The coach had to work with what he had. When the girls on the team don't want to be there and are quite frankly scared of the ball it is hard to coach them.
He would be teaching them how to bring the bat around with their hips versus their arms while I would be working with the other coach on pulling the ball to the opposite field to conteract the shift.
They would work on catching flyballs, I would work on target practice.
How is it fair to them to be playing with a player who is heads above them? I heard a lot of "God do we suck, look at her play." I tried to explain that I started playing ball as soon as I could walk. I played T-ball when I was three. It was better for them and for me when I switched leagues.
