Discussion: Today's "super" bats

EXPLAIN THE "TEST".... Please.

Out of the wrapper some of Senior bats exceed the standard and certainly after a few rounds of BP wouldn't pass the standard. Jawood yours won't pass either!Just as a broad statement bats exceeding a test doesn't or shouldn't imply "cheating".

JDUB is correct these bats aren't going away.The ball is a great place to start and can be made to whatever allowable spec required but, every time we change balls or make a changes to the ball we all go ballistic that the ball isn't "hot enough".So what we have are HOT balls and "LEGAL" bats that are "too hot!" EXPLAIN the test....

Discussion: New Miken Senior line for 2018

With all due respect. You might as well photoshop the next new bat into one video. Nothing changes.Same swing-same "400 ft" statements. No matter which bat everything is the same except the color of the bat.You do know your stuff but, with you swinging it's not saying much about the bat. Next video let your Pitcher swing (hit).

Discussion: 1-1 or 0-0 Count

OZ40. You are correct NO TWO GAMES ARE ALIKE and they won't be anymore alike with the 1-1 count. However if you take the averages of the results you would derive data that would support changing to 1-1 or not. Today you have one "softball expert" or anothers opinion, "the 40's played 1-1"- "we played 1-1 when we were younger", "the survey supports 1-1".

While everyones opinion matters, a change (if there is one) should be made on more than opinion. Understanding that Majority rules and the survey was a good idea but, again A survey is just OPINION without consideration to fact.

Just for the record I don't mind either way. It's just I think (MY OPIONON)that any change should be fact based. The only real fact being considered today is that "the 40's played 1-1". Fact is. The 40's division is simply a faster game.
Now had the 60's played 1-1 and had the same result ? Quite a different picture.

Discussion: 1-1 or 0-0 Count

I think to make a valid comparison of weather 1-1 speeds up the games and not make a decision based on one age (40) group.We could be to play with 1-1 count for seeding games and full count for Bracket play for all participating age groups of said tourney.Then we could very easliy compare 1-1 games and full count games - time and innings played across all ages groups participating.The data derived from several or a few tourneys could then be used to make a valid decision not based on opinion.

Discussion: Bat Shelf-- Who Has One?

gott2play-Thanks for the info.I did speak to them when I received mine unassembled. Perhaps they have changed.I received pieces and parts. I measured and counted each one and now have the "recipe" to duplicate the finished unit.I Have already sold a few units locally and will probably sell more.
It is a Great shelf.

Discussion: Bat Shelf-- Who Has One?

gott2play.This is not noted nor advertised but, what you will receive from Batshelf is parts and pieces to make the shelf. You will have to assemble the pieces. You will not receive a completed unit. Also I was told that parts don't require gluing together but, if you are flying to tourneys it is best to use PVC adnesive and glue the thing together.Once assembled it is a great shelf.

Discussion: 1 and 1 count

Not sure what the 40's "not using a foul" statement implied.Logically no grace foul should save time.I'm Not saying 1-1 doesn't make for a faster "paced game".I'm saying that until we stop throwing the a ball around after an out, stop throwing pitches between inning,having 2-3 runners an inning, and not hustling on and off the field the time limits will still cause us to play less than 7 inning games. Not speaking on conjecture, Again I saw no 7 inning games in the 40's using the 1-1 count.Extra foul ball or not.

Played in Naples at winter worlds.I watched the 40's play. The 1-1 count did nothing to speed up the game and the games that I watched were all shortened by time limit.

Prayers needed for a fallen Brother. Ron was hit in Cinncinatti while pitching in an ISSSA tourney. Underwent surgery to save his leg was in ICU due to blood clots.Has been in hospital since being hit.Faces a lot of rehab. Just goes to show that you don't have to get hit in the chest or head to get very seriously hurt.
