    New Slapper: Still left and Right. What's the plan in the box?

The great thing about being able to do both is when one isn't working you have...

    Coach Signaling We Should Resign?

    Coach Signaling We Should Resign?

    I would see after this weekend if she doesn't play have a talk with the coaches, but have the conversation along the lines of what she needs to improve on. Then work on those things.

    Softball Organizations - USSSA, PGF, etc...

    I think it just depends on area, PGF is currently the gold standard, the new Alliance league will give them a run for there money, but competition is a good thing. Yes, top gun did. With the two state directors involved with the alliance, PGF needed the area covered. PGF is the current gold...

    Anyone else headed to Clearwater this weekend?

    We were able to sub for a team for Clearwater after regular team pulled out, wish daughter played for a team in the past that went on a regular. I agree with the above statement for the Panthers pitcher she was dealing.

    IDT or Sparkler (Colorado)

    Colorado I feel is an experience every softball player should partake in at least once. I do agree if you aren't playing in IDT or the power pools won't be much "showcasing".
