Have you ever noticed how many major brands of softball/baseball equipment there are?
Rawlings, Wilson, Mizuno, Miken, Franklin, Louisville Slugger, Demarini, Easton, Worth, Dudley, Nakoma and I'm sure I'm just scratching the surface. Are there any other sports or hobbies that have so many manufacturers competing for our dollars?

Cannot fault their logic. How many 70 plus guys do you know that play in basketball or football leagues? Are there any leagues for those sports for 70 Plus men or women. Softball/baseball is the the most popular sport for all ages. When I was very young, I never dreamed that I would be playing softball after 40. Here I am 63 and still playing and having a great time.

Our area (Central valley, CA) has 'clubs' for most other, tennis, volleyball, basketball, BB, bicycling, track etc. Have not personally watched their games but know they exist.
Most are geared for the younger ages or middle aged but I know many above 70 that are involved.
If they 'make it' , someone\somewhere will buy it.

I've always thought about this's pretty crazy how many options there are. Golf has very distinct front runners but those companies also come out with a new driver or putter every couple months which is their way of competing for our dollars.
