Well we played our first tournament this weekend and the boys started off great. We won the first game 15-1 and the second game 10-0 the bats are alive as of right now, so hope it keeps going through the weekend.

Well we ended up 2nd in the tournament. We only allowed 3 runs in four games then the wheels fell apart in the championship game. Very proud of the boys for their first tournament of the season. I see good things coming for this group of young men.

Watching GC as group of 9u majors are playing in a 10U tourney and are devastating a team that burnt all their pitchers out getting to that game..
First at bat for the 9u team lasted 45 minutes...

Rough weekend of ball for both of my boys. Oldest played in a 13u perfect game event and found out pretty quick that they are not ready for that level of competition! It's no fun getting a beat down, but it will sure let them know they need to work harder. My 10yo's team was flat all weekend at the plate and in the field. On a positive note both of my boys did their jobs and kept playing hard despite the scores. We'll chalk it up as a learning weekend and get after it again in a couple of weeks.

you either win or you learn, we have been on the learning end of a few beatdowns too lol.

our scrimmage went well, both teams pitched a different kid every inning and all the boys got 5 a bats. brock had a couple hits and a couple walks, gave up a hit and got 3 groundball outs in his inning. we held our own against a good team so hopefully we can carry it over.

We had a last minute round robin tournament added for this weekend, wood bat only, it's our first time in a wood bat tourney so it should be interesting. The boys are excited. It's going to be on turf but still hoping the weather holds off.

I have a hog hunting spot right down the road too so we may get a little shooting in before we head back home in the evenings.

Parents: Is it more important to win a ring at 9-12 years old OR watch your kid improve, prepare and learn the game?

Whelp - I have no idea how we got involved in this one, but we will be seeing you, lol.

From what I understand, this is a fairly green AAA team, so playing with you guys and Fiveash should be an experience to say the least, lol.

If Jax swings a 29-19 bat, what should we look for in wood?

Awesome, man I couldn't remember if you guys ended up there or not. We just got a new schedule and it's Dodgers-Greenway instead of the Stix.

I would stay with a -10 if you can find one. We Have a 30/25 Axe and a 30/24 Marucci, but I'm hoping someone else on the team has a -8 or -10 we can use, it's tough enough hitting with wood already, need that extra swing speed.

Greenway is us! That's our facility. It is considered more Celina / Prosper than McKinney.

Jax got a -5 that he got to paint at the Warstic facility. It was just for looks though, and the fun of it.

I have looked at the metal stuff, but didn't know if the wood bats would be similar, or if the specs would be different.

I will have to look for a place that may have a selection.

When buying wood bas for kids make sure you get ash. don't get talked into the harder woods. Sure you get a little more pop and less flex out of the two others but the sweet spot on ash is larger and they flex more therefore less broken bats. If your kid does not hit with wood they will break some bats and more bats when they first start swinging wood bats.

If you get the chance call Cooperstown bat company in NY and get a bat made they are awesome. Just tell them the players age and size and they will get it done. I had one made for my son last year and he loves it and hit BP everyday with that bat.

If you can find a Viper wood bat they are really good. Several of the boys in our organization swing them and they are really tough bats.

I've been there before! Lol. We've also purchased several from Academy and they've all been good. The Marrucci's have probably been my boy's favorites from Academy. I'd go Ash for his first, softer, cheaper, and still has plenty of pop when they barrel one up.

We have a Warstic - It's still too big for him. He does tee work with it.

I'm going to make a trip to dbat and monkey sports over in Allen today. See what I can find.

I need a cool indoor bat rack to hang in the boys room, got any suggestions?



Also, If anybody knows anyone playing USA baseball bat rules and they have a 7/8 year old. I have a Louisville Solo 618 first release 28/17 -11, 2 5/8" barrel that has only seen a few dozen hits. I'd let it go for $80.

Boys came out timid to two good team last night in the fog.. fell apart way early and frankly played the worst baseball theyve ever played.
Tans on the bench due to his arm. Just hitting and running.. and i thought he was going to lose his 9yearold mind yelling at his teammates to get their heads right..
Had to quietly remind him he was the smallest on the team and to ease up just a bit lol.
Teammates did respond..and did their now-patented late game come back attempts..but came up short..again.
Gave up 21 runs in two games. 3 earned.. yes 3.
Not a fan of Friday night games..

Now we wait a see who we get on Sunday..

Love this game.

I always liked the Friday night games. It gave me Saturday to clean up my yard and do a few things before the weekend was over.

Spent the day (from getting up at 5:45 til just now)..travelling around playing in a consolation bracket since the boys went 0-2 on friday...
They decided they would not be beat and showed up in every game..

Poorest ran tournament weve been apart of yet.. didnt find out who where or when were were scheduled to play until almost midnight last night.. had to get up at 5:45 to get there..then find out nations double booked us at premier and we had to go to another park..wait for them to line the fields and find umps.. got that game done..then ran to scrapyard..played..then had to wait and hour and a half past the time we were scheduled to play because they ran late, THEN they decided to let us play on an open field...
Had kids tired, 9 of them hurt from getting hit with pitches and sliding incidents..puking from being sick.. and they wouldnt quit.
Tourney sucked..but they proved something to us and themselves.
Tan had a horrible day at bat..bad takes and some bad calls.. wasnt too pleased with himself..especially since its all hes allowed to do.
Head to ortho tomorrow to get cleared to start throwing "hopefully"..
PT has gone great..still taking it slow..which doesnt make me his favorite person either .

Hope for Tan's sake, and yalls relationship that he can get back at it, hahaha.

It was a bittersweet weekend for us. I barely got to watch much baseball, but was proud of the kiddos for showing up and playing decent against really good competition. Jax has seemed to fit in well with this group, but still can't find his bat. He pitched well, played left field. Then played SS, second and Center for the Sunday games.

Really missed an opportunity to see Brock and J out there. I was really looking forward to saying hi.

I took driving duty, since the baseball games were about 15 mins. from the house. Volleyball was down in East Dallas with my Daughter. At least baseball is outside and can be somewhat therapeutic at times. There's nothing therapeutic about 6+ straight hours in a warehouse.

Sometimes that climate control is worth it's weight though lol.

Jax looked great pitching Saturday, other than 1 hiccup he struck 3 out in the first and was solid the rest of the game.

Brock couldn't hit a **** beach ball right now and it's frustrating. He looks great in the cage, it's just not carrying over to live pitching right now at all.

He pitched great Sunday morning though, he's never pitched on a Sunday before and never thrown more than 1 inning so going 3 against a good team was big for him. 1 hit, 1 walk, 4ks and gave up a run. But he's gotta get that bat going.

The 8s won a modified kid pitch tourney, which is where I was for 12 hours yesterday. Logan had a couple hits, 1 was a rocket, but struck out looking a couple times too, it was a good learning experience.

Sorry we couldn't hook up but I'm sure we will see you guys around this spring.

I spoke with Godwin during our last game against you guys! He said that Sunday matchup was a beautiful game to watch. Pitching duel at its finest.

Also found out through talking with an old teammate who is on that Godwin team, that they are only using wood bats during BP and cage time.

I'm wondering after this weekend, if that is not a better route to go?

Yeah their kid went 6 innings, 45 strikes on 63 pitches, gave up 1 hit and had 9ks! I was watching on game changer and texted a dad that was there and asked him if Nolan was pitching for them lol.

It's tough when you lose a game 2-0 and get 1 hit.

I agree on the wood bats. They definitely hit the ball well against us in Saturday. I bought both my boys wood bats last fall with plans on using them all winter and between basketball and life we didn't really get much baseball in.

It's tough when you lose a game 2-0 and get 1 hit.

I agree on the wood bats. They definitely hit the ball well against us in Saturday. I bought both my boys wood bats last fall with plans on using them all winter and between basketball and life we didn't really get much baseball in.
This is exactly what happened to us - luckily we had a blast with basketball, and had a great season. But between that cheer and volleyball - I'm running out of ways to create time, lol.

Got to the ballpark at 8:00 AM yesterday for the 9:00 AM pool game of our Sunday only. Pulled out of there at 9:30 PM after losing the championship 4 to 0. Nothing like ripping the bandaid off for the 1st tourney of Spring

The rain has kept up off our practice field all but two days since we started this spring. We faced some decent pitching and hit okay, but you could definitely tell our fielding is way behind. Just sloppy, sloppy, sloppy...

Onward and upward.

Brock couldn't hit a **** beach ball right now and it's frustrating. He looks great in the cage, it's just not carrying over to live pitching right now at all..
This is Tanner as well... smoking hot in cage .. because of his size and he likes to crowd the plate....his strikezone has been hard for pitchers to get to...and hes gotten used to waiting for the walks..but now has become a perfect strike watcher.. and then panics with 2 on him...
No idea how to fix it. Something hes gotta work out?

That's awesome. I guess they just have to work it out, I'm not sure. Brock is actually swinging, and swinging hard he's just missing it right now. He also fouls a few off almost every at bat. Hopefully they can get it figured out...
