If rolling a bat is illegal, then what is hitting a wooden telephone pole about 1/2 to 3/4 swing speed about 150 to 200 times with a thin towel wrapped around the bat and turning the bat as you go, a lot of parks 20/30 years ago had wooden telephone light poles and you would see guy smacking the wooden telephone poles for ten minutes or so and no park director of umpire said anything about the practice.. What about hitting a bat with a rounded rubber mallet with a towel wrapped around the bat hitting it 150 to 200 times spinning it after each hit. What does the rule book say about these two ways of breaking in a bat.

With these new fancy dancy bat testers coming soon to a tournament near you soon do these testers know when a bat has been rolled as opposed to being shaved?

Just go back to the way it was and be done with it. If I was umpiring I'd call the batters box the it way is was from day one and if your a pitcher your probably gonna get blown up once or twice. I was blown up a few times when I pitched(13 yrs) that's why I don't pitch any more, there are 9 other positions I can play.

just do away with it completely..

Why are we always trying to change the game its just fine the way it is.
Why did you have change the batters box it worked just fine for a lot of
decades. Then some people wanna change the commute line what's wrong
with it the way it is? The only change I agree with is the orange bag at
first base. We didn't really need it until guys didn't know how to run up
the line and touch 1st base, there was always guys that wanted to step
on your ankle when your foot was clearly on the inside of the base and
they had all of the base to touch.

"EXACTLY"

They never will "DUMB" down the bats then the old guys would wine that they
can't hit it out of the infield and then they would have to go play shuffle board
with there wives LOL LOL.. I know 4 70's plus players that use shaved just for
the very reason I mentioned, they definitely don't wanna play shuffle board with
there wives.

From T-ball all the way up to oldest seniors, male and female, you will never
stop people shaving bats. They been shaving bats or altering them from day
1 when aluminum bats came out. I've learned to deal with it and move on.

I feel you just need to suspend a player for the 1st offense and the next time ban him for calendar year from the time of the infraction just like pro sports and test his bat or bats at every tourney after he's allowed back, another failed test he's gone no excuses, gone for life he will never see the field again.

When has a whole professional sports team been banned from playing for one guy testing positive for PEDs? The guy is suspended for X amount of time for the first offense and X amount of time for the second positive test for PEDs and has to submit to random drug testing. A pro player on roids is the ABOUT samething as a wimpy, 5foot nothing guy using a shaved bat hitting 350/400' bombs, when 5 years earlier he could barely hit 275plus. I'd be willing to bet more then half the players on a pro sports teams know what teammate or teammates are using PED's but play dumb and turn there head the other way they don't wanna upset the apple cart and be labeled a rat, same in softball.

No matter what happens there will be people who think it should be one way and others think it should be their way.

What good is a batters box now a days? Before you know it there will just be a
line a few feet out that's parallel to the front of the plate where your foot can't
cross and your other foot can be any where behind you.

Why kill yourself trying to catch a foul ball when the batter has no fouls to waste, I wouldn't even move only
to retrieve the ball.

I agree with the life time ban but "Destroying the bat right away" is totally ridiculous!!!!

That would be life a cop pulling over an aggressive driver on the freeway and after finding
the person guilty then "DESTROYING" there car. Give me a break!!!!!!!!

OK the question is how can you tell difference between a rolled bat and well broken in bat?

* Does the compression test change between a rolled bat and a well broken in bat?
* If you cut the rolled bat and the well broken in bat open will there be visual difference
between them?

UNCLEBUCKGB:
What I don't understand why would you wanna pitch with the younger guys and
take a much greater chance/risk of taking one off the "COCONUT"?

I pitched for approx 13 years from 30 years old to approx 42/43 years old and in the
B division never was hit. I quit pitching in the middle of the 1st game of a tourney in
cali when a laser was hit right at my crouch and as it went between my legs it nicked
the bottom of my baggy shorts and after the inning was over I have not pitched another
inning to this day, IT NOT WORTH IT, It scared the crap out of me what would of happened
if it was 3 inches higher?

The only difference between a rolled ball and a bat with 50 to 100 hits on is not a thing
there both broken in just rolling gets the job done quicker and no evidence if the bat is
compression tested.

Why not lower the COR of the balls, then shaved bats would be pretty useless. It would
make the game more of a team game. You would have to hit according to the situation at
the time, how many outs and the score and inning, etc etc, it would put the skill of the players
back in the game not just a couple of walks and then a HR, couple more walks and another HR.
