Discussion: Calling all pitchers.

Good info from everyone. Thank you. If I had 30/40+ plus years of pitching experience this topic would not have been submitted. A field is 1/4 mile away. Time to chip away at those million pitches and use my regulation sized towel plate for pitching more so than BP.

Muscle memory keeps telling me I have enough velosity, but I'm usually short. Until I get this figured out, it's OF & IF for me.

Discussion: Calling all pitchers.

Whenever I do some pitching practice I am not consistent in getting my follow through to go straight. As a right handed thrower, the arm goes off to the left mostly. I have better success releasing with the palm facing down (back spin) but want to also throw palm up and side spins. Any suggestions on mechanics, feet, body position, wrist wraps, etc.? Thank you.

Discussion: Throwing Help

Another exercise is to actually warm up before you play. Throwing to a teammate 20' away for about 15-20 tosses is not going to improve distance. Show up early, grab a bucket of balls, an empty bucket (don't have to bend over as far), and throw the ball so it rolls up against a fence or back stop. Start easy and as you loosen up, move backwards and throw a little harder. Toss at least 50 times. If you have your own softballs, do extra throwing between games. Baseball pitchers from HS to the pros long toss between starts to stretch their arms/shoulders and maintain/improve velocity. If your one who hits off a T between games, again show up early to hit off a T and don't go out and pick up the balls. Toss them back towards the infield (if you hit 'em deep), then throw them towards home plate.

After a minor tricep injury, the sports injury folks gave me six band exercises to do. They strengthened the tricep and my velocity/distance increased. I still do them. Currently, the only weights I do are wrist curls. Either search on line, or speak with a local sports injury DR.

Discussion: A few more scores from Reno and oddity

Since there is still no individual game scores from Spring Vegas, one might expect Reno game results before Vegas Worlds in September.

You may also want to go on the Huntsman site and enter your info in the player looking for a team link if you haven't already done so.

Discussion: 2nd base RUN BY LINE

This rule, as far as I know, is not a rule of any national SB organizations. It is used in some rec leagues. Third base is also a run through base.

Discussion: Best Batting Glove for Pratice

Oroblec: I bought the three pack of "FG" work gloves for under $12. Three different colors. At the time they were on sale along those shelves they have set up with special priced items. As rh25 mentioned, Mechanix can also be found for a reasonable cost.

Discussion: Tourney updates

With tomorrow being one month since the Spring Vegas tournament commenced and the 60,65,& 70 Brickyard results (which started a week or so later) are on line, maybe we're getting close to the Vegas individual game results.

Discussion: Lost Nokona Glove

It might be awhile before all the game results are posted, but if you call Sacramento, they might contact the BLD director since there is another age group starting today and they are still on duty. The director will know what teams played the next game on that field. After that game the local co-ed league started arriving. Good luck

Topic: Tournaments
Discussion: why?

When some of us were curious why it was taking so long to get the Phoenix results last year, a post from SSUSA mentioned they had the Feb. TOC to get scheduled. They seem not to have the staff numbers to cover all the tournaments, especially when they run close to each other. The budget they have to work with probably isn't large enough to add more paid staff. Some of these other "organizations" might not have many tournaments and the ones they do have might have weeks between them. The Huntsman Games has many volunteers to get the scores to one lady who enters the results that are posted via a company who they contract with each year. Don't know if SSUSA would allow interns to help at their HQ.

Discussion: Mendoza Line

This discussion is a spin off of the other one about MVP. For me, if a player hits below 700, but pinch runs 4/5 times a game; scores runs no one else would get; prevents double plays on balls to the IF; cuts off balls in the gaps (if an OF); gets to grounders through the IF quickly; gets to grounders as an IF that others are not quick enough to or can't bend over; etc., then they are an asset to the team and should be considered for a patch or team MVP as well.
