Hey Mike will you be at the Huntsman Games with these next week?

Hearing lots of good things about it and hoping to test drive one.

I like the looks of this! Hopefully it helps to speed up getting the brackets done after the seeding games are completed...

These are really close to sticker weight. Typically within .25oz. The days of the Miken bats being off by an ounce or more are gone...

Discussion: Players with the same number on a team

As long as players weren't trying to switch spots in the batting order with the other player wearing the same number it really shouldn't be a "critical" part of the game.

Again as others have said a simple piece of tape fixes the situation if it bother's you that much. Personally I'm happy I woke up on the "right" side of the grass and get to play the game I love...

Discussion: Miken PT vs Dudley

Not so strange for someone just coming to senior ball coming from Utrip where most tournaments test bats as there is a compression limit on bats there...

Welcome to Senior Ball BH96! This is great ball where you'll find the respect for the game on the field and the camaraderie of your opponents off the field is a welcome change from "kids ball"...

Discussion: Policy Change

That's a tough "one time" exemption rule for short-handed teams that are traveling to get to an event. Everyone is looking for more participation at tournaments from players to tournament directors. I understand there may have been individuals taki8ng advantage of the rule however, I personally believe that teams should be allowed to attend with 11 as a bare minimum and 12 is a safer bet if that means two or three exemptions. None of us are getting any younger and injuries happen at tournaments. Limiting a team to 10 is a good way to "encourage" people to play hurt so their team doesn't forfeit once start to play an event under these circumstances.

I believe the fact that the batted ball made contact with the pitcher and redirected to hit the runner would simply make this a live ball play...

The smooth end cap and date stamp on this could very well be one of the early U2 bats that were said to be the original Ultra redone as U2s...

Enjoy the bat it should be a lot of fun to hit.

Discussion: Bat for an ASA 52/275 ball.

That being the case obviously if he has the option to use his senior bat that would be the first choice. If he needs a USSSA bat I'd suggest any of the new Miken offerings as they all hit the 52/275 ball really well and the weighting options should make it easy to find a bat hombre is comfortable with...

You are partially right Katzy it is less than 1.21bpf so it's good to go.

This bat definitely exceeded the ASA limits but imo isn't as hot as a good senior bat. It's simply about comfort for the OP...

Discussion: New fields in Florida

If you mean the Seminole County Sports Complex it looks like it would be a great place to host an event. My only question would be are there removable mounds on all of the fields as they appear to be used for hard ball?

Discussion: Trump ball used in Reno - 40 Major plus

If the Stote ball is going to continue to be used hopefully it will at least be the micro cell version of the ball. Have yet to hit it since it's got humid out but it wasn't terrible at the ToC. Playing Detroit this weekend so we will see what feedback there is on the ball there.

I'd also advise you to stay away from the Advil. It's really hard on you. A great natural alternative is Tumeric. I was amazed how well this worked for me...

Discussion: Out of the Batters Box.

This is such a simple fix too. Adjust the batters box forward the length of home plate. Very few guys hit from the back of the box so it has minimal effect that way.

The other option is to re-write the rule that you must have one foot within the length of the plate at all times. This would never have the batter's back foot further forward than the front edge of the mat regardless of stride length which varies drastically depending on the height of the batter. For the guys who "shuffle" they could start with the front foot at the back of the mat and shuffle to finish with the back foot no further forward than the front of the mat.

I think this would also simplify things for the umpire as he can see the positioning of most batters who "plant" in the box at the start of the pitch so the only one that makes it more challenging is the batter who "shuffles" in the box. I think overall this would be much easier to enforce and would keep everyone happier.
