First off, thanks to everyone who sent in their questions for coach Hayden.
We were not able to get to all of the questions that were sent in but don’t worry, we will do this for more interviews in the future, so keep your questions handy!
Today we bring in Miami University Head baseball coach and my good friend Danny Hayden to answer your questions.
Today’s questions range from how common is it to switch positions when players get to college? to What are the 3 main things you look for when recruiting catchers? to how to get recruited when you live in a different country? and much, much more.
Special thanks to Coach Hayden for taking the time to do this interview with us… And stay tuned til the end when we talk about my favorite Danny Hayden story (hint: only time I’ve seen a coach get mad at a player for hitting a grand slam!)
The Indians’ Trevor Bauer has been one of the top prospects in baseball leading up to spending the majority of the 2014 MLB season in the big leagues.
When I asked him about the biggest pitching lesson he learned that has helped him over the years, I was very surprised to hear who gave him this advice…
None other than Thomas Edison… yes the inventor credited with inventing the light bulb and the one who passed away in 1931.
What was this baseball life altering advice?
“Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.
Thomas A. Edison
Sorry that the volume in the video below isn’t great, but hopefully you get point that Bauer is making: Even if you’re not getting the opportunities you deserve right now, DON’T stop working hard so that you’re always ready and at your best.
