Let’s Begin With A Truth
Baseball is the most incorrectly-taught game in all of youth team sports.
Take the very basic baseball act of swinging a bat. Have you heard coaches tell your kid to swing level? Swing down? Swing up? All of the above? Which is correct? How would you know?
At Youth Baseball Edge, Rob Tong joins with today's most successful youth baseball coaches and experts to help give YOU the EDGE in your coaching journey to be the best coach you can be.

An Unexpected Question
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.
