in reading all of these posts I see a lot of the problem seems to in the 14 inch Dudley hot is the 12 inch having the same thing happen is the 12 inch breaking as much as the 14 inch still debating I would by the 12 inch because that is what I like

there is a solution stop buying the Dudley there is no guarantee that it will be replaced if we break one odds with it being new they will replace it once I have been swinging a legit u trip bat this bat has roughly 2500 swings no cracks some webbing on it why does senior softball not allow you to swing u trip not much difference accept price and bpf 1.20 to 1.21 don't here much about asa or u trip having this problem Dudley needs to stand up pull there product fix it then release it again

if Dudley will replace the bat how long will that take they pushed back there release date do they have product to replace in a timely manner and how soon before that bat breaks they are not going to keep replacing bats I am waiting for one to come in but now don't no if I want it they should recall and fix the problem then release a good product breaking 10 to 30 swings is unforgiven

Topic: Tournaments
Discussion: would like an explanation

why can't spa and issa and ssusa get together if a team is rated aa or what ever in one association why not be rated the same in all then when you would play a tournament there should be no higher ranked team playing in that tournament but it is still money that allows teams to play down because all associations want the money

Discussion: SSUSA Staff: Shaved Bats

ongoing problem there are egos so if i hit the ball 325 ft some one else has to go 330 or better every bat should be checked for compression there are some guys in our league that we all suspect if you are caught using one you should face a 5 year ban but if you hit someone with a shaved bat or altered bat a life time ban send the bat to the appropriate people pull the end cap you will know then for sure

Discussion: SCREENS IN TOURNAMENTS

17 sorry to hear about your pitchers 17 and i both play in a 50 and over in the same league and have seen some balls hit up the middle that some guys would not of caught and the screen saved them including myself whether it is time to use them in tournaments or not is something that will happen when a pitcher is laying on his back bleeding and having a hard time breathing then it may be to late guys hit the middle and that is part of the game that we have played for a long time i for one would not like visit a friend or be visited in a hospital the screen would protect wearing all kind of gear in steaming hot weather is not good for any body

robo 2 is right 5 guys hitting 5 straight ends the inning quicker than 8 guys batting also would keep the middle safer home runs are a part of the game

Discussion: Home run rule for handicapping

we play 50 aaa to me let the major and major plus hit all they want that way they stay in the upper divisions where they should be in the aaa should play with a walk after you hit your three if aaa teams start hitting a ton of walks then that team should be looked at being moved that is where official score keepers would come in play

Discussion: Mask or Pitcher Protection Screen

in our league we use the screen it does protect the pitcher dead ball on the first time you hit it strike the second time in same at bat the mask i believe may give them a problem seeing a ball hit at there chest or shin

Discussion: Positioning of screen protecting pitcher

our league uses the screen it is set next to the rubber the pitcher is suppose to step behind the screen when he pitches for his safety 52core 275 ball it does protect them but at the same time tournys do not use them i have been hit in the chest and in the rib area more than once i had 3 heart attacks in 2010 and do not pitch very often all being said i think the screen works for our league because some of the guys are older than 60
