Bats and cleats
Im joining a league after a five year break, I was told that we had to use ASA Senior Softball bats (it has to be inscribed on the label), where can I purchase these? Do turf shoes work well in the infield? Im not to comfortable with plastic cleats, thanks!

Either work just fine for me. You can walk around outside the field better with turf shoes.

CJ100 : A lot of us have fund trail running shoes to be better in traction, weight, cushioning and flexibility.

CJ100, just because a bat has the SSUSA label (not ASA Senior Softball) doesn't make it legal in SSUSA. You should look at the SSUSA approved bat list here:

Question. Aren't the trail shoes much more expensive?

Wayne : not always, at adidas outlets etc, sierra trading post online and many other places you can get trail running for the under $50 range. these are normally overstocks and have great discounts.

For instance my current adidas I aid 49.99 for. (they retail at $90.)

You can also pay $150 for a pair.

Purchased a pair of Salomon trail shoes a few years back. Light, comfortable, and stayed dry in rain for about 5 minutes before the game was called. Save them just for tournaments.

I usually buy last year's turf shoes. Generally about half off. I will buy a new pair as a lot of shoes can break down on the inside and don't really support the bottom of the feet.

As hard as the fields get, shoes don't really get that much traction. I bought a custom pair of Adidas rubber cleats as they are very comfortable and waterproof.

It would help a lot if they would water down the fields.
