Discussion: Does your team track player statistics?

The Clubteams.org is the way to go. It has been developed by Dave Melosi and has a number of teams already using the program. Clubteams.org is free program to use to manage your team. It is the best program I have seen and used since the beginning of the Internet.

Discussion: Stats

To all, I wanted to clarify something here, The Club Teams free version includes keeping team stats, easy communications, scheduling and much more. You can keep the team stats on Club Teams and it will automatically upload to John's stats tracking. This version is not just a 30 day trial.

Thank You

Hey John, it looks like you've got a pretty good handle on the Club Teams program. I am looking forward to promoting this program for them. I am also going to get the sponsorship to give out some prestigous awards for the champ in each category. There is nothing that I would like to do more than to recognize the senior softball programs.

Once again this program has a free trial for 30 days to see if it meets your needs. I have been involved in softball for 40 years and I know this will make things easier for the coaches as well as the players.

If you want to take advantage of this great concept you can contact Dave Melosi at dmelosi@gmail.com..
If you want to talk softball you can contact me at mike@bigcat844.com

Thank You

Mango, If they were to use the X-Rock they might not get the tourney in. Parnell and Beeler and Heller will be hitting them over the lights this time. Ha! Ha!

Discussion: Senior bats vs. 52/300 ball

Here is the thing about these balls and bats. It has been an ongoing battle for over 40 years. Making a bat and ball combination that satisfies the softball arena. You make a bat too hot they change the ball. Make a ball too hot and they change the bat.

I am just saying that yes the sound of the ball coming off of the bat is probably the one thing that can make a hitter happy or put a frown on their face. They like to hear the click. For senior softball you need a 44/375 ball and that will keep everybody happy. Let the younger players use the 52's.

All they (younger players) have to do is fine tune their swings a little bit more with some extra batting practice. Before you know it the bat companies will make a bat to contend with the 52's. They have been working on it for awhile now. Leave the 44/375's for seniors and senior bats.

The less you try to force the seniors to use other bats you will only hear complaints. If I am a rec director or a association director, the less headaches at the end of the day the better off we all are.

Just my opinion.....

Discussion: Dudley Lightning 12" barrel

Dudley is a great company and they should go above and beyond the call of duty. They have great people working with them on the bats. Davey Reed, Hank Garris. You can't go wrong with those two guys. Everybody is selling the Dudley bats. At my place of work we just got a big shipment in of the bats. Dudley is catching on quick!.

Discussion: End cap repair

Gorilla Glue, Locktite are quick fixes that work. Marine glue works the best because of the flexability in the glue once it drys. If you can get the 24 or one week repair kit will be better than the Gorilla Glue or Locktite only because of the flex in the Marine glue. Kevin Schullstrom is the person who found out about the Marine Glue. He repaired enough of them while working on the bats. Randy has the right idea. Try and clean the excess glue off of the barrel and end cap. Good Luck.

Alan, Gary, Bruce, and the rest of the gang. Thank you for the prayers and Get Well wishes. I am doing just fine now and relaxing at home recuperating. Gall bladders issues caused a real bad flare up with the Pancreas and so with a great doctor I have, he took care of the situation. 2014 is finally behind me ! Whew! What a year. Ha! Ha! Looking forward to traveling this upcoming summer watching, selling and hopefully playing some senior softball. Looking forward to the event at Vero Beach with Alan. That should be just what the doctored would order. Once again Thank You..

Your softball friend.

Discussion: Softball Spring Training Program in Vero Beach in March

I am looking forward to going to Vero Beach for the first Senior Spring Training event. Alan Tanner and Team 1 Sports are putting the event together for the senior players. It should be an outstanding time. The weather should be great and what more can you ask for in the month of March. For all of the Northern folks it will be nice to get away from the cold. So come on down and join in on the fun in March.

Neil Teague has a Spring Training deal set up in Vegas where Denny Crine lives. He has been working it the last couple of years. I would give Neil a call. I will get his phone number and post it for you. Not sure if he is doing it again or not but he would be your best bet.

Discussion: Softballs for World Championships in Vegas

Last year at the Worlds in Vegas we went through almost 500 dozen X-Rocks for the tourney. This year we have over 600 dozen put aside for this years worlds in Vegas. Can not tell you about next year but I do know that this year we have a number of balls ready to be hit. So it should be a shoot out again. Good Luck to all teams that make it there.....

Discussion: SENIOR BATS

What you need to do is call me and I will be able to help you in certain situations. I believe my reputation speaks for itself. If you call Anaconda you get random sales persons. If you call me you will get a softball salesman that does care about the players and respects the buyer. Some things I can't change but with me you do have a chance.

Discussion: SENIOR BATS

Paco 13 is right. We have the Senior Gear and the Twilight for 99.00.. The Senior Gear is a great bat with as much pop as a lot of the other senior bats. Yes the end cap can be a problem with a lot of different types of bats but Combat has had it's share of troubles. The Twilight never took off because of a couple of different reasons. One being that it takes a long time to break in. It is worth the money especially if you break a lot of bats. Just my 2 cents that ain't worth much. Anyway give me a call if you need a good cheap senior bat. 330-419-0205.

Oh by the way the hip replacement did kick my ass a little bit but I have started Physical Therapy and I will be ready to roll some time real soon. Have a great day and a better tomorrow.
