    Hi I’m the mom of a 12 year old boy, he’s played travel ball for years and several different positions. He recently tried out for a club team and did not make it, they stated that he needs to find one position and just play that. Is this accurate or is it better for him to learn multiple and be an all around player!!!

    Hi, I am a single mom with a 12 year old boy that soon will be 13. He plays on a travel ball team of the 13U. He is very small compare to the rest of the team. Most of them are about a foot taller than him. He is a left hand hitter and pitcher. During the games he is a backup runner for both pitcher/catcher. He has speed. He gets to bat in the last game one time. He plays in practice outfield and pitching. He has personal practice once a week for pitching. I am going to start watching some of these videos to see if they will help.. I don’t have a lot of money to buy a lot of them.. but I would like to see him more on the mound or more on the field.

    I’m a mother of a 12 year old daughter who has been playing baseball since she was 8 with the boys. She has been the only girl in our league for several seasons. Until last year when she was 1 of 4 girls. 😁 (was told it was because those girls saw her playing & wasn’t afraid) However though, in those 4 years she has had nothing but hassle from other boys & some coaches. Not wanting a girl to play either w/ them or against them in anyway. Which none of that has ever stopped her from playing. So I use every avenue I can to help her get better, stronger & faster w/o getting hurt. Her favorite position is catching & she pretty good at it too. By no means am I rich. My husband is active duty Marines & w/ 2 other older active kids. I do what I can for her. So I look forward to seeing all the teachings you can provide. (I’m not a pro myself, I have played baseball w/ my brother when I was younger. So I understand majority of it.)

    I love the sport of baseball, even though I was at best a mediocre player. My grandchildren love the game with my 9 yr old being on a youth traveling team. He took that lesson on breathing to heart, practiced and GameDay he didn’t have the problems ha had before. This was great as he has asthma bad. Thank you for your tips and in helping him to be a better player and individual.

    Love your content. I used to coach my son, but he is now on a travel team coached by ex-college players. It is a 14U team where the emphasis is on continued development. I love the program, but that does not mean that my son and I can’t still work on parts of the game on our own. Your site provides us with knowledge and insight. Thanks again.
