Hello to all.
I'm brand new. Been to 2 cage practices (basically practicing timing and stance) and 1 meeting discussing balks. Then had my first scrimmage today with several umpires. wow hah. I quickly discovered there is quite a bit more than I noticed playing in high school. Time to get to work. Lots to learn. Definitely enjoyed it though. Excited about learning more and getting comfortable both behind the plate and on the bases. So far the forum is great, enjoying reading all the topics! Hope everyone has a good season.

I'm in Wilson County.

Are there any threads, or does anyone know of a good place I could study basic two-man mechanics? Just the basic "who has what, when?" type guide. Thanks a lot.

Welcome to the site. At least you are in a good barbecue area, not like the western part. :) Go watch scrimages as often as possible and ask a million questions.
