They are beasts from the same pack.
The number one softball game I wish I had not misses watching was...as PED boys major team getting destroyed by team of not PED guys with some shaved to the gills bats.
If I remember correctly....In the mid 2000s Classic Glass beat the wheels off of Brett Helmer’s team at the sponsored by DanSmith, Mike Davis memorial Major nit in concord ca.
Talk was that Classic was an early leader in shaved bats and and that weekend Classic beat Helmer’s steroid boys so bad they were loosing it over the bats...and just like when a clean team plays a bunch of PED boys there was nothing at that time that could done to test...
As I see it...the PED boys and altered bats have been two of the biggest things that have destroyed a once great game.
If your not going to address both of them..you might as well not address either one and let the game continue down the drain.
At the upper levels...I see no difference between shaved bats and PED users..they are both major negatives and often deal
enders for real men looking for a clean sport to play and compete in.
Dale always asked a good question in his player site up on softball center...everyones answer should be the same.
IT IS NOT A SPORT IF YOU’RE ALLOWED TO CHEAT.
