Tips, advice, experience, and observations, for parents and coaches, to help get the most out of the youth baseball experience!
Episode details

This week’s podcast took a slightly different format. Instead of a specific topic, I answered five questions I’ve received from the Elbow Up community over the past couple of weeks. I’ll do this again next month, so hit reply and send me your questions!

I’ve included a list below of each topic and the time in the episode where you can find my answers and discussion. I spend between 2 and 5 minutes on each.

  • 1:59 - Making defensive substitutions when a player makes an error

  • 5:54 - Teams making noise while the other team delivers the pitch

  • 9:57 - Should batters take the first pitch?

  • 14:06 - How many players should you carry on your team?

  • 21:01 - My thoughts on playing up an age group

I appreciate everyone who participated in my last 3-question survey. It really helps developing content and direction for the newsletter.

Would you take 15 seconds and answer these 3 questions? It’s quick and anonymous. Thanks in advance for your help!

And if someone forwarded this to you, make sure and subscribe so you get the next one!
