    Not sure which bat to go with

    My college is looking into getting us our equipment as players. I've already decided on regular equipment like mitts (looking into a new one for playing third), sliding shorts, catcher gear, cleats, and batting armor. Now I need to decide on a new axe. I'm torn between getting a Mizuno F21...

    I saw this in my Facebook feed.

    I was going through my Facebook feed, and a friend shared an article she saw about things girls remembered from playing basketball. I read the article and at the end of it, I saw one about softball. I read it and thought I'd share it. article

    Brag on my little sister

    I have to brag on my little sister. I slipped home to see my little sister play, yesterday. She had such a stellar game. 7 Inning complete game, No runs allowed, 11 strikeouts, and 2 walks pitching, and she really helped herself out at the plate going 2 for 2 with a double, a single with 3...

    First college OTF homerun in walk-off fashion.

    I hit my first college home run today a walk-off homer. I got a mistake pitch to crush with us down 6-4 and runners on second and third with one out. I got a 2-2 change-up that was hung to drive over the left-center wall to give us a 7-6 win. My teammates were pretty stoked. 😁

    What to do after testing positive for COVID-19

    Today was supposed to be the big day. Today was supposed to be the day I started my first college softball game...albeit not at my natural position (catcher) but was supposed to play one of my secondary positions (third). It started Tuesday afternoon after practice. We went to the athletic...

    Using eyeblack versus sunglasses under catcher's mask

    I had a meeting with our coach. She was saying about how catchers should use eyeblack under the catcher's mask versus the practice of wearing sunglasses under your mask. I personally like wearing sunglasses under my mask and I think it's a little more practical especially since I wear contact...

    Needing a new, custom catchers mitt. Thinking about getting a custom Marucci.

    I just got out of practice from between lunch and heading to my next class at 4:00. I was using my custom Vinci catcher's mitt during catching and blocking drills today and was told by one of the coaches that I "need another glove. Preferably either regular tan leather or if I can get it, team...

    Helping younger sister return to pitching post-broken leg/surgery.

    My now 17-year-old sister tried out for our 18u softball team after our first two pitchers had significant injuries in the fall (pitcher 1 had significant internal injuries after a car accident and pitcher 2 blew out her ACL while at a cross-country meet halfway through her second run of the...

    2019 Ghost warranty question

    I went out taking some BP at home because we own an older used pitching machine and since my class got out of school early today since we have our final day ever of high school tomorrow. I was using my ghost and was taking some decent hacks with it. After about half an hour into practice, I took...

    What were your impressions of the 2019 DeMarini Carbon Candy composite bat?

    I had an old Easton bat that I had been using as a BP bat and sometimes game bat crack on me from using it (not my 2019 Ghost. I would have been heartbroken if that happened to my Ghost, lol.) So I am looking to replace it. A friend's sister (plays 16U) has a DeMarini Carbon Candy bat in 34/24...

    How does the branding of your gear work at a D3 school?

    I'm going to be starting my freshman year at a D3 school in PA in August. I've already done everything I need to on my end expressing interest in playing softball for the college. But I'm wondering what I should do with my already existing gear. I have Evoshield shields, a facemask for in case...

    My heart goes out to a fallen player in another county.

    I would have posted this earlier, but I was away from home and didn't have my laptop PC with me to post from our hotel room. I was away in Lancaster County, PA shopping with my mom and 16 y/o sister who's still recovering from her broken leg. We were watching the news and I saw a segment they...

    Dealing with a plate discipline issue

    I'm not sure if this is the right board for this post. If it's not, I'll direct this to one of the hitting boards. I'm dealing with a plate discipline issue. We've had injuries all across our team...especially our infield and pitchers. My sister's broken leg in March being the most serious...

    Where'd the time go. It's hard to believe my Senior season is here!

    It's hard to believe its almost high school softball season in PA. I mean, it seems like just a couple of weeks ago, we were starting the school year. We'd be having cheer practice while the football team practices and learns how to work as a unit. Fall softball was in full swing. My sister was...

    Had a great powderpuff football game Saturday night & sis's good soccer game!

    I have to brag on my sister's soccer team in a losing effort in districts. Our school's soccer team played in the district finals Friday night since our school's football team is done playing (they didn't make districts since they went 4-6). So I went to her soccer game. Our school played well...

    Prayer requestsS

    Please pray for a teammate of mine. There is a girl on our travel team that had been having a lot of pain in her knee for about the last month or so of the season. She told the doctor about it and they did a MRI and they found a lump in her knee. She went in for surgery in August and got the...

    Little Sister brag and some really good news for family

    I was originally going to post this last night but I was pretty tired from doing cheerleading at the football game and celebrating some really good news for the family. I have to brag on my little sister. She tried out for the school's varsity soccer team, which she only played some as a little...
