Senior Bomb squad of Seattle
Thanks to Bashbro 1 and the llovely Dianne
we had a blast in Seattle this weekend
with Ken Van Bogaert's NorthStar Productions
shooting scenes for his latest and greatest hitting video
to be released soon.
You REALLY don't want to miss getting your hands on
one of these babies(thanks Heather and Karen)
and the video won't be so bad either.
We had good weather for Seattle and hit balls 3 days in a row
in order to get the best shots in for Ken's project.

Special thanks to Ken for making all of this possible.
He's as good and generous a man as he is a monster long ball hitter.
Ken is modest but he's the longest, most powerful hitter
I've seen up close and he can really crush.
Speaking of crush, thanks to the Crusher, Tommy Brusca,
Donny and the rest for all the laughs and good times.

We had a blast, Bash and thanks again
for everything.

Hey Guys,
I forgot to mention
that 2 or 3 of us were using
the Senior Elite Rip-it bat,
the yellow one
and I got one 400 plus up onto the roof
with it.
If you don't believe me
watch the video when it comes out.

Any innocent bystanders or citizens hurt in the onslaught and barrage of bombs while filming in the Seattle area?

Awesome group of guys who hit in Seattle. Bashbro 61, Einstein 61, Tom Brusca 66 years old, 71 Jim Douglas..Joe did hit the roof, which woud take a 400 plus shot, all the others hit at least 380. Jim Douglas at 71 is a freak. He hit 4 of 10 once and hit a ball at least 380. He is in great shape at 6'3 and he looks 55 tops. Thanks guys, I sure appreciated it and the staff and spectators were duly impressed.
Also filmed some vegas guys. Mike Kelly hit his first 8 of 10 out and the infamous stoneman is as powerful as they come..and was on great behavior. I thought since he typed in caps all the time, that meant he was shouting, lol. He is nice guy and has excellent power. So does steve herd, who can bench close to 400 at 58 years fo age. thanks guys...your the real deals.

Bogie.Bash,Einstein,Tommy.Jimmie D. and Bud:
Thanks for picking me as a member of the "Senior Bomb Squad". I really enjoyed hitting with you guys last week. What a great way to get together and do what we love best. Bogie, thanks for the tip on the dominant hand/arm push. As we saw ,the results were immediate. I'll continue to practice it in Arizona this winter. Bogie, some of the bombs you hit onto the roof were amazing! Bud, great pitching, and you hit some great line shots up the middle! Einstein, or is it "Mr. 400' ? I'll see you in the World Masters in Vegas in two weeks. We can hoist a few and I can enjoy your rendition of "Lazy Mary" and also swapa few more tall tales. Tommy and Jimmie, keep hitting those line shots! Long "taters" forever.

Bash; A separate round of kudos to you for organizing a great event! I know you spent a lot of time organizing the "Senior Bomb Squad". You got your payback though. The smile on your face said it all when you blasted it off the ice rink wall! how's that for poetry? Keep those long balls flying!

I can say that Jim the Crusher hit's some long shots allready, now this winter if he is not on my team I have to watch his home run's go over the fence. I am glad you guys did what you did and had so much fun doing it good job.
