    Inbox Quota

    I'm not too computer savvy, so not sure if this could even work. Wondering if the number of allowed messages could be increased? I like to save the ones that are helpful and have tips and such, which wind up being more than the quota allowed to store. I don't have a problem copying and pasting...

    Leftie - which foot leads??

    DDs coach has insisted she lead off with her right leg. Noticed today when she was running to 1st, she looked somewhat off - WAAAY slower than usual. She volunteered the information after we got home. She said that her coach told her to lead off with her right leg, which is obviously the weaker...

    When parents won't be quiet....

    Today, our HS team travelled 2 1/2 hrs away for their ballgames (A and B). I have decided this year that I am going to keep a score book just for my peace of mind. I want to be able to look back and see what DD needs to work on, how she batted, etc.. There was a "newbie" parent sitting in the...

    Parental Competitiveness???

    Hey...here is a question that I am asking to see if it's just my area or if this happens everywhere...:confused: DD goes to a very small private school. This year, there are 17 girls on the softball team. DD has always played 1st for B team. Due to lack of players, thought she might would have...

    Live pitching during practice??

    Would love to know what y'all's opinion on this is. DDs school ball team has been practicing all summer and started every day this week. Tonight was the first night that the batters have seen live pitching. The pitchers haven't been pitching to them - have been using a pitching machine. The...

    Rec Ball Nightmare

    DD (13) played fall travel ball - horrific experience for her. Decided to play rec ball in another town (our program here stinks). Signed her up for 16u (VERY little "committed" girls there in this age division). She has been on a team that is the bottom of the barrel (one of three teams), which...

    DD hit with ball...when to go on field?

    16u Scene: "Balls in", blue yells from behind the plate. All of the infield balls are in...still one zipping through the outfield. DD is at 3rd facing home. CF zings the ball dead towards her - I scream her name, too late - heard it hit, she goes down, the crowd hushes. I sit and watch as...

    Summer Camps MS-TN Area

    Question for those who live in this neck of the woods...looking into sending dd to a softball camp this summer. Memphis State, Ole Miss, Mississippi State and Rhodes are all having camps. How do you pick the best camp for your daughter? Mississippi State is the only one that is offering a...

    Men's Slow-Pitch Bats???

    My dd and I went to the local park Saturday to watch her old coach's team play (yeah, pretty slow for social lives around here!). In between games, his wife told me that they played a team in the league here who used men's slow-pitch softball bats during a tournament game. The head of the...

    Help with hitting, please!

    Please excuse the length of the video. I have no clue how to cut it down to just a snippet. Please give me some advice for my dd on her hitting - form and such. She asked me to video and post so she can get some feedback! Thanks! :)

    Weekend pick-ups??

    Hey! Frustrated to the limit with the team dd is on now. No practices this week, no games - nothing. My question is this: how many coaches of travel ball or teams looking for a player for weekend tourneys (fill-in) actually check the eteamz site? I was thinking of posting 12U looking for team or...

    When is enough???

    Here is a question I'm posting to all of y'all who are parents who happen to have good friends who have dd's who play softball, too. It is lengthy, but I need some sound advice. If I asked around here with my "friends", someone would rat me out and it would be a stink, which is really what I am...

    Rec ball and travel ball

    My dd plays 12u rec - 3rd season of playing rec.. Not ready to travel yet - most of the girls who play competitive around here have been swinging a bat since t-ball. Nonetheless, she also played for a State Championship team last season for our school. We have begun practicing with the rec team...

    "Sharing" equipment?

    Hey, y'all! Softball season has begun again here in North Mississippi. I have a problem, parentally I guess. This is my dds 3rd season playing (12 now). She absolutely adores it and is working with a pitching and batting coach. I bought her two bats last week from Ebay - both brand spanking new...

    Stinging hands, anyone??

    Hey, y'all! I'm sure you're going to get sick of seeing me post - just trying to learn! At practice last night, my dd was the first to bat off of the pitching machine. We've told her to wear her batting gloves and sometimes she does, sometimes she doesn't. I was talking to another mother and...

    Question for coaches, players and supporters...

    I've posted before that we are newbies, I guess, to this whole fastpitch realm. This is my dd's 2nd season playing. She played with the All-Star team last year. Might not should have, but there weren't really enough in our area from which to choose. This year, she was ready. I gave her the...

    "Stealing" 2nd question....

    I read a thread last night about this and this morning, can't find it again for reference. I'm new, so bear with me. We play Dizzy Dean ball. We are fixing to go to the World Series next weekend. During regular league play, I noticed that sometimes (but not often), the girl who hit the ball...

    Couple questions...

    Hey, y'all! I'm obviously a newbie here. My dd, 11 (turned in the Spring), is playing her 2nd year of rec league. This year, we had a phenomenal group of coaches, as well as players, and took the league championship. She was chosen for All-Stars, which we have agreed to do. At the end of the...
