Discussion: non prescription " polarized " sunglasses for softball.

Frank,

I can get you all the polarized safety glasses you want in a couple of weeks. About ten bucks per pair. Works great for me, and don't cost a ton of money if you scratch them up. I've worn them for a long time. They're great for driving also.

ju25,

I sent your list of the newly banned bats to the league president. They banned each of the Easton bats. They didn't really have much choice.

Probably gonna be some unhappy campers.

It wouldn't be so bad if they didn't piss and moan about which way the runner ran in relation as to where the thrown came from. They are like plays at first and home. All you have to do is catch the ball while touching the base.

I never got that message JBTexas, but I'm headed to Florida on the following Wednesday. Don't want to drive to SAT for one day, down to FLA for a week, and back down to AUS for one day.

Anyway, I've spent too much money lately as I finally decided to have the engine bearings my 69 Mach I fixed.

Mad Dog,

We have run through bases and use 11 fielders. Some of those guys are so brittle, I'm sure one of them would faint if a ball off a senior bat came buzzing past them.

Discussion: Batting Average or On Base Percentage

Softball might be better using OPS: the sum of a player’s on-base percentage and their slugging percentage.

I would measure OBP much differently in softball for sure.

Discussion: Batting Average or On Base Percentage

Bruce,

They were by far the oldest and the slowest on the team!

We could score runs in bunches, but our defense was lacking most of the time. The big hitters at the top were usually hitting with no one on base as they either went yard or had deep fly outs. Didn't make sense then to bunch them all up at 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6. Left for some open innings.

I just didn't like being left on base all the time when I could motor on the bases. At least, a long fly out could move a runner over into scoring position on a base hit.

OTOH~ I've been on a team where I was the offense. Knock in three runs and scoring two.

Discussion: OKRA FOR POSSIBLE DROP IN GLUCOSE/SUGAR LEVELS FOR DIABETICS ?

I saw you last Wednesday, Frank. You were a picture of health......jk

Proper diet and exercise are the best way. The okra "slime" might have something in it that helps Don't know. There is a drink called Glucerna that helps with diabetic diets also.

My big problem over the last couple years is a condition called gastroparesis. Might have to have some stomach surgery to correct the problem.

Take care, Amigo!

What date on a Saturday? Alex did mention a one day tourney in Austin on March 5th. I went to SA last year. I will be leaving for Florida on the 25th of this month and will be back on the following Tuesday probably.

Couldn't Murray recommend you to any team? He should have least done that much for you. You can always search Louisiana, Oklahoma, Arkansas and New Mexico.

I just don't know anybody out there. Relentless is supposed to be several different age groups, at least, I thought they were.

I'll check with some of my contacts, and try to get you some info. There is usually an early tournament in Baytown. Some of those teams might be looking, at least, adding a player.

Discussion: Batting Average or On Base Percentage

OPB is ...............................

On-base percentage (average) is the measure of the number of times a player gets on base via hit, walk, or hit by pitch, expressed as a percentage of his total number of plate appearances.

What’s a plate appearance you ask? Unlike an “AT BAT,” a plate appearance is counted every time a player comes to bat regardless of the outcome of that time at the plate. The statistic known as "AT BAT” counts only the times a player gets a hit or makes an out, while “PLATE APPEARANCES” count walks, sacrifices, hit by pitch, and so on.

Here’s how you calculate an on-base percentage: Hits+Walks+HBP/At Bats+Walks+HBP+Sacrifice Flies)

Disclaimer: No hit by pitches in slow pitch.

I used to bat 10th on a good hitting team. Several times I led our team in RBI's because I usually had people on base for me. The biggest difference I had was I didn't score many runs because the two batters behind me were weak hitters.

The manager told me I would have batted higher but I didn't cross the plate often enough. The bad thing was I was the fastest and probably the best baserunner on the team.

1.21 bats are for division A only. They just can't sentence structure very well.

@Mannjo ~ I can't swing an end load. Too unnatural for me. I have hit some with mine. It really still needs to be broken in. Think Imma gonna use it until they tell me not to.

They are going to us 52/300 balls.

Thanks, guys. All the info was very helpful. Stay healthy and have a great season.


Picture of the bat I will be using.

I didn't buy the Freak 98. Let him keep if he is so proud of his "used" bat. This is from their minutes from a meeting:

There are only 2 bats not approved by the ASA for senior play. They are the Miken MSU Ultra and the Miken MSUM Ultra Maxload. All bats marked with an appropriate ASA logo, or [improper conjunction used by them] have BPF 1.21 or less (1.20) stamped on them are legal bats.

My bat is the white Ultra that came out in 2013. It has no marking as to what they are calling MSU or MSUM. This bat doesn't perform anything like a 1.21.

The way they worded their rule, the last sentence implies that a bat just have an "appropriate" ASA logo on it.......mine done's........."OR" a bat must have a 1.21 or less stamped on them.


Maybe I should go to Earl Schieb and get my Ultra II painted purple with an ASA sticker screened on?

Frank,

You try it out for 30 days and tell us it how goes.

As long as you have it in writing, nor offered you insurance. They have it insured. Why must you pay double their premiums?

Thanks, Fred S. I'm putting a hard negotiating deal on eBay for a used Freak 98. He wanted a $150.00. I offered $85.00. He counter offered $140.00. I counter offered $100.00. Guess we'll see who blinks first. Bet he comes down to $125.00..........Let me call a buddy of mine who knows more about these bats!

@neck10 ~ DeMirini is too proud of their bats, and I've never heard people talk about them.........at least in favorable terms.

Have a good season, guys. Never know when it might be your last rodeo!!!!
