You want a piece of me Typer...joke. What's up bro.

If your fundamentals are right, the more strength you have the faster you can swing the bat through the zone. Some people have such strong fundamentals that they can hit for power without as much strength. Am I wrong?

I wish I had strength.

Maybe I could hit it out of the infield with my "shaved" bat.

I was shocked when you told me at Torrington that people thought my bat was shaved. Even more so that Cuse thinks one of our bats is too.

In that Torrington tourney the bat mostly used was Dave's bat, the green Synergy Stealth. That bat has the most pop out of all of our bats and I know Dave and I'm 100% sure that bat is not juiced. Anyone questioning, feel free to take a swing or send it away to be tested. When it comes back legit, all I ask for is an apology. I have no problem with people questioning us having a juiced bat but I'm telling you now that we don't. We have some strong dudes on the team. Strength = bat speed if used correctly.

You misread what I wrote I said a FEW guys swung a questionable bat and your not one of them but the 2 guys that bat 3 and 4 had no right hitting the ball that far with the swings they put on the ball. BTW you do a very good job pitching, how long have you pitched USSSA. I wont apologize because all I said is that it was questionable and heard that some teams were complaing the week before

I don't blame people for the accuations. We hit well that game. Your bat has alot of pop but its totally broken in. Over half our team can hit homeruns some just hit them a little farther than others. Tommy hit an absolute bomb that's when the bat was in question to begin with. Gags and Hickey were hitting the shit out of the ball to and so weren't some other guys but they always do. I would have accused to probably.

If it is my bat, then over half the team were swinging it. I just think they are all stronger and bigger than me. That's why they hit the ball a lot further than me.

Brian is a great pitcher. Just needs to work on the behind the back pitch we've been trying to incorporate into his repertoire. I'll bring my cup with me next time and relief you too B.

No bro, I'm not asking for an apology from you, just anyone that decides to send our bat out for testing. Our 3 and 4 hitters were using Dave's bat the whole time, honestly. I play against them in Glastonbury and they always hit the shit out of the ball. I'm not offending by you questioning the bats at all. As I said before I probably would to. Thanks for the pitching compliment. This is our first tournament team so its my first year pitching this way. I like it but it is scary some times when you got a dude 6'7" running through the box aiming for you. This is why I hate juiced bats
