Baseball Instruction Tips on Finding the Best Instructor
If you are dead set on becoming the
best baseball player possible, there is no substitute for quality baseball instructor. A quality instructor can save you time, remove bad habits, and get you
motivated to play your best ball ever.
searching for a good instructor, I would focus on three things (1) baseball experience, (2) individual coaching
experience and (3) reputation. For experience, you are
looking for someone who has been around baseball for a number of years as either a player or a coach.
Preferably you want someone with experience at the college
level or higher. If you are trying to become a better
pitcher, I would focus on someone with pitching experience. If it is hitting; then,
focus on someone with this type of experience. The focus
should be on whether you feel the person has enough experience to know what they are talking
individual coaching experience, you are looking for someone who has experience training people your age.
Ultimately, you want someone who is used to conveying his
baseball knowledge to an individual audience and has the patience to convey his teachings to
reputation, I would ask for references or ask around to other baseball players to see who they really liked
getting instruction from. This is important because if you
believe that your instructor wants you to succeed and has helped others, it will go along way towards your
acceptability of his teachings.
are having difficulty finding an appropriate instructor, contact local select baseball teams, adult baseball
teams, batting cage businesses, Baseball
Equipment stores or professional baseball teams. Any of these teams, should have coaches who are knowledgeable in these
areas or at least be able to point you in the right direction. If the high cost is an issue, check
instruction thru unconventional ways.
