ball. Mainly because pitchers that throw them do it too much so you know when it is coming.

Sorry If Mod can delete mine. Wrong Question.

I agree. What is the relevance of the question

Discussion: Second Home plate for National Tourneys

I agree. I rather see the 2nd home plate. There is always that chance that the runner coming home will miss the plate.

You just take an extra home plate and lay it down, you don't need a permanent 2nd home plate so it has nothing to do with the fields.

If I remember right the original Ultra II's were clocked at 114 MPH which is why they were banned in ASA.

Discussion: Not HAPPY with Bats Unlimited!

Had same problem with FEDEX with a non-softball item. Item was damaged and they claim it wasn't packed right. I was out only $150.00. Never will use FEDEX again.

Discussion: Best 44/375 ball available?

IMO it is the Evil. They have a variety of them. If you don't need an Assoc on the ball the MCT Non-Assoc is the best one.

Our only complaint, if you want to call it that, is the facility. They should have told us it wasn't heated and we could have dressed accordingly.

Your right it is a mammoth task to run something that big and hats off to the people who had to do it.

The only bad part, beside the banquet, I had to go back to Ma in the middle of a snow storm.

Discussion: TOC Brackets

I play with the Gray Sox 80's our of MI. They just cancelled our indoors tomorrow. That would have been the last chance for some practice before leaving. I hate going down with no preparation but that is NE weather. Suppose to get light snow the morning I leave.

Can't wait to get there and get out of the N.E. weather. I've been shut down for a week and the next 3 days don't look any better.

Discussion: Facing one batter

I seen that called in a tournament in Canada about 13 yrs ago. I found over the years that the Canadian umps were very strict. That same tournament, the only time I seen it, the ump called a pinch runner out because he had a watch on. The other weird call I seen up there was a pitcher called for pitching the ball at an excessive speed for slow pitch.

All in all the London Ont tournaments were some of my favorite tournaments.

Discussion: Shoulder Pain

What has worked for me is ShoulderShield can be found at www.shouldershield.com. A little expensive but it really works for me. It is a jersey with special material in the shoulders and arms that keeps the heat in. When I get done after our games my shoulder and arm are all wet. The only problem I have found with it is on a really hot day it is uncomfortable especially if you get a tight fit.

Discussion: Endload or balanced?

Bubble Gum: Just personal experience. I have always outhit balanced and lighter bats with my end loaded bats. It still comes down to the player. I would be willing to bet that studies and stats would say I am using the wrong bat but you can't prove it by me.

Discussion: Endload or balanced?

30 oz End Load all the way. Just can't swing a balanced or lighter bat. Over the years I have tried but always end up back with my 30 end load. Like the end load on the pre 2004 ASA bats best before ASA cracked down. My 29 oz R&B PST is a dream to swing.

Discussion: Need Help On Selecting a ASA Bat

We have had very good results from the Miken Freak52 if you use the 52/300 ball. I bought the first one and now we have 15 players using it and they all love it.

If you are using 44/375's I will leave that to others as my gamer with that ball is a PST

Discussion: Balls 52/300

Depends what you are looking for. For durability I would go with the Evil's. The Tattoo's have a little better game performance but don't stand up over a long period of time. (We use our game balls for BP and pickup games which we play a lot of which is why I prefer the Evil's)
