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..

'
As amazing an athlete as I have ever seen, 80 Rudy went from hitting 250' to 340' by working on his rotation and doing 250 perfect snaps a day. 5'9 174, and 80 years old, he truly is an inspiration to every hitter. Singles became topspin line drives that he works to place into the gaps.
Drills to develop this and the cutoff bat to promote good practice are introduced. Swing Makeover #33. www.sportstechnique.com

Discussion: "Timing & Power Slumps? Balance Rotation and BatHead Snap" Swing Makeover #31

While we know the hips lead the swing, working the Hip Rotation and Drive and Extension of the Hands and Bathead snap, must be in balance to hit properly.

Discussion: Hitting from tee vs. hitting pitched ball

Thanks Bud...I would add that a lot of the great hitters I see really build up muscle memory and strength from tee work. Imlay has long power off the tee from all his reps on it...The only problem I see with tee work, is to make sure you use your tested game mechanics on it. I've gotten in a bad habit of sometimes experimenting with changes in technique on it..and have actually improved tee hitting performance over my game swing..but when I go to a live game..I've had that blow up in my face. Because with no timing or spacing issues on the tee, you can get away with bad mechanics that do well off the tee, but fail vs. live pitching. A hitter has to closely follow what works well vs. live. Gtee is what we use and pretty sweet.

Discussion: Hitting from tee vs. hitting pitched ball

Gary,
as you stride, your body will lower some, so the ball will end up a couple inches higher at impact than the actual tee setting...good deal on tee, btw
I see older guys in the mid 70s or older often hit further off the tee, but agree that most hit further off live pitching. I think Bruce is pretty close in his analysis.

Discussion: WOODLAWN HITTING CLUB?

Dave Pops North's email is woodlawnone1@verizon.net He can fill you in..they use a mix of 44 375 with some evil 2 color bp balls. Very few high compression balls...they are bat conscious. 50 pitch guarantee then a fun breakfast and bs afterwards. Mostly seniors. Dave will look at your swing for you if you ask...and offer advice from a Hall of Famer and one of the best power hitters ever in that area. He's 76 now, but often pitches 400 balls at the club and can still hit it great when his legs feel ok.
