    Swing Help

    could be relax, wait for it to get level in your zone during practice then transfer over to games. easy to get distracted, anxious listening to team mates cheering you on drowning it out may help

    Where are all the 28-30oz bats?

    the guys I play with swing what they like and most prefer 25-27 some smaller players hit them out the park with the same frequency of the bigger players with heavier bats leads me to believe ymmv the people i see breaking bats are those in a rush and tap their barrels against chain link posts lol

    Shoulder pain and numbness

    That soft toss routine sounds good. There's a guy that brings rubber bands to the ball park and uses them to warm up. Tried it and tightness and ache didn't occur, that usually followed long throws.

    Shoulder pain and numbness

    Google is your friend. My guess is if you take a couple of Ibuprofen and the problem goes away lucky day. If not, wait for a proper diagnosis before it falls off from playing softball.

    Onyx Enough Said

    Can recommend a bat warmer for cold days. There are the microwave bag type or solar sleeves. Using the latter may have been why I've only cracked 1 bat in 5 years.

    Why do I hit low or dropped balls so much further?

    a guy on our team does the same thing and someone says its because he is a golfer. hard to argue with success

    Back in the game playing Senior ball…

    Maybe find a local senior group that has BP and ask to try what they have. Most likely to find they have bats of differing barrel lengths and weights, bpf rating. Also balanced and end loaded. You might end up liking a two piece like the worth mach 1. Imo, Can't go wrong with discontinued...

    Have a hotter lineup?

    Imo, its not the bat but the batter. There's a guy with all the best senior bats, watches all the hitting vids and flew to FL for a clinic. Thing is he's morbidly obese, doesn't like to stretch or take the Dr. seriously. Just doesn't figure out why he can't get near the fence or guys don't...

    13 or 14 inch Glove

    Someone told me the glove should be an extension of your hand. Never really understood that until I tried on a 12" Rawlings infielders glove. Was using a 13, 14 and even a 15" in the OF. They all felt loose to downright sloppy. The 12 is so light and maneuverable the balls seem to get...

    Am I being a tool?

    Think its a control issue. Gettin in your head to distract. The more pitchers/catchers say usu just step back out the box then they have to wait for me lol. Just hit it hard and long they usu get the message and talk less.

    When a pitcher pitches from further back

    the further back, the longer one can take to eyeball the pitch imo and if more speed, more rebound! as long as its in the strike zone let the fireworks begin

    Coming out of retirement. Older, Fatter, Slower, Weaker and have questions...

    Some new guys we play with watch us hit hard shots and ask to borrow our bats and believe that the sticks are the magic wand. Somethimes they don't even ask.. We are reserved in telling them the stuff we use has been carefully researched, broken in expensive sometimes rare. They probably don't...

    Batting gloves? Best and most durable?

    Bought a couple pair of Tillman 1766 Abrasion Resistant Welding Gloves online. 13.68 shipped for 2 pair. Fit is snug while grip and feel is better than the receiver gloves been using. If these hold up around the thumb where it meets the palm a functional albeit unfashionable option.

    Batting gloves? Best and most durable?

    The silicone receiver gloves have good grip but not as thin as some would like. Haven't worn out any yet but the stitching thread has come apart with repeated machine washing and can be sewn back if you have steady hands and the skills of an eye surgeon. Would like to see a review of...

    Knee Replacement

    I know someone that is 6- '4" and 250 lbs. 72 y/o with one total knee replacement last year. Should the doctor have even done surgery on him? Seems his BMI is borderline obese ...
