GREGG BALIN (VICTUS SPORTS) replied to Ralph White's discussion Pitching and Catching in the same game
"I talk to teenage players and see games like this all the time and the problem is usually the catcher or pitcher are the best all around player on the team so the coach tries to keep him in the game.  This is an issue especially in summer when…"

GREGG BALIN (VICTUS SPORTS) replied to Juan Baret's discussion Broken bat incident at Fenway Park in the group Wood Bat Makers
"Many make great points here and one in particular addressed teams and colleges trying to buy the lowest priced bats they can.  This is a formula for a disaster not only from an injury standpoint but from poor performance as well.  We are…"

GREGG BALIN (VICTUS SPORTS) replied to Jim Doyle's discussion Bat size for youth players
"Jim, we do wood bats for 9 year olds in 29/20  and they are very durable and best for kids to train with. They run about 85.00 with shipping and are customized with any color finish and personalized engraving.  If he doesn't have a…"

"Hey Ryan:Here's the best advice I can give you and hopefully it's not taken as me trying to keep you out of the wood making portion of the business.  You should have someone like us turn your models and ship you the unsanded bats with…"

"I've seen a few and had a pro player of mine using one and he said it wasn't worth swinging."

GREGG BALIN (VICTUS SPORTS) replied to Mike's discussion Wood Bats
"Mike:I'll make this as easy as possible.  Victus Sports has only  #1 grade MLB approved wood and is a wood bat supplier to nearly 200 pro players and is MLB licensed and tested.   While others brag they have pro wood, Victus only…"

GREGG BALIN (VICTUS SPORTS) commented on The CheckSwing Clubhouse's group MSBL/MABL
"Simon, we already ship to Australia so we can handle anything needed.  Also, we use only #1 grade split wood, hand boned, and have a very hard & high gloss specialty formulated finish that will virtually eliminate balls marks on the wood. I…"

GREGG BALIN (VICTUS SPORTS) commented on The CheckSwing Clubhouse's group MSBL/MABL
"While on the wood bat discussion I'll add my 2 cents worth again. Composite wood bats and  bamboo's, etc are not comparable to a good wood bat.  Some composite's have a thin hollow plastic tube inside with a rubber type…"

"I just had to jump in on the metal bat ( I classify anything other than wood as a metal bat here) issue going back to the late 1980's.  I was there as well for the founding of the adult baseball boom as well.  I agree that metal had a…"

GREGG BALIN (VICTUS SPORTS) commented on The CheckSwing Clubhouse's group MSBL/MABL
"Will: Thanks for your comments.  MLB approval isn't just about paying a fee. MLB has an independent company that we have to send bats to for testing.  Bats must meet certain density standards and we have to report where we buy the…"

GREGG BALIN (VICTUS SPORTS) commented on The CheckSwing Clubhouse's group MSBL/MABL
"I'd like to jump into the wood bat discussion from an informed point of view.  If you purchase a high quality wood bat you first need to be informed as to what you are buying.  #1 - Buy from an MLB approved provider, #2- Know what…"

GREGG BALIN (VICTUS SPORTS) commented on Marty Callaghan's group American Legion Baseball
"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…"
