I'll get this started...my youngest gave up on baseball last fall, picked up more basketball and he cant wait for football, so I am down to my 13u son who plays for the Texas Oilers-Nowell. They finished the fall strong, winning their last 3 tournaments including a super NIT to get them qualified for the Elite 32 in Orlando in July, which we are going to. I have heard this one can be a beatdown but the boys are excited to go and a week at the beach cant be that bad.

We added a few kids that should make this team pretty salty, playing time will definitely be earned. There are 5 V-Tool tourneys on the schedule which should be fun for the boys, they have people walking around the tournaments videoing and putting highlights on Twitter



anyone have any experience with middle finger pain swinging a bat? he can throw just fine, doesnt hurt playing basketball, but squeezing a bat is causing him some pretty intense discomfort on his right middle finger, going up the tendon on the back of his hand toward the wrist. he says he doesnt remember jamming it or hurting it at all, it just started hurting last week at practice.

ice and advil?

good luck fellas, lets hear where everyone is playing this spring.

Take a little time now on the finger and maybe strengthen with bucket of rice and gyro ball. Orlando is a grind- we didnt show up with a team built to win it. The teams that went to championship had 12 - 15 pitchers. Second time my kid went he was flown in to pitch for another team. It is fun- if schedule is not locked down and you get a voice Id play Five Tool, PBR, and PG events. Have fun

Glen is right on regarding Orlando, or most any of the big events. Just don't get discouraged that you don't stack up. It's sad that you can have a salty team locally but when you get to the top, it's mediocre. Those teams are built to win, everyone pitches, and pitches well, and they have a fleet of PO for their starting & closing group. You basically get out-billfolded is what I call it. It's a fun time but you have to know what you're in for when it begins.

Enjoy it now, it'll be over before you know it.

If anyone is intrested, Hagen has a DeMarini CF Zen Black -10 2 3/4 barrel 29/19. Bat is like new, he has only swung it a handful of times and that was last Spring pre-Covid (we played 2 games), he didn't use it at all this past fall... He prefers his aluminum bats and he wants a Cat 9 so he needs to sale a bat.

$250/OBO.

Let me know if you're intrested and I can shoot you a text (eight - 1- seven - two-six-niner-1-tres -2-four.)

This is from the only game he used it in.

We are with the Canes out of Decatur again. Largely the same team, though I hope it changes a little as we move along...was really hoping to upgrade at 2 spots over the off season, but only got one. I'm ready to get on the practice field...I'm so sick of hitting/throwing in cages, I could throw up.

Looks like we are gonna go to Gulf Shores for a big one at some point, which the boys will love...but I don't have the confidence we can hang at that level. Doesn't matter I guess.

We have a great core group of parents/kids who all get along great and camp together, and a coach we really like, so the rest is gravy for a while.

We had our first scrimmage last night and the boys looked good. We are supposed to have 2 more scrimmages Saturday in Decatur if the rain allows.

First tournament is next weekend, the V Tool Texas 20 in Melissa.

Dale what age group are yall? I coach a 11U AAA team, we will be in Gulf Shores this year June 9th - 13th. Make sure yall have plenty of pitching, I hear you play alot of games, and I believe you can bring 2 or 3 extra players with ya.

JS. You have your kid playing where he needs to. At 13 he needs to see more than just the local baseball. I know your kid wants to play at HS level and maybe further. There are exceptions but most that dont play competitive baseball wont make a good HS team. HS my kid went to would have kids that would be starters on 90% of HS teams get cut. We had a middle infielder get cut because the infield was so talented and crowded and he is playing D2 baseball this year. Do what is best and enjoy the ride. Make the sacrifices, enjoy the out of town stays, eating out together, etc.

And Dale Junior is right. Bring 3 xtra pitchers at least.

when my oldest was 7 we had a pretty salty rec league coach pitch team and decided to enter our first tournament. we played cody straits then 7u edge team and i remember thinking that our boys would never, ever, be able to compete with a team like that lol....then the next day we played spitfire and got beat 8-4, they had 4 2-run HRs on us at the star in euless. great memories.

that edge-strait team was very good for a couple years then seemed to have broken up and i believe cody dropped his kid back down to his age and has still been coaching, they would be 12u now. great organization, and back then had awesome uniforms and logo.

yeah, its been a fun ride so far, i wouldnt change the time we get to spend with our kids. rockwall is as competitive as they come for HS ball so it will be fun to see who sticks it out in a couple years when hes a freshman.

We have been with them a couple years now. Great organization. I remember playing Cody’s team in 7u-8u. They would always beat us by 1 run. Never did beat them. He is with a different organization now I believe.

We played the worst baseball ever since I’ve coached the team. We just haven’t had enough practices yet.

13u Oilers went 2-0 yesterday, still shaking off some rust for sure.

We had Brock checked out last week and it's tendonitis in his shoulder, he played 2 innings at first yesterday, for the first time ever, and just hit other than that. He has 2 more therapy sessions at Arrosti Monday and Wednesday and hopefully we will have it worked out. We don't play again till the end of the month so he won't be throwing much between now and then.

We play at 2 and 4 today, good luck to all you guys.

I'll jump in this year as we have both boys 10U playing. They play for a fairly new club out of the Woodlands. The South Texas Iron Fins. The boys play on different level teams so it makes for some long practice nights at Scrap Yard. The step son's team went 1-1 in pool play Friday night and play today at 1:15. My other son has his first tourney next weekend. They are playing in the South Texas Super NIT at Scrap Yard. Some decent ball was played, but still a lot of work to do.
Good luck to all today.

Oilers went 2-0 again yesterday, it was a great start, especially considering we were missing 4 of our best arms this weekend due to vacation and injuries.

We have some work to do with the bat but have a few weeks now to figure it out.

We lost our 2nd yesterday to a very good team that we tied on Saturday. We just ran out of pitching, and they hit them where we weren't. All in all a great 1st tournament of the year. Brady played great all weekend, hitting the ball hard to all fields, particularly oppo. He started our 1st game on Sunday and pitched 4 1/3 on 64 pitches and gave up 3 runs.

Anyone have a first base mitt for a 12U player you’d let go for a decent price? Kid is probably going to have to play a little bit of first base this year and I’m not wanting to break the bank on a new one. I guess anywhere from a 12-12.5” glove would be fine. He’s a right handed thrower.

A transition year for me. I stepped away from managing in order to continue to develop and grow our program. Round Rock Baseball Academy. If anyone is looking for a 10U or 11U team this fall in the Round Rock area let me know, we're going to have tryouts in May.


Played last weekend in Dripping Springs, knocked some rust off, learned a lot, but ready to put some gas on the fire.

Our 11u boys played a 12u tournament in ElCampo and did OK. We definitely had some rust but overall pleased with their performance. We lost our second game yesterday to a good 12 Sliders team, 6-1.
We probably wont play another tournament until middle of April.

My 12u son will play in his second tournament of the spring this weekend. They went 2-2 in the first on and certainly have alot to work on! We'll be playing V Tool this weekend so I'm excited to see how the new pitching regs go! Have any of you guys played V Tool yet this year? I'm all for changing the culture and protecting arms!

brock was "discharged" from arrosti yesterday, they said his shoulder was looking a lot better but made sure he knows he still needs to be stretching and rolling it daily to make sure the tendonitis doesnt come back.

he played 2nd at practice last night and threw hard for the first time a 3 weeks, said his arm felt great and wanted to pitch a bullpen but the coach and i both squashed that. we have gotten the football out a few times and threw in the backyard but only briefly.

he wont pitch this weekend for sure and we will play it by ear for the next tourney although the coach already said he doesnt want to rush it at all.

we have two boys now with what sounds like severs in their feet, all a part of growing up i suppose...

the boys went 3-1 this weekend playing up with 14s on a 60/90 field. had a rough 2nd game saturday where pitchers couldnt find strikes early then when we found one that could, he got t'd off on lol.

we got dropped down to the 3rd bracket because of how many runs we gave up in that 2nd game, played good in game 3 and made it to game 4, the "championship." we were up the whole game and coughed up 2 runs in the last inning to go down by 1.

brock led off our last inning with a base hit and ended up coming around to score the tying run, then his best friend got a base hit with the bases loaded to win it. it was fun to watch them battle back. brocks bat is still quiet and he still didnt pitch but he played some great 2nd base and hopes to pitch a little this week to see how his arm feels.

and yes, we al realize we were not the "champions" and the boys were having fun with their "participation medals" they were calling them.

how bout these uni's....

We played at Rocker B, and went 4-1, losing the championship game. We could get nothing going offensively, and their entire lineup hit the ball, mostly where we weren’t.

Brady pitched good in our 2nd game on Sunday, giving up 2 runs, I believe, over 4 innings.




Rocker B Ranch is absolutely phenomenal! If you havnt played there yet, you owe it to your boys, and yourselves to do so. EVERYTHING is first class. They drag/rake/water/stripe the field...between EVERY game. All the fields and facilities are in fantastic shape. Can’t wait to go back.

Rocker B Ranch is absolutely phenomenal! If you havnt played there yet, you owe it to your boys, and yourselves to do so. EVERYTHING is first class. They drag/rake/water/stripe the field...between EVERY game. All the fields and facilities are in fantastic shape. Can’t wait to go back.

We’re debating on a tournament at Rocker B soon. Is there cabins to rent out on the property or did you find hotels?

We took our travel trailer and stayed 6 miles away at Rock Creek Camp, they have small cabins for rent as well. Rocker B has cabins for rent, but I understand they book far in advance. I’m sure there are many rentals around the lake, and VRBO and such.

Either way, if you can get to Rocker B...GO....whatever you have to do...GO. The kids LOVED it...bring their swim trunks.

We're holding tryouts for 10U and 11U teams next month. If anyone in the Round Rock area is interested in playing come on out.

Dale, Just now saw this regarding Gulf Shores. Don't be concerned that you don't stack up to what shows up there. It is a massive pool of teams and the first 2-4 games are seeding pool play and then grouped into 4 divisions to better suit your team's skills and level of play.

We have been 3 times between two boys and it has always been fun, aside from rain outs and all dirt infields, lol. We had a salty team from two states and didn't make the top tier of 10 or so teams. We won the second grouping. It was a great trip each time.

Spend some time on VRBO and look around. There is plenty to do, just message me for other information. Just be advised that the field are 80% dirt, also, gate fee is expensive, like $40 per day per person and $125-150 for the week pass, be prepared for that sticker shock, lol. Bring a tent and weights to stake it down too, no shade at the complexes that we played.

Quality info, thank you sir! The girls got some condos rented, not what we really wanted but I'm fine pretty much anywhere.


We are in Jacksboro this weekend looking for a gold ring after a couple silvers. Good luck to everyone taking the field this weekend.
