You may have never played the sport before, but I’m here to tell you it’s one of the most exciting, addictive sports to watch! This post may contain affiliate links.

Whether you have a son who plays the game or you just enjoy watching it on TV, you know what a baseball mullet is. Not the fish- the haircut. While big in the 80s and 90s, it’s still quite popular with young athletes, particularly baseball and lacrosse players. As the parent of a son who has sported a baseball mullet for many seasons, I often wonder what the appeal is. I am well aware that a middle aged woman is not the target audience for such haircuts, but why is a mullet so appealing? Luckily my young athlete was eager to talk about anything related to his “athlete rizz” or “baseball drip ..read more

For baseball and softball fanatics (you know who you are), the pitching mound is more than just a patch of dirt. It’s the focal point- for better or worse- of the game. Countless young athletes- mine included- see themselves on that elevated platform throwing curveballs, sliders, and strikeouts. But all of that precision requires practice, and practice requires trips to the field or batting/ pitching cages. What if you could have that practice anywhere, anytime right in your backyard?

After years of watching my daughter sprint up and down the soccer field, I began to wonder how many miles her little legs ran in a game. I found it difficult to measure with all the sprints and long runs down the field, but I guessed it was a mile or so. Nope. Google confirmed that my guess was way too low.

As someone who has run a marathon, I can understand and appreciate the stamina required to cover so m ..read more
