            One of the best ways to turn young players off baseball is to stick them in the outfield, hit fly balls,  a player gets hit in the head, hurts himself, and never picks up a glove again. I…Continue

The coach will call out the first player who stands about 10-15 feet from the coach facing him.The coach takes a ball from the…See More

Youth Coaches Must Go Over Teaching Players "Obstruction"

I have always thought it almost amazing when a hit, basketball shot, or long pass in football occurs that the officials or umpires are able to watch the game away from where the ball, hit or action is occurring. In youth sports many times the officials who are not as experienced as the professionals on television will be watching…See More

I decided to take…
