I think the hardest is the reality for us they CAN survive on their own. I sent mine off today quite a bit differently from the first two years. First year the truck was packed full, last year groceries mostly, this year, some pretzels, peanut butter crackers, water and bananas. Reason, he now knows where the local Wal Mart is, much easier just to use the debit card than mom running all over the place filling up the cart.

I stand corrected and apologize to Will, rz1 and pg. I haven't taken offense at the topic or the direction of the thread. I have been where this coach is.

Re: What's the average income for a minor leaguer?

StarDad ·
That's why I told you I am a "rookie" on baseball. I never played basebal before. I have very high expectation on my son. Because he is really good at current level. Hitting, pitching, fielding all around. Every coach saw him told me he is going to be a "big time player". But actually he didn't prove anything yet (as a HS freshman, he havn't played a sigle HS game yet, what do you expect?). But his talent is there for sure. I read some draft news about some player got the signing bonus from...

Re: Arguing balls and strikes

Welpe ·
Rob, was this a college game? I ask because you are quoting the NCAA rule. In Federation, a chop block occurs only when there is a low block at or below the knee of a player that is already being engaged by another blocker. I have not seen the actual foul occur too often in games that I've done. It is perfectly legal for two offensive linemen to block a defender high and low as long as it is at the same time, or if the there is a delay between blocks, the low block is the first block. Now it...

Koufax attended Brooklyn's Lafayette High School, where he was better known for basketball than for baseball. He became team captain in his senior year, and ranked second in his division in scoring, with 165 points in 10 games. Koufax attended the University of Cincinnati and was a walk-on on the freshman basketball team, a complete unknown to coach Ed Jucker, the varsity basebal coach. Sandy had heard that the baseball team would be traveling to New Orleans and Florida so he thouht he would...

Re: FIRST BAPTIST CONTINUED

Panther Dad ·
I don't think I over-moderate -- but you are welcome to open a poll on the subject. A moderator cannot win here --- as no one wants their views to be "restricted" in any way. And yet others send me private messages with opinions that suggest I intervene more often. **shrug** You should check out the chaos on the other sports message boards -- many of the posters here are glad to have our "structure". I welcome all feedback on the subject of over-moderation. The pay isn't really that good.

Mr. Basebal...what math? You'd rather "hope" that the pitcher will walk you? (and "hope" you win?) That tells me you don't trust your hitters enough to execute. Best of luck to your hitters.

We are all far from perfect. But in my experience around the game I have come across some parents that push push push. And it affects the kid in a negative way. No we do not want to sugarcoat things but sometimes their is a line we cross. What if your kid goes o-4 ks with the bases loaded twice and has 2 errors? How do you as a parent approach that? Get all over him etc etc? I have seen that and it is not pretty. A kid is exposed at that at 9 and 10 and pretty soon he gets tired of that and...

As stated, it comes down to proper mechanics [and also if a youngster's anantomy at the time will withstand the stress]. I think the main point is this: Why jeopardize a kid's health and future?? So you can win some mythical state championship that are a dime a dozen? How many HS or collge coaches give a rat's behind what your record or BA was when you were 12?? The problem with the article is that most of the guys out there coaching think they are smarter than the "real experts" and will...

Only a fool wouldn’t want to look to see if he can find improvements to what he does. That’s the main reason I’m looking at it. Another reason is, when someone discusses scoring programs, I don’t like being totally ignorant about what they’re doing. I know that, and its why I’ve been a strong supporter of it. In fact, when I 1st heard about it from one of their partners, it hadn’t yet been released. But from what I was given to read, it looked like a terrific product, and I started telling...
