Discussion: pitchers mask

I would suggest Rip-It pitchers masks. I haven't tried any others but it's what I see being worn pretty often, even by fastpitch or little leagues. They are meant to be worn by infielders as well, so they stay on nicely and don't get in the way of your vision. They also have one that eliminates glare.

Not sure if there is a good selection in stores but you can get a good variety online at the basic sport stores and I also found a good site that explains different types of protection and describes Rip-It masks in depth- Someone suggested getting a mask with plastic bars so it isn't as heavy, but I'd be afraid that would break easier. They use steel for better protection but it's lightweight so it isn't heavy. I'd also suggest trying on the mask and playing with it in practice or a game to see how you like while you're actually in action.

I know a couple pitchers that got hit so even if some people think the bats are to blame, it's still good to take protective action.

Discussion: suggestions to stop all the complaining about home runs & dead ball outs

I think the home run rule should be rid of and the runs amounted rule is what should stay and be forced. If the run rule is say 7 in an inning and you get 7 home runs in 1 inning with no on at base, then your runs are up. I think it's ridiculous to limit the number of home runs unless there are always bases loaded or something along those lines. The rule should just be switched to focus on runs per inning and let the team bat until those runs are reached.

Discussion: Can someone tell me why DeMarini Black Ops bag is so expensive

I hate when bags are expensive just because of the name, especially since they usually fall apart after a year! I like their idea of just getting a duffle bag to put your regular bag into for flying purposes. It's not worth the money of a travel bag if you just have to continually get a new one.

Discussion: Ca players etc etc

The weather in SoCal has been crazy this winter. I'm originally from the east coast, but have lived down here now for a few years. Definitely still not used to 80 degree winters, but this winter seems even more out of the norm.

Discussion: Swing Makeover 11 up...Transition from working mechanics on your swing, to a pro style single focus

Thanks bogie, this was great! As I get older, it gets more difficult for me to improve my swing because I think to much about it and just wind up going right back to what I've always done. This is nice a simple to improve little by little
