Discussion: Looking to play in Orlando Florida

Best way to find a team is to show up on Saturday mornings at Red Bug Lake park in Winter Springs. All the 50's players in the area show up as well as managers of the 50's teams. You will no doubt latch on to some team there. Keep in mind that this Upcoming Saturday, all the 50's are playing in Lakelans so there may not be many 50's there. Good luck

Probably the best way to put it is, you will feel bad Sunday morning when it's your last day, and you realize it's coming to a close. The comradarie you develop over three days is most of the value

Discussion: REPAIRING BROKEN BATS

Not sure this helps, but instead of repairing a bat do a little preventive. By that I mean before the bat ever gets to the point of breaking, have someone take end cap of and add a reinforcement layer inside. I have an OG Dudley 13" , 29oz which I think I have 4000 plus swings on it and it's still going strong. I took it to a bat specialist when the end cap came off . This was a common issue with the original Dudleys. When we took a look inside you could see the flaking and the inside just coming apart. I asked if it could be cleaned up and have a thin layer placed inside to strengthen it. HE said he could and 4000 plus swings later the Dudley is great. I use it ,mainly for BP as I now use the Dudley 12", 28 oz- an absolute game changing bat. Anyway that is my advice if you have a bat you really , really like. Just preserve it by doing a preventive. It has worked for me

Discussion: REPAIRING BROKEN BATS

Well today in Orlando I got the opportunity to get out on the field and put into action all the things I learned from Spring Training 2015; the flute grasp of the bat, staying still in the batters box, hands up, look at the part of the ball you want and take your swing. I kept hitting home run after home run. It felt great. Additionally I have my bands and three pound weights. I was amazed how sore I was the day after using those exercise tools. I have become a student of the game and it's paying off. Once again thanks to Alan and his staff!

I have to say the experience in Vero Beach this past weekend was a memorable experience. I woke up everyday at 430am to commute to Sebastian not only to play and get better but to be with the people who only a day earlier we're strangers.. Lynn and I are very much looking forward to not only next year but I am trying to convince Alan to put on another similar event in the Fall. Say after the World Series. I know Lynn and I would attend.
Thank you to Alan and his wonderful staff., not only for enriching my knowledge of the game but for enriching our lives!

Discussion: BEST ASA BAT

I am a Miken fan, and the best ASA bat that I have ever used is the Miken Triad Maxload ASA. I use a 34/28 and I have been crushing the ball with it; all types of balls. It is a two-piece and has an incredible trampoline effect!

Discussion: MIKEN TRIAD BLACKOUT SEHIOR BAT

Thx to all posts. Looking forward to getting my new 34/29 Ultra II. Playing in a FLHC SOFTBALL later on in June in West Palm Beach. Will have bat broken-in hopefully and not just broken.

Discussion: MIKEN TRIAD BLACKOUT SEHIOR BAT

Actually the bat feels tremendous in your hands; the handle, the weight28oz), the two pieces, etc. I changed the grip to the lizard skin making it feel even better. The performance is honestly no better than the same bat with the new ASA logo; I have both as I still play ASA. I can't say that it needs to be broken-in, as I have many, many cuts on it. It just doesn't have the same distance as the Ultra II. I liked the Ultra II so much I immediately bought one to be my game bat.

Discussion: MIKEN TRIAD BLACKOUT SEHIOR BAT

I bought my Blackout back in February and I have hit it since in tournaments and in practice. In my opinion it is as broken in as its going to get and still their is little difference if any the my Miken Triad Maxload ASA. In the interim I have swung other bats that teamates have let me use and have been truly impressed. The number one being the Miken UltraII and to a lesser extent with Miken Ultra II Maxload. Both are superior bats and are hands down better than the Blackout. My three month warranty just expired in May 2014 and have already ordered my own UltraII; 34/29. Don't get me wrong , its a nice bat but its NO Ultra II. If I could sell it I would, but after 3 months it would be too much of a loss.
