    The role of Victimoalogy in sports

    Have to admit it's a problem before you can change it. Corrosive and problematic for sports and everyday life always being a victim. Once you've met someone who's truly been a victim or beat adversity (in life or sports) the tales of most athletes struggle is underwhelming. It's funny how most...

    Wonderful advice for TB Coaches

    JV is guaranteed shared playing time where I reside. Varsity has less sharing thus the need to compete. DD has a friend trying to decide and she's leaning JV to get her game time. Plan on watching a couple games this Spring. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    The role of Victimoalogy in sports

    Thanks for the replies. Getting some posts for the mental side of the game. A couple of things about the original post. The issues about being a victim or people in general trying to create human-interest stories using false pretenses. Or at least misleading by omission of facts or context...

    Slappers home to first

    Slappers that can't hit will excel in college pinch running. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    2020 What did SOFTBALL do for you?

    I ended a softball related relationship mid-year harshly. It was bad. Disappointed that it went that way. Inevitable but it just wasn't something anyone enjoys or wants to happen. If Sam's club stocked a 64oz. Twisted Tea I'd have it on ice, in my cooler, ready to share. With the New year upon...

    aluminum fungo bat

    Always told top hand toss if you're a real coach -lol. My shoulder is jacked so until fixed it's a Tanner tee set on high for the time being.

    The role of Victimoalogy in sports

    In almost every athletes sports story and especially in female sport stories it seems that a victim senerio is played over and over. It's overused and it's depressing to say the least if not skirting the truth just a bit at times. I'm not talking about athletes that were truly victims of thier...

    Good news

    Would Nevada be cheaper for teams in CA wanting to play?

    Wonderful advice for TB Coaches

    The players that are projects are fairly easily identifiable. Higher tier teams won't have many of these types of players, if any. To many unknowns with projects. 2nd tier teams will take and try to develop but can be Hit or Miss. I'm positive my daughter was originally a suspect on her...

    Can one player...

    One player can make all the difference. When you add player who is playing above all others on a team those players who are naturally competitive take note. Two outcomes are possible when adding a player that's immediately the better player. If you can use that player to highlight drills and...

    For your viewing fun

    Other than the exaggerated experience and endless name dropping why is this stirring people up? I see a ton of these people on a popular racing forum and they get flamed until they go away. What makes this person different to get all this attention?

    Holiday tip?

    Usually get my people a nice bottle of bourbon. $40-$80 range. If they weren't drinkers I'd find something else. The sport store gift cards never disappoint.

    Late Night Practices

    Strange to have it that late for sure. I've wondered if having a late practice would really push a players concentration and help them prepare for an enviable late Saturday or Sunday game. With all that being said it's only 4.

    Taking a Chess-Like Approach to Softball Skills Development

    Great article/post as usual Ken. "By keeping your eye on the long game you’ll ultimately experience far more success – and have a lot more fun in the process." It's a marathon, not a sprint! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    Wonderful advice for TB Coaches

    The inability of smaller softball markets to run larger rosters with capable talent will always insure they'll rarely have enough firepower to consistently compete at the highest levels. Top small market players however will routinely get picked up by large markets, and those organizations out...
