Discussion: Prayers for Wayne Henck and family

Just received word that Wayne passed away last night. Wayne was truly one of the Great Guys who always had a smile on his face and was a pleasure to hang out with. May God Bless Wayne's family during this most trying time.

Gonna miss you Big Fella

Discussion: Using one ball for all games

SSUSA Staff

So are you saying, even though it seems the majority does not like the Trump Stote ball especially in hot weather, that this will remain your official ball for next season and beyond?

Wayne is such a good man. It's always a joy to see him at the ballpark. He loves the game and plays the right way, with class. Prayers sent for Wayne and his family.

Discussion: Using one ball for all games

Why not come out with a list of approved balls and have teams hit their own ball? That way the organizers wouldn't to supply/chase balls and teams could hit the "APPROVED" ball they prefer.

My bet is nobody would hit the trump stote, especially in hot weather.

Big E, good luck on finding the missing pieces you need. This is one of the best dudes in softball right here.

Brad, thanks for the kind words. Look forward to seeing you and the rest of MLM in Dalton. Your swing is money bro, no doubt about that. Keep busting it, just not against us.

Discussion: North Georgia Outlaws

Many of my team mates don't visit this site. I just sent them the phone number and let them know you need a couple for Birmingham.

Unfortunately our team, Affinity Elevators, couldn't make this tournament. Hope you get enough to play.

Discussion: Religious ceremonies at tournaments

As a guy who often prays after games I am honored and humbled to share my faith with fellow softball players. I respect those who may not believe and don't want to participate. Passing judgement on anyone is way above my pay grade. I love being a witness as well as hearing others do the same.

Alan, which bat are you testing, balanced or one of the end loads?

Discussion: Swing Weight: Miken Big Cat vs Dudley EL 13

I have had 3 Big Cats and currently have 3 of the 12" Dudleys.

The Big Cats have great performance but I've never gotten over 200 cuts one on. Miken was kind enough to replace one that busted.

The Dudley has less pop,IMO, but the durability is fantastic.

If you swing a 27oz Big Cat I'd go with the 27oz Lightning even though it will feel lighter than the Miken.

Discussion: Best ball in Hot Weather

Living in Florida we have both high temps and humidity. My personal preferences would be

1. Baden Fire Ball
2. Rock
3. Bullet
4. Tattoo

All four perform well in the heat and are very durable.

Discussion: Old stories of bat doctoring

One of my team mates had a bat that had 2" added. He sold the bat to another buddy of ours. We were playing in the Mullet and the guy who bought the bat gets up and hits a HR. We called him on it and he was called out. Funny now, not so funny back then.

Another team mate experimented with adding foam insulation, tennis balls and super balls to his bats. Nothing seemed to enhance performance that was noticeable.

Discussion: Jackslapp?

Google Whip Strip Baseball and it will take you to a site with video and purchase directions.

The Whip Strip and the Jack Slap are two totally different items.

Alan

With all the bat testing you do have you ever considered posting some videos. What would be interesting is comparing multiple bats at one time Versus testing one baT.

Discussion: Perl and the guys from Pensacola

Ron

We still have practice games at Exchange Park every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday morning. BP starts at 9:00 and games start at 10:00.

The Tournament is 5/14 thru 5/17 so if any 65 or 70 teams needs a player contact Ron.

Chances are, because of the tournament, practice games may be at Lyons Park.

Discussion: Dudley Lighning 12 inch senior bat.

Swing, I know a few of the guys posting here, Lefty, BruceinGa, jah#4 and Tri18. All four are very capable of hitting 300 ft + shots 4 out of 10 times hitting 44/375 balls with most, if not all, senior bats.

Joe

I had a 12" with approximately 1500 cuts that busted. I hit the bat in a few games when the temp was below 65, not real smart. Two guys I hit BP with have bats with around 2000 hits on them and they both hit it harder than I do. Definitely great bats.

Discussion: Tribute to one of the best!!!

The last time I saw Craig was at the Bowlegs in 2000. He was playing with his son John and they were both hitting it. Craig was pitching, talking trash and at 47 still playing at the highest level. Hard to believe both Craig and his son have passed. Definitely one of the best of all time. RIP.

Discussion: How to get more teams willing to play in the Major-plus division

I've played Senior Softball for 13 years and ideas to get more Major+ teams has been a topic for all those years. I think ISSA has the right solution, combine Major and Major+. Have an HR limit, say 6 and a push and use the bordering states rule. With a HR limit many Major teams can compete with + teams. This would force teams to be built on a combination of defense, basehitting and HR power. This would also make for larger brackets for the upper division.
