    DD’s former HS teammate goes 1-2 with a walk, run scored and an RBI single against the WA Huskies tonight! Couldn’t be more proud!

    Great Deal Here!

    I would have bought it, but just got a new one a few months back.

    Throw the ball

    I’m sorry, but I disagree with what the other teams are doing AND what you’re doing. Coaches should be teaching the game the way it is meant to be played. If a runner hesitates, there are two plays, throw to the bag for a pick and throw the ball back to pitcher in the circle. Practice both. You...

    Anybody else doing this?

    I’ve got so many of DD’s former teammates and friends DD’s she’s played against to keep up with, I have no idea how I’m going to get to watch them all. So many teams at all levels are broadcasting games now so I will get to see a lot of them. I’ll still be routing for Tennessee! Always loved...

    Fast Pitch Catchers Mitt

    DD used a Mizuno Prospect GXS 101 in 10U. It’s not a great glove by any means, but it was easy to break in and easy to close. Pitchers were throwing mid 40’s. Probably have to buy one a year for two years, but at $50 it’s not a bad deal. It worked well with the 11” ball.

    Are there S.B. Coaching Credentials?

    Experience and success. I don’t think you can rule out HS coaches because a lot of the good ones coach travel too. They love softball! They truly want kids to succeed. It’s not about ego, but the love of the game. I believe some of the best true coaches are coaching B ball. They are not about...

    Scenic City logistics

    It’s gotten so big and so spread out it’s crazy! Plenty of coaches, but I’m sure it’s a logistics nightmare getting to see all the kids who they want to see over three days. They could cut the team number in half, charge double and it be a better experience for teams and college coaches. I’m...

    Scenic City logistics

    No doubt! I just made this same comment on another post, haha! The split is awful coming and going on both 75 and 24. We always stayed at exit 7 or 5 and prayed we played at the Summit 😂

    My daughter is dreading high school ball approaching

    @GoRight are you near a state that plays HS ball in the fall? Seems like there are more TN girls each year passing on spring HS and playing spring travel in north GA.

    Scenic City logistics

    You could look at McGhee Tyson (TYS) out of Knoxville. It’s about 1:30 from The Summit of Softball and Ooltewah, 1:45 from Warner and 2 hrs from the other parks. I guess it would depend on where you are staying if the extra drive is worth the extra sleep in time.

    DFP DD College List

    The 75-24 split is brutal!! I always got really bent if we had to go to Camp Jordan! 😂

    When success shows up....

    Just my opinion, but there’s no need to jump to A until 14U. I would stick with the good coaching as long as your DD is improving.

    When success shows up....

    I know a lot has changed in the past 8-10 years, but DDs first team was not part of an org. We practiced in an old gym on the winter and a ROUGH rec field through the season. Coach would bring his own drag to every practice, lol!

    When success shows up....

    I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned this here, but DD has never gone to a private instructor in her life. At 10-12U played for a great coach who taught her fundamentals, catching and a lot of situational stuff. During this time I found DFP. I started asking questions. A long time member here...

    When success shows up....

    You didn’t think about that because they were “your kids” and they expected to be coached. DDs 10-12 coach would work with any of his players for free outside of practice if they wanted it. He did charge outsiders for pitching lessons though. I would bet most all of that money went back into the...
