we are heading to nacona/bowie tomorrow with the 8s and 11s to get rained out saturday and possibly play a 1 day sunday. we were able to throw a team together, team hustle, using 5 older brothers from our 8u team and 4 more from brocks team, for an 11u team, and they both play at the same field so it all worked out well if the rain lets us play. winning teams in each division get customized nacona gloves

good luck fellas

Nokona gloves are awesome. My father in law bought Brady one 2 years ago and it's his most prized possession.

Well another weekend of ball in the books for my 10yo. We played a double header Saturday and Sunday out at cotton ranch. The boys were flat and deflated the entire weekend. I think the fatigue from a long spring has finally set in. One more double header next weekend and he will get a much needed break. On a positive note he continues to swing the bat extremely well and managed 2 dingers in the first game this morning. One was his first grand slam! 13yo will play 3 weekends in a row and then on to gulf shores. Baseball has been a roller coaster, but we sure love it! Hope all the kiddos had a good weekend on the diamond!

My son got a nondisplaced crack in a bone in his hand while making a tag on a kid that didn't slide into home, he tagged the kid in the knee's hard, his mitt flew about 10' off his hand and you could tell he was in instant pain.

Got to the ship.. 15 hours at a ball park dominating other teams..and ran into a really good set of AAA 8 yearolds playing up .. that played us hard and inched us out with a single run in last inning. Little team were monsters on the field with fantastic IQ.... parents not so great..

Tan caught all 5 games today (sans one inning wear i took him out to cool him off).
Played phenominal and got some hits today and finally got a hold of a good one to drop in deep outfield with no one under it for a change.

Ambush by chance?

Our 8s had to play 9open yesterday because of the rain, the 8open division was canceled, the played two majors teams and held their own, losing 7-4 and 6-5, we out hit the first team 8-1 but had 5 outs on the bases 😫

The 11s were thrown together Team Hustle this weekend and had a lot of fun playing all over the field, first game we didn't hit and lost 3-1 and second game we tied a 10majors team that played very well, Brock went 3 up 3 down in the 1st, didn't look like they were very interested in trying to hit him lol, and then we threw some kids that don't pitch much and proceeded to walk 11 kids over the next 4 innings and ended up in a tie 10-10😂👎

Both boys are back at it this weekend too, and once again rain is in the forecast 👎👎

Gotcha, we haven't played them, but sounds like that Ambush team we've played a few times.

If some of you remember we were on live streaming our game against them in Houston last year when we came back and won with no time left and all hell broke loose after the game haha

jshouse - that kid on the mound has some good form for his age. Has he been working with a pitching coach?

Our 14U team knocked off a majors level team yesterday on a close one. However, we turned around & took a beaten by another good team. We struggle with pitching depth. Too many walks & loading bases & then a hit damages us. Saw some good baseball.

He has had to bounce around bit just due to schedules changing, he got a lot working with Mason Englert over the winter and has been to Linty Ingram at ASB a handful of times this spring. I am currently looking for someone because Linty is so hard to get in with. I've heard really good feedback on Chris Salerno in Forney but he's hard to get a spot with as well.

Oh ok. Looks like he uses his body well with weight shift & timing of glove/hand separation. Many kids are more arm & almost over top at front foot land.
In the Tyler area we donít have as many options as probably your area. D-bats in Tyler is where I may have my son work with some pitching

Great day of ball for you guys, but man do they not have any other catchers? Catching 5 games in a day is a great way to get a youngun hurt. I sure wouldn't let him throw at practice this week if it were my boy.

We do... but..they lack blocking skills...like,any.. their great fielders..just not that level of crazy needed behind the plate....and hes a wall...
Trust me i watch him like a hawk.. i was more concerned with him overheating..but cooling rags and that vest did the trick there.

He threw down to 2nd 7 times over the day (not including at inning starts..)..
found it easier to get them comfortable stealing then pick them at 3rd.

He was fine..we had hour and half rest between each game..which was nice.
No practice till wednesday..and hes not throwing at it.. do fielding drills to a bucket.

We will be working his backups.
