'Player Development Is the Winning Formula'

Youth Baseball coaching and playing developing players

The win-at-all-costs mentality in the modern game of youth baseball that is attributed to the adults has all but destroyed the focus of player development.

  • Around 75% of youth ballplayers are out of the game by age 14 mostly from lack of proper skills and poor talent level. 
  • My baseball coaching model brings the game back to the players and focuses on teaching fundamental skills, character building and enjoying the game.

LOVE your site and your philosophy. Wish you could be cloned and sent all around the country to coach youth baseball! :) Maria, momtalksbaseball.com.

With all the amatuer baseball now being played why are we not developing more quality baseball players?

What is Your Coaching Philosophy?

The lack of proper baseball coaching in youth ball is our problem so I am here to help show us how to coach and play baseball using the professional baseball development system as our template.

    Bob 'the Bull' Watson, the sensational former All-Star player, distinguished Yankees GM, and just retired from Major League Baseballs Commisioners office commented on...

    What he thought was Wrong with the game of Baseball

    He said, 'The two things wrong with baseball today are

    1. The strong emphasis on winning vs. the emphasis on player development of strong players at the youth level.

    and

    2. The lack of coaching at the youth level.'

It's Up to You to Fix Our Broken System

The Current Youth Baseball System is broken. It is upside down. It is top heavy on dominating volunteer coaches that mostly mean well but unknowingly are over coaching our youth players.

A generation of ballplayers have been scolded and ridiculed in the batters box to a point of no return. The dominating adults have over taken the youth baseball leagues driving players out of the game prematurely with their over emphasis of harping on mistakes rather than teaching and encouraging kids in the cause of the win-at-all-costs approach.

My Coaches Letter to Parents

I explain my philosophy and procedures to make it easier to be a baseball parent and baseball coach.

Dave Holt bio about me baseball consultant, instructor, coach and manager.

  • "Dave Holt is one of the best baseball minds I've ever been around. He does a great job of keeping things simple in an age where everyone is trying to complicate things.Having played and managed the game for years, Dave truly knows baseball inside and out. This book is evidence of that, covering everything from pitching mechanics to injury prevention to the mental side.Furthermore, it breaks down many of the things I look for in amateur pitchers as an Area Scout. Overall a great read for a parent or coach wanting the best for their players.
  • "KRIS GROSS: Midwest Area Scout for the St. Louis Cardinals

More Testimonials

“Dave Holt was hired to educate two of my sons on the fundamentals of baseball - hitting, catching, throwing, and pitching.

He had a mature professional approach in dealing with young adults, one that I find similar to that of a college full professor who has mastered the skills and techniques necessary to teach successfully.

I have also watched Dave teach and guide college level student athletes during his summer seasons with the Salinas Packers.

He did an outstanding professional job of running both the team and the business. I believe Dave to be a great educator and coach.” Eugene J. Guglielmo, Ph,D..

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...
