Discussion: 80 year old beginner, improves greatly with Chair Drills for developing a throwing Bat Snap #202

Jim's exit speeds were 27 to 32 mph, but once he started using a chair drill to use rotation to throw hands at the point of impact, he increased up to 56mph and hit some balls over 200 feet. Amazing turnaround for a beginner to softball. swing makeover #202

Discussion: Stop Swinging UP! Handpath DOWN to the Point of Contact creates a more level cutting ProStyle Swing 192

Woldke, Blackburn & Connell show great examples of handpath going to the ball and just letting the bat head whip to impact on its own. If the rotation drives top hand past bottom hand, a powerful snap is achieved and you can strike the middle or bottom half of the ball with great accuracy, maximum exit velocity and full confidence.

Discussion: major plus

Having played major plus roughly half of the time ive played SSUSA, I personally like the idea of the M+ division, and if someone is good enough to have a dynasty, so be it. It should be big boy softball...and good for the teams that can dominate it. My only suggestion, as I reach 68 years next year, is that with the fewer number of teams 65 and older, I think once we reach that age, with less teams overall, a consideration to simply have a AA, AAA and open major..for 3 divisions instead of 4. If there are 8 to 10 teams in open major, its alot harder for the best teams to win against 10 teams vs 3, and its alot more fun to play against a larger pool group. If you have won worlds or placed high enough in SSUSA worlds, consider it an elite group your in and you have to beat the best to win this division. Just my opinion, and appreciate the pros and cons from the SSUSA standpoint..I feel they always doing what they feel is best for all player levels...and we don't always have the total facts to understand their stance. 3 levels instead of 4 would help balanced the overall lack of teams as we sadly age.
