Catching probably isn't a great idea for me any more but I'll tough it out. I've taken a bad one to the shin and also seem to have a permanent dark purple toe nail now. I can deal with a lot but I'm not ok
with one to the face. About eye level up I'm about completely blind for some reason and in...
Im having a hard time seeing balls when catching Dd inside. I'm looking on Amazon
at masks. What's best a fielding mask or a catchers mask like the ump wears? I'm trying
to stay pretty cheap. Maybe $40 or less?
I would spend more time on side throws and A lot less time on full pitches. You'll both be happier. My Dd is 12 now. We've seen a few pitching coaches. We have a Tincher coach I like,Practice is much more enjoyable for us.
HS ball should be geared to win however I’m not a fan of freshman playing varsity. We have a small school and it’s very political. Coaches from travel are slowly entering the picture(parents). The dugout is going to be real full over the next few years.(if they can wiggle in!)
I'd say in the grand scheme of things I'd rather see rec survive. That's where games are mostly played around here. I blame Rec and travel organizations for the problem but of course parents are the root cause.
I seen a 13yr switch this year.She had a hard nose HE coach her parents insisted was the best pitching coach around. She was
very inconsistent last year. The parents wouldn't listen to anybody. I guess the HE coach was well known around their area.
Finally the high school coach talked some...
My wife was assistant of a rec team of 10u last year. She told the sassy girls any problems and they would sit the
bench right beside her. Funny ,towards the end of the season she had two of the sassy girls right beside her at all times
ready to go to any positions she told them. The head coach...
Totally understand k power. But it's so bad. Coaches Dd looked ok. Probably 3 or 4 were alright. Another thing I didn't understand is
he had a guest 16u coach run the practice. He talked to me and the 12u coach and said. He can only use 5 kids from the same
school on a team. He said he looks...
I was going to go off on a rant and decide to ask you coaches a question.
Have any of you turned away better talent to maintain and develop the kids you have? This situation envoles a team that won 1 game during winter season. Made up of small town kids.
Several girls moved up, I took Dd over...
Coaches have a hard time cutting. The coach more than likely has kids that have
been dedicated going in off season and what not. I was at a open gym the last day
before tryouts. All these girls flooded in. Where they been? Coach just smiled and
said this always makes it hard. Not as talanted...
