Let Her Be a Kid!


There are a lot of really smart people involved in the great game of fastpitch softball. It has been my pleasure to learn from many of them. Here is a list compiled from some of those really smart people and published by Denny at Tincher Pitching.  I’ve stolen the list but added a few of my own points to their very good article.



Let her be a kid! She isn’t a professional softball player or a Division I athlete. Let her have fun. let her play with her friends. She is much more likely to remember vacations or fun days with the family that many of the millions of softball games. 


Give her at least one day a week away totally away from the game! Find fun things to do away from the field. Spend time being a silly kid rather than a hard core softball player!
