IS BASEBALL BORING FOR YOUNG PLAYERS?

by Tracy Cobb
(Reno, NV)

I have coached my son in T-ball, Rookie and this season’s Single A team. We play only 2 innings and each team went through their batting order once going station to station with no score and no outs. What is your suggestion on rotating the kids with only 2 innings so they don’t get bored? Being that they are young they tend to get distracted easily.

Thank you for your time!

COACH HENZE’S ANSWER

Thanks for the great question Tracy!

This is an issue with many young baseball players today. They want excitement when they play a sport. Sometimes in baseball, they tend to get bored because kids can’t throw strikes and nobody hits the ball on a regular basis. Lots of walks…

Tracy’s question opens up a topic that I would love to see answers on. Please share your thoughts by adding a comment below to this post on how we can make the game of baseball more appealing to our youth players.
