    Swing Help

    For me, what I have noticed when my back leg collapses, I'm not getting a good weight transfer to my front foot and it all just drops from there.

    Where are all the 28-30oz bats?

    You can still find some end loaded bats in a 30oz. I swing balanced and swung 30oz for a long time until they weren't being made anymore then I dropped to a 28oz balanced and have used those the last 5 or 6 years or so. Once I reached the ripe old age of 50, I just stuck with the 28's although...

    I second that for trail runners. I've used them for several years and not had any issues with my footing in dirt or grass.

    2022 Easton Helmer Senior 28 oz EL

    I will say that Easton Sr bats don't get a whole lot of love or at least they're not what the cool kids are swinging;) I've played Sr tourney ball for 2 years and love mine. I've tried most and just keep coming back to the empires I have and they have had great durability for me. How much of...

    Injuries

    Managed to be fairly lucky with no major injuries until my 40's. The worst, I was 49 and running to first. Stepped in a hole, blew my hamstring, fell and shattered my elbow.....I didn't even notice my elbow was hurt because the hamstring was so bad until I realized I couldn't move it. Wound up...

    First time back out after dealing with a stress fracture in my foot. Couldn't get any consistency from timing to pitch selection but hit half way decent over the weekend. Hit one in the hole that the SS made a great diving play to just get the force at second, I made it to first. One or two...

    2021 ISA Senior World Series - Columbus, IN

    I forgot about it as well. I was #44, EH and played 1B towards the end of the game (I'm a bigger guy). Great game btw, it was fun time, just wish we could've gotten that last out just once in those last 3 innings....Saw you guys lost the next one and took 3rd. A good showing for the competition...

    Turfs of choice?

    I have mid/high top Altra's and Hoka One's. Both are great. Had a bad ankle injury last year and had to look for those. Very happy with both.

    Turfs of choice?

    Saucony, Altra, Hoka, and Brooks all make really good trail runners that are great for softball. Pricier but worth it IMO and out last most others. I've tried the New Balance turfs but they just didn't feel good on my feet but I see a lot of them out there with the Sr guys who seem really happy...

    What are your gamer bats this year???

    I still love my Easton Empire so I'll be gaming it. I did finally get around to putting a few swings on the Adidas and Miken I have and I definitely like them too, but I'll stick with the Easton's for now.
