Topic: Bats
Discussion: Proper senior bat weight as we age

You really need to swing different bats weights and compare them, trying to hit with power, line drives even opposite field. Keep track of how you hit and make a decision. Alan mentioned lots of factors and the only true way to make a correct decision is hitting with different weights, balance-end load, and even one-piece and two-piece bats.
Going to camps or even some of the clinics offering different bats to swing are great ways to accomplish this. Good Luck!

Discussion: WINTER WORLD'S • 65/70-Platinum Update

My name is Steven Imlay and I play for Omen 70’s. We just played in the Winter Worlds in the 65 Major division. We went 4-3 finished 3rd. Here are my thoughts on last week’s tournament.
First, I want to congratulate an excellent team the Scorpions. You all beat us twice and deserved both wins. You played well offensively, defensively, pitched well, clutch hits and a great group of players. Very proud you are representing Arizona in this very great division of Senior Softball. You will do well this year.
We did not play a bad team in the tournament and any of the teams we played could have gotten hot and beaten us. Parity is a great thing and you all are lucky to have that in your division. We played an outstanding R&R team which we had to play our best game of the tournament to beat these guys. Very impressive team that really hits the ball and plays great defense. You all will definitely win your share of tournaments this year. Great group of guys!! Scrap Iron is a team that does everything well and has lots of power and will be a force to deal with in the future tournaments. Old School and Animals played well and we were fortunate to get hot at the right times against these team. Old School will only get better as the year goes on and I understand the Animals may move up to 70’s - good luck you will do very well if you do.
My comment is on that you have a very competitive division and you all will get your opportunity to get hot and win a tournament. We are group of 70 and above players that are trying to compete against you all. I believe we did that and are very happy with the way we finished. Don’t get me wrong we like to win and we will play to win if we play in future 65 Major tournaments. We need the 11th player to compete with you all. If SSUSA decides to change the rule we will compete with the new rule as well. Big difference (as in all divisions as you move up) one day you all will understand.
I congratulate SSUSA for sticking with a rule that has been in place for at least 23 years. The results prove that it is a good and fair rule. Dave, I feel it’s been unfair to call you out on this process especially when the results prove you to be correct.
We do not go to tournaments to beat up on teams, no fun for either teams and you as a team don’t get better. We would prefer to go and finish 4-3 and play against very good competition. That is the bottom line in Senior Softball play against great guys and compete to win the tournament. Our goal is to improve and to see where we need to improve. I believe we did that this last weekend and hopefully we helped other teams to do the same.
I guarantee you, next time we play, we will do everything we can within the rules to beat you. However, if you beat us, we will congratulate you and figure out how we can get better. This is the Omen and Otis way.
Great tournament well ran with fantastic competition. Again, congratulations on all the team we played very competitive and class acts.
Look forward to playing you again or watching you as you go through this year to the Worlds which really is the most important tournament of the year!
You are with in your rights to disagree but these are my thoughts.

Discussion: Hitting Clinic in Medford, OR for Tom Amundson

Benefit Softball Hitting Clinics

Appreciate getting the word out about this clinic all proceeds go directly to Tom and his family!

July 23, 2019 – Medford, OR : The clinic in Medford, OR is a very special clinic for a very
close friend of mine, Tommy Amundson. We have played ball together and been close
friends for over 15 years. Tommy was a timber faller for 45 years, and he was helping
someone cut some firewood. A branch fell and knocked him out, causing him to fall to the
ground from a 6’ platform. Among other injuries, he broke his neck and back and is now a
complete T4 paraplegic.
Proceeds from the Medford clinics (with enough interest, we will do more clinics) will be
donated to Tommy to help cover the extensive medical bills and equipment that are not
paid for by his insurance. If you'd like to follow updates on his progress, go to Facebook
and search for a group called "Journey through Craig". His daughter Tracey gives great
updates there.
The family is also hosting a surprise homecoming party for Tommy in Red Bluff on
September 13, 2019. If you’d like more information, search Facebook for “Tom Amundson’s
Homecoming.” Tickets for the party can also be purchased directly from the website at
www.tom-amundson-homecoming.ticketleap.com/tickets.

Hitting Clinic will include:
SLiAcademy will provide a one-day class on understanding your swing, improving your
swing, and utilizing tools to be the best slow pitch softball hitter you can be.
Softball Hitting Clinic Details
Our classes include much more than just practice. We
include mental and physical information to improve your
approach as well as muscle memory. It requires
knowledge and hard work to become an improved
softball hitter.

Batting Tee with a video recording of your swing, drills
and instruction from Hitting Pros

Discussion: Launch Angle

Full Monty what is your body angle? If you set the correct body angle you will swing with slight angle up or down depending upon locations of the ball. Keeping the shoulders fairly square is important in that process. However if your looking at strictly launch angle Blast Vision recommends 10-20%. MLB keeps track of Launch angle and exit speed on every hitter on every pitch so you know it's important.
Hope this helps. Nancy great advice as always!
