Ask the Pro: Need an expert opinion on baseball disusssion topics? Discusssion forum here for all baseball on this site blog to answer any questions that you have with regard to coaching and playing ball in the US and around the world. 

All related issues dealingwith amateur ball 

Whether you are a youth coach, t-ball coach, middle school or high school coach or any level. You might be a ball player with questions or issues or a parent with something on your mind.

Like, "Do I put my child in rec ball or travel ball? Is it better to focus on one sport or play multiple sports?

How much should my kid pitch? Great question! Pitchers should throw 2 or 3 innings per game. Great baseball coaches know how to create depth in the pitching roster by developing a pipeline of pitchers (4 per age year).

What should I do if I am coaching my own kid? My article on Coaching your own kid.

Should Kids specialize in one position or play several positions? You want players to be able to play several positions. Especially stay in the infield as long as possible and lefties always play first base, pitcher or outfield.

Are playing multliple sports ok or should players specialize in one sport? Play as many sports as possible. An athlete can play many sports well. Just sticking to one sport only does not guarantee a superior baseball player.

Skip- Came across your books & videos 2 years ago at the end of the season.

I implemented your techniques the next season and can't thank you enough. The kids love practice, we accomplish a lot, and most importantly they all develop throughout the season. I don't worry much if we win or lose just as long as we try and they get better.

My pitchers only throw fastballs and a change up and we do just fine. If the other team hits the ball, great it gives the defense an opportunity to make a play.

I never coach from the box, I just encourage them to hit. And they all know the have the green light on 3-0. The best thing I can do for them is make them better hitters and the only way is to hit! By the way my kids are Junior Little league ages 13-14. Zach, Stockton, CA...
