Discussion: A Question 4 U Bat/Math Geeks

Dave, that's 1 fast fly. I'd have to say since both trains would have met at the 50 mile mark the fly flew a distance of 70 miles, providing of course he didn't stop anywhere along the way to rest.

Discussion: When did bats start getting END CAPS ?

The first end cap that I remember seeing was in the mid to late 80's. I hadon't two of them, they were the Easton SX-1 Power Core. The end cap was semi clear. I believe they labeled it as CU-31 Alloy. It was a great bat at that time.

Discussion: Adidas Melee Bat Problems

Ed, I played today in a NCSSA tourney in Pleasanton and they had a tent sent up with bags and bats. I picked up the Melee there as did four of my teammates as well.

Just wanted to update you as I said I would contact you on Monday and I didn't want you to think I flaked on you and I hope this doesn't sound like I'm rubbing it in. It seemed like a very convenient purchase and was able to walk away with the bat the same day.I couldn't pass it up. If any others on our team want a bat though I will give them your info !

Discussion: Miken Ultra II vs Dudley Lightning

Jimmy, sorry to hear about the bat but there isnt 1 bat manufacturer that produces senior bats that will replace a bat that has that many swings on it. I also bought the new Bug Cat toward the end of last season and it lasted just over 300 swings. I've had quite of few Mikens and that seems about as many swings as I've seen them last. The only difference is this bat developed cracks going up and down the barrel like the Reebok where all the other Mikens cracked going across the barrel.

As far as durability goes I'd have to say Dudley would have the edge. It really comes down I would think as to which bat fits your swing better.

Good luck!

Discussion: Adidas Melee Bat Problems

A little off topic but who sells the Melee 2. I still have 2 left of the original end loads. It is a really good bat and I wouldn't mind adding teying the new one. Any help would be appreciated.

Oh and back to the topic, a little marine adhesive to a loose knob does the trick. I had a knob come off the white and red Miken Max Load and used a small amount of marine epoxy did the trick. Never had the Knob come off again. That bat also was very good, just not very durable. Didn't get a season in before barrel cracked.

Discussion: Colin Kaepernick

Spin it how you want but who goes to any event player or fan and purposely sits during the national anthem? The other day Colin is wearing socks at practice with a pig wearing a police hat. Let me ask this, if he is at home at night and hears a couple of guys trying to break in that have guns, who's he going to call ?

As for which country do you have to stand for the national anthem, I'd guess Cuba also, wasn't that Colin wearing a Fidel shirt the other day ?

To most 9er fans, Colin has become a distraction that is way overpaid and could divide the locker room. I wouldn't be surprised to see the 9rs cut him later today and eat the 14 mil he is do this year.

Discussion: Dudley 2.0

Alan, which of the 3 bats were swinging? Let us know after more testing, which bat you prefer, the original ones or the Dudley 2's.

Also if you tried the Melee 2, which bat do you like more between the 2. I'm in the market for a bat and I'm torn between the Melee 2 EL and the 13 " Dudley. Any feedback you have wold be much appreciated as always.

Thanks, Tony

Discussion: Colin Kaepernick

So true L. Martin. The media keeps this story in the forefront. It currently dominates the sports news here, why......because they say controversy and negative sells. I don't know anyone who wants to hear anymore on the this story. Wait til the 9rs game on Thursday against the Chargers, every camera will be on Colin during the national anthem.

Discussion: Colin Kaepernick

I think in Colin's mind he thinks he's trying to help and bring more attention to the issue but is he ? There has to be many other avenues he could choose rather than the one he has chosen. It seems to be disrespectful to everyone who has put on a uniform and helped protect our country.

I don't think he is a POS either, I think he's just not very bright. He's shown that on the field. His passer rating has gone down almost 10 points a year the last 3 years. He's totally regressed as a qb because he can't process information quick enough. The 9rs have had some great qbs in the past ( Brodie, Tittle, Young and of course Montana ), Colin will never be mentioned in the same sentence as any of those guys. The guy no doubt has all the physical skills to be great, it's his head that gets in the way of him being a good qb. This has gotten way to much air time in the bay area. A year from now we will be saying " Colin who ".

Discussion: Little League World Series

I enjoy watching the games as well Dbax. Agreed on the calls, the strike zone seems huge at times. What gets me more is the strike zone in the majors. How is it some umpires have a low strike zone and some give the high strike while others expand the strike zone on the corners. My question is if these guys are the best at their profession, why don't they call balls and strikes as it is written in the rule book ?

Discussion: SSUSA Staff: Shaved Bats

Redwood City rec league tried providing bats about 10 years ago. It was summer league and they used different fields and at each field they supplied the same 3 bats, a 26 Oz ( don't recall which bat this was ) a 27 Oz Freak 98 and a 28 Oz Easton Synergy. You could use only these bats. This didn't last even to half the season due to all of the bats that were cracking. We ended up going back to using our own bats. I know this ended up costing the city thousands in replacement bats.

Discussion: SSUSA Staff: Shaved Bats

Shaved bats used by grown men over 50 ? I would have to agree with Benji4 on this. I find it hard to believe that there is an issue with this happening in senior softball, maybe I'm being naive but these bats are already so hot and not to mention they don't last as it is. To have a bat Shaved, how many swings could you get out of bat ? For what, to get an extra 10-20 feet. I would hope the penalty for using a " dirty bat " would be very stiff !I thought this was only an issue with the young guys.......

Discussion: Broken bat - coincidence or legit reason?

SOB, it's not your grip. There has been quite a few bats from various companies that have had issues with the knob coming off. If you have a receipt for the bat, you can try and get a replacement for it. Otherwise you can epoxy it with 2 part marine epoxy.

Discussion: Senior bats vs. 52/300 ball

I'd have to agree with Oz. Dirty bats have been a problem before the 52/300 ball have been the ball of choice by Rec leagues. The reason they went to the 52/300 ball was for player safety. A shaved bat and a 44/375 ball in the hands of a 20-30 year old can be downright dangerous.

Discussion: Wondering about your team name; especially the unusual ones.

Mulewhipper, one of your boys, Hoffman played a few years with us. I remember rushing back from a NCSSA tourney to catch our game and had a Ultra II sticking out of the bag and he was asking about it. I told him in another year he would be able to use it and at that time he says, " I'm not playing in that ". He had no idea the competitiveness that exists in senior softball. You can't get him off the field now.

Discussion: Wondering about your team name; especially the unusual ones.

We played on a Sunday ASA Rec league for almost 20 years on a team called " Sultans of Swat ". Our coach grew up in New York before moving to Calif. Needless to say he was a huge Yankee fan. The team stopped playing only a few years ago as guys were hitting 50 and started playing senior ball and we were having problems fielding a team on Sunday afternoons.
