I didn't say that anybody should slap their leg,my daughter was,but not going to anymore,we are working on getting rid of that.Thats just like saying " just because the Orioles,cant seem to win,that everybody in Baltimore should lose too"Well then, everyone should slap their leg.
Men do not slap their legs. They also don't throw screwballs, drop curves or flip change ups. They do not pre motion swing their arms back because it shows the hitter the ball. They don't drag their push foot with it facing second base. No hello elbows either.A friend that pitched in men's fastpitch, once told me that if a male pitcher ever slapped his leg like that, all the guys on the opposing team would stand up and start doing the same thing. I wonder if any men slap their leg?
And men don't have to work twice as hard to be considered a athlete,or get an recognition for their sport like women and girls do.So whats your point about men?Men do not slap their legs. They also don't throw screwballs, drop curves or flip change ups. They do not pre motion swing their arms back because it shows the hitter the ball. They don't drag their push foot with it facing second base. No hello elbows either.
Well alrighty then,well my daughter throws 500 pitches a day and works out everyday,just kidding,well my dream was to eat chips and drink sodas on my own leather couch watching reruns of I love Lucy!But I don't have time because my daughter wants to play softball and other sports.She is the one with her own dream,and by the way,I never went along with what some of these fathers do,thats why my daughter doesn't do the hello elbow and why we went to Bill Hillhouse and she goes to batting coach,that played baseball at a higher level then these dads.I do see your point and I agree,but it seemed like you where knocking women & girls in your post.As far as the nonsense on these boards go,nobody has ever said that you have to do what is said here,I read and pick and choose what I find helpful and discard the rest.My daughter only throws 2 pitches,peel drop and change up,that Bill has her working on.I would ask you what's your point. I would say that a lot of what girls do was invented by fathers who are living out their athletic dreams through their daughters. They have them throw 300 pitches a day every day. Work out twelve months a year. Try anything that any boob tells them to try. Have them work on 9 different pitches and in the meantime frustrate the heck out of their daughters. One only has to look at the best of the best female pitchers and you will see that they resemble the men more than all of the nonsense that gets thrown around on Boards like these.
haha..so she is the KIT (ie Kitten) that I have heard about! You might want to just let her beat that little leg raw!bobbyb - the timing of the leg hit is exactly like Cats.
But my DD hits the leg harder.
But of course my DD throws better ;-)
I was going to say earlier…that to me…most of them have some reason such as this, or they look kul or its what makes them accurate or gets their rhythm going. When it is of course they don't like change…and like to stay in their comfort zone.Through reading here for many months I took the initiative to tell my DD to try and stop this slapping but she thinks it takes away from her speed.
