Being a baseball coach or raising a baseball player requires a lot of moving parts. There are literally tens of thousands of books, drills, training tools, recruiting services, etc. It’s not that there is a lack of information…. there is simply too much! Below is a list of resources that I have curated through my discussions with some of the best minds in baseball. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.
Here is how we could help you:
They say hitting a baseball is the hardest thing to do in sports. Some of you might say that hitting a small ball into a small hole 300 yards away is a bit more challenging, a case can be made for both. I make this analogy because many fathers and coaches of young players golf in their free time. So the next time your player has a bad at bat, remember that time you put one in the bunker or in the drink, and think about if you would like someone telling you about what you should have done to avoid that in front of your foursome. PERSPECTIVE.
So, here is how you CAN support your player. Get a few or all of these resources and get to working! Keep in mind there are cost effective options for almost all of these resources (baseball arts and crafts). Click the link for a more in-depth look, The Five that Drive Hitting.
