Bryce Harper Can See In HD

Friday, May 13th, 2011

As reported on the Washington Post by Dave Sheinin, Bryce Harper, catcher for the Hagerstown Suns, recently switched to contact lenses. Normally this wouldn’t be such a huge deal but since the switch Harper’s game has seriously improved and he’s giving all the credit to his new HD vision. He was recently seen by Washington Nationals’ team optometrist, and was told he was blind as a bat, and wondered how he hit the ball before.

Since being fitted with the new contacts, Harper’s batting went from .231 to hitting a singled, doubled, home-run and drove in six runs all in one night.

“It was like I was seeing in HD,” Harper said, who is now hitting .480.

Harper went on to say that he knew he needed contacts in college, “But I tried them for a while in high school, and they gave me headaches really bad. So I just got by without them. But these are a new kind of lenses, and they really help. The difference in vision is huge.”

So there you have it, contact lenses have come a long way and with the advanced technology such as more oxygen to the eye and better moisture, contact are definitely a viable option for anyone. Even if you are the number one pick in baseball.

This is great news, as the CF4 has been one of the most popular bats for the past few years. Unfortunately, the Vendetta C6 did not pass the test. DeMarini has issued the following statement on their website:

The Little League Vendetta C6(VCL) did not. If your Little League Vendetta C6 is still within the warranty period and has not used its one time replacement we will offer a Little League CF4 (CFL) as its replacement. The original receipt would be required.

You can set up your DeMarini bat return by phone at (800)937-BATS or by filling out the DeMarini bat return authorization request.

Little League Bans Composite Bats

Tuesday, January 25th, 2011

Little League Baseball placed a moratorium on the use of composite bats effective December 30, 2010. According to Little League Baseball, the ban was a result of “broken in” composite bats exceeding a Bat Performance Factor (BPF) of 1.15.

“The maximum performance standard for non-wood bats in the divisions for 12-year-olds and below is a Bat Performance Factor (BPF) of 1.15. The research found that composite bats, while they may meet the standard when new, can exceed that standard after a break-in process” President and Chief Executive Officer of Little League Baseball and Softball Stephen D. Keener explained.

While these bans leave manufacturers, dealers, and players scrambling, there could be a light at the end of the tunnel. Much like the composite ban by the National Federation of State High School Associations, bat manufacturers can try to receive a waiver by submitting their bats for further testing. Little League has created a list of approved composite bats and will continue to update the list as more bats get tested. Please check back frequently as this list is sure to grow.
