Somehow we are 6-2, not sure if the league isn't that good this year because we are just an ok team.

4-5 with a triple and three walks.  Not horrible for not swinging a bat for more than five minutes.

Well I'm headed back to Friday nights next year. Tuesday we had a double header. first game was a against a decent team that was 5-3. second game was against a winless team....we had 16 guys show up so a few of the better players said to the coach play us in the first game and we have no problem sitting out the second.
what does he do? he bats fucking 16 in both games.......I played 2 games and got up 4 times!!

But also dumb to have a roster that size.

4-6, 3 doubles, 3 walks, would have been four doubles but had a slow guy on first.

3 walks in softball.....I batted lead off and thought it was my job to get on base......think I scored on all three....so..Ok.

Sounds fine. Smart. Certainly more competitive. I see a first pitch that looks half-decent, and I'm-a swinging. Don't do that in tourneys, tho.

No fast pitch this year, so this is arc with a 20 foot ceiling.  If the balls are missing high/deep, I can't do much with it anyway, so it's better to let it go.

Tough year for me so far. team is winning ether 9-2 or 10-2 {I still think the league stinks and the teams are not that good this year} but I cant hit for shit ever since my surgeries the beginning of last summer ....three things happen every at bat for me, a clean single up the middle, lazy fly ball, or a pop up  that drops behind the infield and before the outfield.


...sucks because I've always been a strong line drive hitter with power to the gaps and I'd hit some home runs by accident.

Try widening stance and not stepping, just rotate back foot/hip.

If you simplify the swing in arc softball, it's really pretty easy to place the ball.  Just forget about the bomb and don't dip.  Once the injuries heal, start ripping again.

Can't spell either.

Two things to do when you're struggling in arc - what I mentioned above, and two, crowd the plate and just try to pull the ball through the first/third baseman.  Gets you in the right mindset and swing path.  Then you can get cute once the pull swing is right.
