Roswell Thunder in Ruidoso

Looks like the girls had a good time at the Queen of the Mountain tournament.

Just click the first photo below to go to the beginning of our Flickr album.  I try to get as many shots of the girls as I can but it’s a little hard to get good photos of the outfield… sorry.

I think you can download any of the photos you want if you follow us on Flickr, – I think…

 

 

There are more photos that what you see below.  Just click on any shot to see that image in the album.

Clinic Opportunity

Attention softball fans… There is a great opportunity to get your player a little clinic time. Below is a flier for a clinic coming up in just a few days, (April 29th, 2018).

Clarification:
– The poster does say RGSA but the Roswell Girls Softball Association is only connected in the fact that the event is taking place at the Charlie McVay Softball Complex. Well, that and the hope that plenty of our league players participate.
– Also, per information from the RGSA Board, Diane Hasty’s player clinic will be working with pitchers and catchers.
– Local coach Gilbert Lucero will be working with fielders.
– As of right now, there is no plan to do any batting at this clinic.

  • Proceeds from the fielding clinic to benefit Ms Stixx travel team.

Revised 6U Rules and 8U Reminders

Coaches, the following are the revisions for the 6U Rules.  The full document has been updated and is available here: 6U Rules or at the bar above under R.G.S.A. at 6U Rules.

 

6u rule revisions:

“.. Tee will be used for the rest of year..

2. Once the tee is being used the batter will have one swing to put the ball in play.

A) If the batter swings and misses the Batter is Out.

B) If the batter hits majority of the Tee the batter will be Out! We know there will be some contact with the tee so this is a “Judgement Call” and Will Not Be discussed with the umpire.

C) If the batter hits the ball foul they will have another opportunity to put the ball in play

3. When any fielder attempts to throw the ball to The Pitcher (pitcher has to be in circle) the play will be called dead! The runner will be awarded bases according to where the runners and The Lead runner is.”

 

8u reminders:

“1. We need to make sure only 2 coach’s are allowed in the outfield on Defense

2. 2 coach’s on the bases on offense.

Coach’s outside the dugouts along the wall are not allowed. We do not need them scrambling around trying to get out of the way of any over throws.”

Come’on coaches, you know better.

Two Helmets in One Day

With a double header today and some strong hits there was only one outcome. Two more Slugger helmets would be earned today.

Jayla got her helmet with three singles and two RBIs in the first game.

Sahniyah earned her green helmet during the second game with a line drive triple.

Good job Sluggers.

We’ve updated our Slugger Batting Stats page, so you can follow along with how well the ladies in lime are doing at the plate.

Daddy and Me practice

We had or first Daddy and Me practice and it went extremely well.  It wasn’t just dads though.

Daddy and me practice

We also had brothers, uncles and grandfathers on the field, and that’s awesome.  It’s that kind of family involvement that makes this all work.

Our first helmet has been earned

Abi, our youngest slugger, is our first player of the season to earn a green helmet for her batting.  Abi had a great triple in our last game and also earned an RBI on that hit.  That’s how a slugger gets a helmet.  It’s not just about a hard hit.  It’s about a hit that makes a big difference in the game.

Abi

As our season continues you will start to see a lot more green helmets on the field.  The Sluggers will keep getting better with the bat and keep earning helmets but for now Abi is the only one.  Not bad for a 6 year old.

Good job kid.

Checkout the stats on the Sluggers Batting Stats page.
