Played in my first senior league tournament a couple weeks ago and had a great time, but while watching I came to the conclusion that the only reason for senior league bats is for guys egos. Why else would guys over 50 need to be hitting bombs over 300' 8' fences? To me, it would be just as fun with standard ASA bats and a bit safer. At older ages, having the extra ball exit speed that a senior league bat has only reduces the reaction time that a defender/pitcher has and not be injured. I saw more pitchers and infielders wearing facemasks for just that reason, but that just shows they know they're not as safe as they could be. Been on here long enough to know many of you probably just think "you have a glove, so use it". I enjoy a good defensive game and more place hitting than a homerun derby, so less hot bats would be fine with me.
