Appreciate those kind words Mike. Haven't seen you in some time. Hope you are well. Just got back from Phnx. Hit with Steve Imlay, Mark Barnes and Eddie Kahle on Wednesday. Hope to see you somewhere soon.

Discussion: Rocky Mountain Championships

I wanted to share my thanks to all the folks who visited our Adidas tent at the Aurora Rocky Mountain Championships. It was great to see old friends, old teammates and to interact with the SSUSA staff. It was a fun tournament with good weather, a great facility, friendly park staff and some excellent talent showed up to compete.

A special thanks to Terry, Don, Doug, Tom, George and Fran. You folks were on top of every aspect of the operation and you truly work hard to make a tournament a success.

A lot of folks had questions about our bats, travel bags and hitting tees among others so do not hesitate to call me with questions and requests. I will happily respond. See you in Vegas!

Discussion: Bruce Campion

I recently learned at the Rocky Mountain Championships in Aurora that our friend and teammate, Bruce Campion from the Salt Lake area, had passed. Bruce had battled cancer for a long period of time and tragically lost his battle.

I played with Bruce on the Utah Vets and he was one of finest men I've ever played ball with. He was a solid ball player and a genuine quality individual. It was an honor to know Bruce and to have played with him. We lost the championship game in the Worlds to Top Gun after playing 14 games.

I will miss him and if you knew Bruce and/or played with him, jump in here and speak your memories of this good man!

Topic: Bats
Discussion: Lighter bat weight

I've been hitting a 26 balanced, a 26 end load and a 25 end load "Melee 2" off my tee in the high elevations for a few weeks now. Currently, I am using the 25EL as my go to and like it a lot. Having a smaller frame/build, my shots to the outfield are giving an opportunity to stretch singles into doubles. Home runs for me are not an option anymore but the ball comes off the Adidas "Melee 2" as quick as any other bat I've used. If you have questions for me, let me know. Most of you know how I can be reached.

Discussion: Batting tee

I use mine all the time and I am a pre rotator cuff patient. I find it helps me with better mechanics and I might add I am not a HR hitter so hitting the holes and flat shots are a must in my view.

Bill, I have played at Huntsman Games with Sr. Canuck 3 years and you would truly enjoy playing with these guys in October. BUT you gotta have a sense of humor with them, eh.

Also the NM Roadrunners 65M are building and need a a 3b and/or outfielder. Good guys, worth contacting them. Contact Ronne Mercer,

Discussion: 2016 melee

I believe the Dudley is a very good bat. I also believe that the Melee 2 may be better for distance once you break it in and get the swing feel down. The swing feel of these bats is different. Some players may not like what they feel in the beginning with the Melee 2 and frankly, that was the case with me. Friends told me to stay with it and to relax my swing which was hard for me to do at first but I stayed with it and am very glad I did.

Thanks,
Ed

Regarding the break in period, I have been testing the Adidas Melee 2 in the mountains of Colorado at 8,750 feet in temperatures of 45-65 degrees. I have been testing a 26 balanced and a 26 end load.

At first, I found it a bit difficult to place the ball where I wanted it to go and I could not really get the swing down. As I hit more balls off the tee, both bats showed more liveliness and I began adjusting to the different feel of the swing.

I would suggest that you hit the bat model of choice at least 100-200 times before going at it in a game and you will see that the bat gets better with time.

Obviously the big guys can crush a ball with anything, but you base hitters and older players will appreciate the flex and the trampoline effect off this bat.

Thanks for the opportunity to share this updated info with you.

Capt Kirk, I tested the 25EL Adidas this week. I dropped down from a 27B Adidas. In my particular case, I was hitting ahead of the ball and hitting foul but hard shots. I plan to hit 80 balls today off a tee with my 27B. If you find that you are hitting ahead of the ball try moving up in the box a bit and adjust your swing. I have to be more patient and you may have to be as well. It will be worth it.

Discussion: Achilles Tendon Soreness

Thanks to all for your responses. I will try all the suggestions because I play outfield and I still do a significant amount of running. Have been wearing the Tanel mid range cleats. I have orthopedics back in Colorado but do not have them here in Florida.
Thanks to all,

Discussion: Achilles Tendon Soreness

I've been playing a lot of ball over the winter and I'm experiencing sore achilles tendons. I know there is no tear and my speed has not been hindered but the soreness is aggravating to me and I'd like to resolve this issue.

Ideas and thoughts are appreciated.
