    Daughter wants a new team

    With travel tryout season approaching, it sounds like your DD is ready to move on from Rec Ball. Find a few reputable travel orgs in your area not affiliated with a league and take her to some tryouts. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Rawlings HoH R2G

    Correct that this is an 11.5” glove. It is a conventional back so always looser than a Velcro closure at the wrist. Had to use the closest holes on the wrist strap, but DD [emoji3590] the new leather. Finger stalls are sufficiently narrow to accommodate manipulation by a youth hand. Her favorite...

    Rawlings HoH R2G

    10U DD just got a new MI glove. Really impressed with this one, the first well constructed glove I have seen that is genuinely game ready with minimal break-in, and by the player no less. DD immediately set her Nokona X2 aside and now refuses to use it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    LH catcher positing for tag

    I went looking for video of a lefty play at the plate. Looks like at least here they are more or less receiving like 1B and shoving across their body for the tag. https://youtu.be/ui9hgDJKL0M I always knew elite lefty catchers were as rare a unicorn tears. I was however surprised to learn there...

    Report to safesport or warn other parents..or both

    Neither. From your description, I suspect the HC has a military background and/or was simply born before 1981. Tough to say without seeing it first-hand, but it sounds like he/she is trying to teach personal accountability. Some people respond well to “knifehands” while others do not. Sent...

    2019 Easton Ghost ASA versus other bats

    Thanks Core. Linear cracks are exactly on opposing sides of the barrel. One side is more or less flat but the other has minor displacement (one side about a thumbnail higher than the other). As far as usage, we are probably in the 2,000-3,000 hits range. Didn’t think much of it as it was the...

    2019 Easton Ghost ASA versus other bats

    Not the ASA version but I think my 10yo kid has managed to crack her Easton Ghost in two months of indoor front toss and tee work. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Super Proud of DD’s Progress

    Her catching coach was ecstatic. He said next time for her to consider drawing an obstruction call vs trying to throw over the obstructing batter[emoji12] She is leaps and bounds better than last year at this time. Very cool to see when all that training “clicks.” Sent from my iPhone using...

    Super Proud of DD’s Progress

    DD is 9 and has been catching about a year in a backup role. Got her first opportunity last weekend to fill the “everyday” role playing 10UB. Pretty cool to watch her sell out on every pitch to keep everything in front. #BuildTheWall #NoE2 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
