Topic: Bats
Discussion: HAS ANYBODY TRIED THIS?


I thought hitting a bat with a rubber mallet or any way except hitting balls was against SSUSA policies. Is hitting it with a rubber mallet as you rotate it much different than rolling it? I don't think so.

Thanks:

You guys should jump on this if it can fit in your schedule. Great fields and Shane puts on some of the best tourneys you will ever play in.

Discussion: Infielders; do you wear a cup?


I can't stand them so have not wore one in years but will give the Nutty Buddy a try. I been kicked in those puppies before and it is not a lot of fun.
XXXL, that must be about half a backetball!

Thanks

Discussion: Major Plus


Teams should not have to break up or drop players just because they were the best in M+. You should not be punished just because you won it all. The only M+ team we have in Washington is the Legends so where do they go if they are required to drop a few of their players? They worked hard for success so breaking them up is not the solution.

Discussion: 2 piece Ultra broke after 6 games..... extremely disappointed


I have two of these bats. The 28oz took about 100 swings to open up and a 30oz that was pretty good out of the wrapper. I was ready to give up on the 28 but when it started to soften up the bat performed great. They have also been very durable from the folks I have spoke to. In our league a lot of the big hitters have switched to them.

Good luck on a replacement but I think they will do you right.

John:

I was not trying to be funny. You set the bar pretty high for us 60's players.

Great job by all you guys to come back in the losers bracket like that.

See you tomorrow.

Local is the extremely athletic guy who was probably wearing sunglasses and hits 4 or 5. Lots of power with exceptional speed.

Shane:

Looks like a strong field and we will need to play up or down but it will be fun and competitive. Will be interesting to see how all the teams do that were moved up.

Thanks for organizing and running this tourney.

Discussion: What is 400 feet....


Good question Tim:

I do believe hitting a ball 400' has a lot to do with conditions. We played the other night in 40 degree temp with a hard wind blowing out and balls were flying on our field. I have never hit a ball 400' but that night hit one that landed in a spot I have never touched.

I get to watch the NW legends 50 M+ team play in our local tourneys and they hit quite a few in the 400' range.

Discussion: Other bats


I have a first generation Worth Jeff Hall Maham (red) That has at least 1000 hits on it and is still going strong and when you hit the sweet spot is nearly as hot as any senior bat I have ever hit. Two of the longest balls i have ever hit were with this bat. If you can find one I highly recommend them.

Discussion: Bat/ball combos of yesteryear


1973, We used the day/night Dudly and they were soft and out of round by the 4th inning. I believe that was right about the time the Bombat arrived on the scene. The Mag Bat was a little later but it was a dud. Somebody came out with a bat that had stripes that was not bad if you could find the sweet spot. In the late 70's some of our big hitters used a bat that looked like a fungo that I believe we call the Thumper. It was a load to swing.
When the balls took a big dump in the late 70's I stopped playing with the big boys because at 150lbs I just could not hit that ball anywhere. When the worth Blue and red dots came out I started playing with the better teams again.

My question is do bat warmers benefit performance or durabuility? Or neither?

I know guys who have been hitting these bats in cooler weather and I have not heard of one breaking.

Hi Alan:

did you get a chance to test this bat? A few guys I know have the 2 piece Miken's and they are very pleased with the performance and durabuility.

Discussion: WHAT IS A MAJOR PLUS PLAYER?



I have no idea what a M+ player really is but this year I am fortunate to be one. At 60 I figure it is a good chance to see how I really measure up. The only negative I see is having the M+ tag that I hope they will do away with some day.

As for Joe, I met him on this board a few years back and he went out of his way to help me get a USSSA bat. A few years later I met him in person in Portland Oregon. Two years ago My Son went with me to the Northwest Nationals in SAC and Joe spent an hour of his time talking to my Boy about hitting. I have yet to see him play but he enjoys this game as much as any person I have ever met. I don't always agree with his views but we all have our own opinion. He is good for senior softball.

Thank You:

southernson:

Where did you see all the altered bats and how did you know they were doctored? I thought that had been cleaned up in the senior game.

Best SS in 60's is the guy from the Ruth team that won the Major division last year in Vegas.
