Concealed behind wrought iron garden gates

There are lots of ideas of a secret yard and lots of locations that assert to have them, from quiet London squares to the more well-known “visitor attractions”.
garden gate
On a domestic level, it could describe a small back garden with a rustic arbor close old vine or an ultra modern den surrounded by tree ferns for a home worker. However the enduring picture of a secret garden, to me at least, is the description in Frances Hodgson Burnett’s book of an old ivy-covered door with which can be glimpsed an overgrown increased garden.

When he first sees it, the kid Dickon describes it “as if a body was in a dream”. Whatever the design, size and shape, all secret gardens need to perhaps make us feel, similar to Dickon and young Mary Lennox in the book, that something wonderful has actually occurred when you enter this space; that you are “shut out of the world in some fairy location”.

No 2 yard designers would probably agree on exactly what makes a garden so secret. Some will certainly state it is surprises and others will have the tendency to the standard idea of an enclosed personal area.

Caroline Knight, a designer with Perfect Plants (perfectplants. co. uk) based in Herstmonceux, East Sussex, says: “The nature of a secret garden is its privacy, or a minimum of its illusion of seclusion. There are few of us who are lucky sufficient to have a walled garden which may make sure seclusion however we can recreate the experience of seclusion by the smart use of plants.”.

Caroline recommends that creating yard departments with such hedging as hornbeam (Carpinus betulus) or, even better, the evergreen yew (Taxus baccata), as was done at Sissinghurst.

She adds: “Include an intelligently overlapping entry space which will be undetectable from a distance and your secret yard on the far side is yours to create how you want.”.

Secret definitely has nothing to do with size. Caroline states: “Even small yards have prospective for secrecy. Tuck a bench seat on the limit and use tall growing such as decorative yards or flowering perennials to conceal it from view. A few stepping stones will certainly be the only idea about the presence of a tiny secret yard offering an undisturbed read.”.

The RHS is running a series of Secret Garden Sundays at its London HQ Lindley Hall, in Vincent Square. Next Sunday will certainly be dedicated to coastal plants and designs. A Secret Garden Christmas Unique will be hung on November 2.

how to buy a softball glove

Today’s softball gloves feature softer leather, and are more broken-in, than in times past. It’s still important to know how to choose a good one, though.

Step 1
Try gloves on. Avoid buying them through mail order unless you know exactly the model you want.
Step 2

Be prepared to pay between $50 and $150. Buying cheaper gloves is not recommended, as the quality is much lower and they’ll wear out quickly.
Step 3

Be prepared to buy more than one glove.
Step 4

Select gloves depending on the position you play. Infielders have smaller gloves, while those for outfielders are bigger.
Step 5

Buy a specialty glove for each position you play. A catcher’s mitt and pitcher’s glove (lighter weight with a solid ribbing in the back) round out the choices.
Step 6

Ask a knowledgeable salesperson, coach or other expert for help.
Step 7

Care for your glove properly. Make sure it’s oiled but not overly so.
Step 8

Follow the manufacturer’s directions for caring for your glove.

how to play catcher in softball

Before signing up for this position, remember that there’s a reason a catcher wears so much equipment. There’s nothing quite like being on the receiving end of a pitch and having bats swung about your head. But for the dedicated folk, this can be a position with a lot of action and responsibility.

Wear the correct safety equipment. This should include body pads, a face mask and a helmet. The catcher’s mitt is a different kind of glove, with more padding. You’ll need it as the balls come hurling in.
Step 2

Squat behind home plate with your weight on the balls of your feet. Put your left foot slightly ahead of the right, then round your back and chin toward your chest. “Catchers need to be able to move laterally, quickly,” says Ray VanderMay, women’s softball coach at Seton Hall University.
Step 3

Bring your glove up to catch the pitch, keeping your throwing hand in a fist behind the glove to avoid injury.
Step 4

Set a target for the pitcher with your glove. You should be able to reach anywhere in the strike zone with your arm. If the ball is out of the strike zone, you’ll have to move to catch it.
Step 5

Catch the ball when it is pitched. If you can’t catch it, at least block it. Any runners on base will be able advance while you are trying to get things under control.
Step 6

Throw the ball back to the pitcher accurately – again to keep the base runners where they belong.
Step 7

Watch for the batter’s weaknesses and let the pitcher know where to put the ball.
Step 8

Throw off your mask when trying to catch a fly ball at home plate. You’ll be able to see the ball a lot better and avoid head injuries when it comes back to earth.
Step 9

Cover home plate when someone is running in to score – catch the ball and tag the runner out. Hold on tight – players often slide into the catcher to try and dislodge the ball.

how to catch a softball

Do you find yourself rooting from the dugout instead of playing? Being able to catch the ball in softball is a skill that can help get you on the field. And though the glove will help you, it won’t do the whole job on its own.

Step 1
Remember that catching the ball is mostly about glove placement. Line up the glove and your body with the ball, placing the pocket of the glove toward the ball.
Step 2

Turn the fingers of the glove up, in line with the throwing shoulder, if the ball is above your waist. Place your throwing hand to the side and behind the glove so that you can fish the ball out quickly and throw it into play.
Step 3

Catch a fly ball, ideally, on your throwing-hand side. Point your fingers toward the sky, with your palm facing the ball. Extend your arm, keeping it bent slightly with the elbow down. A common mistake when catching a fly ball is to lift the elbow.
Step 4

Turn the fingers of the glove down if the ball is below your waist. Place the glove in front of you, between your legs, with your throwing hand to the side and behind the glove. When the ball is cruising along the ground, catch it in front of you, not under you.
Step 5

Remember to bend your elbows when you put the glove out to meet the ball. This will absorb the impact so that it doesn’t hit the glove and bounce out.

a guide to slowpitch softball rules

The main softball rules are very simple and easy to understand. Softball rules are even easier to understand if you have any experience of baseball rules or rounders rules. Softball is a sport where you can happily play by just understanding the basic rules. The Lions (or Dave to be precise) have created this complete list of softball rules!


Softball Rules #1: The Basic Game
The game

Slowpitch Softball is played by two teams of ten players each. The teams take it in turns to bat and field. The batting team is called the OFFENSIVE team and the fielding team is called the DEFENSIVE team.

Most Slowpitch Softball is played by mixed teams, where men and women play together in a 5:5 ratio. Slowpitch is sometimes played by single-sex teams as well.

The basics of Softball are very simple. A PITCHER pitches the ball to a BATTER who hits it and runs around as many bases as possible before the ball is retrieved and returned under control by the defensive team.

The aim of the game is to score more RUNS than the opposition and a run is scored when a player on the batting team advances around all three bases and back to the home base (called HOME PLATE) from whence he started. Unless you hit the ball so far that you can run around all the bases before it’s returned (a HOME RUN), you’ll probably have to stop at one or more bases on your way around and wait for the next batter to hit the ball so you can advance further.
Meanwhile, the defensive team is trying to get batters and base runners OUT. As soon as three players on the offensive team have made outs, the two teams switch: The defensive team comes in to bat and the batting team goes out to the field to defend. An inning is completed when each team has batted, and a full game consists of seven innings.

Players bat in a prearranged order (in mixed games men and women bat alternately). After the last batter in the order has hit, the first batter comes up again. If the final out in an inning is made by, say, the fourth batter in the order, then the fifth batter will be the first to hit when the team comes in to bat again. Batters keep their place in the batting order even if they were out last time they batted.
Softball Rules #2: The Playing Area

A Softball playing area is contained within a 90-degree angle, and is usually called a DIAMOND, because the central part of the playing field – the INFIELD – is diamond-shaped. The OUTFIELD extends outward from the infield to a boundary, either actual or notional. From above, the playing area looks like the illustration. A team in the field

The light green area is known as FAIR TERRITORY and is where most of the action takes place. The dark green area is called FOUL TERRITORY, where some action can take place. Everything beyond this is called DEAD BALL TERRITORY because if this ball goes into this area, all action stops. As a basic rule, the batter must hit the ball into fair territory.

You will often hear people referring to LEFT FIELD, CENTRE FIELD and RIGHT FIELD. These terms mean exactly what they say. Left field is that part of the outfield which is to the left as you look at the field diagram; centre field is the outfield area behind second base; and right field is the outfield area to the right on the diagram.

Play begins when the pitcher (1) standing on the PITCHER’S PLATE, tries to pitch the ball across HOME PLATE, a five-sided piece of heavy rubber, guarded by the batter, 50 feet away. Each BASE (First Base, Second Base and Third Base) is marked by a foam filled bag. For safety reasons, FIRST BASE often consists of a double sized base.

Softball Rules #3: The Defensive Team

The job of the defensive team, known as FIELDERS, is to catch or stop any balls hit, with the aim of preventing offensive players from advancing around the bases and scoring runs. Each fielder has specific duties and a specific number, used for score-keeping:

* PITCHER (1): The pitcher pitches the ball to the batter from the pitcher’s plate.
* CATCHER (2): The catcher kneels or squats behind home plate.
* FIRST BASE (3): This is often a busy position, as many balls will be thrown to first base in an attempt to put batters out who are running from home to first.
* SECOND BASE (4): The second base player will guard much of the right side of the infield.
* THIRD BASE (5): The third base player guards the area near third base.
* SHORT STOP (6): The short stop stands between second and third base and tries to stop or catch any ball hit towards left field.


Outfield positions are not quite so rigidly defined as infield positions. In general, however, the LEFT FIELDER (7) will play in left field. The LEFT CENTRE FIELDER (8) will play to the left of the centre field area. The RIGHT CENTRE FIELDER (9) will play to the right of the centre field area. The RIGHT FIELDER (10) will play in right field. The outfielder’s job is to catch or stop balls hit in their direction and return them quickly and accurately to the infield.
Softball Rules #4: Pitching

In Slowpitch Softball, the ball is lobbed underarm and must have an arc which reaches at least six feet and no more than twelve feet from the ground. For a moment, let’s ignore the main object of the game, which is for the batter to hit the ball. Suppose he doesn’t? What happens then?

Strikes and Balls
Between 6 and 12 feet

A pitched ball will be described (by the umpire) as either a STRIKE or a BALL. Basically, a strike is a good pitch and a ball is a bad one.


* Must be pitched from the pitching plate.
* Must have an arc of between 6 and 12 feet from the ground.
* Must not, in the opinion of the umpire, be too fast.
* Must pass between the height of the batter’s knees and back shoulder as he stands at home plate in a normal batting stance.
* Must pass across some part of the Strike Zone.

Some definitions:
The strike zone

* THE STRIKE ZONE is an imaginary three-dimensional column of space corresponding to the shape of home plate. A ball passing through ANY part of this zone is called a strike.
* A STRIKE is a pitched ball which fulfils all of the above conditions. In all other cases, the pitch is a BALL, unless the batter swings at it.
* A STRIKE OUT occurs if three strikes are called against the batter and the batter hasn’t managed to hit the ball into Fair Territory.

A STRIKE is called if:

* a pitch is good and the batter fails to swing, or swings and misses, or swings and hits the ball into Foul Territory (without it being caught) or into Dead Ball Territory
* a pitch is bad (would be deemed a BALL) but the batter swings and misses it

A WALK occurs if:

* A pitcher pitches four BALLS – bad pitches which the batter makes no attempt to hit. In this case the batter will walk to first base.

Softball Rules #5: Batting

Hitting A right-handed batter will stand to the right side of home plate (from the pitcher’s point of view) and a left-handed batter to the left of home plate. Once a batter hits the ball into fair territory, he/she advances counter-clockwise around the bases. If and when you hit the ball into Fair Territory, you must run. You have no choice. You must drop the bat down and run as fast as possible to first base (and on to further bases if you think you can make them safely). Remember that you must touch every base with your foot as you run past it, and when you decide to stop at a base (apart from first base and home plate), you must stop on it, not run past it.

A ball is considered to be FAIR if:

* it lands in the outfield (i.e. in Fair Territory), and then rolls foul.
* it is hit into Foul Territory, but then rolls into Fair Territory before it passes first or third base.
* it hits either first or third base, no matter where it goes afterwards!

A ball is considered to be FOUL if:

* it is hit into the infield (i.e. in Fair Territory) but then rolls foul before it passes first or third base.
* it is hit into Foul Territory outside the infield and then rolls into Fair Territory.

NOTE: A ball touched by a fielder standing in fair territory is FAIR, a ball touched by a fielder in foul territory is FOUL.
Softball Rules #6: Running the Bases

Once you’ve hit the ball you’re forced to run. If you are forced to run to a base, if any defensive player is holding the ball and touches that base with any part of his body, or the ball itself, before you get there, you are OUT. (we’ll explain when you’re forced to run and when you’re not in a moment).
As a base runner you are never safe until you are touching a base. If at any point you are touched with the ball (whether in or out of the glove) by a fielder and you are not safely in contact with a base, you are out. This is called a TAG.

Now we’ll look more closely at when base runners are forced to run and when they’re not, and what fielders have to do in these situations to put runners out:
Force Outs

A batter who hit’s the ball into fair territory is forced to run to first. Let’s suppose that you have made it to first base safely and now the next batter comes up to bat. Remember that you can only advance to second base or beyond if the next batter hits the ball or receives a walk.

However, if the next batter hits the ball into Fair Territory without it being caught in the air, you are forced to run towards second base because the batter-runner is coming to occupy first base and no more than one runner per base is allowed. In any situation where you as a base runner are forced to advance, the defensive team can put you out simply by throwing the ball to a player standing on the base to which you’re advancing. This is called a FORCE OUT (or Force Play). No tag is necessary, although the fielder can choose to tag you while you’re between bases if he wishes.
A force out on first

Let’s suppose that you’re a base runner on first and the next batter hits a ground ball to the short stop. You are forced to run to second, the batter-runner is forced to run to first, and the defensive team has a choice of two possible FORCE OUTS: you or the batter-runner. If they’re feeling ambitious and there are less than two outs, they can go for both of you. If they’re successful, this is called a DOUBLE PLAY. Typically, the short stop would throw the ball to the second base-player standing on second (that puts you out) and the second base-player would throw immediately on to first base. If the throw reaches the first base-player before the batter-runner reaches the base, they too would be out!

Force plays can apply at any base. For example, if there are base runners on all three base’s (this is called BASES LOADED), then all the runners are forced to run on the next hit that isn’t caught in the air, and the fielders could get a FORCE OUT at any base – including home plate.
Tag Outs

You have probably already grasped the point that fielders must TAG OUT runners who are not forced to run; simply standing on the base with the ball won’t do. Say you are the first batter in the inning and you hit a DOUBLE (a hit that allows you get to second base). When the next batter hits the ball and runs toward first, you don’t have to advance if you don’t want to, because no one is coming to occupy your base. if you do choose to head for third, you are UNFORCED and to put you out, a fielder must tag you with the ball in hand or glove before you reach your target base. in fact, you can turn around and run back to the base you came from if that seems a wiser choice; no one is coming to occupy that base and it’s still yours!
Catch Outs (ball is caught in the air)
An outfield catch

Suppose you’re on first base with less than two out and the next batter hits the ball in the air towards an outfielder (this is called a FLY BALL, or, if it’s hit on a low, hard trajectory, a LINE DRIVE). Well, as soon as the outfielder catches the ball before it hits the ground (and the laws of physics tell you this will happen within seconds), then the batter is out – at which point you’re no longer forced to run to second, since there’s no batter-runner coming to occupy first. The force is off.

Instead, you can choose whether to advance to second or not and so the defensive team can’t get you out with a Force Play. They can only get you out by tagging you with the ball: a TAG OUT or Tag Play. That’s why, if the ball is hit in the air towards a fielder when you’re a forced runner, you shouldn’t automatically take off for the next base, because the catch might be made and the force removed.

AND HERE’S THE KEY POINT: you cannot advance to the next base on a caught fly ball unless your foot is in contact with the base you’re already occupying when the catch is made, or afterwards. This is called TAGGING UP. You must tag up before you can advance after a caught fly ball. Why? it’s a rule!

Remember that we said you can overrun first base (or home), but not second and third, where you can be tagged out if you’re not in contact with the base. But running hard and then stopping dead on a small base isn’t easy! One way to do this is to slide the last few feet into the base along the ground, so that you come to rest on or in contact with the base with minimal loss of momentum. Another reason to slide is that you will present a smaller and more difficult target for the defensive player who might be waiting to tag you.

northern lights womens softball league

Northern Lights Women’s Softball League is a member of the Amateur Sports Alliance of North America.
The Northern Lights Women’s Softball League was created by women, for women, and is governed by women. We were founded in four basic principles:

1. Women committed to and promoting softball.

2. To provide lesbians an opportunity to play softball in a comfortable, friendly, and safe environment.

3. To provide networking for lifelong friendships.

4. To enhance lesbian pride and commitment through the support of other lesbians.

Northern Lights Women’s Softball League is open to ALL women – regardless of age, ability or sexual preference.
