Greetings from CoachDeck! In this issue:
We bring you the second half of New York Mets Hitting Coach Dave Hudgens' article on cues and techniques to help hitters and their coaches. Brian Gotta's "Win, or Be the Star?" examines what motivates kids to play sports and how coaches can keep them playing. And John Ellsworth's "Getting More Playing Time"
is a must-read for parents who feel their youngsters are not receiving as much time on the field as they deserve.
Here are two fantastic ideas we found on league websites, which you may wish to try. First, Orange (CA) LL has an awesome home run recognition page
that's very special. Next is Cheyenne (NV) LL's "My Positive Experience
" page, which allows coaches and parents to tell about great things they've seen or experienced.
