    Bittersweet (caution, shameless bragging inside)

    The title of another thread states "Tomorrow is a sad day". For my family, tomorrow will be a bittersweet day, DD will be playing her very last High School softball game tomorrow at 2 pm. It is the Section Championship game against their arch-rival; quite fitting if you ask me :) There have...

    Uniform pants dilemma - any help appreciated

    DD's on a new team this summer and the coach ordered Under Armor uniforms. DD is too wide for the pants (XXL). She currently has Victory pants (XL) that fit her like a dream but I can't get them in Grey. Does anyone have a good uniform supplier that can get 3XL pants in grey and navy? If...

    Last Year: A parent’s thoughts

    DD is a senior and is just starting her last year of TB before going off to college. I have so many memories… Yesterday we were ½ hour early for DD’s pitching lesson. I was watching the lesson before hers, a kid about 11 or 12 just starting out. She and her Dad probably have no idea what...

    2 scorekeeping questions

    1) Ball is grounded to pitcher who throws to first. Throw goes into the dirt well in front of and directly to first baseman but is not fielded. Batter/Runner would have been out if play was made. Who does error go to, pitcher or first baseman? 2) Hard line drive to right field. Fielder is...

    First offer

    DD played in her first California showcase of the season and after her last game was approached by a JC coach from Alabama. He asked that Mom and I join the conversation and after a long discussion he offered her a very good package. I gotta tell you; it is AWESOME that there is a back up plan...

    Favorite photo - 2012

    DD is a pitcher first but she can hit the ball hard! This photo was in our local newspaper after the Section Semi-final game. So far it is my favorite softball photo of her this year. What is YOUR favorite photo this year?

    I saw my first TRIPLE PLAY!!!

    Last night DD's HS team played their arch rival in conference. For the past 10+ years these 2 teams have butted heads for the conference title and have ALWAYS had very very close games. In the top of the 6th the rival had gotten the bases loaded with 0 outs; batter hits a HARD line drive to...

    Softball Miles on your car

    I was just estimating how many miles per year I drive for softball. I don't reccomend this activity :confused: I purchased a new car in 2006, the year DD started playing softball and in 2008 I purchased a new truck. Both vehicles had 0 miles on them and now both are within 250 miles of 90,000...

    DD Pitching

    This is my DD at practice last week. She is currently working to increase speed. Input is appreciated. Sorry about the crummy video. I am not a video guy so if you need to slow it down or whatever, feel free...

    How important is SPEED?

    Let’s assume we are talking about a 15 year old sophomore in high school who wants to pitch for a top 50 D1 softball school. She has above average GPA and scored in the top 25 percentile on SAT’s. 1) How important is speed? 2) What do you consider the minimum speed this kid should throw? 3)...

    Tryouts with no intentions

    Is it fair to a team/coach if a player goes to a tryout with no intention of joining that team? 16U TB/Elite Player is committed to another organization and has been offered position on one of 2 teams that she will accept. She wants to go to other tryouts to get the opinions of other coaches...

    Proud Dad

    For the first time in four years DD's HS coach allowed a freshman on the varsity squad. DD is a pitcher and 1st baseman. She has started all but two games this season and has finished all games started. She and a senior pitcher are sharing circle time, each with equal innings. Until last...
