Baseball Coaching Digest - Quick Tips from Coach Nick

Just wanted to offer 3 simple tip that may payoff for you one day.

(1) Write the names of the umpires in the palm of you hand. Throughout the game refer to them by name as Mr...... or Ms...... rather than BLUE. Sometimes this can break the ice of tension or open a better line of communication.

(2) Scout your own team. Keep pitch sequences down when your pitching is working to see if you have become too predictable. Use this information to "mix" up your sequence to keep the opposing batters guessing.

(3) Sometimes against great hitting teams, you may have to pitch them "backwards". This means that you go away from normal logical pitch selections. You may not do this to the whole team, but rather to their most dangerous hitters. You would throw curveballs and change-ups on normal fastball counts and fastballs on nromal off-speed counts.

Have a great day.
