This should get some interesting talk. I want you to understand I DO NOT have a child in any high school baseball program in the state of Texas. Our high school coach will not allow any player to make the high school baseball team unless the athlete can run a sub 6:00 mile. I am looking for feedback on that philosophy?
Why is running a sub 6:00 mile important to baseball coaches? Can it be said some baseball players are not distance runners and may help a program if they can hit/pitch? Is it smart to eliminate a kid from your program that may be a little slow but can throw the ball 90 miles per hour or hit for power/average? Thoughts please.
Also, same baseball coach told two parents (not me) that they are not instructors and DO NOT expect him to teach your child anything fundamental wise. This same coach went on to say "If you have a issue with your swing go get private instruction because we do not instruct".
Is this good or expected in AAAA or AAAAA baseball programs?
