    Are Leaders Born Or Made?

    Leaders are created. We are all creatures of our environments. We are all influenced by different things. Who your parents are, what they believe in, relatives, circle of friends/piers, schools you attend, teachers, neighborhood etc... If you look through history leaders are groomed from an...

    When do the 2021 bats come out?

    I would expect to see 2021 bats start rolling out in June. Slugger, Demarini, Rawlings, Mizuno, Axe, and then most likely Easton, Marucci later in the Summer/Fall.

    Ringor cleats?

    Bandit 2.0 arrived today. Nice looking shoes in white/navy. Pleasantly surprised very similar in weight to NB Velo cleats. I believe the Dynasty 2.0 are the heavier of the two models 2oz or so heavier. Thanks for all the feedback. Looks like pretty much 50/50 on like/dislike.

    WTB WTB 14” Slowpitch glove LHT

    Maybe it was another bat. So due to weight, length, stamps, and association specific bats SP bats generally not suited for FP. Gotcha thanks.

    WTB WTB 14” Slowpitch glove LHT

    Core- Is there a slowpitch bat that can be used for Fastpitch that is better than Ghost Advanced? Seems I read something about an Ambush bat? I know slowpitch bats are less expensive are they more durable?

    Help finding a face mask for pitching

    Yeah real nice MIB. A fictional comic book metal. Maybe they should make Fastpitch bats out of it. Nah... You would find a reason to toss them anyway.😜

    WTB WTB 14” Slowpitch glove LHT

    Yeah I don’t care for those pull straps. The Worth players series looks decent in black with gold stitching I just think the TPS is made of better materials. I’m thinking I may just use my catchers mitt to play catch with the kids. Plenty of padding there. A little less reach but I know what I...

    Help finding a face mask for pitching

    According to my limiteresearTI According to my limited research TI is the strongest metal known to man for it’s strength to weight ratio. Perhaps Adamantium is a heavier metal? Or very rare? Don’t know never heard of it to be honest. Remember a revolutionary aircraft called the SR-71...

    WTB WTB 14” Slowpitch glove LHT

    I only want to be in it for around $100. I found a Slugger TPS 14” that retails for $170 for $95. Supposed to be all top shelf materials. In black & gold but no dual welting and pull straps instead of Velcro closure. I like Velcro closure & dual welting. Easton El Jeffe for $84 no closure and no...

    Ringor cleats?

    Yeah wouldn’t that be nice!!! This DD is a line drive hitter doesn’t quite have yard power yet. Just don’t want her going the opposite way to RF getting a clean hit through or over the IF and get thrown out at 1st by OF. 🙂

    Help finding a face mask for pitching

    Glad to hear it. You may want to return for youth size. My 14yo DD’s still wear youth size for batting helmets, catchers helmets & fielding masks. It’s a great product. Much better/lighter than Rip-it and others.

    19 Sluggers defective?

    The Advanced is definitely better than all the other Ghosts. More pop, and hopefully more durable. We were on a larger field on Monday used for HS secondary field and slowpitch league. 260” down the lines and 276” to center. DD # 1 was one hopping the fence with Adv to LC & C. Lowest backstop...

    19 Sluggers defective?

    The issue with the glue/resin coming loose is that in my experience they don’t rattle all the time. Almost like they find their way back too the place they broke away from or a hollow spot. My guess is that it’s “extra” resin/glue that made it past QC. I understand your in a tough spot and your...

    19 Sluggers defective?

    Yeah free stuff does happen as an enticement to stay sometimes. What do you feel more flex and less feedback in Xeno vs 1 Pc Carbon?

    19 Sluggers defective?

    That’s good I wouldn’t expect any. Just a lemon I guess. I was going to say don’t tell me you reached into your pocket with those alligator arms and watched the moths fly out of the old wallet. Then I read “for free”. Better than her old Marucci?

    19 Sluggers defective?

    Gotcha thanks. We also practice with a broken Ghost.

    19 Sluggers defective?

    What size/weight? Ours was 32” 22. She loves the bat and wants the exact same one again. I’m thinking maybe go with a drop 9 2020.

    19 Sluggers defective?

    Yeah MIB the rattle is due to resin/glue coming loose and moving around inside the barrel. Not a safety issue just an annoying sound. Doesn’t effect performance at all. The cracks in paint/composite are what get my attention. Don’t want a “blowout” during an at bat. Honestly the bats rarely do...

    19 Sluggers defective?

    Yes White/Gold bat had maybe 100 swings on it. Was always stored inside along with the balls we hit. It was below 60’ but the other bats held-up fine. The 19 Xeno we got over a year out of and several thousand swings. Not really upset about this one but will try and get it replaced via credit...
