Leah's favorite memory is doing quick throws with @nicoletahmoosh before every home game to get hyped up before the game. 💪
How to be an elite fielder 101🙌🔥 when I was younger I specifically remember one of my coaches telling our team to play the ball and don’t let it play you and it always stuck with me. You have to be on the attack because the moment you get caught flat footed is when you’re going to make an error. GO FOLLOW @rogue_baseball1 and JOIN THE BRAND!!!
Focusing on knob first while keeping barrel back and not dropping to create fast bat whip through the zone! Stop at hand/knob drive (before contact point!), then bring just the hands back up to starting position, and whip the knob and barrel through the zone to extension! Over emphasize the knob to the ball and top hand really snapping the barrel through - focus on forearm strength! (Extra tip...the ball has to stay on the tee for you to hit it 😉)

If someone told you to sprint up a hill as fast as you could, how would you do it?
Would you get forward into your hips like a sprinter or would you push up, stand upright and run with high knees?
The answer is pretty obvious, and we want to pitch the same way. Springy like a sprinter, ready to be explosive off the rubber
Adding resistance bands for an extra challenge 💪🏻

It is ok to be sad that your season is currently on hold indefinitely, or canceled completely. To miss being out on that field with your friends and your teammates that have become your softball family. You worked hard in the fall and winter, and you were ready to show off that hard work on the field; but now you are home looking at your trophy’s and medals and re watching videos reminiscing of the good times you had on the dirt.
While I am not able to make the world better right now, and let you get back on the field; I can offer some encouragement. Right now, you have the power to make the most out of this unfortunate situation. You can continue to work hard on these days off, your softball journey isn’t over. You can spend time with your family and enjoy the slow pace of the days. Read, draw, sing, and dance, play board games and go for a bike ride.
When this ends, and it will; we will return to the fields and appreciate all of the things we often took for granted. The coaches, volunteers, umpires, siblings, parents, the girls cheering from the dugout, the dirt in the back seat, and sunflower seeds in the dryer. We will appreciate all of the little things, and the big things too.
Still, it is ok to be sad. For now, stay safe.. we will be on the dirt again soon.
Damn! The closest to that I've seen was a fastpitch softball pitcher we played against who had an eephus pitch she learned to throw in her delivery. He problem was she had a tell we picked up in the second tourney we played against her so we teed off on the pitch after that.

What happens when you over throw and don’t know how to work on scapula control? 😞Atrophy. Over throwing is hard to dial down when you're in season and practicing. Now, when we're in this unexpected off season, is the time to work on it.
