Coaching Philosophy is centered upon, the “Basic Fundamentals” of the game. I believe in playing the Game as a Team and not as an Individual. Mistakes will happen on the Baseball field, as a coach it is my responsibility to make that mistake a “Teaching Moment” through positive reinforcement and make the game “Fun” to play
