  • Building a baseball player isn’t always exciting, so getting them to internally compete with themselves and the game has to be a priority.
  • We teach our upperclassmen to bring the next group along. The older kids job is to get the younger kids as educated as quickly as possible.
  • Its important for kids to ask questions.
  • #1 in building a better baseball player is getting them to love the game. They learn to love it so they can learn to love the work.
  • The first 10-15 minutes of our practices, the players are on their own. So they’re expected to have a plan each day on what they’re wanting to work on.
  • We almost never take traditional rounds of BP. Our guys are just up there to crush a baseball. Hit it where its pitched and run like crazy.
