    Naming a Pet (with a catcher theme)

    Maybe to complete the name… “two balls and one strike”… [emoji3526]. I think this is becoming too suggestive…[emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    DD1 just verballed

    That’s awesome. Simmons University head coach also coaches 16U for the travel team organization that my DD plays for. My DD played for one of the 18U teams 2 years ago, and had been playing for the 18plus team since last year. Congratulations to your DD. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    17yo Maddie

    That was my daughter’s experience (well, similar). She realized at some point that D1 wasn’t going to be a good fit, and focused on finding a good D3 college. She was fortunate to find a good fit with Middlebury College in Vermont, where she started about a week ago. They had their first...

    Recruiting manager?

    We ended up opening our DD a free profile in NCSA for a few years. Then when things got serious, we paid about $1000 for a basic service. Is a one time fee. If I were to do this again, I would have saved the money and keep the free profile. With this basic profile you get additional video...

    There is a story that explains why DeAngelo was the way he was, and it was rooted in his love for his sister Shemiah. When Shemiah was diagnosed with Lupus, and was told she could not play anymore and she was fighting and made her way back to playing, his brother swore that he would not miss a...

    Best Chair for Parents/Fans???

    Renetto (renetto.com) This this the best chair we have had, after trying many. Like it so much that we have 3, one for my wife and I, and an additional one for our daughter when she is on breaks. The best feature is the sun cover, very flexible, you can angle the front to preference.... it...

    DD found her dream school and went for it: SUCCESS STORY!

    My DD got offered a spot in a NESCAC DIII school, but it was contingent upon acceptance to the school. The commitment was just a commitment from my DD to apply through the early decision process. I’m sure that they put a little weight on sports recruiting, but for the most part, she needs to...

    DD found her dream school and went for it: SUCCESS STORY!

    That’s what is all about. If she is happy, there is not much else you can ask for, right? Congratulations! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Team is a vehicle for coach's daughter, not much more.

    The first U12 team our DD played for was coached by a college player... not a great experience due to lack of maturity with that coach. When she moved to U14, she played with a Daddy’s coach. She ended up playing a lot because he could not afford to sit her down (best catcher in the team, and...

    Long 2021 Recruiting Rollercoaster Ride Pays Off FINALLY!

    As a follow up to this post, I met with the college financial services. They reiterated that they are a need-based scholarship only school. They do not discount tuition or boarding nor any fees for that matter. They don’t offer merit or any other type of scholarship. For their decision, they...

    Long 2021 Recruiting Rollercoaster Ride Pays Off FINALLY!

    I completely understand you. I also have a 529 that would cover a bit over 1 year, and I started when my DD entered kinder. I asked for a tuition discount, but was not successful. They (college student financial services) offered to talk to us, so I’m coordinating that meeting now. Not sure...

    Long 2021 Recruiting Rollercoaster Ride Pays Off FINALLY!

    Same here, I’m sorry to say. Unless she qualifies for need-based scholarship, you’ll have to swing the full tuition + boarding. The only thing they offered us was the ability to take a $5,000 loan [emoji15]. For us, is not impossible to fund it, but I would not have mind a little help. My DD...
