Should I work out while in season?

You may already know this, but many of my blogs are inspired by some great questions that have been asked during lessons or via email. So keep those questions coming since they benefit everyone!!!! Recently, a parent asked about cross-training during the season. This is such a great question because we don't want to START [...]

Many of you may already know that my mother-in-law passed away early in March. It was something that I have since spent a lot of time reflecting on. It really got me thinking about the word, "Legacy." A legacy is something that is handed down from one generation to the next. I think that it [...]

Responsibility Versus Blame

Yes, I love the fact that many of my pitchers have won prestigious awards and have gone on to have successful collegiate careers.

I will admit it: I am a bit of a book worm.   To me, every problem that arises in life can be solved with a book or a class of some sort.  Right now, my house is practically overflowing with books from the library.  I find that I get as excited about going to [...]

I hope that this can save at least one life

Recently, the Long Island softball community was rocked by tragedy: a very young athlete on one of the local travel teams took her own life. This young athlete was not one of my students, but my heart broke just the same. I realize that this is not a topic that many people are comfortable discussing. [...]

Planning Your Time Off

I think that most of you realize that you need some time away from softball during the offseason to avoid overuse injuries and mental burnout. This break also provides an opportunity for you to reconnect with your family and friends since you probably haven't been seeing much of them except when they are driving you [...]

Fall is typically full of showcases, and colleges generally have information out about their winter camps and clinics this time of year. Finally, with the early signing period rapidly approaching, many [...]
