Discussion: Best Batting Glove for Pratice

Mechanix original work gloves are better than batting gloves. They have a better grip and last way longer. You can even get them in different colors from their website. Most of the hardware stores just carry them in black.

I use the overlap grip with my ring finger of my bottom hand around knob. When I used regular batting gloves the palm would always get holes very quickly.

Discussion: SWING WEIGHTS

Listened to Dave's video again. He does state that the 2016 Big Cat swings heavier than the Dudleys. In fact he states he normally swings 28 oz in the Dudley but dropped down 27 oz in the 2016 Big Cat. I stopped listening too soon before.

fennellwg, I have the 2016 model. It definitely swings heavier than the 12" Dudley and is much more end loaded. I just reviewed Dave V's video before responding. He states the 2015 feels heavier than the 2016. However, I didn't hear any comparison to the Dudley. As I mentioned I took all my current bats as well as older bats comparing their balance points and the Big Cat was substantially more end loaded with one exception. That was the Demarini White Steel single wall bat that I use in a single wall league. They were comparable.

I got Dudley the 27 oz 12" Dudley last season. I was dissatisfied with it. Swung too light for me. So I got the 27 oz Big Cat. It feels much more end loaded.I compared the Big Cat's balance point to all my USSSA & ASA bats as well.It was more end loaded than all of them.

Go to seniorsoftballbatreviews.com. I agree with his assessment of both bats.

Discussion: Batting Average or On Base Percentage

My teams keep OBP the same as Alan Tanner stated with one exception. We did not count a SF as an out if it knocked in the 5th run or whatever the limit was. Otherwise we did count it as an out.

Also, for the guy who thinks guys who hit in force out or dp's count as on base. No one does that. They are outs.

Years ago I use to keep track of base on errors and noticed that the same guys usually had the most every season. Guys that ran fast or hit the ball hard.

Discussion: What is your favorite complex you've ever played at?

1. Botetourt Sports Complex in Salem, Virginia.Great fields; Dugouts with restrooms and electric fans.
2. Dalton, Georgia played there when it rained so much and so hard that I thought the whole weekend would be rained out. We were playing two hours later.

Discussion: For 70 and over. 11 players on the field. Like or Dislike

I'd like to see SSUSA go to 11 fielders in the 65's. We play with 11 in both the SPA & ISSA in the 65's and I believe it makes for a better game.

Discussion: Renewal of SSUSA card...online link

I suspect the guys having trouble may be changing age groups for 2016.The only players on my team who had trouble were 64 yr olds who were eligible to play 65's in the winter tournament and who turned 65 in 2016. I would suggest you call the office as my two guys did and ask for Tiffany. She got them both signed up over the phone. There was another guy who gave them bad info stating they couldn't sign up until Nov 1st. The team managers ( on their roster) also see a message stating these players can't renew until Nov 1st.

Also it seems you can only sign up for 5 yrs if you have 5 yrs left in that age group. Since I signed up for one yr at 65 when I renewed it only let me sign up for 4 yrs when I renewed this time.

I waited to post assuming SSUSA would answer these questions.

Discussion: Is it illegal to glue your endcap back in?

The article never mentioned the bat was shaved. From your comments I take it the player mentioned was then suspended for a shaved bat.So can you or can't you glue your endcap back in if it comes out?

Discussion: Is it illegal to glue your endcap back in?

According to the latest Senior Softball Newspaper a player was suspended when his endcap came off and the director detected possible irregularities with the glue and the end cap. It doesn't say the bat was shaved. In my last tournament my endcap came off during game. I've since glued it back in with white marine glue after reading about it on this board. Am I now in danger of being considered to be using an altered bat?

Discussion: Major plus problem

My AAA team played your team in the first game at Glen Burnie SPA last year. We didn't have any problem with playing you guys. You were limited to 3 hrs and we got an extra fielder. I believe you batted everyone. I think it was 17 guys. What impressed me most was your defense. An of'er made a headfirst diving catch going towards the warning track and your SS turned a dp on what was a sure hit in any other game. Also, with the hr limit you guys showed you could base hit. You run ruled us but so what; so did some AAA teams during the year.

I know another AAA team beat you guys in the pool games. I don't know what everyone is afraid of. I found it interesting to play you.

Discussion: 1-1 count? Playing Devil's advocate

The main thing that slows games down is courtesy runners. If you really want to speed games up that is the first issue that should be looked at. I played on a team in the past that ran like crazy even for guys who didn't need it and seldom played a 7 inning game.
