"Thanks, Chris. I'm all for using wood especially in a USA bats/BBCOR world, but it's hard to justify a wood bat for nearly $200."

Bill, thanks for doing this group.... I really like the format and the information you provide here

Thank You Bill

Wish I had known about this site sooner as I am heavily entrenched in baseball and related ventures. Coming soon a revolutionary throwing training system I’ve got about 30 years of study into. What it teaches and how I came to discover it is only half of the picture because this information and device refines the highest level MLB player or can establish a young kid in minutes. I hope to debut it here.

Bill contact me offline if you could.
