    RIP Coach Aday

    His name is Robert Paulson.

    Pretty common (and sleazy) way for mid-level, possibly new, programs to recruit players. They are not only chasing a trophy, they may be trying to find the "cubic zirconia in the rough" players that might not otherwise try out on a travel team.

    Blocking using one arm/hand

    87.6% of all statistics are made up on the spot. :-) That being said, throughout the careers of each of my catchers, chest, stomach, and forearm bruises were about equally spread at various levels of play. Early on, inexperienced pitchers were all over the place which translated to blocking...

    Blocking using one arm/hand

    She will eventually get to the point where she will not be able to cover the 5 hole with 1 arm. I would personally start doing drills now teaching a proper 2 arm approach. Bouncing tennis balls is a great drill for young catchers to learn the process without getting sore arms. But she needs...

    How is travel for college away games handled?

    My daughter played ball for a small Christian college in the NAIA. All of her trips were school funded including travel, lodging and food. I can't speak for the larger schools, but she (who was a little thing) still had to supplement with additional food to stay in game shape. I think you...

    Black Friday deals 2021?

    Hopefully this isn't too far off topic. But we are going to give away a new GoPro Hero 10 for Black Friday. Probably some other stuff too. No knives, but other stuff. :)

    Team Manager - Scoring/Streaming

    I believe carrier service at record time to be the biggest cause of that issue. It's why we recommend streaming and recording (with 2 different devices) at the same time. Streaming is handy and integrates the scoring systems. But recording to local media (internal memory) will always yield...

    Black Dot Right Side???

    Clicking the black dot works too.

    Black Dot Right Side???

    "Whoa, Black Dot Bam-ba-lam" It will be stuck in your head for days. You're welcome. :-)

    We are in the Midwest. That means snow ball on Friday...catchers over heating on Sunday.
