Hey what’s up guys, hope everyone is having a great week.
If you are a fan of long home runs, you are automatically a fan of the White Sox’s Adam Dunn.
Dunn is in his 14th big league seasons and has 443 (and counting!) home runs to his name.
Despite being one of MLB’s most feared home run hitters in the last 15 years, Dunn is a very down to earth and nice guy.
He was more than willing to spend some time with Next Level Ballplayer to talk about the importance of having fun while playing a game of failure, why “hitting mechanics” are a scary thing, and his best advice to ballplayers who want to make it to the next level.
Special thanks to Adam Dunn for hanging out with NLB… enjoy this insight from one of the top power hitters in the game.
Like everything else, being a great infielder takes hard work and dedication.
It goes beyond having good hands and good feet. You have to take pride in your defense and have an aggressive mindset.
These are just a few points that Penn State head baseball coach, Rob Cooper, touches on in our interview.
The video is less than 3 minutes long, but is packed with great insight for infielders.
Coach Cooper breaks down what infielders can do to stand out on the field, the hardest adjustments for infielders transitioning from HS to College baseball (HS infielders need to start working on this one tip right now!) and the most common infielding mistake he sees.
Today we are joined by Columbia Head Baseball Coach Boretti to talk catching.
Coach Boretti was a big time catcher himself at Davidson College where he eventually was inducted into their athletic Hall of Fame.
After a little bit of time in the Indians organization he began his coaching career before taking over as head coach at Columbia in 2005.
Catching is clearly a passion for Coach Boretti, and I appreciate him giving us a few minutes of his time to break down what he looks for when evaluating catchers, what “receiving the ball well” means to him, and more
Many thanks to Coach Boretti for sharing his helpful insight.
