SilverGhost,

Other animals are also attracted to greasy sponges. Very inhumane, and not very thoughtful. We used to board horses, and I made sure personally they were always put up at night secure and in the barn. Had a couple of geese, with a very good shed to put them in at night. Had a big silver wolf come up one night, but with all the sounds the geese made, and my brother shooting his shotgun in the air. Never saw it again. I suppose it went back down to the creek where we used to find many of their tracks.

Why cottontail rabbits were put on this earth. Wolf food.

FYI ~ They are hunting the crap out the wolves, and they will become extinct if we're not careful. They are very vital to the ecosystem if you believe or not.

Hey, Fred or Mad Dog. How about a 2014 Easton SP14B3 brand new for $100.00?

Fred S,

All bats MUST have the ASA certification on it. Makes little sense to me since U-Trip and ASA have basically gone their separate ways.

I wish you would allow comments. That way people who are NOT associated with this site could discuss things. You could also provide feedback to posters.

I understand not reading idiot comments. Just block them, or remove their comments.

Just my $0.02...........keep the change :)

Discussion: ASA Bats

The rules say .52/300. However, their minutes from a meeting say .44/375.

Believe me, when I say these people are anal to the max.

I thought all the new ASA bats were tested using the .52/300.

All the newer bats are around $250.00 to $300.00. I have found some of the older models fairly reasonable.

It is beyond me when one bat is banned, and all the others are okay for use.

Here is a link to their website. The minutes of Nov. 2014 say .44/375, and the rules say 52/300.

FYI ~ I have to play in the B division now. Two teams in the A division have desolved. My team decided to move down to the B division.

What is the best ASA approved bat going today? I had to start playing in a day league with geriatric babies who think the ASA Miken Ultra that came out in 2013 is too hot, so they banned it.

I played a few years back, but I couldn't handle all the bickering and arguing. Beginning to wonder if I want to play all now.

Anyway....................thanks in advance.

Discussion: batter's box

Hold your hand up, and ask the umpire for time to get settled in the box. Some like to quick pitch as soon as both feet are placed in the batter's box, or even a split second sooner than that. In baseball that would be called quick pitching. IMO ~ the umpire needs to control the situation by holding his hand up to designate "don't pitch" and signal the pitcher when they all are set.

FYI ~ Many softball rules are exactly the same as baseball rules.

When we lived out of the city limits, I always put up my animals up at night. It is more than likely wolfes as this species is constantly being hunted and killed. Many predators have been displaced due to human population growth in their territories.

There isn't really much else you can do except trap these animals for release in a more remote location, or kill them yourselves.

Discussion: Travelling question

A few suggestions: Don't take a bag with straps unless you can carry it on. Remove the straps if possible and place in bag.

Don't take luggage that is overpacked. Some suitcases pop open even if locked.

Always have your name and address on your bags.

Bags that zip are your best bet. Place the little locks on them, and try to not LOSE THE KEYS!

Don't put anything in your bag that is breakable. Remember to close all lids on anything you carry. Putting things that might leak should be put in a plastic bag.

Do not put money or expensive items in your luggage even if you think your bag is secure.

Try not to take more than what you need clothes wise. Most hotels and motels have washers and dryers. Toiletries can be easily purchased when you arrive. Remember most things such as shampoo bottles are allowed in your carry on.

Don't take your pet(s) unless absolutely necessary. It is very traumatic on the animals if they are placed outside with all the engine noise, and elements from the weather. long delays just make that much harder on the animal The bins are cold and dark. Turbulence can frighten the animal, and cause them to hurt themselves. It is really best if you have a sitter or board them.

Try not to carry on so much you have a hard time walking. Most baggage claims are so far away, the luggage is already there by the time you arrive at the claim area. It is also very hard to navigate the aisles. Bags with rollers are usually best.

It is best to stay seated if you are in the rear of the plane when you arrive at the gate, unless you just want to stretch.

Don't leave your luggage unattended if possible especially carry on as they don't have destination tag on them.

Keep your bag tag stubs readily handy so you can don't to dig for them, or keep them secure in a pocket as not to lose them.

Don't wear anything metal if possible, and remember to leave all sharp objects (pocket knife, fingernail clippers, etc.) at home. Try not to travel with your car keys unless necessary. It usually is better to get transportation to the airport if possible.

Please remember to put your cellphones on plane mode, and turn off all electronic devices.

I don't tip Red Caps (your prerogative) unless they actually do some work for me. All they do is throw it on the conveyor belt mostly. That's what they get paid to do.

I might have left out a few things, but common sense should advise you as to what is best for your traveling needs.

Don't make stupid comments that can make others suspicious of you, or cause you to miss your flight altogether. Most of what is said is taken very seriously by TSA.

I used to work as a baggage handler, and I've seen most of what I described either working or traveling.

Try to relax, and have a good time. You're on vacation!

Discussion: Status of the GSC bat

Dear K9er,

Many people hide behind the guise of being Christian. Seems as if some got caught up the in the name of Christ and capitalism. Others hear that and think to themselves, "What could go wrong?"

In my case, I don't need to read something written several centuries ago to know right from wrong. Is the only thing in a motel room that isn't bolted down. And is the thing that has caused more pain, death and wars in all of the mankind.

"When I die, I want to go to Heaven, whatever the Hell that is." ~ Ayn Rand, on the Christmas card she sent me.

Your mileage may vary.

Have a Happy Kwanzchristmakkah.

Discussion: Mikens New Ultra II Black debuts.....

OZ40,

I don't usually peruse each and every post because the software is so antiquated you can read the same posts over and over until you get to the one you want to really read

Question. Is the red Mikan a 3 oz. end load? I don't recall.

FYI~ I have a Dudley 1/2 oz. end load, but have found the sweet spot extremely small. I bought a Dudley balanced late in the season and it seems somewhat better than the balanced Mikan Ultra II.

I have found it somewhat difficult to compare bats when I have to play with different brands or compression balls.

I haven't been the picture of health lately, so my swing hasn't been really consistent. Hard to tell when you can only swing using your upper body for the most part.

Everybody have a Happy Kwanzchristmakkah. Yeah, I said it!

Question? Are there now three new Miken two piece bats on the market.

One balanced. One end load (how many ozs.). One max load (3 ozs.)

I don't take my bat into the pool. I just lay it on the lounging cars for everybody to admire.

Discussion: Bat Selection Question

I would say the Dudley 12". It does seem to have a smaller sweet spot, though. I have hit the ball hard with the Dudley, and they are plenty durable.

I don't know anything about the 3 oz. end load bats.

If you want bat flex, you should be able to snap your wrists through the swing. Harder to do the older you get, though.

I've been telling people this for a long time. Nobody ever paid attention.

Heck, if an engine block can crack in cold weather, why not a bat? I've seen section rails on a railroad track expand in hot weather so that you had to beat the ends of the rails back with the replacement rail to stick it back in. Hard to do when the replacement section is 33' or 39', and four people.
