            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

Practicing When No Field Is Available

How many times do we as coaches call for a practice, meet the team at the field, only to find one team practicing and one or more other teams waiting to practice? When I first started coaching, this always seemed to happen to me. Part of the reason was because our league at the time was in a little bit of administrative disarray and there would be a lot of misinformation about which fields we were allowed to use for practice. Part of it would be my fault, not really being creative or talking to…See More

T-Ball Tip :Baseball Creativity In Your Own Backyard

The sporting goods industry is a multi-billion dollar business, and the cost of equipment can be ridiculously expensive. Every family cannot afford the latest and greatest products (and gimmicks). But the old saying that 'the best things in life are free' can also hold true in sports. Before you go out and spend hundreds of dollars on a deluxe glove or equipment to help your kids learn a level swing, you should look around your house and see what you can create, cheaply, that will help your…See More

Baserunning, Baseball’s 10th Man:Get 1-2 Extra Runs Each Game!

        I have some great news for all youth baseball coaches who feel they have a weak team and still want to be competitive. Here it is. Baserunning. Hardly anyone practices this underrated skill. I started paying more attention to it within my first few years of coaching. When a rival coach in the minors (9-10 years old) was using some strategies that really threw me and our team off. I went to this coach’s next few games just to watch the way he coached his team. I started to use some of…See More

T-Ball Changes To Consider

  Good news for baseball fans! In the younger age groups there has been a slight uptick in baseball participation. Hopefully this will continue! Baseball is fortunate now to have two rookiesAaron Judge and Cody Bellinger who may become the face of Major League baseball. Everything adds up. Baseball has also been pushing their “Play Ball” program to try and increase participation. We’ve seen baseball lose players to lacrosse and soccer over the last decade. Until we see lacrosse players switch…See More

T-Ball Drill By Marty Schupak

Discussed already is the need to separate skills with young t-ballers in early season practices. It is better to have players throw without catching, catch without throwing. Here is an easy drill: On a fence make a line made out of blue painter’s tape. You can make the line long or short but the longer, the more kids can do the drill at once. The player(s) that are going to have a ball in their throwing hand about 20 feet (or shorter to start) from the fence. The coach will either yell “high”…See More

T-Ball Tip & T-Ball Drill of The Day

A big role in catching a flying baseball scientifically is something called ‘binocular vision’  which  some scientists think is not fully developed until age 7 or 8 in most kids.
