2013 Softball Chat


RE: 2013 Softball Chat

Talking about big games - Middle Creek travels to Apex. Both teams are undefeated and the winner will have the outright lead in the Tri-9.

lbeck...listen here is the truth...federal funding means all federal funds received by Wake County Schools. I am sure you trust your friend who is in charge of the fields.

RE: 2013 Softball Chat

so he dont know who taking care of the fields, and thats his job. The county does the same for softball as they do for the baseball fields.

RE: 2013 Softball Chat

wrong wrong the county allows the baseball fields to be better than the softball one's that is the whole point...there is no need to argue with you though..I will just file the complaint with the OCR

RE: 2013 Softball Chat

Cleveland got whooped by South on Friday...what is going on with them. Playing people that can't catch or hit while putting one of the more talented people on the bench. I won't mention any names but seriously play the girl who can hit and field most any position

Harnett Central crushes East Wake 11-1

This was the other way around East Wake beat Harnett Central 7-1

RE: 2013 Softball Chat

Love the chatter about title 9 and the softball fields. The bottom line is that baseball will ALWAYS get more attention. From the turf to the scoreboard, to the dugouts, to the dirt, to the field conditions. If you want your high school softball organization to be top notch, the bottom line is that you have to roll up your sleeves and be vocal and plan on doing a lot of grunt work yourself. We all love this game. - be a active participant, no matter how unfair it is.

On another note - Apex beat Middle Creek tonight 1-0. Middle Creek pitcher was pitching a perfect game thru 5 2/3. A beat out single and a overthrow by the shortstop was the difference in the game. Apex pitcher faced the minimum of 21 batters with the help from 3 double plays from the defense. Great game to watch - both teams deserve a lot of credit.

I just read post off of "This board rocks.com from ahogbackr. I found it interesting enough to forward.

Part Time vs. Full Time

Every year I am always surprised at the attitudes of school ball coaches towards travel ball practices and team functions.
They are glad to have travel ball players, which they are concerned with 3 month's out of the year - while a travel ball coach is concerned with their player 12 out of the 12 months of the year.
I am all about supporting the players school but it is not always the case in return - I have heard recently about a School ball coach saying that if his players attended a travel ball practice they would be suspended one game. If hurt - suspended five . This of course makes no sense to me - they depend on these programs the other nine months to develop the players they are using for 3 month's - once the season is over - you are history till next season.
To me this put's the girls in a rock and hard place - Hypothetical question - What if travel coaches said - No school ball .
Like I said I am all about supporting your school but find can't fathom these coaches drawing a line in the sand like that.
What advantages are there to putting your "part time" job before your full time job - How much do these coaches work with schools to get their girls seen?
How many times does the HS softball coach talk to the player outside of the school season? How many college coaches are attending your "normal" games? They certainly enjoy the effort, attitude, and play when they are playing for them. In one year a travel ball coach will put in the time that a HS coach puts in, in four - just saying.
