I agree with Sluggers. DD was almost exactly like your daughter early on and then built up to attack hitters. We learned to practice with the same mentality. It works for her to this day. We have always played the toughest competition so we didn't have to adjust form that standpoint. DD will always tell me I am going after EM!! And your DD must have a reliable change she can throw on any count!
Thanks for the advice. So you are saying that the aggressive mentality is something she should embrace? Maybe just tone down her stride, as Sluggers pointed out?
Her 13U team had a lot of success last year and in the fall, so her coach has started entering more open/A level. They've held their own against tough competition (not winning every game mind you, but experiencing some success).
As for a change-up, that's an issue for another thread! She has a really good change-up...I just wish her travel coach would call it more (with all pitchers, not just her).
