One hour, two hours, three hours a day or more, ever wonder what the tipping point is for production with youth players?
Players work hard to make their high school teams, but once they're on the team practice becomes their biggest time commitment. Coaches in most states have a set number of hours a team may practice, but they have creative ways to get more time without the risk of trouble.
I talk about those things a bit in the video, but a few things to consider are: morning weights isn't practice time, PE baseball class isn't practice time, chalkboard sessions aren't practice time. As all that up and you may be spending 5 or more hours per day doing baseball activities.
The question then becomes, if a player spends all that time in team practice, when do they need at their position? The reality is, better players will have to make that time. If you want to be a great player you'll put in the team work and then also add the work to elevate your skills.
