One Fact Baseball Parents Must Know
If I were to advise all baseball parents what one piece of advice would help change their perspective, expectations and outlook the most?
What would be the top of the list guided counsel that baseball parents could receive that would help them approach youth baseball to gain the most enjoyment from it?
What one tidbit could be a game-changer?
What would change the baseball mom and dad's entire point of view of what youth baseball should look like?
Would This Be a GameChanger?I think every baseball parent would benefit greatly knowing there is about a 99% chance that his or her child will never ever play baseball in college or cash a check playing professionally.
This should be printed on a large banner right over the signup table. It might even need to be a signed disclaimer on the parent code of conduct letter.
What better advice could a baseball dad and mom have than to know going in that youth baseball is a short shelf life—We can just sit back and enjoy the youth sports experience.
There is really no need to get all uptight about the theatre and drama surrounding youth baseball.

MLB & USA Baseball New Pitching GuidelinesMLB and USA Baseball just came out with new recommendations for pitchers. They also state some the reasons that pitching injuries are up.
This is a must read for all folks in youth baseball today.
I remember Dr. Andrews, who was one of pioneers in the ‘Tommy John’ surgery, saying what he does to the parents when they come into his office with a young son with a sore arm.
He gives them a marker and a big white board on the wall and tells them to write everything their kid has done in baseball and all their accomplishments up to now. He leaves them and returns to a board full of the problem.
He tells the parents, “This is why you are here. Your kid has pitched and played too much baseball without proper rest and pitch limits.” The new guidelines should go a long way to prevent many arm injuries down the road. MLB & USA Baseball Pitching Guidelines
