This week in coach’s corner we receive baseball insight from Dallas Baptist University’s head coach, Dan Heefner. Coach Heefner is entering his eighth season with the DBU Baseball Team and fifth season as the Patriots’ Head Coach. In his four years at the helm, he has had 23 players drafted and has reached an NCAA Regional twice including a Super Regional appearance in 2011.
A few months back I had the privilege of spending a week with coach Heefner and the Dallas Baptist baseball team in the Dominican Republic. They played some incredibly talented Dominican winter league teams and ran a different baseball camp almost every day for the local kids. Not only was I impressed with the on field talent level of DBU, but off the field they were a pleasure to be around.
We appreciate coach Heefner giving us a few minutes of his time while his team ran a great baseball camp at a local field in Boca Chica, Dominican Republic. In this nine minute interview we touch on, advice to high school ballplayers who want to play at DBU, how he defines a winning ballplayer (3:37), why perspective on life can make you a better ballplayer (5:31), the highlight of his Dominican trip (6:55), and more.
Next Level Ballplayer will be taking a team of high school players to the Dominican Republic June 18-24 to play baseball, receive top notch baseball instruction on both the physical and mental side, and even get some time to enjoy some of the nicest beaches in the world.
