Hitting a Birthday Homerun

Posted on May 12, 2010 at 5:16am 0 Comments

First let me say I am not the greatest story book tellar. But, I would like to share alittle tell of Hitting a Birthday Homerun. I was 20 year old at the time in 1995 expecting my first child. My wife laid in labor for 36 hours and on July 16th 1995 my wife had to have a emergecy C-Section because my son was turned head up and was losing oxygen. Needless to say they got him out just in time.This was our first child and at 20 year old I was estactic,scared,excited, and had many mixed… Continue

Hey Dice, once you play vintage you'd wonder why you haven't been playing this earlier.

There's plenty of Vintage Base Ball clubs in Ohio. Most of them play the 1860s underhand delivery. I think you would get a kick out of the 1880s era game. Fast pitch and no glove from 55 feet away.

Merry Christmas!

I have played with and against the Dice Man...I can tell you that he remembers that this a kid's game, and he has fun playing ball! And yeah...he has been known to hit the long ball from time to time! He is also a top competitor in Fantasy Football, though neither one of us had a good year this year!

Dice,
There are several keys to control. I believe you have to put yourself into an athletic position on the rubber from the start. Another key for me without getting too detailed is to be able to repeat the good pitches and have feel for them. Try to feel that same release point. Picking up the catchers target and throwing "through it" instead of "too it" has also been helpful. The idea of getting the hitter out with quality pitches early in the count is beneficial as well. To sum it up, sometimes I use a key word with our guys such as "ICE" Intent: You must have an intention to throw each pitch whether for a ball or strike elevated or down. Up/down.. in/out hard/soft. 2: You must commit to the pitch. 3: Execute the pitch. Generally control is a mind set, I believe, if one is wild he/she is trying to do too much with the ball, manipulate, sink,cut etc. Good balance over the rubber with good hand separation, stride direction, length with a good sound repeatable finish. Strike one. Go get em'
