In this episode I give an update on how my season coaching has gone giving ZERO signs from third base. We don’t use the bunt sign, steal sign, hit-and-run…any of them. How has this worked? I also elaborate on excuses that players make and the standard players are held to in playing or sitting out due to injury or other factors. Lastly, I discuss routines and why they’re so important.
