You'll do great, no doubt. But even better a quality guy giving back to the sport when your DD isn't involved. That only helps the sport and other girls.

In advance... Thank you!

So, you guys please wish me just a little luck, HC told me I’ll be coaching 3B and calling some pitches while she’s talking to college coaches! This weekend I’ll probably be flying by the seat of my pants! Should be fun, and a little interesting!

I thought I was done with this craziness!
Always remember that while this is a showcase for the girls, there are college coaches watching you as well for a potential coaching gig. You need to set the tone early and show everyone you’re not here to make friends but to help provide W’s. Make sure the first pitch you call is high and inside to make them think twice about getting in the box against your pitcher (well, only if she can paint the outside corner after). If that strategy doesnt work, just ask yourself, “what would Domingo Ayala would do right here” and all will be well.

Good luck out there .

Yeah, I don’t thank so, but thanks!

Went 1-1 today, my first game back was a boring, uneventful 3-2 loss. Second game, much better, and against a really good SC Elite team. We had some great hits, but more importantly we had some great timely hits with girls in scoring position!

At any given time in both games, I had anywhere from 2 to 6 college coaches standing over my shoulder, had several great conversations with them! Three girls on this team aren’t committed, I’m sure I looked and sounded like a used car salesmen pushing these three girls on these coaches!

I had a great time today! My wife said her and Anna got all the pickets on the deck stained today!! 👍 Win win!

I know we cut up, have fun, and I love picking on you ”softball glove” guys! But I have my first assistant coaching gig since July 2019 this coming weekend. I did coach a MS boys baseball team in February/March this year, we got two games in before it was cut off because of the plague!

I’ve had two practices with this 18U team, we haven’t even gone over the call cards yet! :oops: This particular showcase is like the Walterboro, SC format. Every team gets two college coaches per team, so four coaches on the field at all times. Heck I don’t know half of these girls names!

But, hotel reserved and looking very forward to it! Funny thing, Anna just got home from college, she’s on break from tomorrow through Tuesday, this will be my first softball hotel stay ever without her! I just asked her if she wanted to go with me........blank stare, and a flat out NO........I’m sleeping in! :mad:
