We won last night after losing 3 in a row.
2-3 .
first time up a solid single between 3rd and short.
second time up a solid line drive in the gap in center for a stand up double.
third time up I tell myself I'm gonna kill it and I pop up to the infield.

Whatever we needed to bring. We forgot. Two bad losses. Fielding fine. Batting ok.

Train for speed and strength and age won't matter as much.

Best of luck. I think Grape is right on the money with the strength and speed angle - make sure the legs(!!) and arms are strong, and waistline in check. But I'm pretty sure you have your shit together. You'll do fine. Have fun.  Smiley

2 games 3-4 each game.not my usual gap power yet but 6 hard singles up the middle.
We have a guy on our team that had swung the bat 6 times and had 5 homers.

..only reason his average came down was because last game we ran out of Hr's...only allowed 3 a game.

Shorthanded, only 9.

Go up 23-4 after 1.5 innings.

Don't score in innings 3-6, down 31-23.

Score 15 in top of 7th, win 38-33.  Nuts.

I remember in college playing intermural softball this tall skinny dude could jack home runs. It's all mechanics.

My last league had to supply the bats as well.

Corking is for wooden bats.....shaving/rolling is for the others.

Either way, I have no tolerance for that shit.    Pitchers could get slaughtered.

Some good mlb corking stories. I'm sure you guys know them all. I've heard about the rolling. Not the shaving? We, at one time, had guys putting fake labels on bats. That seems to have faded out. Haven't heard of that in years. Season (late) should start next week. Feel great. Certainly strong, but shoulders are a real issue these days. Kinda curious to see what gives re: throwing. Maybe I'll have to work on the underhand. I might pitch.

/we supply our own bats, as long as they adhere to asa, etc. regs. but i'm mighty sure i don't play to the standards you guys do.

I would never do it or be on a team that would.

We have three fields at the beach so it's a great place to have a cold one after the game Smiley

Agree.  The bats we use are lethal enough.
