Practice and Pre-game

By Jamie Joy, Manager of Operations

Baseball is a great game! When you get to the field the players head out to the field to loosen up. They usually stretch and then begin to warm up. Now even though this is done every day before practice and games it is a vital part of a player’s development. This is where they can develop bad habits, but it is also where they can hone their skills.

How many times have you been to a game only to see the kids playing fetch instead of catch? I also know that many times the players are talking about other things and aren’t really focusing on their skills. This is an easy way to become better at throwing and more skilled at catching.

I have included two videos from LittleLeagueCoach.org that will show you proper techniques.
