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.

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.

Discussion: what kind of stretching excise do you do before game time?

I like to do 5 push-ups, then 10, then 10 again.
This brings some heat to muscle and tissue.

Results, l can swing bat better, much better.

After push-ups do some stretching, throwing, etc.

I do not do pull-ups because I can't get my feet to clear the ground. lol truth

Discussion: Advice

Playing SS you have some time, However,
you may get put at 3rd base
and, WITH the Senior bats you may have about 1 second for
a ball to go from bat to even with 3rd base.

70+ men can hit a line shot over the fence with the Senior Bats.
So, if that shot gets pulled at the 3rd baseman, well?????

Been there and had it happen to me.

Discussion: Cataract Surgery

I wear bifocals (lined). I bought a pair of single focus sunglasses and found it did not work out good. When very use to bifocals it is hard to adjust (for me) to a single focus.

I tried Progressive a long time ago and found as a softball gets closer to you, especially batting the Progressive lenses tend to make the softball seem to curve because of the progressive magnification.

Discussion: Looking For Some Feedback

southpaw, some very good guidelines that can work for you and team.

The only thing I do different is in the outfield I only use my glove hand as I found out for me a long time ago I can catch
some balls that way that otherwise I could not get to. If I tried to use 2 hands I would miss some catches for outs (in the air). With one hand you can get up to 18 inches in reach.

When I play SS or 3B I always use 2 hands on ground balls.

Hope you have a great year with the new team and thanks for doing that.

Discussion: Taping of bat handle.

Jethro, in 1994 while playing in the Industrial "A" national championship l had my bat taped like this. The umpire made me remove the extra tape before l could bat.
