Some common types of softball bats for your reviews

Before buying a softball bat, people normally have the same concern about the texture or the feel of a specific bat. The best softball bats should offer the greater stability if the user tries to swing it, even at the highest angle. Such characteristic can be considered as the faulty lack if we are discussing about the stability. In term of the correct balance, a user is able to hit a ball with the power and the precision.

Some typical types of softball bats you may know about are: alloy, hybrid, composite, two-piece, one-piece, USSA, ASA, etc. In this article, we will perform the brief reviews over some of them for your reference.

  • Alloy Softball Bats. This type of bat is often made from the combined materials, mostly the two metals. As a matter of fact, the aluminum material is also combined with other types of metal and results in a high-quality bat. The necessary requirement for a combined material is the quality which should be declared at an acceptable level to create the more strength as well as power for the final product. With such strength, the best softball bats are equipped with the thinner barrel which is also very effective in playing the game.

The main difference between the composite and the alloy softball bats are the numbers of materials made of them. The composite softball bats can be made from more than 2 substances.

Hybrid Softball Bats.

This type of softball bats involvestheunique and excellent combination of the two above-mentioned softball bats, the composite and the alloy softball bats. With the double construction of design, theirbarrelsareusually made of the alloy but their handle sectionsare come from the composite. Such advantage results in the lighter handle which make the users feel comfortable while swing. Besides, it allows them to reach a higher speed in using their bats. The construction of the alloy barrel with a longer dimension gives you another plus point to choose this type of softball bats.

  • Two-piece Softball Bats.With the completely separate construction, this bat type has two different pieces. The handle and the barrel are usually kept separately and only stuck together if necessary. This type of softball bats has a unique design which allows the barrel of the bats to move flexibly at the point of the contact. This feature leads to an effect with the trampoline function. The two-piece softball bats simply depress before springing again tothe original position right after it was used to hit a ball in a baseball match. With the less effect on the vibration, this bat type is nominated as one of the best softball bats.

In the opposite way with the two-piece Softball Bats, the one-piece Softball Bats are made of specific materials with similar characteristics.Its entire design brings the new advantage toward its users. You are properly looking for the best softball bats which can hit in a stiff along with strong way. In general, the players have to trade-off between the strong hit and its flexibility. Therefore, choosing the right type of bats can help you much in maintaining both the stiffness as well as strength when hitting a ball in the baseball match.

Country Road Classic – A Hard Win

This weekend Will and I travelled up to Palmerston North for the Country Road Classic and I’m really stoked to say that we pulled off the win!

After Tour de Lakes at Easter and then two hard races on the West Coast last weekend I was pretty flogged and Big Jas (my coach Jason Allen) gave me a nice easy week to recover. This was the perfect build up for what promised to be a very challenging race in the Manawatu. Will and I flew up to Palmy on Friday morning, well prepared and very excited about the race. It was nice having a bit of time to chill out on Friday afternoon and we even had a chance to ride a bit of the course and check out the finish. While we were there we were extremely lucky to be able to stay with Peter and Erin Horgan, huge thanks to them for the hospitality!

Wait for the Race day

Club Nationals – Detonation

I travelled to Hastings this weekend for the New Zealand Club Nationals road race. The race didn’t pan out as I had planned (quite the opposite) but I have still come away feeling positive about the way things are going.

The Race

I went into the race feeling confident about my form but a little bit doubtful about my health. I came down with a virus early last week and this forced me to take a few days completely off the bike. It wasn’t a good time; muscle aches, fever and fatigue. I made it quite a lot worse for myself by going into full-blown denial mode last Sunday… “I’m not getting sick I’m just being soft.” It was the wrong attitude and riding Gorges with the Benchmark guys was the wrong option!!

I came to my senses and took some much needed rest. Come race day I was pretty sure that I had shaken it off. I actually felt great in the first half of the race and tried to be careful not to overdo things early on. A breakaway group of 5 established a healthy lead and pushed it out to over 5 minutes at the end of the 3rd lap (the race was 6 laps making up 175km). At this point people were beginning to tire in the peloton and opportunities were starting to present themselves.

Sam Horgan and Will Bowman

Around the hilly back half of the course a few small groups jumped away from the peloton, taking advantage of some of the pre-race favourites such as Sam Horgan and Will Bowman being heavily marked. I took an opportunity to sneak across and attacked hard on my own. I felt really good and the legs responded well as I dug deep to jump up to the next group. I drove hard and a few of us quickly closed the gap to the first of the chase groups.

We continued to push the pace and soon there were just two of us (Simon Binney and myself) time-trialling our way up towards the front group. We had a slim 30 second advantage over the peloton for quite a while but gradually we eased it out to over a minute. All this time we had been pulling big chunks of time out of the front group, taking the gap down to only 2:30 with 45km to go. It was all going very well; I still felt strong and my tt companion Simon was going like a motorbike.

This all changed with 40km to go. I hit the wall in the most spectacular fashion. Vision blurred, arms and legs turned to jelly and I started to feel quite dizzy. Within the space of 5 minutes I went from feeling solid, and pushing hard for the win to struggling to even turn the pedals. Not a pleasant surprise! Simon dropped me on one of the steeper climbs and kindly waited for me catch back on so we could continue to work together. I tried to pull another turn but I was way too far gone and he had to carry on alone.

I had basically come to a standstill and as the remainder of the field blew past me I couldn’t even muster the strength to jump on the back. One of the wheel wagons ended up picking me up after driving past and then waiting for me when they saw the sorry state I was in. Not how I imagined this race would finish! I tried to work out what had gone wrong and my conclusion is that I still have a bit of last week’s virus lingering in my system.

Or did I just blow from lack of food? Well, I have blown from not eating enough in the past but this was quite a different sensation. I had eaten more than enough during the race, I think I was up to 7 gels, 2 bars and 4 bottles when I cracked and I don’t think I could have consumed much more without having to stop for a picnic on the side of the road somewhere!

So its back to recovery for a few days for me. I’m confident I will be back to full strength by the weekend. Looking forward to the next race!! Round 3 of the Benchmark Series is in 2 weeks and I would very much like to cap off a good block of racing with a win there.

The winner

Congratulations to Sam Horgan (Subway / Pegasus) for taking out the TT/Road Race double up in Hastings. Another great result from a classy rider! And a wicked ride from Simon Binney (Subway / Tauranga) who held on to take out the U23 road race title. Personally, I’m glad I laid it on the line and had a solid crack at the win. It was all or nothing and sometimes you just don’t have the legs to pull it off!

Cheers to the Tasman Wheelers crew for helping me out at the race, much appreciated!

Mountain Bike Shopping on a Budget – Hardtail vs Full Suspension

Say, you are planning to get a mountain bike. Things are easy if you have lots of cash to spend: you can get a shiny new bike exactly the way you want it from a reputable brand. Sadly, it is not the case here. Don’t worry, you can still find the best full suspension mountain bike under 1000 at But a dilemma you will be very likely get yourself into is:  with the same amount of money, what to choose between a hardtail and a full-suspension mountain bike? Should you just get a basic, decent full suspension bike or opt for a hardtail with better components or materials? If you are making that choice, here is a little handy guide for you.
First, letís start with the basis: A hardtail is a mountain that normally has a suspension fork on the front and a solid frame without rear suspension. On the other hand, a full suspension mountain bike has both rear and front suspensions joined by pivots with a shock absorber. It is more than just a hardtail with a rear suspension: in fact, it is more complicated than that and is often more expensive. So, it means for the same amount of money, you must make some compromise: rear suspension or better components for hardtail.
Now, we will go over some differences between these two types of bikes:
  • Frame: full suspension bike is clearly the winner as it is designed to withstand and absorb shock.
  • Components: hands off for a hardtail because it is way ahead in providing a wide variety of better components like brakes, wheels and tyres.
  • For climbing the hill or steep, the weight and design of a hardtail makes it a better choice; however it is the opposite case for going downhill as a full suspension bike helps the rider keep the balance and speed with confidence.
  • Comfort: a full suspension bike goes easier on your body after a ride (especially on bumpy terrains) as it helps absorb shocks and reduces tension.
  • Repair and maintenance: Mechanically, a hardtail is simpler; therefore it requires less time and money on repair and maintenance. You need to take very good and frequent care of the full suspension bike if you want it to serve you well.
  • Weight: While a hardtail is generally more lightweight, with recent technological advances, the difference is not considerable. As a matter of fact, you can find some very lightweight full suspension bike on the market.
  • Price:  If you have a very limited budget, it is better to go with a hardtail. A full suspension bike generally costs more due to frame quality, shock absorber, pivotsÖ.With the same amount, you can get a hardtail with better components.
If all of these differences are not enough to help you choose the one for you, here is the most important factor: your riding style (and terrain). For commuting and riding on city road, you will find the hardtail a good match. It is fast, fun and efficient. But to conquer rough terrains, a full suspension mountain bike will no doubt excel.
Each type of bike is great in its own way so in the end, it is up your personal preference and riding style.

Baseball Positions on the fields and its detailed Rules

Pitcher throws the ball in the strike zone. Strikes 3 times kept throwing (pitching accuracy, validity) – can not consecutively – are counted as out. But if the pitcher threw the ball out of the strike zone will be called the throwing error, after 4 times throwing balls, the batter was allowed to walk to the 1st base.  

Position the players

  • Pitcher is the person who threw the ball toward the batter. The pitcher will stand facing the batter, the pitcher above the supporting leg, or touching the pitcher’s plate on the front, not to the pitcher’s plate and outside of the foot rest freely.
  • The position of the catcher behind home plate. This CT shoot and bounce the ball back to the pitcher throws. The main task is to try for running base CT to steal a base and prevent the runner on base to home to score.
  • First baseman (CT holds 1st level): infield playing in, on or near the 1st base.
  • Second baseman (CT holds 2nd level): play defense in the field, often standing between 1st and 2nd base base. The main task is to try to protect second base as: shooting the ball from the outfielder throws (CT terrace), infielder (CT courtyard), and dodged the blows slide (wiping movement of people) in the case of the double runner -play (out consecutive type 2).
  • Third baseman (CT holds 3rd level): infield playing in, on or near the 3rd base. The main task is to try to shoot the ball from the batter hits the ball and throw to 1st base, 2nd base. This is a difficult position.
  • Left fielder (CT yard the left): play defense position left rear yard shortstop.
  • Center fielder (CT yard middle): choiphong prime midfield position behind 2nd base, usually the fastest CT in 3 outfielder. When a fly ball between the outfielders, CT is responsible for determining who is going to hit that ball.
  • Right fielder (CT yard right): play yard defensive position right behind the 2nd baseman.

 How To Play

best softball bats 18

Each Team registered one batting order. The attacking team’s batter will turn into the stadium in the order registered. While the first batter in the batter’s box are standing in the area of the batter hit the ball, the team the next batter to prepare their votes (boots, holding baseball game, helmet …).

Each Team players can change when the referee allows for good reason. The pitcher started the game by throwing the ball moves toward the batter. The batter will turn into batter’s box in the order registered to polish. If the batter hits the ball on the infield or outfield fly legally, become runner and batter must run quickly through 1st base position.

Each CT’s defense team will try to shoot the ball, and threw the first baseman is ranked 1st base. First baseman caught the ball with the foot to stomp on 1st base. If the batter runs to first baseman faster than 1st base when shooting the ball, batter will be safe. In contrast, if the batter runs to first baseman slower than 1st base when hitting the ball, the batter will be out. The runner cannot stand forever in the 1st base position, he must continue to run to the next base when the next batter hit the ball to his teammates.

Baseball and its magical strategy

In one baseball game, the running speed of the players, the ability and pitching style of pitcher as well as the capability of throwing the ball take the large impact on the final result. The typical defense situations include: anti-lightweight support players (bunt), anti-theft key very close defense to stop the run in three key points and defense style “double” (double play) which is the kind of running at the same time and closing a second key to move to the defensive positions.

The role of the catcher


This player will play with the defensive role. Standing at the mound player, and always in the ready position. On its turn of the enemy team, players will serve as preparation and use gestures to throw the ball very hard and accurate level of hitting, flying straight into the glove through Home Plate. If the catcher is 4 times the rated players are corrupt then walk to the progressive one, and the players who are standing accumulated in the field will advance to accumulate.

 Defense strategy

Throwing the ball is the most effective methods of the defense team, it can knockout the polished players and prevent players to run to the key accounts. Although the pitcher is allowed just one step forward or backward in the process of throwing the ball, but in return he has certain advantages when positions can change pitching, speed, street ball, and the way his arms, swung park different. The majority of the pitcher are trying to master the skills of 2 to 3 different pitchers; the road curved the ball away for combining finger and wrist spin to the ball Pitcher created;

Strategy classic pitcher

However, the pitch is often difficult to be able to hit because the direction and speed of the ball is very difficult to predict. Although the pitch often cannot go as fast as the first shot through his arms but the pitcher threw the ball away. It is often dangerous to smash player to lose his balance when hit ball. In professional tournaments some players outside expertise in his position can play quite in the position throw the ball. Today, in modern baseball, the number 100 is considered to be the magic number.

The team on the field

There are all 9 players on the defensive team, of which only 2 positions (people throwing and catching) is fixed, and all other positions are optional. Usually there will be an optimum layout for the defense, but depending on the person and situation smash game where the players can change accordingly. Nine defensive positions are: the shooter (pitcher), who started (catcher), holds a key (first baseman), hold key two (second baseman), hold key three (third baseman), short stop (shortstop), left outside (left fielder), between the outside (center fielder), right outside (right fielder). The order of the players on the table is going to throw points (1), the catch (2), a holding latch (3), hold the second key (4), hold the key three (5), a short block (6) , left outside (7), between the outside (8), in addition to (9).

The position of the short block (shortstop) somewhat differently than other locations due to the habits of the early players in the sport.Four defensive players in the courtyard area is a key but they also need to have the skills to run and catch the ball well.

  • The durability of the fastpitch softball bats. The best fastpitch softball bats are able tolast for the more time than other types of bats. The most critical element decides the durability of a bat is its materials. From the opinions of many experienced softball players, the composite material or the aluminum are considered the two most long-lasting substances. The bats made of wood will have the less durability than. As a matter of fact, the longest time for using a wooden bat is less than one month. It explained well the reason why such type of bat is much cheaper than other types.
  • The design. However, to choose between the composite and alloy bats, you also should look at their properties and their design as well. About the quoted price, the alloy bats or the aluminum bats are usually cheaper than the composite ones. However, such discrepancy is not much. But the distinct advantage of the composite softball bat cannot be denied and it may overweight other disadvantages. The main strength we mentioned here is the ability of vibration reduction toward the users’ hands. As the result, this bat type reduces the impact sting in the most drastically way and somehow, it can last longer than the remaining types.

Even in more professional matches, the softball bats also need to be certified before joining the game.
