    Covid-19 Fallout with the NCAA?

    Core Comes Through Again!

    I needed to order some bat bags, catchers bags and batting helmets for my team. I looked around the area and really couldn't find anything I liked for the price point I budgeted for so I hit core up on the off chance he could help. Sure enough, he came through with a deal I couldn't refuse. What...

    A Cautionary Tale: Proper Stretching Is Important!

    Most athletes/players, especially the younger ones, are pretty limber. Many play multiple sports and are constantly active from the time they wake until the time they go to bed. My daughter was one of those younger players once. She stretched just enough as many do at that age. As her coach, I...

    Serendipity at it's Best!!!! A Big Shout Out To Core!!!!!!!

    As many of you know, after getting DD into playing College ball, I have since dropped back to take a 12U TB team. One other thing I may have failed to mention is that our organization was decimated last year by a mass exodus of teams leaving and finding other homes. This year, my 12U team and an...

    The Truth About Composite Bats as I See It....

    I'm sure many of you expected to see this post by coresoftabll20. I'm sorry to disappoint you. For those that would like to continue to read, just know that this is from the perspective of a member whose daughter grew up a "metalhead." By this I mean, my DD, Emily, loved her Rocketechs and...

    SOftball Fix...

    For those of us that don't live in the best climate year round for SB, just an FYI, there's an international indoor tournament between some of our young USA teams playing against other countries' National teams/Olympic teams. My DD is the catcher for Chaos United. She had one heck of a game...

    Bittersweet Day

    It's a bittersweet day today. Today is the day we move DD into her college dorm room of her Freshman year. Of course, she's excited, DW's a nervous wreck and I'm...well I'm a bit melancholy myself. Classes start Monday and softball practice starts on Tuesday. Where did the time go? Yesterday DD...

    NC Softball Board?

    Hi all. Long Story short, I'm taking my team on a roadtrip the weekend of July 21st since there are several college coaches from the Greensboro area (within a 1 1/2 hour drive) interested in a couple of my players. Due to injuries and a recent traffic accident among my players, I've found myself...

    It NeverCeases to Amaze Me How Appalling Most MLB catching Mechanics are.

    Supposedly, some are making hundreds of thousands of dollars. Some are making millions. Yet their dropping and blocking mechanics are horrendous. Let alone their receiving skills. Maybe they should let a properly trained SB catcher behind the plate. Hell, I have 12U catchers that would put many...

    IMO, this is one of the premier Winter Showcases in the NE, MW continental U.S. This is what got my DD recruited. The Queen of Diamonds has completely redesigned the Winter version of their events. TheQSport.com is taking applicants for the new line up for the winter version of Queen of...

    Another Great FB Post

    One of my friends asked "Why do you pay so much money for your kids to do all their sports”? Well I have a confession to make; I don't pay for my kids to to do sports. Personally, I couldn't care less about what sport they do. So, if I am not paying for sports what am I paying for? - I pay for...
