"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. "
"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…"
