  • 7-28-17 Ummm, all I’m going to say about this is that we lost 18 to 1 but the girls had a lot of fun. I know you wouldn’t believe it by the score but they did. I can’t remember if Tess pitched or not – it’s all a blur. For the second game, we lost […]

  • 7-27-17 We lost against the Adrenaline Athletics 13 to 6 and Tess was pitching and had to be relieved at some point. She was just walking people left and right. During this game when she was up to bat, the coach came up to her and whispered something in her ear. Tess already had a […]

  • 7-26-17 We lost game 2 against the So Cal Dirtdogs 10 to 8. It was a really good game and we were coming back from behind but time ran out and that was that. Tess was brought in to pitch a bit and pitched hard and really good. I was so proud of her. We […]

  • 7-25-17 We played against the So Cal Storm and we lost by 3 points. That wasn’t too bad of a loss but we should have won the game except we made some costly mistakes. Tess did not pitch this game.

  • 7-24-17 The 14U team was going to be participating in the opening ceremonies for nationals but the 18U team was not. Instead, the 18U would have their regularly scheduled batting practice that night but I told the 18U coach that Tess was scheduled to go to the ceremonies instead. Even though Tess complained about the […]

UCLA weekend

  • 7-22-17 This weekend was a “real” friendly before nationals but Tess was going to be gone that weekend. She had an opportunity to spend a free weekend at UCLA (not doing sports) and so we jumped on the chance. This was to teach the kids about the school, help them with what they will need […]

14U batting

  • 7-201-17 I’m so done with this batting practice. It’s the same ol’ basic, boring batting practice as every other time and the girls learn nothing. The coaches should come and check out the batting practice on Mondays so they can learn a thing or to. I’m making an executive decision to make this the very […]

18U batting

  • 7-17-17 Tess enjoyed this batting practice as well. It was funny because she was paired with a friend we’ve known for many years and when they were up to bat off the machine, they had no problem doing so. When an older softball player went up to bat off the machine, she couldn’t do it […]

  • 7-16-17 This “friendly” was a scam. It touted itself by being a “friendly” that would give teams a run for their money before nationals but instead, there was only one decent team and the rest seemed as though they had never had their first rec ball practice. Each one of our 3 pitchers got to […]

  • 7-15-17 Since we still had time off from the 18U team, Tess was able to go to this extra hitting lesson. It was actually a good practice and almost ALL of the girls showed up this time. Hallelujah!!

  • 6-8-17 Only 6 girls showed up to batting practice tonight. Even the coach wasn’t there. We had to wait outside for about 15 minutes without any balls, net or equipment. Luckily, a batting instructor showed up and opened the doors. Tess said it was a dud and waste of time. I told her we should’ve […]

  • 6-7-17 Tess’ pitching coach suggested we purchase a Spin Right Spinner so…..we did. This contraption is supposed to help pitchers with their spinning rotation. There is a 29 minute video that is associated with this that Tess just didn’t have time to watch before her lesson but what can you do. She did watch the […]

  • 6-6-17 Tonight Tess practiced with her future team on the field. These practices are sooooo much better than her 14U team. While the coaches on the 14U team are not bad, this coach is sooooo good that Tess gets much more out of these practices. I parked for a bit and watched Tess and her […]

  • 6-5-17 Tess was paired with a fairly new girl, like her, tonight for the stations and she told me that she was so nice. She was an older girl who would be a senior next year and would be the catcher that would catch for her when Tess was pitching. This pairing was much better […]

Camping

  • 6-2-17 Tess and her Girl Scout troop were going camping for the weekend and as the leader, that meant I was going camping too. We had a “friendly” scheduled with both teams but would have to play with her current team as her pitching coach suggested. Trying to figure out the logic in how I […]

  • 6-17-17 This was going to be our first closest softball “friendly” ever. I had talked to my long-time friend and she said she was going to come to this game but we kept it a surprise from Tess. We had to wake up at 5:00 in the morning though because we had to be at […]

  • 6-14-17 I forgot to bring the spinner to practice tonight. I had taken it out of my car because it stinks but I’ll just have to keep it near the back of my car from now on so I don’t forget it again. The catcher for today was late so even though I was dressed […]

  • 6-12-17 Tonight was another batting practice with Tess’ future team. I brought my chair out back to sit and watch the girls like we parents do when the 14U team is practicing but no one does it with the high school team so I was all alone and bored. Sometimes, I go inside and watch […]

  • 6-10-17 We had softball practice today from 8 to 10. Tes and I were soooooooo tired because we were up the night before until 2:00 a.m. because we took her brother Ike to an amusement park that he won tickets too and that was only from 9 p.m. until 1 a.m. When the alarm went […]

  • 4-30-17 It turns out Tess is coming down with something so she didn’t go to church or to her pitching coach’s practice. I am hopeful she’ll feel better enough to go ‘throw the ball around’ tomorrow because I really want to get her on the mound. I want to teach her how to “own” it. […]

  • 4-29-17 Since our Sunday “friendly” was canceled, our coach got us a double-header for Saturday night. It looked like most of the girls were going to be able to be there but I was kind of bummed because we had plans to watch the last season game of the rec ball games that evening but […]

  • 4-28-17 Tess wanted to go out Friday night, Friday night……a night we NEVER go out on, and practice pitching. Her dad was going to catch for her and since he hadn’t caught for her in about 2 years, I told her to exercise extreme patience as he got used to it again. After all, the […]

  • 4-26-17 Tess and I was at the cage before her pitching coach so she warmed up as usual. Now her warm-up pitches were cut from 7 to 5 and so we moved quickly to her middle warm-up and then her windmill warm-up. She even decided to do some squats and pitch before she got on […]

  • 4-24-17 I’ve already written that sometimes I really hate catching for Tess and this was one of those nights. She wanted to argue about me not catching her balls but mind you they were going far right or far left. Ummm, excuse me but I’m on a bucket that’s not on level ground so if […]

  • 4-23-17 We had to get up at 5:00 in the morning to arrive at the field by 6:45. It was a 35 minute drive from our house to the field but there was no traffic and we found our way just fine. The girls warmed up and were ready to play their first game which […]

Old cleats

  • 4-22-17 Saturday morning practice. We made it on time but did not go out beforehand to practice pitching on our own. I had hidden Tess’ standard cleats so that only her metal cleats were in the garage and I whispered to Ike that she was going to start screaming about her shoes in 3….. 2…….. […]
