    When to begin hitting instruction?

    I would say when you realize buying a $400 bat didn’t help.

    Is this acceptable?

    Yes. Once you have type 1 (at this point) you have to take insulin forever. Diet controls how much insulin you need, but will never eliminate it. With Type 1 your body stops making insulin, with type 2 your body makes it, but doesn’t use it properly.

    Is this acceptable?

    You are correct. Type 1 diabetes (juvenile) is caused by immune response to a virus. Here are pics of my dd the year she was diagnosed. Anyone who can show me where the cookies caused the disease is welcome to try.

    Unraveling Pitching Frustrations

    Maturing as a pitcher (and a hitter) is to Take one pitch at a time. That good play or bad play that just happened has nothing to do with the pitch you are about to throw. That bad (or great) pitch or call or play has to be immediately forgotten and the only thing that matters is this pitch...

    How do you handle another parent trashing your DD?

    Same guy will be bitching next year because his dd is being over used. The old joke about 1 pitcher being too few and 2 being too many.

    Caught stealing %--12U

    Caught stealing stats are hard to compare. On many GC teams a stolen base is often a Wild Pitch or passed ball. Not an actual SB. Those will suppress the actual cs numbers

    Look back v. leaving early

    Kirk Gibson one said that as a manager it was his job to know the rules as well as the ump. He would study sections of the rule book during the season to refresh his memory. His thought was as the manager he might have an opportunity to win a game by his knowledge of the rules and it was his...

    Rules Catchers Should Know

    I always taught it’s not foul until the ump says it’s foul. Play on until then.

    Scholarship question

    Odd perspective. No one ever says Alabama isn’t a good enough football state since their coach and many of their players are not from Alabama.

    Diffrent pitches 12u pitchers should know

    How many pitches does a 12u pitcher need? However many it takes to get outs. That’s the answer at all ages. And at the highest level you only need 3 really good pitches that you can spot. If that means learning 3 pitches or maybe she needs to learn 5 but only 3 that she likes enough to master...

    WHIP Calculations

    It’s not a hit or a walk, it doesn’t affect whip. WHIP is literally Walks and Hits per Inning Pitched. Nothing else is calculates into that number. dropped 3rd is still counted as a strike out for the pitchers stats.

    WHIP Calculations

    Those aren’t hits. How many strike outs a game is she averaging? My idea of a perfect inning is 3 pitches all resulting in weak ground balls. Your dd can pitch a whole lot more innings that way, then if she needs 20 pitches an inning to get more strikeouts.

    Dropped third strike help

    I am going to assume that there were already 2 outs when this happened. The answer depends on what happens after the ball was thrown. Was the batter/runner out at first? Then no run. Same as any other force out for the third out of an inning.

    WHIP Calculations

    A ball put into play isn’t a hit, unless it’s a hit. So outs and errors do not count against whip and they dont count as a positive towards batting average.

    single or double

    10u it’s a double. That throw is the norm. 12u and up it’s a single and the base on the throw.

    Bunter out while in the box

    The white lines are a determining factor

    No Hitter!

    Congrats. If it’s in the local newspaper. Share that article on Facebook. Then in 6 years Facebook memories will pop up and you can be reminded of how great it felt.

    designating infield and outfield positions

    If you want to develop players faster and also give them a chance to learn both infield and outfield. Split them up by which side of the field you play them on. Keep your 1st basemen and second in Rf, 3rd and ss in left. Center is for whoever you want. This keep ball spin and flight similar so...

    Distracted ump (1st base coach)..what's the call?

    Did she say that’s why we sent her? If the ump hasn’t signaled obstruction, why would you assume he would call it later? What they need is to pay for a 2 man crew instead of assuming 1 ump is enough.
