    WTT Bat performance with a chip

    It looks like a paint chip but there is a gouge definitely more than a paint chip. When I said size of a quarter I meant thickness as well. I agree it won't add 125ft to the ball. The girl has a nice swing so maybe everything just came together for her... Sent from my Pixel 3a XL using Tapatalk

    WTT Bat performance with a chip

    There is a girl on my team with a chip in her bat about the size of a quarter, right in the sweet spot. The outter painted layer (shell) is off and you can see the black Barrel exposed. This bat is atleast 4 years old and the girl couldn't hit a ball out of the infield before this chip appeared...

    Radar guns

    I have a Bushnell it reads about 10mph slower than other radars. I have had my DD clocked on a $2000 juggs gun that read her at 55mph -57mph, a pocket radar that had her at 53-55 and a Bushnell that has her at 43-45. I tend to think the Pocket Radar is the best value and probably the closest to...

    Fake Stat published in a reputable website

    I had an experience with this during this past season. My DD was in a battle to bat on Sundays vs the score keepers DD. Every hit she had was a hit and if my DD had anything that was even close to questionable was called an error. The funniest thing of all this is the score keepers DD didn't bat...

    12u problems with high pitch-please help

    Is this the same kid as the first video? It looks like she has fixed some of that form and is on the right track. May I ask why she isn't wearing shoes/cleats in either video? In the first one I notice she has on socks and the second one nothing at all. I my opinion this is a good way to get...

    Sore Losers

    Someone I had talked to said it's because the coach is trying to avoid a call from the head of the organization asking how they could have lost to some team they never heard of. I just find it funny that someone would go out of their way to make it look like they didnt lose. At this point it's...

    Sore Losers

    So we were at a big tournament over the weekend with teams from 5 or so different states. We played a well known team with a reputation of being very elite. Our team is a newer organization, not so well know outside of our general area. So we played a very good game and our pitcher was keeping...

    2019 Actual bat performance talk

    DD just got a 2019 LXT. It is still breaking in. It sounded very different at first and was thinking that Louisville did away with the shattered glass sound. But now that its breaking in that sound is coming. The jury is out on it so far, but she likes the size difference from her old LXT...

    2019 Actual bat performance talk

    I have a 2019 LXT 31/21 arriving tomorrow. I don't think I will have my DD switch bats mid season as she is currently swinging a 30/19. But we may do some tee work just to check it out. Any thoughts on switching bats in the middle of the season. We have 4 weekends straight of tournaments...

    2019 DeMarini pics

    I have seen dealers at Bat Demos only offering new bats for around 289. This 20% off coupon makes it 279. What type of discount do they offer? Sent from my SM-G950U1 using Tapatalk

    2019 DeMarini pics

    Does anyone know if the 2019 Demarini will be available on Dicks website on release day??? I have a 20% off coupon that expires on 6/4. I was going to buy the Quatro Pro but I would rather have the CF Zen. But I will buy the Rawlings for 70 bucks off over a demarini. Sent from my SM-G950U1...

    U10 Coach, always with more questions. =)

    You are correct with your infield routine. Just have the 3rd baseman stand closer to home plate as not to interfere with the pitcher warming up. Outfield we always have centerfielder catch with either the left or right fielder and one of our bench players go out and warm up whichever one the...

    Need Bat Advice.

    I would love for her to demo. The only problem is Dicks is the only retailer around and they don't carry those bats, if they do they aren't in the sizes she would need. She has swung her teammates CF10 and likes it. Sent from my SM-G950U1 using Tapatalk

    Need Bat Advice.

    I am looking to buy my DD a new bat. I plan on letting her finish the year with her current 2016 LXT 30/19 and buying this new bat to use in her true 12u season starting in the fall. I think it's time she takes the step up to 31 inches based on what have read for her height. My choices are...

    Am I over reacting?

    It's not the fact of them watching, I would watch also and when I am warming the team up I employ my wife to go watch the other team and give me a scouting report. It's the fact how they were standing with their arms crossed and just laser focused and in my opinion intimidating my DD. We...
