Topic: Tournaments

I concur, also. Odie it was good to play you guys and appreciate what your team stands for.

This was our first bigger 50 Major tournament as we got bumped last year and we enjoyed it and were happy that we competed in every game.

Hope we see all of you in October at Winter Worlds.

Discussion: Best bat-ball combinations

We play ASA in league around here so I have 2 ASA bats and 2 different models of Senior bats. We take a lot of BP between a few of us on our senior team so I can tell you without a doubt that a senior bat will outhit ANY ASA or USSSA bat no matter which ball you use.

Put it this way. We often hit off a tee about 20ft behind home plate so the fence is right at 320' on our field. We usually use 44/375 senior balls for BP so there is that. But we have a few 52/300's mixed in, as well.

I can routinely hit balls off the tee to the fence or over with my senior bat. I rarely get one out with either of my ASA bats and they are front line bats (Legit border battle and Freakzilla).

When we take pitched BP I will warm up with my ASA and then switch to a senior bat. The distance difference is easily 50' or more.

I am a line drive hitter with pretty good power. I am no 400' monster home run hitter but can get one 350-375 on occasion.

Long story short, if you can swing a senior bat in your league it will easily outperform ASA or USSSA bats with 52/300's and will last a good long time. You don't get a warranty but you don't pay $300 for a front line bat either.
