What do you guys think? When is the appropriate time to change bat size, is there a tale tale sign that you...

    Top Heavy Hitter

    No video, sorry, but just imagine. Player is extremely top heavy and can't bring anything through. Basically she can't even slot her rear elbow. Rear elbow rises above and some point she looks like she putting a choke hold on herself. My question is has anyone experienced a player too top heavy...

    Obstruction call

    Runner on second, ball hit up the middle, short stop reacts to the ball being hit and contact is made with runner. The pitcher actually fields the ball but the SS initial reaction to the hit caused the collision. If pitcher does not field the ball SS would have. What is the call?

    Sex Offender Spectator

    I was just hit with this yesterday and I want some feedback. One of my best players has a brother in jail for rape. Players mom last night was telling me in casual conversation that he is getting out soon. She started describing him and his tattoos and said "oh you will see them at the games"...

    Coaching Boundaries

    On a recently locked thread a coach had questions about how to handle bruising on a players neck. Many said it wasn't his problem and he was overstepping bounds. I would like to see some discussion and thoughts/justification beside "not my kid". If coaches are going so far as to monitor social...

    Conditioning at Practice.

    Recently on a thread I have come realize that some people think running during practice is not for girls and is actually a sign of poor coaching if done as discipline. In all honesty we do very little running because we are busy practicing but if minds, attitudes, or efforts aren't where they...

    Java/Boardmember DVD Series

    I was just think about buying a Hillhouse pitching DVD and I became curious. When we can expect the first edition of the Java/Boardmember elite pitching dvd's to be available? If not available soon, which Hillhouse video do you guys think is the most comprehensive/instructional for beginners?
