I get excited when my daughters pitch. Can’t sit still. It’s like I’m out there myself nervous as hell. A little anxiety when they bat but not too bad.

A few years back I used to be like that. Now it's just part of the routine. 16u so been at this 8 years now. Hard to believe it honestly. I'd still rather be watching my DD play than just about anything else though. Just not anxious about it anymore. :)

I'm excited for our first tournament coming up the 15th and 16th of June in Western PA. I'll be a new high school grad and will be starting to get everything ready to head off for college the third week of August.

Half hour drive? Are you sure that's travel ball?
I feel ya, luckily I discovered that a shot of Sailor Jerry and 2 CBD gummies will help get a good night's rest before tourney play.

I get fussed at by my DD at EVERY tournament! We get parked, get everything situated, unload the trunk, grab my bucket full of stuff, slam the trunk..........and I'm gone!!! Within seconds I'm 10 feet ahead of her, then 25 feet, then I hear "SLOW DOWN!!" She swears I walk differently at ball parks!
