Discussion: ARC OF THE PITCHED BALL

Exactly someone who gets it, you don't know how many times I am standing on infield behind my pitcher who is 6'2
and the ball is anywhere from 2-6 inches at least above his head and almost every umpire immediately calls illegal. And how in the world to most umpires not have a clue as to what 12' is?

Nancy you are right I was a little off ASA changed rule in 2009 took effect for the 2010 season so it has been if effect for 6 years now. As I said most of the new seniors have not seen 12' in years, 6 now! When SSUSA made rule change on homeruns one of their main points was ASA and USSSA all have DBO's for homeruns over the limit so SSUSA should be a well. Well they also both have a max pitch height of 10'. When should we expect SSUSA to follow suit since they pattern there rules I guess as they see fit to ASA.

I agree with D-Ballgame!! How many years now has every organization except senior ball gone to 10' or less? At least 7-8 years now. Most of the guys coming in to senior ball now haven't seen anything near 12' in years! And when you add the extra ft. or 2 that most umpires let go. Yea I would love to see the arc max height at 10'!!

Discussion: ARC OF THE PITCHED BALL

In my short time playing senior ball, I am amazed at how most umpires will call a ball in the 6 to 7 ft. range illegal 90% of the time but have no problem letting pitchers throw the the in the 13 to 14 ft. range and not call illegal.

Discussion: The Mid South NIT Cartersville Ga.

Not sure where your getting that prediction, I just looked 60% until 2:00 pm then it drops to 40% and partly sunny the rest of the day. Which if you live in the southeast is pretty much the standard prediction most of the summer. Good luck to everyone this weekend I am sure it will be great tournament!

Discussion: End cap repair

Should be able to get Loctite 2 part marine epoxy from hone depot or lowes. My knob came off my Legit used this and bat cracked before knob came loose again. Should work on endcap just as good.

Discussion: NEW Miken Freak Black Senior bat with a 1 year warranty

Adam,

Thanks for your response I don,t remember the old Ultra II's taking long to break-in, but at the time out of the wrapper they were far superior than anything out there those days. Hopefully Miken's new black will be a happy medium I think your post was correct with more durable bats that are pretty good out of the wrapper coming out all bat companies will eventually have to put one out to compete. As of now I have picked up a Dudley Lightning hopefully it will live up to the hype as of now I am impressed with it so far time will tell.

Again Thanks!!

Discussion: NEW Miken Freak Black Senior bat with a 1 year warranty

Question for Adam,

Why can't Miken produce a bat like the 2002-2003 Ultra II? I am in my second year playing senior ball. My 2003 Ultra II had over 2000 swings on if before it cracked. My first Ultra II in senior ball I got around 200 swings on it before it cracked. I have and everyone else I know that swings them doesnt get many cuts out of them as most other senior bats as well. Just curious I can't believe today's technology is inferior to what Miken had in 2003. Thanks for your response!!

Discussion: hip replacement

Its your decision, If he wont refer you to a Dr. that does them, find one on your own. Like I said apparently he doesnt do them it is a more complex procedure. And you can always get a total hip later if needed. Once you have the total hip done the upper part of your femur is gone not with that is your only option from there on. I would strongly recommend a second opinion from a surgeon who does resurfacing. Do some internet searches yourself and see the benefits. Good Luck!!

Discussion: hip replacement

I had both hips replaced in 2009 at 45 years old. I took a year off from playing ball, played 3 years after that with the young guys until I was eligible to play with the seniors I currently play with a major team out of Fl. I would suggest looking in to Hip Resurfacing as opposed to total hip replacement. If your doctor does not do resurfacing have him refer you to one that does. A lot of surgeons don't do the procedure as it is more complicated but you retain more of your natural bone with this procedure. I highly suggest getting replacement either way as I would not be playing today if I did not have it done. Good Luck!!

Discussion: You Make The Call

Mulewhipper this is one of the most mis-interpreted terms in ball. Simple way to understand if runner is not forced to advance it is not a force play. On a caught flyball baserunner is not forced to go anywhere, runner advances on his own discretion.

Actually runner gets home. Missed base is an appeal play umpire cannot only award runner 3rd based on missing 2nd because it would give defense an advantage to appeal missed bag! Runner gets home would be out if appealed for missing 2nd.

Same rule applies if runner has not made it to 1st, he goes to 2nd, if past 1st he goes to 3rd.

Discussion: combat dirty g3

I have swung Ultra II, Reebok Melee, Legit, Sr.Demarini. My current gamer is Worth legit, only swing in tourneys holding up good so far a little over 200 swings in it right now. Swing Sr. demarini for BP stiff out of the wrapper but after 200-250 cuts they are right there with most Sr. bats. Got 600+ out of my first one at about 350 on current one.

I wont debate you on the durability of most combats. Yet performance is a different issue, cant comment on some of the new dirtys just curious what bats are you comparing to performance wise?
