Topic: Bats
Discussion: White enough said,

Senior bats are as responsive as the person swinging them. If you are in the 80 years + catagory, 80/85 exit velocity sounds about right. Good luck on finding a bat that increases your exit velocity into your expected range.

Here we go again, gary c comes on the message board to spew his, or her, accusations or displeasure of some team, person, or circumstance that he is fed up with. gary c always complains about, and has first hand knowledge of teams breaking up, coming back with the same jerseys, sandbagging, or committing some egregious violation of picking on lesser teams..
Attach a name to the teams or people you are accusing, and while your at it, tell everybody who you are. Anonymous posts like yours are always filled with hyperbole, contentions, and innuendos.
Welcome back, your disdain and anger have not diminished since 2011.Oh well, "You can't change the spots on a Leopard"

Discussion: no respecting to softball players

New Rule: If you are going to bash, belittle or talk negatively about a specific person on this message board, you must identify who you are.
Slandering a person would hold more credence of believability if the person claiming the behavior or incident would identify themselves. For all we know this could be written by an Ex, or someone with a personal axe to grind against another.

Discussion: Intentional walk used to nulify a dominate hitter.

Most pitchers are ego driven and the most difficult to deal with on the team. My solution is, walk the pitcher every time he bats, and the problem of him intentionally walking or not pitching strikes to a specific hitter will handle itself.

Discussion: Bat reviews

My opinion on this is my opinion. Don't be offended by its content. Establish your own opinion based on personal preference, experience and knowledge. I do not represent any company who manufactures bats or sells them.

I choose a bat based on several issues. 1-cost, 2-longevity, 3-reputation of company, 4- Reviews from someone who does not have an agenda to sell bats, and 5- My personal experience with the bat.

I want to see reviews from the hardest swinging seniors using the bat I am looking to buy, not to see how far the ball goes, but to see how it holds up to extreme conditions.

I see players getting all caught up in looking for the newest best bat that will make them a better, more powerful hitter. NEWS FLASH, if you are 50-100 years old and don't
already posses a powerful swing, no bat is going to change that, thems the facts guys.

To become a better hitter takes effort in the gym, on the practice field, and years of investment into softball hitting technique.

With all that said, about 90 percent of senior players could choose any currently available senior bat no matter what brand, and be just fine in their choice.

Confidence and mental approach in what you take to the plate is far more important
to your success than stressing over what bat you have in your hands.

Discussion: Fuse or not to Fuse

Reg, Tape the wrist in question and see if that helps the pain. Don't fuse the wrist unless it is the only alternative (per your surgeon). What results are you looking for?
"Sometimes painful" sounds like what every guy over 60 that is physically active experiences on a regular basis. You never want to fuse a joint that gives you flexion, extension, and rotation unless absolutely necessary for all aspects of normal life.

Discussion: Player ID’s

Papajoe56, Could you expand on how it was obvious...? maybe others could take advantage of your observation skills?. Also, if you were sure this was going on, why did you not alert an onsite director.
