    3 Minnesota teams have games at noon for C worlds. Yay for us?

    Had a team pick up an A player last night to play against us (which is fine), but I've never had a knuckle ball hit at me so hard in my life. Was glad that it was far enough in front of me that I could let it drop and not look like an *******.

    The two worst things in the outfield are knuckleballs and the super high pop ups.

    The pitcher for the Swing Kingz has made a couple real solid plays in the game they're playing right now.

    I think you're speaking of my little brother. I sent him some constructive criticisms via SnapChat messages.

    I hope they were along the lines of "throw strikes!"
    That was/is always my favorite piece of advice to receive.
    No ****, Sherlock? I thought the goal was to throw balls!!

    Some pitchers try nibbling or think they throw huge curveball....

    I updated my bump list cause Coors finished T-5 at Nationals and I've heard rumblings of Gull Dam trying to merge with a top team.

    Gull Dam had a solid team this season.

    Yeah it was a few guys. But they were solid.

    Maybe cause we played them in league and maybe they were missing guys, but I wasn’t impressed with gull dam.

    I leave my team out of it just like predictions, but compare our record and tourney finishes compared to A&B last year.

    It was pretty much throw strikes except I said, "Slow down and work on throwing strikes because you walk too many guys. Oh and throw a knuckle ball with your wrist flip spinner."

    What's a "jumping snag?" Jump or any form of the word have never been in my vocabulary.

    It sounds like a lot of work. That's what the middle infielder is for.

    What are you doing falling back into the hole where your middle guy is already standing? :D


    I re-painted my pitching helmet last weekend. It actually turned out a lot better than the last time I did it.

    Pretty sure I just watched Swing Kings put on a clinic on how to engage the opponents shortstop in a game. He averaged 2 put outs per inning, I think.

    Couple of their other fielders could have brought a lawn chair.

    What'd the dude do to get tossed? I did something else for 30 seconds and missed it.

    Their manager got ejected because someone dropped an f bomb next to the ump.

    Probably the worst place to drop an F bomb.

    Why do you send the runner when your down 10+ just when you start to rally?

    I love those! not.. I had one of those hit at me by a guy on precision last year in the Dudley.. only difference is it definitely made me look like an ass. All the guys on the 2nd base side and the dugout were cracking up.. we were down by 25 or more so it didn't matter at that point.

    I watched Ryan Harvey blow up a left fielder a couple years ago at the Dudley. He turned on one and hit a missile to left. The left fielder had time to take one step to his right and the ball hit him in the leg. It was insane.

    Ouch. At least it happened in a rout and not a close one.

    The worst part of missing those liners is the run to get it. I want to just keep going, like Forrest Gump.
