They at least have the teams broke up into divisions now so you can look and see who you might play. My son’s team is 10s Division 2 and there are some salty teams in our division

Click on teams then
Scroll down to find age group

Brock is in Frisco at 2 and 4, Logan is In Carrollton at 3 and 430. Not sure which one I will be at yet

Really hoping the front keeps getting pushed back, Sunday could really suck.

A little PSA for all the Parents out there - we had to shut my son down for at least 1.5 months or possibly this year due to G.I.R.D - Glenohumeral internal rotation deficit (GIRD) is an adaptive process in which the throwing shoulder experiences a loss of internal rotation (IR). GIRD has most commonly been defined by a loss of >20į of IR compared to the contralateral shoulder. My son is at >35%. If your son is a pitcher or throws a lot be on the look out. According to the two orthos we saw, it can be pretty common for boys right around or in puberty. Throwing harder, growing, over use and not taking precautions are all factors plus others. I think double duty of fall ball (first time we did it) and QB last fall was the culprit but no one really knows for sure. There was never an acute moment when he noticed. Just complained his arm was hurting after throwing. I finally listened after his last outing when he told me he knew his velocity was way off. He's now in PT 5 days a week at home with another office visit next week. The hope is he is progressing with range of motion/strength and could possibly start a throwing program to strengthen it in a coupe weeks. If he has to sit this whole year out he will. Best case he is back at the end of March. The good news is we caught it early before any real damage happened. Both docs said they same thing, "we don't care about Tommy John surgery. Guys come back stronger after having it. We really don't have good surgeries for this if it gets too advanced." Instead of doing rehab like us, I would strongly recommend "prehabing." Make sure your little guys are taking care of themselves and good luck this season.

We just got our ***** handed to us. Worst game I can remember sitting through. Pitchers struggled to throw strikes is an understatement.

Hope game 2 is better.

Good luck guys!!!

We Went 2-0 in a wet tacky early morning mist..
First team we shoulda smoked out of the gate..but the boys decided to sleep in and let them get up 5-3.. then the opposing coach did the old top of the inning letting one kid warm up as pitcher then change him eattheclock move...
Few of the kids picked up on our disgust with it and rallied the boys who went and destroyed 3 of their pitchers for the rest of the clock..
Second game the boys beat a VERY good team of much bigger kids.. made a couple question their choices of wanting to play infield...
Hope the keep it up tomorrow...
Waiting on bracket position now. Sitting 3rd right now.. (2pm start tomorrow...that would be nice)

Tan got to catch to fiinsh the second game and was phenomenal..even if i didnt let him throw down to 2nd (not happy with me)..
"His" pitchers (thats what he calls them) obviously missed him because their velo all went up with him back there..

His bat still sucks... crushing it in cage... frustrating as it is for us watching...its starting to eat at him..
Thinking of telling him when he thinks a pitch is a ball to step in front of it...that way they will all become strikes and youll swing at it...
Probably wont..but running out of pep talks..


Not sure what this weathers gonna do..

Well my son’s team went 2-0 today. They are in the platinum bracket but got the 8am game. Kinda screwy how they did the bracket in my opinion.

My son pitched today just one inning and threw 11 pitches. 7 strikes and 4 balls. He was in the zone today.

Our 8s were down 15-2 to a good team from Louisiana and fought back and won the **** thing 16-15 lol. Those boys played 2 basketball games at 11 and 1 and then the baseball game at 3. We have all long ran out of words to describe this group of boys.

They won the 2nd game 19-4 and play at 12 tomorrow if it doesn't get called.

My 11u had his hide tanned again in his 2nd game, it was ugly day of baseball for this group. Our pitchers couldn't throw a strike and it made it a tough day on the catchers.

They are scheduled to play 10a tomorrow, but I don't think we will end up playing.... a topic for a different day.

What happened? Was it a weather thing?

We won both games - 6 seed in platinum bracket. Playing at noon against a very good team. Pitching was okay. Defense was great and the bats had some decent hits, but the balls and baserunning is what separated us today. We threw strikes, the other teams didn’t.

Weather was effing miserable.

We played a HS tourney in Brenham Thur-Sat. Glad it was over yesterday. Just walked outside to perfect coffee and stay indoors day. Worried about kid yesterday as he lands so hard on front foot it was cutting out on him. Worried about hammy pull the entire time. He went 5 scoreless gave up 2 hits against Coppell. Looking forward to 70-80 degree weekends

Yeah looks like we were1 of 4-5 teams that decided to pull out last night. I didn't think we would play anyway and just got the alert that all games were canceled.

Congrats to you guys, good first tournament for sure!

Yea. Proud of him. He is working hard in weight room and focused. I think he had thrown 4 times now and given up 1 earned run. They are gonna make a run I think. Have beat mostly 6a teams. Tied to Lamar Friday. They are 10-0-1. Only bad thing is they will walk through District and they may get soft doing it

I've always heard that with Rockwall and Rockwall-Heath, their district is pretty soft and doesn't test them before the playoffs.

Sounds like a great day of ball to me......minus the temps!

Both of my boys won 1 and lost 1 today, but the teams played SOO much better than they did 2 weeks ago so that's a plus! Weather was brutal, but both my boys catch so I'd think they prefer this to the summer heat. Congrats to all the success over the weekend and good luck on the next one!

Are you guys Backyard Ballers Black, out of Montgomery? I saw them on the list of 9u teams coming to Dallas for the Super NIT on 3/24...
Tan was on that team last year..
we stayed down on Red so he could be starting catcher when black went to majors.

Have a good friend who's Son played in a Championship down in Mesquite last night.

27 degrees and dropped throughout the game due to wind chill. I can tell you, that game wasn't good baseball. Heck, our games Saturday weren't really good baseball.

I'd say more nuts than anything at this point. Sometimes I just dont know about this stuff.

Just caught a few innings to show his backup that it was his spot and hed be back for it permanently shortly..
Didnt let him throw down anyone...
But his arm is strong..we do a way modified warmup now...which i think is better...use bands and im monitoring his mechanics like a hawk...
Were off for next 3 weeks i think with just practices scheduled... so we got lots of time to workup to throwing down to 2 or 3.
No hurry..

Good baseball, in the field and at the plate, goes with being loose.

Not much is loose when it's 27 deg!

I hope we see better weather ahead soon.

And speaking of crazy, I worked a swim meet Sunday since baseball was canceled band to help pay for baseball lol. not only are the parents and coaches crazy, but those kids practice every day but Sunday and the elite level ones, even elementary school ones, practice twice a day for 3-4 days a week.

I couldn't help but watch and think how good that would actually be for a baseball players shoulders

Best part is the coaches/parents yelling instructions (mainly just kick kick kick or go go go) every time their kid lifts their head to take a breath.

So how do the bats hold up in cold temps? I thought it wasn't recommended to use composite or thin wall aluminum in temps below 50. Cracks and dents...
