I filled in on a woodbat softball team...tough to hit!



.....regular team scrimmage on Sunday....season starts 4/29.

I tried hitting with a wooden bat.  Couldn't do it.  One of my teammates had this huge bat from Chicago that must have been about 40+ oz.

Apparently, Babe used a 48-oz. bat. Pfft. I used one a few years ago - my hands are still ringing. ;D

I've heard about those in NJ.  Is the ball called a kapoc?

I played in Chicago once with the 16 inch ball they use and no gloves.  Now that sucked.

 :o  I tried using heavy bats, but I guess I'm not man enough to hit very well with them.   :)

That sounds a good night to play right field and hide some drinks outside the foul line so when things get boring you got something to do.

Probably sipping some spiked punch on the bench, in that case you got got to hit a home run only way to score.
