Discussion: How Many Knob Cuffs??

We had a swing makeover show on it last year, and on a thread here, someone on SSUSA came on as I recall and said it was legal for SSUSA. I have used 2, one of each hand, the past 5 years in SSUSA regionals and worlds as well as local ASA play, and never had it questioned by an ump.

Discussion: Larry Carter Signature Senior Bat Review and Interview

DeMarini has come out with an excellent midload senior bat that has top end peformance and so far has very good durability. Its namesake is Larry Carter...and this also contains a short interview and swings from the great Larry Carter. Its the best DeMarini bat to come out in my opinion, in the last few years for most rec guys who don't want an overwhelming endload. Alot of great senior bats out there, and this one is one of the best.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H_hhWczk_g0

Many athletes need to put most of the mental focus on hip rotation, in order to get the hips to lead the swing. This creates good tempo, timing, body angle, weight transfer and finally explosion. Hip rotation is explained with a few simple drills to physically learn to let the hips lead the swing. www.sportstechnique.com Softball Hitting Swing Makeover #39

Discussion: Video on the 2015 Senior Demarini One El

Lefty, yeah, while most advanced players start where they want, they always end up with hands pulled back as the front foot hits. For many, to start with hands back helps simplify this. Im trying to come back from major back surgery and it is helping me get hands back more..it was a struggle trying to be consistent when I couldnt rotate well but now taking time to relearn how to use hips, its a slow process..I tip my hat to those with joint replacements or permanent injuries who learn to adjust so well.

Discussion: POWER HITTERS

Many great power hitters like Bruce,Steve,Crusher.. constantly work on their game and improve as they age, which is amazing. The best part is with the internet, you have so much free information, you don't have to pay anything to improve. Most athletes video their swings and compare it to great swings and by working with teammates and sifting thru internet info...improve power immensely and some don't even start until after retirement.
Aside from technique, Strength retention thru training and nutrition is a trend that has really improved power in seniors along with a selection of bats that tailor all hitters desires. The camps I've attended seem to have a motivated group and very good success for the minority that attend those.

Discussion: Your opinion on best Senior Bat

For alot of the senior bats I thinks its a trade off for durability vs. having premium performance. Some of the real durable senior bats have very good performance, but not great. I think just a few of the senior bats have the greatest top level performance and the Demarini Senior One Endload and new Juggy Endload are two of them. You break them in and then they are gamers only. I personally like that approach and use asa warranty bats for bp. Or a senior can use one model senior for bp and another for games to balance the spending and be able to use a senior stick in cold or long term bp. JMO..some great choices in todays market for sure.

Discussion: The Lead Wrist may be Blocking a Powerful Swing. Drills & Fixes Swing Makeover #37


The 2nd of the 4 part series on cutting the ball. This focuses on the role of the lead wrist and how it often doesn't release in time, causing a loopy swing, and bat head drop and drag. Pro's demonstrate and we introduce a drill package to fix the flaw and cut thru the part of the ball we want to attack. All shows can be accessed off our website at www.sportstechnique.com Shows are free.

Bruce, did you think that was just some sexy old timer on there haha. You have one of the best swings in the game, pretty awesome...and we will keep using it. Wayne, good point, but many comments end up being negative or attack guys on the video...we prefer to offer the show for free, and whether people think its right or wrong, its an objective view of mechanics from our research.

Discussion: 2015 Softball Magazine Senior Camp

It was a great time and amazing to see how hard the older (50 to 77) athletes worked on both offense, defense and health. Great work ethic and improvement. Kudos to softball magazine for running a first class event. thank you to Steve Imlay, Dennis Turner, Bruce Fairchild, and Victor Quinton for helping me with the presentations from Sportstechniques Swing makeover program. Also heard a ton of great comments from the campers on the help they received from all the instructors and Jim Ramsey and Harry..and all that Rusty47 mentioned. Truly a group effort. Congrats to Ron Mccoy for winning a stacked homerun field including Bruce Fairchild..and 68 year old Dennis Lynch for the basehit title...pitching in the wind was tough but part of the game. Softball Magazine has alot of new things already in the works for 2016! The bat swap at the end was fun chaos..haha.Bogie
