How to Be Different and Better

Baseball coaching tips of the day2 Pledges all sports coaches should make: * Vow to follow the “genius" inside of you.

It Starts with You, the Coach

Baseball coaching tips of the dayIt drives me nuts to hear a coach say, "They don't want to play," or "They don't want it" or "They don;t want to work." That's your job to create the excitement and environment so they want to be there. Remember:1. Attitude begins with the coaches.2. Before you can expect them to play well, you are responsible for teaching how.3. Emphasis should be on the process, not the scoreboard.4.…See More

Jack -- I just joined CheckSwing today. Great to see you on here. I fell in love with baseball with the help of the 1980s Mariners. Most notably, your former teammate and double play parnter Spike Owen. I still have a vidid memory of a '84 or '85 Mariners calendar I had with a picture of you fielding a ball at second in the beautiful Kingdome. Hope all is well with you.

Dave,
Same as I tell any ballplayer, Don't stop playing till you decide it is time - don't let others tell you to quit playing - if every player quit when others told them they were not good enough there would be a whole different set of major leaguers up there now. If pro ball doesn't happen at first, keep playing, go to tryouts whatever till you decide it is time to give up the dream. Best of luck

Hey Jack, got any advice for a college senior pitcher looking to go pro?
