    Good Thing, Bad Thing???

    The Governor of Illinois announced the remainder of the school year had been cancelled. That means no spring sports, which softball is in Illinois. I'm sure many other States will be forced to make the same decision soon, if they haven't already. So, is it a good thing for your DD keeping...

    I hope the Chinese Reconsider.

    It seems the Myer clan has found another way back into coaching. With any luck Chinese Softball will reconsider. I know as a parent I would REALLY feel uncomfortable sending my DD to the other side of the world to a coaching staff with their history. Cities in Alabama turn away China's...

    A Clueless Medical Professional

    As if young female athletes don't have enough issues to deal with. It sounds like the mom put the nurse in her place. https://www.msn.com/en-us/health/wellness/mom-fights-back-after-nurse-body-shames-her-13-year-old-daughter-she-is-ignorant/ar-BBNbzhP?li=BBnbfcL

    Talk about beaning a girl on purpose.

    If this turns out to be true these two guys should be banned forever from coaching. https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/more-sports/report-new-hampshire-youth-baseball-coaches-planned-to-%e2%80%98bean%e2%80%99-league%e2%80%99s-lone-girl-to-intimidate-her-into-leaving/ar-AAvR0OL?li=BBnba9I

    Keeping the upright while pitching.

    One of the things that I see a lot of times with pitchers who struggle with control and timing is they will lean their head over towards their front. Often it leads to balance and timing problems. When I see this I will ask them what part of their body keeps them balanced. They will usually...

    Not softball related, but scarey.

    This player needs to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law for sucker punching a coach twice. https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/ncaafb/video-tennessee-state-player-expelled-after-punching-strength-coach-on-sideline/ar-BBEWebr?li=BBnb7Kz

    ULL Coach put on administrative leave.

    I would really think hard about sending a daughter to this school in general if this is the way the administration treats a coach who is standing up for his players and all the women athletes at the school.

    Not Softball -- Great call by the Ref Group

    This is what America has come down to. Catering to a big-mouth crybaby. That guy is one of the worst examples of a role model in today's sports. The removal of the female ref was absolutely weak-kneed. Glad to see the body who supplies the refs to Adidas call them out for being gutless...

    Courtesy Runner -- Team out of subs and still uses one.

    Strict ASA tournament rules. No local rules apply. A team has used their entire lineup. No subs available. Catcher reaches base. Coach calls time and asks for a courtesy runner. Umpire fails to realize the team has no eligible runners left and grants them the runner. Defensive team throws...

    Delayed interference call?

    Thought I'd start a new thread instead of hijacking the other. Hopefully one of the umps can answer this. I haven't had time to research it. Can there be a delayed interference call applied at the end of a play? My understanding is when interference happens it's an immediate dead ball...
