Auction to support my sister's youth softball team...

Long and short of it is my sister is on a traveling youth softball team (12U) and they are raising money to travel to the premiere ASA tournaments for a berth in the Youth World Series. She is a pitcher, and pretty damn beastly for a 13 y/o... no doubt on her way scholarships in college.

They're auctioning off some cool shit, including an African Safari trip, expenses paid vacations, etc. Check it out... last day of the auctions and stuff is way below its actual value.

The pitchers do. She throws 60mph on a 60 foot mound. Major league baseball throws 90mph on a 90 foot mound. Ballspeed off the bat is so high, they literally cant react in time at the pitchers mound in some cases, thus the masks.

Close, your sister is probably 43 feet from home, at the start of the windup and closer to 35 feet when she releases the ball if that's her above... Fantastic release form by the way.... The base paths are 60'

Major league pitchers throw from 60'6". the base paths are 90'.

Sorry, I umpired for a number of years...

There you go, that's right. I just got the distances mixed up, and was referring to the bases not the mounds! She's awesome! I caught her once for some ball practice and my hand hurt for the rest of the week. That is a picture of her taken at once of the regional invitational tournaments

I used to pitch in baseball so I know about balls that come back at you.
