Not exactly fastpitch, but…

You can tell by the name of this blog that it’s devoted to fastpitch softball. I try to provide information that helps coaches and parents help their fastpitch players.

But my guess is that at least some (if not many) of you parents also still play a little slowpitch softball yourselves. So for your benefit, I thought I’d pass along a little info that came to me from a manufacturer called jak’d, about their new bat called the Claymore. It’s a 100 percent composite bat, and the manufacturer says it has plenty of pop and a short break-in period. Also that it’s approved for play by USSSA.

This is not an endorsement since I haven’t tried it, but if you’re a player it might be worth checking out. And if you do, be sure to stop back and leave a comment letting us all know if it performs as-advertised. After all, we can all use a little extra edge in our games.
