Big JimC

Director Tim has done that in the past. I believe a player once took photos of the on site brackets and posted them.

There are results Jmac, just not posted yet. Around 25 teams were done on Thursday. With only six posts so far, you will learn that tournament results of all games take awhile.

Discussion: shipping more than 1 bat at a time

The USPS, UPS, or FedEX might carry 36" tubes. Amazon does, but a little pricey. I bought a couple from the USPS to put in my bag to make it easier to put in and remove a bat.

Discussion: 35-35 Amazing!

During our BP session today, I showed Col Mike Smith this thread. He takes out his phone, pulls up HOF Don Clatterbough. During a stretch of tournaments, Don went 102 out of 104 at bats and he had power to spare.

Discussion: Definition of "moderate speed" of a pitch

I'm thinking what would be considered a pitch that is too fast originated from close to the 50' pitching rubber and only reaches 6' high. Most of those type 0f pitches probably only reach the front of the plate.

Discussion: Thumb gaurds

Not really, but more controlled and consistent swings. At 76 my bat speed is still going to come from good and consistent swing mechanics and time in the gym. In all honesty, I doubt the MLB players, who get these guards for free, are getting more bat speed or power. Another item used is the bat grip taper. Makes the left hand feel so much more comfortable.

Discussion: Thumb gaurds

I've used both the guard with a wider rounded end and the thumb pro. The thumb pro is the only one used currently. It works on either hand, feels comfortable, no sting in cold weather, and helps keep the bat positioned properly in my hand. The Thumb Pro initially cost $25, but is at $30. The Pro Hitter's product can be bought for about $9. If you do buy one of them, get two. I've had a couple misplaced the last couple of years.

You might have to sign up before looking for a team. Their website has been changed.

Discussion: Tag Up

If I don't know the umpire, I let them know that I'll have one foot hanging over the lead edge of the bag and the other one behind the bag. I'll start moving towards the next bag when the ball is a couple of feet from the glove. The lead foot is still in contact with the bag, but my 150lbs is already in motion. Haven't had a defense appeal leaving too soon in years.

It wasn't your gig Tim, but will the TG Proton results be posted shortly? The 65-80's finished on the 16th. Thanks.
