Best youth baseball coaching? In this part II page of the Ideal Youth Baseball League I continue talking about ideas for the baseball world.
Kyle Nelson from Cornerstone Coaching Academy put together a survey of baseball people in his circle of influence. After gathering and collecting all the responses to everyone’s ideas to build the ideal youth baseball coaching system Kyle shared with us his findings.
Many of the most common threads were put into a bullet point list. The first half of the list and my comments were listed here at Ideal Baseball League.
The second half of Kyle’s list of suggestions I will elaborate on here. Many of the suggestions on Kyle’s list are right on the money as far as mimicking my thinking and beliefs.
Here is the rest of the list from Kyle Nelson’s ideal baseball league survey and best youth baseball coaching practices.
Make Pick-up games & Sandlot Ball a Part of the Process
Hire independent evaluators to pick travel teams.
Utilize local high school baseball coaches and college coaches.
Every player takes a turn in the outfield.
Follow pitch count rules determined by ASMI recommendations.
Start baseball players with wood bats.
Many of the best youth baseball coaching points I discuss involve limiting the baseball parent/coaches involvement in the whole process.
Parents’ taking a back seat is what I call it. I think many of the ills in youth baseball stem from the adult ownership in the outcomes of the games. To most of the adults, winning games is all the matters.
If we find ways to diminish the adult ownership in winning and losing and let them just provide support and encouragement I think we have a healthier, happier, more productive youth sports experience.
Best youth baseball coaching…way deeper than winning & losing.

|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...
