    Latest swings from long time DFP member

    is there an ingrained, conscious cue in effect to "finish high"? I see a purposeful and forced high finish, that obviously has no bearing at all on the swing into and at contact, the forced high finish happens way after the ball is already gone. But maybe this cue helps optimize something else...

    aren't these two aspects mutually exclusive? I say that, because "staying inside" and "letting ball get a bit deeper" is something that we have to consciously think about, otherwise she is a "dead pull" hitter, for the most part.

    yes - good observation. This has been a chronic issue that we continually try and work on. Her head is a lot more stable now, than it was say a year ago. But she does still tend to "post-up" on that front leg and drift up and onto it. another goal we are striving for is to let the ball travel a...

    Locker room baptisms at Texas Tech?

    let's think this through.... so, a college age woman gets baptized in an athletic locker room. why? I suppose that it is possible that one athlete, came to Texas Tech, discovered Christianity, and decided to grow her Faith, and become baptized. And because many of these p5 athletes live...

    Locker room baptisms at Texas Tech?

    I wonder how a muslim player would be received if she wanted to conduct a sacrament of Islam in the Texas Tech locker room or dugout? Just sayin'...

    Alliance Fall Cup forcing teams to use AGL for scoring

    you know, if the AGL product worked as well as GC, or heck - if it just worked as promised, people might use it voluntarily... just sayin' A few issues: 1. When volume of active users is high, the server communication for scoring locks-up. 2. The video resolution of archived games is really...

    Hard to insure there is no peer/coach pressuring in a situation like this.

    JD Martinez

    add Gary Sanchez (NY Yankees) to the list. (Although he has heated-up a bit, as of late...) Probably the biggest fall from grace I can recall from recent memory is Chris Davis (Orioles).
