    Frustration

    When your DD tried out for the team was she picked up as a pitcher? You only have 8 or 9 kids on the team, with a 1 bracket pitcher? Why do you only have 8 or 9, did you start with more and some left already? How many kids on the team pitch? If the coach is bringing in other pitchers to pitch...

    How do you hit spots?

    That's a good idea thanks for the tip., but I was more or less asking about the mechanics of it, is it a step towards the spot or is in the hand/snap?

    How do you hit spots?

    Question about spots with internal rotation, how do you hit them? My daughter has always been taught to step out for outside pitches in for inside pitches. Her new coach is teaching her to use her arm to change position along with the step, which my daughter does not have a HE release it is more...

    When to move on from pitching coach

    Ya we have never done 30 minute lessons, I feel like hour lessons are sometimes not enough. As far as her progressing, she's kind of plateaued simple because we have not been throwing enough the last few months, that is changing though.

    When to move on from pitching coach

    Thanks, we already have someone in mind if we make a change.

    When to move on from pitching coach

    She listens pretty well, but I just repeat and look for the same things her coach looks for. She is first year 12u and has pitched since first year 10u, she has the fundamentals down fairly well but she still needs to work on them.

    When to move on from pitching coach

    So my DD has been with the same pitching coach for 2 years now, but the last year she has been taking on too many other things and just doesn't have time to do lessons, so instead of going once a week or every 2 weeks we end up going about once a month. Now we love her, she is great with my DD...

    Internal rotation early? Spin trouble

    Looks to me the reason she is stepping to the right of her powerline is because when she drives, her drive foot twists to the right, I would bet if she worked on keeping that straight it would fix her drive direction.

    Incorrect Rule Interpretations - a running list

    On a DTS the batter moves torward the dugout but does not enter it, then runs to first base and is safe. Parents in an uproar she should be out because she made a move to the dugout. She is safe because she did not leave the field of play?

    Diamond Kinetics Ball

    Thanks, I have a flightscope mevo, that I use for pitching speed and it reads spin. I'm just wondering if this gives me any extra data then that.

    Diamond Kinetics Ball

    How accurate in terms of pitch speed is this thing, is it worth the $100?

    Who should the coach tell about practices first, the players or the parents?

    We used to be on a team where the coach would do that the age group was 10u. He would change practice time to earlier in the week or something, then we would find out about it when he would put it out to all the parents the day before. Then he would get mad that some of the parents had plans...

    Cleats

    Anyone's DD's use turf shoes to play in? I've seen some HS pitchers with one turf shoe (the drag foot) and a regular cleat on the other foot. I was thinking of having my DD try just her turf shoes to play in and see how well she does.

    Cleats

    Ringor cleats hands down, I order a size big, then request the inserts they send for free that take up a half size so she doesn't out grow them so fast. She outgrows them before they wear out still. I have a pair on ebay right now, she wore these since August and if she didn't out grow them she...

    Wait, WTF? Is that the real ruling?

    Dead ball meaning foul territory or the dugout? I wouldn't doubt they didn't know the rules, it happened one or two times last year.
