3) Player C's dad says she has 6 pitches. She really has:
a) A medium speed fastball which is sometimes a strike
This is fantastic but #3 needs work. You don’t want to be too easy...

a) Six medium speed fastballs which all look the same
b) Six pitches with different grips but the same spin and release
c) A fastball, a changeup which is the same speed as the fastball and four movement pitches that don’t move.
d) Six different fastballs which are; for a strike, in the dirt, hits the batter, rolled in like a bowling ball, past the catcher & over the backstop.

Yikes, I did pretty well but admit to not knowing several of them. :(

When baserunners bunch up on a base, we tell the girls to tag everyone and let the ump sort it out. Kinda pathetic coaching on our part, I recognize. Perhaps in a week or so you'll share the answers here.

1) Player A wears #23 but Player B joins the team and her parents own a pole barn which is used by the organization for winter workouts so she is given #23 and Player A has to choose a new number. What does Parent A do:
a) Have a public hissy fit
b) Cause a massive online forum blowout which is still remembered multiple years later
c) It doesn't matter
d) All of the above.

2) Player A's dad says she pitches 60 mph. How fast does she actually pitch:
a) 45mph
b) 50mph
c) 53mph
d) 55mph
e) It doesn't matter since she couldn't find the strike zone with a map

3) Player C's dad says she has 6 pitches. She really has:
a) A medium speed fastball which is sometimes a strike

4) Player A is pitching. Player B is catching. A pitched ball gets past the catcher. Is this scored:
a) A wild pitch
b) A passed ball
c) It depends on whether Player A or Player B's parent is scoring

5) A coach posts online that he just needs 'two more players'. This means
a) The team has no pitching
b) We need bodies. Anyone??? Anyone???
c) Either or both a) and b)

6) Player F hasn't been at practice all week and turns up for the game 3 minutes before first pitch. You are the coach. What does Parent F want to talk about?
a) Why Player F didn't start
b) Why Player F didn't pitch
c) Why Player F didn't play short stop
d) Why Player F didn't bat at the top of the order
e) Why Parent F doesn't believe your parent's were married when you were born.

Most excellent.

7) 5'5" girl is using a 28 inch aluminum bat and you tactfully tell the parents in private that she needs a new bat and she can borrow your DDs in the mean time. They:
a) graciously accept your advice and thank you
b) question your coaching ability
c) blame you for their daughter not playing SS
d) quit the team
e) b, c and d
