Discussion: Best website for titanium necklaces?

The best investment I ever made...

I have been wearing 3 thick necklaces and 2 wrist bracelets on both wrists for 24 hours a day, every day, for the last two years.

Since then, I have gone from playing 70 AA to 50 Major Plus.

Discussion: How much difference does an ounce make?

I would think that if the bat speeds are approximately the same so the extra ounce wouldn't make much difference.

Don't know of very many 60-80 year old guys that run fast enough to slide. :)

Lets not get too carried away about the distance these Ambush bats hit the ball.

They are all still Senior Softball bats....
with the same tested and approved 1.21 stamp as found on all other senior bats.

These are slow pitch softball bats and NOT MAGIC WANDS!

If the Ambush is like most other Combat Senior Bats, it will interesting to see how long it takes for the end caps get loose or come off.

Discussion: The return of GSC #2

The more I read these posts the confused I get.
surf88 claims to have been at and seen the GSC bat factory in Charleston, South Carolina. surf88 called it "a factory".
So far so good!

The purpose of a factory is to produce or manufacture a product. In this case the product is softball bats. So surf88 by his own words must have seen bats being manufactured.
Still so far so good!

What I don't understand is what happened to all the bats that have been manufactured?

If the bat is "Coming Soon", then why can't I place an order?

Where is the bat factory?
Have the bats been tested and approved?
When will the bats be delivered?
When will the bats become available to the public?
Define "Coming Soon".

Discussion: WHO GETS THE BALL??


Like everything there is more than one way to look at it.

I don't know of any specific rule pertaining to this situation.

The outfielder in the field getting the ball after the play is over I believe is doing a courtesy, not a duty and is admirable.

But on the other hand, if the outfielder in the field goes 150' to get to the ball and goes another 300' to get into the dugout will obviously make him the last player off the field. If he is the first batter for his team in that inning, game time is being lost. If this is done several times through out the game, this could add up to a significant amount of game time is lost retrieving a dead balls. It would seem that the outfielder coming onto the field getting the ball would save time since he is going in that direction anyway.

Discussion: Any rules about location of safety screen?

Is repeating yourself all you can do?
You don't use facts, your just saying the same thing over and over only using different words.


Enough that old men insist on using the special bats or most of them will take their equipment and go home.

(b) Seniors insist on being able to use the special bats, hence ASA is now allowing them

ask your fellow old guys why they usually insist on using then or they won't play.


Blah, blah, blah...

Going by the numbers scientifically TESTED and PRINTED on the bat, the difference between the USSSA and Senior Bats is 0.01 or 1%.

Since Gary could only hit the ball 200' with a USSSA bat, given a few per cent margin of error, he will gain approximately 2-6 feet distance. Just because 200' Gary came to bat using a Senior Bat, the outfielders should only back up only about 10-20 feet.

For you guys that play outfield, how far will you back up if your told 200' Gary is now using a Senior Bat? 5-8 steps? Or will you back up all the way to the warning track?

IT IS A SLOW PITCH SOFTBALL, NOT A MAGIC WAND!!

I SEE NO ACTUAL ANSWER...
NO FACTS THAT SUPPORT YOUR COMMENTS.

So how about figuring it out in measurement?

If Gary can only hit a ball 200 feet using a USSSA (1.20) bat, then how much farther will Gary hit the same ball and every thing else being equal the same, with a Senior Bat(1.21)?

How far does Gary think he will hit the ball with the Senior Bat? 350'?
