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.

Heat expands.

Cold contracts.

Discussion: 2 FLEX or NOT 2 FLEX

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.

Discussion: Why have the mat?

Years ago when playing with the Silverbacks, we were the visitors and scored 27 runs in the top of the all you could get inning. The team we were playing wasn't going to score 27 runs in the whole tournament.

If I had the power, I could've hit for the cycle in that inning.

19. Agreed. When I could pitch to certain spots back when, it was really beneficial. Now, the batters have most of the advantages with the "senior bats". You only have one zone you can pitch to for the most part.

You can even hit a crappy pitch for gapper. Played a lot of U-Trip with my sons team, it was really enjoyable, especially with the 1-1 count to speed up the game.

Discussion: Why have the mat?

I would like on an illegal pitch, if you swing at it due to it not being called promptly enough, the batter should have the option of a ball added to their total count or the results of the batted ball............something similar to catcher's obstruction in baseball.

In reality, the umpire has put the batter in jeopardy.

How did we ever survive without the mat.[sigh/eye roll]

Discussion: Tanel cleats

I like the New Balance turf shoes.

What I did last year have a custom pair made from Adidas on their shoe website. You can design them any way you want.

They weren't turf shoes, but they were very comfortable when playing all day at a tournament two days straight.

Discussion: Why have the mat?

The other thread got locked and for good reason. Too much bickering about a rule actually being "enforced". Go figure

Why and when did it become necessary that senior softball uses a mat?

Remembered the first time I pitched in senior ball. Nobody told me hitting the mat was a strike. I kept dropping it in the catcher's glove who had placed it on the ground right behind the mat. I couldn't understand why that wasn't getting called a strike.........they were perfect pitches before.

Any positive input will be much appreciated.

I think there is a 45+ team out of Saginaw. Not for sure.

Discussion: What's the call?

As long as the fielder doesn't guide the ball to the ground, or anything to intentionally drop it, it's nothing. Batter-runner needs to at least make the effort to run to first even if they think/know the ball will be caught.

Don't know if it is true or hearsay, but Mr. Parker hasn't been talked about in too high esteem lately.

Hope you had good weekend.

Discussion: Favorite Baseball Movie

Dear Nancy,

There always seems to be confusion between, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Jamie Leigh Curtis. No offense intended to women anywhere. Oddly enough, nobody has mentioned, "A League of Their Own".

ARE YOU CRYING? THERE'S NO CRYING BASEBALL!

On a side note, Anthony Perkins who portrayed Jimmy Pierall, was also in Psycho.

Met Jimmy in the mid-seventies when he was briefly a broadcaster with the Texas Rangers.

He and Billy Martin were here at the same time. They talked about the fight they had in the Yankees clubhouse...........wow! Billy Martin in a fight!
