Discussion: U2 Handles
I heard a rumor yesterday that Miken was going to start making U2\'s with a \"normal\" handle again. Anyone else heard this?

Discussion: Remedy for Altered Bats
You know something is wrong, when guys you have played with and against for years ... are using the "same" U-2 and the same 44/375 ball we have hit for years, month in and month out, suddenly out of nowhere start hitting the ball 50 feet or more further than ever before. I find it hard to believe the bats have not been shaved.

Discussion: Updates at the T.O.C.
Gekle Builders ... thanks for the props. It was great seeing you guys and Sudsy again after what ... 16 years? Skyhawk Roofing lives on! I still have the ZUBA's warm-up pants buried in my closet.
You guys pounded it pretty good after Friday when you were able to shake off some rust. We were saved by the 5 run rule a couple of times.
Take care and hope to see you down the road. You guys have a great year
ps ... you guys didn't get too sunburned did you?

Discussion: Home runs, how far with a normal bat...?
Hey Bruce, Audie
It doesn't matter what bat is allowed by the associations.
When you play with and against the same guys (50+) for a number of years, using the same bats (U-2) and balls, same fields etc. .. I don't believe it is possible someone could all of a sudden hit the ball over 50' further than they ever have in our age group. Unless maybe they personally juiced up (didn't happen) or maybe juiced their bat up (Hmmm...).
Sad to say Ultras and Senior Combats are also being "altered". It's a clue when you see the one "team bat" being used by several guys, while a dozen other U-2's and Combats are lined up against the fence in the dugout.
Good luck at the TOCC.

Discussion: NSA Worlds
The Gary referred to in an earlier post is Gary Perkins. He used to play for Maroadis out of Pennsylvania and Little Caesar's. One darn good ballplayer. Gary Deaton is with Pine Knob also.
In the Major division, Travel Lodge was first, beating us, So Fla Blitzz twice, 14 -13 and 21-20, the final in the bottom of the 7th. Kitrell was third and Motor Men from Detroit finished 4th.
The Travel Lodge bunch hustled their fannies off and had to play 5 games on Saturday. A good group of guys who played hard and deserved to win.
