as the title suggests, i’m a senior in high school. i have no experience at all playing softball, though i’ve always been interested in it. i played competitive soccer for 10 years but had to quit when i started high school to participate in marching band, so it’s not like i have zero experience with sports, it has just been a while. my junior year i tried tennis and i didn’t like it, (mostly the coach). i wouldn’t at all be opposed to lessons right before the season or even mid-season, i only just thought about joining. so yeah, do you think i should try it out or not, seeing as i don’t have any experience. any input helps. thanks. :)
Fun fact - There is a ton of slow pitch going on in London and all across the UK. My team is looking for experienced female players upcoming season. We play in the London Softball league, are in the second division out of 6, so we play at a decently high level but still have loads of fun. Games are weeknights and can be all over the city, and there are practices (optional and come with drinks after) and occasionally tournaments on the weekends. Practices should start next month and games will start in April or May.
We also run a travel tournament team and are looking for women for that as well – so if you’re more of a weekends only lady, hit me up anyway!
If you’re looking for a fun, social group of people to sports and drink with this summer – come join us! Drop me a line and let me know a bit about you.
OH – And if you’re keen to get involved but haven’t really played much, drop me a line anyway. There are loads of teams at all sorts of levels, and it’s seriously one of the frie... keep reading on reddit ➡
Howdy! Not sure how many of you guys have done or are currently doing college softball but I need some advice. I was a college recruit for my college (DIV III) and I stopped playing because of discouragement as well as academic focus. I’m going to try out as a walk on for next season and the whole coaching staff has shifted and new blood is flowing through the staff list. It’s been about a year or two since I’ve done any softball related things, how should I approach this situation, how should I prepare myself. I’m friends with some of the volunteer coaches because they were on the roster when I was a freshman. Any advice for me? Any would be greatly appreciated!
She's a Junior this year who played JV in a small-town. She was the only Junior on the team. She hasn't really played competitively or done anything in terms of skills, throwing hard, hitting faster pitching, or anything like that but she's dead set and confident that she can play college softball.
She suddenly decided she wants to pitch as well. From what I've seen from her, she doesn't throw very hard, doesn't have much in terms of off-speed pitches, and just hasn't put in the time and effort in to reach that level needed.
However, she has contacted me and wants me to catch for her and coach her (I played college baseball as a pitcher and almost played professionally in 2009). She said she's lifting her butt off and has a good diet, it's just the fundamentals, ability to throw hard, throw off-speed, and hit the faster (and off-speed when it comes) pitches.
To me it seems like she has a LOT of work to do and I while I feel she could make it if she busted her butt, she just... keep reading on reddit ➡
So I might try out for my schools fast pitch softball team and I played slow pitch maybe 4-5 years ago but I’ve never played fast pitch. Any help or tips going to fast pitch and anything I can do to become better?
For any one that lives in London, UK.
If you have ever wanted to try slowpitch softball, or you're an experienced player looking for a team for the summer. Why not come down to the London Softball League New Players Day.
Happening on the 23rd of February at Wandsworth Common (Bellevue Rd) from 12:30pm. If you are interested get in touch by dropping an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The London Softball League (LSL) (formerly the Greater London Softball Mixed League - GLSML) is the premier open coed slowpitch softball league in the United Kingdom. Comprising of over 50 teams spread across 6 divisions. There is a level of play for everyone, from beginners to top competitive levels.
We want to hear from you!
They don't have enough women for the mixed teams. It's free the first time you come but then £5 after that so you may as well try it. Blokes can come too but definitely under represented by women.

I'm the the father of fraternal twins (1 girl, 1 boy 7 years old). My wife and I signed them up for little league baseball and softball. After we signed them up, my daughter asked me if I could please coach her softball team this season. I told her that I couldn't because I'm already coaching her brothers team and I wouldn't have time to do both. This made her pretty upset and later that day my wife confronted me about it. She told me that it wasn't fair for me to prioritize our son over our daughter and that if I didn't have time to do both that I shouldn't do either. I told her that was ridiculous and that we should just do the obvious thing, she should just coach my daughter's team. She scuffed at this idea and went on about how she didn't know anything about sports. I told her that she could easily learn but this went on and to be honest she made me feel like a really shitty father. AITA?
Does anyone know of any good leagues starting in the spring? I’m looking for men’s or coed slow pitch. Thanks!
Looking to join a weeknight softball league in Springs. Do not have enough people on board to create a team so looking for suggestions on the best ways to find teams looking to add players!
northwestern strands a ton of runners but finally gets the lead in the 6th. lindaman ties the game with a solo shot in the bottom of the 6th. northwestern goes up 2-1 in the 7th. lindsey reaches on a bunt, reynoso gets hit by pitch, sipos pinch hits a sac bunt and adams walks it off with a hit to the right field.
lugo pitches 4.2 innings. trlicek gets her 2nd W of the day despite 6 hits in 2.1 innings.

>Well, you see it's no big deal really/This person is really evil/It's wrong but it's okay because we like this person. >>Wow, what a crazy issue. I agree./Wow, what an asshole!/Wow, it looks like [person] is being screwed by the media.
So these some of the more helpful drills I found for my 14 yr old who wishes to practice catching during her breaks..
Her "coach" actually suggests her to google when she asks him for drills..... lord.....
Of course, I have to come in and help her with it..
Any feedback from you guys?
I am no expert but have to do some researches for her. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
I am looking for a coed softball team to join this spring/summer. I’d like to play in the city, but I do live in the county so that works too.
38 year old male. I pitch two nights a week in a men’s league in Kirkwood and have been playing for...I’m not even sure how long.
If anyone needs a player or can point me in the right direction I’d appreciate it. I can’t even find the website for the forest park league.
I’m open to any and all coed rec leagues. I got divorced in December and all of my friends are still married so I’m bored and want to meet new people
I’m at a bar hammered right meow, but I didn’t see a post and I’m pretty sure those scores are accurate
Anyone know of any good summer softball leagues to join? Bar league or not, doesnt matter. I'm somewhat new to the area and wanted to join a team or maybe try and get one together with the few people I do know. Thanks in advance
This is about the impeachment trial but it is not about whether or not Trump should be impeached or removed. This is about something I find deeply disturbing about the process and how it reflects upon our larger problem of polarization.
Nearly every question during this question and answer time has been Democrats asking the House team to bolster their case and Republicans asking the defense team to bolster its case. Most have been softball questions that were already answered previously. While I have not seen the whole thing, I have not seen a single instance of a senator asking a seriously tough question of the "other" side. This is insanity.
First, why do we need to hear endless repetitions of the same points? Second, if you really believe the other side has serious problems with their case, why not ask THEM seriously tough questions that you must believe exist? Why is there nothing like a cross examination here?
In a bigger picture this seems to go on in general. Republicans... keep reading on reddit ➡

The title says it all.
Second fastest coach to reach 900 in Division I softball history. Incredible accomplishment
Title says it all, I'm a Brit, 41, and in six weeks I'll be living in Sacramento - I'm into golf, softball, good booze and good food.
Locals, please tell me what I should hit up when I get to town - I'll have a lot of time on my hands for a few months!
So it looks like there's a massive slate of NCAA womens softball today being broadcast on ESPN. Does anyone know anything about this? I see that I can bet on it so I'm going to but would love to hear some insight first. LFG

Hi! I’m looking for a semi casual softball league in GR, ideally in the southeast near Kentwood/EGR area. I’m not sure if the Christian Athletic Complex is going to be open this year, and last year we played in a serious city league and we got blown out every game. Any ideas?
HOLY FUCK I CANT BELIEVE I DID IT BUT I DID!! I JOINED SOFTBALL! THIS HAS BEEN MY DREAM FOREVER!!! I've wanted to join a sport for so long, but my anxiety has always stopped me from doing that. Finally, I just said fuck it, why not? I almost changed my mind a few times, but I just went anyways. Anyways, it stressed me out a lot because the popular girls in my grade are in it and they kinda sneered at me when I walked in. But fuck it. There's nothing wrong with me wanting to try to get better at skills and join stuff. They probably hate me, but fuck it. I'm gonna be as much as a team player as I can and nobody's gonna stop me. I've waited far too long for this day to happen and I'm not gonna just let some girls ruin it for me! If they hate me, fine but I'm just so proud of myself for doing this. I hope that this will help me communicate better with people, too!
Looking to sign up for a softball league in the Astoria/LIC area, could be men's league or CO-ED...anyone have a good league they recommend?
