    College softball prospect camp question

    I totally agree. We are only doing camps at the schools from here on out. Everything else is a total waste of money and time.

    POLL~To move or Get hit by pitches~

    You are risking the chance of serious injury. Deep bruising or maybe even a break. Not worth it.

    What’s the benefit in changing names?

    16u & 18u. Yes, I do know how that goes. Yes, they do want to line you up with other top tier teams. But how do you get in those tournaments to get a chance to show you belong if you're a small organization? They will let you in the tournament because they have other brackets, but you won't play...

    What’s the benefit in changing names?

    So, are you saying that small organizations will not be invited to play in top tear tournaments because of their name and the coaches have no connections? I am trying to decide if I should make the move. Current team has no recruiting coordinator, they don't know any college coaches, regional...

    Spin, Speed or Spot??? in light of the WCWS

    When did I say you can throw 55 and be relevant? No she doesn't and why would that matter?

    Spin, Speed or Spot??? in light of the WCWS

    Exactly!!! If that can't locate whatever pitch it may be, they would be useless.

    Spin, Speed or Spot??? in light of the WCWS

    I didn't realize you said that and you are correct at having enough speed. But if you can't locate your pitches especially with runners on base you are going to have a hard time getting them out. You have to hit your spots to have any effect on the batter. I have seen so many times where...

    Spin, Speed or Spot??? in light of the WCWS

    You can throw hard and fast all day but if you can't locate, bye bye. I've seen so many pitchers who can throw hard but can find the plate to save their lives

    Spin, Speed or Spot??? in light of the WCWS

    No you don't. You can have marginal speed and be very good if you can hit your location with all your pitches. I guarantee if all you have is a fastball you won't last. I guess you're right about 1 thing

    Spin, Speed or Spot??? in light of the WCWS

    Who said speed doesn't matter? One is more important than the other (location). If all you have is a fastball, you all going to get tagged all day, ask Barnhill. You can have marginal speed to set up other pitches. If you hit your locations consistently, you will more than likely own them.

    POLL~About Travel Coach Pay

    I don't think all travel ball coaches should get paid to just chase trophies. In that case park a rec coaches should get paid too. If you are doing some serious traveling, then yes let them get paid but if you're only doing local play. For me, nope. You're right about the 99% of the work is...

    POLL~About Travel Coach Pay

    Parents what are you looking for in a coach and what does YOUR daughter want to do? It also depends on what this coach or GM brings to the table. If you are just a trophy chaser and not helping prepare them for college, then NO you should not get paid. Help them with the recruiting process...

    School ball and not playing for attending a funeral

    It says, coaches should not be a jerk when it comes to excused absences.

    Playing time based on cheering

    If I pay my money to join this team and you bring in guess players who pay nothing. I am going to have a major problem if they play more than my daughter
