The one thing I notice is the lack of throwing ability of many players including infielders, outfielders, and catchers. Let me explain: As a kid that grew up in the 60’s and 70″s we would go out to the backyard and play whiffle ball. We would mimic Major Leaguers that threw side arm, 3/4 , overhand, and submarine. We would then play football and throw like Joe Willie Namath, Johnny U, Len Dawson and Darrel Lomonica. The next day we would play basketball and bounce pass like Jerry West and throw the deep outlet pass like Russell or Wilt. Now fast forward to today with kids that only play one sport and they look goofy throwing a football, or playing basketball. The end result shows up in the poor throwing mechanic I see today. The ability to throw, especially other types of balls, helps develop a sense of body mechanics that can help a player adjust so that pain and effort is minimized.

He could remember your name the first day of class. Also, if you played in his softball class you had to tryout and get drafted. The only activity class I ever took where people who graduated came back to play. The only other coach that could fill an auditorium was John Wooden. His clinics were priceless.

I was there with Coach in 1990. I played for him and was mentored by him. There are so many more great stories and memories. There are so many coaches influencing athletes today in a positive way because of Coach. He lives on via those that learned from him. Great man, great coach, great father, great husband and the list goes on.

Miss coach but speak his words daily.

Comment on Incredible Story Of Troy’s Chase Smartt by Charla Beauchamp http://baseballnews.com/incredible-story-troys-chase-smartt/#comment-112588 Mon, 01 May 2017 19:35:50 +0000 http://baseballnews.com/?p=9547#comment-112588 My son Caleb is a bilateral cochlear implant kid. We met with Chase at a recent Troy game. He was amazing with Caleb. So gentle and so sweet. They played catch and practiced batting. Caleb found a new hero that day. Chase is a great role model for Caleb. We can’t wait to see him play again soon. His story is such an inspiration to Caleb, and I am sure so many others. Coach Smartt was a wonderful host and super helpful as an experienced cochlear parent.

Comment on Mental Approach Must Be Worked On by Sandra Johnson http://baseballnews.com/mental-hitting-approach-must-be-worked-on/#comment-111799 Mon, 06 Feb 2017 11:47:19 +0000 http://baseballnews.com/?page_id=4127#comment-111799 Yes, it is true that hitting is not all about physical mechanism. But, without physical excellence, a good hitting shouldn’t be expected. Actually practice improves both the physical and mental mechanism. However, you said well that our mind wants to be trained, taught and practiced.

Tucson is home of that other Arizona school.
