hello everyone i am new to the forums. i have a travel team i put together this year and this is my first travel team. We are mostly 9 year old girls and we have a ten year old pitcher. She is extremely talented. The problem is when she starts to walk a few batters or the defense makes a few errors she blows up and gets a horrible attitude. She won't listen to me or the other coach. I try to calm her down, but it is almost impossible. Our back up pitchers are only 9 and they can only pitch in the lower 30 mph range. I want to ring her neck sometimes. What do I do? Should I bench her? The problem with putting her in the feild is she pretty much gives up on softball all together after she falls apart. I have tried to be positive with her, but she blocks everything I say out. When she strikes out or gets out on the bag she walks back to the dugout. I put my hand out to give her five and she walks past me. It is driving me crazy. I work with her every day at pitching and at practice she is very pleasent. I have spoke with her mother, but i haven't really got nasty about anything yet. Any suggestions?
