    Every dark cloud has a silver lining...

    There are discussions that HS softball will go ahead, but parents won't be allowed at the games. Perhaps this should be adopted permanently...just to prevent the spread of future viruses.

    Softball plays--question for RAD

    @RADcatcher played at the top of the softball pyramid. It is really great to have someone available with that kind of experience. I'm curious about defensive positioning. For the coverage on steals at 2B, did you change who covered on a steal?

    Michael Jordan's Ten Rules for Success

    Good video putting together some "talking points" about Jordan's career. #4 is, in my opinion, the most important for parents to understand. Learning about failure is important. It is OK to fail...we all do. Parents try hard to take failure away from kids, by making excuses or by...
