    I had a girl in rec last year that I swear I could move multiple times per inning and the ball would get hit to (past) her! We called her The Magnet.

    You know had a fielding problem? Roger Dorn of the Cleveland Indians. He used to save himself for free agency.

    Default update

    Either coach figured it out or someone got in his ear. My DD and the other 2 kids she rotated with are getting lots of playing time at various positions and his DD not getting many innings at 2B anymore. Games are going much smoother.

    Coach's DD plays 2B exclusively and she struggles to make plays. She makes at least one mental or physical error per inning on defense. She is a below average hitter and base runner.

    She played 100% of innings at 2B this weekend and plays much more than she ever sits.

    Meanwhile my DD(who is good) and 2 other kids (who are also good) are rotating at SS. My DD played less than 50% of the innings this weekend. Any one of the three would be a huge upgrade at 2B. Other kids are playing OF exclusively who could possibly also be an upgrade if given a chance.

    End rant.

    Thanks, I feel a little better now!

    Hello,

    new to the forum and instead of starting a new topic figured Id piggy back on this.

    I have a 10 year old daughter who turns 11 in August. Shes going into 6th grade so she could (and maybe should?) be playing 2nd year 12U

    She has been a competitive cheerleader since 3 years old and due to her athleticism she has always been placed with the older girls. The team she is on now is comprised mainly of 13-16 year olds and due to my daughters size (5'4, 115 lbs) shes a base and one of the lead tumblers in their routines.

    Our biggest problem is that right there. My daughter loves to cheer and she also loves softball. We were with a coach that did not have an issue with it but we had to part from that team due to age restrictions. So our past 2 years in 10U ball have not been very fun what so ever as we have consistently been told "Your daughter is a special athlete and we will absolutely work with her schedule" only to later have this used against her and we have to find a new team.

    This latest example - Was told that with her missing Winter practices and other girls were my daughter was going to start off on the lower end of the playing spectrum to start out with. This was not an issue for my athlete and her mother. The problem was - my daughter was out performing the other girls. We then were able to get her schedule changed so she would not miss any practices and at this point the coach moved the goalposts back and told us "Well i wanted her to play here and there but since she had cheer we werent able to do that so now she wont get to the rest of the year" So they decided to rotate her in/out of RF every other inning with a few other girls I can only think we're also "undesirables" So basically practices and games were 3-4 girls watching "the regulars" work on stuff.

    Im at my wits end to be quite honest with you all. At this point I dont even see a reason to continue to try and put my daughter (who really wants to play softball and wants to be the next Bryce Harper) onto another team. In the 4 years she has played softball she has already had 3 of her coaches pull the "If you dont drop cheer for softball you cannot play with us" spiel.

    Anyone else have to deal with this before? What was the outcome?
