Discussion: Is it too soon to compare the new Dudley Hot 14" vs the new Adidas Melee 2 - two piece?

Alan that's nice of you to do that however it wasn't my bat it was Joe's in Boca who you know very well. As I said you rep other bats which are fine so this wasn't anything of a personal nature. See you in FHC.

mck71 the Miken Ultra 2 Black balanced came in two versions- the white colored one was balanced and is the one being talked about being similar to the white 2 piece wicked bat now which isn't very good.

Nothing personal against Alan since a few other bats he reps are good but that white wicked is a log. I've hit it, seen a bunch of others hit it with anything from NIW to 300-400 hits and it's just not great at all.

Youngen the answer is yes that bat. All you need to know is look around and very few guys use that bat. It was a terrible bat however the only thing that matters is that it works for you. Good luck with it.

Mn you seem to know a good deal amount about the game so I will share this info and I am sure some will disagree however from strong observationals I an tell you that white 2 wicked is a log. It reminds me of the balanced white 2 piece bat miken put out a few years ago. Very mediocre pop and not much distance. The black wicked is very good however the white isn't.

Discussion: New Stote softball

Kudos to the new ball, it is much better in every way then the old ball. The balls fine in hot weather and really is a very good ball. Anyone who thinks this ball isn't good isn't realistic. The ball holds up well in the heat, lasts and is much better then the old ball.

Discussion: called out

Personally I have no issue one way or another with this however what I can't understand is batters going up to the plate's dirt and creating a huge hole. Why do some guys think it's okay to make a hole into nice flat ground? You don't ever see this with baseball and yet in softball guys go up there digging gopher holes- why??? Maybe I'm in the minority but hitting on a level surface is much better to hit on.It makes no sense some idiot who thinks he needs to dig a hole in the middle of the dirt. That's a rule I would love see implemented against guys who do that.

Discussion: TOC Florida

Yea about doing an Air BnB you may want to check the address and neighborhood before you book the place. Our team had a guy book a place this summer in Richmond that was so bad in the hood that we wouldn't have stayed there with M-16's and running chain saws. When we got to the area the guy actually said let's go in and check out the house first. We said it woudn't have mattered if there were naked cheerleaders in there with bags of $100 dollar bills, we weren't leaving our cars to go into this place! To this day we laugh at the whole thing and of course now we've nominated him as travel agent of the year....

Discussion: Thoughts and Prayers to Y'all Next

I was the coach of Roadhouse Blues last year and we played against you guys one tournament. Can't say I recall Wayne but all of you guys were very nice guys. Sorry to hear about your loss, the pleasures of this game are enhanced when you get to play with good people. Sincere condolences to the family and teammates of Wayne.

Discussion: New Ball

I will answer this question 100%- the ball is great in heat and humidity. The ball has been in use in FHC league for three months now and is a terrific ball. It goes well, holds up in the heat and humidity of Florida and is a quality ball. No one should be unhappy about the ball.

Discussion: Tournament Prizes

If someone has a bunch of 2017 Atlanta Falcon Superbowl championship gear they are donating to El Salvador or some other g-d forsaken place I have a spiffy 2016 Crabtown championship red hat with a crab on it that would match the shirts perfectly. I'm willing to give up that booty even though the memento is priceless...

It's like comparing a BMW vs a Mercedes- both top notch and about the same performance level so it would strictly be a preference decision.

G Man I play in the FHC too and I would say contact Mike Knowles the chairman of the association. He is a very knowledgeable guy and someone who is good at getting things done. Hopefully he can assist on looking into the fields here.

Discussion: 11 on defense

I'm not 70 but I would imagine no guy who's 70 plays ball and says to himself how satisfying to go 1-4 with 11 or more fielders out there. The enjoyment from the game comes from being successful and no one in their 70's or above is a lock down defensive player I would imagine so more guys would probably prefer to hit the ball for hits. The game shouldn't be I'm not as good anymore so that means I don't want anyone out here to be better then me. Go enjoy and realize that softball is a game of hitting and any defense is great but it's still hitting that most guys enjoy.

Discussion: 11 on defense

Why is there a sudden hatred of offense? It isn't as if many guys when they get older all of sudden start hitting the ball harder and in the gaps. This suggestion isn't a good one unless you suddenly stopped taking care of yourself and need to depend on making the game worse because you're not up to the challenge.

Not the worst tournament but the prize given if you win is a g-d awful red hat with a crab on it. Sorry but that is seriously bad

I am very happy to say that we played this weekend with the new Stote ball and it was great. It is very similar to the Tattoo and is a really good ball. Thanks to the director of FHC for switching to that ball, it was great.
