My DD is just getting ready to come back after wrist surgery. She is saying that her catchers mitt is too heavy and she's worried about being able to use it. I was hoping someone had a recommendation of a light mitt that could be easily broken in for her? She is 16 and currently has a...
If it continues, go see an ortho. My dd was complaining about the same thing and we put it off as just overuse and turns out she tore a ligament. She had surgery a month ago for it and could be out a total of 4-6 months.
Update: Surgery scheduled for the 20th. Doctor is saying 4-6 months recovery time. This about broke her heart!
Looks like she tore her Ligamentum subruentum ligament. He can't show me the tear on the MRI but says based on symptoms and the way it moves he feels that is what it is.
LOL... I bet that would get very annoying after a few times.
I'll never forget my dd's first year 12U rec and the other team kept saying
" there's a runner on 3 and she really has to pee... hit her home, hit her home"
still makes me giggle its too silly.
My daughters coach recommended this drill
Short Bat Bottom Hand Tee Drill
Any thoughts? Useful? My dd thinks it is a waste of time. Thought I would check with the experts!

I just picked up a Rawlings 11 3/4" glove for my 14 yr old shortstop/pitcher.
Her middle school coach asked her why she had a baseball glove.
Is this glove too small?
She plays Rec, travel & middle school right now.
If it makes a difference she is 5 ft 2in and 125 lbs.

My dd is in middle school and she said her coach worked with the other schools and they will play two 5 inning games so he can have 2 teams.
I'm not sure if it is a good thing yet or not but could that be an option in your area??
So after reading all the recommendations on this site, I contacted Drakemir and here is my 14yr olds new glove. It was only 2 weeks late for her birthday but that was my fault for ordering it so close to her birthday.
She picked the colors and absolutely loves it and can't wait to start...
You are spot on. The high school coach was hosting a pitching clinic with a local college pitcher who taught her exactly this. We didn't go to her for long because I found this site and to be honest the push from 12 was bothering her shoulder. It is not a very comfortable or natural...
Thank you to everyone who responded. I was nervous to post her video for fear I was steering her in the wrong direction!
I can't wait to show her all the comments and recommendations especially the pictures and videos. I think that will help a lot!
Thanks! I will definitely check that out. I was trying to tell her she needed to stop her glove had from swimming but no clue how to explain how to stop it.
I will have to watch her video again to find the bend at the waist. I didn't notice that, will definitely take your advice though.
