Dang pattar, you're reaching way back for this one! Guarantee this one is being Googled! Sorry about the Severs, heel pain is terrible!
I don't watch a lot of baseball anymore but the Mendoza line was frequently mentioned when I watched games growing up..

Another tournament this weekend. If the team can get their BA over the Mendoza line I will be satisfied... :rolleyes:

We've settled into a pattern of me throwing front toss to her 2 or 3 times a week and her doing tee work on her own a few times a week. Front toss work usually consists of about a bucket of 45 degree SNF swings followed by a bucket of feet together swings and then finally one to two buckets of regulars swings. Some days are better than others in terms of attitude but at least I am getting to work with her.

Her heel is hurting again (she has a bit of Severs) so I am guessing she is going through another growth spurt 🤷‍♂️
DD turned 11 in July and has been dealing with this for 3 years now. Gets worse during basketball, which just started, and really flares up during tournaments. Cleats really make it worse and every pair of turf shoes I get her she won't wear even though they help, kids :rolleyes:. What are X braces?

What are X braces?
I actually got BodyProx Ankle Support Braces (which are similar and cheaper) based upon this article:

For 20 bucks total for both feet I figured it was worth a try. She has worn them with both her bball sneakers and cleats and said they have helped. The test will be when she has 4 games in a day for either her hoops or sball teams.
