Topic: Bats
Discussion: Cracked Dudley

If the bat still is performing, put some crazy glue on the crack.. will help it last a bit longer.. might only be a surface thing... and get a new one for batting practice before it becomes your gamer.. I alway have to have back ups in the bag..

Discussion: SSUSA how can we get reclassed? MTC 50 2014 major Plus

well Tim, since you don't push here but maybe you push in NorthCal.. how about getting rid of the stupid miles rule... My team is getting sick and tired of playing the first games Sat and the last game sun! How about getting the Ready character to stop putting us facing the sun at 630 pm three straight years..

Discussion: NEW Miken Senior bat (You might want to read this one !)

Paco, you are 100 percent correct... if everything where true about all these bats... everyone would be hitting 800 ft homers by now... the only thing I go by on any senior bat is Durability.. when you hit them all on the sweet spot they will all be within ten feet of each other.. IMO

If you got moved up to major, there is no more AAA in your life...Mid season move up happened to us last year and that was it..

Discussion: Simple Hamstring Question

Everything K man said... FYI I had them were you can see the bleeding and I wrapped them as tight as I could without cramping and played through it... if you feel you can play on thurs, wrap as tight as you can and it will keep it from tearing more!

Talk to Big Ron, he is as Fed up as I am...I don't mind playing on the Big field but not at 6 to 8pm when the sun is right there.. It's BS.. no team should have to do that! Three years straight we had enough.. and we had to play there last year 3 straight at sun time... total BS!

For me personally,, I wouldn't waste my time... They gave us the worse fields at the worst times... every single year.. my whole team is boycotting this tourney... We played on a sun field three straight years and were forced to play back to back to back because of leagues coming in.. worst ran piece of blank tourney, I ever played in!!!!!

Discussion: Pool games....???

I play them at 100 percent, although I think want to play them at 60 percent.. I will say I am more reluctant to run for people in those games and there are tourneys that the wins are important such as a bye in first round or a better time in starting the championship rounds.. so you have to weigh it all and see what's important to you.. Goodluck and Have fun... For the record, I feel the same way you do...I usually look at these games as a way to get some ABs in and get in the flow.

Discussion: Major plus problem

Webbie, although these results show your point, it is not indicative of the true example of dynasty.. if you were to take all the SSUSA Tourneys and show the results, I think you would get a better Idea of the Dynasty teams.. plus the fact second and third place teams not listed... you will find these teams Tim spoke of every year. The real discussion here is how do you build a better Major plus division... My team played in a 50 Major plus tourney a few weeks ago and took second, we didn't even win a game! LOL We had All Tourney guys for that tourney too.. What a Joke! This is the problem with the plus division.. to Fix it you need to move up more teams so that there is someone to play instead of the 2 to 6 teams that play 50plus ball!

Discussion: Major plus problem

Webbie, you are 100 percent wrong on Tim's team wanting to move to 55 major... wasn't even on his wish list! for the record, I don't believe in breaking up any team... however, not bringing enough teams up to the Major Plus division makes it to easy for the dynasty team to win.. If they had to go through 40 or 50 teams instead of the 3 to 6 teams that show up.. might be a big difference..IMO.. Another aspect is that SSUSA would be keeping the non Dynasty teams happy by having other competition other than getting their ass's handed to them by the Dynasty teams..

Discussion: Pool games....???

Screamer 5, no doubt that the money of everything that we pay for makes it seem more acceptable when we get more games per dollar!.... There is one more aspect from a coach's perspective... When you have 12 to 14 guys on a team that most of us self sponsor, you get a chance to play everyone in those bracketing games..

I play outfield and would not mind one bit(BTW I could play every inning of every game), sitting for a few innings or entire game in order to rest and get ready for the championship rounds.

Also, it helps to get your second tier players some ABs to help them get their confidence up for when they are called on. Keeps moral on the bench up and makes everyone more cohesive in my opinion!

Discussion: Required Face Masks

Omar, all I can say if I was on a team like yours I would quit! your fielders suck!;-) Now, here is my observation... I played 40s and 50s major and plus 8years into Senior softball.. in all the games we have played, and we play about 14 to 16 tourneys a year.. two guys got hit.. one a pitcher and one a 3rd baseman.. bad hop hit the 3rd baseman and a shot right at the pitch by JK inc that ended the game as we beat them! We played against the biggest and strongest guys in the game... usually my team is associated with glove work! Not injuries from batted balls... BTW not one guy ever went to the hospital from a batted ball against us or on any of my teams! Facts

Discussion: Not HAPPY with Bats Unlimited!

had a bad experience with EBAY and a seller.. first off.. my wife answers the door and it's USPS with an empty bat box... he says he will take it back and that there is nothing in it.. I notify the seller and eBay.. they do nothing and now it's my responsibility to track it all down... I summit what I found to EBAY and they side with the seller and I was sold an empty box.. Bat for my son was never delivered and I was out $150.00..
