Discussion: Taping of bat handle.

I guess I have been in violation for years. I suppose I will have to quit writing on the bat, "this is the sweet spot, hit here" or the the one on the handle "guaranteed out if you hit it here".

Discussion: Total Knee Replacement

8 weeks in. 0 degree on passive straight leg, 110 degrees on passive range of motion. Gym today, 30 minutes bike, 6.9 miles at level 8. Getting stronger everyday, put a bat in my hand and took a batting stance. Could feel just how much further I have to go before I can drive off the back leg. Knowing how much stronger I am today than anytime in the past 3 years, I can say for a fact that I am blessed to have been able to play before this surgery. I know how far I have come in 8 weeks and if I make the type of progress I feel confident that I can play in March and be effective. To what extent only time will tell.

On a more personal note, regardless of whether I will ever be a quality ball player again, my quality of life has made all of this worth it. For those considering surgery investigate, educate and then don't hesitate.

Ending 2016 with my spirit fulfilled, my mind right, my body healing and happy. The LORD has blessed me far more than I deserve, but certainly no less than his promise to all. Itching to hit, but still 4 weeks away. I have lost 15 lbs, but then again proverbial drop in the bucket. Honey is there any fudge left????

Very possible that might be true, but it does not make what I said not true.
Stote ball is a good ball when the weather conditions are not adverse.

Not as good as I once was and maybe not as good once as I ever was.

Stote is a sock in temperatures above 90 and especially in Sacramento. The teams I have played on see their HR production drop 75-80 percent when we use the Stote ball in hot/humid weather. It works well in temperate weather, but not during the dog days of August.

Marv I do not think Staff is saying the Vegas/ISA Rock is the same ball as the Stote, two different balls.

Discussion: Total Knee Replacement

Okay for who really know me this will not be a surprise: This falls under what were you thinking and usually the answer is you were not. I decided i was having such a great day that I decided to take an epson salts BATH. Optimum word BATH. Getting in the tub was fine, but then you have to get out. I had no intention of calling my son and nephew to come help me get my naked fat butt out of the tub, but ego was having a reality check. I had to roll to four different position before I was finally able to push with my good leg and both arms. I thought about taking the Rocky victory stance then just decided to shower off and get the hell out before something bad happened. Told my wife and her comment was I guess we better get you a medical alert necklace in you have fallen and can't get up. Is it to later to return her Christmas gifts. I think I would stick to showers for the foreseeable future.

For my Ex Team-mate who trolls the message board

Christmas Eve present to myself. 30 minutes 6.9 miles on the bike 234 calories. I am so blessed by the Lord to have recovered from my surgery as well as I have. Wonderful support by my Surgeon, PT staff, boys and most beautiful wife. She massages by leg muscles every evening, I believe this to be integral to my physical and emotional healing.

Day 41 OOOWWWEEEE!!!! PT hurt in a good way. You know you are working hard when the PT person is straining. 0 Degree on straight leg, which means it was straight. I told staff that was probably this first time either leg had been straight in 10 years. Still a long way to go before able to play softball, but totally encouraged. I have lost 15 lbs since surgery, drop in the bucket on what I need to lose, but working on it. No pecan pie for me at Christmas. :-(

118 degree Range of Motion, -5 degrees on straight knee, 5.4 miles in 30 minutes at level 5 recumbent bike, soreness decreasing everyday, I am using The Stick to reduce my T-Band tightness. https://www.thestick.com/

Free agent as of today. Been M+ all of my career except last year, then our Finish Strong team finished 2nd in Worlds and we got bumped. Not sure what my classification will be when I start playing in March. I am on schedule to start hitting at end of Jan.

5'10" 290lbs on a good day. When I am unable to bike I am now doing the elliptical. Today the rubber hits the road, PT sadist, I mean loving human being, is going to have me on a stomach and she is going to get as much bend as possible in the knee. I returned to work on Monday and I am able to take a walk of about a 1000' three times a day. Gman and Webbie, it's all good with me running because I plan on hitting and sitting or at least I hope that is the case. You guys have got me a little jumpy, good thing I do not plan on running until Feb.

Day 28 - Not going to post as often. I have hit an emotional plateau. Body is getting stronger everyday, scar looks like a fine point magic marker. Range of Motion getting better everyday. So what is my problem...I am mentally ready to go hit something, physically I still have a long way to go. My PT sadist/wonderful person pushes me hard and is excited about my improvement. Of course I know that I am way ahead of the curve, but I know how far I have to go and I am wanting to get there already. No need for you guys to tell me to cool my jets and listen to the professional, I am and will continue to do so. My PT,Lisa, has assured me I will be swinging by the end of January and Playing by the first of March. I appreciate her hurting me so good and she appreciates how hard I work. Okay I am now off to the gym. Back to job on Monday, no more mid morning or afternoon nap.

Congrats on your results. Not planning on the sliding thing. My lovely beautiful wife never drops the F bomb, except when I slid into 2nd 6 years ago, I was safe, but that did not carry much weight with her. She explained to me the rug burn on my leg was the least of my worries if I did that again, so no worries there.

negative 3 degrees on the straight leg, 115 degree on ROM. PT is amazed I am on the recumbent bike for 30 minutes, usually 5+ miles, everyday. Long ways to go, but very encouraged.

One of my favorite hitting expressions: don't think, just hit.

I hope to play with someone in March in Hemet then hook up with a team in April. Something new for me, being a free agent.

Day 20 - just exercises no gym
Day 21 - Drove to see the Doc and Physicians Assistant - 115 degree Range of Motion, did a little Christmas shopping, got gas, better clarify gasoline and went home for a nap. Sweating like a farm hand. Off the the gym then a class tonight. First outside PT tomorrow.
