In the Milwaukee/Waukesha area we have day leagues that play on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Monday, Wednesday we play at New Berlin VFW post, starting around 9am. If you live in the area you might want to come out and take a look, we could hook you up.

Discussion: George's Dilemma

Boots on the ground January 2, 1972. TAD orders from the 7th Fleet to Binh Thuy Vietnam, on the Bassac river, Mekong Delta to the Delta Naval Advisory Unit. I was a RM3, radiomen were in short supply in-country and I was assigned to 2 PBR's in support of a small SEAL Team. A year earlier the regular Brown Water Navy turned over all boats and supplies to the South Vietnam Navy. Now I was an adviser, with no experience.

It was early February morning, we were having breakfast when the base came under attack. The enemy was lobbing motors into the base, with some small arms fire at the wire. As we ran out of the mess hall, a mess cook, a solid 6' 225 lb (running back) ran over an Army Major and just flattened him. Dislocated the Majors shoulder and broke 2 ribs. Now this Major was from Saigon supply headquarters, and wanted some retribution. The mess cook, an e-3, was given 30 days of latrine duty. That meant SBD (Sh*t Burning Detail). On his second day he did not check the wind conditions, yup it was blowing into the base. Most of the base just stunk. The base commander was not a happy camper at this time and busted the guy to e-1 and 2 weeks pay, with another 30 days at SBD.

Discussion: Milwaukee Classic - Rained Out

Tourny turned into a 1 day event for the 65/70/75/80's on Friday. Played 45 min. games. 1 pitch, bat 2 innings, defense 2 for the first 4 innings, rest of game was standard rotation. I liked the 1 pitch 2 innings offense, moved the games along. Only issue, you would be playing 5 games in 1 day.

Discussion: DUDLEY 2019 LIGHTNING HOTW

Received my DudleyW 14" 25oz bat today. Being in the upper Midwest we hit indoors. Temp around 70 degrees. I'm 67, 6'1" 195lbs. Play in 65AAA. I have warning track power, many 1-2 hoppers off the 300' fence. Took about 50 hard swings, no problem, NO cracks. If anybody is looking at serial #'s my bat #1612180051. Ball really jumps off the bat after a few swings. Going to hit next week also.

Is the 2019 Miken Johnny Bailey just a 12 inch version of your Wicked Pro XL? Or are there other items to consider ?

Discussion: New Stote softball

Played 3 more games with the new ball, we also are playing in Naples 65 AAA. On first touch of the ball, the cover only, is a little spongie, not has hard as the last years Stote. The ball holds up to the humidity. We hit the fence a couple of times, and in the late innings. Its just the cover that feels softer. The core of the ball never changed. We are still playing tomorrow, so now all of our balls are used so we can see after a few more games how the ball holds up. Since I play infield and outfield I did not notice more knucklers, bad hops or weird things.

Discussion: New Stote softball

Playing in Ft. Myer's with the new ball. Temps upper 80's, 90% humid, 70 dew. NOT impressed with it over 7 innings. Ball does not carry very well, cover seems to get a little loose over 7 innings. Played 2 games on Tuesday, same thing in both games. We will see in todays games. looks like 3 games today.

Discussion: survey

As a pitcher the most wasted time I see is when a batter is trying to hit the left or right field foul lines and the ball goes foul. Now, the outfielder needs to chase the "game ball" down, then we need to wait till the outfielder needs to get back into position. Remember when the ball goes foul that outfielder is not running at 100% to chase it down and get back into position. With 0-0 count the batter has 2 chances to hit the lines, if he misses 2 times the batter next will hit up the middle, watch out pitchers. With a 1-1 count batters might take 1 try at the lines, but most batters like to take a strike before they swing.

Discussion: Fields at Shadow Rock

Played there this weekend 60AAA, all infields are dirt, well groomed. Fields #3 and #4 have turf outfields in very good shape.
Fields #1 and #2, outfields are still grass, somewhat worn and rutted.

Discussion: MILWAUKEE CLASSIC 5/21

I had the game after yours, we even had the third base side you were on. True Grit on your part limping, hopping and crawling to 3rd. Our team first thought hamstring. After they carried you off we knew it was something more.
Hope ever thing heals up, enjoy the summer vacation.
