I coach a sixth grade recreational boys baseball team in Overland Park, KS. This year, one of the kids I’ve coached for seven years simply would not stay in the box to swing the bat. He’d been hit by a pitch toward the end of the previous year and was terrified of being hit again.
He was also going through a tough time at home and at the time wanted to quit baseball. I was afraid that if he did, he would fill his time with activities that might get him into trouble. But I had no idea how to help him start swinging the bat so that he’d be able to enjoy baseball again.
When I found this resource, they immediately understood that baseball was simply the means to the end that I was trying to achieve, namely, to help this twelve year old develop into a young man who knew how to make good choices. Not only did they give me several good ideas about how to help him get over his fear of the ball, they also talked at length with me about how to help him get through this time in his life.
I put these ideas into practice and as I write this, he is over his fear of the baseball, recently got his first base hit, and is no longer talking about quitting baseball this year. He would not be where he is right now without the advice I got from here. Thanks so much to you guys for helping me to use baseball as a tool for shaping this great kid into the responsible young man I hope and think he will become.
From my experience, I want to reiterate how important Coaching Baseball Right is. During the games when we dads are coaching (leaning on the fence, moving around, etc), when our guys perform well or make errors they immediately glance over to see our reaction.
[For] Example, ground ball to shortstop (my son is playing shortstop), he bobbles the ball and makes a late throw and the runner is safe. When I was younger I would have negatively reacted in the dugout and a little later yelled out some encouragement to him. TOOOOOO LATE AND SHAME ON ME.
When the runner was called safe he had looked at me at that instant when I was reacting negatively ……………………… so I had lost him. Encouragement came too late because now he knows that is not my initial reaction.
I have learned that especially when kids made a bad play, I keep my eyes on them until they look at me and I give them the boost they need to make that play the next time……………………… when I was younger I was guilty, too many coaches need to pay attention to this……… it will go a long way in that kid making that play the next time.
