    Vision problems - Lack of Convergence

    When I originally came across this thread last year, I was curious if my DD suffered from this. After clicking on one of the links above, it directed me to an optometrist near me that tested for it. After meeting with her, she recommended trying contacts before doing therapy. It took a few tries...

    Sports glasses

    Consider contacts. Our experience: DD now 12 started wearing glasses at 4. At the beginning of 10U her prescription changed requiring her to wear bifocals. That’s when the problems started. Through 2 years of 10U while her pitching was never affected, her batting average steadily declined, she...

    Vision problems - Lack of Convergence

    @2sDad how can you tell if someone has convergence issues? After reading the info in the link you shared, I’m left wondering if this may be affecting my DD. She wears glasses but often complains about headaches when required to read for an extended period of time. She has started having some...

    New IR drill

    My DD (11) sees a Tincher instructor. She’s done this drill at the last couple of lessons, but her instructor uses it to make her feel where her hips need to be at release. She doesn’t use it for whip, just simply for posture. While she does start with her legs switched she is instructed to...

    Batting the best 9 in pool play

    I should’ve actually put “best 9” in quotes because while one player didn’t bat at all on Saturday the other non batting position was split between 3 players in separate games. 2 of the three hitters have higher AVG and OBP than the coaches kid. One of which actually is 2nd on the team in...

    Batting the best 9 in pool play

    DD is on a first year 12U team registered B that rosters 11. We’ve been a part of this team since 8U. This past weekend played in a 12U Open tournament which the coach decides they are going to bat the best 9 for pool play. The reason given for this was that it’s a single elimination bracket...

    Illegal pitch or not?

    marriard thanks for the response. I feel like I asked a stupid question now. I was under the impression USSSA used the “start” back version. I guess I’m the one that should be fired for not knowing.[emoji16]hopefully I’ll get to retain my volunteers salary[emoji2] Sent from my iPhone using...

    Illegal pitch or not?

    Playing in a 10U open USSSA tournament last night, and the pitcher was doing what appeared to be a “step back”. As coaches we were talking about it during her warm ups, and as the the game started the base ump called time and told her coach she was pitching illegally. The coach was emphatic that...

    “Manager” leaving now what?

    Thanks to everyone who responded. Just to clear some things up: This guy wasn’t the organization manager only our team manager. However he and the other coaches of the teams that folded had to help manage the organization after the original founder of the org had to move out of state for work...

    “Manager” leaving now what?

    I’m an AC of a 2nd year 10U comp team. When my DD joined this team 2 years ago it was part of an organization that had 6 or 7 teams playing under their name. Now there’s just us. The “manager” of our team informed the coaching staff after the spring/summer of 19 that he’d be stepping away from...

    Are we on the right track?

    Thanks sluggers for the thoughts on her IR and FSR that particular day we were really working hard on the front side. She works really hard and says she wants to be "famous" at softball. As far as the head lean I let her read the post and she said she'd try not leaning. I didn't notice her doing...

    Are we on the right track?

    So My 9yo daughter has been pitching for a couple years now. After getting turned on to this site around a year ago I quickly learned that I wanted my daughter to learn to pitch correctly (aka IR). So with the help of all the great threads on here we’ve been working on it at home. I thought I’d...
