    Yikes my little guy pitches tomorrow . He's 9 , has been backcatcher for the first three games . Were 3- 0 , So dad thought ,I'll show him some pointers.
    He broke my new glasses on his second pitch to me . It was a strike ! Wish us luck , I'm kidda excited ,but know it's just a game . Soccer I know, baseball very very weird to me.

    Nah, expend all your excitement here and hopefully you'll be calm......er for the game.

    Just don't become one of those OTT parents that can make it nasty, fun for the kids is the most important thing.

    Congrats by the way, should be a great day.

    Oh I'm not a yeller. I help line the field and help rake after. But I have to coach first base too. And there lies my anxieties. What if I fuk up . Win or loose its ,if the kids have fun. I find at that age they don't even know the score unless you tell them . My wife Sabine has the easy job . She's doing consesion, what a wimp EH ?

    See, you're on to it already, you can't stuff up unless you lose your cool, which you aint gonna do. Relax and enjoy.

    My lil fella played his first game in the halftime of a major match a coupla weeks ago, he's no great player...... but those kids had such a good time, it was brilliant

    Listen just study the data your advance scout has collected, spend about 6 hours watching film of the other teams pitcher, chart tendancies and position your fielders appropriately.

    Discretely clock all the opposing batters as they run to first base. If they are fast leave the grass long and turn the bases into swamps.

    Just start with the basics this early in the season. You got your boy on "the juice" right.

    Oh shit, I spelt baseball wrong in my thread title . What a loser !


    Its funny what one will say on a forum , but not to friends or love ones. Its like the barber with bad breath . Its not my son I'm worried about ,its me coaching !

    woohoo! good luck peat & son

    I'm in my first year coaching Little League....
    so I got 12 kids, all ages 8-12
    actually, its 9-12, but a couple are 8 yr olds playing as 9 yr olds
    (yes, I got 12 kids....cuz I feel like teh father & mother half the time)

    going into our first game tomorrow

    and you got off easy coaching 1st base
    anything on the ground they run
    anything in the air, send em half way, if it drops, they take off to second
    if its caught, they go back to first
