Discussion: Looking for 60s team

will be 63 next year, I'm 6'2" and around 215 and in good shape. Have played over 40 years the last 30 pitching. I can run around the outfield but I have very little experience out there. SS is only spot I have zero experience. I've been playing AAA but I think ISA and maybe one other list me as major. I will hit over 700 consistently. HRs will come and go. I don't like to waste my time or my $. I do the best I can !00% of the time and I expect the team to do the same. I rarely drink, maybe a beer with a meal, I don't argue with umpires or players its a waste of breath. I know its senior ball and that requires lots of traveling but i do have my limitations. I live in Kentucky. Most of my playing is done in Ohio Indiana and Tennessee but don't mind one long trip a year. Email is Ronaldburke236@icloud.com Thanks

Discussion: 61 year old

was going to sit out this year but i just cant do it. my team from last year folded after their second tourny so no going back there. I live in KY and would like to hook up with a KY team if possible. Been playing 43 years. Most of that has been spent pitching but i can play other positions, some better than others. Im in good shape and can run for myself, and even though i havent been playing i have been hitting. I will hit over 700 and will hit an occasional home run but only on accident. I pitched with TOUCH EM ALL for 2 seasons in 55s and mostly EH with CHAMPAIGN SOFTBALL in 60s last year. email is Ronaldburke236@gmail.com

Discussion: Bat reviews

I don't know about reviews but I would like to see more bat demo days I can actually attend. I saw Tanner on youtube doing a bat demo day in florida. lol not exactly a drive across town for me. Show up swing all the bats and know what you are getting before you buy. im disappointed when I order a bat that claims to be end loaded only to find myself wondering where the end load is.

Discussion: Net for Pitchers

If the game is safer its more fun. If its more fun more people will want to play. screens should be mandatory. Face masks on all infielders should be mandatory. If a batted ball hits the screen it should be an out. If a thrown ball hits the screen it should be treated as throwing the ball out of play, the base you are running to plus 1. If you don't want the pitcher to make plays DONT hit the middle. There should be more defense in the game anyway.

Discussion: New Dudley

how do you get a shipment of these bats but get no 28s? I'm very disappointed. I messed with direct sports for 2 months with nothing to show for it then I take your word that you get your bats today and will ship me one. then I'm told that you didn't get any 28s and ill have to wait on Dudley to ship me one. very disappointing. whether I get it or not I'm done with Dudley. I've got an Adidas and I can't imagine a bat being any hotter than it is. now my wife texts you and says please tell me the bat will be delivered by Wednesday and your response is ILL CANCEL YOUR ORDER.very disappointing

Discussion: 2018 1and 2 piece Hyper Z endload

Tremor is right. I have a red one piece 28oz The heaviest endload ive ever felt. It took some getting used to but when i did the balls just keep flying. That endload just drives the ball. I went from doubting my decision to buy the bat to swinging nothing else. It will be stiff at first just dont give up on it.. Make up your mind that you are going to swing it and do it. Ive hit some tape measure shots with it. Probably not a base hitters bat because of the endload. The best part? $80

Discussion: New Dudley

I also pre ordered from Direct over a month ago. I was expecting it to arrive this week and just happened to be on their website and saw they changed the ship date from Jan 15 to Feb 15. Now you say the end of Feb? Dudley may be forcing me to swing something else.

Discussion: Bordering State Rule

If the country is divided by regions why is there a bordering state rule for forming teams instead of making all players on the same team come from the same region?

How about an unlimited HR division? I believe Rick Sheer said defense is just a place you stand til its your turn to bat, anyway lol

Discussion: 2019 hyper z

Any louisville slugger reps out there? Ive been swinging the 2018 one piece hyper z. The red one. 28oz very endloaded. My question is will the 2019 two piece have the same extreme endload? I love this bat. Took some getting used to the weight but it just drives the ball.

Discussion: enforcing the rules

Started watching a game on youtube.First batter walks to the plate and deliberately rubs out the front line of the batters box. Umpire calls him out. Needless to say this caused a delay in the game. A needless delay. The umpire did his job. Was the batter or his team happy? No. Irrelevant. The umpire did his job. Hats off to the umps that know the rules and enforce the rules. ALL THE RULES.

Discussion: New Worth Wicked Pro XL Signature Series

What's the difference between your signature bat and the Jason Kendricks freak? I loved the one piece wicked but it blew up on me. I then started using the Kendricks and didnt think there was any comparison. The freak was super stiff and didnt sound like a senior bat. It took hundreds of swings to start getting that good sound and performance i was used to from a senior bat. I will probably wind up with another wicked but i'm a little hesitant to get another two piece bat
