Q&A from Inside Pitch magazine:…

TweetDeck : Coaches’ Corner with Wisconsin H.S. Coach Tom O’Connell

I dont believe in the after-game chalk talk. Players hate that. We’ll start the next practice off with a meeting, and
I’ll ask our players what do we need to work on today?


iPhone : “My best advice would be to be careful what you say. We’re all driven to win, but you have to understand that this is just a game. Try to enjoy it. Part of the reason we do this is because we don’t have to get a real job!”

TweetDeck : The Change Up: Seungpyo Choi

I believe baseball culture is dependent upon the society where it belongs to...It is not unusual for young kids to be berated by their coaches loudly, which is not a good learning environment...
