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

"A common occurrence in 8-11 year old baseball.  So much going on, noise, runners, and the kid just freezes.  Good topic, Marty!"

In Youth Baseball Outfielders Who hold The Ball Too Long

  I've seen it happen in almost all sports even at the professional level. In hockey I've seen players holding the puck too long when they should either shoot at the net or pass the puck to another teammate. This happens a lot on power plays especially if the team has that rare two-man advantage. In basketball we see some point guards holding the ball too long when they should be trying to either penetrate the key or pass it off. Of course this will vary on each and every play. But when it is…See More

Cinder-Block DrillUsually I save this drill for kids older than t-ball. But this drill is a great backyard drill if you have the space. Take a 4" cinder block and lay it flat on the ground. Give your player one of those thick red plastic bats. Take a tennis ball and after you set up your player in a batter's stance, bounce the ball off the cinder block and move away quickly so you don't get hit with the bat. When the ball is on it's way down the player has to swing at the ball. This drill is…See More

Why Catch Everything With Two Hands

  I have been fortunate to have known a lot of coaches in all sports. I was attending a high school playoff basketball game that was going down to the wire. The coach I knew team was down by one point at the end of the game. With a few seconds left, one of the guards got some space and drove all the way down the left side of the basket and put in a lay-up with his right hand just out of the reach of two defenders. The team won the game. Later that week I ran into the coach and congratulated him…See More

A New T-Ball Drill Has Been Posted By Marty Schupak

Dive-Ball DrillThis is a drill that can be done as a team or individually in the backyard. All you really need is a patch of thick grass and a bucket of soft covered t-balls or tennis balls. The team is divided into two or three groups. The more lines the more repetitions the players will get. This will depend on how many assistant coaches or parents are available. 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 followed sports my whole life. I have been fortunate to witness in person or on television some of the most historical games played in the last fifty years. 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
