?

Calvin has the type of swing of a guy who still splits his workouts in to back/biceps, trains rear delts, and sometimes just "arms".

He is trying to become more athletic and key on hip rotation, fast twitch muscles, wrist/leg alignment, etc.....

He is struggling to let go of his old school ways, but he is trying.  We must continue to support him.  He is finally not wearing his weigh belt on the field, so it's a start.


Something like this Grin

I'm not going to read all 24 pages of this thread but I started playing softball last year for the first time since I was a kid. I grew up playing sports like hockey and football but as I've gotten older I've lost interest in playing sports where people get overly competitive. Softball has been a lot of fun so far. Most of the people that I've played against have been relaxed and made for enjoyable games.

Good luck to you.

Like any sport, there's varying levels of play, and varying levels of how players act.  If you've found a league that fits what you're looking for, it's a good time.

I enjoyed the league that my team was in last year. Another friend that will be playing in the same league asked me to play for their team as well so it looks like I'll be on two teams this year.

We had our first game in the new league last week. The team we played were quite good but very respectful crew. We lost, but it was a fun game.
Last night was our second game. There is nothing worse than playing a bunch of over competitive douche bags. They won but barely, and it had a lot to do with some less than legit calls from their side. That sorta shit kinda ruins the game. Hopefully there isn't too much of that in this league.

You'll always run across a team or a player or two during the course of a season...don't let it ruin the fun for you.

The best way to deal with those types is to beat them.

Played a game in that same league tonight. We got pummeled but everyone had a good time. Didn't hit well but fielded the ball really well. I bring my 4 year old son to the games and that makes for a fun night. He's a pretty energetic kid. We certainly didn't have the problems like last week.
Last weekend was a long weekend in Canada so I drank a ton of beer. It probably led to my poor hitting tonight.  Grin
I skipped my workout last night, but woke up early this morning to make up for it. After the game tonight, I'm cracking off my day 2 work out. It makes for a long day, but at least I won't fall behind.

Started playing on my second team on Thursday night. We won. I fielded the ball well and had some good hits, including a HR.

Playing well; not great. Eyes are a bit of an issue in the field. Trying to muscle it out. Hitting is on point. Hit a grand salami the other night, but didn`t realize it `til I hit the bench. This could be a problem.  Undecided

One of my teams couldn't get enough people to play on Monday night so we forfeited the game which pissed me off to no end.

This happened to me a few times on a team that I drove an hour each way to play on.  Not cool.
