I thought in general batters should not be choking up on her bat.
Has that changed in the last few years?
Always tried to have hands at bottom of bat, 2 strikes maybe choking up.
When should a batter choke up, if ever?
I think something is wrong when they start the game choking up.
Since patter unintentional hickjacked 34" thread ...
In whiffle ball I had an unhittable curve ball. We played a bunch and friends and they tried to duplicate it with no luck. Something about angle of arm and spin.
One afternoon game I was starting BB P, I got pounded like never before...
I am surprised I was not kicked out off DD's Team. Did a lot of stuff which was strange in any world let alone today.
It is 150 degrees out with no clouds, just miserable. DD''s game is at 3, urr. We spent all morning filling water balloons which we put in coolers with ice.
Towards end of...
DD has been pounded, I think their still scoring runs.
1 reliever for soxs.was. upset that unp did not call.strike. yelling at ump for the entire time. Yelling at unp when he was taken out.
Other reliever for soxes threw a perfect strike. Ball. Did not phase him at all. Next pitch...
I probably posted this before but playing 3rd IMO takes a special person. I hated when DD was there. Lot of hate here.
BB LL we got to regionals our 3rd baseman might have been our best SS, he was the only one with enough balls to play 3rd. He played 3rd and was unhappy about it and we...
I live in Naperville IL and have some softball stuff I am hoping to find a good home for.
Some balls and a spring loaded pitching machine. Same as they use in SWS 8U.
Pitching thing is only good for about 10U and under.
All free if anyone has any interest PM me.
I have been thinking of past for some reason., running thru DD's softball career in my head. It is impossible to pick 1 memory there are so many. I am going to pick 1, if you would like to contribute please do.
So DD's best friend decides they should play SB, 8U. Friend is uncomfortable and...
Last 2 years have been hard on Dd. She is one of better players and HC sat in her in pool games. Parents and AC yelled at them but did not make too much of a difference, All the players were invited back, DD was exclud from email. She did not play or practice this year.
She is going to walk...
Random question ....
What do you umpires like to be called.
Umpire, ump, hey you, Jim, blue? Do you care?
I am taking a**, moron, blind, geriatric, idiot off the discussion because I assume these are not good.
DD has been playing a lot of OF, she and the other players have IMO habit of getting on top of players making the catch. Backup is useless because if it goes by primary fielder it is going by her to.
I keep telling, maybe yelling, at her to stay 20' back or so.
For OF, is there a general rule...
Fall double header.
DD was 6 for 7 with a walk, 3 doubles and a triple. Not bad for batting last in lineup, like always.
She also got to pitch 1 inning, not sure where that came from. 1K, 1 walked, no runs scored. Go Sally in left field, she caught the other 2 outs. It would have been nice...
I used to occasional here about the rip-it bat on here when they seemed to be pushing them. I have not seen them mentioned in a long time.
Do they still sell them? Are they any good? Are the used ones worth anything?
Has anyone had any Issues that they think came from this site from posting their personal phone number or email address? Businesses do not count.
I have not heard of any which says a lot about this site.
This weekend DD hit a ball between the 1st and 2nd basemen. The other Team only had 8 players, no RF.
We had a runner on 1st and the ball hit her, it would have gone through if it didn't hit her. Umpire called runner out. Runner kicked the ball back to 1st basemen, so umpire called DD out...
