Mike Greene replied to Bill Stanton's discussion Coaching the Bases
"Bill, it's just a personal thing but I always coach from the dugout. My 3B and 1B coaches need to be focused on doing that job and I try to focus on mine. I get too wrapped up in managing the game to be at 1B or 3B. "

Mike Greene replied to Bill Stanton's discussion Coaching the Bases
"Great topic Bill. I agree with David and Thomas on their points. The one biggest thing I would add is that these coaches need to really be paying attention to the other team's warm up work. How strong are the arms in the OF? Do they come up…"

Mike Greene commented on Kyle Nelson's blog post My Son Has Great Mechanics, but Can't Hit
"Thanks, how has your success been? I coach 11-16 year old teams and obviously we have strong hitters and then those that just can't figure out how a bat hits a ball!!! "

Mike Greene commented on Kyle Nelson's blog post My Son Has Great Mechanics, but Can't Hit
"SDavis, I just looked at their site and the product actually makes sense. Are you using the black or the white and do you know if there is a difference to the hitter. May be a dumb question, but I am almost thinking the white would blend with the…"

Mike Greene replied to Miguel Curi's discussion Left handed pitcher delivery question
"Miguel, I agree with Thomas. First step is to talk with the team's head coach and pitching coach to let them know that while you aren't questioning what they tell your son, you noticed a struggle in him throwing strikes with a slide step.…"

Who is your favorite hitter and why?
Hank Aaron - the all time greatest homerun hitter in baseball. Others have hit more with help, but nobody did it better than Hammerin' Hank. His focus at the plate, especially during the racially charged era he played during, is an example that every hitter should follow.
Who is your favorite pitcher and why?
Michael Roth is my favorite current pitcher. His attitude, approach to the game and focus have taken him a lot farther than most would have predicted. He is a true team leader and takes time to mentor the guys coming up behind him.
More About Me:
I coach baseball to help young people learn to love the game and to improve their skills. I don't coach for money, although I don't hold it against those that do. I coach for the enjoyment of helping others find success.
