Environment. Teammates. Winning. ??

Posted by Grant Clifford on May 6, 2016 at 1:34pm 8 Comments

Question for this esteemed group of baseball people:

My nephew is 12, almost 13. He's played on a travel team for the past few years that rarely wins. Great group of kids and families. They are all close friends. The coach is excellent.

Posted by CoachLisle.com on February 21, 2010 at 8:29pm 20 Comments

You’ve probably never thought about it before. Do I wear my glove wrong? Sounds like a stupid question.

For some people they like to keep their index finger outside of the glove and for some people they like to keep their index finger into the glove. That’s…
