On a couple of my daughters College games, we've had to text someone we knew at the game and tell them to tell the people closest to the camera on the backstop that we can hear every word they're saying and some of it isn't nice.
DD2 played on 3 teams in 10U after the 1st team "blew up". Then got on a team and has been with the same Coaches for the last 7 years. DD2 and another really good player has been with the team the longest. Fun watching those 2 play all these years.
We just had DD2's signing this morning. Her HS coach, travel coach, badminton coach and former and current hitting coaches were all there. So glad to finally get to this day! Congrats to all who signed today!
We always take the pitcher and catcher to Dutch Bros. for a drink after lessons. Lately I've been giving the young girl that is catching for DD2, 20 bucks. All the catchers we have used over the years have been happy with the drink afterwards.
Here's the list of 18U teams

Most parks opening back up here in AZ. Our schedule is next 2 weekends local. 2 trips to Texas with a local in between in Oct. Some kind of NJ local at end of Oct. or beginning of Nov. And another NJ in Tampa in Nov. Trying to make up for the lost Summer.o_O:LOL:
DW still has a meme on the side of the fridge that says "If you would stop telling players to hit down on the ball......That would be great."
Went to a Big 10 school camp one yerar and the coach preached chopping down on the ball. DD2 was lost trying to do that. A few Dads at the Camp walked by...
DD2 was the number 2 or 3 player in the rec ball draft at age 7. Coach who picked her knew that she pitched and asked my wife "How many pitches does she have?" My wife replied " 2, a ball and a strike".
The next funny story is when DD2 was on her unofficial visit when the Coach told us the...
