There was no higher level for me to play at with the girls unless I wanted to drive almost 2 hours. It was embarassing for some of the other girls on the team when I would play. I would throw the ball to second base only to have the girl duck. One of the pitchers asked me to throw it back to her underhand. We never caught anyone stealing because my second baseman or shortstop wouldn't catch the ball thrown. How is one player playing a position like catcher supposed to carry the team?
Now is it selfish for an athlete like Adam Van Koeverdan to go train in another country because the level of compeition in Canada lesser than what he is?
Then that is a problem with your coach. If he can't teach a pitcher to catch a ball, then they shouldn't be coach.
