If you don’t know who this chick is, I’m sorry.
Well I would recommend the Louisville slugger Xenos. I like those bats a lot, they have great pop but they do break frequently. Also liked the demarinis & easton stealth. Any composite bat is pretty good (expensive but good) but I like the Xenos 😁
I have used demarinis & Xenos. Both are great but I think Xenos have better pop. I feel like the ball just jumps off the bat! But they do break a lot so be careful with that.
Actually I didn’t start taking lessons until 8th grade so your totally fine!! Yes you’re starting late but hell, if you put in the hard work and dedication anything is possible. If you truly have a passion for it, it’ll be easy to work hard to become better! But it is hard work. I’m talking practice everyday. But you can do it! You can literally do anything you want with your life so spend it doing something you’re passionate about.
Complete and utter bullshit. But it happens all the damn time. Don’t play for a Dad. Just don’t. Honestly.
Ps - glad to hear how modest you are about being the better innie stuck in the OF (calm down outies, I don’t mean to offend you - us innies just like our dirt.) way to be a team player 👏👏 but work your way back where you belong 😉
Best tip: CONFIDENCE 👌👌
You better walk on to that diamond like they are begging you to play for them, which they will be.
Sure, as long as you check out mine…

THE BEST WAY TO HELP YOU IS TO READ THE BOOK MIND GYM. READ IT. ANNOTATE IT (I did). EAT IT. BREATHE IT. SLEEP IT.
MIND GYM FTW
1. Tell your coach that you want to be number 1 and ask him/her exactly what you need to do to get there. It makes such an impression on coaches to come up to them like that, trust me.
2. Tell your pitching coach. Ask her what drills you should work on to increase speed and yada yada. She will know better than anyone. But if she doesn’t, try another pitching coach for a lil bit. Maybe a session or two. But getting another perspective on something during a slump is always a good thing.
3. Keep on keepin’ on.
Stay focused, don’t sike yourself out bc the mental aspect of the game is 10x harder than the physical part. Yes practice is very important but confidence is more important. But don’t beat yourself up over a few bad games. EVERYONE has bad days, it’s expected. So just keep on trying your hardest!
Use your legs!!! Push through your legs to help you throw harder.
I actually used to be a catcher! Study softball catchers, watch their position, framing, blocking etc. I took private hitting lessons which were the most helpful for me!
Hope I helped:)
