WYC 045 – Youth Baseball - Mark Linden from BaseballPositive.com talks practice planning and the pace that kids learn

Today’s guest is Mark Linden, the Director of Baseball Positive.  Mark has spent his life being involved in baseball – he played growing up, was drafted 3 times and spent 2 years in the minor leagues.  He has been a radio color commentator, and he coached eight seasons at the collegiate level.  

This lifetime of baseball experience, including the past seven years working exclusively at the 12U level with kids and their coaches, has led to the development of a comprehensive training and development program that is age appropriate and proven effective for kids, which has culminated with his work at Baseball Positive. 

One huge idea I took from Mark was in the 2nd quarter where he shares how he organizes his practices. Another huge idea was also in the 2nd quarter where he talks to parents who feel they might not know enough about a sport to coach it.   I hope you enjoy his insights and stories!
