Pitch Calling Gone Wild

Pitch Calling Gone Wild

Reagan Wease Update: Some outstanding news has occured and a praise report is due! Reagan Wease, the 17-month old daughter of Chesnee head coach Scott Wease, has been given a clear bill of health. After a large cancerous tumor was removed on March 12 and chemotherapy was around the corner, the family has received news that she is miraculously cancer free! The family is deeply grateful for the prayers that were made on her behalf as she has recovered very well from surgery and the recent scare. DP sincerely thanks those that kept this little girl and her family close to their heart over the past couple of weeks. Further proof that prayer does make a difference!

dp logo1DP Player Rankings-How they are built: Each time we publish our player rankings in the various classes, we are sure to come under fire from those of you who enjoy visiting our site. Many of our viewers are prep players and their parents, easily the most critical of the names they see, the names they don't see and, of course, the order that they are ranked in...which we can understand and appreciate! For much more, click here.

Coaches, Players, Parents, Humans: Our staff wants to cover as many games as we can in 2015...But to pull off that feat, we must know where the games are, teams playing, time, etc... Please assist DP and college coaches by taking 15 minutes to plug in your spring schedule, and coaches, when dates get closer, plugging in your starting pitcher is highly helpful too. Help us help you and to promote HS baseball!

dp_logo1.pngPre-Game Pet Peeves: Everybody has their own style and thoughts on how to best take a round of pre-game infield/outfield, myself included. After making a living watching high school baseball, I’ve seen my share of pre-games, good and bad. Not to say that I have it all figured out, but I can safely say that too many coaches are living in the Dark Ages. For more, click here.

dp_logo1.pngDo's and Do Not's for Parents: In my many years as a high school coach, I hear and can tell many stories on parents and what they say and do during their child's career. Enough stories to write a book that would take several days to read! Sometimes I like to think that 90 percent of what is said and done by parents is due to limited knowledge of a certain situation and/or how to handle situations. Unfortunately I know that while that is most often the case, things happen because a parent is just that, a parent. Fore more, click here.
