MIDC should have take off once the ball left the pitcher's hand. Can you steal in that league?

Keeping the elbows up is a hitting myth.

He might be of some use to the Natties right about now, he could easily lead the team in batting average.

Great post, I am a sucker for baseball.

Evil E - I played baseball for 12 years and was pretty good at it. A batting coach told me to keep my elbows up; first pitch with my new stance got deposited over the left field fence.

I think I know what I am talking about.

How many years did you play?

I think RFB gets a lotta credit here. She took some great pics.

Obviously MiDC is as cute as a button.

Re: Elbow. Coach Charlie says keep the back elbow up, and Monkeyboy listens to people named "coach" a lot better than to people named "dad", so, cyber-advice notwithstanding, I think he'll be trying to keep that back elbow up no matter what any of us says.

He himself noticed it was positioned wrong in the pic before anyone mentioned it.

Re: Stealing. Stealing's permitted but the kid on 1st was daydreaming.

The kids have the attention span of 9-year-olds, but that's OK.

They're supposed to. They're nine-year-olds.

Re: Adults going back and forth about who's better qualified to give a 9-year-old hitting advice.

It is my sincere hope that, with the exception of one response from e-e (should he care to make one), this topic is now closed.

The kid on 2nd was daydreaming.
