    What are we missing?

    Let me clarify, her accuracy is actually quite good but when she misses, most of the time it's inside. We practice frequently and constantly work the 4 quadrants. She prides herself on her accuracy, which is why she gets frustrated when she misses inside.

    What are we missing?

    Are you talking about the forward swing of her arm? Should it be closer to the hip?

    What are we missing?

    Good observation, she initially learned HE but now throws IR. Any drills or cues you can share that you did with your daughter that helped?

    What are we missing?

    Not sure I follow. Lately the inside of her upper forearm gets red and painful as if she's getting too much brush.

    What are we missing?

    Not that I noticed, but I do see her everyday lol. The thought that maybe her hips got bigger could be one of the causes, but I wasn't totally convinced.

    What are we missing?

    First off, thanks to everyone on this forum. I posted a couple of years ago asking for help and many people were gracious enough to help us out. Today, I need some help again. For the past few months my 14y/o has been dealing with missing to the right, doesn't matter which pitch. If she misses...

    Exactly, and it leads to this type of instruction.....

    Travel Ball is Killing Rec Ball

    Not only that, you also play many more games in travel than you do in rec.

    Travel Ball is Killing Rec Ball

    There you go making sense again ;) I agree with this, but I don't see it happening anytime soon. The "interested, committed, and qualified volunteers" are parents that are mostly into it for their own DD. They join the league board for their own best interests. Also with the decline of HS...

    Travel Ball is Killing Rec Ball

    That's unfortunate and it sounds like you need to find another travel team. I would venture to say that most travel teams are not like that, at least the many that I've seen aren't. I ran a travel team for 2.5 years and we never charged a dime to the families, other than their initial...

    What makes you lose your mind?

    1. Telling a player to do something and they nod to you that they understand. The very next play they have an opportunity to do what you just told them to do and they don't do it...... 2. A pitcher telling you that she throws three different pitches, yet they all look exactly the same..... 3...

    “Stay Tall”

    No offense, but if it's been a year with a PC and they haven't addressed/resolved that issue yet then maybe you should look for a different PC. Not saying the one you're seeing isn't good but maybe they just aren't getting through to your DD. Sometimes a different person explaining the same...

    The flute player

    When I coached rec I had a spreadsheet with the lineup and positions they were playing 3-4 games in advance. I spent a lot of time making sure everyone had equal playing time, only so I didn't have to hear it from the parents. I had a system and it worked, that is until a parent or two would...

    Been A While - Need Some Advice

    With some quick fingers on the pause button, I was able to pull these frames from the other swing you posted. You can see how she starts to get the barrel to work behind her to get on plane while the hands stay back with the rear shoulder. My guess is you'll see less of a turn of that barrel...

    Been A While - Need Some Advice

    My DD suffers from a high attack angle and it's something that we've been correcting. What I found with her is that she wasn't turning the barrel back very much she was mostly pushing her hands down to the ball. When she had a high attack angle, I wouldn't see the bottom of the knob when...
