Some softball players think pitchers aren't important in slowpitch softball, because you can't do much finessing with a pitch that floats in to the batter at fifteen miles per hour.
This show offers some tips on how to be more than just a pitching machine.
My book, Coaching and Managing Adult Slowpitch Softball, is available here.

Twelve years ago, I came very close to getting a class ring back to its owner. A month ago, I began anew to try to find the girl who lost it 23 years ago. I struck out with Classmates, and now I've stepped up my quest with five new attacks. Enjoy the latest episode of "How Hard Can It Be To Get Rid of a Gold Ring?"
And if you enjoy the podcasts, read my book, The Metal Detecting Manual

Your team needs a pitcher - fast. What do you do?
This show gives you some shortcuts on finding the player on your team who is most likely to be trainable as a pitcher.
It also shows you how to build a backyard pitching frame - for under two dollars - that will help your pitcher learn to throw accurate 12-foot-high strikes.
Here's the website with photos and detailed instructions for making and setting up your pitching frame: http://danhughesbooks.com/backyardpitching.htm
And here's the spiffy ad for my softball book: http://softballmanual.com.
Even if you're not interested in the book, the page has links to several free softball articles. Check them out!

There was a discussion in one of the treasure forums recently about the feasibility of making a living with your metal detector by becoming a full time treasure hunter. Think of it! No alarm clocks, no early-morning commutes to the office, no suits and ties, no office politics, no boss! Can it really be done? In this program I examine the possibilities.
I've written a book on treasure hunting called The Metal Detecting Manual. It's for sale here
