Discussion: Why dont teams get to rate umpires ?

Hey Dirty or Gary or ? I believe you stated above "Aren't we all getting to old to just whine?" You may wish take a bit of your own advice and give us ALL a break and QUIT your incessant and nauseating WHINING regarding the use of someone else's technology regarding Senior bats!

Discussion: Balls in general

I have reserved my comments and wish to state that i truly understand the issues regarding the quality and performance of the current Senior ball. Much has to do with an individuals type of hitting. Many who typically are considered base hitters are not that passionate regarding a good, solid ball. HOWEVER...i personally hit several times a week AND included in our batting practice balls are several of the actual Trump .52/275 balls TESTED IN LAGUNA CA earlier this year.... FACT: the general consensus is that these balls are in actuality and pardon my expression garbage and very well could be considered a "limited flight" ball. Just another observation.

Discussion: Ohio Senior Player Injured

DIRTY... Sorry but i must have missed it......or it was my over sight but what recent tournament experience have you had that remotely qualifies you to offer any educated input to these discussions? Last i knew city leagues (of which you claim to participate) play primarily ASA ball.....Give it a rest. It is the 21st Century either lead, follow or get out of the way.

Discussion: Balls in Manteca tourney this weekend

It does not surprise me. Try this...our team is notified at 8:30 am that our bracket had been cancelled. The story was that the first two teams REFUSED to play on the field they put us on. After an hour and forty-five min. drive and all ready stuck there...i checked out the field. I CANNOT BLAME THE TWO TEAMS IN THE LEAST. A girls softball field: NO FENCES, NO BATHROOMS, NO CONCESSIONS, WEEDS ON THE INFIELD, NO DOUBLE BASES AT FIRST and now the cheapest garbage balls. It may be inappropriate to mention names but in this case Cathy Cortez was the TD and it looks like another case of let's do some money STEALING by putting on a tournament and sticking it to the Seniors!

Just a question to Dave. I understand the 40's and probably the 50's playing with 325' fences. Does this mean that the 55's will be subjected to this as well?

Discussion: Worth 510 Launch - Old or New?

Hello Sisavic. I personally have broken 5 Worth Launch 510's. All within a three month period all with temperatures above 60 degrees and all using decent balls. Not to bore you but there is some interesting history with this bat. They are of course made by Miken. The gold bat is their 2008 model. It is a tiny bit more reliable than the maroon 2009 model. In 2009 the Launch 510 manufacturing changed to China thus the MADE IN CHINA label you see on the bat. They are having numerous issues with the bat. My opinion is that this bat is garbage. The gold bat for my two cents has as much if not the same pop as the Ultra II. (BOTH MADE BY MIKEN). Keep in mind though that they are virtually the same bat and are both extremely fragile as are all Ultra II's. There is a bit more to the story however i hope this will help you some.

Discussion: Warning

Let me preface this comment by stating that i am not taking a guilty or innocent position in any way regarding your bat purchase. I am a SELLER on eBay and have been myself scammed by several BUYERS. I would NEVER intentionally mislead or misrepresent an item. Several buyers have received an accurately described bat only to hit it....not like it....then state there was something wrong with it OR they found the same bat at a cheaper price. They know the cost to reship and or return an item so i have typically refunded part or all of their costs simply as a goodwill gesture. One should ALWAYS inspect closely any bat LONG BEFORE you start hitting with it. There are two sides to every purchase. Hope pay pal works with you if the bat was in fact misrepresented.

Discussion: WHAT BALL FOR RENO

Just my two cents regarding the balls used in Yuba City (Nor Cal) 5/16-5/17 and prior. They were an embarrassment to the game, the players and the sponsors who graciously spend their money enabling us to play. I might caution the tournament directors who may be doing this to save or make a buck or minimize chasing balls....this may backfire.

Discussion: Worth Launch 510

Hi Guys....Just purchased new Launch 510 for $99 & no shipping. It was such a good price that we are looking to purchase several more for team BP use. At basically half the price of the others if we can get a winters worth of BP it would be worth it. That said our source for the $99 bat is out of stock. Anyone out there have any sources (other than eBay). Thanks

Discussion: Yellow Macenko VS Grey Combat

Hi Guys....looking for some feedback regarding your experience so far as it applies to the DURABILITY ONLY with the new yellow Macenko as compared to the grey Senior Combat. Looks like there are enough Macenko bats out there now to establish a trend. I have hit both now with the yellow having a bit more pop. Unfortunately i have seen now two yellow bats with less than 200 hits crack. I was led to believe that the durability on the Macenko bats had improved. Please i understand temperature, balls etc. etc. have an effect so let's not make this a mile long thread. Just looking for first hand info regarding breakage. Thanks guys!

Discussion: BAN THE ULTRA

Hey PEPPERGRINDER just a question. Do you tell your buddies with the new large head composite golf clubs that they are cheaters? What about the College kids who no longer uses wood but aluminum (ps with far less injuries per capita then walking off a curb) that they are all cheaters. What about the composite tennis racquets ...they must all be cheaters. Oh the hockey industry with their composite sticks....i know they are all cheaters. Just FYI 8-Tracks are no longer the latest technology. This is the 21st Century and as one quite astute individual once said "LEAD....FOLLOW... OR GET OUT OF THE WAY"

Discussion: Las Vegas Results

Just another comment regarding the Desert Bloom complex. The lights were terrible with several near injuries. Restrooms were disgusting! No doors, soap or paper towels we are softball players and have been there before but the wives , girlfriends & fans deserve a bit more. Cops at the complex and surrounding area every several hours busting people.
