    Coach them up on the art of the bunt.  Small ball will go a long way with that crew!

    We have good pitching and good base running with a few pretty heavy hitters so we usually compete with anybody we play.  That little shortstop is an awesome bunter.

  • Thanks everybody.  We won the 9 and under state championship last season so had to move up to 11 and under.  I told them to start the season we were just going to use this season to learn how to play playoff/pickoff baseball and adjust to the 50' mound and 70' bases.  They exceeded my expectations.  Couldn't be more proud of my team.

    Congratulations on adapting to the new environment and developing them into another winning team.  Enjoy the post-season.

  • Thanks @lousubcap I have really enjoyed coaching.  I have been helping my 8 year olds team, too.  They won second in district last night.  My 2 year old little boy already wants to play so looks like I'll be coaching until I'm an old man and I'll love every minute of it.

    Congrats!  What age group you in?  That kid is huge.  I coached my son and some friends for the last 3 years in machine pitch, but decided to hang it up this year since they are kid pitch now and I am no pitching coach.  My son is also competitive soccer in the fall and they start practicing soon for it.  Good luck with the rest of the season.

  • The one in the picture with me is my 10 year old son.  The biggest kid beside mine just turned 11 yesterday (the day we won) but he is classified as a 10 year old this year.  My entire team is 10 year olds except 2 9 year olds and one that turned 11 in january.  Our classification is 11 and under.  Our kid pitch starts with 9 and under.  I moved mine up as 8 year olds just to be ready for their 9 year old year and it really paid off because we won district and state and 3 other tournaments.

    Well mine play everything but I really only know baseball well enough to coach. My 7 year old is on an 8 year old team. They took 2nd in their district.
