    Default Glossary of terms on DFP

    We decided to consolidate several previous posts into one, and to move the list here to be more visible. This is a handy little guide for our new members, so when you see certain terms used on the Forum you'll have a place to look them up.

    If you can think of others that should be added, post them below and I will add them to this list. Hope this is helpful!

    DFP = Discuss Fastpitch, the name of this forum
    DD = Darling Daughter (or some variation) - you can probably guess what DS would be...*
    DW = Darling Wife
    DGD = Darling Grand Daughter
    DH = Darling Husband
    DS = Darling Son
    HC = Head Coach
    AC = Assistant Coach
    HS = High School
    MS = Middle School
    IR = internal rotation, a term used here to describe the arm action used in pitching; for a complete explanation see https://www.discussfastpitch.com/soft...classroom.html
    HE = hello elbow, pretty much the opposite approach to IR, where the hand turns toward second base, pushes the ball down the back side of the circle, and the elbow ends up pointing at the catcher. Often taught, rarely if ever used by a high-level pitcher.
    FP = fastpitch
    IMO= in my opinion
    IMHO= in my humble opinion
    JMHO= just my humble opinion
    PC= pitching coach
    BTW = By the way
    IOW = In other words
    FWIW = For what it's worth
    GAGA = Goes along to get along (MTR's term for umpires that alter the way they call a game to appease participants)
    D3K = Dropped third strike
    DMC = Dumb move catcher - unnecessary throw to 1B on D3K (i.e. when batter is already out) that results in runners advancing
    PitC = Princess in the Circle (another name for a pitcher who is not a team player)

    *More for DD:
    • Dear Daughter
    • Diamond Diva
    • Dollar Drainer
    • Devastating Dynamo
    • Dropball Deliverer

    You sexist, you.

    What about Darling Husband? (DH, but that is probably taken in some rule sets that allow a DH)

    Maybe better off in today's world as DSO, Darling Significant Other or P1 for Plus 1

    Thanks MTR. I added DH, and DS (darling son) as well since that come up occasionally.

    Think we'll hold off on the others.
