    LS RXT

    My daughter hit the 2018 PXT for a while. She says the RXT is a completely different bat. Has way more pop, and as you can clearly see, it's balanced.

    New catcher's mitt decision

    My DD used the liberty during first year 12s and part of the second year. The mitt became floppy and the laces broke after 1 1/2 years. I got her the Mizuno while I was having the Liberty relaced. I had the Mizuno steamed and conditioned with the Mizuno strong oil. It was game ready after a...

    Jen Schroeder - The Packaged Deal

    In regards to the throwing hand position during a block I don't feel there's any more danger in Jen's technique vs. NECC. A good catcher should have her throwing hand behind the mitt before the takes a swing. If you look at the video you posted you notice the quick and short movement of the hand...

    Jen Schroeder - The Packaged Deal

    My DD is a catcher and plays 14u travel ball in SoCal. I have pretty much seen the best catchers in her age group and have never seen one of them use the NECC runners on position. I don't recall seeing any of the top college catcher use the NECC technique either. Personally, I believe setting...

    Throwing Drill Needed – Elbow parallel to ground

    My 10 yr old DD had the same problem. This past fall she started taking lessons for catching. Her coach had me purchase a ThrowMax to help her keep the elbow up. She also informed my DD, that when she was younger, she had a similar problem which lead to shoulder surgery. Those 2 things and...

    Recommend beginner's catching equipment set

    One of my catchers bought the Adidas set during the spring season. I noticed she got new leg guards this past weekend. Her mom said the velcro wore out and would not hold any more. She probably got 60 games out of it.

    Our girls played against the "unhittable" pitcher today. We got down 6-1, but rallied for 5 in the last inning to tie it. We went into tie breaker mode, only to lose it thanks to 3 blown calls by the ump. We brought out the radar gun today. For the record, the "unhittable" pitcher, topped...

    How do you hit the unhittable? Please help!

    Our team faced this pitcher over the weekend. We handed her and her team their first loss of the allstar season. Our girls worked hard during the week knowing that they would face her during the tournament. One of our coaches saw the girl pitch during warmup. They had a radar gun and on her...

    How do you hit the unhittable? Please help!

    We feel like it could have been even closer. We made 2 errors that led to runs and our pitcher was a little shaky at the start. I know our girls can hit her. Good luck this weekend.

    How do you hit the unhittable? Please help!

    I bet you this pitcher is the same one we faced last weekend in Northridge. We got to the championship game and managed to get 1 hit off of her, but we out many balls in play. We lost 4-0 against them but we will face them against this weekend. We are working hard to beat them.
