    The coach at my old college sends out email updates every couple of weeks on the stats with the new bats. It seems that the league ERA is down about a run since last year and all the offensive stats were down significantly as well.

    Less excuses for scouts to goof up power predictions. Baseball as a whole feel in love with the long ball and everything was tilted to help push those up. Now minus Steroids we're seeing a return to an era where basics is more important, it might take a couple years but I think we will see more of a game where it might slightly be tilted to favor the pitchers but with the bandboxes in the league serving as a balance for hitters.

    Could have just been an odd week. The sound is different you still get a little "ping" most of the time, but everyone once in a while you'll hear a "crack". I'd have to look to make sure it wasn't a wood bat.

    All the games were at the Cal Ripken Experience down in Myrtle Beach. That's a pretty cool facility. All the fields are modeled after old baseball stadiums. There was Griffith Field, The Polo Grounds and Navin.

    All the fields are that synthetic turf. That stuff feels pretty nice.
    We're likely taking our 13U team to the Ripken Academy next summer. I've only heard great things about that place.


    I'm going to start a new thread to discuss the new bat regulations, a place to post reviews of BBCOR bats, experiences, etc for YOUTH baseball. I was going to continue that discussion in this thread, but don't want to ruin the discussion about NCAA baseball.
