...... but the pitching coach and I don't really see "eye to eye
The personal chemistry between people on a ball club is what Makes a Ball Club.
I’ve had issues with some of the players that I’ve coached, and at times I’ve been just too thick headed to see beyond the foolishness of my immaturity by making a snap judgment of who I was dealing with.
In every single case that I can remember, and I’m only speaking for myself now, it’s been me that’s come up on the short end of the stick – not the other way around. I lost some outstanding pitching talent that I didn’t have to.
It took me a while to get over this stupidly, because I had to adjust my way of doing business. Not easy for a man with authority, let me tell you. And the sorry fact was – everyone who I was associated with knew it.
When this prejudgment thing finally started to affect my professionalism as a coach, I was told bluntly to change.
Perhaps… just maybe, there’s a coach or two out there that have their day
penciled in on their boss’s calendar with a side note …”he changes or else”.
On the other hand, some people plug along in spite of themselves and youngsters like yourself have to just deal with it. And in that regard, I doubt if anything that I can say will make the process any easier for you, except a stronger will on your part to see it through.
I sincerely wish you all the best in your baseball experience.
