Young Players & Fly Balls, Try Progression Teaching

Started this discussion. Last reply by Pat Crofoot Sep 2, 2010. 2 Replies

            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

New Quick Tip By Marty Schupak and www.tballamerica.com

Quick Tip #23 Hit AnywhereWhen we talk about being creative, the Hit Anywhere Drill is one of the best and is a lot of fun putting together. Remember that t‒ball is hitting an object off of a prop in a still position. Nothing says that to practice you have to use a batting tee all the time. Here we are creating something to hit using a couple of cardboard…See More

New Quick Tip By T-Ball America & Marty Schupak

Quick Tip #22Block ItCoaches should teach players at the youngest age that blocking the ball and keeping it in front of them is just as important as catching the ball cleanly. In The Block It Drill, coaches can have a few stations with their assistant coaches and parents. The coach will roll balls to the player and he has to move from side to side between two…See More

"Miss The Tee Drill" By Marty Schupak & www.tballamerica.com A most effective drill

Miss The Tee Drill  A challenging exercise for young kids is for the coach or parent to tie a rope at the end of a bat or pole. The rope is then hung over the batting tee with room for a bat to pass between the tee and the end of the rope. The player must swing the bat without hitting the batting tee or the rope. As the player swings through the empty space, which promotes bat control and hand‒eye coordination, the coach will lower the rope, making the space even harder for the player to pass…See More

Wrong T-Ball Gloves

This article is written with permission from www.tballamerica.comPancake Gloves In T-Ball  In t-ball and even other divisions, I've seen kids come to their first practice with baseball gloves that would make the founders of baseball roll over in their graves. I cannot blame the parents totally on purchasing the wrong type of glove for their kids. In my area we are fortunate to have a very diverse population with many hard working…See More

T-Ball America's Marty Schupak has posted a new Quick Tip on hitting for 1st year t-ballers.

 Older youth players are involved in baseball mainly to hit the ball, unless they are 100% pitchers. In t-ball, once the kids experience hitting the baseball off the batting tee, many of them get hooked. Coaches have to remember that for many new players hitting off the batting tee will be their first experience. Let’s put them in a position to succeed. If you approach t‒ball like we are all ambassadors of baseball, it is in the sport’s best interest to have the youngest of the young experience…See More

T-Ball America & Marty Schupak has posted a "Quick Tip." Instructional cues can be effective!

Quick Tip #14  Instructional cues are keywords that can communicate a proper technique and do it quickly. Instructional cues are short phrases and sometimes can be comprised of one word. The beauty of these instructional cues are that young kids will absorb them. T-Ball can be considered “instructional cue heaven” for coaches and parents. When developing these instructional cues you should make them precise, short and action orientated. For instance when teaching throwing, the cue “step toward…See More

T-Ball America & Marty Schupak has posted a "Quick Tip." Put away the cell phones!

  I’ve already given some t-ball non-playing tips such as a team newsletter. Here’s something to try. A no cell phone day! I live outside New York City and frequent there a lot. I like many people are amazed with the cell phone craze and social media, texting etc. It has gotten out of hand. And in many cases rude. When I would be in New York City stopped at a red light, most people that looked to be under 30-years old would be looking at their phone or texting not lifting their head up while…See More
