    Hello. Long time listener... first time caller. My daughter is a 12u pitcher and we have recently started having issues with the back (drive leg) knee/hip internally rotating and going behind the plant leg knee. I don't know if it is a by product of her trying to get her hips out of the...

    Pain from pitching

    My daughter is 15, she plays travel ball and I coach. Recently she has been experiencing pain in between her shoulder blades closer to the right side just above it. It feels like a knot of muscle. Has anyone heard of this or experienced it? I’m certain is something she’s doing mechanically

    Dad in training, Daughter learning to pitch,

    I’m looking for feedback about pitching. My DD started pitching in April and is currently pitching 12u C level. There has been a bit of controversy about what finish is best, due to different opinions. I guess along this path we need to keep an open mind, but I also would like to start out...

    JV Softball - Having a great time

    Our County has a weird rule that allows 8th graders in Middle School to try out for and play JV softball with the local High School. I think they do it because there usually isn’t enough talent in 9-12 to field a pair of teams. What this means in reality is that the JV team becomes a fun taste...

    People always post negative experiences with coaches, let me post a positive.

    This weekend at a tournament in Brandon Mississippi my daughter’s coaches showed me how coaching should be done. Let me set the stage so it will all make sense. We are a 10u Team from Monroe La, we started last year in 8u and struggled quite a bit. Lost a few kids to trophy hunters and teams...

    rev fire details

    I've been kicking around the idea of buying a rev fire. I need to know some details of it before hand. First, does it require a full distance pitch (43')? Secondly, can it be thrown into a net and not a mitt? Thanks, James

    Am I too old to start?

    I'm 14 and I play first base, third base, and in very very very very desperate measures, catcher. And recently I have been wondering about starting to pitch. Is it too late?

    Parents calling out pitches.

    We played a tournament this weekend and had a bunch if parents from the other team sitting behind the backstop and telling the batters where our catcher was set up and calling out pitches when they could get them right. We did get a few by setting up outside and throwing down the middle, but...

    Swollen hand when pitching

    I've been pitching for about 2 and a half years now, and when I first began training, I noticed that occasionally my hand would swell to be about twice (or more) than the size it should be. I've hit speeds of about 57, but my consistent speed is around 55. I've asked every coach and pitching...

    awesome pitcher...or was she?

    ASA tournament today, we saw one of the best pitchers we've ever seen. Kid had crazy movement, pinpoint accuracy, and was throwing 61 mph on average. In the middle of the game following the thrashing they put on us (10-2), someone says "man that rubber seems really close", after a time out to...
