Paige Tonz ,

Amazing resource and must listen!

I had the honor of being a guest on the podcast and it was an amazing experience. I love the insight and value Tory and Don are providing for the best community out there, the softball community. My favorite part about this podcast is the genuine conversation, tips, and passion for the sport of softball.

Thank you!!!

Love this podcast!!!

My husband found your podcast about a yr ago and we have learned so much information about this great game. We just started the travel ball world last June with our 12 yr old and it was a eye opening experience. The knowledge we have gained from your podcast is immeasurable and we look forward to the new podcast every week! Thank you for all you have done and continue to do for this wonderful game!!
