    Heavy balls? Total control balls?

    I have the TCB 74 and 82 balls. I like the smaller 74 ball for tee work, but use an old one piece aluminum bat so as not to wreck expensive multi-piece bats. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    What a difference a year makes. Thanks DFP

    Congratulations on a great game last night. Six innings with only 2 walks is a solid night in the circle! For the leaping, we're on a similar path to recovery. I just re-watched the 2-step drill video and at 7:55 Mike mentions getting the stride knee out as fast as possible. This will be the...

    What a difference a year makes. Thanks DFP

    You've made great progress. I'm working on getting my 2009 DD to stop leaping. Any advice on drills or cues that helped your daughter? Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Mask Watch

    I feel masks promote confidence in the early stages. Confidence is fragile at any age and this game is a game of failure. Play/coach the game in a manner that helps your player reach their potential and stop caring about what other people think. Maybe Major Leaguers should stop wearing leg...

    Fielders Chest protectors?

    My 10U DD wore a G-Form last year. Still in great shape. She can wear again this year and hopefully pass down to her younger sister. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    New travel team /501c(3) status or not

    Your situation is always unique no matter how similar it may seem and your lawyer will provide you the counsel you're seeking. Additionally, read the instructions for the form as it will answer a lot of the FAQ's. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    New travel team /501c(3) status or not

    Before you do anything, apply for your EIN. It takes 2 minutes and you will get an instant response. Second, it sounds like you should check out the 1023-EZ. $275 to file form as an unincorporated association. This form saves time and paperwork if it fits your needs. It's not hard. Good luck...

    SS and the throw down!

    In my experience, I find it's hard to wait on the ball to get to the bag. We're moving to 10U next year and I teach SS to straddle the bag as opposed to playing the front corner. The ball will move faster than any player can, so, I choose to eliminate the reaching problem until they get old...

    Best place to buy a bat for deals?

    Hock Sports in FL. Ask for Ron. That is if Core doesn't have what you're looking for. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    Lizard Skin Komodo Pro Batting Gloves

    I really liked Neumann Original Tackified Receiver Gloves when I played baseball. Yes, they're football gloves. Tough and tacky. Can be had for $30. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    for younger plays, which would direction do you like

    I just bought an Akadema AJB 74*for my 2009 DD. After watching her drop a foul ball down 3rd base line and seeing her POS $25 Easton glove flop around like LeBron, I knew it was time to graduate to mid-grade. This glove can be had for around $80. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    Unapproved Bat Weight

    http://showmestrength.com/should-you-warm-up-with-a-weighted-bat-baseball-research-review-i/ I'm too lazy to find anything more "scholarly," but yes, studies have disproved the myth of the heavy bat increasing bat speed. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    Two outs, time's almost out...

    Not if I had the ball...:p Again, basketball, football, and any other sport that has a clock should not be mentioned. Clock management SHOULD be a strategy in those sports. Softball wasn't intended to have a clock and only adds a greasy film to the sport of travel softball. The "clever" coaches...

    Two outs, time's almost out...

    My initial reaction was this is a douchebag move. Even if it works out and the home team wins, everyone outside your circle still thinks you're a jerk. Do you care? If not, you were probably that person keeping score in tee ball just a few years earlier or an 8U trophy hunter. These types tend...

    Team helmets carrying bag

    When boys get lice, shave their head...girls, not happening. We had team bats, helmets, maybe even shared a piece of gum or two. Times have certainly changed. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    Demarini CF9 or Louisville Slugger Xenon plus?

    The LXT Hyper (-11) may be hotter than the CF-9 out of the wrapper. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VUNMcjVFo0Q - LXT Hyper (-11) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzm3_P4pXc4 - CF-9 (-11)

    whats the hotter bat out of the wrapper CF8 or CF9?

    My DD has the CF8, but I like both. I know you stated "out of wrapper," but our perceptions can be shaped by a recent round of BP with a broken in CF8 :-). I'd buy the CF8 and save the $$. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk

    Need Bat advice Please

    I'd say that's the nature of -11 bats, to a degree. My daughter is 7 and has swung the CF8 for about a year, no issues. I have 12 girls on my team swinging -11 LXT's and CF's, no problems...yet. I think you would have better longevity by moving to -10 CF if she is a -11 bat buster. If she can...
