DD is playing her first year of 14U, which means spikes. She likes them so far, but this past weekend she pitched (in practice) for the first time in some sloppy conditions and got mud caked on the bottom of her shoes. Then she started sliding all over the place and had a tough time with location.

I went home and ordered these wire brushes from Amazon:


They look like they'll do the trick, but does anyone have a pick or brush that they particularly like?

A $350 bat works well.

Spray the bottoms with pam no stick cooking spray. was suggested to us...surprisingly it worked pretty well. Your results may vary.

What happened to the old tongue depressed or popsicle stick? Or am I just aging myself?

That's what I used to use, but I figured that in today's game of $350 bats there must be some new-fangled gadget that I hadn't heard about.
