Discussion: 2017 SSUSA Senior Masters

If you know me then you will always here me say that the bats are senior bats. They are already hot being a 1.21. Videotaping your swing is great as well. Yes working out is the best thing you can do. And no the bat does not make the batter. Just get in the best shape you can and take bp. I agree with that. My comment of being hot right out of thee wrapper was referring to this player just picking this bat up and starting pounding with it. That is all. The player should always use what he is comfortable with.

I went and hit with about 10 gents myself today in Brook Park. 1 got right around 100 swings on the 28 oz. Wicked I have ... I have a 26, and 27 for people to swing with me. I am starting in on the 2nd gear on this Wicked. I am getting a real nice Flex out of the barrel. The bat is really feeling good to me. I also took the new Patriot out to hit with the gang. I was in the middle of the field when one player went up and started hitting and I noticed he picked up the Patriot. I saw for myself and then hit it myself and the Patriot was hot right out of the wrapper. Now I don't say that too much. His first swing it went out. I did not notice what bat he was swinging. He had a very nice round of swings and came back past me and said I like that blue bat... So my last round I hit the Patriot... Nice feeling Senior bat fellas. The Patriot and the Wicked...... Just my opinion.

Discussion: NEW ! Worth Wicked Senior bat

I believe the bat has 3 gears. When you hit the 3rd gear, you will know it. It 's like driving a 70 Chevelle Super Sport. If you get to that 4th gear you know you better slow down before Johnny Law gets you!

I am following up with a post about what you (the players) think about Miken/Worth's new bat called The Wicked. Give me some honest feedback about the bat if you were able to get your hands on one. Have had some great comments from some players. This is a chance to give me some one on one feedback about the product. This is the only way I can continue working to meet your demands. Thank You...

Discussion: 2017 SSUSA Senior Masters

This past week was an enjoyable week as I got to see a lot of old friends. In various age groups as well. If it was to just shoot the shit with some of them, it was great shit shooting… Ha! Ha!. See where we all are 20 to 25 years later. The one good thing I noticed was how some of the players still have this game in their heart and soul.
I myself am happy to still be involved in something that I gave my full attention to while getting older. Softball all the time for over 40 years. Glad to be home and look forward to going to the Huntsman games in a couple of weeks.

I want to briefly talk about the new Worth Wicked bat that has been living up to all of the hype. If I did not believe that I would not post this. The bat itself has some unique points in its development.
The skinny handle provides a smoother flex in your swing from the start in your hands and that enhances the flex of the barrel.
The bat has a .05 ˝ oz. endload and that endload is not your usual endload where everything is at the very end of the barrel of this bat. The barrel is 13 inches and with the weight being distributed more evenly towards the end of the barrel it makes for an easy swing.
So I just want to say thanks for an enjoyable week of Senior Softball. If you have any questions you can email me at mike@bigcat844.com.. Take Care…

Discussion: Las Vegas 2017 Men's Master SSUSA!

Just a quick note that I will be present at Las Vegas for the SSUSA Senior Softball Masters Event. With close to 600 teams it should make for an interesting time. I will have the latest Freak Platinum PT Senior line of bats for sale as well as the new Worth Wicked XL Senior Bat to sell. I will be set up at Big League Dreams and will be going to a number of different complexes to try and see a lot of the players and teams. If you are trying to reach me while I will be there you will be able to text me or call me on my cell work phone at 330-419-0205. Not sure how much product I am going to have but I will try and bring some additional things. Hope to see you there...

Thanks Chick50. Most appreciated. I talked with a number of players in Lansing. I try to get to everyone. Sometimes it gets a little bit scrambled trying to do three things at once. But I aim to please. There were a few players that had questions on Miken bats. Feel free to email me gals and gents at mike@bigcat844.com with any question pertaining to the Miken/Worth line of softball.equipment.

Discussion: weight training

Great question big cat7... I myself had that issue at one time in my career where I was getting too strong and bound up. At that point I started stretching more and laid off of the higher weight. You can lift all year around..Just have to put together a good routine. There are trainers available if you have any issues on what to do and not to do. Hope this helps.

Discussion: Bat prices

I agree with you the consumer. Bats should not be more than 199.95 all the time. Then they will gradually slip down to 189.95, 179.95 and so forth. You can always talk to me and I will work with you to help you out. If I am able to keep the pricing down then that is what I will do. I use to come to the tourneys with KS and we would always try and help out the consumer.175.00 and 180.00 all day long. If I can help you out I will. I have been known to try and help ball players with broken bats from who knows when but I will try. Hope you and everyone else has a good 2017 season....

Topic: Product review
Discussion: Trump Rock

I have to say that I would always use a 44/375 ball no matter what company it is made by for senior softball. Just my .02 cents worth which is not worth a hill of red beans. People will say that the real home run hitters will hit home runs and the ones that shouldn't won't. I for one like a league or tournament where there is hardly any complaining and lets play ball. Once the 52/300 is used for tournaments that you have to pay for you should try and make it where there is less complaining. I feel with a 44/375 you achieve that. Like I said it is only my thoughts.

First off Thank You to everyone who is helping us get this Senior Scoreboard going. Second you can go to www.mikemacenko.com and go into the site and scroll down past the Clean Planet Links. Right below it you will see a Senior Scoreboard link. I have my web site on a older server and I am in the process of moving everything to a brand new server. I have already developed a bigger link so you can see the link and can't miss it. Once again Thank you to everyone and continued Good Luck to all of the players.I will have all of my changes for the site done by Saturday. It does not effect the Senior Scoreboard at all.....

When you sign up for the free information you get to see the scores and after 30 days if you want to continue to get and view the tournament scores it will cost 20.00 for a years membership. bergy12000 I saw where we posted the 60AA but nothing yet in the 55 Major. This is something that we are working on.
