Topic: Bats
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

Discussion: Softball Magazine's Senior Softball Camp, December 2-5

The softball magazine camps are first class all the way, and even though its next week, I think you may still sign up. 3 days of full instruction on offense, defense and conditioning. Lunch provided every day, demo bats from all the sponsors and a banquet where you receive a senior bat package. That alone covers most of the cost...and when you add in the instruction, its a priceless way to kickstart the new season. Alot of top senior pros like Steve Imlay, Davey Reed and Bobby Davis from Dudley and Bobby NYfong from Combat...Bruce Fairchild, George Robinson...Dennis Turner..just to nane a few. Looking forward to it.

Hitters will definately increase the power of the unwind and rotation, if they wind the hips during the stride and timing of the swing. 5 steps teach this simply and 4 great drills you can do to reinforce this. It actually cuts back lunging and helsp alot with tempo and timing.All shows are free, on youtube and can be accessed with descriptions off our site at wwww.sportstechnique.com

Discussion: Has anyone had L5 spinal fusion and returned to good playing form?

I've been suffering from spinal stenosis of L5 for 2 years now. Spasms, and feet numbness since June. I am scheduled for Dec. 17 laminectomy and fusion however, I keep reading nightmare stories and wonder if I should continue on where at least I am mobile and can stand the discomfort. Has anyone had successful fusion and returned to playing and hitting?
kennethvanbogaert@gmail.com is my email. thank you in advance.

Discussion: Favorite Baseball Movie

Im an hour from the Field of Dreams movie set...very pristine yet, and awesome. Informal, just show up and like kids in a playground...take your turn in the field and then hit. No admission, no one to tell you what to do..just go on the field and enjoy. Dyersville Iowa. They had Kostner and a bunch of celebs for a 25th anniversary game last year. Fantastic...just a small gift shop. A quarter century later, and people flock to it as foretold in the movie..
