[size=18]what the coaches are looking for[/size].

A guy who gets to the park/ area early … ahead of the crowd.
A guy who finds out ahead of time if he has to pay for parking… when and where.
A guy who doesn’t waste time … a guy who knows the value of time.
A guy who doesn’t sit on his *** with the rest of the dead weight on a bench, dugout, or on the grass.
A guy who shouts … " I’m here to be seen… LOOK AT ME NOT THEM!!"
A guy who shows up with a well stocked equipment bag – spikes, gloves, water, birth certificate, wavier forms, invitation documents if necessary, contacts if necessary, proforma applicatoins, medical forms if necessary… all in all it says I’M READY!!
A guy who doesn’t have to told to warm up, stretch, jog, get ready for a day of serious work.
A guy who’s not bashful… when asked who wants to go first? The first guy to step out of the crowd and say ME… I watch that man all day long.
A guy who knows the proper language of the game and does NOT USE PROFANITY.
A guy who looks me square in the eyes when I’m talking to him … and not looking down at the grass … I want eye contact … I want a guy who thinks I’m important enough to listen to … the first time.
A guy who doesn’t get upset when things don’t go his way … maturity, maturity, maturity.
A guy who doesn’t bring mom and dad to the side lines talking up a storm about how great he is… that opinion will soon be fact … when and to what extent I SAY SO. Mom and dad have their place, and an important place it is… but in perspective.
Leave the girl friend(s) at home. They can be a distraction that will … and I’ve seen this more often hurt some really great ball players … go against the grain of a lot of people trying to work that day … like me.
A guy that doesn’t fall into a “field click”. In other words a group that hangs around together … bad mouths others under their breath … has a good time at the expense of other players, etc…

Steve responded to a similar question like this: your going to a job interview and first impressions are heavy weights to your future and initial career, so go with a professional mindset, pay attention to the work at hand, and show em your professional stock.

In short, when a coaching group, assistants, staffers and specialist are looking at you … they’re also looking at their job security too. So if your going to show anyone less then a professional demeanor … forget it. And on that note … let’s say that your stuff just wasn’t the thing of first round draft pick material … but there was something … just something that impressed the right person at the right time, in the right mood, looking for that certain talent that’s workable … … you get the picture.

On many an open field session I’ve seen talent that just needed the right touch of adjustments, train’g, … a little change here or there and I’ve got myself a first class prospect that everybody else missed!

Coach B.

Thanks a lot, that helped me too!

How did the pitching clinic go?

In all 4 years in college, I never was able to beat Wichita State. Conference team. They just had my number. Probably b/c my dad made such a big deal about them growing up. Always made it feel like the Yankees.

Anyways … how’d it go? Did you get to meet Gene or Kranitz?

Sorry Steve… I tried to let it go… but I just couldn’t…

Coach “K” is Coach Kemnitz"

anyways Louisburgrebel, I hope you learned something, had a positive attitude and let them know how much you love being at the ballpark.

GO SHOX!!

The Pitching Clinic was awesome loved the turf on the field and it was just warm enough that we could actually go on the field for some drills. Coach Kemnitz was hilarious he really knew his stuff. we split into 4 to 5 men groups and they had 45 min. stations located throughout the club house. First we went to weights with kritter he was cool. then we went up stairs to pitch and kemnitz and this scout from the twins was watching us. I got picked first… i did really well i threw 7 of 7 for strikes, I’m not big on bragging the other kids had some potential, but the other 3 guys were freshman i was a sophomore so i did a little better than them. after that we went to Kemnitz office to let him critic us. he told me i had some potential and i was turning my body a little too soon, i fixed that within 2 pitches btw. Then, we went to the breaking ball station where we threw our junk i had a great volcon change up and the curve was ok for the first time throwing it in a while. After that we went to Hajj A.K.A. Ichiro he was the best station he told us some good training exercises and what to eat. Then we went to the video room to study how and when to pitch the ball in certain situations which was a little boring but worth it. That concluded the Camp. It was really fun my bud Ethan said it was way better than the KU showcase.
