So, the past few posts have been solely about baseball and baseball bats- what’s new, what’s coming and even what’s legal. Well, I’d say it’s about time to steer away from baseball for this post and focus on a different sport – Slowpitch Softball.
Slowpitch has come a long way from the days of recreational Church Leagues. I know before I got into the slowpitch world, I had the idea that slowpitch was for the retired crowd, just looking to do something on a Sunday with some buddies. Not that there’s anything wrong with enjoying some time with friends and hitting More >
For every manufacturer, there are two basic designs for bats- single piece or two-piece. A single piece bat being made of one single material from the handle to the barrel, and two-piece bat having two separate pieces connected or fused together. These options have been the running standard for both composite and composite/alloy bats for years……UNTIL NOW…
Introducing, Tru3 technology by Louisville Slugger — THE NEWEST 3-PIECE BAT DESIGN! Yep, not one.. Not two.. But THREE pieces!
360 composite – this composite is thinner, which allows for more layers resulting in a stiffer handle. The stiffer the handle, the more solid the contact when it More >
At HomerunMonkey.com we have got some exciting news about the upcoming line from DeMarini! But before we get into the details of the latest, let’s refresh with a little background information…
Earlier this year, DeMarini released its latest update to the VooDoo line- the VooDoo Paradox. DeMarini completely revamped this bat with an upgraded alloy for the barrel and composite for the handle. Previously, the 2013 VooDoo was made up of SC4 Alloy and TR3 Composite. When the 2014 VooDoo Paradox was designed, they upgraded the barrel to their X10 Alloy and handle to their Paradox composite. This combination created their top-of-the line, More >
So many options, but which is right for my league?!
A breakdown on which bats are legal for play at each level…
OK, so when I’m not blogging about the all of the new and exciting items that Homerunmonkey.com has to offer- I double as a Customer Service Representative in the department.

They’ve dipped into the world of all wood bats, but DeMarini is best known for their composite material prowess. The new CF6 baseball bats coming for 2014, is a cut above the CF5 and CF5 LE from last year and DeMarini is excited as ever to introduce their latest technology.

TCT™ combined with Easton’s patented two-piece ConneXion™ technology, allows for what Easton claims to be More >
Baseball can trace its roots back to America but has grown to capture the hearts and minds of people around the world. With the sport’s unique blend of athleticism, coordination, strategy, and global intrigue, baseball was an obvious shoe in for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London… right? Not according to the International Olympic Committee (IOC). The IOC decided to nix baseball from the games making it the first sport to be eliminated since polo in 1936. So what other sports were so important that baseball was bumped off? Check out our graphical take on the “5 Ring Circus” and More >
