    Help! Do I say anything or not? (long read sorry but needed)

    Looks like the program as a whole is suffering unter current AD.. Tryout number's down and other programs are now putting your HS on notice. The TB players want to play but don't want to get sucked into current coaches negative style of gloom and doom. Can't believe this is going to get...

    First showcase

    If a coach witnesses a parent carrying any equipment "that equipment" is impounded by the coach for the weekend. You're not playing! Water better be sent with player or share with teammates. No eating in the dugout. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    First showcase

    Don't sit behind Home Plate. Sit along 1st or 3rd base lines. Don't interact with DD during the game. Cheeing is fine. Don't try talking with coaches as they won't talk with you. Your coaching staff should've already posted players bios and GPA's online and at the game. Just go and enjoy the...

    Interesting Dilemma on Roster Size and Playing Time

    If you add the stud to the team getting it back to 13 the parents and kids on the fence will leave eventually. Now you're putting another player that could be getting rep's on bracket day on the pine. By the time it's all over you could find yourself with 9-10 by the time all the dust settles...

    Going to lessons~What plan and path did you take?

    Going on 6 year's with same instructor. (Like most parent/coaches my kid has difficulty following MY instruction) The instructors been at high levels of college baseball, and high-school coaching.

    Playing on a bad team

    "So at 10-U is the winning and losing that important? Is it worth staying on a bad team if the competition is good and your DD is improving and excelling? At this age, is it better to have your DD getting #1 mound time In a lot of games vs good competition or being a #2 behind a coach’s daughter...

    Guess I'll start an off-topic thread?

    Bob wasn't the nicest guy. He was run from the Harlem Globetrotters because he didn't like people and wouldn't smile or engage the crowds. I had a 60's era baseball still in the original box and he false started his signature on purpose. I had my own pen I wanted him to use. Go figure. He...

    When the unthinkable happens

    CT was negative. She gained all movement later that night at the Hospital. She was released after several hours of observation. Currently staying away from TV, phone's, and now just waiting on concussion protocol defined by USSSA to expire to get back to ball. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    High School coach

    I get it for those on the school side of HS ball. Can't imagine how bad it must suck with all the crying with every sport, and year after year. I talk with current and former HS coaches (FP/BB) all the time. I hear from disgruntled parents too. Yeah some teacher needs an extra grand or two and...

    When the unthinkable happens

    YES! During the Ambulance ride she was finally able squeeze her hand. One of the Doctor parents on our team (by some weird fate we happen to have 2 parents that are Doctor's with kids on our current team) was keeping her awake until she was taken. Eyes kept rolling back in her head and she...
