Youth coaches teaching baseball cannot fool the pros.
Top baseball people can show up at a ball game and instantly know if coaching skills display evidence that there any knowledgable proof of teaching baseball going on.
One can just look at the little things like how the players get on and off the field. How do the players conduct themselves around the dugout and between innings transitioning during the pitcher and catcher warm-ups.
Youth baseball coaches are not expected to be experts by any means. You can have an edge though if you do pick up on the little things that real baseball people know.
When you are mentoring baseball coaching tips keep in mind how teams and players in higher levels of baseball do things. The professional baseball players are taught how to play baseball the right way. The pro coaches know how to manage their players and know how to build confidence.
There are many little teaching baseball items you want to be able to share with your ballclub. Many of these baseball tidbits and tips are invisable for a youth baseball coach unless you are told about them.
Holding runners on second base: As soon as I see the shortstop or secondbaseman standing on 2B holding on the runner I know we have a problem.
We have baseball coaches that need to wake up a bit. Have you ever seen a major league infielder stand on 2B holding on the runner? Then why do we teach baseball and have them stand on 2B holding on the runner?
Don't you see the 'hole' we are leaving in the infield?
I see the same thing with the thirdbaseman standing on 3B while the pitcher is pitching. The only player who hold the runner on is the firstbaseman---and when the pitcher pitches you should shuffle off the bag and get in position to be a fielder.
You will find dozens and dozens of helpful ways to pass on knowledge of the game of baseball. Nobody expects youth baseball coaches to be experts. You can do a little homework and give your players a few tidbits here and there to help them along for sure.
These are a few dynamic baseball coaching tips for players at any age. Start them in t-ball. Continue the teaching process instructing baseball tips into little league baseball, travel baseball, pony leagues, Babe Ruth Leagues and high school baseball.
A professional baseball person can smell a baseball coach that has been around a mile away. Teach your youth baseball players the right way to play the game. Teach them Stuff all players should know.
