I would have to say that this team is very well put together. They have an all around approach to the way they are handling this team and it shows in their practices and meetings. I'm excited to watch my kids play for this team this year and I hope we have a great year with many more to come. The team site is awesome, whoever did their website design did an amazing job.

I did report it. But thanks to Bobby for the photo from UNC! Nick has been pitching quite well and really raking it. It's especially fun when he pounds one out of the park -- since he's not the biggest guy, the outfielders always do that startled thing and then have to sprint in vain to the fence. Some may remember two years ago when VirginiaPreps.com did a feature on Nick and posted a link here. Some people questioned whether you really could tell who would become a big time guy so early on...

Wesley, As a 16 year old, you have a good base to work with. I would recommend three things immediately: 1. Lose the Knee Savers. This should allow you to get lower in your stance. Also along that line...get more flexible in your hip flexors. Take a yoga class. You have a pretty good sized frame and you will need to present a low target at times. Flexibility is very important. 2. Find a long toss or arm strengthening/stabilizing program. We use Jamie Evans' Velo-City (...

Yes, if you are interested in learning more about the program. Give them your tour schedule and request available time. If they aren't available you may want to stick around and watch a practice. It never hurts to get as much information as possible.

Re: Catching mask

Trojan skipper hits this on the head.....if you play under NFHS rules, and most all HS baseball is, there is no choice, the traditional mask and helmet are prohibited for NFHS play. it does have to be NOCSAE certified and have dual ear protection......thus the HSM is the most used mask......

Unless you trust that the hitters won't clip you, I would stick with the hockey style.

You have an All-Star MVP4000 and you're thinking of using a two-piece? Geez, that's the best mask you can get. It's pretty cool looking too if you consider Yadier, Buster, etc.

The mask helmet is there for protection and safety. Never make a decision on any safety equipment based on how cool it looks or what others are doing. Get the one that protects you the most. That would be the hockey style mask.

....But the whole "cool" and "everyone's doing it" is generational. When the hockey style mask came out everyone wanted to have one because it was "cool" and "everyone's doing it" as well. Now that the hockey style is the norm the kids coming up see the old two piece as trendy...... I'm waiting for the curved bill hat worn straight to come back in style.

My son wears both of the All Star types. We live in TX so in the school year he has to wear the hockey style. No issues with it. In the summer he prefers the two piece. He is a kid who sweats a lot and he finds the two piece to be more comfortable in the heat. He claims it stays drier as well.

My son is a 14yo 8th grader and prefers the two piece (Mizuno mask, Wilson skull cap)over his hockey style helmet (All Star 2500). He will wear the All Star if rules says it so and has no problems wearing either. He just prefers the two piece. He says the two piece is cooler (temperature not looks) and on foul tips don't ring his bell like the hockey style sometimes does. The fact that the foul tips don't rattle him is enough for me to support it. I coach his team and I have argued for him...
