My husband plays in a couple of leagues. He has been playing since he was right out of high school. He plays with a traveling team on the weekends as well as other leagues during the week. We are going to Disney World in Sept. for ball. They are playing in a world tourny at Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex. (I just booked our trip today!!)

For the most part, the guys on his team basically just played in high school. We've got one guy on the team this year that was a pitcher and was drafted to some majors team for baseball. I cant remember what team he was going to but he hurt his shoulder, Im pretty sure while he was in the minors, so I think he was cut because of that.

So is it Slow pitch overhand or underhand? Or fastpitch?
I also play in a women's league right now during the week and have played co-ed for a while

Slowpitch is not necessarily only underhand. My husband plays mon nights in an overhand league. It is still played with a softball and although the ball is not thrown as slow as it is in underhand, it is not a fastpitched overhand throw either.

and $40 for a softball bat...LOL! good luck with that! If you want a bat thats worth anything and it doesnt ping when you hit a softball, your looking at at least 200.00 and thats still a cheap one!

I know a guy who used to go into academy and replace the price tags on the expensive bats with the tags from the shitty bats.
The store by me has since locked those bats up now! They only have the cheaper ones out on display now.
He also does this with batting gloves!

Try Ebay. You can usually get a good bat for pretty cheap on there. Just make sure they are not shaved already and still have the warrenty.

Jock - Good job on the W. Check this out http://www.bigleaguedreams.com/

We just got back from there over the weekend. This park is pretty awesome. Each field is a replica of a major babseball stadium.

My SO was in a league. He has his uniforms, but I've never seen him play or seen pics (well, I saw one, but I could barely make him out).. :(
