What was baseball guy dad saying
Yelling at our junior ump (18’ish yo girl) about calls, yelling “why this if last inning that!?”, pushing the boundaries of 6/7 yo baseball rules. I’m definitely a “have fun” dad which probably doesn’t bode well for my son’s competitive future though.

Find out what actual league/organizations there are. Little League, Pony Baseball all those kind. Might be more fun.
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

We lost in the semi final today for spring ball(delayed season obv). Had a “baseball dad” coach on the other team. Main ump had to come in from the complex and make him stfu. Lotta that in my future I assume. Not my scene at all. May kick his entire ass when not in front of kids and families and grandparents though.

Yes, it’s a little too long 31 inches, but it’s only -10 and he will grow into the length. I thought it prob most practical to get like a 30/22 or 29/21, but who care about transitioning to -5 in 2 years anyway? I want him to have as much fun hitting now as possible.

His previous bat was the crappy USA Baseball certified, which are specifically designed to mimick Wood bats (smaller sweet spot, less pop, less forgiving). All the other kids on his team had regular usssa bats and were ripping liners off the end and knob all the time. I had no idea when I bought it.

Usssa bats average about 3.5% more exit velocity and 15-20 feet more distance on contact.

also congrats on exactly cloning yourself.

bet he hits bombs with it.

I have a barely used cat7 30inch drop 8 sitting in my garage that I paid $150 for ten months ago and would give to you for free if you come by my house in mhk to pick it up sometime. Also a very sexy barely used Rawlings Quattro 29inch drop 11.

For real, I’d make that trip. PM me your address.
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

Also, hilarious thing at nicname jr’s (Max) first fall ball game today.

We were the home team today, and heading into the bottom of the first and I look down and like every kid on the team is outside of the dugout with their own bat “timing” the pitcher on his warmup pitches. I was like wtf is this? I’ve been to a million games and never seen anything like it.

daughter just got bumped up a swim level and now the coaches are having them do "dryland" workouts in addition to an extra half hour of swimming. (and of course paying for dryland is extra). also the head coach is a goddam squawk (how the eff did that happen). smdh

Yes, Mrs nicname and I were very confused. I think it’s supposed to be a team unity/intimidation thing, but just seemed very dorky to me.

I've got a Louisville 125 fungo bat if any of you dad coaches need one.

JK...  I carry this thing around like Tom Cruise in A Few Good Men.  It helps me think

Hitting fungos, especially flies, is a delicate art. Fun to practice tho. Got myself a Mizuno elite a few months back.

Our other assistant was a magician... he coached hs jv for 20 years.  He could hit a ball straight up in the air at home plate for catchers at will.

Yeah it is. I always got the shorter fungo and was pinpoint accurate with it
