http://WWW.HENRYSBASEBALLCLUB.COM LOOKING FOR LEGION PLAYER'S THAT UNDERSTAND U NEED TO GO TO PRIVATE SCOUT WORKOUTS TO GET SIGNED, SEND UR PLAYER PROFILE TO UR LOCAL SCOUTS. JUST GOT OFF THE PHONE WITH ANOTHER WANT TO BE. HE THINKS A SCOUT IS COMING UP THE DRIVE WAY WITH A CONTRACT. THAT IS IN A MOVIE!! THERE ARE 20,000+ PLAYER'S TO REPLACE U IF U WANT TO STAY HOME. U TRAING 2 TO 8 HRS A DAY RELIGISLY OR FIND ANOTHER PROFESION. WHEN DWIGHT EVANS MADE A RUNNING CATCH AND THREW OUT THE SECOND RUNNER HE PRASCTICED THAT ABOUT 10,000 TIMES BEFORE U SAW HIM AT FENWAY. THIS IS NOT CHILDREN'S BASEBALL WHERE ALL GET TO PLAY!!
Hey guys, I would like to invite all of you to check out and join my page here on Checkswing. Paul Bunyan Bats offers high quality wood bats to all players! We are growing and looking to sell bats to teams all over the country. We have extremely competitive bulk discounts and extremely good wood! All bats are handmade! Check us out today!
Jim, the quality issue is because teams look for the cheapest wood available. You get what you pay for. We supply a few American Legion teams and they experienced minimal breakage last season. The reason is Victus sells the same #1 prime grade wood to kids, teens and all American Legion players from the same wood the big club pro's get. Most, if not all other bat companies use A & B grade wood that blows up easily, poor models that are slimmed down or old stock that is dried and brittle.
I've been either on the coaching staff or head coach of an American Legion team in metro Detroit (District 18) for years. For a lot of years at the winter coaches meetings I would bring up that our League should go to all wooden bats and I'm shot down. Every time It's the wooden bats break and the cost of a number of wooden bats would add up. If you know to hit with a wooden bat, they don't break that easy. I would like to see the day where the whole American Legion baseball, Nation wide, would go to wooden bats. Maybe that's just me...
All players beginning at age 12 or 13 should be swinging wood all the time. Swinging wood develops a much better swing, better muscle strength and memory. Players developing a poor swing with metal will need to be re-trained and will be behind players training and hitting with wood. Most travel teams and tournaments are wood bat now. If you buy high quality wood the breakage is reduced. Squaring up a ball with a wood bat drives it as far and as fast as the new toned down metal bats costing hundreds of dollars. Gregg Balin - Victus Sports
Our state is supposed to begin a slight transistion toward high school ball using wood and t would do great things for those who rely on the metal. The kids don't see the dramatic changes from metal to wood as I a coach does. They just want to complain and not work thinking they will soon get a metal bat game. Wood acros the board would not only show scouts how good a player really can be but also make the kids finally realize work comes with being a true hitter
The new college and high school bat rule will greatly change the whole complex situation of the the difference between making good contact or not and will also change the fact that the metal bat does the job instead of the batter, now all batters who have been exposed to metal bats are certainly going to have to be taught to and learn how to make a whole different approach with the whole body from the ground up combination of linear and rotational swing movement in order for the batter to reverse the hitting swing approach which will allow for the batter to do the work instead of the bat since the wood bat barrel and solid ball to bat contact area is much smaller, now batters are going to have to learn and refine an unfamiliar technique to their approach to contact instead of just going up to bat and swinging away at anything close and chinking the ball over the infield I am also convinced that the way the amateur game is basically coached and played will revert away from the long ball, big run innings back to Billy ball, Whitey ball, small ball which actually with enough runners on base can lead to several runs during any one inning.
