"Todd Zeile (a friend) also suggested not moving them around.  Problem is, most kids don't have the discipline to stay put until they get older and are too antsy and impatient so they fail and lunge and get frustrated.  I'm most…"

Richard Lovell replied to Kelly Kleinman's discussion What happens when a player listens to his dad/coach? in the group Let's talk hitting Mechanics
"Hmmmm, overall a pretty good swing, I don't think I would advocate the phrase or cue "sweep your hips through" to a young player. To me, that sounds like you want the player to sway their hips through causing forward head movement…"

What happens when a Little Leaguer listens to his dad?

"Nice!  It's called clearing the front side.  If he is going to stand that close to the plate, he must absolutely "swing your hips through"."

What happens when a player listens to his dad/coach?

Kelly Kleinman replied to Kathy Tribout's discussion Travel Teams - Rankings?
"Scout teams are also valuable if your looking to get your son into a good network. Look around in your area and see what's available. Each major league team has these in various areas. We have Cubs, Cards and some others in Thousand Oaks, CA."

Kelly Kleinman commented on Terry Howarth's blog post New Little League Dropped 3rd Strike Rule
"We play Pony here in Ventura County (California) and we've been doing dropped 3rd strikes for a year and a half now (twins just turned 10).  It kills K's and is hard on a pitcher's arm especially when they throw a change up that…"
