LET’S BEGIN WITH A TRUTHBaseball is the most incorrectly-taught game in all of youth team sports.

AN UNEXPECTED QUESTIONWhy does so much youth baseball instruction focus on drills?
At first glance, this is an odd question. "Why not drills?" you might wonder. The problem is simple but often unrecognized: drills only focus on physical skills. Yet physical skills are only one piece of the coaching puzzle. There's strategy, managing the interconnected parts as a whole, handling the mental game, and more.
