[quote]Oh, I'm sure everyone was pumped. I really was just playing devil's advocate there. That team definitely seems to live by their motto of "power of 1."

re: Senior moment- but she remembered - tigersbb
[quote]By that same token, do you think the team also noticed that she didn't give the other remaining senior, Kailey McCasland, any playing time in her last game at home? I mean, if one is a positive, then the other has to be a negative...right? Granted Supak did have a larger role on the team in t...

Senior moment- but she remembered - tigersbb
There was a special moment in yesterday's Super Regional softball game. In the seventh inning Coach Torina sent senior Dylan Supak up to pinch hit an opportunity for one last at bat in her final home game. Just like the magic that always seemed to flow from Skip Bertman's decisions, this one also h...

[quote]Me thinks you got yo arse whooped and don't say running bases isn't fundamentals [/quote] I don't think so, sentiment was firmly in agreement with my views. Wanted to hear from others who coach same level. Yes, base running is fundamental. However, what goes on in this league at that...

re: Kid softball dilemma - tigersbb
Great responses and interesting to see these issues seem to be universally prevalent. The " prepare them for All Stars" mentality alters perspective. The 90% of players who do not make an All star team would develop their skills and become better players by playing station to station baseball an...

re: Kid softball dilemma - tigersbb
Interesting you mentioned the All star influence. In a recent round table text discussion with my fellow coaches someone raised the issue that play should only stop when the ball is in possession of the coach pitcher inside the circle. The umpires in our league are making judgment as to when the bal...
