Topic: Bats
Discussion: New/Old Senior Bats

James, I equate the senior bats like I do golf clubs.. if you bought every golf club on an infomercial, you would never have to swing.. your scores would be negative swings with all the strokes taken off your score..:-)

As for the newest greatest senior bats, they are all around the same distance when broken in.. it's all about how long they last for me!

As for my garage, there are no senior bats in it.. All my bats were replaced when broken.. I have a Dudley that has about 200 swings on it and is as hot as anything I have swung.. I have 4 bats in my bag (two Reeboks and two Dudleys) and have them just incase my gamer bat breaks. They say you get up to 600 swings or more out of a Dudley, so I will get to hit my gamer for two more years! ;-)

Discussion: Its suppose to be about players playing the game

My Warriors team got lucky, We had great luck in our umpires. We had A great umpire for at least 4 of our games. He was consistent with the height and was friendly with all. Which always is a pleasant way to play softball..

Discussion: Western Nationals 50 Major predictions

Hey Taits, that may be true On NCSSA.. I don't know.. but I will say, if they had Favorites.. the North Cal Warriors should of been one of them. We participated more than any other major or major plus team the last three years...which means more of our $$$$$ in that sanction! So, when it comes to the sun fields.. they should of listen to us.. they never did.. so we will do something different .. Medford. If we don't get a guarantee in the future.. we will Boycott again! Tim Millete hates two day tourneys so he played in 40s tourney and stayed away from NCssa 50s last few years... there is always an alternative..

thanks 2B for the kind words.. Hey Unchained 44,, it's not the Western we are boycotting, it's the NCSSA Hall of fame tourney.. three years in a row they put us on the Sun field while everyone else was playing on the other fields. last year we had two games in a row at 6pm and 7ish.. it is pathetic softball! I understand having one game during a tourney that is a sun game.. but we were getting them all the time at this event.. enough is enough, and I told our coach I'd rather be with my family then play in a pathetic game like a sun game! IMO, they should treat it like rain and I do think it's dangerous with batters swinging blindly,, I'm sure one of these games a bat will go flying because of a stupid swing.. IMO..

No, we have decided to boycott this one... We get the sun field 3 years in a row.. Rather hit BP somewhere.. We added Medford to our tourney list instead... Tourney Director is never going to get our money to swing blind ever again..

Discussion: Western Nationals Observations

Sorry to hear about the field condition.. We had a field flooded in left center for the morning game but by the second game it dried out.. and was fine the next day.. We were at Maidu.. Only thing I would recommend to SSUSA is NEVER EVER HAVE A MAJOR PLUS TEAM PLAY ANY OTHER DIVISION IN BRACKET PLAY. It does affect the seeding! Unfair to the unfortunate teams that have to play them! IMO

Other than that, we had a Great time and Good umps..

congrat's Badseed on the great run... that was one hell of a Game with my Warrior team.. They scored 7 runs without an out to beat my team in the bottom of the open. After we scored 11 to take a 6 run lead.. Well done!

Discussion: Religious ceremonies at tournaments

1rackseeker, well said... I judge everyone on their character and never on their religious Beliefs. I don't care one way or another if my teammates want to have a prayer(which they don't) before or after the games, I won't be a part of it because of my own beliefs.. To each his own and if it's not hurting anyone, go for it!

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..

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

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!
