Discussion: Hitting from tee vs. hitting pitched ball

thanks steve......i didn't think about my front foot...will have to check that next time i hit off my tee......you are right in the helping of my mech's...as i do move the tee up/down/side to side...and also back and forth......i do find when i hit in the school's batting tunnel i hit more line drives and less deep ones when playing afterwards......when i practice on their ball field i can get my long ball dialed in better......is a big pain to not have a bp partner tho.......where's big george(funk) when i need him....LOL...

staff...why do we need to do 3 days for 6 teams....that is very poor planning on anyone's part.....also when they get a park make sure we can use it for the day and not have to get off it at 4 pm so the park can run their leagues....we had 44 teams total for all ages...playing from thurs - sun.......and they couldn't do everyone in 2 days for age div......

dancer...i think we have poisoned the well already....also the fake hr hitters would prolly just leave as they wouldn't be able to use their super bats to make themselves feel like the BMOC....the 52 ball has stopped some of the wanna be's..but we are still losing players as those wanna be's are crying they can't hit their mishit hr's..so are just leaving...around here anyways.....

Discussion: Hitting from tee vs. hitting pitched ball

i hit close to the same off a tee for distance...my prol is if i do to much tee work my timing seems to get off a little and most times i'm out front on a pitched ball,it takes 10+ pitches for bp to get back my timing...is there something that can be done with my tee work to help that.......

slow pitch has been declining for the last 10 years basically...once the plastic bats came out people have been dropping...most say they quit playing b/c it is to dangerous..and the fake hr's with these supercharged bats.....i know my local leagues have been loosing teams in all leagues.....we used to fill the fields (5 of them)every nite..now we get 3-5 fields being used mostly and sometimes only 2-3 games when we used to play 4 games per field a nite.....

well again another just throw the tourney ...get our money..type.....fields terrible..balls seem like they were stored in high heat as balls out of the box were not going anywhere....strike mat again not offical size...and the 60 AAA's had to pay for extra day of motel/hotel b/c TD couldn't figure out how to get 6 teams to do 2 days like all the other div......but hey what do i know.......

Discussion: Camping Info Wanted

look for something under 35' for ease of use and gas mileage...class A.....also if your gonna have many people inside..get one with slide outs....make sure your clean water tank has some decent size...min 50 gallons for your cleaning up and cooking.....i drove one for years till gas got to high to deal with.....they all are basically the same per say...just do your inspections of them closely looking for roof leaks and such........

i also tie my shoes with my heel as far back as possible(and as tight as i can take) to prevent sliding back and forth in the shoe.....doesn't take much for the toes to hurt and this seems to help some....haven't found a shoe yet that will prevent this tho for me......

mmm...i thought they had changed that rule where you could wear any glove/mitt any where on the field....so to me it would be moot as for the play.....good catch and batter out..with no swapping out the glove/mitt.....
