Discussion: Why so many shaved senior bats

Not knowing much about Compression Testing would this be able to single out a shaved senior bat from an unshaved senior bat?
If not, then using a better ball than the Stote would at least reduce the number of (alleged) shavers . . .

Discussion: Why so many shaved senior bats

One theory is more guys started using shaved bats once the Trump Stote ball was put in play. The Stote doesn't go as far, especially in the heat, so maybe the shaved bats can compensate for the loss of distance?
Same thing happened in open age league play when the 52/300 ball was put in play and players (allegedly) started using shaved USSSA or ASA bats.

Discussion: Speed up rules

You wouldn't want to "do away with the plate being a strike" because the umps would have a really tough time calling balls or strikes on pitches that landed right where the mat touches the plate.

Not at all like a lo-comp golf ball; all your players will lose at least 25% distance . . .

Discussion: Loose end cap

Sorry this has been discussed before but what product(s) is it that will fix a loose end cap & keep it from popping out again?

Discussion: Why are runs allowed the decider?

So winning 15 - 14 is actually better than winning 30 - 15, really???

Discussion: Ruling clarification

Just put a line from the 3rd Base line to the 1st Base line 40" in front of the plate. If the batter steps over the line before he hits the ball (or steps on or over the plate) he's Out. The Batter's Box is unnecessary just like no cares about or enforces the Catcher's Box, the Coaches Boxes or the Pitcher Box.
Get rid of it!!!

Pathetically stupid; how can a ball over the fence count against your Home Run total when it's NOT a Home RUN???

Discussion: Zytiga/Prednizone

Haven't had any side effects other than sleeping difficulty but would agree it's best to take with food.
Prescribing doctor said consistent, long-term usage can cause bones to soften but most people take it in a single 7 to 10 day tapering dose for a specific problem (inflammation, pain, swelling).
Prednisone is a steroid & once you take it you'll see why steroid use was rampant in pro baseball; it makes you feel stronger & more energetic, at least in the short term . . .

Discussion: Zytiga/Prednizone

have taken prednisone sporadically for the last 20 years. Great as an anti-inflammatory & seems to ramp up your whole energy level but sometimes to the point it becomes hard to get to sleep.
Should probably take it all at once in the morning.

E6 fyi compression testing Senior bats won't work because None of them will pass the 220 standard . . .

Discussion: divivsions..

Agree w/coop but would keep the existing divisions & go with the following rules:
AA - 0 HRs & 4 runs/inning
AAA - 1 HR & 5 runs/inning
Major - 3 HRs w/1-up & 6 runs/inning
Major + - 5 HRs w/1-up & 7 runs/inning

All excess HRs would still be outs; wouldn't be perfect of course but should get more teams to play up to their level to reduce sand-bagging which seems to be the #1 complaint on this board about the current SSUSA system.

Discussion: Batting tee

Thanks Surf; had 2nd rotator cuff repair 3 weeks ago & hoping to be able to play again by August or September.
Sounds like the tee might be a good rehab tool for rebuilding the swing.

Any comments on whether batting tees are helpful in re-habbing your swing after surgery?
Which brands are the best for softball?

Discussion: SSUSA Staff: Shaved Bats

Probably a lot more shaved bats in senior ball now that SSUSA has switched to the crappy, underperforming Trump Stote ball. Same thing that "allegedly" happened in open age ball when they started switching to the crappy, underperforming 52/300 ball.

Discussion: flip flop and one up in league play

Be careful what you wish for; if you flip-flop in the 7th then start the 2nd game as the home team, you'll end up playing 4 innings in a row in the field.
