One family: Four Major League Baseball Draft selections (Pirates, Orioles, Blue Jays and Mariners). The level of success in one household is a testament to my Dad's commitment and dedication to give his sons the baseball know-how and competitive edge to compete and succeed on the baseball diamond. Let me attempt to do for you what my Dad did for us.
Lil Diamonds™ is a program whose mission is to teach and instruct the fundamentals of playing baseball. I've used two key tools to develop this program. First, I took baseball insights derived from my experiences playing different levels of baseball - youth, high school, college and as a professional player in the minor leagues. Second, I used my experience as a certified New Jersey high school teacher where I mastered the art of giving information to kids in a way they'd understand and retain. I'm giving you a gift to give your child - a road map for success in the game of youth baseball.
The Lil Diamonds™ program is designed to make your child successful in playing the game of baseball while also having loads of fun. Keep in mind, when your child is successful the game becomes fun. At an early age Fun Is a Factor™. The Lil Diamonds™ program is designed to keep your child engaged by having good success and thus having loads of fun. The more fun your child has playing baseball the more time he/she will spend working on their baseball skill set.
The goal of this program is to simplify and assist you in helping your child build a firm baseball foundation through understanding the game of baseball, as well as benefiting through good performance. This feat is achieved from following specific coaching instructions and participating in selective baseball drills designed to enhance your child's overall skill set. This makes the game of baseball a positive, active sports hobby to be enjoyed and cherished by all.
