I've got a local ex-minor leaguer that instructs in the area telling me basically that if you've never played pro ball and went through the drills you'll never know how to teach baseball. The way he put it was "All the books and videos along with the clinics and seminars aren't worth anything". I offered him some info on a particular drill that I thought would help him and he took it the wrong way. This is what started this discussion.
Am I wrong to say he is wrong?. Does that mean that no coach should be teaching baseball unless they've played pro ball because they dont know what they are doing? I am lost! Help me!
