They start at 4:15 here. by far the smallest crowd of the season was tonight. Maybe 25 people for both Teams.
She will not hit anyone.
"A coach should not be judged on what they know but rather on what their players have learned." Bear Bryant
Mental thing, quincy, the more she fears hitting batters, the more batters she's going to hit. Not wanting to hit a batter creates the mental image of hitting the batter, and the body doesn't understand English. Time for some visualization, maybe a batter cutout for practice.
DD got off to the wrong start this year. Hitting batters was something new but her seasons have not gone the way I have expected them too.
She only has 3 more games and then has @6 months off pitching in games, she is taking a long break from games this offseason.
