    Who is in whos camp?

    Marcela 10 Years Old

    Finish high works for DD some days. Others it makes for a forced high finish resulting in the ugliest damn swing you've ever seen. Usually her downward swing is upper body moving before the lower body. So if finish high doesn't get it worked out, I can tell her to turn her hips first and all...

    Looking for help on getting a girl over fear of grounders

    That's a really good approach. DD is mostly recovered from an incident from last year, but still holds back a little. If you smoke one at her, she jumps on it out of reflex. A firm grounder she shies away from if she has the slightest bit of time to think about it. I'm going to try this to...

    New Guidelines For The Team ~ What will your team do? What to expect.

    How to Play Softball During a Pandemic

    Fauci Says there is a way sports (ie Professional Sports) can resume this summer.... this does not sound good for softball to return before fall...

    My counties show rates per 100k of 59.78 and 57.55. This map shows 454.9 and 203.64. With a combined population of 350k, that's a significant difference.
