The coaches also sat down with all the players at the end of the season. They wanted summer schedules. They told each player what they needed to improve from that point to next season. There would be another meeting in the late fall to discuss physical training over the winter. After soph year the coach only told my son to return next year prepared to be the team stud. My son told me when he laughed the coach looked at him and said, "Do you think I'm kidding?"
This whole thread makes me nothing but jealous. I live in the Northeast and we still have 4 more weeks to wait out before our season starts.. then after that we have to wait out the snow before we can even get outside for practices.
There are numerous great baseball quotes. The best ever? "Play ball."
