Discussion: Today's "super" bats

OZ40, looks like you will need to ask same questions about ASA bats if softball goes with the 52/300 ball because it will be the juiced bat. LOL

ETDave, what is secret bat you use? I play Dallas day league using 52/300. Playing tournament with 44/375 l will hit ball out now and then. With 52 ball in 3 years on 300’ field - zip -. Oh, yes l cut the ball for max carry.
Also, have not seen anyone hit a ball out.
SO, what is secret bat.
Thanks, James

The biggest thing I believe that stops a HR hitter from hitting balls out after passing 70 is confidence. When you intentionally strike the ball correctly it will go.
A lack of confidence will impead hitting balls correctly with power.

Note: I am not addressing health, ok.

Gary, as long as your 75 team stays under or at 3 ‘out of rating’ players you can play all season with both 70aaa and 75aaa.

OZ40, the first player. There are a lot of player 2’s around. Very few Reliable Power Hitters, And he is a decent defense player.

Discussion: What Became of 30+ Ounce Bats?

In 1997 l got a 97 Model 26oz Double Wall Demarini.
The best bat l had ever hit. We had great balls to go along with the bat.
Ray Demarini said the 97 model 26oz was the best bat he ever built because it hit the ball like a 28oz bat.

So, can you get a 26oz bat then get 4 pair of gloves that weigh 1oz 2oz 3oz and 4oz. Result would be a 26oz bat all the way though a 30oz bat.

A 26oz bat should provide more swing speed and ball exit speed. Is that true?

Big Cat, if you hit 2 off your hands it is ‘The Man’ swinging the bat and nothing to do with the bat!

Discussion: NEW ! Worth Wicked Senior bat

Lefty, thanks for the report.
Looking at online videos looked like this bat out of wrapping would just launch balls out of the park without any effort.
Your report sounds very real (for a legal bat).

For me a well broken in Big Cat is the most awesome bat.

Please DO report what you think after comparing the Wiked and Big Cat.

HJ, my opinion, you do not need a new bat. My day league went to that ball and started letting us hit Senior bats.
I can hit fence or short hop fence.
You do need to make sure you cut the ball to get max distance.
A low Smoked line drive hit center bat center ball (260-275 feet) will go crazy at about 240 feet.

Discussion: weight training

big cat7, one other thing discovered, you really need to relax your jaw and then on down to your shoulders. By lifting heavy you can tighten muscles up destroying flexibility and smooth swing.

You mentioned Tulsa, l played in senior league there about 15 years.

Discussion: weight training

I always kept my training heavy, changing routine by including exercise that stretches muscles to maintain flexibility. You can't have complete flexibility but can have say 85%.
I have crashed by stepping on a wet base in 8am game and because of muscle volume l pop up and continue on to 2nd base. May be half knocked out but not hurt physically.

Also if you are a power hitter you can maintain hr power into your 70's.

Discussion: How best to position11 defensive players?

When old enough to play 11 speed slows down,
Hitting may still be at a high level.
20+ runs happen a lot.
OLD men can only run to the fences so many times in 95+ temp.
We still like to play though, having 11 defenders sure helps.

Discussion: How best to position11 defensive players?

Just played a tour in Waxahachie Tx.
We only had 10 players.
The other team scored probably 6 or 7 runs by hitting up middle.
Without the 11 player as a 5th infielder up the middle this resulted in losing by 1 run.
