Probably a stupid post, go ahead an flame me if so. Not necessarily a Miken question. Played ball Thursday against two related family teams we played a few weeks ago. First time both teams were barely hitting the ball out of the infield. This week every player on both teams were ripping the ball to and over the fence almost every at bat. Normally I always say it's not the bat it's the player, but both these teams most players are probably barely pushing 5'6" 150lbs. I've never seen anything like it. It was an amazing improvement from only a few weeks ago. A couple of the guys on our team were questioning the brand new looking bat they ALL were using as it looked brand new, they wondered if it was a senior bat or something. I got to see it, has the USSSA stamp, its a bright orange Miken, looks like either the 2018 DC41 or the the 2017 SSUSA Freak Platinum. But again, I saw the thumbprint stamp on the bat, so it couldn't be the Senior bat, unless they sell thumbprint stamps somewhere? What's the deal? Miraculous improvement? New Mikens super hot out of the wrapper? Possible rolled/shaved bats? These were both pretty rookie teams that were apparent to not know the game well, but I was amazed to see a couple teams of little Jose Altuve's (they were Pac Islanders though) cranking the ball every at bat after only a few weeks and only adding a new bat to the mix. Not complaining cause we lost. Actually we played pretty good for a change and went 1-1. Just dumbfounded by how they were hitting.
