Discussion: Am i wrong to think this way

Watched some videos of Dave V. testing bats from '19 thru '21. Suncoast 235 out of wrapper, '20 Miken JB 225 new 198 after 75 swings, Mach 1 223 new 175 after 50 swings, well broken in Suncoast 160, '21 Miken JB 175,Worth AT 18 190, Dudley Doom 200. Most senior bats test between 260 and 225 new but the numbers will drop to 200 or below with about 100 swings. Only advantage to shaving your bat is it starts out lower than 220 but thinning the walls will take away from durabilty. 200+ for a bat and 50-100 to have it doctored, not worth it. Leave the rules alone, cheaters will always find a way to cheat, sad but true!

From what I heard, when bats get around 150 they are too soft for guys with good bat speed, but great for oldtimers and those without bat speed.

Testing would put an end to an already fading senior softball. Sad to say but there are a few out there who alter their bats, but that has been around forever. What compresion number would you use, when well broken in bats test in the 150/170 range, with most probably in the 180/210 range. A good bat doctor will get by the compression test, but only be good for 1 tourney

Discussion: Any Update on The Stote?

Micro-cell was banned by other associations for a reason. Those suckers fly and it is to easy for the young guns to hit out. We used standard Trump Stote for years here in Michigan and many complained. As an outfielder I was doing a lot more chasing after we changed to Micros. The game is not all about HR's, play some defense and enjoy the fact that at our age we are still playing!

Discussion: Which Ball travels further: ASA or SSUSA

This is from the trump site: The Trump Stote SSUSA Microcell Softball is a great choice for any league or tournament that allows any 44/375 softball. Sold by the dozen, the Trump Stote SSUSA 44/375 ball will give you great consistency and durability. The Microcell (MCT) technology allows the ball to react like it is in low temperatures, and fly further than the standard 44/375 ball, even in hot weather. This ball has the SSUSA stamp and red stitching.

Discussion: Balls for Rock N Reno

Microcell balls are superior to a standard ball when temps get above 75. Microcell balls are banned in USSSA and ASA. I thought ASA stopped using 44/375 balls and the official ball was a 52/300. Trump Stote microcell will will out fly a standard Trump Stote and it is really noticeable in hotter temps.

Discussion: UTRIP -senior ?

In tournament ball the bat must have a bpf of 1.21 or lower(unless on banned list). USSSA have a 1.20 bpf so they are legal but ASA doesn't have the bpf stamp so it is not. Our 55+ and 70+ allow any bat, but our 65+ is any USSSA or ASA bat. We hit classic m's so the difference in bats is minimal. New ASA bats hit them well but don't last very long. In metro Detroit area the most popular senior bats are Adidas(Suncoast) or Dudley. Miken/Worth used to dominate USSSA but everybody else has caught up. ASA used to be Demarini but like USSSA there all pretty good now. Ruckus is a USSSA bat, do you mean Melee.(Adidas is now Suncoast)

What if the pitcher throws a curve and you yell inside and it ends up outside! If the batter can't see where the ball is heading he needs to have his eyes checked

For tCOLUMBUS, Ohio — Amateur baseball and softball players in Ohio will once again be able to take the field starting May 26. But high-fives, water coolers, and spitting will be banned.

Umpires will have to call balls and strikes from as far back from the catcher as possible. Just about everyone will have to maintain their distance and bring a mask.


The Ohio Department of Health on Friday released a list of mandatory measures – as well as optional recommendations – for adult and youth baseball and softball leagues to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

While no league can have more lax rules than the ones listed below, Lt. Gov. Jon Husted said Thursday that local authorities have the power to impose more stringent health regulations.

Husted said that other “limited-contact” sports -- such as tennis and golf -- will also be permitted to resume on May 26, but so far the state health department has only released guidance for baseball and softball.

The new rules require that:

Everyone at the game – whether on the field or off – must stay at least six feet away from each other at all times, except for players on the field when the ball is in play and families watching together in the stands.
Coaches and umpires must wear face coverings at all times. The same goes for athletes, except when actively participating in the field of play. Masks are “strongly recommended” for spectators.
Game balls must be designated to each team for use while that team is playing defense.
Players must refrain from high-fives, handshakes, and any other physical contact with other players, coaches, umpires, and fans. Instead, the state health department recommends players tip their caps.
All equipment, including bats, gloves, and water bottles, should be used on only by their owner and kept separate from others’ gear. If equipment must be shared, proper sanitation should be administered between uses.
Water coolers and shared drinking stations are not allowed, nor is spitting or eating seeds, gum, and other similar products.
Coaches and players must conduct self-evaluations before each game. Anyone who has symptoms of illness must stay home.
Coaches must make sure players are following prevention measures, including keeping at least six feet away from other players on the bench.
Must avoid exchanging documents or equipment with players, coaches, or spectators. Umpires calling balls and strikes should allow adequate distance behind the catcher while still able to perform their duty.
Spectators cannot go on the field or in the bench area, and they must stay at least six feet away from the backstop.
Individuals should not congregate in common areas or parking lot following the event or practice, and should not exchange items.
Prior to competitive tournaments, event owners must alert the local health department about the event.
Game organizers must maintain a complete list of coaches, players, and employees present at each event, as well as record the date, beginning and ending time of the event, plus name, address, and phone contact to be made available upon request from local health district.

In addition to the mandatory health rules for baseball and softball games, the state also listed a number of recommendations, including having:

Lineups be submitted online or by spoken word, instead of exchanging lineup cards.
All team meetings be held online or over the phone, and conducting check-ins and registrations digitally.
Participants and fans travel to each game alone or with a member of their immediate household.
Athletes wash their hands or use hand sanitizer frequently during games.
During practices, coaches divide players into groups and establish rotating shifts when possible.
Umpires calling balls and strikes “allow adequate distance behind the catcher while still able to perform their duty.”hose who do not know how to copy & paste :
