    Ball hits bat after bunt

    Thanks for the explanation, sounds like either way she was out. If the bat was moving and hit the ball she’s out by interference, if it wasn’t she was thrown out at first anyway.

    Ball hits bat after bunt

    What if the batter is out of the box or does that even matter. I don’t remember if she was in or out of the box, but it sounds like the umps made the wrong call, she should have been out both ways.

    Ball hits bat after bunt

    This happened last weekend, girl bunted, and dropped the bat in fair territory in front of the plate. The bat hits the ball, forwards the mound and the pitcher fields it and throws the girl out at first. Umps call dead ball and say it’s a dead ball and give the batter a strike. What’s the right...

    Opposing coach telling batters pitch position

    It’s a pretty young age group 12u, our catcher does setup pretty late, not in the pitchers motion though. Yes after he started doing that they had better success hitting the ball, in fact that’s when they pulled ahead.

    Opposing coach telling batters pitch position

    Played a team this weekend who is a decent team but that is over shadowed by their coach and well trailer park parents. Their hitters were having trouble hitting our pitcher, 0-0 after 4 innings. So they’re coach started saying, “in” “out” after our catcher setup. We informed the umpires, they...

    Drinking coach gone too far? What next?

    Get the organization involved, if they won’t do anything then Fike a safe sport. Drinking is one thing but putting your hands on my kid is another. Speaking from experience, assistant coach put hands on my kid, organization and hc refused to do anything, even with witnesses, it was the last...

    Drills for seeing the ball

    My DD is having difficulty picking up the ball out of the pitchers hand, are there any tips or drills we can do to help her with this. Whenever she hits off a tee, front toss, side toss, she has no problems making good solid contact. When she gets to a live pitcher she’s has trouble seeing the...

    Covid and team fees

    They are a non profit in good standing I checked last night. I had a conversation with the director of the organization, basically he said they could give out refunds but doesn’t want to get into writing checks out. He is supposed to be getting me financials, once I see how much is actually...

    Covid and team fees

    I’d also like to add in, that they were collecting team gate fees as well, when they knew there was a surplus and were not planning on playing after the World Series. To me the whole thing smells fishy, and that’s why I’ve been pressing it with them and the owner of the business the organization...

    Covid and team fees

    Yes I agree and it’s not a small amount, or I’d let it go. It’s about 9 tournaments they are holding money for.

    Covid and team fees

    So bringing this backup. Basically the organization told us to pound sand, they claim they cannot give us a refund since they are non-profit, which I know is not true. Can we report them to someone, I can't even get a break down of what was leftover from the coaches of the team.

    That makes sense.
