Mike Greene replied to Grant Clifford's discussion Soft Toss? in the group Let's talk hitting Mechanics
"Kip, apparently I missed something in the original post. We don't side toss, we soft toss. I agree that side toss sucks as a teaching tool. Soft toss on the other hand gets the ball in motion after tee work while allowing hitters to still focus…"

Mike Greene replied to Grant Clifford's discussion Soft Toss? in the group Let's talk hitting Mechanics
"Totally disagree. We use soft toss after tee work at every practice and the benefit is still strong for us. Approaching hitting in the natural progression (tee work, soft toss, point to point, short cage work (30') to live hitting) not only…"

Mike Greene commented on Kyle Nelson's blog post Are you working on hitting or are you just working on your swing?

Mike Greene replied to Bill Stanton's discussion "Playing Up"?
"Bill, our situation isn't so much the competition level as it is the base distances. School ball is done on 60/90 fields so we have to prepare guys for those distances. We played this Summer with our 11/12 year olds at the 13U level to get them…"

Mike Greene replied to Bill Stanton's discussion "Playing Up"?
"Playing up can be done for several reasons. Our guys (12-13 year olds) play up in the Fall season to prepare for the school season, which is the most important season for us. Typically we will play 14&U because of field size and bats. At…"

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.
