Default Stupidity. Shaved bats if your team wins

So our team won a tourney in north tx this weekend. I was just waiting till the shit talking started on our area message board. its started accusing us of swinging shaved bats. Does any other area have this problem?

its in all areas chance, people have been saying that about S2O before you started playing with them. A while back, they would only swing that freak and MV1. Not saying there shaved, I think S20 are stand up guys, but people question things like that. It didnt just start today though.

oh my god yes. it starts even before the game is over. if you hit a homerun more than 310' the other team starts chirping about it. the problem is that low-talent players can't respect what talent looks like and just automatically assume if you're better than they are you must be swinging shaved. it's not the 200 BP swings a weekend you take while they are at home on their ass, nope, it's the bat.

yea. pretty much everyone swung a brand new fx700 my z or my or my brother in laws red mayhems both are stock mines about to break so its hot like fiya.. bryce the ss i can tell u for a fact doesnt swing shaved hes tha one that hit tha pitcher in the shin. we think thats prally whos posting. or the pitcher for unique that came and hit bp with us one day and wanted us to come play on his team and we said no and now i know he cant hit anything except down the line and he swings shaved so he doesnt have any room to talk.. i almost hit him in the shin not on purpose and he stared at me the whole way down to first i looked at him and smiled.. people are stupid and now want us to enter the stock bat tourney lol..

your SS is just a big dude who can hit the piss out of the ball. I dont question any of your guys, thats how the sport goes, if we would have beat sinister, im sure people would have been talking.

It amazes me how no one ever blames the bat manufacturers ..


I have a question ... how do you honestly know if your bats are legal ? Just because you took the wrapper off of them and never touched them except for swinging them at an at bat doesn't mean they are not above the set limits.


Altered bats are a problem. No doubt .. but many many bats not only fail bat compression tests, they are not legal according to the rule. Not everyone tests said bats .. so instantly, a hard hit ball makes softball player (and others) wonder 'IF' ..

it's a good point, but the fact still remains is that the "losers" always tend to somehow blame the bats rather than conceding to the fact that they lost to a better team.

hell, we have a kid that uses this monster 14" glove at short stop, and if he makes a good play guys are like "yeah, nice glove..." It's like what dude? A guy makes a back handed stab and proceeds to throw you out while on the run and you're gonna take that away from him? maybe you should have been running out of the box instead of jogging down the line.
