College baseball's longest-tenure coaches say entitlement is problem
In case you haven't noticed, society has done a 180 in the last few decades.
The "we" generation switched over to the "me" generation quite a while ago. If the picture of Rosie the Riveter came out today, chances are the caption wouldn't say "We Can Do It"…

We are really excited about this week's giveaway.
"The Pitcher's Pocket 9 hole net (NOT just for pitchers) is a really unique baseball net, and is my favorite baseball gear discovery for this year. The pockets are a really unique way of giving immediate feedback about throwing accuracy, a critical skill for any player on the baseball field. It’s also incredibly stable,… Continue

I love and appreciate great coaches in all sports and at all levels. I love to make notes of coaches who think outside the box and take chances. I remember years ago the baseball manager, Billy Martin, put a game under protest because the pitcher took one extra pitch to warm-up between innings. He was probably the only one in the ballpark who was counting. I remember when they first instituted the rule in Major League baseball that forbid pitchers going to their mouth in a game, the penalty… Continue

Hey Gang. Killing two birds with one stone here. The first bird regards the NCAA's decision to lower the seams on their game ball with the purpose of increasing offense ( see NCAA Flat Seam Ball on Checkswing). I found this ESPN article in the past week indicating offense was down the past season, the lowest since 1981.
Personally, I don't think baseball needs more… Continue

Youth Sports were Perfect Once?
Almost daily, an article about how messed up youth sports are shows up in the news. I agree that problems need addressing, but there is danger in turning parents off to youth sports with such writing. Additionally, many of the articles suggest that the environment was once pristine. Come On?
I feel sorry for kids of today, when I grew up youth sports were perfect. No problems existed, and fun was the norm. If what I read of many youth… Continue

I am fortunate to go around the country each year running a youth baseball coach’s clinic. A small part of my 90-minute presentation covers the importance of running a parents meeting prior to each season. Whenever I follow-up with the organization on how they liked the clinic, I always get the same response. The coaches and parents wanted less time spent on the parents meeting and dealing with parent issues during the season and more time on things like first and third offensive… Continue

I guess I'm not alone in this feeling....
MESA, Ariz. -- In assessing the talents of center fielder Dexter Fowler, Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon likes the versatility that Fowler brings from his days as a high school talent who turned down a chance to play basketball at Harvard.
"I love cross pollination when it comes to athletes," Maddon said. "You get guys who just did not play baseball, meaning they've… Continue

23 Ways Youth Baseball Has Changed From When We Grew Up.
By Jason Romano
1. We had Fundamentals. Why? Because we practiced more than we played.
2. We had Fun. Umpire said play ball. "We Played".
3. We had metal bats. Not aluminum, not air craft material. Just a metal green Easton.
4. We used the same glove for years...and loved it.
5. We carried our equipment bags. Nowadays it looks like these kids are getting on a plane. Rolling bat… Continue
