Mike Greene replied to Sarah Bernier's discussion What age should players start practicing with a wood bat?
"Sarah, a great question. As soon as a player is able to swing wood without the bat path dropping, they are ready to swing wood all the time. All of our guys swing wood for batting practice starting about age 9 or 10 depending on size and upper body…"

Mike Greene commented on Bill Stanton's blog post rule violation?
"I'm sorry, but if that isn't one of the dumbest rules I have ever heard of, then I don't know what is. It ranks right up there with the two hour drop dead time limit I have to deal with during school ball season. Whether home or away,…"

Mike Greene commented on Grant Clifford's blog post Environment. Teammates. Winning. ??
"Grant, if developing and getting better aren't priorities, then why are the kids playing travel ball? Not to sound harsh, but if they are looking for social time there are a lot of ways to cover it without it costing parents a lot of money. If…"

Mike Greene replied to Jose M Hernandez's discussion Which Bat is best? in the group Hitting Coaches and Instructors
"Rod, Prima Donnas? Yep, I guess that is me. I'm not 100% in agreement with your daughter's definition of trolling, but whatever. I'm more of a "try to keep a conversation going without adding to it" explanation of trolling…"

Mike Greene replied to Jose M Hernandez's discussion Which Bat is best? in the group Hitting Coaches and Instructors
"OK Rod, I will bite one more time. First, yes the interest level in baseball does appear to be reduced at the youth level. In my opinion, a big issue is the overall cost issue of playing the game at a higher than rec level. With equipment costs…"

Mike Greene replied to Jose M Hernandez's discussion Which Bat is best? in the group Hitting Coaches and Instructors
"Bill, you might be right. I have been wrong before. I just remember a few long drawn out, road to no where back and forth posts in the past.  There's not much proprietary info in baseball anymore. Very few things haven't been tried,…"

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.
