Exactly. IDK how it will go for GK. I know she works hard, is determined, good student etc. Her path was not guaranteed early so in our opinion, watching from the outside, she's worked hard to earn the opportunity. I suspect she will work hard at BSU.
Our HS Season ended with Corona lockdown before first games were played. so no 2020 stats from HS.
The 291 K's is probably not a typo. She dominated her Junior year. The HS team lost in the semifinals last year in state playoffs. As I recall the 2 runs that scored were result of errors...
I check ours in addition to the 10 Ken had
Extra Screws for helmets
Athletic tape- great for bat grip emergency repair
Lizard Tape bat grip for longer term replacement
Female hygiene products (for emergency)
Gorilla Towel for pitchers
I don't have enough softball's behind my name so my comment may not be warranted...but We like Casey
Smith (out front hitting), Matt Antonelli, Matt Lisle (who may be "controverisal" to some but he's had very good success at the Softball college level everywhere he's been). I guess we're not...
equating this to softball
You can choose to not go to store that requires masks because you don’t agree shoppers should wear masks. Or choose to only go to stores that require masks because you think that’s safest. Same with softball......if you’re in agreement with measures team/TD are...
we may or may not have a vaccine. As of now, I believe there has been a vaccine for the corona virus family
at some point we can’t live if fear. Fear does not stop death but it does stop life.
we have flattened the curve. We have not overwhelmed the healthcare system
the path whiporee...
Exactly. And each family has to decide where that “less risk” line is. And accept the choices of their teammates families if they chose to play
but honestly you’re making the same decision when you go to grocery store
Isn't that part of the problem? People need information to make informed decisions for themselves and their family.
Would societal decisions be different if this was separated out? Would you feel more comfortable being "out" in society or resuming softball with this information?
In our state...
What mitigation activities would you need to see to resume play?
Hand sanitizer in every dugout?
5 porta pottys instead of 4?
mask required for all people in the park, including coaches and players?
masks required for all spectators?
a face touching "spotter"?
At what point are dealing with...
And that's the thing. You can have all the mitigation you want at the field. but you also can't control sally who had 3 sleep overs in the last week and comes to practice.
Do we ban children who's parents work in healthcare because they might have contracted Covid at work and given it to...
If you've washed your hands and now at your desk....not an issue. Shake hands with 20 people then sit at desk...might have a n issue.
I'm in same boat. I realized how many times i touch my face. Exactly hand resting on chin and then the occasional DOH forehead to palm. :)
Sluggers, great points.
Ultimately isn't it each family and then teams decision on what "feels" safe? They have to decide for themselves based on risk or perceived risk. There are several on this forum, umpires and coaches that appear to have shut things down for the...
You're right. Vigilance is important. Taking unnecessary risks is not wise.
Everyone's threshold for that is different.
You can go to time out if you want. :)
Humanity is not as bad as it seems at times. Knuckleheads are everywhere. We have retail establishments. Had a...
TMIB-here's the issue. How far does the Hy-Vee employee take it? Banks and most retail stores corporate training is to NOT confront but to comply with the "bad guys" and not to stop or to chase. At what point would you draw the line for the employee to intervene or not?
Hiring security or...
