    mine passed for lig the other night by a **** hair. Director said I had a good one. Then used it for 11 games in a tourney with most of the team using it, hitting 44 375s lol. End cap cracked, bout coming off, thing is hotter than my temper during a notre dame game. Surely its going back for warranty soon.

    I picked up a backup, but I'm gonna swing mine til she blows into a million pieces. The seam on mine hasn't gotten any worse.

    this is now (Sept just before worlds). 600 or so swings, 3 conference tournaments, and it has never failed a compression test.

    Mine is just a straight line. No real jagged edges like that

    1) i agree they are insanely hot. i dont know how they are legal.

    2) there have been a lot of bats that color, they wont ban that color. i dont pitch so i dont understand first hand the issue, however it does make sense that the bat color would be an issue if it is the same as the ball.

    I've pitched to a few of them, and never had a complaint about the color. But thats just me. If its a safety issue for someone else I'm ok with not keeping the color. At some point we all gotta realize its in fun and someone dying is bad for the game ha.
