Discussion: Foot placement in batter's box before pitch

Just an observation, since they made the plate a strike they have in essence moved the strike zone forward the plate length. Why not move the box this much forward to compensate for the plate now being a strike? Being 6'5" tall the extra 3-4 inches would take this out of the equation for me.

I had one that lasted about 400 swings. Good bat with good pop.

Discussion: Need a team

I sm posting this for an ex-teamate of mine. His name is Steve Roeder and he is looking for a 50 Major plus team east of the Mississippi river. Any one knows of a team that needs a good hitter with power to all fields let me know and I'll give you his phone number.

There are usually 5-8 Major teams in this tourney. We used to be the only Major plus team to attend. We always played the Major teams and gave them 5 runs. I'm hoping that many turn out again this year as the Major team I'm playing om will be there. LS 50 Major.

Discussion: Major plus problem

I believe that the only way to make it feasible for Major teams to move up is to get rid of the 2 out of region players for Major +. This would make it a more comfortable transition to plus. Like was said earlier in this thread most of the guys are taken that could be added to a Major team when they get bumped. I also know that the economics that it takes to play plus ball is the biggest factor in not having teams in tourneys. Teams that self sponsored do not have the resources to travel as much as required to play a good plus schedule. Lets face it, the plus division is what it is. Me personally believe that SSUSA and SPA have done a pretty good job at "trying" to make it better for everyone. I do wish that they would just duplicate the young kids ball as far as the HR rule. USSSA has done that this year. Their senior rule is Major 15 HRs and a DBW after that. A is 10 and a DBW, B is 8 and a DBW, C is 6 and a out, I did not look at the bottom 2 divisions. I for one want to make Plus ball a better division, but as I expierenced this past off season doesn't matter if you are a Plus player or not. If you don't have a team you will play on a Major team if needed. At least I will.

Reggie44 I swing the 12". I had a 13 in and traded a guy who like the 13 in better than the 12 so i now have 2 12 in. I have over 6 hundred swings on both of them, one I have about 800 swings and man is it Hot!! I love being able to swing them in batting practice.

Discussion: Hot Bats and Hrs

Our 50 Major plus team the last 4 years almost always hit our limit in games. I can remember only a handfull of times we did not hit our limit. But I will say that is the way our team was built. We had a 61 yr old who hit his share when needed. As far as the bats in BP, up until this year I always used a USSSA bat in BP. Now with the Dudley Lighting I swing it in BP as well as games because of its superior durability.

Discussion: Wondering about your team name; especially the unusual ones.

OKI stood for Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana. That is state where the original players on that team were from. At the end we did have players from Michigan and Illinois.

Just wanted to say thanks to Alan for putting this together, Davey, Carlos, Bob and Jason Kendrick for taking time to help out us OLD guys. I had a blast!!!! The camp would help players from the Plus division all the way down to just rec players. The information off the field was just as or more important!! I love it when I see someone 20 years my senior and come out to woek on their game. I was impressed very much by the professionalism of the staff and the mind set of all the campers. Definitley want to go back next year!! Thanks again staff!!!!

Just wanted show some respect for one of the greatest HR hitters of all time, RIP Craig Elliott. I remember one season his HR to AB ratio was 1.8 At the time I believe that was the best ever. That would have been around 1988 or so. I remember playing against him and Steele's in Oklahoma City at the Super Nationals in 89. The wind was gailing from left center to home plate 30-40 Mph. The only HR's hit that day was from right center to the right field foul pole. There were 10 HR's hit that day. Mighty Mikle Macenko hit 2 to right center, Craig Elliott hit 2 to right center, Steve Sharp and David Dale hit 2 to right field and I hit 2 to right center. After the game Craig came up to me and said something like "it took a real man to hit HR's today didn't Mayo." That was one only 2 times my team ever beat them guys. Craig was one of those rare atheletes that was able to handle the bat with power like only few could. Mighty Mike and his team mates could tell you the other "Crankerism." Prayers go out to the family in this time of loss.

Discussion: 50 MAJOR & MAJOR PLUS COMBINED

Tim, OZ, tattoo I agree with you totally. If I could find 10 guys who would pay their own way I would be right there with them. Tim you guys are really blessed to have that many tourneys you can play. East of the MS river I believe there are 5-6 plus tourneys available to us here that is a reasonable drive.

Discussion: 50 MAJOR & MAJOR PLUS COMBINED

Tim if you broke up Plus temas that win the worlds I believe you would have more Major teams and the reson is sponsorship. IF I had ever won Vegas and they broke my team up and I did not have sponsorship,like right now, then I would tell my guys that we should spilt up in 4's and play Major. Because our team would not be able to do the traveling like you need to do in the Plus division. I would rather play in 9-10 tourney's a year rather that 3-4 like I did last year. In our area there are only about 4-5 tourney's a year that you can drive to that will let plus teams in. Thats why we only played in 4 tourneys last year. You are right about it making more Major teams but I don't think it would make more plus teams.
