I do it, because an old ball coach I had always made me feel better after lose, when he said it. After a tough loss tonight, where I really coached my ass off, but we just made to many mistakes, it was hard to take the blame, but I did, as I always have. Very tough loss, one of the toughest ever tonight. Just like to have a place to share mental tactics and such to coaching youth baseball and advice. If the thread dies, thats cool, but if we can help each other by stealing of each other, maybe we get better and help feed the system with better players.

Certainly though, I prefer a relaxed, alert baseball player, as I prefer a hyped up, roid raged like football player. The team I coach is 12 year olds. This group of kids, doesn't handle criticism well. They are a group of boys, that have learned to never quit, which I take some credit for, and am proud of them for that. I have coached most of the boys for 6 years, and this is not a hand picked team. There are some players, that quite frankly, are very limited athletically. I have found, that taking the pressure off them, as much as possible results in better play. When they press, they tend to make mental mistakes, and will have innings where the wheels come off defensively. I also agree with the run, run, run. We run on the rirst pitch, and the batter is taking the pitch. I got tired of being doubled up on pop ups. I like the boom box batting practice routine before games. I will try and institute that for Saturday morning games. Time is an issue on weekday games, but I can see how that would benefit us.
