    Embrace and Enjoy the DD you have

    I am writing this to potentially help the parents of some of the younger DD's out there. It is a lengthy post and you may want to stop reading here. You need to embrace the DD you have and not try to make her the DD you want. My DD got cut from her first travel team at age 8. She broke her...

Her mom is a professional photographer and has a picture that clearly shows that she is tagging the girl with her glove and has the ball in her...

    Advice needed

    DD played in a showcase tournament this past week. She had emailed several college coaches and several came and watched games she played. To be honest she had a terrible weekend at the plate. My thoughts are she should email those coaches and thank them for coming and say she had a bad...

    A different HS story
