    2020 youth sports what are leagues doing

    My son’s hockey org (South Windsor CT) just had its first Covid related game cancellation from another league (Norwich CT).

    Disappearance of the Fastball

    I know this is a common thought for younger players, but does throwing breaking stuff put more strain on an MLB caliber pitcher's arm? Has throwing fastballs been part of trying to extend/lengthen careers?

    Did MLB’s first four base error happen today?

    It’s different because Canseco never got his glove on the ball that hit him.

    2020 youth sports what are leagues doing

    Part of me wants to, but I think my wife is on the other side of things and I know my son is really looking forward to it. It feels kinda like I would be punishing my son. We'll see how it plays out. I sent our board an alternate option that involves not having an cross traffic in the timing...

    2020 youth sports what are leagues doing

    I'm not terribly thrilled with my youth hockey association's plans to start the season. I'm in CT and we're still in Phase 2 which limits indoor sport activities to 25 people or 50% capacity, whichever is lower, but has a caveat that limit can be exceeded to accommodate 1 parent/guardian per...

    Tuuka Rask stinks (literally)

    I hardly think that's a "turkey" sandwich at that point.

    Worst Coach Stories

    This was the message we got at the beginning of last years hockey season. CHC basically begging us not to yell at refs due to so many leaving and so many being new/inexperienced that we cannot afford to chase any more off. I coached U10 this past year and I was very disappointed in the...

    Madison Bumgarner has had a secret rodeo identity for many years

    The story mentions that the picture was from before he signed his newest contract. Whether he's still doing it or not, who knows.

    Madison Bumgarner has had a secret rodeo identity for many years

    I'd be somewhat surprised if MadBum's contract doesnt prohibit this side hustle.

    February NHL News

    Isnt a "late" hit essentially "dirty" though? If you agree that there probably should have been a penalty, then you admit it was wrong. If you're taking the angle that it wasnt overtly malicious or intending to do harm to call it "not dirty", then that's just a matter of some grey area as to...

    MLB’s sign-stealing controversy broadens: Sources say the Red Sox used video replay room illegally in 2018

    Would jawbone, or bone conduction earphones be a better option to a traditional earpiece? They can be integrated into the band of baseball style hats.

    Coaching Attention Challenged Kids

    This is a great thread an I'm glad it got started and has had so many responses. I coach U10 hockey and 4 of the 11 kids on my roster are medicated for some reason or another so I find myself struggling with this during practices and games. I've found myself going through the same motions as...

    Practice time usage: to scrimmage or not? Whadda say?

    Very interesting topic for me. I got tagged to be the head coach for my son's hockey team this year. It's the C level team at the Squirt level, so I'm going to have the returning Squirts that still need a good amount of basic fundamentals work as well as the Mites coming up to play full ice...

    Baseball Is Broken (on the field, proposed rule changes, attendance, etc.)

    So if this were more stringently enforced, do you think there would be potential for the catcher to delay things if he felt his pitcher/team/etc needed a few more moments? Adjusting equipment before throwing it back, inspecting ball and unnecessarily asking for a new one, standing up to relay...

    NHL Eastern Conference Semis

    Mrazek listed as "day to day" and "good news". He skated off without appearances of severe injury/discomfort/etc. His backup seemed competent enough, and was certainly tested plenty. I thought he was a bit less standard on his angles and positioning, but it could just be a style difference...
