Teaching To "Back Up" In Baseball
It's winter time, so why not talk a little baseball.
Take a look at some helpful advice posted in this Baseball and Coaching Drills blog. The post discusses doing drills in lines of three where the secondary players in line for the drill help back up the primary player in the drill.
This helps show young players the need for backing up your teammates. As we all know, this is so important in baseball. It's particularly important to teach as kids often seem to think when they've accomplished their role in the play, their work is done. "The play" in baseball is never done.
