Thanks Dave. Iím suppose to move up to a 65 team in November. The coach said since I turn 64 this month I will be eligible for 65ís after November 1st. Just to clarify my situation. Thanks

Dave. When you get a chance can you display the relevant rule for age protocols for 65ís? Does it matter if the tourney is a qualifier. People have told me that teams are allowed underage players if the tourney is not a qualifier? I donít want to go there and risk a suspension.

This should be an easy one except for me. Do all bats with an ASA stamp conform to a 1.20 rating?

Discussion: Facial Injuries

I know what you mean Turning 2. Itís a hard position to play. I just started playing last year again. Played RF back in the day 30 years ago when I could throw it home. The right side is the most difficult for sure. But you made me feel better with your comment.

Thanks for that info Bill. Hopefully I will have the same outcome you did without anything more serious. Funny, I was shopping for 16Ē glove a few days earlier. The ball was tailing a little but it could have been the wind gust too. I didnít need to throw the ball so I tend to use both hands with the glove in front of my face. Gonna go a little more to the side nowólol

Discussion: Facial Injuries

Just wanted to share some advice on getting treatment for head/face injuries. I got hit in the eye socket over the weekend at the Spring Training Classic in Phoenix. It happened when I was fielding a fly ball in RC. The ball deflected off my glove and hit me in the left eye socket. My wife insisted that I go in because the pupil wasnít responding in light. The ER doc noticed the same thing and called the eye doc in. He did an exam and said it was a good thing I came in because it would have gotten worse if not treated with a potential for total vision loss. The CT scan showed blood pooling in the sinus cavity of the opposite eye. Now I have follow ups with the eye doc and ENT, and a whole lotta eye drops. Moral of the story listen to your better half. For me, itís back to training camp to learn how to field a routine fly.

Discussion: Bat grip

Anyone had any luck with your batting grip changes? I just started reading about the notion that knocking knuckles aligned on the bat create more bat speed. Iím looking more for accuracy. I need to experiment with varying grips I guess. I hit 625 last season and looking to better it to 750.

Sounds good. My OBP was 633 just by trying to get on base. I think it will improve with timing and confidence. I just got a new driver that has a 50 gram shaft when most shafts are around 60. Since it feels better and my control is better. The distance is coming along. Golf is a different animal thoughó-can you say putt for dough!

Yes. It is odd that I seem to get more pop with the D. I have only used the Melee for one tourney. I was the 8th batter and am a 650 hitteróleague average. I got cheated and decided to burn the fielder. Because I donít have power I will always go with the pitch and hit to all fields. I should probably just stick to bases pops once I get the optimal bat for me. Again, these are the only
2 bats I have used after a 13 year layoff. Thanks guys.

But I meant swinging a heavier bat for training purposes.

I have a Melee thatís 25 oz. I seem to have an ASA DiMarini that 27 oz
I seem to have more pop with the DiMarini. I can get about 290 out of it
I just started playing again last year. But I never have hit with power.

Good advice. Wasnít sure if I should be swinging a heavier bat to increase bat speed. Some of the pro golfers use that technique. Phil Mickelson for oneóhe is hitting bombs.
