Discussion: Which bat to buy?

5’10”, 195 lbs., turn 61 in November

The one you have is my HOTTEST bat right now. I just bought two more.

My current bat is the 2018 1-piece EASTON Empire (27 oz.) - balanced. I have one in reserve plus a 28 oz. model. I also have about 15 other SENIIOR bats to include the red SUNCOAST Melee 2. I broke my first Empire after about a year of use to include league nights. I’ve hit some of my furthest bombs with the Red ADIDAS. I hit HRs with the Empire too, just not as far. A 309 ft. HR is the same in the scorebook as a 375+ ft. HR. For me, it’s the overall feel of the bar and more often my balanced swing is working better than my endload swing. As my buddy Richie would say, “BOOM”!

Discussion: Anyone get the Efflexxa shots for thier knee OA?

I get GEL-One (not medicinal) shots every 6 months and just got them about a month ago for the 4th time. I have minor arthritis in my right knee and not even close to knee replacement time. Just turned 60 and have never had any surgery on any knee. My knees were achy before I started getting the shots. I'm retired Air Force and can get my free GEL-One shots every six months.

From the web:

"Gel-One Cross-Linked Hyaluronate is a transparent, sterile, and viscoelastic gel made from sodium hyaluronate (hyaluronan). The hyaluronan used to make Gel-One comes from rooster combs and is highly purified.
Hyaluronan is a natural substance found in high amounts in synovial joints. It acts like a lubricant and shock absorber in the joint and is needed for the joint to work properly."

I know a few senior softball players that have tried the shots. Doesn't work for everyone. It EUFLEXXA by the way.

Discussion: When my team doesn’t play I still want to!!

Dave D. my man!

He should move to the northern California area if he wants to play almost every weekend under the SSUSA and NCSSA guidelines. Plenty of senior softball to be played. Three nights a week of senior softball keeps me loose for the weekend NCSSA tournaments or the 3-day SSUSA tournaments. Can I get a hallelujah from the guys that know me?

Discussion: getting bat bag to tournaments

I use TSA-approved locks to secure my bat bag. It's all in the zipper if you want to use a lock. Been doing this for about 7+ years now. Works for me and I usually bring at least 4 bats.

Discussion: Bad experience for a Class Tournament - Worlds

I like Mike's comment.

Maybe the umpire could've approached the winning coach and asked him point blank, "Did your runner slide across the line?" Only two possible answers. Somebody has to live with the lie. If he says YES, then we have a tie game and 'BruceAZ' will be happy and will get another shot at winning the game.

Integrity and sportsmanship is what SENIOR SOFTBALL is all about!, right?

Discussion: Collision at 1st Base

Remember, defense obstructs, offense interferes. Did the defender obstruct the runner? In this particular play which has happened to me twice, I would rule an out. The INTENT of the double bag is to PREVENT collisions. Both times when I could've collided with the first baseman, I chose to run left and PASS (not touch) the white portion of the bag, thereby avoiding a definite collision. I was still out on both plays but continued to play in the tournament because I avoided possible injuries. I would rather be out on the play than OUT of the tournament. Bottom line SENIOR guy, be safe out there. Your health is more important than game and I know SSUSA would agree with me.

Discussion: Rating Question

I do believe its all about your player index rating. For the last two years, I was able to play 55 Major Plus, 50 Major, and 40 AAA in the World Championships. I think each of these divisions will give you player index rating of 8. 50 Major Plus which I played from '09-'13 gives you a rating of 9. Some players will rate a 10.

Discussion: 2017 Significant Rule Changes - Penalty for non-compliance

"Steve in Tucson" - I touched white in two separate plays last year on close plays at first and was not called out. Both umpires saw that if I went to orange, I would've COLLIDED with the fielder (going after badly thrown balls) on both instances. Bottom line, I try to avoid contact at first at all times due to the over-57 condition of my body internals and parts.

Discussion: Taping of bat handle.

Hey "Swing for the fences", there goes your power.

Hey "Downs", the 2017-18 Rulebook is online and you can download it. Also, since when is an "altered" bat legal for use in any association.

Rulebook (P. 16): 3.4(4)- ALTERED EQUIPMENT

A bat or ball is considered altered when the physical characteristics of a legal softball bat or ball have been changed (EXAMPLE: chilling softballs). Replacing the handle of a metal bat with a wooden or other type handle, inserting material inside the bat, applying excessive tape (more than two layers) to the bat grip or painting a bat other than at the top or bottom for identification purposes are considered altering the bat. Applying a foreign substance to the barrel of the bat constitutes altering the bat. (For penalty, see 3.4(6)). Replacing the grip with another legal grip is not considered altering the bat.


SSUSA agreed to follow the 2007 Summit Altered Bat Recommendation:

A. Penalty for using an altered bat - If a bat is suspected of being altered to enhance performance, a tournament official will determine if the bat will be allowed to be used in play or will request that it be voluntarily surrendered by the owner for inspection. (I'll stop right here).

In other words, I couldn't find anything written in the new rulebook where "altered equipment" can be used.

I read Rule 3.4 (G), and "BJ" is verbatim on this one.

Discussion: Obstruction?????

1.48 • OBSTRUCTION Obstruction is the act of:

A. A defensive player or team member who hinders or prevents a batter from striking at or hitting a pitched ball.

B. A fielder who is not in possession of the ball, in the act of fielding a batted ball, nor about to receive a thrown ball, who impedes the progress of a runner or batter-runner who is legally running bases.

The Screamer5 - "within the baselines" is incorrect. Just remember, don't impede his running path. I know you "round" the bag when attempting to go to the next bag.

Discussion: Your opinion on best Senior Bat

"Benji4", oh yeah! Well I use to have Parnell's other signature bat (32 oz. Gold barrel with his name, 528 (HRs he hit in one season), and the word BAUXITE on it. Trying to retrieve it from a former EBO teammate that needed an ASA bat for league play. I'm not going to mention Jesse Vargas' name by the way. Will be seeing you on the circuits soon. Good luck!
