Discussion: New Dudley

how do you get a shipment of these bats but get no 28s? I'm very disappointed. I messed with direct sports for 2 months with nothing to show for it then I take your word that you get your bats today and will ship me one. then I'm told that you didn't get any 28s and ill have to wait on Dudley to ship me one. very disappointing. whether I get it or not I'm done with Dudley. I've got an Adidas and I can't imagine a bat being any hotter than it is. now my wife texts you and says please tell me the bat will be delivered by Wednesday and your response is ILL CANCEL YOUR ORDER.very disappointing

Discussion: 2018 1and 2 piece Hyper Z endload

Tremor is right. I have a red one piece 28oz The heaviest endload ive ever felt. It took some getting used to but when i did the balls just keep flying. That endload just drives the ball. I went from doubting my decision to buy the bat to swinging nothing else. It will be stiff at first just dont give up on it.. Make up your mind that you are going to swing it and do it. Ive hit some tape measure shots with it. Probably not a base hitters bat because of the endload. The best part? $80

Discussion: New Dudley

I also pre ordered from Direct over a month ago. I was expecting it to arrive this week and just happened to be on their website and saw they changed the ship date from Jan 15 to Feb 15. Now you say the end of Feb? Dudley may be forcing me to swing something else.

Discussion: Bordering State Rule

If the country is divided by regions why is there a bordering state rule for forming teams instead of making all players on the same team come from the same region?

Discussion: 2019 hyper z

Any louisville slugger reps out there? Ive been swinging the 2018 one piece hyper z. The red one. 28oz very endloaded. My question is will the 2019 two piece have the same extreme endload? I love this bat. Took some getting used to the weight but it just drives the ball.

Discussion: enforcing the rules

Started watching a game on youtube.First batter walks to the plate and deliberately rubs out the front line of the batters box. Umpire calls him out. Needless to say this caused a delay in the game. A needless delay. The umpire did his job. Was the batter or his team happy? No. Irrelevant. The umpire did his job. Hats off to the umps that know the rules and enforce the rules. ALL THE RULES.

Discussion: New Worth Wicked Pro XL Signature Series

What's the difference between your signature bat and the Jason Kendricks freak? I loved the one piece wicked but it blew up on me. I then started using the Kendricks and didnt think there was any comparison. The freak was super stiff and didnt sound like a senior bat. It took hundreds of swings to start getting that good sound and performance i was used to from a senior bat. I will probably wind up with another wicked but i'm a little hesitant to get another two piece bat

Discussion: Pitchers Mask

as a pitcher that has been hit in the face i highly recommend wearing a helmet of some sort. i have no problem with vision in a helmet. id gladly sacrifice a minute amount of side vision for more protection. just remember it only takes one ball to do some serious damage. cover up

Discussion: New Anniversary Freak

I hit with my new Jason Kendrick Freak for the first time yesterday.It was very hot and humid. Put about 50 swings on it with a variety of balls. Some 52 cor socks some GSL gold dots and some thunder advanced and two bullets.This bat did not like the 52's but neither do I so who cares.The GSL balls did not work well either.For the first 15-20 swings i was thinking i had made a big mistake getting this bat.The barrel felt extremely stiff for a senior bat and the sound is completely different from my dudlys addidas worth or even my freak platinum from last year.I had a hyper z three years ago and that is the sound this freak makes.Kinda metallic.Not the "crack" i like.Then i hit the first bomb!Wow!"I liked that",I said.I asked the pitcher what kind of ball. U-trip gold dot he said.Only one in the bag.Then we got to the thunder advanced.Boom!Boom!Boom!A couple of Bullets? See ya!No doubt with another 150+ swings this bat will be as hot as my other bats.I had no problem with the end load.Very controllable.Hit liners to center when i wanted.I heard last years model swung heavy.I did not feel that.

Brickyard was first tournament of the year for me. I loved the 1-1 starting count. I hated the $3 admission.

Discussion: Get rid of the 1-1 count

anyone ever play in a one pitch tournament? sure you have. scoring is crazy because everyone is swinging.the pitcher doesnt want to walk anyone so you get better pitches to hit.i didnt buy a $200 walking stick. SWING AWAY

Discussion: more defense please

When are senior softball and all other forms of slow pitch going to get with the times? When are you going to allow 11 players on defense? its ridiculous to watch a team hit at a pitcher over and over until the pitcher finally gets hit and the clowns doing the hitting use the excuse "its the biggest hole on the field" or "we're out of home runs" or "i had 2 strikes" or my favorite "i wasn't trying to hit you" B! S! So play a five man you say. B!S! Seniors barely cover the outfield with 4 let alone 3 and a 4 man infield is no excuse for hitting back at the pitcher.Theres nothing wrong with adding some defense to the game and a miniscule amount of protection for the pitcher. please dont get on here and say "I dont think people intentionally hit at pitchers" BS! I watched a major+ team repeatedly hit at AAA pitchers this weekend hitting one i know for sure. Very low class dont care what anyone says.

Discussion: what is the call

i never would have known that the catcher cannot tag a runner coming to score. im glad i read this or i may have looked pretty silly at some point. 2 years late or not lol im still new to the senior game but i love the rules. other associations could improve their game with a lot of the senior rules

Discussion: 1-1 count and new ball

the worst thing about the 1-1 in younger ball is the umpire.if he makes a bad strike call you are pretty much screwed but with the strike mat which i absolutely love, and courtesy foul id think there would be no problem.

Discussion: WHY SO RESTRICTIVE

This is not to be taken as critical. I love the game as it is.Just thinking. Why do we need home run limits AND a runs per inning rule? I love the runs per inning rule.I've never been a fan of home run limits in any brand of softball.As a pitcher i've always preferred pitching against teams that like to hit home runs.You tend to get a lot more fly balls.When the home runs are gone i tend to get a little nervous, if you know what i mean.As a hitter i get a rush every time i hit the ball over the fence.The game is supposed to be fun so why limit the fun. It just seems like the runs per inning rule takes care of keeping the games competitive.A few years ago i read an article about THE WORLDS LARGEST SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT.I think it was held in Virginia or Maryland each year.At the time there were no home run limits on any class but there was a maximum number of runs you could score each game which was also broken down to a max number you could have at the end of each inning.plus any runs you didn't score in one inning carried over to the next.So if your class was allotted 15 runs per game you would be allowed to score 3 in the first inning.by the end of the next inning you were allowed to have scored a total of 5.The good thing was if you only scored 2 in the first you could still finish the second with 5.The man in charge made a good point.Any team can stop hitting home runs but if you want to win you have to keep scoring.Teams that can score 20+ every game are more likely to play at a classification that allows them to and so on and so on.Example:My league allows 5 home runs per game the rest outs.We played a game where the other team hit all 5 dingers but only scored 11 runs. We beat them and didn't hit any home runs.Did being able to hit bombs mean they were a better team? In the state tournament everyone was keeping up with the power teams. Who won?A team that never hit the ball over the fence but wore you out with single after single.SO BOMBS AWAY!
