NEW PLAYERS - IMPORTANT INFORMATION
If you haven't already invested almost $200 in a bat, please try some out at batting practices, Wednesdays at 8:30. There are several popular manufacturers, bat weights and loading variations. Try before you buy.
One good place to purchase bats is via our website for used bats. New bats may be purchased at Direct Sports. If you choose Direct Sports, don't order online. Call their toll-free number and tell them you are a senior softball player. They will give you a 10% discount.
Do plenty of stretching before you play, especially if you haven't played in a while, to reduce the number of hamstring, groin and calf muscle injuries.
Have fun;play safely..
