    Gorilla Gold

    Just my two cents - I'm going to have my dd stop using GG. Too much hassle with other coaches, umps and so forth...Had an issue this weekend in an ASA rules tournament and don't want her labeled as a cheater. Ump had her stop using it in 3rd inning after strong complaints from opposing coaches...

    Great advice -- I'll find a parent a few years ahead of us!

    Who do you listen to for advice on your player's development?

    Hi Parents - I'm the father of a 13yr old pitcher (plays mostly 12U TB). My DD is one of the more advanced pitchers in our area (especially if you compare pitchers of the same size). Velo, accuracy, awareness is up there. Here's where I'm struggling. My wife and I are not from softball families...

    Fake Bunts - Giving up Strikes

    Again great replies -- yes, as she's gotten stronger her swing has changed and in a cage with an instructor or coach - she is solid back net hitter. As a few of you have mentioned -- I believe it's part mental and part timing mechanism. Adding in having an aggressive coach gets in her head...

    Fake Bunts - Giving up Strikes

    Hi there - Father of a 12U player (and rear't coach on team). My daughter has historically been a strong hitter. High contact rate with decent power. This spring, this has disappeared and she is striking out at a very high rate. In looking at her plate appearances - what I and some other parents...

    Spin rate

    How are folks measuring spin? Do you have access to a facility with a Rapsodo or Hittrax that you can measure with? The price point on these seem still a bit too high for the average family to have on their own. Been thinking of getting my 12/13yr old's spin measured...more out of curiousity!

    Newbie Coach - LBR Rule Nuance Question

    Hi There - I help coach a 12u rec team that has the LBR in effect. Each team has about 3-4 "aware" players who play "all-star" travel, but the other 8-10 girls only play about 15 games a year. In other words -- the level of play can be very inconsistent. Here's the situation -- Runner on 3rd...

    Vinci Catcher Mitt - Dad/Coach Use -- Does it fit well?

    All - Long time lurker. I help coach a 11U travel team and am the designated catcher for my daughter for her pitching lessons. Thus I find myself catching 11/12yr old pitchers a lot. I need to upgrade to a real catcher glove (instead of my fielding mitt). I've been reading the threads...
