My daughter loves softball!
Knowing which satta king to use is crucial because hitting is such a big part of the game.
My daughter was just named the best defensive player for the High School Sophomore Team.
This is because she is only in eighth grade.
As I have said to her many times, softball is a gift from God. She can give God a gift by playing the sport that glorifies Him.
It is crucial to choose the right softball bat when hitting. This was something I wasn’t always able to believe, as there are so many options for softball bats.
I was raised in the old school, where you simply picked the most suitable bat and tried your best.
This is no longer the case. The right softball bat can make a huge difference in how she performs. Her average has fluctuated as high as 150 points over a few games when she used the wrong softball bat.
Today’s bats can almost be customized to suit the needs of the hitter. Softball bats are available for both slow pitch and fastpitch softball.
My daughter plays fastpitch softball. You have never attempted to hit a girl’s fat pitch at 50-60 mph. It’s a lot more difficult than you might imagine. This helps to put the sport in perspective.
You can see her playing third base and pitching. You know what third base does when there are some hard hits.
She was hit with a ball this year, pushing her bottom five teeth so far that they cannot be straightened for six more months. She fell to the ground after being hit and then hit her fist with the ground. Her mouth was bleeding profusely and she went out to continue the inning.
She continued to spew blood and demanded she return in the next inning. Her dedication to the sport was amazing. It was a good thing she returned to the sport, as most people would have stopped playing and become afraid of the ball. It’s best to quit the sport once that happens. I’ve seen more girls being hit with a pitch ball and thrown onto the ground. They will then develop fear of the ball.
That was not what she wanted. She went back out and was just as aggressive as ever.
Talk about a proud dad. Of course, I was worried about her mouth. As she opened her mouth slowly, she only asked me if she had lost any teeth. I was afraid of what she might have seen. After cleaning up the blood, I said no.
She said, “I want to go back in!”
She is too beautiful to be denied!
Fastpitch softball bats: Which one is right for you?
Our case showed that my daughter could hold the softball bat on her hips, if it was on the ground and positioned on her knees, then it was right-sized. It was also important that she could hold the bat with her weak arm for between five to ten seconds, which indicated that it was the right weight.
This is not the correct way to size a softball baseball bat, but it works well.
It doesn’t matter how much you spend, as long as it is the right bat for your daughter. It will make all of the difference.
Next article will be about our trip to State finals. Here we were able to tell the difference between a composite and a regular bat. I hope you can tag along and share your experiences.
