where has the game gone?
The senior bats have put a lot of excitement in the game. I was hitting with my 60 year old catcher, I'm 53 and play middle infield and not the biggest tree in the forest. Well he doesn't hit his UII in bp but decided to hit the remaining 10 balls with it. He went from his solid sounding Mayhem to his UII and the ball started to just fly out of the park,,, as usuall. A few of them he hit to high on center and they sizzled through shortstop. Nope,,, I want nothing to do with that grounder. I can hit my share when I hit the button with the UII but I guess because I am an infielder I get satisfaction out of defensive plays which is the reason they started slowpitch. I have paid good money for my ASA bat only to hit dummied down balls. The senior bats have made some people a lot of money and went back to the days when the pitcher dominated the game only now it is the techno-hitter. I know this dog has been beat but I had to get my observation in....Thanks and enjoy the sport!
