Coach Paul commented on Bill Stanton's blog post Two coaches under investigation for allegedly hitting players with pitches
"If you want players to get experience getting hit by the pitch, have the pitching staff throw live BP ;-) Use tennis balls or wiffle balls to practice turning away from the inside pitch."

Coach Paul liked Coach Scott's discussion Youth pitching wear -n- tear. Pitch counts regarding fatigue vs recovery
Mar 22, 2016
Coach Paul replied to Coach Scott's discussion Youth pitching wear -n- tear. Pitch counts regarding fatigue vs recovery
"You can't really link pitches to Innings that simply because 40 pitch Innings exist and what about a pitcher who throws two consecutive 40 pitch Innings is that two days of rest? that's 85 pitches is probably more like 4 days and rest, so…"

Coach Paul replied to Coach Scott's discussion Youth pitching wear -n- tear. Pitch counts regarding fatigue vs recovery
"Coaches need to track every high-effort throw toward whatever pitch count you have set for a player. I believe counts should be determined by a pitcher's ability to display similar mechanics and results throughout an outing. I also believe that…"

"Win At All Costs" - 2016 Oregon State Baseball

"It's the perfect antidote to the current everyone gets a trophy malaise enveloping youth athletics. This is the other extreme, but if I have to pick one or the other, I choose this."

Coach Paul replied to Jose M Hernandez's discussion Which Bat is best? in the group Hitting Coaches and Instructors
"Bat charts are a good place to start, but it's best to try a few bats before purchasing. You want a bat that allows you to control the barrel through the zone and swing with enough speed. For youth players who may outgrow a bat quickly, it may…"

Coach Paul commented on Will Laurence's blog post Hitters: Quit Chopping Wood, Don't Go for Backspin
"I agree that you don't want to come down on the ball. That part is correct. A pitch that has a downward angle meeting up with a bat on an opposing downward angle needs high precision to intersect "squarely." The bat should be on plane…"

Coach Paul commented on Grant Clifford's blog post Look out umpires- the Robots are coming!
"Also, the system is meaningless if it doesn't adapt to each player’s upper and lower limit on each pitch. Dustin Pedroia 's strike zone should be smaller than Hanley Ramirez ' s zone."

Coach Paul commented on Grant Clifford's blog post Look out umpires- the Robots are coming!
"I think it should start at the 9-10 age group and follow them up to adulthood. Show us all what a 100% perfectly called strike zone does to the sport. Games would never get past the third inning."

Coach Paul replied to Ralph White's discussion Pitching and Catching in the same game
"I pitched and caught from the age of 9 up through HS and American Legion. I also played amateur baseball in my 20s, 30s and I'm getting ready for the over 50 league. I still throw +80 mph and I've never hurt my arm with the exception of a…"

Coach Paul replied to The CheckSwing Clubhouse's discussion What is the best way to run/structure a baseball practice? What works for you?
"The younger the kids, the more they can benefit from group drills. As they get older and begin to specialize, these groups need to get smaller and the practice needs to be tailored to specific deficiencies of the specialized group. The goal should…"

Coach Paul replied to RodChapman's discussion Swing Analysis with soft toss or tee compared to Live BP
"BP and soft toss should be thrown from a natural overhand arm slot from a standing position and not while sitting in a chair or on a bucket. The idea is to allow the hitter to pick up the ball from release - just like in a game situation. Also set…"

Who is your favorite hitter and why?
Derek Jeter because he could drive the ball hard to the opposite field. That helps an offense because runners can take extra bases on singles and it also leads to hitting doubles and triples into the RCF gap.
Who is your favorite pitcher and why?
Bruce Hurst because I pitched like a RH version of him. My all time favorite to watch was Pedro Martinez because we are about the same size and I always liked his competitive fire.
More About Me:
I enjoy working with as many teams as I can to help improve their total game. I will watch each player and determine strengths and weaknesses then determine a practice regimen that challenges them to keep resetting the bar, enhances their strengths, and continues to make them better overall.
