Discussion: Batting

Corn, my suggestion would be to find a good hitter on your team or another that likes to take bp. While hitting, ask what he thinks you could do to improve, be it for power or base hitting.
You can't expect to improve much if you don't practice.
Another suggestion, get rid of the 25oz bat. :)

Anyone know of a good place for our 70 and 75 teams to take batting practice in Mesquite, NV? We are trying to schedule it for Saturday, Sept 19.
Thanks in advance.

I'm not an umpire but have run into this situation a few times.
I believe the infield rule states that the runners advance at their risk.
The runners remain at second and third, one out.

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:

Someone correct me if I'm wrong. I have been told the originals had a tacky surface down to the grip. The reissued bats were only tacky on the barrell.

I believe you meant to say SSUSA.
I can only think of two reasons why one would want to us an ASA bat in an SSUSA tournament. Well, maybe 3 or 4. ;)

Staff, is the Onyx senior bat approved for SSUSA play? I don't see it on your approved list but am told that it was allowed in the Masters Championships in Vegas in 2018.

At Softball Magazine's Senior Camp I attended a presentation by Bob O'Brien, a college pitching coach and, I believe, a sports therapist. He now plays with Team Kitty.
He recommended the shoulder exercises as presented by Dr. Jobe. They can be found with the help of Google.
The presentation was all about not working out Dad (Deltoid) and working out the 4 Kids, Supraspinatus, Infraspinatus, Teres Minor and Subscapularis. (Whew, I'm glad I still have the handouts he gave us.) To see the entire handout you can view it at our league facebook page, Georgia Elite Senior Softball.
The main thought, in my opinion, was don't use over 3 lbs in each hand and do 3 sets up to 30 reps each.
This past year I was diagnosed with a partial tear of the sprespinatus, fraying of the infraspinatus and labral tear. I'm fortunate that this is in my glove shoulder and doesn't affect my swing.
I just finished my second week of doing Dr Jobe's shoulder excercises, every other day and find a decrease in pain and increased movement in my arm.
I would suggest that if you have rotator cuff problems you check into this.
Hi Webbie and Joe!
