In this week’s Coaching Blog, out of our Baseball Coaching Academy, Bobby Valentine sits down with us to discuss a popular topic: managing expectations for your players!
Players that aren’t living up to your expectations? You have to get them pulling on the rope the same direction you are pulling on the rope. Sometimes a player may be underperforming because he’s not getting what he needs so he’s not giving what the others need.
What’s key then: make sure you understand what your players need. Finally, Valentine advises you take advantage of the technology around today and use things like slow-motion video so help your players improve their mechanics at the plate or on the mound.
Many thanks to Bobby for his time:
