If you’re a baseball coach and you want to win more games this season, then this is the video for you! Here are 5 baseball coaching tips to win more baseball games this season!

1) Establish A Team Goal On Day 1

When we can get our players to understand the big picture on day one and all commit to strive to accomplishing this goal, the chances of us doing so are a lot higher than if we never establish this goal together.

2) Have A Strategy For Player Development

Although this video is about winning more baseball games, without developing our players they will never play to their full potential. If we can get them closer to their full potential by focusing some on player development, then in return we will have a better team and win more games.

3) Know Your Players

If we know our players, their capabilities, how they respond to tough situations, then we will know best how to utilize them for success. If we have a pitcher that we know can get through tough situations, perhaps we leave him in longer when he’s struggling. On the other hand, if we have a player that we know crumbles in certain situations, perhaps we have a shorter leash on him. The better we know our players, the better we’ll be able to motivate and manage them so that we can have success as a team.

4) Know Your Opponents

Just as knowing our own players is important, so is knowing our opponents. If we know that they have a catcher with a weak arm, perhaps we’ll steal more bases that game. If we know the holes in their line up, then we can help our pitchers pitch to them. The better we know our opponents, the more we can exploit their weaknesses by being better on our end. In return, we will win more games.

5) Promote A Winning Atmosphere

Joe Maddon of the Chicago Cubs does a great job of promoting a winning atmosphere. Before the games there is always something fun going on in the locker room. After the games, if the team wins, the locker room atmosphere is like a party. The fun before the game keeps the players loose and in a good state of mind and energy and they look forward to winning because they know what is waiting for them after the game if they win. Try to be like Joe Maddon!
