I get asked a lot what my opinion is of travel baseball, my thoughts on baseball parenting advice, and dealing w/ Bad Coaches. (Johnny Testosterone)
I think it's great if it's done the right way. If it's done by a coach and his staff that isn't"Johnny Testosterone Guy". In other words, a coach who cares about development instead of winning, period.
Parents, if you have a coach who yells at a 12-year-old or under, get away from him. He's not coaching them, he's humiliating them in front of his peers. (This goes for you too 😉
If they yell at an eight or under ballplayer, shame on that coach.
This is why players quit at 13 because of the pressure that's being put on them by "Johnny Testosterone Coach".
This causes tension, pressure, and anxiety for the player. Not a recipe for confidence. Rather, it's a recipe for underachievement.
