Well that can’t happen unless you signed up for that on the front in or along the way with some sort of consideration. Even with TX and it’s silly carry over laws that can’t happen. I’d tell them to eat Shit.
Rather than complain about it, I just haven’t been on here. It’s been so inactive that I don’t even think to get on. It has been that way since before the switch over. I signed in yesterday for the first time in almost a month I think. It is a sad deal that we get the same action and interaction going including photos, video, links and sound files just using text on the phone. That causes very little need to go to Slothville to look at nothingness. We got change 5 years ago that hasn’t played out to be good, this change is similar in a lot of ways.
I still think you need to go pro turf and the bump is important. Might as well get it put in. Also, might as well look for a league that uses either a pitching machine or a soft toss mashine for the pitch instead of a tee. The tee is a great tool, but that is all it is. Its a tool to work on your cut not a means to the end of putting a ball in play. The ball moves, its hard to hit, there is no sense in giving them a wrong impression about the game or the tee. You’ll play hell in a couple of years getting them to drill on a tee because they see it as a step backwards. Might as well avoid that. Texas kids have great opportunities to play baseball. Take advantage of it.
You best be looking into pro turf and some good clay and a nice quarter tarp to put over the cut in front of the dish during bp. They will wreck your infield area around bp with bp and it won’t look good for the games. I assume you are throwing from the flat at this age so you don’t need to start thinking about portable bumps v. real bumps yet. When you get to real bumps I would make a wood or fiberglass form and pack the clay on top of that. It will give you a good base and shape for one and it won’t make you use a ton of clay to have a sweet mound. Sissor lift lighting should do for now.
