The game of baseball is a lot like the game of life. You have to work hard every day, and the only way to enjoy yourself is to change your perspective on things. A player/athlete can be happy doing anything, whether it be extremely difficult, or extremely easy, It is all in the way you look at it. You have to try and teach your athletes that they do not HAVE to go to practice. They do not HAVE to wake up at 6 a.m. to go work out. They do not HAVE to take 200 swings in the cage. They GET to. It is my job as a coach to teach these students of the game not only to be better baseball players, but to be better people. I will teach them to give it their all, with a smile on their face. Teach them to be comfortable, being uncomfortable. I believe it is my job to prepare these athletes for a life after baseball as well as life while you are on the field. I know I can use my knowledge and experience to help kids become the greatest players they can be. I strive, day in and day out, to mold them into the best kids, students, sons, brothers, and people, they can become.
