"Rod, the first thing to do is take the focus off winning and put it where it belongs at that age, HAVING FUN. Until kids get to school ball around age 13, there is no real reason to focus a lot of effort on the overall outcome of games. I know…"

Mike Greene commented on The CheckSwing Clubhouse's group Youth Baseball Coaches
"Rod, I've coached for a few years (plus decades) and I don't remember ever hearing a player or parent say that they didn't think they could hit HS pitching. Ya'll must be raising some flame throwers over there. Send a couple our…"

"So Michael, did you skip items 1 - 8? Sorry, not looking to bust any chops or bubbles. I don't know about your area, but in ours most leagues just focus on numbers not talent. This approach causes it's own problems, but we won't go…"

Mike Greene commented on The CheckSwing Clubhouse's group Youth Baseball Coaches
"WOW, how many different opinions can there be on the subject? Why not just go to the local high school and talk to kids that played at younger ages but have given the game up? If you do, you will find answers that vary by young person and they…"

Baseball Coaching Experience:

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.
