Tigerlillies great fall!
Tigerlillies 16U played a great game in the Thunder Elite fall ball league tourney today, losing to Thunder Elite '01 Green by a score of 2-0 to end fall play. The league was a great learning experience against quality competition every week. In our short time together, the girls have shown they are capable of competing at a high level when we put it all together. See everyone at speed and agility training at Leffew Fastpitch!

2017 Akron Zips camp
The schedule for the Akron Zips camp on Jan. 22 is posted as a pdf in the 'handouts' section of the website. Each team will play three games at Stiles Fieldhouse, spend some time in the batting cage, and receive a post-game evaluation. Parents must sign a waiver at the Zips site, if you haven't done so already:
It only takes a couple minutes. Just go to the Zips site, click to register a participant, write in your daughter's name and click on the oval next to your team name ... it's self explanatory from there.
Here's the link:
Get a good pitch to hit ....
Even the great Ted Williams only hit .230 on outside corner pitches at the knees .... but he was .400 on pitches belt high and down the middle.
Pay attention to this
"It's the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen."

Food for thought
"Hitting is timing. Pitching is upsetting timing."
