Discussion: The new Senior Baden ball.

SKings - I agree with you on the comparison. Comparing to Senior balls out there the new Baden ball lags a good bit behind The Tattos that ISSA and now SPA use. Why SSUSA didn't just get there own version from Tattoo who knows. Maybe Dave can answer that. But will say this is the best ball SSUSA has used recently.JMO!

Steve - Ball is not bad not as good as the Tattoo comparable to the Usssa Pro M in my opinion.

tattooball - I asked you this question on an earlier post and got no reply. I am reposting the same question please respond. "tattooball - What cover is being used for this ball?Is it the same cover as the ISSA ball? If it is the same cover Baden has been using the ball will be a dud in the heat!If it is the cover used for the ISSA ball it will be good. Please inform on this. Thanks!"

Discussion: Dalton balls?

Dave, Not trying to beat SSUSA up on this post was just curious as to what we would be hitting. Didn't see the post on the other tourney.

coop - I have a long drive as well, but I would rather to not have to take an extra day off from work for one more game. Just my opinion!

Discussion: Am i wrong to think this way

stick8 - No pass/fail number for senior bats as of yet. Nothing done if pitcher or anyone is hit as of yet. You have to pay like a $250.00 protest fee to protest a bat and what are they going to do take a look at it? No explanation by any of the senior organizations on the process to have a bat tested that is protested. As I said no current deterrents in place at all. Compression testing would be a start!

What's the purpose of the 5 game guarantee? Why not just do 4 game as most others do?

mck71 - So a confiscated back was looked at by either the tourney director or UIC and determined not to be altered and gave back. If that was the case as I said this is part of the problem you can't tell if a bat has been altered by just looking at it. And bat testing although not perfect will help in some fashion and yes the pass/fail would have to be lower than 240.

Agree with stick on this one. The problem is none of the senior organizations make it simple to expose the cheaters. The protest fees are ridiculous so there isn't much of a deterrent. I hope all senior organizations will go to bat testing soon. It's not that expensive for bat testers. Mt .02 cents worth!

stick, No once runner is tagged past commit line that runner is automatically safe and doesn't have to cross scoring line.

Steve, You could have just asked me!! Yes runner is safe, once he crosses line if fielder tags him he is automatically safe.

Discussion: What's the call?

Calls like this are called incorrectly a lot. It is a foul ball always where the ball is located at touch never where the player is.

Discussion: Dont blame SSUSA for the ball problem.

The tattoo ball SPA and ISSA use are great balls. Not sure if these are the ones SSUSA will be using or not. The dud SPA ball was when they switched to a different Baden ball.
