Saturday Secrets to Great Baseball Coaching "“
Many baseball coaches fall under one of these two scenariosand these coaching mistakes lead to a long season.
The under-coach tells players everything they know, or just learned at a coaching clinic, the first day of practice and then never really follows up with much coaching after that first day. They try to impress players with their knowledge but are not that interested in coaching much, just interested in playing games. This type coach is usually at the teenage and high school levels of baseball.
The over-coach never eases up, yells "what to do" during the action and constantly harps on the mistakes kids make, never satisfied with how they play. This may not seem like a terrible thing, but that type coach should only be at the highest level of sports. This type baseball coach is usually at the lower levels of baseball very gung ho but overbearing and impatient.
