Discussion: MESSAGE BOARD POST REMOVED (and Why)

SSUSA - I would like to recommend to you at this time to contact Chuck Sharkey and have him fill you in on his details ....... My story is bullet proof

Joey 525i - I dont think there is any contact tracing going on for the simple reason of denial at VB . Many of the players and there families had no idea until Sunday while only a few teams were left.

SSUSA Staff,

I just read your e mail and I thought I put enough information that it would not be taken down . If you want me to post my name I will and if you want to see the e mails and the names of the 2 e mails and there phone numbers I will be that also .....I will be more then gladly to show ssusa anything I have This is not a joke. How dare Chuck Sharkey come into this complex with little regard for anyone well-being. There are many people who are ballistic over this ....... This is not a dig on SSUSA it shows why we all enjoy playing softball with your organization. This also clearly shows the recless bahavior of ISSA and others at players expense . So tell me exactly what you want so the story can be re-posted . Thanks

Mr. Wolf , Thanks for your help. I rushed to buy the Suncoast bat and I normally swing a 27/28oz but this Red Suncoast is a very heavy 27.5 and it feels very heavy in the middle of the bat Its not for me but I will try the 25.5 at some point. I do like the THIN handle !

Bought the new suncoast red 27.5 end load and the bat feels really heavy now . Then someone let me just swing 26.5 and it still felt heavy. I think the 25.5 would be the way to go for me . I normally swing a 27 . Anyone feel the bat feels heavy ?

aka southpaw- My son who is 10 can break this bat on 10 swings. The bat was a disaster from the very beginning and Dudley played the wait and see game at everyone expense . Go get yourself a new miken or suncoast bat as they are the bats to own right now !

Discussion: DUDLEY 2019 LIGHTNING HOTW

OMG..Its All About Money !!!

Whats that bullshit smell ? Oh its the dump behind the fields your hitting on. LOL

After reviewing all 3 of your Youtube videos at your test facility and after 100 hits on only 1 Dudley Hot 14 bat you tested, you now hear a RATTLE. Hmm You also know for sure its the glue from the cap without removing the cap ? OMG !!! For the guys who know softball bats we all know what that rattle indicates I think :>))

Carlos, I am only a softball player just like most of the men and women on this site. Most of us find $230.00 net after taxes a lot of money especially when we would have to buy another bat because of the NO WARRANTY Policy ! We all have been burned before at the hands of big companies who play jugde and jury.
Finally, Bullshit back to you...The bat I cracked was still in the wrapper and never altered. As I knew there would be doubters like yourself I took pictures. Give me your e mail address and I will send you or anyone else all the pictures so you can post them for everyone to see . You have also insulted RIGHTRJ1 and OLDSCHOOL13 about possibly altering there bats because they reported bat cracks . SHAMFUL! I ask you who is DOCJOEL48 ? Because this guy must be drinking the cool aid your serving at your testing facility ....lol
Have a great day .

Doc.Joe48

I hate to be so negative but the two bats I hit with were cracks and NOT surface cracks.

In Rightrj1 post he cracked his bat on the 13th swing....Now thats really confirms a bigger problem in my opinion with the production / material used in theses bats.

Discussion: New Dudley

Diesel Dan,

You mean its what Dudley going to do? ....The bats are made in China with NO WARRANTY. Its called RECALL !!! Just in one shippment 8 CRACKED bats in 2 days. Good luck trying to get your money back from some small town dealer . They needed to do a compression test on every bat and record it with the bats serial number just like Miken does and the ones that fail never make it past the front door.This process was clearly not done with the Dudley Hot bats and if it was something is seriously Not right. This bat story almost sounds like the old Reebok Barrage bat.

Discussion: New Dudley

MAJOR PROBLEM : Today I was asked to help break in a brand new Dudley Hot 14 bat. After 25 swings the bat CRACKED. ( BAT WAS STILL IN WRAPPER ) I also took pictures of everything I am telling you. Theses bats are a big problem. So in this production there are now at least 8 bats less then 50 swings that have cracked already from Alan Tanner sales. My advise would be to have Dudley recall all theses bats and fix the issue before the problem gets any bigger. Hope this helps everyone and would love to hear anyone else with the same issues.

Early Warning : We hit with the new Dudley HOT bats today 12 & 14. After 70 hits on the 12 and fresh out of the wrapper it CRACKED . The 14 Hot had with only 40 hits and was fine so far......The 12 Hot and the 14 Hot had no problem hitting the ball 300 ft. plus especially the 12 put you also have to remember the 12 had a crack . I believe the bats will be a warranty issue going forward .

Discussion: TOC TOURNAMENT AND SPRING NATIONALS ETC HELD IN AUBURNDALE POKE COUNTY FLORIDA

G man again ...... I have enclosed for your review one new softball complex in Seminole County Florida ,which is only a few miles from the Auto Train and just off of I-4 and 95, This way you can see what I was speaking about in reference to new Softball Complexes . Let me also say I am not suggesting this complex to play in , I am only showing you whats out there for all of us and how great theses new Softball Complexes are now. "Boombah Sports Complex " at Seminole County.

Discussion: TOC TOURNAMENT AND SPRING NATIONALS ETC HELD IN AUBURNDALE POKE COUNTY FLORIDA

Its G man here again and yes I am sorry but my post should have read POLK County but if you make an error after you post something on this site you cannot edit. Yikes !!!

The fields I was referring to were the AUBURNDALE Fields , honestly I have read everyone comments and fully hear all of you but in life you get what you pay for and this complex like most older complexs in Polk county are being poorly maintained.

Its now time the silent majority speaks up about the places and conditions of softball complexes being selected for play. In conversations I have had with other players it was my feeling teams would pay more for great fields and locations .
It is also my understanding that POLK County gave Senior Softball USA $100,000.00 for 10 years to play in POLK County and thats why we are stuck with ridiculous conversations about broken down complexes in 2018 . It would have been great if there was some kind of an out clause if Softball Complexes were not keep in pristine conditions.

Finally, For all softball players who don't live in Florida and enjoy coming here to play balll and enjoy the weather and all that Florida has to offer for themselves and especially their families there are many newly built softball complexes all over the state to enjoy without all this back and forth. So now its up to ALL of you to speak up and be heard or this all will become another moot issue like posting scores in a timely manner . Go Yankees :>))

Discussion: TOC TOURNAMENT AND SPRING NATIONALS ETC HELD IN AUBURNDALE POKE COUNTY FLORIDA

I am writing this to everyone in Senior Softball as most of us dont get opportunity to play in Auburndale. Florida unless its the TOC or Spring Nationals or some other tournament.

We just played a weekend of Florida Half Century Softball at a complex that is so poorly maintained that no one especially members of Senior Softball who pay lots of money should put up with this run down complex any more / or EVER.

The grounds keeper who use to try and keep the fields in good shape has retired and the attitude of poke county employees is so hostile that its time to find a pristine complex for all of us to enjoy as ther are many in the state of florida now.

We were told this weekend by Poke county employeees that if we ever go back on to those empty soccer fields again to hit before the games we are going to have you arrested. OMG . I think when he told us that foam was coming out of his mouth !!! but honestly what does this complex think we are going to do hit in the parking lot with a field of snakes and rats.

To make matters worse they even locked the gates so you could not drive behind the fields and I am sure they were exhausted from performing that simple exercise.

With the good old boys just hanging in there shed watching the grass grow the infields where all in need of mouth to mouth and were in such poor shape with grass growing throughout and the outfields all over grown. I am not sure what was worse the grass or ALL the aunt mounds all over the out fields. One of the players was laying down on the grass by the bathrooms and was attacked by a bunch of wasps. I can't make this crap up !!!

BTW , Before I foget The batters box had holes deeper then 5 inches and about 2 feet wide so when you batted you stood in this huge hole and if you were 6 ft your now 5.5 Do you think after every game those lazy employees came out to correct the holes or smooth out the infield not a chance in hell. You should all get the idea by now. This place is a first class dump and its time for senior softball to do something and move on to better pastures..... I hope you all understand that enough is enough after all theses years one story after another . Lets try the Disney Complex maybe or try anything but this place ...Hey its only money . Thanks for hearing me vent . G man

Gary, I rarely write on this site but after I read your post I had to respond. You have one hell of a nerve to make a statement about Alan Tanner bordering criminal over the sale of a softball bat . All great hitters will tell you its not the bat its the batter. Then you are soliciting to buy anyone used wicked bat.......Really ?? Here is a little advise for you today......try and work on your spelling :>)) then work on your hitting and finally I will buy all 3 of your bats for 50.00 each........So please inform on this site if we have a deal so everyone can see if you are truthful and honest about this bat.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:

THIS IS RIDICULOUS THAT IN 2017 WITH AN ORGANIZATION WHICH IS SO BIG AND GROWING EVERY DAY WE CANT GET SCORES !!!

SO HERE IS WHAT I WILL PUT OUT FOR DISCUSSION TO EVERYONE .....KISS KEEP IT SIMPLE STUDIED

THERE IS A FREE APP. CALLED TEAM APP....ITS A GREEN T LOGO HERE IS WHAT HAPPENS TO MAKE THIS HELPFUL

TEAM APP WILL LIST EVERY TOURNAMENT AND GAME BEING PLAYED ALONG WITH A ROSTER OF EVERY TEAM ......SO AT THE END OF EVERY GAME THE 2 MANAGES SIGN A CARD AGREEING ON THE FINAL SCORE AND THEN TEXT OR E MAIL IT TO TEAM APP AND THE SCORES ARE POSTED IMMEDIATELY .........I AM SURE THIS WOULD MAKE LOTS OF PEOPLE HAPPY AND IT WOULD COST NOTHING ......WHAT A DEAL !!!

SO HOW ABOUT THIS SIMPLE IDEA FOR ALL OF US SIMPLE SOFTBALL PLAYERS WHO ARE VERY FRUSTRATED WITH WHATS GOING ON WITH NOT POSTING SCORES.....THANKS G
