    New Balance cleats

    For my DD they seemed to. Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk

    New Balance cleats

    DD wears them. Work just fine and they are one of the few brands that offer wide widths. Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk

    Coronavirus

    Wow, I can't believe they are telling the kids they are on their own. DD teacher (4th grade) is working on getting a web meeting setup with all the kids. They are also sending out links with assignments, they are expected to read books and take comprehension tests to meet their reading goals...

    Coronavirus

    Our small city just overruled our softball board and cancelled the tournament they were trying to hold this weekend. Probably for the better. We just got done with spring break. With that many people all returning from all over the country that was asking for trouble. Sent from my SM-G975U1...

    Coronavirus

    Our local rec league board still wants to hold a tournament this weekend. Currently 40 teams registered, 10 kids x 40 = 400 + 800 parents = 1200 people. I'm pretty sure many teams will cancel or no show though. Board meets again on Wednesday for a final decision assuming the city doesn't issue a...

    Best Catcher's Bag?

    Dd has the No Error's bag and loves it. It isn't cheap though. Love the wide wheels, hooks so it can hang on the fence, and the plastic runners on the bottom so it doesn't get torn up dragging it over curbs. Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk

    Coronavirus

    Our school district just cancelled school next week and our rec ball just cancelled practice and games indefinitely. They have also closed the fields until further notice so you can't use the fields to practice on your own. Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk

    4-6 Instructional Softball League

    I wouldn't spend $100 on a glove for a 4yo, but Bradley has this one on clearance for $65. For a full leather shell it is a good option and should have a hand/finger stall to fit small hands...

    What makes you lose your mind?

    Fielders not moving! I promised the girls (10u rec) I would never make them run laps for making a mistake, but last night I came very close to breaking that promise. We were doing some game simulations last night and my SS and 3B were being statues if the ball wasn't hit to them. Had to keep...

    Thank you for all the great ideas!

    Correct. Everybody is in line to bat. You start with two strikes. So at first it is easier with no one fielding. It gets progressively harder as the girls strike out and you have more and more fielders. We also play that the last girl has to hit it to win. If I strike her out then I win and we...

    Thank you for all the great ideas!

    We haven't been, but we are a young 10u team so I haven't been pushing it them. I just want a clean catch and a good throw without rushing them yet. As the girls progress you can have the batter run through 1st before getting back in line to push the fielders to be quicker. Would need to put a...

    Thank you for all the great ideas!

    I just wanted to thank everyone who posts here with great ideas about coaching. I've still got a long ways to go, but we had a great practice tonight with our 10u rec ball team. I don't remember where I read it, but someone had posted a game/drill we have named "last girl standing". Everybody...

    Glove not closing straight

    The dad just approached me about it last night right before the game so I haven't had any time to work on it. I'll check the glove out again at practice tomorrow. Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk

    Glove not closing straight

    She is a little above average for a 10u, but not a giant. I was thinking of recommending a 12" H-web as a general all purpose glove. We have her playing a mix OF and 1B. Here are a couple of Bradley's but would like at least one other brand recommendation so she can try on at least a couple and...

    Glove not closing straight

    A parent on the team approached me before a game today about an issue with his DD's (10u) glove. When she squeezes the glove closed, the thumb is sliding over to the middle finger or even the index finger. It would explain why a fair number of balls hit her glove, but fall out. The glove is a...
