    Demarini's gathering dust

    Well it is 100% official now that HS season is started DD is hanging up the cleats and started cleaning out her room. She never played travel ball just rec and JV so these are not too badly used. CF-5 31 drop 11 $100 + shipping used two rec seasons and one JV season CF-7 32 drop 10 $150 +...

    FSU player pulled for error?

    Not sure I saw it right but it looked like the FSU right fielder got pulled after making an error that turned a single to a three base error, giving Auburn a runner at third with no outs and handing them the game. Again just seems really odd to pull a senior player in game that has made one...

We have the windows rolled...

    LL changing age reuqirement

    I saw this Little League to phase out 13-year-olds beginning in 2018. Anybody know if they are going to use this for softball too? Guess they got really tired of those 5ft 10in 160lbs kids with facial hair playing with 5ft 2in 95lbs kids on a 60ft bases and 220ft fences. It will help a little...

    I have a great DD

    So I am always telling DD to strive to be better, do more, work harder, etc... I see the opportunities in front of her and just want her to do her best which not matter what she says I always assume is more. She played JV this year for a variety of reasons and in the end it was probably the...

    Batting out of Order?

    I am trying to remember but am not sure I have it exactly right: Batter #4 in line up bats in #3 spot then batter #3 proceeds to bat in #4 spot. #3 gets on then #5 comes up after a couple pitches the other coach appeals and umpire calls BR #3 who is now on 3B out. I am almost positive that...

    1st Brag Thread

    Background: DD has played rec for 5 years, fairly competitive when we where in TX not so much now that we are in CT. She is a good ballplayer and takes the game seriously on the field but would rather do other things than dedicate 100% to softball (which I am completely OK with). This year...
