16u pitcher launched a channel to help younger kids learn how to pitch. Needs your support and input.

Sirloindameaty ·
Hey Guys. Hope this is the right place to post this...I just read a previous post about how there are less kids signing up for baseball and some who are unsure of continuing in the sport. Well there are some kids who are out there trying to reverse that trend. One of them created a channel called Pitching Tutors on You tube. If you have a minute, go check out the content and give your feedback. Whether it's support or constructive criticism, any engagement of content creators will help to...

Re: Schools with odd-shaped fields/dimensions

RJM ·
This would be minor leagues and it's not dime signs. But it's definitely an oddity. Waconah Park in Pittsfield MA used to be a minor leagu field. I believe it's a FCNL field now. It's the oldest wooden baseball stadium structure in the country. My son's 13u travel team played a tournament there several years ago. The sun sets in left center. The hitter and catcher are blinded. It's the only place in the country baseball is stopped for a sunset delay. Go figure the team is called the...

Just a simple question ... Why would a kid listen to a sixteen year old versus a professional pitcher? Your heart is in the right place. I’m just not sure the effort will be effective.

I guess the simple answer is that younger pitchers can be more relatable to kids than a pro. Also, not many pros have a Free detailed program online that teaches kids how to go from t-ball to HS Varsity level. Possibly because pro's are either busy or want to be paid in some way for their time. Granted there is no revolutionary information being relayed. Most of the content is "best practices" type of stuff. But, Good information can come from anyone. A lot of the pitching instruction videos...

I agree with you -- good content is good content, regardless of the age or experience of the presenter. Certainly pro pitchers bring more credibility to the table, but they are not necessarily good coaches and communicators. I think the video you linked to is pretty good and I hope the kid keeps it up.

@JCG Thanks for the reply. I think that if kids took the time and effort to engage in positive projects like this, it should be encouraged. There are enough people already on the other side of the equation giving criticism. How many pro's are teaching online and opening themselves up for criticism?

It is really cool to see a young man trying to give back to the community and the game! Creating a YouTube channel for pitching will bring value to many who may not have the resources to secure professional instruction. Feedback for improvement: 1) Watch a few YouTube videos on Camera presence. He does a great job of showing enthusiasm, but some thought should go into the viewer's experience as well. Meaning, all the unnecessary movement takes away from the viewer's ability to focus on the...

@Scott Muroe Thanks for the feedback and the suggestions. I feel like your post is a good example of how forums like this should be used. Meaningful and constructive feedback is not always easy to come by on forums. Thank you! I'll pass the sentiment along. I think that collaboration with other programs may be a little ways down the road given time and age constraints.

You are welcome! Also, I agree the forum should be a place for feedback....how else can you learn if you do not ask for feedback? In defense of those who choose not to provide feedback, this forum has a couple of members on it that have ruined it for people like you and I apologize for that. There many good people on this site who have a wealth of knowledge that would love to help continue an up and coming player's success. You know who they are...just PM them with your questions. Just for...

Why can't a 16 year old be an effective coach? Who knows? I am certain my son could teach younger kids to pitch better than a lot of coaches out there. I do just want to put one thing out there. I live in Texas. If my HS son gives lessons, helps someone out with baseball or similar and gets paid for it, it is a UIL violation and if you play on a high school team all of the games can (and most likely will) be forfeited. It happened here a couple years ago. ...

@go44dad Thanks for the reply and heads up. At this time, the you-tube channel and all the content is free and he is not getting paid for anything. But that is a good point about the various rules around players getting paid. Thanks you!

I just took a quick glance at this from work with no audio. My observation may be useful from this different perspective. The video is 4:18 long. There are three short 5 second action clips (two of them being identical). The remaining 4+ minutes are video of a guy talking. I don't even know what the topic was but kids young and old require a much higher ratio of visual demonstration and less talk. Even if he was just talking about what he was going to be presenting in the future, still need...

Chairman I hope you had a great time in Welland. yes thyere are not enough good players to make 30 Elite teams that is probably true. I look at the program not how strong thye teams are. We produce some great talent here who go on to all levels of college and sign minor leagu contracts. My son wanted to play in the south,Florida or Vegas. That was our choice. The programs that he played in still provided the vehicle to get there. Hoe many guys get great scholarships of a video. The video had...

Re: Leadership in college baseball..what is it??

TW344 ·
The topic for discussion is LEADERSHIP. That intangible quality that most people think they have and very few actually have it. The US Army spent a great deal of time with me and my fellow ROTC grads during my "training" during the Vietnam war days trying to pin down that elusive quality for their future officers and leaders. I am not sure they ever did but I would be curious to know how those lectures and military games to "discover" the great leaders have changed. I would bet not very...

Re: Farragut HS moves to #2 in the Nation

Well, it makes one wonder how the voting is conducted. After a national runner-up finish in 2003, and finishing the 2004 season as the second-ranked team, the Admirals were placed at number 3 in the final Baseball America poll. http://www.baseballamerica.com/today/leagu...004final50.html The Admirals should still be proud, and know they have brought national recognition to Tennessee HS baseball in general, and East TN baseball in particular. I think another banner is needed in the Admiral...
