She has been doing this since jr high ball, now going into her soph yr. All of coaches have...

    USSSA vs PGF

    I agree here. the PGF director here in Florida really stepped up the competition. I really enjoyed seeing the best 14u only tourney or a 12u only tourney compete for prizes like every player gets a ghost and/or 2nd place every gets brand new gloves. I also like the fact the PGF TD is working...

    Background checks are needed for Travelball coaches

    I would like to see some national orgs and state orgs take on this issue. Use the fall season to discuss between organization board members and coaches. Maybe even have an advocate attend a practice or game and just chat with the players away from the coaches for just 15mins.

    PGF vs. ASA

    My DD played in the 12U Nationals in Spartanburg SC. I thought this ASA tourney was ran really well. I like the rule... finish the inning + 1. An 80 min game turned into close to 2hrs.
