Discussion: Best Wishes to Terry Hennessy

All the guys from High Desert Roadrunners wish you positive energy and prayer for healing. As I shared with you earlier, you will battle like a champion and be back on the fields with your buddies before you know it. There are a few of us that can relate to your challenge. Blessings to you Terry!

Discussion: Hitting from tee vs. hitting pitched ball

I use a G-Tee and have used them all with our batting cage at Worlds in 11'. All the rest broke from misguided bats hitting the tees.My tee easily fits in my bag and is collapsible.

I practice at different heights and on a field, I try to hit ropes versus long high fly balls.

I believe the repetitious motion in the body movement strengthens the rotation muscles and tissues.

I believe I am getting equal distance from a tee and from natural pitching. When using a tee, I am doing a similar method of preparing for a pitch. I look upward to the elevation of a pitch and look downward to the ball on the tee as I begin my swing and rotation.

This has been a great thread. Thanks to all who have participated in it.

Discussion: BAT REPAIR

I am willing to try some experimental repairs in my shop. I was a fiberglass and epoxy application professional in South Carolina for 13 years. Have been doing sailboard and surfboard repairs here locally.

If you want to ship a bat to me, I will attempt to repair it. Your choice.

Discussion: Tragic Accident and Respectful Request

Friends and Seniors,

On August 7th my nephew, Kamren Baldwin, flew to Montrose, CO from Escalon, CA to visit me and to participate in a house painting project for one of my clients. Kam's plan was to make a good amount of capital and return to CA to marry his sweetheart, Dominique Montez and raise her 4 kids. His plane landed at midnight and he got to our cabin at 1AM.

Early Saturday morning, he drove my diesel truck away from the cabin to meet me. We don't exactly know what happened but he drove off the asphalt and amidst a violent accident, Kam was ejected and killed. These past three weeks have been numbing to me and our family. Kam was 40, a godly and strong young man. I did not get to

My nephew left a fiancÚ and 4 great kids behind. All are devastated and without income. I have opened a trust account at Alpine Bank, Telluride, CO for the benefit of Dominique Montez, (970) 728-5050. I intend to deposit profits from bat sales that I do going forward to her account. In the event anyone who reads this feels led to assist Dominique and her children, please contact me or Alpine Bank in Telluride, CO. Be it known that any gift or donation, will be gratefully appreciated.

The pain of losing my nephew on my watch will never leave my heart, but we believe God had his hand in this. He works in ways that are beyond our understanding. We believe it was time for Kam to be with him.

Thanks,
Ed Andrews

Discussion: Dudley Lightning 12" barrel

I must unfortunately disagree with you Alan. I love the Dudley bat but the shipping of bats to those of us who have legitimately sent $ in advance has been unsatisfactory at best. I have personally lost numerous customers because the bats did NOT arrive when they were promised and that ticks me off to no end.

You and others may have different experiences.

Happy New Year.

Glad to hear you made it through the procedure and are on the mend Mike. I've been in the chilly San Juan Mountains surrounding Telluride snowmobiling and plowing snow so was not able to learn of your plight before now. Best wishes and get well soon. Happy New Year!

Discussion: Merry Christmas

On this special morning in the white snow covered mountains around Telluride, Colorado, I'd like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and would like to send well wishes to all those who I've played ball with, have played against and also to those umpires and tournament directors and staff. Last but certainly not least, I'd like to thank all of you who have worked with me over the years. It is at this special time of year that I especially think of you good folks out there.

Best,

Ed Andrews

Discussion: Ocala Florida Questions

Some of you have followed my trip from Colorado to Florida via Winter Worlds in Phoenix. I'm working on our house in Ocala, FLA doing repairs, installation, etc etc (and some red fishing in the Gulf). Can anyone give me some information where I might get some BP or some playing time in here. I can be reached at (970) 729-3145 cell or email ea@andrewsdev.com.

Really appreciate it.

Discussion: Florida Bound

Arrived in Ocala, Florida Monday. Temps reached 83 degrees. Tuesday clouded up and rains began around noon. Rained all day and into the night. This morning you could see your breath outside.

Don't swing composite bats under 65 degrees y'all.

Wishing all a Happy Thanksgiving. I look forward to enjoying time in Florida until I head back to Colorado. In the event you have questions regarding Reebok and/or Dudley, please contact me.

Discussion: Florida Bound

Driving through Houston on a Friday afternoon is absolutely crazy. Made 20 miles in 2 hours.

Saw an exotic wildlife ranch west of Kerrville and saw a spring buck near the fence. Was cool.

Couldn't believe how heavily populated it was along the border in El Paso. Saw the black fence between the border we normally see on tv.

Rain started east of San Antonio and was intense at times. Rain is serious and heavy in Tallahassee. Will get to Ocala in the morning. Ready to get out of the drivers seat.

I meant get in touch. Sorry.

Made it to San Antonio this evening.Staying on I-10. Covered a lot of ground since leaving Phoenix. Only problem so far is wind and tarp ripping apart along the way.

Have passed a lot of nice softball complexes. Hope to be in Florida by Sunday.

Maybe we can rep in touch when I get there. We drive from Phoenix after I play in W Worlds. Pulling the boat so will be a bit slower go than normal.

If I am living in N. Florida and have my snowbird card, am I qualified to play on a GA. team? Just thinking.

Discussion: Winter Nationals, any bat sellers there?

Winter Worlds in Phoenix is a Miken exclusive tournament. I will not be selling Dudleys or Reeboks there but will be playing. If you contact me before or afterward, I can ship one to you.
