Mike Greene replied to Mike's discussion Weightlifting
"Ted, it's got to be a joke. According to a search of the net, this guy played juco ball, a couple of years in the minors (never above A ball), never had an ERA under .388, maxed out at 72 innings and now wants to crown himself as the most…"

Mike Greene commented on Will Laurence's blog post At age 75, can Little League stay true to its roots as parents push for more?
"Bill, obviously I agree 100%. The security blanket that ESPN provides combined with the big profits that the local organizations take in is a nice security blanket. I have been a fan for several years of the USSSA organization when it comes to…"

Mike Greene commented on Will Laurence's blog post At age 75, can Little League stay true to its roots as parents push for more?
"Personally I think LL's entire problem is pretty clear in one statement from Mr. Keener: “Parents want what we’re offering,” Keener said. “They just don’t know where to find it. They want their kids to have an…"

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…"

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.
