Pre-Season Checklist: As every spring rolls around, coaches across the country ready their teams for the upcoming season, optimistic about what is right around the corner! Pre-season practice usually begins with endless fungos hit, countless hours inside the cage and fly balls lifted to our outfielders as the pitchers gear up in the bullpen. As players begin to cross that line from rusty to ready, and opening day sits two weeks away, any coach worth his salt now begins to ponder, “What else do I need to do to make sure my team is ready when that first bell rings?” To view checklist, click here.
 
HS Coaches: As we do each pre-season, any head coach that wants to write a preview of his '17 team, DP will publish it. Very simple, just email outlook to us at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

dp logo1Do's and Do Not's for Parents: In my many years as a high school coach, I hear and can tell many stories on parents and what they say and do during their child's career. Enough stories to write a book that would take several days to read! Sometimes I like to think that 90 percent of what is said and done by parents is due to limited knowledge of a certain situation and/or how to handle situations. Unfortunately I know that while that is most often the case, things happen because a parent is just that, a parent. Fore more, click here.
