Batting Practice Softballs
Would anyone be anyone be interested in purchasing new Super Duper blue dot softballs for batting practice. 47 cor, illegal for league/tournament play but good for BP. If so, call 1 205 631 4172, Mordecai Sporting Goods. Good price, large quantity available.

Just curious...I bet the Super Blue Dots are a great buy from Mordecai Sporting Goods...but why would you/teams want to use Super Blue Dot 47cor. when #1 Senoirs don't play w/Blue Dots, #2 using 47cors would certainly damage the Mikens, Launches or other Senior bats that are compsite material and #3 I wouldn't want to get hurt in BP by trying to field these things.
Heck w/an Ultra II/Launch/ USSSA bats and a Blue Dot a Senior could easily clear 320+ let alone some pretty sharp grounders to the infielders that obviously would be playing extra deep.
Just my opinion...but then again these Blue Dots would last a little longer than your avarage Softball.
Curious How much a Dzn?

Hey Stones, you are right, I'm sure, about the impact of 47 cor on the newer bats. I really was thinking more from the durability angle of the softball for BP purposes. They do last much longer than anything else out there.

I am not sure on the price, but I believe it would be a real bargain plus shipping. These are friends, who got caught in the middle of softball organizational wars a few years back--what was legal or not. Anyway, they do have a large quantity of the softballs and would be very fair about the price. Thanks for your interest.

there are a lot of tourneys here in Ca where the 47\525's are good to go. I have the Reptile Legend Centerfire2. I''ve been shipping these to the southern states and NY area for 2 years now. Have the 11 and 12" balls. But the shipping is the real cost factor here, that puts the balls back up to almost the original retail cost. \
blue dots are still seen but no Super Duper's I have some of those and the ole SB12LND's left as well.

Brings back the memories of yester years gone by.
Back in the day when you brought your bats to the park, they had good balls and you played and the best teams won No grumbling about illegal stuff.
Where has it gone...but anyway still love the game and as always Dyin Fo Play...
