Posted by Lantz Wheeler on April 18, 2017 at 2:23pm 1 Comment

Tell me something please...

Why doesn't every pitching coach

Teach Movement, Not Mechanics?

  • Movements are natural, mechanics are not.
  • Movements can be FELT, mechanics cannot.

Posted by Marty Schupak on February 5, 2017 at 11:46am 0 Comments

Quick Tip #11

  When you start coaching your t-ball team, the gathering of information from your library, the internet and speaking to other coaches cannot be overlooked. Another source that I have used in my 25-year coaching career may surprise you. I have developed some of my most creative and popular drills from other sports.

Posted by Bill Stanton on December 30, 2016 at 8:30pm 2 Comments

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Let’s take a brief look at the personalities of the four coaches in the College Football Playoff.

There is Ohio State’s Urban Meyer, tortured genius.

There is Washington’s Chris Petersen, every bit as loose and jovial as Dick Cheney.

And then there is Dabo Swinney, little league baseball coach.

In a little more than a month, the head coach of the…
