    Yep, I play in a city league. I've played baseball since I was 4. Played in high school and was recruited in college and played in college till I had back surgery. Now I can't seem to hit the friggin slow-ass softball. I swing the [censored] out of the bat and hit it off the cap. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif The other day I actually managed to hit the ball with the backside of the bat. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif Damn softball. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Well I have 3 bats now.. I have a Easton Reflex (old style), Worth ESTL (awesome bat) and my new bat is a Mizuno Techfire Fury. My league hits low compression cork center balls and the Mizuno bats are supposed to hit them good. I was going to get a Miken Ultra 2 but they are illegal in my league /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif

    When I worked in marketing for Play It Again Sports, I got one of those bats from Mizuno (free! /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif ) I liked it, but it was too short (30 or 32 IIRC). Like my Mizuno mitt, though! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Yea I would say thats short.. I got a 34" / 28oz. I haven't been able to put one over since we switched to the low compression cork balls so I need all the help I can get.
