Welcome to My-Youth-Baseball.com. The original goal of this site was to give youth baseball enthusiasts (coaches, players, parents and fans) a place to find easy-to-understand information about the game of baseball. Today, that is still my goal but the site has grown bigger than once imagined. The site now has thousands of unique visitors per month and has opened up a new online store to sell products that I recommend.
Please enjoy the site, ask questions, read coaching tips, interact with other visitors and simply have some fun. Don't forget to sign up for my Newsletter E-Zine and receive your free baseball lineup rotation template (great tool for youth coaches!).
Have a good day!
PS - Be sure to check out the new store below.

Baseball Is Awesome!
Do you love sitting at a baseball diamond on a nice day? I certainly love that, especially when I am coaching youth players that play for one reason... To have FUN!
As a longtime baseball coach and player, I would like to offer my experiences to assist you in making the game of baseball fun and simple. The way the game should be!
The game of baseball can teach us many things in life. It teaches us that everyone fails and that you have to continue picking yourself up. While coaching youth ball players or playing the game, you are gaining character, desire, determination, and a good attitude that will carry over into life skills.
Coaching a baseball team and/or simply giving instruction to youth players is a pretty important job. From the first day of practice, your players will watch you, listen to you and even start emulating you on the baseball field. As a youth coach or parent, it is your duty to teach the game in a respectful and simple way. So, be sure to take your job seriously and show your baseball team how to play and love the game of baseball. That will put smiles on everyone's faces, especially the boys!
